More Info
Daata Editions and Artspace are delighted to announce the offer of a new co-commissioned video work by Keren Cytter as a downloadable collectible edition, free of charge. The video entitled ‘Terrorist of Love’ continues the New York based artist’s experimental filmmaking practice that subverts cinematic tropes, layers multiple fractured narratives, and reflexively refers to the medium. Tapping into a viral strain of humour found on Tumblr and GIF-sharing sites, the video is as chuckle-worthy as it is contemplative. Using a fixed 4K camera, Cytter shot the video in one take, before devising an unconventional music video format in post-production using key framing, meme-like imagery, and an original soundtrack—an unprecedented approach to video-making in any genre.


Lindsay Howard a text for Daata Editions
Curator Lindsay Howard will contribute in the Foreword section of Daata Editions, presenting a text on the platform and the new artworks release. The text will become available to read online together with the launch of the new artworks during Frieze London. https://daata-editions.com/info/foreword

New Curated section on Daata Editions website
We are excited to announce the launch of a new section on the website, titled ‘Curated’ through which Daata Editions will invite guest curators to introduce new artists’ works on the website. The curators will be asked to make a selection of Daata Editions artworks as well as present works by other artists, in a way that facilitates the artistic conversation and creates a dialogue between the platform and various contemporary art practices.

Our inaugural curator is Katherine Finerty, who presents works by Daata Editions artists Tameka Norris and Rashaad Newsome, alongside a video artwork by Phoebe Boswell. All of these works address interrogating identity politics through a digital confessional portrait of sorts, employing sound, communication and voice (from inflection and cadence to signification and representation) to challenge stereotypes, double consciousness, and modes of self expression / storytelling. The Curated section launched online during EXPO Chicago, September 22 – 25.

EXPO Chicago
Daata Editions participated at EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, September 22 – 25 presenting newly commissioned artworks by Daata Editions artists: Larry Achiampong, Casey Jane Ellison, Rashaad Newsome, Tameka Norris, Saya Woolfalk.
In addition, Daata Editions has commissioned Gutter Records, a record store and label for music made by artists based at David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen, to select artists for the Daata Editions website. Gutter Records has selected Jake Chapman, Graham Dolphin, Joachim Koester & Stefan A. Pedersen, whose works for the platform were also presented during the fair.

The newly launched artworks were joined by other recently released artists on Daata, including: Sofie Alsbo, Thora Dolven Balke, Tracey Emin, Michael Manning, Rashaad Newsome (sound works), Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, Jacolby Satterwhite, John Skoog, Katie Torn and bitforms gallery selects Sara Ludy, Jonathan Monaghan and Quayola.



Saya Woolfalk – Colour Mixing Machine

POSTmatter Collaboration
We are excited to announce our collaboration with the digital publication POSTmatter and the file sharing online platform WeTransfer, for the launch of Saya Woolfalk’s commission for Daata Editions, collectively titled ‘Color Mixing Machine’.

Saya Woolfalk’s works went online at Daata Editions on Thursday 8 September to coincide with the launch of a custom-made wallpaper created by the artist and presented by Daata Editions and POSTmatter on WeTransfer. In addition, POSTmatter presented an interview with the artist, focusing on her practice, which spans from performance to digital practices, and the Emphatics, her fictional future female species.

Saya Woolfalk’s ‘Color Mixing Machine’ series formed part of Daata Editions presentation at EXPO Chicago, September 22 – 25, with a solo screen installation in the main fair. In addition, POSTmatter will present the works in the launching party of its redesigned site and first online issue ‘New Mythologies’ in London on September 29th at Second Home London Fields.
