Artists Thrive: Raising the Value of Artists

By Genie Davis

Artists Thrive is not a single organization nor is it a collection of organizations. Rather, it helps individual artists and support organizations to live up to their ultimate potential.

The best way to uncover the personal assessment tools Artists Thrive offers, and kind of community interaction it encourages, is to visit the site and take the profile test at https://www.artiststhrive.org/

Casey Summar, a Carpinteria-based consultant on the project, discusses the context and meaning of Artists Thrive.

“It came about as a result of conversations among grantees and other organizations that the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation supports,” Summar says, of Artists Thrive’s roots. The Tremaine Foundation funds innovative projects that offer practical solutions to basic societal problems.

“The foundation is the backbone support of this. The conversation really started with…

ArtWorld Invites Artists to add their Banner Art to the Changing Online Billboard Space

A few days ago, we announced our take-over and re-opening of ArtWorld.

We’ve had a great response, already adding over a dozen artists and an artist collective to our list of Contributing Editors. Facebook says that there is no limit to the number of people we can add in roles on our page!  So we’d like to add hundreds of artists as Contributing Editors to share their art and art news.

Now we want to open up and enliven the ArtWorld banner/header space for artists to add their art banners there, as well. Our vision is a changing billboard of your art banners at the top of ArtWorld.

As a Contributing Editor, artists simply click on the CHANGE COVER button at the upper left corner of the banner header space to add their own banner–such as to announce a studio sale, online shop sale, exhibition, new work added to online portfolio, and art group or art collective events. The banner will also appear in the main page feed where the artist can then add their link and text description in a comment. Ideally, our artists will be adding new banners frequently!

Artists are also invited to create banners to brand ArtWorld and to inform visitors and label the overall space, such as, a banner with the text of your choice, or a clever aphorism or saying about art. We’d also like to see banners with the text:

ART WORLD

And perhaps some phrases such as:

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ARTISTS

Art Direct From Artists

Artists are welcome to change the cover art to any banner they create at any time! (Use your own art, your own photos with text, or art and photos by permission. We don’t want copyright infringements.)

ArtWorld is lightly curated. That means if we know you and like what you do you will be accepted. If we meet you and like what you do you will be accepted. Very few may not fit and we may have other specialized platforms for their work.  If you are a visual artist, sound artist, video or photographic artist, or handmade maker of any sort, and you’d like to find out more about becoming an ArtWorld Contributing Editor, *Like* the ArtWorld on Facebook and send a message there. Replies to messages made daily.

ArtWorld is Ours!

The Artworld Facebook page is now owned by Artist Marketing Resources!

As of November 2018 Artist Marketing Resources has taken-over the ArtWorld Facebook page in order to revive it into an active arts community where artists can share images of their work, exhibition news and articles.

CALL TO ARTISTS

Artist Marketing Resources is seeking visual artists/ sound artists/ photographic artists/ handmade makers or all kinds to contribute news about their work to the ArtWorld.

If you are an artist and would like to contribute your own art, articles, or artworks of your friends and connections, then send ArtWorld a message on Facebook to receive an automated response containing the email address for Artist Marketing Resources owner, Marie Kazalia. Send Marie an email and be sure to include a link to your online portfolio, blog or website where she can view your work. Tell her what you would like to contribute to ArtWorld and how often you can contribute. She will reply to your direct email and give you access to post to the ArtWorld page.

The ArtWorld currently has over 8,400 followers. The main goal of ArtWorld, now under ownership management of Artist Marketing Resources, is to help bring visibility to artists!

Mining the Mojave for Art: Chelsea Dean’s “Remnants of Ambition”

A wonderful exhibition that I thought my readers might like to know about!

Mining the Mojave for Art: Chelsea Dean’s Remnants of Ambition

By Genie Davis

It would be hard to underestimate the appeal of the desert as an artistic mecca. The vastness of the landscape, the shifting light, the vast horizons, and the lack of what passes for civilization or the ruins thereof is the stuff of magic to me. Ghost towns, abandoned shacks and mines, rusted trucks, and discarded furniture, the left-behinds of those who came, who stayed, who departed again, perhaps defeated by the vastness, the heat, the dryness, the sheer emptiness they could not fill – it’s a mystery the mind wants to explain, a story that no one but the vicissitudes of time and weather can account for.

