Workspaces for Creative Global Nomads / Digital Nomads

ImpactHub-map-notext

No matter where we live in the world, we all visit websites set up by artists and creatives based around the globe. With multinational organizations such as Impact Hub it’s becoming increasingly easier for travelers, who often refer to themselves as Digital Nomads, to physically travel from their homes in cold, snowy climates to live as expatriates in warmer and relatively less expensive countries and easily maintain their online presence–be it social media activity, keeping-up their own websites or blogs, or expanding their online income streams to pay their living expenses while on the road. Impact Hub currently has 77 open co-working centers around the world. Impact Hub considers themselves a community of entrepreneurs, creatives, and professionals who use the workspaces and wi-fi connections for a monthly fee, or even rent a permanent desk, so that Digital Nomads have a space to drink coffee with vibrant people while growing their online businesses.

Another such space in San Francisco’s Chinatown is 1920C a “coworking collective and creativity hub” offering workspace and gallery space to global creative nomads.

Digital Nomads traveling to Cape Town, South Africa can get shared office space, a desk, internet / wi-fi, office facilities, and coffee at MiniOffice and other spaces coming soon via the Co-Working Community of South Africa.

Do visual artists really need to stay in one place to create?

Point B Art has “Worklodges” which are centers in cities throughout the world specifically for “globally mobile creative professionals,” to encourage “trans-disciplinary and cross-cultural exchanges.”  Worklodges contain casual communal gathering areas such as cafe areas and rooftop gardens, office spaces for arts related businesses, reference libraries, presentation areas for private showings, conference rooms and lecture halls, shorter-term work/live studio lofts, as well as private, longer term studios for in-house local artists as a unique resource to visiting Creative Global Nomads. Each Worklodge is unique, with a small number (8 to 25) private work/live studio lofts for transient lodgers to quickly begin working upon arrival.
Point B Worklodges contain Work/live studio lofts such as in this diagram —

image_history

A Worklodge studio is composed of a good living space and a good working space. These work/live studios were built as “Solotats,” that is, habitats for solo exploration that offer flexibility and maximize creative out-put. The studios contain big, long work tables and clear walls with lots of room to pin things up, lay things out– space for physical thinking processes.

Because they are all mid-career professionals, the lodgers in these Worklodges know that the other creative people there are in a similar place in their lives. One of the benefits of staying at a Point B Worklodge is that one becomes part of a network of creative people around the world who are working and traveling abroad.

Point B is transitioning from their former space, to a new location in Brooklyn, New York, while they are also in the process of opening a new Worklodge in Lisbon, Portugal and will begin taking applications this coming in the Spring or Summer of 2016.

 You can find out many more details on the Point B Art website here.
 I first learned of Point B when they began following my @TransArtGuide Twitter account.  Follow Point B on Twitter here.

Story and Alt Space: 2 That Combine Art Magazine + Art Gallery + Art Shop

Both Story and Alt Space present interesting concepts based on the combination of magazine, shop and art gallery–perhaps each coming from a different direct.

While Story changes their retail space every 4-6 weeks like an art gallery to focus on a new theme, Alt Space began as a magazine that expanded into a gallery and shop in Brooklyn. These may seem like subtle differences, yet I think visual artists might examine both to stimulate their thinking for new ways to present their work.

Many artists set up a website that acts as an archive for images of their work. Perhaps it’s time to dust things off and rethink such a presentation, making it more dynamic. Regular changes will result in news for their blog, and social media activity, creating plenty to Tweet about and share on other platforms and bringing more visitors to the artist’s website.

Screenshot 2016-01-06 at 10.13.12 PM

They began as a magazine called Alt Citizen. ALT CITIZEN welcomes submissions of any and all content that expands the imagination and creative energy. They’re a community of writers, photographers, thinkers. Please send all music, musings, photos, videos, collages, art and any other thing that you would like considered –Submission details here.

Alt Citizen recently opened a gallery and shop in Brooklyn called Alt Space.  They also have a new online store altspaceshop.com! Featuring some of their favorite artists and designers.

