Ortega y Gasset Projects (OyG) is a non-profit artist-run curatorial collective and exhibition space in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Founded in May 2013 in Bushwick, Brooklyn, OyG moved to Gowanus in February 2015. Ortega y Gasset is a non-profit organization run by a group of directors based in New York and other regions throughout the US. All directors are working artists and in addition to writing, curating, installing and doing administrative work to run OyG, their directorship enables them to connect with the community that OyG fosters to support their practices as painters, photographers, sculptors and writers. OyG is entirely run by working artists, and so recognizes that exploration is key to the sustainment of artistic vitality. Thus, we embark on an exploratory model where artists take the role of curator, critic and promoter. Working without specific intentions of commercial profit or an explicit curatorial ideology, the goal of OyG is to mount exhibitions that provoke interpretation and dialogue and bolster artistic community. In doing so, we participate within a wider forum to disseminate aesthetic experience in new ways and expand our roles, priorities and scope of influence within art culture. Half of the current co-directors of OyG live outside of New […]

AADK Spain is an artist-run platform that develops spaces for research and contemporary creation. With a focus set on experimental processes, its primary interest is to explore the notions of body, territory, and spatiality. The platform advocates the decentralization of culture and access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. It addresses local issues as means to understand global problems. Currently based in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) it holds several programs among which its Artist Residency and Cruce Programs stand out. As a team, we believe that all artists we host are an active part of our platform. Therefore, we foster networks with other cultural and artistic enterprises, helping to promote their mobility on national and international circuits.

Paper toys, máscaras y productos de papel para creativos y futuros genios Somos diseñadores gráficos egresados en el año 2004, período de progresivo desarrollo de los medios digitales y justo al borde de la explosión e instalación de Internet como medio de comunicación masiva. Durante nuestra formación académica aprendimos muchísimo sobre los medios impresos y con el avanzar del tiempo nos adaptamos rápida y fácilmente a las nuevas tecnologías. En exposiciones, eventos y talleres relacionados con nuestra profesión y junto con el desarrollo artístico nos fuimos familiarizando con el hecho de que a través de internet se estaba compartiendo información entre artistas y profesionales gráficos, en la que se ponían en formato digital plantillas para ser intervenidas por ilustradores y devueltas vía internet, para ser descargadas e impresas en casa u oficinas de diseñadores. En otras palabras, conocimos prontamente los llamados “paper toys, tan famosos hoy en día. Fue allí, en esa área, visualizamos la oportunidad de crear un producto físico, interactivo y lúdico usando medios tradicionales clásicos de impresión para mantener una conexión con el pasado y que a la vez nos permitiera trabajar con artistas de cualquier parte del mundo, traspasando fronteras gracias a los nuevos medios de […]
