Linking practice thread

If you’d like to practice creating hyperlinks using ‘textile’ – the markdown format on our website, feel free to do so in this thread!

the text you want to display needs to be surrounded in double quotation marks like this “hello world”

You then follow that immediately (no space) with a colon

“hello world”:

You then follow that immediately with the URL you want to link to, starting with http://

hello world

How to format text using Textile & practice thread

Ok we’ve found an issue with the links, if you use curly double quotation marks the links won’t work. It has to be the straight double quotation marks. The specific keys you need to use will vary depending on your keyboard and operating system.

How to add Artist Opportunities on Artabase

If you’d like to create an “Opportunity” listing on Artabase, it’s best to list this as an Event.

When you are logged in, and you access the “My Events” page from the left hand menu ‘Listings > Events’ link,

You can then click on the “Create Event” button in the upper right of the page.

On the form for creating a new Event, change the drop down menu to select “Opportunity” as the Event type.

This will ensure that your opportunity can be seen along with our other opportunities, when users select the “events” link at the top of the page, and then choose “opportunities” from the search menu.

Art Verona Italy

ART VERONA, October 10. 2013 – October 14. 2013

Marcus Jansen at ART VERONA

Represented by
Maria Bianca Rizzi & Matthias Ritter Gallery, Milan, Italy.

Marcus Jansen, has become a household name not just in Florida State or in the United States, perhaps easily marked by his cover appearance on the Alumni National publication “New American Paintings No. 94” in 2011 with his work “Creeping Obstacles in Kansas.” A 135×88″ sweeping size canvas that sold the same year to his biggest private collector in Naples who owns the largest Jansen collection of any private collector in the world.

According to long time art dealer Glenn Lorchi. “It has been my opinion that”New American Paintings" has been especially stingy when selecting Florida artists in the past. The publication is a juried collection of regional artist work. They split the country into four regions and publish four different select collections. Marcus is the first artist from Florida on the cover that I can remember." said Lorchi. Jansen’s work then was selected by no other than Dan Cameron, (Founder of the largest American Biennial, the US Biennial inc. and currently the Chief Curator at the Orange County Museum of Art in California).

This year Jansen was already recently the winner of the "Aesthetica Art Prize 2013, United Kingdom, the “Dave Bown Projects” Award 2012 in the United States and the “Art Laguna Art Prize” 2013 in March that took place in Venice Italy with Jansen being the only American painter selected among an International panel of jurors that included: Lina Lazaar, (Great Britain, Expert in International Contemporary Art for Sotheby’s), Sabine Schasch, (Switzerland, Director and Curator of Kunsthaus Basel), Adam Budak,(United States, Curator of Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden of Washington) and many other high profile jurors from across the globe. The International selection that consisted of Painters, Photographers, Sculptors and Installation artists were presented at the Arsenale-Venice, Tese di san Cristoforo, Venice Italy early 2013.

Art Verona was conceived of, and initiated by, Danilo Vignati, the president of Fullsteam s.r.l., a company specialised in art events, and Massimo Simonetti who for twenty-five years had been a well-known gallery owner. The first edition took place between 13 and 16 October 2005 and immediately aroused great interest. It was a totally unexpected event and at once caught the attention of the art world because of its insistence on high quality and of its decision to invite only Italian galleries with the highest profile. Year after year, innovation after innovation, it has grown both in quality and in its success among critics and the public. And now, in part because of its particular approach, it is considered one of the few important Italian events that absolutely cannot be missed.
Jansen’s Museum collections include The PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art, The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA), The Housatonic Museum of Art, CT, The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the Smithsonian Institution. He is also one of the ABSOLUT VODKA artist’s along side names like Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. Jansen’s work has appeared in News media such as the The Boston Globe, the New York Times, Art News, Art in America and Vanity Fair Italy. His work will be at the International Auction house Phillips de Pury Moscow and Geneva in 2014.

Jansen will be showing at ART VERONA with a formal introduction to an Italian audience in preparation for his planned solo Museum show in Italy in 2014. He will be represented by Galleria Maria Bianca Rizzi & Matthias Ritter. Pad 11 – Stand G18

Comment made 5 years ago on Saturday 03 September 2011

Artwork made out of $20,000

Interesting piece in The Age about Denis Beaubois’s conceptual artwork about the valuation of art:

THE Australian dollar was last night fetching 87.5¢ … against the Australian dollar.

