Shameless Self-Promotion Tuesday (For You I Mean)

OK, so this is a test. Whether it gets repeated or not will be determined by how successful it is, so I'll ask folks to keep in mind that in this instance following the guidelines is in everyone's best interest. A number of folks have recently used other threads to make plugs for their own blogs or arts-related services and such (one I recently deleted because it appeared in a thread on politics [without offering anything at all about politics]). In general I have no compunction about deleting comments that are off topic, I should note. I offer a number of open threads and feel anyone who wants to share something random can do so there.

But now that the strict disciplinarian in me has gotten that out of way, let the freedom-loving libertarian in me take over and ask: what you selling/marketing these days? What upcoming exhibitions are you in? Any open studios coming up? Have you launched a new blog about your art, your gallery, your consultancy, your museum? Have you got a new art book about to launch? Are you trying to get some art-related start-up Internet venture off the ground? Tell us about it. Seriously...don't be shy.

The only (aforementioned) guidelines are that
  1. Please only art related things (that's broad in my book, but ads for your nail salon will [most likely] be deleted).
  2. If possible, please include a link for more information.
  3. Please limit each comment to about 200 words (that's a lot) and don't simply start another comment to drop in your entire 1000 word press release over the course of several comments (I'm on to you). In other words take this opportunity to practice the sort of brevity that fosters the soul of wit.
  4. Please use this thread for telling us about it and limit comments in other threads to the topic at hand (unless, of course, the thread is an "open thread")
OK, so the disciplinarian snuck back in there but he's done now, so...with the art season about to roar back to life, what should folks not miss?

Shameless self promotion, How do I love thee?

If you are in Australia's national capital in September you will kick yourself if you miss Altered States II at the Australian National University. An exhibition of 14 Limited Edition Photographs presented as archival inkjet prints on canvas that present the Philippines as seen through Australian eyes.

Shopping, religion and "Da Province" are 3 constant themes that sustain life in these islands and contrast markedly with many Aussie perceptions whilst paradoxically supporting others.

MTAA’s Super Slow 5K!
a leisurely 5K (3.11 mile) group performance around McCarren Park’s running track

I’ve read on marathon training web sites, that one can walk 5 kilometers (3.11 miles) at an “easy pace” in 62.5 minutes. I’d like to slow that down a tad. I’d like to slow it down with a group of like-minded noncompetitive “athletes”. I want to race with people who are ready to say - “I’ll finish this 5K when I darn well feel like it and only after I stop by the official MTAA Super Slow 5K refreshment stand for another hotdog”. That’s the race I want to run.

The MTAA Super Slow 5K is a one day race/group performance on the running track in Brooklyn’s McCarren Park. Registration to the SS5K is free and open to the public. It begins at 11AM and ends when it seems right or 4PM, whichever comes first. Refreshments will be served, folding chairs and blankets will be utilized.

Sunday September 16th, 2007 from 11AM - 4PM (rain or shine)

Williamsburg Brooklyn’s McCarren Park

Email superslow5K@gmail.com or just show up around 10:30AM the day of.

More details at: http://mtaa.net/art/slow/.

The SS5K is part of Conflux 07 http://www.confluxfestival.org

I have a show of ink drawings/paintings and sculpture opening on 9/13 at H&F; Fine Arts, near DC and have images of several of the works that will be in the show on my blog (click on my name to go there). I like to set up situations where the materials are inextricably linked with content – for instance, in an ink painting of an abstract landscape, the repeated application of ink forces the drying paper to buckle tectonically.
Also, check out the wonderful new show Leaded:the Materiality and Metamorphosis of Graphite, curated by N. Elizabeth Schlatter, at University of Richmond Museums. http://museums.richmond.edu/hmaexhibitions/leaded.html

By the way, here's how you can add links to your comments.

Below is some html that you can copy and paste and then just change the two variable parts.

Replace the URL (http://www.xxxxxxxxxxx.com/xxxxx) with the link in this code and replace "Here's the text of my link" with whatever words you want to be underlined and clickable:
<a href="http://www.xxxxxxxxx.com/xxxxxxx">Here's the text of my link</a>

Leave the quotation marks and other bits where they are. And always preview to ensure it looks the way you want it to. ;-)

If that's too much info for this early in the morning, then just add the link the regular way...folks can cut and paste it into their browsers.

Fiona, not only did the link work, but the show looks awesome. I love graphite. (On my online gallery, I put up some graphite work recently, and I was torn over whether to list the media (in my database, where it's not really visible anyway (yet)) as "graphite" or "pencil." I decided on pencil, because graphite sounds too pretentious for what I do with it.)

