Art Micro-Patronage

Art Micro-Patronage is an experimental online exhibition space featuring monthly curated shows of digital, new media, and intermedia work. As visitors navigate through the exhibitions, they are encouraged to become micro-patrons of the arts, associating their appreciation of the works with small monetary values. Patrons receive a link and image as recognition for their generosity and can easily keep track of works they've donated to via the AMP platform.Our goal is to create a compelling platform for showcasing and supporting artists whose work is ideally experienced online. Ongoing Sponsors

Our Focus is Donorship, Not Ownership
Art Micro Patronage, as a platform, is part of an ongoing conversation about workable ways to present online artwork and support its makers. As an increasing number of artists choose to work with media that exists almost exclusively online, it’s important that we experiment just as voraciously to create systems to showcase as well as nurture their work. Your contributions allow us to continue innovating in the way we experience artwork.While artists and makers are gaining ever more opportunities for exposure, the opportunities to get paid for their work are dwindling. As online appreciators, we are encouraged to show our thanks by sharing or reposting, with the promise that notoriety brings financial security. We're not fully convinced of this logic.There needs to be a light at the end of this tunnel, because being "liked" doesn't yet pay the bills. That is why we built an alternate way to show appreciation, a way that enables creators to continue making wonderful things. With AMP, we want to make it as easy as possible to support great work.

Art Object Culture

AOC curates two artists a month to create new art objects from items preexisting in various online stores. Works are available for purchase at the price listed in the caption below each artist’s piece, plus art object tax. Purchase price is determined by the total of all objects depicted and includes ownership of the archived work online. The purchaser’s name will be included in the directory url and all items will be sent to the purchaser’s residence.

CERMÂ


Our director Manuel Roßner in the exhibition space of »what we call painting«.

Our Concept
The digitalization and interconnectedness of our lives may well be considered the greatest societal upheaval these days. No other movement or development has changed the way we interact with our surroundings the way the internet and computer systems have. We all know the little shop down the road has been replaced by e-commerce; correspondents have to coexist with bloggers and tweeters.

Many among us use the web to make and keep friends. Many also spent their free time in virtual environments. Computers have accelerated and facilitated all areas of life. Writing Emails is much more convenient than writing letters.

There is evidence that proves this development to not only be additional to the already existing but that it has created fundamentally new ways of thinking and designing. It has altered and expanded the way we perceive things. The Centre d’Art Mâtiné (CERMÂ) canvasses the dichotomies of digital/analogue and real/virtual in the world of art in regard of a »digital society«.

»Art Mâtiné« describes art that has something to do with the new opportunities computers offer. The French word »Mâtiné« means »hybrid«, something that is made of two different kinds of things. It derives from hybrid computers that were built up to the 1970s and used both digital as well as analogue technology.

CERMÂ translates this concept into an artistic context offering a platform for both virtual and real art, and analyzes the relationships and differences between these two poles. It uses architecture visualizations to give us an impression of what abstract algorithms can create. The line between real and virtual becomes more and more blurred; one cannot tell anymore whether a piece of art was shaped by the hands of a human or computer software.

In CERMÂ’s virtual rooms, people work with tools that were developed like their analogue counterparts. Objects can be moved, turned, scaled or modified in many other ways on computer screens. CERMÂ presumes that exploring these tools can tell us something about changes in our perception and therefore records the “Index of Virtual Crafts in Contemporary Art and Culture”. This index categorizes pieces of contemporary art by tools that were used. The IVCCAC will be published as a part of the blog.

Foundation
Manuel Roßner foundet CERMÂ in the beginning of 2012. He studies experimental concepts of space, timebased media and theory of the media at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach.

Click | Gallery

 

 

Click | Gallery offers internet artists the opportunity to temporarily commandeer its server space to create new work. Because net art is articulated in electromagnetic impulses, this host machine serves as both a substrate and a spawning ground— an environment that creators themselves must cultivate if their work is to thrive. Click | Gallery cedes all administrative authority to the artist. In so doing, Click | Gallery surrenders itself to subsumption, allowing viewers to fully immerse themselves in the essence of the artist’s intent.

