New Video Art Streaming Service To Pay Artists Royalties on Fine Art Videos

ID-100231376

Recently, we featured an online only art gallery as just one of many unique alternative exhibition sites out there. We will be presenting more. Today, we’ve discovered another idea taking shape in a site that combines a subscription service to art patrons and a venue for visibility with art licensing and royalty payments to artists.

Videothèque art stream is on a mission to become a video library for artists and art patrons and to provide a channel for video artists to display their works to the public through a closed system web-based portal. This new curated subscription-based video art streaming service is based in New York City and will offer high quality, curated video art to global customers through the Videothèque secure streaming service.

We’ll be watching to see how this new site takes off. It’s an interesting combination of art magazine, online gallery, and art licensing company.

Call for Artists: MIXED BORDERS and HYBRID IDENTITIES

blognightshow 003_news
Call for Artists: MIXED BORDERS & HYBRID IDENTITIES
Photography / Video Art / Video Mapping / Computer Graphics / Painting / Architecture / Installation / Sculpture / Performing Art
FREE SUBMISSION! Deadline: April 07, 2013
International ArtExpo is selecting all interesting photo works, video/short films, computer graphics works, paintings, architecture projects, installations, sculptures and performances to include in the next 2013 Exhibition:
MIXED BORDERS & HYBRID IDENTITIES – International Art Exhibition of Photography, Video Art, Computer Graphics, Painting, Architecture, Installation, Sculpture and Performing Art held in Riccione (Italy) during the Nightshow, Annual Exhibition of the Night-related Industries and Technologies (www.nightshow-riccione.com).
organizer: International ArtExpo
curator: Luca Curci

press office: It’s LIQUID Group
opening: April 26, 2013 at the Conference Centre of Riccione (Italy)
date: April 26-27-28, 2013
FREE SUBMISSION! The deadline for applications is April 07, 2013
The selection will be based on the main concept of the Hybridization and mixing of Identities and borders and it is divided into two sections: MIXED BORDERS and HYBRID IDENTITIES. Nowadays, urban environments, people, rules and limits are no more distinct realities, but they constantly modify and get mixed together, generating new connections and hybrid results. Ethic, social, sexual and religious borders get confused and we feel free to overcome and change all the limits, creating and showing a new type of identity: a crossbreed of characters inserts into a metropolis in which you can find everything you need and become everything you desire.
The exhibition concept is strictly connected to the Nightshow event, since the night is the perfect moment in which all these changes get revealed. During the night the borders vibrate and identities start to get confused.
The Nightshow is an extraordinary experience which will involve thousands of exhibitors, artists and viewers. During the exhibition there will be music events, conferences, showcases, workshops, art shows and many more. More than 100 artists from all over the world will perform music, 3D video mapping projects around the city and partners such as Redbull, Samsung, Yamaha. The event will be at the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th floor of the Palazzo dei Congressi of Riccione, where the fourth and fifth floors will be dedicated to video art, music, installations and art exhibitions.
International ArtExpo will present artists from all over the world in two main venues: Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Riccione in which we will show video art projects divided into two floors (more than 400 square metres of exhibition space), and the Palazzo dei Congressi (Riccione) in which we will exhibit photographic works, performances, installations and sculptures, paintings, architecture projects and computer graphic works. Additionally three places for the 3D video mapping in the city; strategic video projection points in all the Palazzo dei Congressi, with high visibility; dedicated rooms for solo and collective projects and exhibitions.
To take part in the selection, send your works submissions with a CV/biography, videography and some still images (only for video artists and performers), some samples of works (only for artists) or projects (only for architects) via email to lucacurci@lucacurci.com or via mail to:
International ArtExpo
Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, 33
70122 Bari, Italy
The number of works you can submit is free and unlimited. The participation in the International Art Festival requires an entry fee only for selected artworks. Participation open to: artists, architects and designers, associate groups and studios.

Gallery Exhibitions: Open Calls, a New Trend?

Image via freedigitalphotos.net

This August and September, I’ve received several Open Calls for artists to submit to art gallery exhibitions–some with submissions fees and some with no fee required.

The presumption may be that the best galleries do not ask for a submission fee, since they are only interested in bringing in the newest and best artists to show in their space. The galleries that charge a fee may be using the Open Call to bring in funds to pay their bills. In my opinion, it is best to review these opportunities case by case.

Some exciting new spaces may need the monies generated from Open Call artist submission fees, and the small fee an artist pays may be well worth the investment. Be selective! Only submit to the best and most appropriate opportunities for your art. Artist Marketing Resources has been researching commercial galleries over the past few year, and provides extensive information for artists in our PDF art gallery list.

In the UK, the Schwartz Gallery has posted its first Open Call for artist submissions, for their ‘Kiss the Future’  exhibition, a show that will bring together emerging artists across all disciplines including sculpture, painting, installation and video art, photography and design. The show will be on the theme of future worlds: futuristic cities, fantasy bodies, dream travel and other-worldly states-of-mind.

How Do You Get An Article On Your Art Published?

Five of my articles on artists were published by Yahoo! in one week. I know from talking with other Yahoo! contributors, that original subject matter for an article is a must.

