CAA and NYFA are Showing Love for Artists
The 2011 Digital/Electronic Arts NYFA Fellows Exhibit at the New York Foundation for the Arts is a curious exhibition, not least because with all of its technological focus, some of its highlights are aimed at connecting with nature. I stopped by during this past weekend’s Dumbo Arts Festival, an event that seemed to be lacking on much new media art in comparison to previous years (aside from monolithic installations, with the “Codex Dynamic” projections on the Manhattan Bridge and “Superheros” by Wildbytes), so I was interested in what sort of snapshot this would offer of contemporary digital and electronic arts. The group show in the NYFA Dumbo office, a rather untraditional exhibition setting, features 17 artists who received 2011 Digital/Electronic Arts fellowships from the organization. The awards are their common ground, as the uses of technology in their work are incredibly diverse. I found among the fellows some artists to keep an eye on for their creative perspectives on how technology can be a bridge or receptor between their audience and their ideas.
LOS ANGELES — I hear it again and again in the art world. So many brilliant artists with great creative work, and yet so many of them tell me that they don’t have the first idea on how to start promoting their work and making sales. Enter The Profitable Artist.
