The Gallery of Lost Art

Description from DesignBoom:

curated by tate and developed by UK creative studio ISO, ‘the gallery of lost art’ is a year-long online exhibition of artworks that have disappeared for reasons of thef, arson, rejection, discarding, or the temporary nature of the project itself, among other reasons. ‘art history tends to be the history of what has survived,’ reflects the gallery’s curator jennifer mundy, ‘but loss has shaped our sense of art’s history in ways that we are often not aware of.’

the website is visually structured as an open warehouse floor, viewed from above, with different chalk headers on the ground delineating the subject of that area of the gallery: destroyed, stolen, discarded, rejected, erased, or ephemeral. users can zoom into particular areas, and by clicking on specific projects they can access essays, photos, film footage or interviews, and other material about the artwork. the circumstances behind the loss of the piece are also documented.

initially opened with the works of 20 renowned artists— among them frida kahlo, marcel duchamp, and tracey emin— the ‘gallery of lost art’ is expected to more than double its exhibition pieces by the end of 2012, adding one new work each week for six months. six months after it is complete, the website itself will disappear like the pieces that it had preserved.

Very cool.

I am an alien.

Come see me perform next Tuesday, you’ll enjoy it. 
And submit an alien self portrait to get a free print when you get there.
And follow the Choreographer.  He’s pretty rad.

About 6 months ago, me and some friends from Uni (London Contemporary Dance School) decided to start up a magazine - I am the editor, and I also write a lot of it.  Today I had the lovely task of printing, folding and stapling,  but I also published it online - so if you fancy a read, here it is.

I was at Dance’s Question Time this Saturday, at the Riflemaker Gallery in Soho, London.  

It was an interesting, but largely meaningless discussion - as always, it raised many questions and didn’t really give any answers.  Worth a read or watch though, if you’re interested in dance or art.  Arlene Phillips was there, in all her overstated annoying glory.

Also, you can just about see me in that photo, in the white tshirt, through the window.  Jus sayin.

Some of these are pretty great.  Makes me laugh that the question everyone keeps asking about these posters, and everything else for that matter, is “Is it art?”, and not “Is it good art?”

Bragging but I don’t care

I got 82% for my second year essay on Santiago Sierra.

So I can write… Do I use these powers for good or evil? …
