OUT NOW: "SAMO(c) IS DEAD. PRESS PLAY" by COLL.EO at the Widget Art Gallery


Dates:
Mon Jun 09, 2014 14:35 - Thu Jul 10, 2014


Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to curate/present "SAMO© IS DEAD. PRESS PLAY" by Matteo Bittanti Colleen Flaherty aka COLL.EO at the Widget Art Gallery http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html on IPhone, IPad and OSX-Dashboard. June 09 - July 10 2014.

About the exhibition:"SAMO© IS DEAD. PRESS PLAY"

In 1978, a wave of graffiti appeared in downtown Manhattan in the form of wall texts about and or signed by SAMO©.
Thirty six years later, the avatar of Jean-Michel Basquiat* is back with a vengeance and a spray can, doomed to replay the past, within the spaces of the WAG, the premier art gallery in Liberty City.

This is not appropriation.

This is GRAND THEFT ART.

COLL.EO, 2014

* No, not Oscar Murillo. The "real" Basquiat.

COLL.EO is a collaboration between Colleen Flaherty and Matteo Bittanti established in 2012. COLL.EO currently operates between San Francisco and the deep end.

About the WAG:

The “WAG" is a mini 3-dimensional, single room gallery that fits into people pocket 'cause I've developed it for IPhone, IPod Touch and I Pad. Every month, directly on audience mobile, The “WAG” hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to the dynamic site-specific contest. So, the Widget Art Gallery works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and as a permanent collections museum because it conserves all the past exhibitions inside an online archive. For IPhone and IPod touch, just copy this url http://www.chiarapassa.it/wag/mobile/ in Safari and choose: “add to home” and the WAG's icon will be saved on your IPhone. Do the same for IPad but paste this other URL: http://www.chiarapassa.it/wagipad/mobile/, or download the widget version for Mac osx dashboard at: http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html

Best regards, Chiara.

OUT NOW: "La mouche" by Daniele Puppi at the Widget Art Gallery


Dates:
Thu May 08, 2014 12:25 - Mon Jun 09, 2014

Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to curate/present "La mouche" by Daniele Puppi at the Widget Art Gallery (http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html) on IPhone, IPad and OSX-Dashboard. May 08 - June 08 2014.

About the exhibition: "La mouche"

Puppi's artwork never alludes to a story - it has neither beginning nor ending but it is always site-specific. In fact, his artwork explores the space in all directions, sometimes vibrating and exploding the space itself, reaching the synthesis of perceptions throughout a wide-range sensorial experience. Puppi’s artwork shows the moment in which the viewer comes across it with amazing effects. La mouche, an artwork designed specifically for the WAG displays a buzzing fly that runs across the entire perimeter of the WAG. Unexpectedly, the fly discovering a magic point in the room unlocks a mechanism similar to the doors of the pyramids ensuring a surprising end!

Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to present "27 Mb of stroke" by Caterina Strati at the Widget Art Gallery on IPhone, IPad and OSX-Dashboard. March 30 - April 30 2014. http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html

About the exhibition: "27 Mb of stroke" by Caterina Strati

"27 Mb of stroke" is a site-specific installation that evokes similarities between neural networks and constellations in an instant journey that is repeated endlessly. The WAG becomes the ideal space to match the infinitely small to the infinitely large, the ephemeral to the eternal. http://www.caterinastrati.net/

OUT NOW: "Lenticular Encryption" by Prosthetic Knowledge at the Widget Art Gallery


Dates:
Sat Feb 22, 2014 11:35 - Sat Mar 22, 2014

Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to present "Lenticular Encryption" by Prosthetic Knowledge at the Widget Art Gallery on IPhone, IPad and OSX-Dashboard. February 22 - March 22 2014. http://www.chiarapassa.it/upcoming.html

About the exhibition: "Lenticular Encryption".

This is an experimental project that examines the aesthetics of lenticularization and extends the creative possibilities of the GIF format.
Lenticularization of an image allows the viewer to be presented with additional visual information within the same space, dependent on angle. Striped of lenticular sheets, we see that information altogether, almost theoretically identical to the Cubist idea of relativity presented as one. This project aims to appreciate the encrypted information as it is as well as decoded with additional media. Also, it aims to highlight and hopefully inspire the idea that there is more that can be done with the GIF medium - new tricks and methods can be applied to animation making, whether it is 'flipping' from one image to another, or added depth ... Gif making can have additional visual narratives.
Prosthetic Knowledge which is a Tumblr blog about art, tech, and creativity. http://prostheticknowledge.tumblr.com/