The artwork Currency, 2011 sold for $17,500 (plus buyers commission and GST of $3850) when it went under the hammer at Deutscher and Hackett in South Yarra last night.

That was a slightly disappointing result for a work with an estimated range of $15,000 to $25,000, and a genuine bargain for a work with a face value of $20,000.

The work, by artist Denis Beaubois, consists of 200 new $100 notes, stacked and bound in two piles, and accompanied by a list of the notes’ serial numbers.

According to the catalogue, the work ‘’raises fascinating questions’’ about the way contemporary art is valued.

The materials used by Beaubois have intrinsic value, but only if the work itself is broken up and destroyed. Intact, its value was unknown until 7.04pm last night when, under the watchful gaze of two security officers, it was auctioned to a packed house.

Beaubois funded the work with a $20,000 grant from the Australia Council. He told The Age last month he stood to make no profit from the project. ’’I’m not getting paid a cent,‘’ he said. ’’If it’s sold, the money I make will be used to finance part two of the project, which is a series of performance/video works on the division of labour, and capitalism.’’

In the end, after paying his vendor commission of 10 to 15 per cent plus GST, Beaubois is likely to have made a paper loss of about $5000. Though technically that would be a polymer loss.

He has described the subject matter of Currency as ‘’the tension between the economic value of the material against the cultural value of the art object’‘. That tension would be ’’explored through the process of the financial transaction’’ – by selling the work at auction.

HUNTER GATHERER

awesome. New style that totally marries the pointellism of traditional Australian Indingenous art with the lines of Impressionism, within the dark, expressionist outlines of contemporary graphic-novel and stencil-street artworks. And through all that, a beautiful, new, and relevant capturing of the light, heat, and outback experience of life in 21th century (time-wise) but still 20th century (culturall) Australian experience.

Creating a Website For Art HOW?

Wah! Don’t get tremory, we’ve had enough of that in Japan.

Ok, if you’re looking to make a website, I recommend starting simple with something like BlogSpot where you can get a site up for free, and just begin by getting familiar with the administration pages when you’ve logged in.

Once you’re confident with using a CMS (Content Management System) then you might want to look at a managed website hosting package like MR Site, where you just pay a low monthly fee, and you can buy a domain if you want as well, and sit it on top of their website software.

The choice between .com or .org really depends on your motivation. Personally, I think they’re all moot which is why I always advocate .net

You must admit, your first paragraphs didn’t make much sense.

Street Art

I love this!

Canadian artist Sean Martindale created this interesting outdoor installation located in Grange Park, Toronto. In 24hrs, Sean used 21,633 feet of salvaged nylon string to write the word “FREE” between two parallel chain link fences. Sean explains “The word FREE refers to the public aspect of my projects, where I create work experienced primarily by accidental audiences.I outlined the word FREE by tying strings within and through the properties of the barrier / constraining structure of the chainlink fence.” This installation is a beautiful inspirational surprise in an unexpected place.

Confidence in art market dives 81% since last May

Confidence in art market dives
January 24, 2009

CONFIDENCE levels in the contemporary art market have fallen 81 per cent since last May and may take between three and five years to recover, according to a survey by the research company ArtTactic.

ArtTactic’s Western Art Market Confidence Indicator dropped to 10.5 from 56, the lowest level reached since the survey was first conducted in May 2005, the London-based company said.

“Confidence has hit rock-bottom, but prices will fall further,” said Anders Petterson, the founder of ArtTactic.

“There’s negativity in the market that’s saying we need to get to the bottom and start again from scratch.”

The latest biennial survey of 145 US and European collectors, auction-house specialists, dealers and art advisers was taken from November 20 to December 10. It followed contemporary-art auctions in New York by Sotheby’s and Christie’s International, which raised $US125.1 million ($192.1 million) and $US113.6 million respectively with fees, below their presale lower estimates.

Almost a third of lots failed to sell at both houses. The equivalent sales in 2007 made $US315.9 million and $US325 million.