Alt Space has been labeled Revivers of DIY, “where art and fashion seamlessly collide” by Bullett Magazine. They host monthly exhibitions and events to a growing collective of local creatives and consumers alike. Curators include Alt Citizen Editor-in-Chief Nasa Hadizadeh, Style artist Phil Gomez, and Artist Grace Miceli.

Artwork from current and past exhibitions, fashion, and accessories are personally selected by AltSpace curators for the shops. Most items are artist made, limited, and/or exclusive to Alt Space. Stay updated on Alt Space by following on Twitter: @altspacebrooklyn.

Big Ink Open Call Collaborative Large Woodcut Project and More

'Portrait of Hagiwara Sakutarô', woodblock print by Onchi Kôshirô, 1943, 1st edition, National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo

‘Portrait of Hagiwara Sakutarô’, woodblock print by Onchi Kôshirô, 1943, 1st edition, National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo

The Big Ink website and blog has a current call to artists to take part in a collaborative large woodcut project. Monumental prints inspire artists and the public alike to think big, set long-term goals, and have the perseverance to see complex projects to fruition.

Each year artists from all backgrounds including sculpture, photography, painting, and print participate. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut at least 24 x 36 inches in dimension via an open call for entry.  If accepted, artists are given two months to carve their image into a piece of plywood.  At the end of the two months, all the artists meet for a printing session at a local print studio and help one another print their woodcuts onto paper. Typically between 30 to 36 hand pulled prints are produced during two days of printing sessions. Each artist donates one print to the BIG INK portfolio.

Urban Outfitters Takes Artist’s Artwork Found Online, Prints On Mini Skirt–Without Artist’s Consent!

blogtumblr_n5xovxTWPT1qztou0o2_r1_1280

Artist James Soares aka Spires, sells his art prints and art designs printed on 3-D items in his store on the e-commerce site Society 6. Spires created the above side-by-side comparison of his artwork obviously used on the Urban Outfitters mini skirt.  On his Tumblr blog the artist is asking others to reblog his story and share. The Huffington Post wrote this article about the design printed on the mini skirt without the artist’s knowledge, permission, any licensing contract, or payment. The Village Voice published an article on the mini skirt design yesterday. In the comments from readers of the Huffington Post article, one artist wrote, “It’s happened to me. I had my painting “Arizona Sunset” turned into a print for a dress . . . flattering and maddening at the same time.”

According to other artists, and other news stories, Urban Outfitters has copied more than one jewelry design. A necklace in the shape of New York State with a heart cut out, that was designed by Etsy artist Stevie Koerner and available in his e-commerce Etsy store as part of his United States of Love line, appeared in a new Urban Outfitters line of the same name. Steve Koerner wrote, in part, “The World/United States of Love line that I created is one of the reasons that I was able to quit my full-time job.  They even stole the item name as well as some of my copy.”  The story of this design theft appeared, with photos, in the Huffington Post article Urban Outfitters Steal and on the artist’s Tumblr page as Not Cool Urban Outfitters.

Some non-artist commenters on the recent Huff mini skirt article bring up questions of originality. Are these original designs– a map of New York state, the heart shape, a landscape of an Arizona sunset in a painting, or the geometric triangle pattern in the artist’s print (the one obviously copied and used on the mini skirt)? Haven’t we seen these things before and aren’t they part of our collective consciousness owned by all?  Another question, does Urban Outfitters work with another company, BamBam, and are they responsible for the ripped off artist’s design on the mini skirt? Yet, it’s also reported  by The Brooklyn Paper, and in an article in The Village Voice that an Indie jewelry designer selling at a Brooklyn flea market found her designs sold as very similar items by Urban Outfitters. Are such artworks and designs deliberately searched for, copied and used by large companies for the very reason that they doubt small business owners have the resources to fight back? Can these artists prove loss-of-income or originality of design?

It is time-consuming for artist-owners of small businesses to pursue matters legally,  yet one artist that we featured in our blog last year did just that. She received a check in payment, compensating her for the unauthorized use of her artwork on three album covers. The lawyer she worked with was available free of charge via Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.

