Website Status

Hi Everyone

We’ve recently moved to a new web server as the old one was getting a bit slow.

There will be a few configuration errors on the new server, so please post any that you note here in case we haven’t found them yet.

The first we’ve noticed is a URL redirect error if you try to post a new exhibition, it will be fixed as soon as possible.

Art Wiki

Hi All

We’re launching a new art wiki at http://artwiki.artabase.net

Anyone can apply to contribute, but it’s a bit different to WikiPedia in that we won’t be letting just anyone edit any page.

We’d love to archive any artistic material on there, so if you’ve got old catalogue texts or articles that you want preserved online, please send them through.

We’re looking for people to become special editors, for example if you want to manage a page listing artist run galleries, or pottery artists in the UK, or basically whatever you can think of, then please drop us a line using the support link at the bottom of the page and let us know.

Love to hear your feedback!

Dead Artists

We can now support updating the artist profiles to show that they aren’t currently working, because they are dead.

Here’s an example: http://www.artabase.net/artist/1671-wolfgang-sievers

However we won’t automatically know if all artists are dead or not, so please use this thread to tell us of any artists who you know are dead. We’ll update their profile to reflect the year of death.

Locative Iphone Applications

Thanks nony.

We’re not sure how to decide what is ‘nearby’ or not… how many nearby tram stops does tram tracker show you? Within a kilometre or so, or just a few hundred metres? Just the closest one?

I like the idea of planning in advance…

We are planning to work with Google apps – however we might need to do more research into the costs – Google maps are only free for non-commercial use (well, that was the deal last time I checked, which was a few months ago). I’m curious to know why the two you’ve just mentioned don’t use Google maps… it may be a cost issue.

RSS Feeds

Hey all

We’ve updated the RSS feeds so they are going through feedburner.

The old RSS addresses are being put through a redirect, so they should still work, however unfortunately some don’t update in your feedreader. For instance, if you are using Sage, it will look like we don’t have any updates when we do.

The best way around this is to replace your old RSS address with the new one.

EDITORIAL

Issue 1 2009
Welcome to the first issue of FLASH online, a quarterly journal of reviews, interviews and comment on photography and video, published by the Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne.
by Kyla McFarlane

INTERVIEWS

The Distance that Cannot be Photographed
At the female convict sites I used to wonder where the history has gone. The answer I ended up with was twofold – it’s either disappeared into the ground or vanished into the air.
Geoffrey Batchen interviews Anne Ferran

Past, Present and Illusion in Hamish Tocher’s Photography
There’s a visceral narcissism in the early Renaissance, a kind of youthful full-of-the-joys-of vigour, a really sexy peachy sense of bodies, that is what clicks so nicely with the fashion images that I’ve been comparing it with.
Naomi Cass interviews Hamish Tocher

REVIEWS

Nici Cumpston Attesting
These are highly political works, confronting issues of sustainability and the impact on a culture that occupied the place for thousands of years.
reviewed by Odette Kelada

¡no one wants t’be trapped inside a fantasy!
Ellis and Gursky are akin to two different types of popularist art fantasies: the former as charming, nostalgic; the latter as challenging, spectacular.
reviewed by Peter Shand

Every photograph is not so much a picture of the world as a piece of it. Some people don’t believe this. Others do.

Experimental AV performances at the IMA, Brisbane

Mono6
Atsuhiro Ito and Robbie Avenaim plus Guests

As Optrum, Tokyo-based artist and curator Atsuhiro Ito explores an intense almost coma-inducing haze of flickering light and noise using his self-designed amplified fluorescent-light instrument. He teams up with Australia’s most unusual rhythmic force Robbie Avenaim, for an all-out sensual assault. Presented in conjunction with Audiopollen, Mono6 plays host to the launch of Audiopollen’s Ready, Fire, Aim festival, a culmination of all things underground. MONO: Expansive Sonic Environments, Intersecting Audiospheres, Singularity Of Sound, curated by Lawrence English (::Room40::). Thursday 26 March at 7pm.

