OAKLAND, Calif. — September 29, 2006 - Swarm Gallery presents its first (ever) international competition, with selections of digital work by Marisa Olson. Marisa is an artist, critic, and curator who divides her time between SF & NY, where she is Editor & Curator at Large of Rhizome at the New Museum of Contemporary Art. Marisa has written for Flash Art, ArtReview, Wired, Mute, Afterimage, Art on Paper, Artweek, Surface, Planet, the San Francisco Chronicle, and several other publications.

Swarm received over 1300 artwork submissions from 220 artists from around the world for Marisa's review. Of the entrants, Marisa selected 15 new works created by 9 artists from here to New York. We're happy to introduce the finalists:

Kari Altmann, Krista Hoefle, Ellen Jantzen, Andrew Kleindolph, Brooke A. Knight, LoVid (Kyle Lapidus + Tali Hinkis), Guthrie Lonergan, Mark Luthringer, and Micke Tong

In PROJECT SPACE - Erik Friedman and Ema-Harris Sintamarian’s collaborative installation, "Storm," resembles an overhead topographical view of sections of East and West Oakland. Made entirely from fragile materials such as works on paper, foam-core board, and balsa wood, Storm is an amalgamation of various architectural elements, many seemingly realistic, others purely imagined, but ultimately offering a composite of what many would identify with these parts of the city. Addressing dilapidated, forgotten, and impoverished aspects of “neighborhood,” Friedman and Sintamarian metaphorically reveal the collision of culture, commerce, and exhausted elements of what feels like a completely forgotten and squandered environment.