My first article is on a Cleveland sound artist, and titled:  Cleveland: Chris Kulcsar- an Artist Who Uses Sound (If problems with the long link, try this short link: http://bit.ly/fcdSMG)

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/7899522/cleveland_chris_kulcsar_an_artist_who.html

My second article, on a Pittsburgh sound artist, I titled– Pittsburgh: R. Weis – Compositions of Manipulated Sound (short link: http://bit.ly/gkZHfg)

My third Article published by Yahoo! is titled: New York: GeneFree Video Performance Art
http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/7900767/new_york_genefree_video_performance.html

My fourth article published: Germany: Light Art Photography
http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/7900825/germany_light_art_photography.html

My fifth article published by Yahoo!
Jeanne Bessette–Painting the Human Element

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/7910629/jeanne_bessettepainting_the_human_element.html

I originally wrote the first four articles for the VASA project blog (http://vasa-project.com).

When I began writing for the VASA project blog as a regular contributor, I established a goal to write on artists in *under-served* regions such as Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

Since I am a member of a large group of primarily Pittsburgh artists, I put the word out that I would be writing on Pittsburgh artists working in video, photography, sound art, and digital art. The name R. Weis came up rather quickly. His fast response to my email and his enthusiasm for the article made it a pleasure to work with him, which inspired me to complete the article that same day.

Contacting Cleveland sound artist Chris Kulcsar proved to be a bit more challenging. At the time he did not have a website, and little online presence. I actually had searched for another sound artist I had heard about in a news cast, when Kulcar’s name came up on his friend’s blog. The blogger put me in touch with Kulcar, who wanted to answer my questions for the article, but was building a new website and would have his bio/CV and artist statement on his site within a few weeks. I know that writing statements, updating CVs and bio information can be time-consuming, as is building a new website, so I agreed to wait.
Several weeks later, Chris supplied me with the link to his new site, and answered all my questions. (In the mean time, the major holidays had come and gone and my mother had died, so, in this case, the delay in hearing back from the artist was not a problem). However, I don’t recommend making someone wait six to eight weeks if they express an interest in writing an article on your art. Have your materials ready and send them right away.

For the GeneFree article, both artists graciously provided me with information and videos to view. Unfortunately, my mother died while I was working on the article, and so I had to attend to family matters. I ended up cutting my article on GeneFree short, and would have preferred to have written a lengthier article.

Working with all of the artists proved to be inspiring, and the articles flowed as I wrote them. I posted my articles to the VASA project blog with images and embedded videos. Yahoo! does not allow images unless the author of an article holds the copyright to the images, or has a license to use the images.

I am pleased that Yahoo! has accepted and published my articles.

So, how do you get an article on your own art published? Perhaps the best way to get started is to connect with a regular contributor of an appropriate art site. Leave a comment on one of their article, then follow-up with an email. If you can’t find an email address for a contributor you would like to work with, leave your email address and site link in your comment. Some art news sites have a form for you to complete to request a feature on your art.

I am especially interested in writing on photographic artists, video artists, sound artists, and digital artists in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and greater areas. But, I have also written on New York artists, German artists, and North Carolina artists. Any artist working on an interesting project should be able to get an article on their work published no matter their geographic region.

Cleveland: Chris Kulcsar-an artist who uses sound

I just wrote and published an article on the work of Cleveland, Ohio sound artist Chris Kulcsar, that includes three embedded videos of his unusual sound and performance art. The article  was also published on the VASA-project blog.

Cleveland: Chris Kulcsar – an artist who uses sound

“In my work I mash up seemingly separate multimedia elements with the intent of creating a body of work that implies a post-historical fabrication of coherence. This poses a problem as I am offered a dizzying array of outside sources to pull from.”
from Chris Kulcsar’s website http://www.chriskulcsar.com

Most of Chris Kulcsar’s life he’s made art and played music, but in just the last few years has made the leap to combining these two activities. While attending graduate school, with “the prodding of instructors and colleagues” Chris was made to realize that skills gained from his band life– recording, organizing events, performing– could be applied to his artistic practice.

Older technology, such as cassette tapes and players, as a medium interest him– “digital doesn’t distort well, but with analog the imperfections, hisses, pops, & distortions are all built into the process”.
Chris Kulcsar is also interested in technology as a cultural marker, he commented– “During the course of my installation at Spaces (Cleveland) I watched as patrons in their early 20’s struggled with the cassettes and the players. This was something I hadn’t anticipated and I’m still processing its deeper ramifications”.

“To interact with the tapes open all 3 in different windows and play and pause to make your own mix”.
Instructions found on Chris Kulcsar’s website.

Try it here, by clicking *play* on all three videos above.

“The panda project dealt with issues of identity and how people put on roles and attitudes. The basic idea is that panda’s don’t exist and they are actually people wearing panda suits. In ancient times the modern equivalent of stoners got together and created the panda idea/costume as a way to get  away with being lazy .  The have existed, almost as a cult, ever since.  The project entailed drawings, videos, and performances. I abandoned the project in the summer of 2008 because I felt that pandas had become overly saturated in pop culture via the Beijing olympics and some kids cartoon. In the video in question that particular panda has found evangelical christianity and he’s giving it a test drive.”
