Our first project Now. Here. This. is set to launch on July 1, 2011.
Now. Here. This. is a curatorial endeavor which collects artists’ responses to their physical locations and seeks to reconcile various experiences of “place.” Artistic practice is an extension of daily life, knowledge and resources–whether an artist’s habitat is a choice, a natural path, forced, or born out of necessity.
The project arises from our desire to mine our local communities for intelligent, provocative, mindful work that best reflects our sensibilities as artists and curators–and to share it with each other and the public to promote visual and collaborative relationships and conversations. The bulk of the exhibition will be online, expanding the idea of location further to allow the work of global artists to reside in one place. Each month a new group of artists will present a dialog with the physical place where they live and work. Eventually the project will also have physical components as we expand into publications and gallery exhibitions.
