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 […]

GLOBAL ART PROJECT1) Promoting the Creative Intelligence of the Global Arts Community Toward the Necessarily Collaborative Future : 2) If two people are working in harmony on a project then a third mind will spontaneously be generated in which the participants are able to draw from the knowledge and inspiration of each other through the third mind. -Carl Heyward

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. Our nonprofit work includes adult and teen education, community events, and cultural outreach.

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 CHANGEBUREAU 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 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 […]

Kia Ora and hello 🙂 I totally mistook this post as the gallery section… so here we are with photos… enjoy(!) and I hope this doesn’t suddenly dominate your screen.. XCHC is an artist-run initiative started in 2014 to help revive the creative energy after a devastating earthquake in our city, Christchurch NZ. We’ve been considered an incubator, school of life, social/cultural experiment, and social enterprise amongst other things.. all have elements of truth and most still don’t understand wtf we are. Which is how we like it. This space has brought together thousands of people for connection and appreciation through showcase events, working in the makerspace/shared studios, staying/living here, and simply great coffee & beer. Our purpose is to Cultivate a Creative Ecology; a result that stems from mixing various levels of experience, creative practices and cultures to achieve 1 common interest; to grow. It was about 6 years in that we realized 1 space wasnt enough, and a collective formed to start taking over abandoned spaces around our city and creating private, immersive, and intentional nightlife events with other artists.. many who feel they don’t fit into the traditional art world.. probably for the best. Our work extends […]