When asked how far auction prices would fall from their highs of last May, 47 per cent of respondents said they expected a drop of 30 to 50 per cent. More than half thought it would take more than three years for the market to recover. Of those, more than 50 per cent said the market may take more than five years to pick up.

Precincts

Last night in Richmond, (Victoria, Australia), three of the Albert st Galleries all had their openings on at the same time, which is a brilliant idea, I wish more galleries did it. Albert st is a new precinct I think!

Anyway I’ve got to say that Mark Kimber’s work in Edgeland was incredible, especially the prints in the front room which created fantasy landscapes by sampling together what appeared to be old magazine images. The print-dots were of different scales and blended in together to create a surreal texture. I don’t know if this was real or staged, but it looked incredible in close detail.

My other personal favourite was Craig Cole’s “I don’t want to grow up” at Shifted Gallery. Giant, over-sized cassette tape, Walkman and ear-bud headphones. I’m a sucker for pop art, this was overt pop indulgence. Failsafe!

Check out the pic here, the cassette is about 1.5 metres wide in real life.

Image software

Is anyone renting Adobe software? They’ve got a new purchase arrangement now where instead of paying thousands upfront you pay around a hundred a month for the Creative Suite.

The recommended retail price of each means that the upfront cost for the whole package is about the same as renting the software for 24 months.

Perhaps that’s a good deal if you are likely to upgrade your Adobe software every 24 months, but the software is so good now that many organisations won’t really need to.

I’m just interested to see who thinks that renting the software is a good option. I think I’d prefer to pay the full cost upfront and have access to the suite forever.

For stats freaks

As Artabase reaches its first birthday (June 08), here’s some stats I’ve been researching…

In our first year 30,000 people in the world viewed the website.

According to Quantcast , you’re a well educated, mature bunch, with higher than average viewers having graduate or post-graduate qualifications.

For 2008 we calculate around 100,000 Galleries and Museums in the world, and 0.2% of these are already have a Gallery profile on Artabase. That’s pretty good for our first year, with little marketing.

Domain tools report 18 Wikipedia pages linking in (thanks! We haven’t been responsible for all of those, I’m glad you find Artabase useful enough to reference).

Based on the current ratio of Artists to Galleries on Artabase we calculate roughly 250,000 Artists in the world, although we’d like to find a more solid reference for that if anyone can recommend one.

Artist Resale Rights, your thoughts

Techdirt has a great article pointing out how Artist resale rights can depress the art sale market

What are your thoughts?

http://techdirt.com/articles/20080714/1723141676.shtml

A few years ago, we wrote about the rather silly plan in the UK to create an “artist resale right.” This says that even if an artist has sold his or her work, if that work is resold, the artist still gets a 4% cut. The non-economic thinking on this is that an artist is forced to sell his or her work when it’s not valued as high, and thus deserves a cut when the value is much higher. However, that’s not at all what is happening. Instead, evidence has shown that this is more often used to depress the local art market by making it more expensive to sell art (and decreasing the incentives of anyone to resell any art they’ve bought). It profits big name artists, but tends to hurt the lesser known artists (you know, the one’s it’s supposed to help).

So, of course, it should come as no surprise that the wealthy artists who benefit the most from this resale right in the UK are looking to expand it (found via Against Monopoly). Currently, it only applies to living artists. However, they’re now pushing to extend the right to 70 years after death, where the family of the artist will be compensated — claiming that families deserve to be compensated for artwork a family member may have sold off a century earlier because: “Our loved ones often sacrifice a lot to support an artist in the family.” Of course, there are lots of sacrifices that families make for people in other professions as well, but they don’t get paid a century later for their efforts. This clearly has nothing to do with encouraging more art, since it seems to discourage that. It is, like so many “intellectual property” grants, a way for established creators to get more money out of what they already created, while hurting the market for new upstarts.

