Daata and Vanity Projects are delighted to announce their collaborative partnership. We have launched a program from the Daata catalogue taking place over the next year, starting with Scott Reeder's recent commissioned works for Daata launched at Art LA Contemporary 2017.
Vanity Projects is beyond a traditional gallery space. While providing a bespoke nail experience, they offer video art programming aimed at changing the way people perceive and experience the video medium.
Directed by Rita de Alencar Pinto, the program includes collaborations with international curators and artists. In March 2017, Vanity Projects partnered with online art platform Daata Editions. Daata Editions commission’s artist video, sound, poetry and web. This new, logical and innovative way to collect art is designed as a native platform to a new generation of artists who work with moving image and sound. All artworks are available to purchase at https://daata-editions.com/
Vanity Projects is committed to presenting contemporary video art and this partnership galvanizes their ethos of developing new and innovative platforms to present the medium. Starting March 25th, 2017, Vanity Projects New York and Miami will run concurrent programs featuring artists in the Daata catalogue. With both solo and group presentations the content spans a wide area of interests and artists point of view.

Space Bar & Gallery, Folkestone 13/14 March 2017
FREE continuous screening all day 11-5pm presented by David Gryn, DIrector of Daata Editions.
A Goth Life — is a selection of artist works that compiled together make a composite tale of our joyously souless, self-reflective, insular, tension and angst ridden times. The use of the internet is our guide, confidente, entertainment, mirror, window, general outlet and has created a real alternative social reality, with artists commentating on and providing a contemporary anthropology for this coming of age.
A Goth Life is a compilation from artwork editions on Daata Editions.
Artists: Larry Achiampong, Thora Dolven Balke, David Blandy, Jake Chapman, Jacky Connolly, Keren Cytter, Casey Jane Ellison, Tracey Emin, Ed Fornieles, Leo Gabin, Yung Jake, Rachel Maclean, Jillian Mayer, Takeshi Murata, Rashaad Newsome, Tameka Norris, Hannah Perry, Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, Scott Reeder, Jacolby Satterwhite, Zadie Xa.
Strangelove: From March 9th-24th is a sixteen day celebration of artists video, film, performance and sound, Strangelove Time Based Media Festival takes over the streets and spaces of Folkestone. With a packed programme of live events, screenings, exhibitions, workshops and talks, the Strangelove Festival brings together the diversity and talent of over 125 international, UK and local artists. Video works from artists that include Mark Wallinger, Richard Wilson and Tracey Emin.
This innovative festival merges live events, screenings and exhibitions at Strange Cargo and the Sassoon Gallery with some unexpected takeovers popping up throughout the programme.
Festival highlights include Secret Strangelove programme of encounters and performances, artists including Lucky Bert will activate unusual spaces around Folkestone and a special free screening of Kubrick’s Dr Strangelove will take place at the Silver Screen. A special project by BAFTA nominated screenwriter and director Tony Grisoni, whose film credits include Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the acclaimed TV serial Red Riding.
Strangelove is designed to be empowering to time based artist mediums, artists, students, audiences, the local community and beyond. Its aim is to add to the chemistry, voices and dynamic of what can happen in a locality and wider arts community. Strangelove is not wholly rooted in Folkestone, with future plans worldwide. It launched as a new cohesive and student galvanising project for Central Saint Martins in London in 2015 to bring the various departments, disciplines and threads of a large art school together via the power of moving image. The project in Folkestone is designed to create an output for current and future artists and bring this together with renowned international art world artists and curators.
ARS17+ offers a fresh take on contemporary art
The international ARS17 exhibition will open in one month, but the accompanying ARS17+ Online Art site opens today! Accessible at arsplus.fi, it features a selection of topical works of online art by 16 artists. It also includes the online components of some of the artworks in the exhibition.
Today an increasing amount of art is created to be used online or as mobile applications. In the same vein, ARS17+ will make art accessible beyond the walls of the museum, to be enjoyed anywhere, anytime. Many contemporary artists use the internet and social media in creative ways in their art. For them, the internet is often a part of their identity, an inseparable part of everyday life and reality, and a way to communicate and express themselves.
ARS17+ Online Art complements the theme of the ARS17 exhibition, “digital revolution.” Some of these online works will remain in the collections of Kiasma and the Finnish National Gallery.
ARS17+ features work by the following artists: David Blandy (1976, UK), Ed Fornieles (1976, UK), Juha van Ingen (1963, Finland), Rachel Maclean (1987, UK), Florian Meisenberg (1980, Germany), Reija Meriläinen (1987, Finland), Pink Twins: Juha Vehviläinen (1978, Finland) & Vesa Vehviläinen (1974, Finland), Angelo Plessas (1974, Greece), Jon Rafman (1981, Canada), Tuomo Rainio (1983, Finland), Charles Richardson (1979, UK), Jarkko Räsänen (1984, Finland), Axel Straschnoy (1978, Argentina), Jenna Sutela (1983, Finland) and Amalia Ulman (1989, Argentina).
ARS17 Hello World! will open in Kiasma on 31 March 2017. The theme of the exhibition is the global digital revolution, the impact of which is evident in culture and in the economy, as well as in human identity and behaviour. One of the themes of the exhibition is the artistic response to this ubiquitous transformation.
The ARS exhibitions are a series of major shows of international contemporary art that have been organised in Finland since 1961.
The ARS17 curator team is led by Director Leevi Haapala.
ARS17+ Online Art is produced under the direction of Chief Curator Arja Miller along with curators Eija Aarnio and Milja Liimatainen. The commissioned works by Angelo Plessas and Jenna Sutela were curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini, a London-based curator who specialises in online art.
ARS17+ Online Art is at www.arsplus.fi