I just love the way pencil looks on paper. I love really soft pencils, too. I recently bought a woodless 9B and it's great. Plus, it's not scratchy like charcoal. Charcoal against paper sets my teeth on edge.

Being a child, being a lover, being a mother, being white, being an artist.

Art can hold the subtleties, contradictions, and impermanence of our identity, reflect both the weight and lightness of who we are in the world at large.

My video projects simultaneously look at separation and intimacy, estrangement and closeness, loss and renewal, oppression and emancipation. They hover in the in-between, in the neither/nor, in the tension of coexisting opposites.

In recent installations, I have drawn on and combined documentary footage and dialogue, performance and text. For example: a French lover’s dialogue in translation, a nanny and child hand-in-hand, a field of tree stumps.

Hey Bert...thanks for the head's up. Thanks to all!

I'm gonna delete those deleted comments in a moment.

Off topic (hey, it's sort of an open thread)...I wanted to explain the "hmmm...HMMMM..." response I had made to the news that Hirst's skull had sold to an "investment group" last week. As I suspected, Hirst is actually part of said investment group. Via Artinfo.com:

Damien Hirst is part of the investment group that is buying his diamond-studded skull, For the Love of God, for $100 million, Bloomberg reports. The group plans to resell the work later, according to White Cube Gallery. "Hirst is keeping a stake in the skull,'' gallery spokeswoman Sara Macdonald said. ``It is the intention of the investment group to resell the sculpture at some stage in the future, but I cannot provide a time scale for this or estimate the value that the work will be sold for.''

Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you, but the timing and such did tell me this was very likely the case.

Yes, hhhhhmmmm.... .

Hirst is double smart; he controls the copyrights, reproduction and merchandizing and now he is a part investor, owner and creator of something he can milk and milk 4 ever. He is "renting" the skull and is only going to increase in value and be tax deductible.

My personal blog, Gallery Hopper is strictly for photography and postings are completely at the whim of my own preferences and available time to write/pontificate. However, I do get a lot of email about shows I personally am not necessarily interested in or are off-topic for Gallery Hopper. So I've created a new site called Gallery Wire, not really a blog per se, where I can post all these other things that come my way. At this point, it's mainly just press release material, but covers all of the US, not just NYC. Just in time for the new Fall season.

I'm also in a show called 50/50, curated by Sue Berg and Daniel Buttrey: The mission of this exhibition is to demonstrate Lev Manovich’s four characteristics of the new media object. It is a teaching tool as well as entertainment and an exhibition. It is rather like a science experiment where as many variables are controlled as possible.
After the artist is introduced, the results become unpredictable. This process will be revealed as artwork. The form is uniform, the
content is multi-formed.

50/50 will travel between Artwell Gallery in Torrington, Connecticut, and the three ArtSpace galleries in Windham, Norwich and Hartford, Connecticut.

Sabine Dehnel/Elsewhere
Project Room: Cynthia Greig/ Representations
Richard Levy Gallery, Albuquerque NM

September 7 – October12, 2007

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present a selection of photographs by German artist, Sabine Dehnel and American artist, Cynthia Greig. Dehnel’s images are a bright marriage of the concepts of painting and photography. Working in the German, photographic tradition conferring new importance on production as well as reception, she experiments with how viewers experience a work of art. In the project room we are exhibiting color photographs from Cynthia Greig’s series Representations, which combines photography and drawing, and investigates the truth value many assign to photographs to probe the illusory nature of representation with humor and irony.

Thanks, Ed!

I'm half of a two-person show (Aaron Kreiswirth is the other half ) at PS122 Gallery. The show runs October 4 - November 13, Thursdays through Sundays 12-6pm. The reception is 5-7pm on Saturday October 4th.

My side of the show consists of photographs mined from flickr.com using facial recognition software (and short stories by Benjamin Rosenbaum that were inspired by the images), as well as an interactive, facial-recognition sculpture.

Postcards for the show can be viewed here (with my image) and here (with Aaron's image).

It's unfortunate that I didn't see this post until such a late hour.

Check out Art Babel. We are an artist community forum/blog with the goal of progressing discussion in the arts- between artists.(Yes I have a bias towards figurative art, but please put me in my place!)

Interesting opportunity you offer.

