Small presses, university journals, and literary magazines have long provided publication opportunities to visual artists for their cover and editorial images. Their traditional freedom from advertiser control has allowed them to provide a home to work that is challenging or confrontational. Although they welcome visual art, such publications’ primary modus is text and the imagery is often sprinkled among the stories, several artists are typically included in a single issue, and the number of works from any one artist is sometimes quite limited. Non-profit Dek Unu Magazine focuses on the visual, providing space for one artist at a time to show adventurous work in depth, themed and curated by the artist alone. During the publication month, each featured artist is promoted extensively on web and social media.

I started painting early, I do not remember age, but discovering as a child distant drawings and scribbles on the walls of my parents’ workshop. Then, I was drawing for hours on my parents’ sewing machines while they worked. I did it for pleasure and because my weak health did not allow me to run around with other children. Then they sent me to a teacher and I met the oil painting, the models, and the museums and galleries, as well as the concerts, since it was part of my teacher’s demands. As a teenager I embarked on painting as an adventure, which led me to discover other active artists, to live together in the San Telmo Fair. The Constructivism was a solid foundation for walking the path of Painting, giving a solid approach towards mural painting & Applied Art. With the decades this form of work received new names as Urban Art, and many times in fusion with graffiti artists. I believe that the artist’s task is to give a testimony of his time and to tell something individual and important of one: to make a place on earth and relate something unique and relevant. When I have the […]

The Kulturdrogerie association, located in a former drugstore on Gentzgasse 86-88 in Vienna’s 18th district, Währing, makes studio space, production space, and exhibition and presentation area available to selected, invited artists. The association was founded in 2005 by sculptors Markus Hiesleitner and Franz Tišek. Kulturdrogerie is an experimental art space that functions as an ideational testing ground, and provides artists with support and space that they otherwise would not have at their disposal to realize their projects. The Kulturdrogerie thus views its purpose as a place of production and exhibition for contemporary young art.

ada is… ein Projekt zur künstlerischen Zwischennutzung, welches ausgehend von den lokalen Gegebenheiten versucht KünstlerInnen zur Auseinandersetzung dieser conditio humana einzuladen, um dahingehend auch die eigene Rolle in der Gesellschaft zu hinterfragen. „Die einzige Konstante – ist die Transformation“ Dazu werden dort regelmäßige Präsentationen von unterschiedlichen Positionen der Gegenwartskunst stattfinden. Der Fokus ist eine breit gefächerte Präsentation (Malerei, Bildhauerei, Performance, Medienkunst etc.) von Kunst im Wechselspiel mit der Örtlichkeit. Ziel ist die Schaffung einer sich prozesshaft transformierenden Ausstellung, mit jeweils in situ entstehender Kunst, die in Symbiose mit dem Raum geschieht. Ein Umgang mit der Umgebung, eine Herausforderung an das Schaffen selbst – Ephemera und das du. Die Ausstellungsreihe zum Thema der Verwandlung und Vergänglichkeit der Identität repräsentiert in den Resten der menschlichen Existenz, ist die Vorgabe der Wandlung, nicht um das alte wieder lebendig zu machen sondern die Kunst als Sonde in die vielfältigen Ebenen der Humankondition zu nützen. Die Künstler sind konfrontiert mit der Geschichte des Raumes, dieser bedingt den darin stattfindenden künstlerischen Prozess; der Metamorphose vom Vergangenen zum Jetzt, hin zum zukünftig endgültigen Vergessen. Das Ausloten/Verbiegen der Räumlichkeiten, deren Geschichte, deren Umfeld, der künstlerischen Grenzen, stehen im Blickfeld. Transformierende Ausstellung: auf den vorgefundenen Resten aufbauend, lagern sich die unterschiedlichen […]

Push/Pull’s mission is to: Promote underground art and comics Foster community between those creating and viewing art Encourage emerging artists, illustrators and cartoonists Innovate the way art is consumed by presenting it in a unique environment and with nontraditional events Stimulate Diversity by actively seeking out marginalized and under-represented artists Underground art is work that challenges the viewer to feel something, to think about something. Art that is made by professionals that learned all the rules about making art and then broke them. Art that is made by professionals that never learned any of the rules about making art and made it up as they went along. It’s creepy, weird, controversial, strange. Push/Pull exists to show the alternative possibility of what an art gallery can be. In order to further our mission we’ve created a nonprofit section of our business that is powered by Shunpike.

The Rib publishes commentary and criticism in the form of reviews, editorials, interviews, and essays that connects artists, spaces, curators, and advocates working outside of major arts communities in the United States. Smaller cities foster dynamic art making that demands a comprehensive critical platform in order for artists and their advocates to freely exchange ideas and opportunities. The Rib is founded on the belief that critical coverage leads to dialogue, dialogue leads to a strong network, and connectivity leads to greater social and economic viability. Like a physical rib–a small but essential bone within a network of other to protect a pulsing organ– The Rib continuously expands and contracts to facilitate a flow of dialogue and critique in order to collapse boundaries between communities and audiences. To that end, we seek to connect, collaborate with, and safeguard organs of art making on the American periphery.
ComPeung is not only the 1st independent AiR program in Thailand, but also the longest ongoing program since 2007. We have hosted over 100 artists in a wide variety of disciplines from around the world. Hidden behind a line of teak trees near public ponds, the ComPeung site began as just a piece of empty farmland without any facilities. Now after over 10 years of sculpting this micro community from scratch–planting all the trees, bringing in the road, water, and electricity, and building the houses–with the help of resident artists, our friends and family ComPeung has become a peaceful garden oasis. As an evolving art project, ComPeung encourages artists to explore and discover – not only new ideas, techniques, and networks, but also themselves as human beings though the process of creative activities and everyday living. ComPeung aims to be an open space for dialogues, encouraging the exchange of ideas and experiments, and exploring the interdependence between art, artists and society. For artists who need time away from regular commitments to finish current projects, to reflect on their practice, or to explore and develop new works, ComPeung is the ideal place to do so. In an unregimented and relaxed atmosphere, artists have the freedom to focus […]

BUREAU of CHANGE is an education-centric lab for real art practice in New Orleans. We create, curate and exhibit socially and politically engaged work. BUREAU of CHANGE was founded by Margot Herster with a group of her former students and recent graduates from Louisiana State University. Originating out of dissatisfaction with higher education, particularly in arts and media, BUREAU developed into a new school in the form of an atelier-style studio. A diverse group—established artists and designers, paid student apprentices and young artists, scholars and community experts, and the public—interact to create. Our objectives are influenced by the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project implemented during the Great Depression. We harken a a lost but not forgotten era when the government stimulated jobs in the arts by employing artists to create public works and subsidizing community education centers that offered training in arts skills applicable to industrial jobs of the time. Our process commissions artists and non-artists to collaborate on creative works aimed at inciting institutional change while studying social technology, digital media theory, interdisciplinary research and artistic production. BUREAU of CHANGE produces exhibitions, participatory and site-specific experiences, workshops and public programming, made-for-internet works, and collaborations with local and international […]

On Saturday, numerous unique events under the international art project “3FREE” will take place. “The artists of the three Baltic countries have been cooperating for a long time – the three means more fun,” says Ignas Kazakevičius, the project curator and director of the KCCC, “We, the three rather dissimilar countries, have had long historical interconnections that brought our cultures together. We have always been a part of the map of Europe, yet, the vectors of freedom had been directed towards the west. Today, like a hundred years ago, freedom obviously needs to be fought for. Not by all at once but separately. After all, one’s freedom is not equivalent to the other’s […]
