Scott S. Solda, President, of the Art Installer Network contacted us with details on the co-op of freelancers he has assembled– “The ART INSTALLER NETWORK has essentially eliminated the need to pay for an art installer’s travel expenses. We have experienced and insured art installers in every North American city! Insured and experienced local professionals will install your art at affordable prices.”

In Las Vegas Market THe ARt INSTALLER NETWORK installed about 500 pieces in a week

“We are a co-op of freelance installers. Prices have been standardized. Sales, scheduling and billing are handled efficiently by the central office. Installers agree to work at a discounted rate and savings are passed on to our customers, a mixture of designers, framers, facility managers and homeowners.”

The ART INSTALLER NETWORK does a lot of art installation in corporate settings, and in the Las Vegas Market their art handlers installed roughly 500 pieces in one week. “We’ll do this twice a year for art providers who show their products in the markets of Atlanta, High Point, and Dallas,” said Scott S. Solda.

Artists, let your collectors know about the Art Installer Network to help make the  sale–

 

I asked Scott S. Solda how visual artists might use the services of the ART INSTALLER NETWORK. Perhaps artists would like to recommend the services of the ART INSTALLER NETWORK to their collectors for home installation of larger paintings, sculpture/3D art installation projects?
“Artists and photographer​s have occasionally referred us to install their work, though more often than not, the projects are those of a designer. In regards to residential vs corporate installers, we have both.  An installer working a large scale install in a senior living facility uses different hardware and skill sets than one installing in a private residence. Our best large-scale installers have a strong FF&E background and deal well with the logistical challenges of large commercial installations.  We have a few Interior Designers working as installers and they work very well in residential installations. And yes, we have installers who work with sculptures, mural installations and a few as museum preparators, too.  We don’t get many calls for work in galleries.
A number of years ago, when working a job in Dallas for a Milwaukee-based art provider, I met an art installer local to that market who had recently installed in Milwaukee for a Dallas-based art provider. “What a waste!”, I thought. That meeting was the impetus for creating the Network.”

New Calls for Artists

CALL FOR A COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION
a project of FKL (Forum Klanglandschaft) – The Rad’Art Project / Artéco association
For this exhibition artists are asked to imagine a device which protects humans from excessive noise or sound– something like the way sunglasses protect us from excessive light, as an accessory, a nice object to be worn. Sunglasses, very common objects, initially just useful, became a “vanity object”, a habit, a vice, and many famous designers started designing them, so their meaning and usefulness became something more.Now, especially in cities, there is another sense organ which is subjected to an excessively strong stimulation: our ears. Reports about the acoustic pollution in our cities are worrying and the limitations to the intensity of noise which the laws impose are indiscriminate and generally not enough to defend us adequately from the dangerous consequences.It may be necessary, thus, to use a device which provides a filter to sounds, as the sunglasses filter light. It could also become necessary and urgent to design such devices not only considering their usefulness, as in the case of the ear muffs which defend the workers from acoustic stress, but also considering their “design”.

They could be a precious or fashion object which could be worn with pride, pleasure, enjoyment.
Starting from this vision of such a possible future, we are proposing to all interested in collaborating,  to design or build an object which can be used for this purpose: protect our hearing–design devices with different shapes, with different filtering degrees for different needs.

These purposefully designed and built prototypes will be exhibited in December 2012 at Rad’Art (Mercato Saraceno), and published in a catalogue along with written descriptions.

FKL and Artéco reserve the possibility to organize, with the collected materials, further exhibitions, in Italy and abroad.
AURICOLI DA RUMORE is a metaphorical operation: the objects we will exhibit, even if they actually work, won’t be easily wearable at this moment. By simulating such a need, and designing such an object, we mainly intend to make us think about the existence of a real problem.
We wish to point out that we are not asking for a technologically efficient object: we are staying within a symbolic and poetic universe.
The sunglasses defend us from sunshine, which is a natural thing, and cannot be eliminated.
The Auricoli da Rumore, instead, should defend us from acoustic pollution, which is a typically human problem, and we wish that its solution will follow also different and more radical ways.

Please, send your work (objects, prototypes, projects and/or photos), together with a short written explanation and a short curriculum vitae ( preferably in Word), to this address by 09.30.2012:
