Studio Visit Site for Making Reservations to Visit Artist Studios

 

Jacks Pollock's studio floor in the Pollock Krasner house.

Jacks Pollock’s studio floor in the Pollock Krasner house.

We took a few days off during the Christmas holiday week and now we’re back to share the really great Studio Visit site that artists and collectors will want to know about. It’s an artist studio reservation service that is provided completely free to artists and collectors.

Studio Visit is a website for collectors to make reservations to visit artist studios searchable by city and country. So far, the main studio locations listed are cities in Germany, Spain, Mexico, Belgium and the Netherlands. Once you add your studio location your city will appear in the available locations.

Artists simply register with their studio address, name, and at least one picture of their studio. Artist/studios can add up to ten pictures of their studio space, up to ten images of their artwork, a Google map view, artist CV/Statement and other menu options.

The Studio Visit website provides a booking system. Through this system potential buyers and collectors will request a studio visit only on the days, times, and for the duration that the artist or studio configures. The booking system will ask for basic contact information from the collector that will be seen only by the artist/ studio they request to visit.

Once a collector books a studio visit reservation the studio will receive an email. In the studio account menu option RESERVATION MANAGE the reservation booking can be approved or rejected. If approved the collector will receive an email and can only go ahead with the studio visit appointment with this confirmation email.

News of this service is provided to you by the Artist Marketing Resources blog For the past six years, Artist Marketing Resources has been providing information to artists.

Exchanghibition Bank Projects: Artist Exhibition Interactive Performance Series

Exchanghibition Bank

I received this amazing email recently. Enjoy! and perhaps reading will spark ideas of your own.

hey Marie Kazalia
I noticed this page of yours about Money and Art – http://pinterest.com/mariekazalia/money-art/ – and thought you might be interested in my Art as Money project, so decided to send you some pics, text and links…….
anyway
here below I copy-pasted some links and text
A bit over two years ago I started my own bank as an artist – the Exchanghibition Bank. It’s a traveling bank booth, which pops up at many places. Some of them are cultural, such as the Rijks-, Boijmans and Stedelijk Museum, or Paradiso. Others are very public, such as Amsterdam Central Station, Occupy, or even shopping centers. Visitors can exchange their money for our banknotes of Zero, Million, Infinite, and others.
Short 90 second video showing a bit more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6d0CvhFSto
The bank has also traveled to the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, which is based on a gift-economy and where money doesn’t exist. Here our customers could sign a Spiritual Karma Laundering contract to bring their spiritual Karma debt back to Zero, and would get a Zero banknote in return.
Last summer we built another project in the Nevada desert – the Transformoney Tree. It’s a tree which has the Exchanghibition banknotes hanging as leaves from its branches while the tree itself got covered in real banknotes, glued onto it by participants. People turned those banknotes into art, by drawing and painting on them. I think it would actually be great to make the tree come to Zurich and organize workshops where bankers could turn money into art and glue it on the tree 😉

Here’s a video of a talk I gave at the Boom Festival in Portugal about money: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MKhbFJBpkU
And here’s an interview from a few weeks ago when we did a whole week of events and performances in Berlin with the bank:
The website of the project is http://www.exchanghibitionbank.com and the Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/artasmoney
I enclosed pics of performances with the bank, the tree in the desert, some banknotes (all the originals of the banknotes are real paintings……) and
some black and white drawings.
So far. I guess that will give you a bit more to explore 😉
Yours Bankingly and Dreamingly

CEO and Founder Exchanghibition Bank
In a 2nd email he sent– and here by the way is my new project Like 4 Real, which I started working on website went online yesterday: http://www.like4real.com
Do you dare to take the Red Like?
All the information about is on the crowdfunding site (yes, it’s all about the money………)

Thousands of Artists Vie For Wall Space/Thousands Queue-up to View Deutsche Bank Exhibit

On April 3rd, along with many other art news sources, we published this opportunity for artists to hang their paintings in the new Deutsche Bank exhibition space.

The news spread, and Berlin area artist Emily Pütter reports that more than one thousand artists, all carrying paintings, stood in a queue several kilometers long along the main streets of Berlin hoping to hang their work on Deutsche Bank exhibition space walls. Artists arrived on bicycles, by car, and walking, only to talk and laugh with the other artists who also had no chance of getting in. Many stood in the snow and cold for hours hoping to hang their art. Emily says, “There will be another one at the end of the month.” So apparently Deutsche Bank plans to do this every few weeks.

Later, after the show opened to the public, Emily attended the exhibition–waiting 2 hours to get in–while Deutsche Bank provided hot tea, coffee, and sausages to those waiting on the street in the cold.

Once Emily got inside the show– “there were piano players, food and drinks, and a great ambience,” she said.

At the end of 2013, ikono will produce a short retrospective film highlighting all selected works to conclude the series.

The entire collection of open call interviews and films will remain available as an archive on Artconnect Berlin’s and ikono’s websites for general public access.

How to submit:

  1. You will need an artist’s profile on Artconnect Berlin’s website, which is free and easy to create under www.artconnectberlin.com. Feel free to upload as many files as you want, as this is a great tool to connect with other artists in your area and share your art!

Slanted Magazine CUBAN POSTER ART Project

Slanted21_CUBANPOSTERART_01

Slanted magazine is a major design, illustration, and photography magazine based in Germany. Their site is in English and German and has a translation option, as well, for translating the site into other languages. If you have a book project of your own to promote, or other design related artwork, you can show your projects to Slanted magazine readers with a free portfolio account that you will receive when you buy Slanted magazine issues in their shop. On the Slanted magazine website, you will see in the upper menu *Portfolios* which has a drop-down menu list that includes Design Portfolios, Illustration Portfolios, Graphics, Interactive, and Typography. If your artwork fits any of those categories, a portfolio of your work included their could bring you visibility.

The current Slanted magazine project is a special poster issue and exhibition series–

CUBAN POSTER ART – 

The New Generation

Special Edition – SLANTED MAGAZINE #21 will be released in spring 2013. This special issue will be released as 320 page volume of Cuban poster art by the most brilliant artists working today including exhibitions complementing and illustrating the publication internationally.

GOAL: PUBLICATION AND EXPOSITION

This special issue of Slanted, CUBAN POSTER ART – The New Generation, will be released in spring 2013, attracting attention to an international level. This project has the goal to raise € 10,000 (≈ $ 13,000) additionally to our usual budget. We want to cover expenses we usually don’t have:

  1. For an exhibitions with original silkscreened posters, touring from city to city. Shipping, organization and insurances for first shows in Berlin, Leipzig and Paris will cost € 4,000 (≈ $ 5,200)
  2. Translations: The magazine will be bilingual (Spanish/English). With a volume of 320 pages we will have to translate all interviews and texts either to English or Spanish. This needs to be done professionally and will be € 4,500 (≈ $ 5,800)
  3. Additional print of 1,000 copies that will be shipped to Cuba. Whoever has been in Cuba knows how hungry Cubans are for good printed matter. Extra printing: € 1,500 (≈ $ 1,950)

This project funded will enable us to share what we see as being an extraordinary inside view into Cuban design, reflecting the reality of life in Cuba and the beauty that lies within its complexity.

A Call For Unrealized Projects

You are invited to contribute your own unrealized projects to AUP’s growing archive. Contributions can include text (DOC) and image files (two JPEGs or PDFs up to 2MB each), and can be submitted online at www.e-flux.com/aup.

Please include one paragraph describing your project.

A call for unrealized projects
Unlike unrealized architectural projects, which are frequently exhibited and circulated, unrealized artworks tend to remain unnoticed or little known. But perhaps there is another form of artistic agency in the partial expression, the incomplete idea, the projection of a mere intention? Agency of Unrealized Projects (AUP) seeks to document and display these works, in this way charting the terrain of a contingent future.Though the state of being unrealized implies the potential for realization, not all projects are intended to be carried out. In other instances, artists deliberately leave works incomplete, to record interesting “failures” or experiments. Other planned projects involve consciously utopian, non-utilitarian, and conceptual spaces that were not made available for realization. Whether censored, forgotten, postponed, impossible, or rejected, unrealized projects form a unique testament to the speculative power of non-action.AUP follows “Unbuilt Roads: 107 Unrealized Projects” collated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Guy Tortosa following several years of international research conducted in the late 1990s (and published in form of a book in 1997, Gerd Hatje, Ostfildern-Ruit, Germany), with contributions by 107 artists, from Vito Acconci to Rosemarie Trockel. Under the name of AUP these artist projects were first presented as a digital public archive by e-flux in 2009 followed by an open call for unrealized projects published by e-flux in 2011 and an AUP exhibition in Basel in 2011.This new open call for unrealized projects is launched on the occasion of a Berlin edition of AUP in collaboration with the Berliner Künstlerprogramm/ DAAD. The AUP will take up temporary residence at the daadgalerie in Berlin from September 9th to October 20th 2012 to present newly submitted projects as well as the existing inventory of the AUP archive. The daadgalerie installation of AUP will be accompanied by a public program of lectures and presentations with numerous guests considering artistic and philosophical perspectives of the “unrealized” or the “unrealizable.”

Submission for possible inclusion in AUP at the daadgalerie in Berlin will be accepted through October 20th 2012.

“Agency of Unrealized Projects” is a project by e-flux and the Serpentine Gallery London devised by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Julia Peyton-Jones, Julieta Aranda, and Anton Vidokle. The Berlin edition of AUP is conceived in collaboration with Berliner Künstlerprogramm/ DAAD.