Jacky Connolly, Anhedonia, 2017, a Daata Editions Commission.
In Anhedonia (2017), a machinima film in six parts, Jacky Connolly turns her filmmaking practice towards a mysterious group home in the virtual American South. Several avatars live in three small buildings near the town's railroad yard, where their lives are punctuated by hours spent in front of a screen. Images from elsewhere begin to intrude with mounting intensity, as the boundaries of the film are fractured by the characters’ visual and auditory hallucinations. These moments of psychosis give insight into the characters’ shared histories, as well as the dissociative atmosphere of their cultural landscape.
Jacky Connolly (b. 1990, Lower Hudson Valley, USA) is an artist and filmmaker based in New York. Connolly's film works are indebted to cinematic and literary genre influences, as well as an innovative use of machinima technique for imaginative world-making and storytelling. She recently completed Hudson Valley Ruins (2016), a 30-minute machinima film created in a life simulation computer game.
Jacky Connolly’s commissioned artworks for Daata can be viewed and acquired online. There are 6 works available in chapters: 1. Anhedonia, 2. Anemia, 3. Alexithymia, 4. Amygdala, 5. Anorexia, 6. Amnesia, each in an edition of 26, of which 20 are for sale. An additional composite feature version (screened daily at NADA) is available for art Institutional acquisition and international film screenings. http://daata-editions.com
Chrissie Iles will be in conversation with Jacky Connolly on Saturday March 4 at 3pm in the NADA New York Auditorium Space, introduced by David Gryn of Daata Editions. Chrissie Iles is the Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and her recent curatorial exhibition was "Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016”. http://whitney.org/
The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is the definitive non-profit arts organization dedicated to the cultivation, support, and advancement of new voices in contemporary art. Daata Editions is collaborating with NADA New York 2017 as a Cultural Partner. https://www.newartdealers.org/

VIirtually Me curated by Tiffany Zabludowicz
Vanity Projects: 99 Chrystie St, New York & 7338 NW Miami Court Unit 2, Miami
Nov 9 - Dec 3 2016
Today we are defined not by who we are, but rather by what we post online. Is your virtual self interesting, funny, pretty, smart, sexy, or branded? How many followers and likes do you have on Tinder, Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube? Each virtual decision becomes more real than your reality. Artists are in much the same situation. Each work an artist makes becomes a part of their personal definition. But what happens when artists engage with social media and begin to disrupt a digital representation of themselves as part of their practices?
These video works have been selected from DAATA editions, a commissioning platform for artists’ video, sound, poetry, and web. The website (daata-editions.com) serves first as an online exhibition space. Videos from DAATA are reposted to social media platforms, reblogged, and disseminated throughout the internet. The artworks on the website consequently get mixed into the artists’ pre-existing online platforms and repertoire. The two become interlinked. Artists infuse their works on DAATA with familiar online tropes and create virtual versions of themselves or compile virtual versions of others, thus blurring the distinction between the real self, the artistic self, and the virtual self. (Text: Tiffany Zabludowicz)

David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions has curated his 6th Edition of Film for Art Basel in Miami Beach. Screening at both the Miami Beach Convention Center Film Library and on the 7,000 square-foot outdoor projection wall at Soundscape Park, New World Symphony Center.
Division Gallery (Canada) and Galerie Sébastien Bertrand (Switzerland) present the first monograph by Chloe Wise. Featuring 138 full-color plates of artworks and additional colored photos chosen by the artist, Chloe Wise presents a thorough overview of the young artist's exuberant early career.
The monograph is framed by curator Jeffrey Deitch's essay, Concrete Comedy, contextualizing Wise amongst Pop Art, her peers, and incipient technologies. Loreta Lamargese's essay Wanting, wanting, and wavering looks to how Wise's work encapsulates queer pleasure under neoliberal politics, while Eric Wareheim's conversation with Wise, his oft-collaborator, is ripe with an off-kilter brand of humor. The book is complete with an original artwork-cum-dust jacket, a concentric slippage of the artist into her first literary foray.
Artie Vierkant's works are featured in Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016, an exhibition which focuses on the ways in which artists have dismantled and reassembled the conventions of cinema—screen, projection, darkness—to create new experiences of the moving image.
Dreamlands spans more than a century of works by American artists and filmmakers, and also includes a small number of works of German cinema and art from the 1920s with a strong relationship to, and influence on, American art and film. Featured are works in installation, drawing, 3-D environments, sculpture, performance, painting, and online space, by Trisha Baga, Ivana Bašić, Frances Bodomo, Dora Budor, Ian Cheng, Bruce Conner, Ben Coonley, Joseph Cornell, Andrea Crespo, François Curlet, Alex Da Corte, Oskar Fischinger, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Pierre Huyghe, Alex Israel, Mehdi Belhaj Kacem and Pierre Joseph, Aidan Koch, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Anthony McCall, Josiah McElheny, Syd Mead, Lorna Mills, Jayson Musson, Melik Ohanian, Philippe Parreno, Jenny Perlin, Mathias Poledna, Edwin S.

