Dispatx Art Collective : Curatorial Platform

Dispatx Art Collective : Curatorial Platform

(Barcelona, 27/04/2007) Dispatx Art Collective announced today the inauguration of a commissions program for the creation of original work. The inaugural commission award consists of two commissions of between 750 and 2000 euros in the categories of Photography and Sculpture.

From 2004, Dispatx Art Collective (www.dispatx.com) has worked with emerging and established artists investigating the creative method – the organising process that translates creative vision into creative output. Dispatx is now the internet’s leading curatorial platform developing and presenting contemporary art and literature.

With over 100 published projects in six themed collections - comprising well over 2000 pages of original content – Dispatx Art Collective will continue to develop and investigate creative and curatorial practice via the commissions program for the creation of original work. Every six months we will commission between two and five projects investigating the theme in exploration.

For the eighth collection the theme is Appropriation in Creative Practice, with a particular focus on the use of developed ideas and theories as a material across different artistic disciplines. This theme will be developed between July and December 2007.

The commissions are privately funded by contemporary art collectors and may lead to long-term patronage or representation.

For more details on the commissions program, please visit www.dispatx.com/commissions/

Dispatx Art Collective is the leading online curatorial platform investigating creative and curatorial practice.

Emanuel Licha - It's Like Being in a Movie
We are pleased to announce a further addition to the Eminent Domain collection currently published in Show: Emanuel Licha’s It’s Like Being in a Movie. This project, developed online in Make, explores the ritual systemisation of violence and destruction, particularly through modern media. The assumed persona of the War Tourist is an amorphous spokesperson for the unsettling combination of war, disaster and tourism, a coupling of event and response that
Dispatx | Eminent Domain - New Collection
Eminent Domain examines notions of blockage, recourse and resistance that can emerge in diverse contexts – and what it can mean when these manifestations are channelled into artistic product. The seventh collection of Dispatx Art Collective includes works developed by visual artists, musicians, writers, dancers and performance artists. The collection, which can be seen in Show (dispatx.com/show), includes works developed online as part of the site as well as submissions of
Call for Proposals | Appropriation in Creative Practice
(Barcelona, 21/04/2007) Dispatx Art Collective (dispatx.com) is now accepting proposals for full-length collaborative projects related to the theme in exploration, Appropriation in Creative Practice. Contemporary artists regularly appeal to theory and philosophy as justification, premise, or point of departure. More recently some artists have begun to incorporate theoretical texts as a material for their work. This treatment of philosophy, as if it were cardboard or paint, questions perceived boundaries and
Space2: A Psychocartography of Conceived Presence
(Oslo, 03.04.2007) Following the success of the installation Space2 at ROM for Art + Architecture, its new location is now at Euklides (Pilestredet 75C, Oslo). Space2 is the continued development of Transcendence, developed by the Norwegian architectural laboratory SERENDIPIT:US (Eli Goldstein & Kjersti Wikstrøm) at Dispatx Art Collective (www.dispatx.com). During 2 simultaneous journeys in Berlin and New York, an archive of experience (atlas of emotion) was established. Through conceiving presence, the

The Alfa Art Gallery Thanks its Sponsors of the 2013 New Brunswick Art Salon
The Alfa Art Gallery would like to extend a wholehearted thank you to the Magyar Bank Charitable Foundation, for its sponsorship of the 2013 New Brunswick Art Salon.

Johansson Projects presents Control Room featuring Josh Short
Johansson Projects presents an installation by Josh Short, where crisis is business as usual. 
The exhibition begins with a deceptive facade of crudely framed screen prints. Upon further investigation, viewers can find a hidden door to the surveillance control room; a cross between a post-apocalyptic survivalist bunker and a lazy police office. As the new commanders of this strange outpost, they are equipped with food, tools, and recreational activities -
Johansson Projects presents Solo Exhibiton by Erik Parra
In his first solo exhibition at the gallery, Erik Parra’s confettied newspaper clippings trap vintage advertisements in an impossible temporality: both as a newspaper documentation of the past and a proactive peek into future shapings of collective hopes and dreams. The tangled layers of artificiality eminent in both the medium and the message- between black and white and RGB, history and desire, question the relevance of a search for American