Cloaque works like a digital landfill. It is the result of the collection, treatment and joining together of a series of images found online, to create a column of digital compost. Therefore, many of the images that make up the collage are not owned by Cloaque. If any images of you or any images that you own are included in the composition, and you are not happy with this, please contact us regarding their immediate removal.

Cloaque 就像一个数码填埋场。 它是为创造一组数码组合,从而对一系列从网上寻得的图像进行收集、处理和拼接 而成的结果。 因此,许多组成拼贴画的图像并非为 Cloaque 所有。如果任何带有您形象的图像 或任何属于您的图像被包含在图像组合中,而您不愿我们以这种方式使用此图像, 请联系我们将其立刻删除。 Cloaque.org 是对当代精神的真正反映。

Fach & Asendorf Gallery

The Internet, it is everywhere. It is here, it is there and it is where you actually are. It is so huge that nobody ever could print it. It is so deep that no one ever would dive to its end. There is peace and war in it, love and hate and all between. Once you have traveled through it, you will never forget, and you will come back, asap, lol.

The Internet is a digital reflection of our real life world, but with much more freedom, with the option to be who ever you want, and this is really important, with an off-switch. It is a massive playground, a television with infinite channels and the greatest exhibition space.
In short, we love it.
And we, the Fach & Asendorf Gallery claims to be an important and interesting part of it.

The Internet makes it pretty easy and mobile for us to discover artworks from all over the world. Yes, and it seems that it had made it possible that some artworks get a behavioral like an autonomic creature. Sure, it is good if your work goes around the world, without any special effort beside putting a proper documentation on your website. The art and design blogosphere works as a neat filter if you frequently visit your favorite blogs.

But do you really want that? Do you just want to view the presorted stuff? That thought is pretty commercial, too commercial.

The Fach & Asendorf Gallery is the major online exhibition gallery for net.art, media art, digital madness and satisfaction.
We believe in electricity, bits, brains, glitch and curiosity. We are a seeder. — We don't just reblog posts from other sites, we seed the freshest and latest works of a very fine selected group of exceptional artists.

Idle Screenings

 

 

An exhibition of original and selected video artworks, streamed off-demand to your vacant computer

About

Idle Screenings streams video and image art to thousands of desktops daily, through the use of custom screensaver software. Our exhibition explores value within an attention economy by beaming original works into empty rooms at the expense of other resources, such as energy, bandwidth, and time.

Background

We launched Idle Screenings in March of 2012 as a one week exhibition, featuring the five most downloaded movies on the web, available in three formats: Screensaver, GIF blog, and PowerPoint.

During its initial weeklong run, Idle Screenings investigated the shift in the perceptual value of mass-market content once it has become ubiquitously shared online. Today, we're excited to be streaming new and rare content to a broad audience of empty desks, back-filling a channel that has been static for too long.

International New Media Gallery

The International New Media Gallery (INMG) is an online museum. It specialises in moving image artwork, a medium successfully showcased on screens. The INMG is dedicated to evolving the experience of gallery going. Although access to the Internet and computers is not universal,[1] neither are the demographics for physical museums.[2] The INMG spives to expand and increase the audience for contemporary art. The gallery places art outside the physical museum, while providing an educational frame to encourage critical thought and discussion, both on and offline.

Outside the Physical Museum

The INMG seeks to bring art to its potential audience, curating exhibitions in spaces outside of the physical museum. The context art is exhibited in shapes its reception and audience. Carol Duncan notes that the ‘lighting and architectural detail’ of certain material spaces service those ‘inpiduals who are perfectly predisposed socially, psychologically, and culturally to enact the museum ritual’, to the potential exclusion of others.[3] The increasingly mobile nature of Internet access brought about with the proliferation of portable hardware platforms enables our exhibitions to be seen in many locations. In some of these spaces, like people's homes, audiences will have different relationships to their surroundings.

An Online and Offline Educational Framework

The INMG does not simply place artwork on the web, devoid of context. Our exhibitions present a framework of educational material and events. These include academic catalogues and essays. The curators conpibute to the INMG’s online forums to encourage a dialogue about the displays. By fostering such a conversation, we aim to create ‘the post-museum [where] the curator’s voice is one voice among many others’.[4] A series of talks and seminars, ‘offline’ events, are held to coincide with exhibitions. This encourages learning, engagement and social interaction. The website itself is the foundation from which the gallery reaches out.

