Media Art & Art Market: an interview with Pau Waelder | Digicult | Digital Art, Design & Culture

Media Art & Art Market: an interview with Pau Waelder | Digicult | Digital Art, Design & Culture | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Pau Waelder is a researcher, art critic and curator who recently finished his PhD about the art market, its displacement on internet platforms and the interactions between contemporary art and New Media Art. His research acknowledge the explosion of the Post-Internet Art, as example of an artistic sector connected to New Media Art that stimulated the interest of the traditional art market.

 

Post-Internet Art has been for many a short parenthesis, a phenomenon which is already obsolete, but it setted a precedent of a successful artistic production for the art market, in the general context of New Media Art, even if some artists of the new generation does not recognize himself in the New Media Art field. From a different perspective, this interview also focuses on the new online resources for buying art and the new forms of distributions of digital contents.

Kelani Nichole - TRANSFER (computer-based practices) Gallery - interview by independent-collectors.com | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Since its opening in 2013, the Brooklyn TRANSFER Gallery has remained dedicated to representing computer-based practices by producing solo exhibitions and presentations, experimenting with the artists "de-screening" mediated artworks to create considered physical installations. We speak to the Founder/Director of the unique space, Kelani Nichole, about her own collection of contemporary art and how some of the world's biggest collectors are welcoming new formats into their private collections.

 

IC: Tell us about your collection. How did your passion for collecting digital art come about?

 

Kelani Nichole: The collection grew out of my activities at TRANSFER, an experimental exhibition space I founded in 2013 in Brooklyn, NY to support emerging media formats. At the time, I was quite new to the art market and the world of collecting...

DIS’s Berlin Biennale Isn’t a “LOLhouse” or a Fashion Spread—It’s Charting Art’s Future by Alexander Forbes

DIS’s Berlin Biennale Isn’t a “LOLhouse” or a Fashion Spread—It’s Charting Art’s Future by Alexander Forbes | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

In the nearly one month since the 9th Berlin Biennale opened, I’ve seen a lot of articles about a slick show curated by a fashion collective from New York called DIS. I read one particularly scathing review in which Jason Farago suggests that the only responsible biennale to curate at this time of humanitarian crisis would be one that sincerely reflects on the refugees whose lives have been upended. But I haven’t read much, if anything, about what I saw this week, admittedly late in the game. DIS’s 9th Berlin Biennale, “The Present in Drag,” actually does offer pathways to break down the power systems that have contributed to the refugee crisis and the resurrection of pseudo-fascist politics. It also demonstrates a new future for art that jibes with our présent...

« La Valeur de l’Art », par Christa Sommerer et Laurent Mignonneau - Maison Populaire de Montreuil - #mediaart

« La Valeur de l’Art », par Christa Sommerer et Laurent Mignonneau - Maison Populaire de Montreuil - #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

La toile ressemble à toutes les marines qu’on trouve dans les salles d’attente de médecins ou les chambres d’hôtel : une croûte de bonne facture. Mais dès que quelqu’un s’arrête pour la regarder, un petit boîtier s’empresse de crachoter un long ruban couvert de chiffres.


Cette installation s’appelle « La Valeur de l’Art » et elle interroge ironiquement d’où vient la valeur dans une économie de l’attention. C’est une des pièces phares de la petite mais riche exposition d’art numérique qu’organise la Maison Populaire de Montreuil.

ARTPLUS is comming - Facilitating secure ownership and online trade of #mediaart

ARTPLUS is comming - Facilitating secure ownership and online trade of #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

ARTPLUS was initially created as an online platform for presenting curated contemporary art exhibitions. The best known of these is the BiennaleOnline, which opened on 26 April 2013.


The success of BiennaleOnline prompted us to separate the event from ARTPLUS and present BiennaleOnline on a platform of its own. Facilitating secure ownership and online trade of media art has now become the focal point of the ARTPLUS activity.

New media in the contemporary art market:
Access, ownership and artificial scarcity / by Pau Waelder (2016)

New media in the contemporary art market: <br/>Access, ownership and artificial scarcity  / by Pau Waelder (2016) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Since the early 2010s, the contemporary art market has been showing signs of a renewed interest in digital media. On the one hand, several online marketplaces have been launched with the support of investor groups that include leading contemporary art galleries. On the other hand, a growing number of startups have been developing forms of accessing and collecting art in a digital format by means of mobile apps, streaming services and digital frames. Most of these business initiatives have been launched in the past four to five years and are currently exploring models of selling art which have yet to prove their profitability in the context of a market that is changing rapidly, but at the same time holding on to established structures and hierarchies. 

The traditional mechanisms of selling and collecting art that have shaped the art market for more than a hundred years are being challenged by the transformations introduced by digital technologies. The Internet facilitates access to a vast amount of data, as well as the possibility of reaching audiences regardless of their geographical location, while everyday devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops provide new contexts in which to experience art, away from the white walls of the museum or the gallery. ...