It was with great anticipation, then, that I viewed the culmination of Chelsea Dean’s artist-in-residence exhibition at Shoebox Projects…

Brussels Gallery Weekend: A Performance Affair, 7-9 September 2018

8. A Performance Affair. Selected-exhibtors

A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR, THE NEW PLATFORM DEDICATED TO THE ECONOMIES OF PERFORMANCE ART is presenting a myriad of performances for sale by emerging and mid-career artists and featuring Violent Incident, an historic performance video by Bruce Nauman, an auctioned immaterial work by Philippe Parreno, an interactive performance installation by Greg Finger– A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR will put the whole spectrum of the economies of performance art on display and for discussion.

A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR ANNOUNCES ITS LIST OF PARTICIPANTS FOR THE PANOPTICON EDITION– ACTIVATING THE PANOPTICON:

9. A-Performance-Affair-Announcement-list-selected-exhibitors

The Panopticon, A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR’s first edition, transforms the second floor of the Vanderborght Building into an immersive space for three days of performances in collaboration with the Brussels Gallery Weekend (7 to 9 September 2018).

Inspired by the notion of the Panopticon and the building’s unique architecture, continuous and overlapping performance works by international artists will be presented throughout the dynamic venue.

A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR is a new Brussels based association with international outreach dedicated to performance art. Set up as a not-for-profit organisation, APA is an evolving structure that brings together artists, galleries, collectors and institutions to research and discuss current tendencies in performance art and the economic structures around it. A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR is not another art fair, but a flexible stage aimed at stimulating the acquisition of performance while finding solutions for its development and sustainability.  Events are open to the public and free of charge.

A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR is powered by Liv Vaisberg_ Office for Art & Design and Will Kerr acurated.space.

A ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION Follows:

A wrap-up event at the end of the first edition of A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR: The Panopticon Edition, the round table encourages participants, key players as well as any interested member of the public to discuss some keys questions driving the development of collecting performance art.

While there has been considerable attention around collecting performance in recent years, it remains a niche activity with narratives primarily circulating around a few key artists and collections. The round table is an opportunity for the speakers, participants in APA and members of the public to exchange and explore the conditions that need to be created to make a broader market around performance art.

Some key questions–

What commercial frameworks and strategies exist for selling, circulating and conserving performance art, and what do they have in common with those of more traditional art objects, and where do they differ? What other strategies exist for the support of performance art? What might we learn from making comparisons with economies that
exist around disciplines such as dance, music and theatre? What status do props, drawing, photography and other documentation hold, and how are they presented in relation to the live act, within market contexts and collections–both public and private?

When and Where:
Sunday 9 September, 14:00
In APA Bureau
Vanderborght Building, 2nd floor,
rue de L’Ecuyer 50 Schildknaapstraat – 1000 Brussels – Belgium

Founded in 2009, Arquetopia Foundation is an internationally established, award-winning nonprofit arts and cultural foundation with a social scope that emphasizes critical thinking through artistic practices. Our customized International Artist-in-Residence Programs are the largest and most reputable in Latin America, with an array of contents anchored in a solid structure of collaborations with prominent cultural institutions, renowned experts, and notable artists. We are invested in approaching art and art history with a critical perspective by understanding Mexico and Peru’s complexity in context and incorporating nuances in narratives and interpretation especially of the 3,000-year heritage of visual culture of these two countries. Our residency programs offer competitive professional opportunities for emerging and mid-career, national and international artists, designers, curators, art historians, art educators, writers, journalists, and cultural researchers age 22 and over.

Artists-in-residence are introduced to a better understanding of Mexico or Peru’s Mesoamerican and colonial past, its modern present, and while producing, they learn to challenge contemporary art and what are considered traditional art practices; therefore, Arquetopia aids this process with a series of weekly individual meetings, discussion, critiques, and a critical bibliography that are tailored to each artist’s needs. The ultimate goal is for artists to learn new methods and techniques while questioning their own practice in the hopes of extending the critical discussion to other communities.

We are currently welcoming applications for the following residency programs in the Sacred Valley of the Incas of Cusco, Peru:

You are Invited: Artist Patricia Johanson’s New Land Art Project

Photographer : Adam Isaac Hiscock

 

We’re happy to share images and an invitation to the new Sego Lily Dam land art project of artist Patricia Johanson in Sugar House Park, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

Patricia says, “The project is five blocks long, so impossible to photograph (in its entirety).  It continues under the highway, and through a “canyon” that is the spillway for the dam.  In the opposite direction, the stem is a trail, but also the path of flash floods, and at the end of that is the “Lily” root-bulb overlooking a creek (Parley’s Creek).”