JstChillin

JstChillin, 2009 - 2011

JstChillin is Caitlin Denny and Parker Ito, two California artists interested in collapsing the relationship between a curatorial pursuit and artistic practice. The title for the project encapsulates the 'tude of the times - to chill is to live in a constant state of multiplicities, a flow of existence between web and physicality. JstChillin has the following message for all interested in chillin hard:

If ur lukin 2 meet nu frndz, enemies or if ur lukin 2 ave fun, herz d plce 4 ya. Herz whre d kool prodi fellarz n chicks hangout n gt 2 knw each oda. Herz ur boi tunetty calin out 2 al dem fine senoritaz and fine lukin felarz up in here, 2 cme chill him.

...the Proust quote, "real without being actual, ideal without being abstract" looms beneath their logo, with the newly added, "time doesn't exist when you're....jstchillin!" The digi world is confronted with the ideal world as being purely virtual; iframes, actionscript and css keep our lives manageable. However, JstChillin looks beyond that, the simple gratification of day to day living on the net, beyond the dream of possible experiences, beyond the endless link. We seek to create a condition of actuality, of experience, a difference in time and space - different from the notions imposed by the observer. It is important to keep in mind that the concept is identitcal to the object - this is a new material idealism that is being bred out of the culture of digital natives. And is it a coincidence that this fold of happenings is interconnected with slacker culture? The slacker being an educated person who is viewed as an underachiever - we are the slackers of the art world!

"Michel Houellebecq's 1994 novel Extension du domaine de la lutte was titled as "Whatever", in its English translation, and describes the chronically disaffected life of a computer programmer."

A common abbreviation is Whatevs but an even more common form of the abbreviation is Whatev. It is a way of showing one's indifference in slang form. It is an example of "slang of the slang."

Our indifference is defiantly THE difference between jstchillin... and not.

Serial Chillers In Paradise

A revolving exhibition of two week solo sites with accompanying essays by Caitlin Denny & Parker Ito. Each artist will take over jstchillin.org for two weeks with all new work that pertains to the interests of chillin. The end of the show, Serial Chillers In Paradise, will culminate in a physical exhibition including all participants in a flow of energy on a groundless site.

Kunsthall Stavanger

 

Kunsthall Stavanger is a contemporary art institution that serves as a platform for the production, exhibition, and distribution of artworks that are part of a large international discourse. We collaborate with artists and guest curators to develop solo and group exhibitions with the goal of creating transformative experiences and in depth audience engagement. We hope to welcome a broad and diverse audience and have therefore established an art library and special programming for children in addition to our regularly scheduled exhibitions. Our website functions as our second exhibition space, featuring online projects, documentation and behind the scenes material from our activities.

We recognize and actively contribute to the global network of the contemporary art world. However, our most important audience is in Stavanger, and we aim to become an important local meeting place for the viewing and discussion of contemporary art.

In 2013 Stavanger Art Society became Kunsthall Stavanger. Stavanger Art Society was founded in 1865 by a group of dedicated citizens. There were 62 original members, with consul and amateur artist Jens Zetlitz Kielland serving as the society’s first chairman. In 1925 Stavanger Art Society moved into its own premises. The opening of the new building was conducted by King Haakon VII, and the event was included in the city of Stavanger's 800 year anniversary celebrations.

Stavanger Art Society's goal was to promote the experience and knowledge of visual arts by acquiring paintings for their exhibitions – these works were then given to the members in a lottery at the end of each year. Over time, the Stavanger Art Society built a prominent collection including paintings by Kitty Kielland, Harriet Backer, Carl Sundt Hansen, and Norway's most important series of works by Lars Hertervig, among many others. The collection of over 300 artworks was named Stavanger's Faste Galleri and converted into a foundation in 1965.

The art society's building eventually became too small to house the growing collection, and in 1990 Stavanger Faste Galleri became Rogaland Art Museum. The museum moved into a new building, which provided 900 square feet of temporary exhibition space at Stavanger Art Society.

