Daata Editions Season One Launch
Lucy Chinen

Daata Editions is a platform for collecting artists’ video, sound and web based artwork. Dedicated to supporting artwork online, Daata Editions commissions works available in editions for purchase and exhibition, while maintaining public access for research.

For the first phase, Daata Editions has commissioned 18 artists each to create six new video, sound or web based works. Each work is available for purchase in an edition of 15. Collectors are able to acquire editions of the works through the platform, where custom certificates of authenticity are provided. The percentage absorbed by Daata Editions upon purchase is used to host another phase of commissions. In addition to the editions for purchase, artists keep two editions of each work, two editions are donated to arts institutions for exhibition, and one is kept for the Daata Editions archive for continued public access.

Artists included in the first phase of commissions: Ilit Azoulay, Helen Benigson, David Blandy, Matt Copson, Ed Fornieles, Leo Gabin, Daniel Keller, Lina Lapelyte, Rachel Maclean, Florian Meisenberg, Takeshi Murata, Hannah Perry, Jon Rafman, Charles Richardson, Amalia Ulman, Stephen Vitiello, Chloe Wise.

Daata Editions aims to serve the artists working in mediums for online distribution, while supporting further production by creating a market for the medium. Amongst the plethora of galleries, art fairs and institutional entities, Daata believes in the need for a multitude of models for art distribution online. The intention of the Daata Editions project is to be artist focussed, encouraging the creation, exhibition and collecting of artwork online.

Daata Editions is led by curator David Gryn. The platform has been built in collaboration with design agency Studio Scasascia.
