In a place with countless apps and gadgets to choose from a Divalicious woman is all about being on the go, being in the know and having instant connection to everything she needs when she needs it ΓÇª no filter, no strings attached!
DivaGal contributor Tsadiqwah Scarville, was front and center among some of New York’s most creative free-thinkers for a private event entitled TAGGED, held at the W Hotel-New York.
Global arts organizer Liberatum curated the event that included an exclusive mobile photo exhibit of never seen before mobile uploads from the cityΓÇÖs most notable socialites, like Jake Shears, Mickey Boardman and The Misshapes.
A swanky guest panel, which included Shala Monroque, creative director of Garage Magazine, and actress/celebrity famous daughter Scout Willis, discussed art and photography, and how life through technology (or what many are now calling ΓÇ£iPhonographyΓÇ¥) has revolutionized the social media landscape and the notion of “scene or been seen.”
“With some venues banning photos and others encouraging it, people are still treading the water lightly to determine what is and isnΓÇÖt appropriate when it comes to mixing social life, photography and technology,” declared Liberatum founder Pablo Ganguli.
I had a quick chat with Scout about her ΓÇ£Free the NippleΓÇ¥ campaign, a protest against InstagramΓÇÖs censorship policy, and her thoughts on visual aesthetics and the presentation of the human body. She made one very clear point about social media and I think it rules: “Does your art really belong to you?”
The TAGGED photo exhibition will run through July 22, with the closing reception hosted by Lucky magazine editor and social media expert Eva Chen. And get this fellow gals: Guests who post their own social photos to Twitter and Instagram with #WTAGGED in the caption, will have a chance to get VIP access to the series, as well as having your photos be a part of the Liberatum and W Tagged photo exhibit.
