Re: Re: How to Display Digital Artwork in a Gallery


I have over time acquired, an assortment of CRT's and projectors and computers. which I use depending on the situation in the gallery. Most of which now only lend themselves to installation type work and not "museum quality display"
The price of small LCD screens are getting more reasonable.
I bought a used XGA projector from a rental house about 2 years ago have used it a lot since, and I pray the lamp doesn't give out anytime soon. It was a good investment. Now I have a method to exhibit which I think is the best to view the work.

Galleries and museums which show this work should be responsible for providing the correct equipment to be displayed... NOW REALITY... If I didn't provide a decent method to show my work it would not be shown, or it would on a 13" samsung VCR/TV combo that the guys in maintenance have for watching ball games.

Re: Re: Re: Biennale Internazionale dell'arte Contemporanea?


Isn't it supposed to work like this...

I get an e-mail from a group of artists in Gijon Spain, who say they saw my video on postvideoart.com, The gentleman asks if I would like to exhibit at his festival. I say yes, I send him a DVD. We both get to use the INTERNATIONAL ARTIST thing in PR, My work gets a wider audience, He gets content for his festival.
No money exhanged.

OR
I submitt work to a call for entires, send a check for 5 ( do the conversion), and if my work is judged good enough, and fits the theme of the show, I get my work accepted and shown in the UK. Again a win/win for me and the exhibitor I'm out 8 bucks, no big deal.

OR
Barbara Gladstone's assistant calls me up, say they think I'm the next Matthew Barney, :-), They have been chosen to submit a proposal to the Venice Biennale, I submit the proposal to fill a gallery full of sand with 50 video monitors burried in it, all playing re-runs of I Love Lucy, she sends me a check for $1,000,000, and a plane ticket to Venice.

well of course two of the above stories are true, one isn't... guess which one.

Re: Re: Biennale Internazionale dell'arte Contemporanea?


I had the distinguished Honor to be selected last year, my good man, and yes Virginia this is a SCAM!
Pay to Play... all the way!

I like how they put the word Biennale in the title and BANG! instant legitimacy. ( or so they think) I think they prey on the fact that the arts are so ignored in the US. I feel bad for anyone who might actually send money to them, thinking it will help their career.

In the 80's a filmmaker and I collaborated in a group called SCAM, it stood for Southern Colorado Alternative Media. we never quite got the nerve to pull something like this off, but we did do some swell art pranks.

Now I bet they do have an art exhibit, but I'm almost certain that it will turn out only to be an expensive vacation that you most likely can't afford.

It's the art version of those e-mails that start:
Hello my friend, I am the former Ambassador of kingdom of Svengalli...
