Arts.com is pleased to announce that through a £14,000 grant from the City Community Fund, we have been able to greatly enhance our ability to promote the new media artists by providing not only the space, but now also the equipment to produce and display high quality digital and screen based exhibits.
With digital and screen based art being one of the most dynamic areas of contemporary practice, this new capacity to exhibit and promote these artists and their works has greatly enhanced Arts.com standing as the City’s leading venue for emerging contemporary artists.
The Launch of our New Media Capacity was celebrated by the Exhibition, Subterranean, which brought together two of the City’s most exciting emerging New Media artists, Samuel Eddy and Damon Bird. Both Eddy and Bird have sought to uncover the darker side of the City experience, with works investigating the psychological and emotional reactions to the City environment, culture and the night-time urban setting.
The New Media Launch was celebrated throughout the week with performances and workshops by ITA, a London based improvised sound art group, and Canadian Graf artist ACORN.
The AGM for Art.com will be held at 6:00pm on 28th of May in the Arts.com Art-space. It is important that we have a good representation of the members at the meeting. There are some changes and amendments that the committee are wishing to put forward and your feedback and input in these matters is needed.
The committee is also calling for nominations for committee and executive positions. Download the nomination form
