Seek Art

English: seek truth from facts

English: seek truth from facts (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Seek Art, a Beta site for what I refer to as high-end art, produced the RAZE site-specific exhibition in Beijing featuring a range of media, including sculpture, installations, sound, and street actions with QR-Codes appearing as part of the exhibition pointing to a media based project online.

For RAZE, the artist Zhang Ding served placebo ecstasy-shaped cakes to the viewing audience during his performance, inviting them to consume and altering their states of mind or experience through participation. The artist then took portraits of viewers.

Seek Art then produced a limited edition DVD of the RAZE exhibition, available in their /Lab.

The Seek Art shop offers limited-edition art objects created by  artists and produced by their /lab.

The SEEK-ART.com network of international artists range in medium and practice.  Michele Thursz, Founder and Artistic Director, is an independent cultural producer and consultant based in New York City. From 1999-2009, Thursz co-founded and directed Moving Image Gallery [MIG], NYC, one of the first galleries to show contemporary artists using electronic and computer-based mediums. You will find her contact information on the Seek Art site.

Collisioncollective Open Call For Tech/Artwork

The nineteenth COLLISIONcollective exhibition will open at the Boston Cyberarts Gallery in Jamaica Plain (Boston) on Friday, June 14, 2013. They’d love to consider what you’ve been working on for inclusion in the show.

If you’d like to participate, your submissions are due before midnight (eastern time, UTC-05:00), May 11, 2013.
•    Judging will be final by May 18, 2013, with notifications going out the same day[/*]
•    The show is scheduled for installation the week of June 9, 2013.[/*]
•    Opening will be 6-9 PM, Friday, June 14, 2013.[/*]
•    The show will be up for six weeks, coming down on July 27, 2013.[/*]

You are invited to submit through:  http://collisioncollective.org/mysubs

In order to submit, first add yourself as a website user (if you haven’t already done so for a prior submission), log in, and then use the My Submissions navigation link to submit your proposal. After initially submitting, you can edit your proposal up until the submission deadline. If you have several works to enter, multiple submissions are fine, but generally only one piece per person will be accepted unless they are a series. You may submit a proposal for a piece yet to be realized, but the likelihood of its completion will be considered during judging. The Cyberarts Gallery will comfortably house moderately-sized artworks and installations, but space is somewhat limited. Please limit your proposed work a maximum size of 8*8*8 feet (2.4*2.4*2.4 meters) as really large projections, etc. will negatively impact the number of works to be shown.

As ever, works will be judged according to the following criteria (in decreasing order of importance):
•    art / technology — be techno in production or product[/*]
•    safe — do not be dangerous to patrons[/*]
•    completed / available — be available including artist[/*]
•    fits space — be a team player[/*]
•    exciting / novel — be fun and unique[/*]
•    thought provoking — be smart[/*]
•    crafty — be quality[/*]

Some examples of recent works accepted into COLLISIONcollective shows can be found at http://collisioncollective.org/artwork. Please take these as a general guide to the genre covered, but not as a limitation of your creative parameters. We want to see your ideas!

Please note: Artists are responsible for delivery, pickup, and installation of all work. If you are not in the Boston area and you need us to install your work, you may mail your ready-to-hang work to us in a secure container but you will need to pay for all shipping and insurance, both to and from the gallery. Transit to and from the exhibition is the responsibility of the artist.

Press Release

Animamus is pleased to announce its inaugural salon to be held on February 27,  2011 at 7:00 PM at:

Party Xpo

929 Broadway

Brooklyn, NY 11206

Animamus’ mission is to create a safe, supportive, and inspiring environment for artists of all mediums to debut and discuss their current work while encouraging audience participation.  Drawing its inspiration from the salon format first popularized in 17th Century France, where aristocrats invited thinkers, artists, and writers to their homes to discuss ideas, Bushwick Artist Salon seeks, in this digital age, to create a physical meeting space that will serve to foster the exchange of ideas, facilitate discourse, and create a sense of community. Salons will be held monthly.  Although each salon will be curated, anyone interested in participating in future salons can propose a presentation/ performance by emailing animamusartsalon@gmail.com.

At this date, the following are slated to present work with more presenters to be added:

Ventiko is a photographic artist whose work involves staged scenes created from found objects.  She will be creating a living installation utilizing empty milk cartons. http://www.ventiko.com

Sylva Dean and Me is a performance artist http://www.brianquinn.net/SYLVADEAN

Kristen Studioso is a video and stop motion artist. She will be screening new work. http://www.kristenstudioso.com

Coral Silverman is a visual artist and sometimes writer.   Her work reflects upon the ways in which new forms of technology are changing our relationship to nature, each other, and ourselves.  She will be presenting prose and paintings. www.coralsilverman.com

Everett Kane is a digital media teacher and artist who has been drawing 6 hours a day, seven days a week for six years.  He posts new drawings on Facebook daily.  He will be documenting the event through live drawing.

Fabio Corredor is a  performance artist/instigator.  He will be facilitating party games.

A canvas will be hung and the audience invited to freely mark and paint it between presentations.  This work will serve to document the creative energy created by the environment and by the various attendees.  No work shall be done on the painting outside of the Salon times.  The canvas will be a recurring fixture at each salon.

For images or additional information, please contact Coral Silverman at animamusartsalon@gmail.com.
