Queertopia, curated by Gemma Rolls-Bentley for Daata Editions

Launching online on Daata Editions and exhibited at

If So, What?

Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco April 26-29, 2018 https://www.ifsowhat.com

Daata Editions is announcing a new online project Queertopia, curated by Gemma Rolls-Bentley, Artsy Private Sales Lead and Gay Times Magazine Columnist and Curator, to be launched at a screening exhibition at If So, What?, a new art fair celebrating art, design, music, and innovation in San Francisco April 26-29, 2018.

Daata will also be collaborating with Label Dalbin and their Table.Video – an acclaimed concept that originally debuted at the Venice Biennale and the Design Miami/Basel – by streaming artworks through two custom-made tables at If So, What?.

Queertopia is a collection of work that reviews the existence of queer communities and their spaces – both real and mythological, memorialising those lost and building environments and landscapes to nurture new radical possibilities. The icons, monuments and geography of queertopia present an opportunity to explore future structures of identity, inti- macy and legacy. The list of artists features Holly Blakey, Rindon Johnson, Zoe Marden, Rashaad Newsome, Han- nah Quinlan + Rosie Hastings, Jacolby Satterwhite and Puck Verkade.

Director of Daata Editions and Technology & Sound Curator for If So, What? David Gryn and Gemma Rolls-Bentley will both feature in conversations at the fair.

Digital de Suite. 
An Afternoon Discussion on Art, Droite de Suite & Blockchain Technologies.

Friday May 4, 2018 3-6pm

Ace Hotel New York, 20 West 29th Street, New York, NY 10001
 
Hosted by Daata Editions, Even Magazine, Monograph, Tech:NYC, ACE Hotels.
 
Speakers include: Hayden Dunham, Artist; Joao Enxuto & Erica Love, Tracking; Jess Houlgrave, Codex; Nora Khan, Rhizome; Hugo Liu, Artsy; Kevin McCoy, Monegraph; Sarah Meyohas, Artist; James Tarmy, Bloomberg; Brad Troemel, Artist; Amy Whitaker, New York University; Noah Wunsch, Sotheby’s; Artie Vierkant, Artist.
 

Over the last six months, the blockchain has dominated conversations about technology and its relationship to markets from currencies to CryptoKitties. For the arts, whose markets are as opaque and unregulated as possible, blockchain technologies have the potential to fully upend traditional models. From production and its interests in authenticity and serialization, to market concerns including provenance and droit de suite, assumptions as basic as when artists should be paid for their work are now subject to re-evaluation.

Artists, entrepreneurs, and established players in the art market and tech communities will participate in panel discussions and solo presentations in an afternoon appropriately scheduled between the opening of Frieze Art Fair and New York’s Creative Tech Week.

The afternoon will conclude with a presentation of new work by Hayden Dunham that address the information systems inherent to blockchain technology. Commissioned in part by David Gryn of Daata Editions, with support from Tech:NYC. The work will be registered on Monegraph and available for purchase (and subsequent tracking) during Frieze London.

Can there be transparency in the market?

Transparency in the art market is one of the most widely discussed topics at present. Between best practice, regulation and standards, the art world has struggled for decades to deal with the opacity of a market.

Is it time for a new gallery model?

Technology and the arts – where do we go?

Everyone goes digital. Phillips auctions new slogan is “Digital First”. But what does that mean? Do digital natives even consider the digital and technology as a driver for the art market? Where do they see technological innovation going?