To unpack some of the ideas behind Daata Editions x Artspace commission by Keren Cytter 'Terrorist of Love', Artspace's Loney Abrams sat down with Cytter to discuss the multilayered work. Read about the artist's self-imposed rules of production, addiction to Instagram, and unfulfilled desire to make her audience feel sad.
Emily Steer of Elephant Magazine speaks to David Gryn, Daata Editions Director, on Daata's latest releases and its place in an art world that is finally coming round to the digital.
'We set up Daata to be a platform to service artists who work with digital mediums and inherently the mediums will evolve and develop, but the internet is a rather established outlet so we see it as a hyper-normal method for display and distribution and are interested in propagating this. We are not really able to predict what future developments will sweep us all off our feet, but we believe we are perfectly placed to adapt and engage with whatever comes next'.

Saya Woolfalk's artworks release coincides with the launch of a custom-made wallpaper for WeTransfer, created by the artist from her Color Mixing Machine works and presented by Daata Editions and POSTmatter. The launch is part of POSTmatter's ongoing collaboration with WeTransfer, exploring the creatives who push the boundaries between digital and physical space.
As part of this collaboration, POSTmatter presents an interview with Saya Woolfalk, focusing on the artist's practice, which spans from performance to digital practices, and the Emphatics, her fictional future female species.
The Color Mixing Machine series will run on POSTmatter from September 29.
WENTRUP Gallery presents Florian Meisenberg's third solo show with the gallery „Um, nice guy, good hospitality, but.. y'know.. I-I- I don‘t think he knows how to turn on a computer. (brief pause) So... but th-the good thing is he's filling the void.. uh, with coverage in XXXXXXXXXX at the moment so y'know they're-they're not drowning.“, including new works on canvas, in film, and a site specific installation of several projections generated by a specifically written software program.
Meisenberg's new series of canvases show motifs that have evolved continuously in his work: the grid, periodic broken lines, which appear as optical guides or cones of light, and the white color bars as limitations of picture within picture. These canvases are set against a half-hour, single channel video that uses documentary-like material of the activity at a tennis court. In long close-up shots the uniformity of the white clothing stands out against the brittle green lawn, as do the movements of the protagonists, who move unusually slow. The two-channel projection is a continuously renewed digital handwriting, generated by a program that Meisenberg developed together with NY based programmer Tommy Martinez, using an algorithm which utilizes text files directly from the from the WikiLeaks website. The handwriting forms an Arabesque of white lines, which condenses as semantic information that reveals confidential material like personal emails from Hillary Clinton.

To coincide with the opening of the 73rd Venice International Film Festival, Daata Editions and Zuecca Project Space collaboratively present Oh the Humanity, an exhibition of video works by Daniel Keller & Martti Kalliala, Takeshi Murata, Jon Rafman, opening at the Hotel Excelsior on Wednesday 31 August 2016, 6 - 9pm.
The exhibition opens a dimensional window from the world of cinematography and the recreation of reality, to the a realm of digital and virtual media, where the suspension of disbelief is heightened and the connection to the "now" all the more vibrant. The project aims to re-contextualize video and digital artwork by breaking out from the white-cube and into the "real-world". Daata Editions' mission of creating/commissioning "democratic" art pieces, is fulfilled by confronting the general public with the work that in turn is assimilated into the environment and becomes part of a new concept of exhibiting.