microMONO5
Marco Fusinato, James Rushford, and Joe Talia

Fresh from his inclusion in Sonic Youth’s Sensational Fix exhibition, Melbourne-based artist and musician Marco Fusinato heads to Brisbane to debut material from his forthcoming Ripping Skies album, on American label No Fun Productions. An exploratory guitarist, he creates massive washes of caustic vibration. Joining him are electro-acoustic scouts Joe Talia and James Rushford who seek out the exotic and erratic terrain of their instruments. They are purveyors of stasis: part instrumental concrete, part alien drone. MONO: Expansive Sonic Environments, Intersecting Audiospheres, Singularity Of Sound, curated by Lawrence English (::Room40::). Thursday 9 April at 7pm.

microMONO6
Mike Cooper

Italian-based post-everything musician Mike Cooper creates a live soundtrack to Paradjanov’s lauded film The Colour Of Pomegranates. Cooper writes, ‘This ravishingly beautiful film was originally refused an export license, and banned by Soviet authorities for religious sympathies and lack of conformity to the strict socialist realism of the former Soviet Union. Paradjanov was arrested in December of 1973 and sentenced to five years hard-labor camps, charged with rape and homosexuality. His extraordinary film traces the life of eighteenth-century Armenian poet Sayat Nova (’The King of Song’), but with a series of painterly images strung together to form tableaux corresponding to moments of his life rather than any conventional biographic techniques. Pomegranates bleed their juice into the shape of a map of the old region of Armenia, the poet changes sex at least once in the course of his career, angels descend: the result is a stream of religious, poetic and local iconography which has an arcane and astonishing beauty.’ MONO: Expansive Sonic Environments, Intersecting Audiospheres, Singularity Of Sound, curated by Lawrence English (::Room40::). Thursday 23 April at 7pm. [image: The Colour of Pomegranates]

Website Updates

Hi all,

It’s been a while since we were able to update the website, but we’re back on track now.

You’ll notice some new Australian precincts (we’ve added generic ‘Regional’ and ‘Metro’ precincts. Plus Katherine in NT gets a mention, as does Townsville and the South-West of WA).

You may also have noticed that your exhibition long description was being chopped off when you first entered it. That’s been fixed too.

If you’ve got any complaints put them in this thread, we’ll pay attention to those that people complain about the most.

Introduction to Digital Photography Semester 1: 14–15 February; Semester 2: 18–19 July

This intermediate weekend course covers the exposure, development and post processing of digital camera RAW files.

The overall aim is to establish a comprehensive image processing workflow.

Artabase Accessibility

In the last survey we did, we received feedback that someone would like the mobile version of Artabase to use text (like S.M.S.) because that way the deaf respondent could still use the service.

This was great feedback, which we really appreciate, as Artabase aims to become a very accessible service.

So, please use this thread to make any accessibility suggestions.

We’re aware that we don’t follow best practice everywhere on the website, at the moment, but we do aim to adopt the good guidelines over at webstandards.org in due course.

Some of the other Artabase-specific things we’d like to do include making good descriptions of the images on the website for people with vision impairment.

When you upload an image at the moment you’ll probably notice a description field. The field isn’t very long, but we will be increasing the size of it. The aim is to allow that field to contain a rich, visual description of the image, so that someone who is visually impaired can use a screen reader to get a description of the image in circumstances where they can’t see the actual picture itself.

We look forward to hearing your ideas along these lines.

How can I upload some of my work photos?

actually ignore that image link. the escape escaped the command.

basically just type your image link and stick an exclamation mark at each end of it, no spaces.

How can I upload some of my work photos?

Hi Anon

At the moment we only have uploads for one image on each artist profile, and one image on each Exhibition. You can add Exhibition listings for your prior Exhibitions, they don’t have to be coming up.

If you have images hosted on another website tho, you can actually embed them into your description field.

To do this, you go to the image on your other website, and right click on it, and copy the image location.

