B. Lacey, The Womaniser, 1966

Coming soon  To celebrate our 10th edition we have prepared a special issue in which we had the chance to interview 9 artists from the international scene whose works unveil the ubiquitous combination between conceptual and socio politicised practice, giving birth to a stimulating mix of pure art and deep social engagement.

Their refined multidisciplinary approaches give life to an incessant process of recontextualization, that provides the viewers of an extension ofthe basic human perception, in order to manipulate it, releasing it from its mostprimordial, limbic parameters.
Overtly playing with the unheimlich nature of gestural movements and sound, as well as traditional brushstrokes and photography, their pieces reveal the tendency to exist in continuum, residing somewhere in our collective memory.
We are particularly pleased to introduce our readers to their multifaceted artistic productions.

Focus  A Scanner, Darkly: On Andrea Crespo's "Polymorphoses", by Anton Haugen
Constantly reflecting on this imagery, Andrea Crespo's recent solo show "polymorphoses" at Hester in New York evokes an environment of clinical intimacy in its aesthetic and conceptual coherence. Similar to an LED screen or scanner, the digital prints on the four poly voile curtains covering the windows are backlit by the sun. Positioned in front of these curtains, an EMDR light bar (used by cognitive therapists to treat post-traumatic stress disorder) replicates a scanner's mobile light in the sculpture polymist: echolalic transponder; its accompanying soundtrack abstracts the diegetic sound of this light's kinetics as low digital tones. read the complete article

Focus  The Flash Artists who Cybersquatted the Whitney Biennial, by Lucas G. Pinhero (Rhizome)

One story of whitneybiennial.com opens at the ElectronicOrphanage (EO) in Chinatown, Los Angeles. Founded in 2001 by artists Miltos Manetas and Mai Ueda, the now-defunct EO was once a small artist-run project space on Chung King Road, a pedestrian pathway dense with independent galleries and studios. Until its demise in 2004, the "Orphanage" remained a stark black cube, completely barren if not for a white screen where digital art was occasionally projected, typically when neighboring galleries hosted opening receptions over drinks. For the most part, the space was a kind of laboratory for a group of artists, curators, and critics with a shared interest in the computer and digital culture—the "Orphans." It was here, sometime in February 2002, that a plot to cybersquat the Whitney Biennial began to take shape. Or at least this is how Manetas, the project’s architect, remembers it.

FOCUS  Why (and how) our museum started collecting Vines

The 2015-16 English premiere league season kicks off on Saturday, and the National Football Museum will be collecting fan-made archives throughout the season using Webrecorder Beta.

Vines shown in this article are embedded directly from the Webrecorder Beta platform, and are not yet viewable on all browsers. Links to the original Vines are included in the captions, and the archived Vines can be seen in context in NFM's Webrecorder collection.

March 12, 2016  Global Audiences, Zero Visitors: How to measure the success of museums’ online publishing
(posted on Rhizome by Orit Gat)

An interesting article that can be read on Rhizome: "As museums are rethinking their relationship to their audience online, an increasing number chooses to publish online magazines, and many of these publications emerge from institutions that are not necessarily the major museums in art world hubs. The attitudes toward these publishing initiatives vary—some choose to outline the scope of their publishing platforms in the shape of their programming, while others produce magazines that are thematically related to subjects the museum.

EVENT  Comrades of Time by Andrea Geyer at the Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari: Refrains of Freedom International Conference

The Non Profit Art Company “Out of the Box Intermedia” presents “Comrades of Time” by Andrea Geyer curated by Dr Sozita Goudouna within the context of the “Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari: Refrains of Freedom International Conference” on Friday 24th of April at 17.30-19.30pm at the French Institute of Athens and on Saturday 7.30-11.00pm at the Museum of History of the University of Athens, (Old University, or Oikia Kleanthous) Comrades of Time attempts to find new ways to capture time in the image by engaging with the question of time and with the provocation of Gilles Deleuze’s term the “Time-Image.” The artist is researching on the new significance of time and on the temporalization of the image as a political, historical and cultural construct by working with seven women who recite monologues composed from speeches, letters and essays from 1916-1941, written by architects, writers, philosophers and political organizers >>>read the complete article>>>
