"02890" Bankley Gallery Show

  #
02890

An exhibition of nine emerging graduate artists based in Belfast. ‘02890’ is a mixed bag.

The artist’s works are not bound to one another; rather they point in differing directions, addressing contemporary subjectivity.

They demonstrate how societies structures and codes are embodied in the urban environment and the vulnerability of the individual played out through a complexity of narratives, sounds and images.


10th September to the 30th September 2005

Private View Friday 9th September 7-9 pm
Open Saturday 10th 12 till 4pm

Other times by appointment on:
07773 369 465 (24hrs in advance)

Bankley Studios Gallery
Bankley House, Bankley Street, Levenshulme, Manchester, England

Independent Music Sought

  #
It Takes A Village To Make Records, an independently-run music label, seeks tracks for an upcoming, FREE sampler of independent music and soundscapes. ITAV specializes in unique, handcrafted recordings, a hands-off approach to creative control and copyright ownership, and visually stunning graphic design and packaging. ITAV releases are designed to grab potential purchasers from across a room and draw them to your music.

"First-hand Accounts, Theories, and their Repercussions" will act as a calling card for ITAV, rather than a label roster compilation. In that spirit, ITAV seeks music of all forms, from traditional folk to noise. Additionally, songs which demonstrate a strong independent vein are desired, whether that is shown by experimental qualities or simply by the song's lack of slickness. "First-hand Accounts" will contain live tracks, demos and/or alternate versions and home recordings. Tracks are sought from all types of artists, famous or unknown.

Artists will retain full rights to their music. "First-hand Accounts" will be distributed FREE as an educational tool and an example of ITAV's creative expertise. For that reason, ITAV cannot offer compensation for your track, however full credits will be included in the packaging, including songwriting credits, "appears courtesy of..." messages, and/or internet resources.

ITAV is cultivating a diverse artist base for this project and for their emerging catalog. For more information and to submit your tracks, contact stargrazerllc@gmail.com.

Unleashing The Rock Poster

  #

Here is a recently completed poster design for the Detroit-area indie/rock band Stare Into The Sun. I've always loved the interface between music and graphic design, exemplified by everything from jazz LP covers to the many wonderful rock fliers created by such genius minds as Rick Griffin and Frank Kozik

My goal was to create a poster that reflected the band's aesthetic, while at the same time tempting viewers to steal the poster for their apartment or dorm room walls. Ultimately, getting the band name out there and drawing people to gigs is the purpose of a good poster -- so we communicated extensively to make sure the final design was clearly readable and visually arresting.  This was a quick turnaround project -- Kevin from SITS contacted me on July 4 and the design was mailed July 7!


Check out Stare Into The Sun, The Black Spoons, and Tiny Amps of Corduroy Tuscadero at Hamtramck's Painted Lady (2390 Jacob), this Saturday, July 16 2005.

Dispatx Art Collective :: Scar as Sign

  #




Dispatx Art Collective are pleased to announce the publication of our third edition - Scar as Sign. The works making up this issue explore the theme in a diverse manner, confronting concepts from personal experience and showing their significance in a much broader sense.

Our bodies, relationships and environments are defined by information built up over time, as if there were an implicit will governing what should be preserved. Through dislocations in the storage process, wounds can be generated, and attempts to erase these wounds from our memories give rise to scarring. In their turn, lasting scars are then converted into objects of great significance. To talk of these significations is to talk not only of the object itself but also of all that it signifies. Human memory is thus made up of a tension between defects and the processes undertaken to hide them.

The edition is made up of 13 works in various media including photography, sculpture, sound and poetry. It is the result of 4 months' collaborative development of the theme by 17 different artists, and can be seen at www.dispatx.com

The database can be searched by artist, project or science organisation. It contains information on exhibitions, collaborative projects and areas of science interest and includes a showcase of artworks in the online gallery.

The Synapse database is a resource for artists, scientists, researchers, curators and industry to develop innovative and dynamic collaborations and connections.



Feedback is welcome and we invite submissions from Australian artists, scientists and organisations to be included in the database.

Adobe Aquires Macromedia.

  #

And if you thought there wasn't enough competition between design based software...


Adobe Systems Incorporated (Photoshop, Illustrator, Go Live, etc) today announced a definitive agreement to acquire Macromedia (Flash, Director, Freehand, etc) in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $3.4 billion.