The science behind the art of Jeff Koons // by Nina Stoller-Lindsey /// #artsci #mediaart

The science behind the art of Jeff Koons // by Nina Stoller-Lindsey /// #artsci #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Today, H&M will release a special-edition leather handbag featuring the likeness of Jeff Koons’s Balloon Dog (Yellow) in some stores and on its website. To celebrate (and, really, further publicize) the occasion, Koons will decorate the six-story facade of the Swedish retailer’s Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York City with images of his iconic sculpture.

 

The most expensive living artist as of a November 2013 auction, Koons is routinely noted for his shrewd, and sometimes unusual, business practices. But the former Wall Street commodities broker also has a knack for science and technology.

 

In fact, his works are often so cutting edge that some of the world’s leading museums have found themselves ill-equipped to handle them. (Asked why the Guggenheim never went through with its 1996 plan for a major Koons exhibition, former director Lisa Dennison admitted to the New York Times that “finding the technology to match Jeff’s vision became impossible.”)

The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and MOTI in Breda jointly acquire 17 top items by digital artists

The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and MOTI in Breda jointly acquire 17 top items by digital artists | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and MOTI in Breda are jointly acquiring 17 top digital works by contemporary artists in the Netherlands and abroad who are among the pioneers of digital art. This collaboration is spurred by MOTI’s change of course: it is due to reopen in the course of 2017 as the Stedelijk Museum Breda, where the legacy of the city of Breda will have a more prominent role.

In the short space of time that it existed, and under the management of Mieke Gerritzen, MOTI – founded in 2011 – has managed to build a remarkable collection of digital works by leading artists. The joint acquisition with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam means investing in a national collection in the field of digital art. This merging of curatorial vision transcends local museum policy. The course taken by MOTI in the collection of digital art coheres perfectly with the policy of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, which is always geared to new forms of art with a particular interest in the cross-over between graphic design and visual arts.

ArtJaws - section collections art nouveaux médias // plateforme de vente d’œuvres d’art et d’éditions limitées

ArtJaws - section collections art nouveaux médias // plateforme de vente d’œuvres d’art et d’éditions limitées | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

De la réunion de deux entités, connues sous leur nom respectif – Art2M et Anne & Julien – est né ArtJaws, une plateforme de vente d’œuvres d’art et d’éditions limitées.


ArtJaws met en contact privilégié les acteurs de l’art (artistes, galeries, collectionneurs, amateurs). Pensée comme l’espace-outil d’exploration des champs contemporains de l’art numérique et de celui de l’outsider pop, ArtJaws souhaite s’engager pour des artistes peu ou sous représentés – notamment dans le paysage actuel du marché de l’art – afin d’étendre les ponts de leur rayonnement.


Son originalité est d’être le fruit d’une réflexion de même nature qu’un commissariat d’exposition grâce auquel on retrouve un présupposé, une identité claire, une force de proposition régulière – le commissariat faisant valeur d’expertise.
La réunion des deux entités est également synonyme d’innovation avec la proposition et le développement de nouvelles manières de produire « l’objet artistique », et d’étendre ainsi le territoire créatif des artistes. En faisant le pari d’être 100% connecté au présent grâce aux capacités numériques, ArtJaws invite le collectionneur confirmé ou en devenir à partager cette vision neuve et dynamique.


Pour un hacking vertueux des habitudes du marché de l’art, ArtJaws mord à pleines dents dans des normes et des catégories figées de la création contemporaine afin d’en repousser les frontières.

From selfies to virtual reality, how technology is changing the art world
/ by Marc Spiegler (Art Basel Director)

From selfies to virtual reality, how technology is changing the art world<br/>/ by Marc Spiegler (Art Basel Director) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Marc Spiegler, Global Director of Art Basel and CNN Style's latest guest editor on why we are experiencing a defining moment for digital art.

 

In 2002, a self-taught programmer named Cory Arcangel hacked the code of a Nintendo Super Mario cartridge, stripping away all the graphics except for the fluffy pixelized clouds.

 

Two years later, his artwork "Super Mario Clouds v2k3" made Arcangel one of the 2004 Whitney Biennial's breakthrough stars. Yet many of his new fans, Arcangel once told me, did not really understand what he had done: they thought they were watching a digital video, not hacked software.
 
A decade later, many people make the same misassumption about the young artist Ian Cheng's "infinite duration" work, in which his cinematic algorithms live-render richly detailed worlds filled with complex landscapes and animated creatures, "shot" with swooping cameras. Cheng uses radically better software, but it's the same disconnect...

The market for computer-created artwork is growing

The market for computer-created artwork is growing | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Is digital art the next big thing in the contemporary art world?


At the moment, the market for art that’s created and displayed on a screen — as distinct from paintings, prints and photos that are generated digitally and then printed — is small. Phillips’s inaugural “Paddles ON!” sale of 20 digital and digitally-related works in New York last October, held in association with the image-posting site Tumblr, was the first such event to be held at an international auction house. It raised just $90,600 — enough to buy a few square inches of a Christopher Wool painting. The top price of $16,000 went for “Asymmetric Love Number 2,” a chandelier made out of CCTV cameras, by the American “anti-disciplinarian” artist Addie Wagenknecht.