Then, you can come back to this website, edit your description, and insert the image using markdown…

if this is your image location http://yourwebsite.com/image.gif

then the markdown code to insert your image needs to look like this

!http://yourwebsite.com/image.gif!

After you save the edit, and reload your page, the image should display.

This website is still very much a beta version – we will be allowing people to upload more images and list each artwork later… but at the moment we’re busy quietly tiptoeing around an economic crisis.

Hope that helps.

Artabase Blog - Call for Submissions

Artabase is seeking submissions and proposals for our new blog.

We are looking for artist profiles, informative articles, essays, interviews and anything else that embraces our byline: ‘Because people love art’

At this stage we are unable to pay our contributors, something we hope will change as we grow. In the meantime we aim to expand the opportunities for online publication of writing for and about the art world. In doing this we hope to provide a space that is receptive to emerging writers, academics and writing of a style or content that falls outside the scope of other art publications.

If you would like any further information or would like to send in an idea or completed submission, please email: kate.harris@artabase.net

Forum formatting practice thread

who said do or do not there is no try

you’ve almost got the link, just put the exclamation mark after word “link” instead of at the end

this is the formatting bible, it probably explains it better http://hobix.com/textile/

Forum formatting practice thread

well you got a bold word, that’s a start : )

that’s done by putting an asterisk at each end of the word you want to make bold

looks like you might have used an asterisk for the link text above instead of a quotation mark

the uk and us aren’t working at the moment, but I believe that’s because there hasn’t been any content for this month yet.

Thanks for the great suggestion Mike, we’re looking in to this.

We chose email for the opps because some people like to treat their inbox like a to-do list, so if one is going to apply for an opp, keeping the opp in the inbox can be a good reminder to get it done.

But I understand info-overload, and wanting to keep a zen inbox is a big part of that!

Ok, we’re aware that you can’t create a new thread at the moment. Please excuse us as we adjust our VPS.

List any other problems you encounter here…

If you FAIL on the add new exhibition page 2 form, it might be because you’re trying to put a real post code in the post code field.

Please note that we are removing that form in the next release… in the mean time you can just write 1234 in the post code field on that customer details form. We apologise, but the form was designed for Australia and doesn’t fit international post codes.

soo…..

It’s been mentioned that a local rss feed would be good. What do you want in it?

My first thoughts are a feed for openings tonight in your town, and a separate feed for exhibitions which are open today in your town?

Victorian Premier's Design Awards

Premier’s Design Awards/

Introduction

The Premier’s Design Awards are a biennial awards program developed by the Victorian State Government to recognise excellence in the realm of design practice in Victoria, and to communicate the value of good design to a broad public and business audience both locally and internationally.

The 2008 Premier’s Design Awards offers a number of categories under which entries can be made. This comprehensive category list clearly communicates the breadth of design skills on offer in Victoria, and allows the Premier’s Design Awards exhibition and publication to be a comprehensive representation of the best work being generated by Victorian design practices in the 2007 / 2008 period.

Intention

The 2008 Premier’s Design Awards will identify and celebrate Victorian design practices and professionals who demonstrate an ability to deliver exceptional design outcomes that present a comprehensive design solution of the highest quality. In today’s context, design quality is assessed by an increasingly discerning community that expects the innovative manipulation of function, materiality, space and aesthetics that delivers value, provokes delight and anticipates emerging social and environmental conditions.

Through the Awards program a series of Premier’s Design Marks are presented to design practitioners across an array of professional disciplines. Those who receive a Premier’s Design Mark will be designers and practices that have developed their skills and their creative processes to respond to the new more demanding market conditions, producing exemplary approaches and outcomes that are perceived by the profession, clients and the community as a contribution to a sustainable future.

As the highest acknowledgement of excellence in the realm of design practice in Victoria, receiving a Victorian Premier’s Design Mark and being included in the Premier’s Design Awards exhibition and publication is an opportunity offered to professional designers at the very top of their game – in terms of skill, service and social awareness.