I found your blog from the article Ana Finel Honigman mentioned it in,
and I saw the post you made in reference to it. A bit of shameless
self-promoting on your part? But here's why it's interesting, She had
unbeknownst to me written a short review of my Saatchi Online Artist's
page (although it was called Your Gallery when she wrote it) I will
commence shameless self-promotion now:
The review:
conveniently has a link to the page she refers to and that page conveniently has a link to my own personal web page)
but I digress, When I read her review I liked her writing style, she shows a feel for the work, so I
searched the web to see if it was just a fluke, I possibly having been swayed
by flattery, and found her Guardian online page and read what else she
wrote, and have decided she does indeed have talent. and that's when I
found your blog, If you have since your post found a way to communicate
with her please pass along what ever positive sentiment proper protocol allows
an artist to express to a critic.
[WARNING! 200 word limit about to be breached!: (reading beyond this
limit not officially sanction by the rules the strict disciplinarian in
Ed has ascribed.)]

but I just wanted to add one more thing, I see you are
kicking off the season with an installation by an MFA program alumni
of mine so I just might drop by.

out of curiosity does anyone know how the financing of "For the Love of God" will work? Does Damien Hirst receive any money or is his share invested back into it?

Thanks Ed!

What a generous smart or considered idea, what a good offer Edward... and some interesting links and goings on.
Mark, I've always been a fan of your work. I'm sure many have your page bookmarked.
Chris Ashley is the html stand alone. You should book there.
I hope many more post their shows or portfolios, wherever they may be. You know...

And Chris Rywalt, after his summer camp...

Thanks for this opportunity, Edward.

Over the summer I did a podcast in which I interviewed people, including Nancy Baker, Jen Bekman, Richard Polsky, Andrei Codrescu, Charlie Finch and others, all about art. Everything is archived in mp3 files here:

By popular demand my show at Newhouse Gallery for Contemporary Art at Snug Harbor in good ol' Staten Island got extended to Sept 23rd. By POPULAR DEMAND. The people demand it! And who are we to not give it to 'em.

It's a greatest hits show for me. Work from the past four years or so. Oh, they're big ink drawings on paper by the way - check out my site as well!

So get your butt on the ferry (they serve beer, you know) and check out a great show at a truly unique New York location.

D.U.M.B.O. Under the Bridge Festival & Open Studios
Brooklyn NYC
September 28 29 30th
This event is fun and popular. There is more to see and do than you'll have time for. Special art installations, open studios, and more. Go to http://www.dumboartscenter.org for details. I also recommend starting your visit at the DUMBO Arts Center to find out what's going on. My studio will be open along with many others. There will be unaffiliated events happening at the same time. If you need something to do and you can get to Brooklyn this is it.

Thanks for the free plug Edward.

George B.: I just about grew up in Snug Harbor. I lived just a few blocks away until I was 17 and left for college. My parents have only been gone for there for three years.

Your work looks great. I assume you know John Noble's work? I'm looking at one of his lithographs right now.

Does anyone care about the art scene in Atlanta? Did anyone even know Atlanta had an art scene? Well it does, and the annual Atlanta Celebrates Photography festival is starting this week. I'm not involved with ACP, but I feel it's worth promoting.

However, I am involved with the group blog Photo Awesome. We have an archive of video covering the Atlanta art scene for most of 2007, and now, we've just started an audio podcast, which should be propagating through the iTunes Music Store as we speak.

Thanks Ed, what a generous proposal.

I am a New Zealand based photographer

I also work with an organisation called PhotoForum New Zealand. A non-profit society dedicated to the promotion of photography as a means of communication and expression. We've just (literally) started a blog for and about NZ photographers... as well as a bit of international photography, because it's the internet and it'd be silly to be ignoring all that wonderful stuff outside our own fair shores.

Thanks again Ed.

Wow, so great to see how busy everyone is! I am a bit late here, but I'll throw my info in anyway.

I will be in the aforementioned Blogger Shows in NYC and in Pittsburgh. I will have 6 paintings in a group show at Twinhouse Gallery in Atlanta, opening October 5. I am also gearing up for two solo shows, one in Pittsburgh in November and one in Williamstown, MA in January. Visit my blog where I talk about all of this ad nauseum:)

1. Thank you, Ed, for this opportunity.
2. I love your blog.
3. I'm into lists lately.
4. I have a new website with my encaustic paintings on it. www.pamelafarrell.com
5. I have new blog with stuff about art (mostly). http://pfarrellartblog.blogspot.com/
6. Sometime in October, I will be holding an open studio; details will be posted on my blog.
7. If anyone is planning a visit to MOMA, consider seeing "Lines, Grids, Stains, Words" (through October 22)It's a show of "drawings from the 1960s to the present that conflate the simple and seemingly impersonal formal and compositional vocabularies of Minimal art with references to the physical and the bodily".
8. I'm sorry I couldn't do the html thing.
