Daily Rush
Season 3: Proxy


Working in digital media and unofficial research, the artists making up Season 3 of Daily Rush confront problems around the proxy — exploring methodologies of representation, self-image, and historical rendering through the production of surrogates, stand-ins, and substitutes. With works by Kara Gut, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Clare Gatto, Jess Johnson and Simon Ward, and The New Red Order, this season presents diverse perspectives on virtuality, simultaneity, designation, and commemoration

Daily Rush is the new media platform of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. New seasons of Daily Rush are released semiannually, with works by visual artists and filmmakers whose production lies in-between digital media, contemporary art, and moving image. Each season of Daily Rush is grounded in emerging ideas on digital culture and technology by artists, writers, and curators from Detroit and beyond.

Daily Rush is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and curated by Pat Elifritz, Curator of New Media and Technology. Daily Rush is generously supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Seasons 1-3 of Daily Rush are presented in partnership with Daata.

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation supports the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit in experimenting with technology and new media to engage regional and international audiences within and beyond the museum walls. In addition to Daily Rush, supported programs include the exhibition series Unboxing; the longterm emerging technologies initiative Radix: Experience in the Age of Digital Everywhere; and a series of future-focused, tech-based investments across the MOCAD campus.