I’ve always found the Huffington Post to be artist friendly–publishing artist news  and featuring quality art news columns by several writers. Is Huffington Post the largest news source to cover these matters for artists? The Village Voice supports artists with reports on these artist rip-offs as well.

I can’t help but wonder how many times they get away with it? That is, how many times do such infringements go unnoticed in relation to the few instances companies are caught in outright copyright infringement?

Artists Connect With Brooklyn Based Microscope Gallery in Facebook Group

There are many ways artists connect with gallerists–meeting and talking with them at Basel Miami, iPad portfolio in hand, is one way.

Artists can also do research online to find and connect with gallerists in groups on LinkedIN, Google+ and Facebook.

The MICROSCOPE Gallery in Brooklyn New York presents film, video, sound, performance, new media and other time-based artists through exhibitions, screenings and other events.  The gallery also has a Facebook group. This open group is a place for artists to connect with the people at Microscope Gallery.

Many galleries accept proposals from artists, or have open submission policies as well as seasonal calls for submissions.

Last month, I helped a small group of artists write a gallery proposal for a group show in a New York City gallery. One of the artists mentioned that the gallery website states that they are not currently accepting proposals, but that when she emailed the gallery she was invited to submit an artist proposal. The proposal we put together contained the bio, CV, and exhibition history of each artist, as well as images of their artwork and descriptions of their art making processes. The proposal proved to be an excellent way for these artists to introduce themselves to the curators at that particular gallery, as well as enter into the gallery system. Plus the proposal was structured for future updating, and use–each of the artists can expand, adapt, add new work, or develop the proposal further to use for other opportunities. If you would like to learn more about artist proposals, contact me, Marie Kazalia, via email: MarieKazalia@gmail.com

Finding time to research gallery opportunities can be an issue for many artists. That’s why Artist Marketing Resources put together a 200 page list of clickable links for artist to research and connect with art galleries world-wide. This research list cuts down on artist research time and helps artists quickly identify gallery opportunities. In the PDF, galleries currently accepting submissions, proposals, or that offer artists other opportunities to show their work( such as alternative galleries that have storefront exhibition programs and sales venues), are highlighted in yellow. That way artist quickly check under a region heading, note which galleries are accepting submissions and proposals, and visit those gallery site to learn more.

One hour each day researching the International Art Gallery PDF will provide you with many new opportunities and a better understanding of galleries in any region. The PDF currently has extensive sections containing links to galleries in major art centers such New York City and Brooklyn, the California cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco, Chicago, London, Berlin, and cities in China, Canada, and Australia, as well as, growing lists of links to galleries in other cities in the USA, Europe, Asia, and South America.

Our own research is ongoing, and as new galleries open their doors we quickly add them to our PDF gallery list.

Artists should feel free to contact us with any questions, needs, or requests. We love hearing from you.

Open Call For Recession Art’s Facts And Fictions Submissions are open for Facts and Fictions, our Spring 2013 show at Recession Art and the Invisible Dog.Deadline Monday March 11, 11:59pm

Facts and Fictions, curated by co-founder and Art Director, Ani Katz, will present works that explore themes of fiction, narrative, storytelling, and the tension between what is true and what is real.

In a photograph, your friend is no longer your friend; he is a pattern of light and shadow and geometry on a piece of paper or a screen, and nothing about him exists beyond the discrete parcel of time in which you made the exposure. There is a fiction in every photograph. However, just because something isn’t true doesn’t mean it can’t be real. One can see and believe in ways that have nothing to do with truth.

Facts and Fictions welcomes work in all media and a variety of presentations, with a particular focus on photographic and lens-based work, artist books, and other narrative media.

The Print-A-Day Project of NYC Artist Michael Krasowitz

Michael Krasowitz print

About 6 weeks ago, Michael Krasowitz started his blog The Daily Krasowitz where he posts a new fine art print each day. As Michael said,

“The goal is to create a print a day for the year ahead and write a bit about the experience.”

The artist also reports that he has had over one thousand blog views so far, already exceeding his expectation.

His fine art prints are really quite amazing, as you can see by the two examples here. View many more images of his work on the Daily Krasowitz.
