March 7-28: In Real Life is an exhibition at the Capricious Space where several online art spaces are invited to do 4 hour long residencies in the gallery.

VVORK is the first website to take the space and they are bringing a male stripper to do a slow strip for 4 hours while surfing the internet.

Also involved: Art Fag City, ASDF, Club Internet, Ffffound, The Highlights, Humble Arts Foundation, I Heart Photograph, Loshadka, Netmares/Netdreams, Platform for Pedagogy, Private Circulation, UbuWeb, Why + Wherefore.