Photographer images satellites that do not exist

Trevor Paglen is an astrophotographer with a difference… he takes photos of satellites that are not there. Officially “not there”, anyway. He spends many nights surveying the skies, waiting for classified spy satellites to pass overhead. When one appears, after researching what is actually out there (which is a hard task, these things are not meant to be discovered!) he captures it with his hi-tech astronomical spy satellite-catching equipment. His work makes for captivating (if unnerving) reading. Apart from capturing 189 “ghost” satellites in orbit, he’s turned his stargazing lenses to Earth and taken a peek into the top secret world of “black ops”…

art heists

Art heists are probably as old as art itself. The modern era dates to the 1911 theft of the “Mona Lisa,” when the self-styled Marques Eduardo de Valfierno paid three men to steal it from the Louvre in Paris. It’s usually seen as the first great art heist of the 20th century. Since that time, countless works of major and minor art have been stolen.

So Bill Henson... and censorship in Australia in general

As we’re probably all aware, Bill Henson’s photographs of young teens were seized by Australian police last week. The ensuing media debates wage child porn against artistic merit, with I’ve got to admit more points going to artistic merit with

Adult who posed for Henson at 12 without regret

Former head of Albury Regional Art Gallery wanting Henson’s removed works brought back

In a world that lauds the teen model Henson’s critics are hyprocrits

…combined with other significant data relating to the naturalness of girls 12-14 being sexual creatures given the state of their physical development (including, but which I have not seen covered in the media, the fact that girls are maturing earlier, with the average age of a girl’s first period (menarche) dropping over the past two generations).

What I think all the coverage I have witnessed fails to take in to account is how this impacts our already abysmally censored Australian culture.

It could be argued that Australia has the second-highest rate of censorship in the world, second only to China.

To begin with, the following three situations have been extracted from the Wikipedia entry on "Censorship in Australia
:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship_in_Australia

In 2004, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image was responsible for the censorship of Australian female artist’s work which they had actually commissioned. Videoed images of the artist nailing her body to a tree were reduced in quantity and scale for final presentation to the public, against the artist’s consent.

In 2004, Experimenta refused to include the artwork ‘The Empty Show’ in the publicly installed version of the House of Tomorrow exhibition (it remains on the net.art website 18) due to images of illegally stencilled graffiti which depicted Mickey Mouse with drugs. The issue of Mickey Mouse being defamed was considered the risk, not the drugs. This censorship was known only to the organisers and the artists involved, and thus comprised a form of self-censorship.

Other Australian artists have received funding from public funding bodies, only to discover that their works are too controversial to be shown in this country, notably George Gittoes, whose work is still shown freely overseas.

Feel free to add more information regarding your experiences of censorship in Australia.

- – -

I await with great anticipation the outcome of the Henson case. Should his work be found ‘acceptable’ we will hopefully see a maturation of the Australian cultural scene to something which is not ‘conditioned by alarmist media’ (to quote Henson’s response to the seize). If he is charged with obscenity, production of child porn or publication of child porn then we can kiss artistic license goodbye in this country, and possibly many of our best artists and artworks with it.

I’d also like to see a donation fund set up to help with Henson’s legal fees, as this case is going to affect all artists working in Australia. The case against Steve Hise in America being a good example of why this might be necessary.

self-help mantras, and minor acts of everyday subversion.

This coming Saturday only, we open our temporary mailroom and launch our
interactive publishing model – and we’d love you to contribute.

Submit your instructions; we’ll then transmit selected instructions (by
fax or post, via the web or Federation Square’s SMS-TV) to unsuspecting
strangers.

The mailroom is also where you’ll find selected instructions from
contemporary artists. Be directed by – or add to – Analogue Art Map’s
unknown trajectory. Join Krush Klub, or make an appointment with The
Vorticist.

Intended as an unsolicited act of generosity, the nature of the
instructions can assume varied forms. Instructions may provide a remedy
to the doldrums of a working life, an awakening to behaviours that are
habitual or unconscious; or they could function as a call to action, for
the purpose of a particular cause or belief. Alternatively, instructions
could operate in a more covert way, to form the beginnings of a game of
deception and intrigue.

To find out more – or to contribute online – visit strangerofthemonth.com

Contributing artists include: Panther (Sarah Rodigari and Madeleine
Hodge), Rebecca Cannon, Analogue Art Map, Jason Maling, Lucas Ilhein,
and Nathalie Quagliotto.

Website Feedback and Suggestions

Hey Tim

Yeah, we were thinking the next button would be good

Love number 2, perhaps look only at artists with an image as well

Re: yours not being there, we sussed that out yeah? You were looking at artists in Australia, Victoria, but your artist bio didn’t have Victoria on it. So, that’s fixed now.