'For an artwork to reflect the musings of its creators, it should ideally be able to naturally adapt. While a ‘physical’ piece of art may be moved or displaced, its very form cannot. The intellectually satisfying aspect of enjoying a painting for example, will come from discovering (or rediscovering) a detail we have missed or overlooked. A brush stroke or a shaft of sunlight can add new meaning to a well-loved piece, without altering it per sae. Since the dawn of the Internet in the 1980s, artists have exploited the laws of this parallel world to create events, images, or to subvert the way we visually absorb information'
We are delighted to announce that Jonathan Monaghan @jonmonaghan is taking over the @daataeditions Instagram account until July 3, as part of Daata Editions Artists Instagram Residencies.
Jonathan Monaghan (b. 1986, New York) creates prints, sculptures and video installations that challenge the boundaries between the real, the imagined, and virtual. Pulling from wide-ranging sources such as science fiction and baroque architecture, he creates bizarre, yet compelling, narratives and imagery with the same high-end technology used by Hollywood and video games. Jonathan received his BFA from the New York Institute of Technology in 2008 and his MFA from the University of Maryland in 2011. Jonathan Monaghan is represented by bitforms gallery.
Katie Torn participates in 'VURT' exhibition at Young Projects Gallery, LA.
Named after Jeff Noon’s hallucinatory vision of the future, VURT, features the work of 8 contemporary artists who are engaging with various forms of virtual space, digital objects and the imaginary.
Through her practice Katie Torn integrates 3D computer graphics and video to model virtually simulated scenes out of the detritus of internet and consumer culture. Collecting discarded products and elements available online, Torn’s digital assemblages carry traces of pastconsumer eras and web browsing histories. Katie's commission for Daata Editions, @RealSelfCindy, will be part of the exhibition.

Lehmann Maupin and White Cube present 'I Cried Because I Love You', an exhibition by Tracey Emin, CBE. This joint exhibition takes place across both gallery spaces in Hong Kong and marks Emin’s first solo presentation in Greater China.
For this major project, Emin has envisaged a continuous exhibition of painting, embroidery, and neon across two spaces that reflects the diversity of her practice. A narrative running through the exhibition focuses on a large stone located in an olive grove just outside Emin’s studio in the South of France.
Studio Museum Harlem presents 'Rashaad Newsome: THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO SEE', an exhibition featuring Rashaad Newsome’s work about the dance form known as Vogue.
For over a decade, Newsome has worked with members of the Vogue community, which developed in New York City’s queer ballroom scene of the 1970s. With a particular interest in critiquing the popular appropriation of Vogue in the early 1990s, and with the aim to bring these queer communities of color from the Vogue scene into the institutional space, Newsome created work that reframes how performers are represented, and highlights their enormous talent for style and bodily movement. Featuring video and collage works made between 2008 to 2014, THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO SEE explores the beauty, agency and complexities of Vogue and performance art.
De Buck Gallery presents 'Stop Playing in My Face!' by Rashaad Newsome, including collages which evolve from abstracted Baroque-esque designs that incorporate symbols of these subcultures to personified figurative subjects with clearly recognizable human faces and bodies. Compositionally, these works are still heavily influenced by Newsome’s interest in the rules of heraldry and the use of contemporary pop cultural status symbols.
Congratulations to Rachel Maclean for being selected by Arts Council Scotland to represent Scotland at the 2017 Venice Biennial with a film work!
Maclean’s videos and photos are often exhibited alongside props, costumes, sculpture and painting. The scenes she depicts slip between history and imagined futures, creating artificially saturated visions that are both nauseatingly positive and cheerfully grotesque. Within her videos, Maclean merges the visual aesthetics of The Dollar Store, Youtube, Manga, Hieronymus Bosch and High Renaissance painting with MTV style editing techniques.
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Daata Editions app for iPhone & iPad! You can now manage your collection, play and download artworks to your device, create playlists and read the latest news related to our artists and activities.

We are delighted to announce that Rachel Maclean is taking over the @daataeditions Instagram Account until February 18, as part of Daata Editions Artists Instagram Residencies.
Rachel Maclean's work has been included in Electronic Superhighway at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, an exhibition which brings together over 100 works on the impact of computer and Internet technologies on artists from the mid-1960s to the present day and at the British Art Show, a touring exhibition focusing on contemporary UK artists, currently on view in Edinburgh, UK.
The problem with the relative newness of media like video, digital and internet art is that unlike a canvas or a sculpture, people can struggle with the ideas of how to show, sell and “own” them. In a culture where film, gifs and other forms of creative work are available online, everywhere, to many people the idea of what is and isn’t art, and how you own it, is confusing. While everyone accepts that video art and digital art are still valid and important media; there are few organisations making the leap into viewing them in the commercial art world in the same way we would more traditional formats.
Digital art platform Daata Editions is changing all that, having launched last year as a space to champion a curated selection of commissioned pieces by artists working in digital, sound, moving image and internet art.
We are delighted to announce the full artist list for Daata Editions Season Two.
Daata Editions has commissioned 42 artists, creating 157 artworks, scheduled for release throughout the year.