LaFiac.com

LaFiac.com is a cybersquatting, the goal is to hijack the attention which arouses the International Fair of Contemporary Art to bring to light the french and international online creation. We think that Internet is a part of reality and that forms attached to this new space deserve the biggest interest although the works are not monnayables.

Legion TV

LEGION TV is a contemporary arts network founded in 2012. Dedicated to cross-discipline collaboration, we seek to contribute to the development of critically engaged projects by commissioning artists for our project space and online.

We work across research, participation and collaboration through solo projects, publications, public talks, open calls and public events. We want to make an accessible space for arts production, sharing ideas and critical reflection.

All our work is not-for-profit.

or-bits.com

or-bits.com is a web-based curatorial platform devoted to supporting practices and dialogues around artistic production, display and distribution online. Through commissioning new works for online exhibitions, promoting critical discourses and writing on its blog and developing offsite projects in collaboration with partnering organisations, or-bits.com aims to instigate an exploration of the creative and critical possibilities of the web as language, medium and subject.

On its website, or-bits.com presents quarterly group exhibitions accompanied by a rolling blog. Each exhibition originates from the exploration of a word and culminates in a media crossover, in which the editorial and miscellany of artists' works are what remain visible of the process of production. The aim is to suggest links between various cultural areas; creating a system in which the artworks and their idiosyncratic languages, the blog posts and their critical trajectories, stand for themselves while being connected to a centre point. Offsite, or-bits.com has collaborated with various art organisations in the production and presentation of gallery exhibitions, events and printed projects.

or-bits.com started its activity in September 2009 and is directed by Marialaura Ghidini.

Palais de Tokyo

True to its ambition of supporting the most contemporary artistic practices, in September 2012 the Palais de Tokyo is introducing the launch of its Online Projects. As a repetitive form, an emerging artist whose practice is Internet-based will be invited to present a novel work on the Palais de Tokyo website. The first session will be opened by the Canadian artist Jon Rafman.

Parallelograms

Parallelograms is an online artist project exploring the relationship between images and interpretation. Invited artists are given a set of images taken from deliberate web searches and asked to create a web-specific piece in response to one of them.

By highlighting a wide range of artists, Parallelograms explores a fundamental artistic practice: transforming source material into new forms and ideas. Each project presents a unique way of interpreting an individual image in context of the ubiquitous mass of images found online, and provides insight into the individual artist’s way of working.

Parallelograms is curated and published by Leah Beeferman and Matthew Harvey.

ScreenSaverGallery

 

ScreenSaverGallery is not TV!

Across an artistic practice we can meet art pieces that somehow act or remind (visually or conceptually) screen savers. At the same time we have such art, which is not thought to be showed at the common galleries, it has to be modified into some type of references or records. And of course, there is the apparently dead medium or rather empty space that remained after screensavers, function of which ceased to be performed years ago. The aim of participation from the side of both curators and artists is on one hand to choose pieces that will get a new message by adding the context of the screensaver. On the other hand they shall work directly with the options and specificities of “ScreenSaverGallery” or with artworks generally thematize virtual space and its usage, networking and so on.

“ScreenSaverGallery” should not be perceived just as platform for presentation of contemporary art, but it should also become an experimental environment for its development. Experiments with the situations in which the screensaver appears, with technical possibilities of the “ScreenSaverGallery” as well as with the visual contexts should be constantly made by every user (i.e. YOU), who is also encouraged to challenge the original concept.

Distribution

“ScreenSaverGallery” is going to be distributed in several ways. At the moment it is downloadable on the link screensaver.metazoa.org. Very soon it will be available also in the App store, softpedia and others. “ScreenSaverGallery” should be installed on the public computers at schools, info points, in cities (where the computers are usually for free use), at progressive organizations and big companies. The ideas behind the “ScreenSaverGallery” shall also be presented on festivals or in the academic environment. New channel functionally connecting fine art and the public can be created this way, and a dialog growing from this connection (via on-line blog mostly) is essential for purgative transformation on fine art (which is necessary).

“ScreenSaverGallery” is a gallery space with social/cultural responsibility, trying to help the positive transformations of our cultural and informational.

All around the world are artists working with digital media and Internet – creating and reflecting its specific attributes or anomalies. By means of ScreenSaverGallery, we would like to participate at this process with mediation of their dynamic and important behaving.

