The End of Irony and the Birth of New Sincerity | JadaTalks

JadaTalks Presents: The End of Irony and the Birth of New SincerityDuring Paris Art Week, JadaTalks presents a conversation on The End of Irony and the Birth of New Sincerity. New Sincerity repudiates the idea of irony and any other concept that purposely distorts meaning. The new sincerity movement strives to communicate an earnest meaning clearly and concisely. For too long we have relied on irony to express our ideas and our relationships with one another. The future today calls for naivete and sincerity in the way we approach one another to ensure that nothing gets lost in translation across the hybrid digital / physical landscape that we currently operate out of. Tune in on October 24, 2020 at Noon EST to hear from our guest speaker Cheselyn Amato, Suzanne Khalil, Ph.D. and co-founder of Jada, Jonatas during this online and live streaming art conversation.

Meme Warfare | JadaTalks

JadaTalks Presents: Meme Warfare During Paris Art Week, JadaTalks presents a conversation on Meme Warfare. One of the most discussed topics of the last 5 years has been the commodification of online behavioral data by tech companies and the many ways that this data is sold, analyzed, and utilized. When this data is sold to advertisers or political campaigns it is then transformed into aesthetically targeted online content designed to elicit a certain kind of response from the viewer. This phenomenon brings forth many questions: Is this a new frontier in advertising or an invasion of privacy? Who owns the rights to my online behavioral data? What are we agreeing to when we accept the terms and conditions? What kind of imagery is going to provoke a response out of you?

The Rise of Digi-Romantic Artists | JadaTalks

JadaTalks Presents: The Rise of Digi-Romantic ArtistsDuring Paris Art Week, JadaTalks presents a conversation on The Rise of Digi-Romantic Artists. Digi-Romanticism is defined by Jada as a term that depicts a social paradigm-shift among creatives, whose works contain an emotional appeal that clashes and contrasts with the fast-paced technological ethos in which they exist. Their production is often narrative-based, and aims to reclaim grand-narratives and utopian themes — as a reaction to the search for meaning and deeper content in daily life during confinement, which deprived all of the constant multi-sensorial stimulation of life pre-Covid19 Pandemic.

Tune in on October 23, 2020 at 11 AM EST to hear from our guest speaker John Selburg​, Assistant Professor of Broward College during this online and live streaming art conversation.   If our dreams arise out of the recorded imagery of everyday life, assembled as neurons fire out of context and out of order but with the semblance of sense and reality – then John Selburg’s drawings are somewhat like dreams. The artist, an MFA in Drawing (University of Missouri, 2009), lives on the Atlantic Coast of South Florida, adjacent to protected habitat where tropical flora and fauna thrive. Dense with the likes of endangered orchids, sea turtles, and wild apes, Selburg’s real environment might seem surreal to most. This is the fodder for his...