David Gryn will join a panel discussion on 'How is the Internet redefining the value of art' with David Goodman, Sotheby’s Head of Digital. Other speakers in the conference include Parker Ito, Marina Abramovic, Marc Spiegler and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
We are delighted to announce that Stephen Vitiello is taking over the @daataeditions Instagram account until March 16, as part of Daata Editions Artists Instagram Residencies.
Stephen's residency has been scheduled to coincide with his concert tour with musician/composer Neil Leonard in New England. Their collaboration is based on the use of random computer processing to arrange environmental field recordings and instrumental recordings into a unified sound world. For this performance, everyday objects such as sticks, strings, and rocks will intertwine with saxophone and a modular synthesizer in a quadraphonic mix.
Daata Editions Director, David Gryn, spoke with Ian Epstein of Artsy during the art fair week in New York on acquiring art online.
'We’re talking about real art: The file is real, the purchase is real, the viewing of it is real. No one ever questions if they’ve bought a wonderful piece of music by Philip Glass on iTunes—they’ve just bought the music'.
Daata Editions Director, David Gryn, spoke to FAD magazine during the art fair week in New York on Daata Editions and buying art online.
'The logic of Daata is as easy and simple and obvious as buying and downloading music online, but keeping it very clear that you are buying an artwork, with the artist remaining at the centre of the process'.
For his first solo exhibition in Germany, Charles Richardson has created a new work specifically for the Agnes Maybach gallery space. The installation, entitled 2nd Place / 2. Platz sees Richardson develop his preoccupations with deconstructing masculine affect, which he established in his most recent commissions for the Zabludowicz Collection and Daata Editions (both 2015).
2nd Place / 2. Platz will be presented exclusively at the Agnes Maybach gallery throughout March 2016, running parallel to Richardson’s first major public solo presentation, entitled Displacement Behaviour, at the Exeter Phoenix gallery in the United Kingdom.
March 3 - April 3, 2016
Matt Copson participates in 'The Green Ray' exhibition, curated by Andrew Hunt at Wilkinson, London.
‘The Green Ray’ takes its starting point from French new wave director Eric Rohmer’s 1986 film Le Rayon vert (The Green Ray). Rohmer’s film connects thematically with Jules Verne’s 1882 novel by the same name, and both film and book deal with a search for the scientific phenomenon of a rare green flash at sunset, which Verne interprets as revealing our thoughts and those of others ‘as if by magic’.
Taking these two aforementioned historical moments, this group exhibition, which takes place over Wilkinson’s two galleries, presents a wide variety of material in 2016 that deals with contemporary subjects of literature, cinema, painting, writing and the post-digital sublime.
February 27 - April 10, 2016
In celebration of Takeshi Murata’s self-titled monograph, edited by Dan Nadel and co-published by Salon 94, Ratio 3, and Kunsthall Stavanger, Nitehawk's ART SEEN presents a 35mm screening of RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD with an introduction by artist.
A screening of Murata's 2012 Night Moves (6 minutes) and other new horror shorts will take place beforehand.

Helen's residency has been scheduled to coincide with her founding of the Centre for Performance at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford, UK, which is opening tomorrow. The Ruskin Centre for Performance will provide a single space and forum for a diverse community of students and performance artists to come together to test out ideas and carry out research.
David Gryn, Daata Editions Director spoke to Lindsay Howard from Cultured Magazine on Daata Editions.
LH: What are your priorities when positioning video and digital art for general audiences?
DG: The audience still wants an object to possess; they want to own it, see it and touch it. I specialize in working with film, moving image, video and sound, and have realized that these are similar to any other mediums. They can be shown, observed and collected like anything else. Ultimately it’s about developing ways to convey the artist’s intentions as clearly as possible.
Amalia Ulman's work Excellences & Perfections forms part of Tate Modern's exhibition Performing for the Camera curated by Simon Baker, Senior Curator, Tate Modern with Fiontán Moran, Assistant Curator, Tate Modern.
Amalia Ulman shot to fame with a spoof delivered through her Instagram account, which fooled both her own followers and art-world critics. Over the course of four months Ulman produced an elaborate performance through Instagram posts, pretending to move to Los Angeles and trying to fit in by having plastic surgery and taking up Californian hobbies. Ulman’s work was a brilliantly convincing version of the celebrity Instagram craze where millions of ‘followers’ apparently seem to care what pop stars and reality TV personalities had for breakfast (Simon Baker).
February 18 — June 12, 2016
Matt's residency has been scheduled to coincide with his performance in The Magazine at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery on February 15, as part of the gallery's Magazine Sessions, a new series of experimental and immersive events, presented in collaboration with Fiorucci Art Trust.

Set in Florida and inspired by Harmony Korine’s homonymous book, Leo Gabin’s film consists of a collage of YouTube videos, mostly self-made, which depicts negative yet realistic aspects of the lost American dream. Moreover, it interprets contemporary social and political reality similarly to how Korine’s novel collects allegedly documentary fragments of American culture. Film introduced with a video essay by Paula Albuquerque.

Peres Projects presents Exit/Entry, the third solo exhibition by Leo Gabin in the gallery. The new works on aluminium and film are an evolution in Gabin’s recognizable aesthetic of appropriation and repeated, graphically iconic symbols of American life.
The exhibition is a total installation centered around the new film which is entirely composed of footage uploaded by the protagonist herself. From a collection of more than 3,000 videos, Leo Gabin makes a well thought out selection to re-create one typical day in the life of Bonnie. The film shifts between reality and illusion, through a psychological projection of the world’s order. Thoroughly observed, Exit/Entry is oddly savvy. The level of obsession it portrays is utterly fascinating and disturbing, yet it is another mode of isolation prevalent in modern life.
Audio used as a voice-over has been recorded by Bonnie and sent to Leo Gabin to use in the film. Until now they haven’t met in person.