MM, text color fixed for upcoming release.

anon, great suggestion. I think inter-media is kind of a given for anyone with more than one media type selected, would you agree? Interactive should definitely be in the list.

Good front pages

as far as letting people know what’s going on…

LinkedIn: Relationships Matter

altho the front page of linkedin doesn’t really describe how valuable it is as a business networking thing. i would use it to find people for jobs if i like the people recommending their services.

Flickr makes it’s point

I like current tv but the front page is a bit crammed… i feel like i don’t want to bother watching anything because I’m never going to have the time to see anything, so i’m going to miss out on too much.

awesome site tho.

I Wish I Could Show You

Big brother, dear-god.net, confessing up to priestly strangers. Little sister?

Does anyone have a mobile with in-phone editing? (eg, shoot two clips, they are automatically pasted together). I think I heard of some mobile java app a few years ago but I don’t know if it was real or just a concept.

I think the videos would work a bit better if it was either confessions or precious moments; not both. When I’m in the mood for perving on confessions, fluffy baby chickens don’t work.

DIGITAL ARTISTS HANDBOOK

The Digital Artists Handbook is an up to date, reliable and accessible
source of information that introduces different tools, resources and ways
of working related to digital art. The goal of the handbook is to be a
signpost, a source of practical information and content that bridges the
gap between new users and the platforms and resources that are available,
but not always easily accessible. The handbook will be slowly filled with
articles written by invited artists and specialists, talking about their
tools and ways of working. Some articles are introductions to tools,
others are descriptions of methodologies, concepts and technologies. The
site hosts articles on a wide variety of topics related to the bits and
bytes of digital art practice, including project management tips, open
content guides, instructions for digital video, digital graphics, and
sound tools, hardware development strategies.
The project is supported by Arts Council England.

Space Art - Ars Astronautica

Whilst thinking about the possibility of making artwork that exists in space, but can be seen from earth, I came across this excellent website about space art;

http://www.arsastronautica.com

The site looks like it hasn’t been updated for a few years, but contains a hugely detailed history of art works that use space. I think my favourite piece was

1984: Joseph McShane’s Get Away Special (GAS) (G-308) which contained a system of spheres used as a materials coating experiment, originally conceived of and viewed as artworks upon return to Earth. McShane stated: “The sculpture “S.P.A.C.E.” is not the glass, but the outer space contained within. The sphere serves only to keep the one-g atmosphere from intruding on the space within, creating an anomaly of our common experience; a sculpture to observe and stimulate wonder about the nature and meaning of space, a sculpture to touch and know that only an 1/8″ of glass separates one from space.” (NASA, 1994)”.

- bringing a piece of space (as in truly empty space, not the stuff found in it) back to earth, what an awesome concept!

An orbital sculpture that didn’t happen;

Re: Orbital Sculptures

I guess these would come under the influence of sky art in general, which would also include sky-writing, fireworks, kite design, cloud-light-shows, large scale balloon and bird releases. And it would also follow the more recent lineage of earth-art works that are intended for enjoyment by those positioned in the sky, like environmental sculptures (crop circles included), massive landscaping branding projects, and the plethora of both natural and artificial large-scale projects intended for view from Google earth, etc.

Australian Network for Art and Technology

I just received the latest copy of ANAT’s Members only Filter magazine. Gotta say I love the new full colour glossy format, and am looking forward to checking out the complimentary DVD of experimental AV including works by jean poole, Wade Marynowsky, Ajbect Leader, Robin Fox and Delire/Pix amongst others.

Kudos to Director Dr. Melinda Rackham and the rest of the ANAT team for pulling together such a polished mag, I hope they can keep up the multimedia format. For anyone pondering whether ANAT membership is worthwhile I’d say now is a great time to do it given you get a few back copies of the Filter mag upon subscription, (not to mention their quick turnaround professional development grant).

which found that “Digital resources produced by publicly funded organisations are a valuable asset to the research and education community. Many people in the sector believe that access to and use of these digital resources could be better and that the wider use of open content licences would help to improve the situation.”
