Dispatx Art Collective

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 completed work related to the theme. In addition, and as a part of an ongoing investigation of curatorial practice, the Eminent Domain forum will remain open throughout the duration of this collection.

The curatorial narrative is best articulated through a correspondance between various readings. While projects such as Hospital 106 4º1ª by Jordi Canudas and Isabel Banal and Someone Called Me... by Emma Wilcox are the works which most directly address the theme at hand, projects such as Green Screen by Neil Chapman and David Stent, or Ellen Zweig’s My Language Overwhelms Her Text, use literary fiction to generate multiple attempts and points of inflection.

We are also pleased to announce the start of exploration of works related to the theme Appropriation in Creative Practice, which can be followed over the coming six months in Make (dispatx.com/make). These pieces, including works by Sandra Gamarra, Scott MacLeod, Åsa Ståhl and Adad Hannah, also include among them the projects funded through our inaugural commissions program. The completed collection will be published in March 2008.