Everybody is welcome to contribute or comment on “ScreenSaverGallery” and individual “screen savers” by participating in discussion on BLOG or sending a message (via blog, metazoa.org, or Fcb).

ScreenSaverGallery wants to offer the artists a bright new dimension for their activities. ScreenSaverGallery is the topic to us. We do not make exhibitions, we do screensavers!

SPAMM

SPAMM MANIFESTO

Visual arts have entered a new era. It’s a place where immediacy rules, where visual arts becomes virtual, a place that links the world together. A new era for artists who have invented new concepts, using digital medias, from video to graphism, static, animated or even computer-programmed. They have created a flamboyant design for a super-society created in the Web’s image.

Therefore, if "contemporary art" isn’t "from today" anymore, but just a continuing period of the XIX° century "modern art", we can proclaim - without hesitation - the existence of the Super Modern Art. It has existed for 10 years now across the web and new technologies. Super-modern art is a virtual museum.

By creating the Super Modern Art Museum (SPAMM), Michaël Borras a.k.a Systaime and Thomas Cheneseau, merely made up for the the indifference of cultural authorities and the need for society to understand the MUSEUM in another way. In 2012, the Museum has to tackle new issues as to the place of art, questionning the way to SEE it and to BUY it. The SuPer Art Modern Museum is an experiment to answer all those questions.

This is the reason why SPAMM takes up theses challenges. SPAMM is not only a new form of museum, it would like to encourage new forms of digital creation.

The Art of SPAMM is the art of Museum, the art of SPAMM is the eye of the collector, the art of SPAMM is the scream of an artistic movement, the art of SPAMM is collaborative and generative, it’s an art that gets out of homes and lives in the heart of machines, a new art for a new generation of artists, collectors, gamers, geeks, buzzers, actors and amateurs alike.

In the midst of this stream of creation, Michaël Borras and Thomas Cheneseau select SPAMM artists. Systaime, Thomas Cheneseau and Silicon Maniac's team travel the world of virtual creation, from the Venice Biennale to lafiac.com, and they gather all their experiences together in a single place : SPAMM, a museum and an art manifesto.

Temporary Stedelijk

About Temporary Stedelijk

More than 7 years ago the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam closed its doors. Since then the museum organized several exhibitions outside of the museum. Located on different places in Amsterdam the Stedelijk has been showing the public's favorites from the museum's art collection. In 2010 and 2011 The Stedelijk Museum decided to temporarily open it's doors for the public three times: Temporary Stedelijk 1,2 and 3. In these exhibitions they again mainly showed works from their own collection; beautiful works from internationally respected and well known artists.

But.

We think these temporary re-openings are missed opportunities by the Stedelijk Museum. Hasn't anything new happened during the time the museum has been closed? Why haven't we for example seen new works of young artists from Amsterdam? Why did they organize lectures, performances screenings and events, while the opportunities on the world wide web, the internet, are being neglected?

The Stedelijk forgot the internet, the Stedelijk overlooked the abundance of young and promising artists that the city itself has to offer. As simple as that.

We think it's incomprehensible that big institutions like the Stedelijk don't offer a stage for innovative and young artists whom are there right in front of them. Isn't it the responsibility of these institutions to invest time, effort and attention in it?

This is why we came up with the plan of showing an alternative; to tell the story of what is happening in the here and now. To somehow show the works of young artists from Amsterdam to the audience they deserve. We wanted to create a platform to tell this story, our story and to tell the artist's story on the stage of the museum. When we found out the museum didn't buy their own name on the internet, we did. And we created this website to show what Amsterdam has to offer when it comes down to innovating art.

Art, as all human action, is connected to the context it originates from. It is important to tell these stories. So, what we did: We went out the door, walked into the city, and brought the works and stories of these people back home, to put them together in virtual exhibitions on the stage of the museum. Every month a new virtual exhibition will be organized on this website; easily accessible and free from the nuisance of closed buildings. Always open.

Hopefully, the museum will realize its role, to show the here and now to their audience. And, how wonderful would it be if all the works shown during our virtual exhibitions would in the end be exhibited for real, in the newly renovated huge buildings of the Stedelijk.