The Premier’s Award for Design Leadership

An important award, designed to recognise design leadership in Victoria. The recipient will be an individual, not necessarily a professional designer, who has led Victoria by design, profoundly influenced the design industry and is exemplary in his/her contribution to the development of design in Victoria. Nominations for this award are drawn from across the industry and assessed by an independent panel of industry figures.

Artabase is a Webby Honoree

The 2008 12th Annual Webby Awards received so much outstanding content they decided to create an extra category to acknowledge websites that didn’t make it in to the Award’s list of nominees.

The new category of ‘Honorees’ recognizes the quality of the top 15% of websites submitted to the Webby Awards.

I’m very excited to announce that Artabase has been selected as one of the Honorees in the category of Art websites.

Check out the other Honorees here

Art Opportunities Email List for Australia

This thread is just a general area for discussing the Australian art opportunities email list.

At the moment the list is subscribed to other lists. Some people don’t like this; but for the sake of disseminating as many opportunities as we can we have decided to let through any emails with an opportunity in them, including those from other email lists. However, we won’t let an email from one of these other lists go through if it does not contain an opportunity.

We’re subscribed to:

Australian Network for Art and Technology
Accessible Arts
eGroundwork from Regional Arts Victoria
Arts NT Ebulletin

Please note that messages originating on these lists might say something like:

“You have received this information because you are subscribed to the eGroundwork mailing list.”

This is not the case if you are receiving the email because you are on the Artabase email list. You should use the Artabase footer link to unsubscribe if you don’t want to receive this information any more.

Please feel free to discuss this list. If you don’t like the way it’s structured feel free to mention that.

Artabase on Facebook

Facebook groups seem a bit useless when you’ve got millions of members (which we do of course… ahem).

So I’ve created one of those new page things they’ve got, you can become a fan of Artabase (should you wish), here:

Formatting / Markup Help and practise...

Markup is the funny types of formatting you use on some websites – it’s a website security thing in case you’re wondering why.

There are some hints with form fields, but feel free to post questions here and try things out.

For instance to make something bold, add an asterisk to each end of the bold bit.

To embed an image, first put an exclamation mark, then right after it put the URL of the image, then another exclamation mark. The alternate text bit is optional.

Here’s our logo:

Australian Art Precincts

Hey everyone

We are aware the list of Art Precincts for Australia is not complete.

We are reviewing this at the moment, so if you could add your requests for new precincts to this thread that would be great.

So far we’ve got a request for NSW Northern Rivers and QLD Fraser Coast.

We also added VIC High st, Northcote last update.

Promotional Materials

Hi everyone,

We have some small business-card sized flyers with a little bit of information about the website on them. If you’d like some sent to your gallery, please email info@artabase.net with your postal address and the quantity of visitors your gallery receives each month.

Alternatively you can leave your details here.

I can send these to anyone who wants to leave them in their local shops too, as one kind artist has already offered to do.

RSS Feeds

Hey all,

Our test RSS feed (on the discussion board) appears to be working, which is nice to see, so please feel free to start using it, and add suggestions below for parts of the website you want a feed on.

The first I’ll be working on is new artists, galleries and exhibitions being added to the website.

For those of you who don’t know what an RSS feed is or is used for, in short, people use it so that they can find out what updates have happened to a website without actually going to that website. (syndicatists will bite my ear off over the simplification of the usage, but that’s enough of an explanation for the context of this website).

If you’d like to learn more, see the wikipedia entry on RSS here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rss

I use the Firefox plugin called ‘sage’ to read my RSS feeds, it works well on osx and winxp. If you use firefox you can install Sage here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/77

An excellent arts RSS feed is We Make Money Not Art at http://www.we-make-money-not-art.com/

Art Openings that are happening tonight

We’ve added a new section where you can see art openings that are on tonight.

Have a look at http://artabase.net/listings/exhibitions/openings

To make your exhibition opening show up in the list, you need to go to http://artabase.net/my_account/listings/exhibitions/my_exhibitions and add information about the opening celebration.

It’ll take a while before we build up a lot of content there, but handy a feature I think!