Planthouse presents 'battery life', a solo exhibition with Florian Meisenberg.
For 'battery life' Florian revisits the world of programming to further his research. He invites the spectator to act as the organic agent in manipulating and interpreting the installed environment. Using built and designed technological products, Meisenberg explores the voodoo of progress and the contemporary relationship between the digital and the human through an examination of artificial intelligence, product design, and manufactured intimacy.

Helen Benigson will participate in an evening of newly commissioned live works at the Zabludowicz Collection alongside Adam James and Sisters From Another Mister, expanding on moments of intersection and disorientation in our increasingly slippy experience of real and virtual worlds.
Helen Benigson's CASHINO DESERT takes ideas of incubation to the womb and desert when a pregnant body travels between Nevada and Las Vegas. Casinos, carpets and convertibles set the scene for a hyper real girl group, headed up by a girl in her first trimester, who can't believe their luck at the free drinks, dazzling lights and views of Vegas and the surrounding desert area. The video will be performed with three musicians and a live rap from Princess Belsize Dollar.

Leo Gabin's 'Crackup at the Race Riots' is shortlisted for the New:Vision Award of CPH:DOX.
Harmony Korine's novel 'Crackup at the Race Riots', a provocative, anthropological odyssey through the semi-surreal and almost post-apocalyptic world of pop-art America, is ideal material for Leo Gabin, which has 'adapted' Korine's novel as a hallucinatory collage of YouTube clips, all of which were shot in the crisis-ridden sunshine state of Florida.
New:Vision is a competition for the boundary-pushing experiments between film and contemporary art. Provocative and challenging, but also poetic and abstract. From the brief poetic moment to the cinematic essay and on to philosophical genre excursions beyond the boundaries of reality.
CPH:DOX, Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival, is the third biggest documentary film festival in the world. Each year, the festival fills Copenhagen’s cinemas with a selection of more than 200 films from around the world. The dates for 2015 are November 5th-15th.

Florian Meisenberg's work forms part of 'The Casual Gesture' exhibition at Standpoint Gallery, curated by Eye-Eye (Flore Nové-Josserand and Thorbjørn Andersen) with works by artists Claudia Djabbari, Florian Meisenberg, Grégoire Motte, Laurence Payot, Philip Ewe, Luke McCreadie and Bruce McLean.
The casual gesture betrays a serendipitous state of mind, an offhand attitude. Provocative in its disregard for conventions and formalities, the casual gesture, like throwing a coat over a chair, takes a chance, cuts loose and asserts its freedom in the face of no-nonsense living.
November 6 - December 5, 2015
'Sticky Drama' a new film by Jon Rafman and Daniel Lopatin is now available to watch online at
The short film / music video is released in two parts -- Sticky Drama (Prologue) and Sticky Drama (Music Video). With a cast of over 35 children, the film brings to life a fantastical world in which characters are on a quest, battling for dominance and in a race against time to archive past histories. Inspired by the costumes, staging and extended improvised narratives of Live Action Role Play (LARP), the video reflects the vivid, often violent world of children’s imaginations and games, as well as extending both artists’ ongoing investigation into appropriation, the nature of memory and the horror of data loss.
The piece was originally commissioned by the Zabludowicz Collection in conjunction with Warp Records. An alternative edit of it has been showing as part of Rafman’s multi-format exhibition currently showing in London.
A Daata Editions Screening
David Risley Gallery
Screening & Drinks
Thursday 12 November 6-8pm
David Gryn, Daata Editions Director, and David Risley are delighted to invite you to a screening of works from the Daata Editions 3rd Artwork Release from Season One. The works will be introduced by David Gryn during a special event hosted by David Risley Gallery.
The artworks are available on daata-editions.com
The screening coincides with the last few days of Charlie Roberts - JUICY XXL at David Risley Gallery and CPH/DOX.
Lina Lapelyte's 'Hunky Bluff' forms part of the Beginnings exhibition at Galerija Vartai, with works by Angela Bullock, Liam Gallick, Ugnius Gelguda, Tim Kliukoit, Lina Lapelyte, Justin Morin, Quim Packard, Augustas Serapinas, The Soska Group (Mykola Ridnyi and Serhiy Popov), curated by Neringa Bumblienė
The artworks in the exhibition Beginnings employ a song or a melody in the context of contemporary art, as a convenient tool to speak about what is happening here and now, even if it is sometimes from a wider spatial or temporal perspective. The authors presented in the show are not strictly sound artists in the sense that they often or most often work with other means and techniques, therefore sound or a song in this instance does not come to the centre of attention in qualitative terms. Rather, it is a convenient, handy material - sometimes even a ready-made - used by the artists in creating their artworks. Collectively, the exhibition forms a soundtrack of the present day.
October 27 - November 27, 2015
Matt Copson's work is featured in 'The March Project' exhibition at the Sharjah Art Foundation, UAE, which presents new, site-specific works by Majd Abdel Hamid, Maysoon Al Ali, Mona Al-Beiti, Balqis Al Rashid, Matt Copson, Sholto Dobie and Matthew Peers.
Matt Copson’s installation work is a continuation of an ever-growing saga concerning the character of Reynard The Fox. Originally a figure from old European folklore, Reynard is re-positioned in the contemporary world in a variety of guises. In this new installation Reynard is presented in fragmented form- his head and his body separated- performing a duologue to one another about the relative merits of a mind-less body and a body-less mind and the impossibility of communication.
The backdrop to this absurdist-existentialist drama is a wall of throbbing LED writing boards and animated wall murals in amongst a desert of artificial boulders and rocks, one of which Reynard lies upon delivering his final worlds. ‘Reynard Reprised’is an explosion of deep melancholy, visceral transcendence and literal rock opera.
October 31, 2015 - January 16, 2016
Andrea Meislin Gallery is pleased to announce A 7th Option, Ilit Azoulay's third solo exhibition at the gallery. This exhibition will be presented concurrently with the artist's inclusion in Ocean of Images: New Photography 2015 at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, November 7–March 20.
Two related pieces will be shown simultaneously at MoMA and at Andrea Meislin Gallery. These works are the result of the artist's 2013 residency at the Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin (KW), during which the artist embarked on an extensive process of historical and archival research of buildings across Germany, collecting and photographing objects and architectural fragments from the various sites she visited.
At MoMA, Shifting Degrees of Certainty is an installation of 85 custom-framed photographs arranged in a puzzle-like constellation spanning 30 feet. Each piece is accompanied by an audio-based component telling a story related to its history, both real and imaginary. This expansive installation, recently acquired by MoMA, functions as a visual inventory of the artist's research.
It is from this "inventory" that Azoulay constructed four new panoramas—which she refers to as "options"—including A 7th Option. In this 36-foot panoramic photograph, presented at Andrea Meislin Gallery, the artist re-contextualizes, resizes and collages various elements referenced in Shifting Degrees of Certainty, creating a space for contemplation of the real and of representation within a theatrical presentation in the gallery.

