A Goth Life … (A Stranger Love Version playlist)

Curated by 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.

Jacky Connolly, Anhedonia, 2017 (a New Daata Editions Artist 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 as a Cultural Partner. https://www.newartdealers.org/

UNTITLED, RADIO is organized by Director of Programming and Development, Amanda Schmitt with San Francisco Programming and Development Advisor, Juana Berrio.

UNTITLED, ART is an international, curated art fair founded in 2012 that focuses on curatorial balance and integrity across all disciplines of contemporary art. Untitled, Art innovates the standard fair model by selecting a curatorial team to identify, and curate a selection of galleries, artist-run exhibition spaces, and non-profit institutions and organizations, in dialogue with an architecturally designed venue. Since 2014 the curatorial team has consisted of Christophe Boutin, Omar López-Chahoud and Melanie Scarciglia. The inaugural edition of UNTITLED, SAN FRANCISCO will take place at the historic Pier 70 in the Dogpatch neighborhood, January 13 – 15, 2017.

THE WATTIS INSTITUTE for Contemporary Arts will build a temporary bar on-site at the fair, inspired by the Wattis Bar – an intimate gathering place designed by the artist Oscar Tuazon. The bar will serve as the hub for Untitled, Radio, as a site to host public programs, and a meeting place throughout the course of the fair.