The combination of Adobe and Macromedia will provide customers a more powerful set of solutions for creating, managing and delivering compelling content and experiences across multiple operating systems, devices and media. Together, the two companies will meet a wider set of customer needs and have a significantly greater opportunity to grow into new markets, particularly in the mobile and enterprise segments.

"Customers are calling for integrated software solutions that enable them to create, manage and deliver a wide range of compelling content and applications – from documents and images to audio and video," said Bruce Chizen, chief executive officer of Adobe. "By combining our powerful development, authoring and collaboration software – along with the complementary functionality of PDF and Flash – Adobe has the opportunity to bring this vision to life with an industry-defining technology platform."

[more]

"In one dystopia, we project ourselves into the artstore of the near future. The wind howls through the room, whose shelves are empty but for three small cartons: Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator. For today's digital designers- many of whom have eagerly adopted the narrow horizons dictated by this small handfull of commercial products- the vision is, I claim, already a reality. And the unquestioned hegemony of these tools has launched an unprecedented proliferation of homgenous and disposable electronic designs."

Found!

  #

(SCENE) Metrospace in partnership with Found Magazine announces the opening of its newest exhibition, "FOUND!" which will be unveiled on Wednesday, March 30.  "FOUND!" explores the recovery and reuse of objects that have been lost, misplaced, discarded or left behind.

Local and national artists participating in "FOUND!" use found materials in unique ways to construct their artwork.  Los Angeles native Kelly Lynn Jones uses fabric and collage to create illustrations.  Scott Hocking of Detroit created his art piece using recovered negatives that he found in an abandoned house.  Ann Arbor based Davy Rothbart and Found Magazine have become an international phenomenon over the past year. Rothbart will share numerous amazing finds that strangers have sent in from across the globe. Doug Coombe of Ann Arbor will use photographs of abandoned warehouses and buildings in Detroit, evoking the beauty found in destruction.  The Portland, Ore. based Suite B Artist Collective employed a search, recovery, and create cycle to make art through found images and objects.  The Suite B members participating in "FOUND!" Include East Lansing natives Jen Kruch and Josh Kermiet, as well as Oregon's James Boulton, and Corey Lunn.

International ArtExpo

  #
International ArtExpo
I've been getting emails (spam?) from the following organization... they sound quite interesting though, especially how they formed.

>>
International ArtExpo<<

ArtExpo is an international art event. Its object is to use new technologies to globalize the language of art, to connect the conceptual points of contact of artists working in every part of the world, all united in the thick plot of the world net.

Does this sound familiar?

>>
A group of artists called ArtExpo is formed on the internet. 23 artists decide to change the way they work. They decide to be independent.  ArtExpo is set up as an itinerant encounter. No headquarters, no fixed address, no bonds. <<

It's worthwhile checking their events and call for entries periodically. This might be something OCC would want to be involved in, especially because of the similar foundation of both groups.

Free Legal Services

  #

This came from Christine Stamas at the Detroit Artists Market:

The Detroit Artists Market (DAM) and ArtServe Michigan's Volunteer Lawyers
for Arts and Culture program have joined together in a major project to
provide free monthly legal services to Detroit area artists. The next Artist
Legal Clinic will be held on Saturday, February 5th from 1 - 3 p.m. at the
DAM gallery located at 4719 Woodward Avenue in Detroit.

The Clinic is an opportunity for artists to seek private consultations on
their arts-related legal issues with one of the volunteer attorneys. After
an initial consultation at the Artists Legal Clinic if it is determined that
the artist has a more in-depth legal issue the artist will be pre-qualified
using the Volunteer Lawyers for Arts and Culture (VLAC) income guidelines
and the case placed with a volunteer attorney.

The ArtServe Volunteer Lawyers for Arts and Culture is a referral service
that provides pro-bono legal assistance to income eligible artists and arts
and cultural organizations. Legal assistance available covers a wide range
of areas including contracts, copyrights, patents, trademarks, acquisition
of business space, real estate, constitutional rights and First Amendments
issues, etc.

For more information, please contact Kim Dabbs, Director of Service Programs
at ArtServe via email at kdabbs@artservemichigan.org or by phone at
248-557-8288x14.