This autumn the museum Dhondt-Dhaenens presents the first feature film by the Belgian artist trio Leo Gabin A crackup at the Race Riots. The film is an adaptation of the eponymous experimental novel of the famous American screenwriter, director and artist Harmony Korine.
For this film the artists of Leo Gabin made sole use of amateur films they found on the Internet. Amongst others we see scantily clad teenage girls dancing in front of the webcam, pimped Cadillac cars, but also images of streets in American suburbs with palm trees, shopping malls and typical bungalow houses. The film is at first sight a collage of banal images which together form an alienating entity. A clear narrative or message cannot be instantly discovered in the film, it is rather an experimental scan of what reality and fiction still mean today.

Rachel Macleans works are part of The British Art Show 8, a touring exhibition that provides a vital overview of the most exciting contemporary art produced in the UK. While previous films have seen Maclean work with existing audio from films and pop culture to create fantastical, otherworldly narratives in which she plays all of the characters, her new work in British Art Show 8 is scripted, and sees her work closely with a group of professional actors.
Rachel Maclean’s films, which have saccharine, multicoloured visuals reminiscent of children's television, and characters drawn from fairy tales, myths and internet memes, explore society's complex relationship with childhood innocence and female sexuality.
'This is what a hit looks like in the age of digital art' - Ginanne Brownell for The New York Times
Daata Editions is featured in The New York Times in an article by Ginanne Brownell, outlining the idea behind Daata Editions, the way the platform works and artists' views on Daata Editions and their work online.
Daata Editions is pleased to announce that the entirety of artworks from Daata Editions Season One has entered major collections in Germany and the US. The Dusseldorf-based Julia Stoschek Collection has purchased the full set of 109 new works by 18 artists and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles has accepted them as a philanthropic gift.
Connie Butler, Chief Curator at the Hammer Museum, believes that these video, sound, and web art pieces will booster the Hammer Contemporary Collection’s holdings and extend the museum’s history of collecting and displaying new media work.
Julia Stoschek Collection is focused on contemporary art with a special interest in time based media art, aiming to create an image of today’s cultural and social condition. Julia Stoschek, Founder of the Julia Stoschek Collection, said: "Daata Editions provides an innovative platform for a new generation of artists and collectors as well as an experimental approach to distribution and display of media art.”
As David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions, says: "The fact that these major public and private collections have acquired all of the works from our first commissioning cycle Season One is a most fantastic endorsement to what we have set up and to the artists we are working with. This is an important moment that underlines the growing market for artist's video, sound and web artworks internationally, but there is still plenty of work to do."
Daata Editions presents the Daata Editions Lounge at the Zabludowicz Collection to coincide with Jon Rafman's and Charles Richardson's first major UK solo exhibitions at the Zabludowicz Collection, as well as the Collection's acquisition of all artworks from Daata Editions Season One. The lounge is open during gallery opening hours and will show a rotating display of artworks from Daata Editions Season One.
Daata Editions is also pleased to announce the 3rd Artwork Release from Season One with a special event at the Daata Editions Lounge at the Zabludowicz Collection.

