Curated by David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions

May 1 – June 30, 2015

Salon 94 is pleased to present The Digital Revolutionaries: The Shiboogi Version on the video wall at 243 Bowery.

David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions, has curated a special selection of videos for screening on the video wall (and viewable online at Salon 94). The Daata Editions screening program celebrates the launch of the new online platform http://daata-editions.com by showing a selection of recent moving image works by artists commissioned to make new works for Daata (available to view and buy from May 14). Daata places artists at the center of the project and encourages a marketplace and means for distribution that supports artists working across digital media.

The Digital Revolutionaries is all of us. The digital realm is now our natural language and its evolution is ours. These artists make work that reflect on how we use the internet in personal and clichéd ways. What does it mean to surf and go online in our everyday experience? What are the references, inspirations and new kinds of vocabulary? Many of these works derive from public video sharing sites like Youtube, sourcing and super-cutting the accessible moments that resonate. The generation of Digital Revolutionaries make art with, for, from and about this medium, the internet.

New York  (April 17, 2015) – Daata Editions is a new online platform dedicated to the support, promotion and collecting of artists’ digital moving image and sound. This new and innovative way to collect art is designed specifically to be a native platform to a new generation of artists who are working with video, sound, and web (mediums), and which are not easily exhibited in the traditional gallery context. Daata Editions is founded and directed by curator David Gryn, and developed by London based web agency Studio Scasascia. Daata was born of a need seen by Gryn via his work as a curator, noticing the concerns of galleries, institutions, and collectors interested in artists working in moving image and sound. Daata Editions is a remedy to this, a new business that commissions and empowers artists to develop new work, and creates a seamless and playful platform for collectors and viewers to access and experience this material.    

Launch Commissions 

Daata Editions will be launching by commissioning 18 artists to create six new – video, sound or web artworks each.  All of the works, each in an edition of 20, will be available online for sale and research. The website is designed to be an easy to use and aesthetically appealing interface for collectors to browse and acquire the works. The Daata Editions website is ideal for these works, as a native platform, Daata presents digital commissions for digital distribution.

The first group of artists commissioned to create new artworks for the launch of Daata Editions are: Ilit Azoulay, Helen Benigson, David Blandy, Matt Copson, Ed Fornieles, Leo Gabin, Daniel Keller & Martti Kalliala, Lina Lapelyte, Rachel Maclean, Florian Meisenberg, Takeshi Murata, Hannah Perry, Jon Rafman, Charles Richardson, Amalia Ulman, Stephen Vitiello, and Chloe Wise. In addition to the commissioned editions available for purchase, all subscribers to the platform will receive a free Jon Rafman artwork, made specifically for Daata Editions launch. Art writer and curator Lucy Chinen has written the first texts for the website.