As part of the Zabludowicz Collection Invites, Charles Richardson presents HEADBONE, an exhibition featuring a new single-channel video as its central component.
As with his work for Daata Editions, Charles Richardson uses digital photography to create 3D models of his own body, and the bodies of others, which are then animated with movement and sound. The video is presented alongside sculptural objects linked to its production, and displayed in an installation constructed from foil-covered board that requires viewers to weave a route through to a final ‘chamber’.

Daata Editions and Monegraph Grow Online Marketplace for Digital Art
The art market continues to grow, with spring auction house sales totalling a record-breaking $2.6 billion this year. But video and new media works make up a fraction of the works sold, and are only represented in 10 percent of collections. Although more artists than ever are working digitally, many of them find it difficult to monetize their work and have expanded their practices to include more easily commodifiable objects. The problem of selling new media works, of course, is not new. Since video art emerged in the 1960s and ‘70s, new media artists have struggled to earn a living comparable to their colleagues working in more traditional forms like painting and sculpture. Our recent shift to digital, though, rather than being another source of the problem, just might lead us toward a solution.
Two companies are working to develop new systems for selling intangible work and getting artists paid. David Gryn, a curator and consultant based in London, launchedDaata Editions in May with support from collector Anita Zabludowicz. The digital platform is devoted to selling select video, Web-based and sound works commissioned from artists with gallery representation. Artist and professor Kevin McCoy’splatform Monegraph, which launches in September, is more democratic. The service offers an online marketplace as well as a licensing system based on similar encryption technology used by Bitcoin and other so-called “cryptocurrencies.”
Daata Editions is featuring at Super Woofer, a one-day sound fair, organised by X Marks the Bökship at Matt's Gallery, London, with a Daata Editions stand and performance by Matt Copson.
Matt Copson will present 'Moralise The Masses', a new performance featuring Reynard Incarnate, Matt's fox alter-ego, with a live monologue and musical accompaniment by Alex White and Mark William Lewis.
Super Woofer sound fair has invited artists and audio publishers to have stalls for selling and displaying analogue and digital audio works, including: Keith Harrison, Plastique Fanstastique, Benedict Drew, Marcia Farquhar, Leo Chadburn, Mikatsiu, John Lawrence,Daniela Cascella, Robert Pratt, Cesura // Acceso, Erinyes, Flange Zoo, 38b, Exploit.zzxjoanw.Gen, Girolamo Marri, Drawing Room Confessions, Sonic Imperfections, Trestle Records, Matt's Gallery, Consumer Waste, Editions of You, Top Nice, DISFIGMENT/BANKRUPSEA, The Cast of the Crystal Set, Dancehall, Sinkhole, Lost Toy Records, WE.

Stephen Vitiello participates in SANDRA GERING INC. exhibition Light and the Space of the Void, curated by architect and author Alexander Gorlin.
The exhibition takes as its inspiration Gorlin’s 2013 publication Kabbalah in Art and Architecture, an engrossing look at the author’s perspectives on how aspects of Kabbalah can be seen, either directly or indirectly, in many modern and contemporary works. Specifically, the exhibition’s focus is on the aspects of ‘light’ and its relationship to ‘void’ in various forms.
The artists and architects represented in Light and the Space of the Void are Daniel Buren, Steven Holl, Anish Kapoor, Anselm Kiefer, Yayoi Kusama, Daniel Libeskind, Gordon Matta-Clark, Barnett Newman, Kenneth Noland, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Stephen Vitiello and Frank Lloyd Wright and Alexander Gorlin.

Rachel Maclean's works for Daata Editions collectively titled Let It Go will form part of the artist's solo show at Inverness Museum & Art Gallery, UK.

Maclean plays each of the characters in her films donning outlandish self-made costumes and thick make-up. Comprised of six videos, Let it Go, explores themes of class, aspiration and childhood as 6 wide-eyed pauper characters mime to dialogue sourced from YouTube. These segments are spliced together with passionate confessions of hunger, rage, suffering and insecurity.

Art writer and curator Courtney Malick reflects on Daata Editions on the occasion of the platform's launch.
'This platform is particularly exciting to see emerging right now, as so many younger artists, (...), are working in ways that resist traditional modes of exhibition, reception and therefore of collecting as well. It is important that while we continue to find new artists whose work pushes the definition of contemporary art, that there are also ever developing formats through which such work can be accessed and best understood'.
