This new, logical and innovative way to collect art is designed as a native platform to a new generation of artists who work with moving image and sound.

Vanity Projects is committed to presenting contemporary video art and this partnership galvanizes their ethos of developing new and innovative platforms to present the medium. Starting March 25th, 2017, Vanity Projects New York and Miami will run concurrent programs featuring artists in the Daata catalogue. With both solo and group presentations the content spans a wide area of interests and artists point of view. https://daata-editions.com/

David Gryn: Sound and Vision

In Alimantado, Art Basel, Art Basel in Miami Beach, Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Fair, Daata, Daata Editions, daataeditions, David Gryn, Film, keren cytter, Miami, Miami Beach, Uncategorized, Wilhelm Sasnal on 24/11/2016 at 11:50 am

Returning to curate the Art Basel Miami Beach Film program for a sixth year, David Gryn explains why music has inspired his choices, and how audiences can catch a glimpse of the ‘Best Dressed Chicken in Town’.

david-gryn_blurred-background_html__1_

Each year, as evening darkens the skies over Art Basel Miami Beach, visitors gather on the lawns of SoundScape Park to experience video works from some of the world’s most exciting artists. Sharing picnics, drinks, or simply being absorbed by art, they sit beneath the towering 7,000 square foot projection wall of the New World Center as it displays a program of films carefully chosen by curator David Gryn.

“My selections are quite instinctive,” says Gryn. “I am often attracted by artworks that affect me like music does; a thud in my chest, reverberations through my body, tingles down my neck and spine.” Fittingly then, music is the theme of this year’s program. “As [the New World Center is] a concert venue, music is inherent to the place we show the work and contextually it has a strong resonance. Asking galleries to submit films which engage with music in some way felt like a natural choice.”

Through this year’s theme, Gryn hopes to create a larger-than-life show to excite and engage the broadest possible audience. “Music is something universal. When you have dialogue in a certain language, you often exclude people outside it. Music, like art, crosses that divide – a sort of abstract language that has its own voice and says something about the human condition.”

Be enveloped by art

The program includes a set of 28 short films screened under the title Best Dressed Chicken in Town. “This was named after the 1970s reggae track by Doctor Alimantado, which has long inspired me. The idea behind it was to combine artworks using music and sound which, over the program’s two hour span, swell to a crescendo,” Gryn explains. And though he will not be drawn on a favorite this year (“I picked them, so they’re all my favorites!”), he singles out Terrorist of Love by Keren Cytter as being a film which never fails to make him smile, while Wilhelm Sasnal’s Kiss is “utterly wonderful.”

In addition to the screening of films, this year also heralds the third edition of Surround Sound, a specially commissioned program of sound works designed to take full advantage of SoundScape Park’s 160 speaker surround sound system. “I view my role as that of a facilitator. I aim to serve the artwork, the artist, and the gallery well by presenting pieces which will have the most resonance with the audience in the setting that we have.”

The communal act of experiencing art in this way is something special, says Gryn. “You get a sense of excitement, something you can palpably feel. You really do see an audience being enveloped by art. That’s what this platform achieves – and it encourages galleries, their artists, and a wider audience to take time with mediums that often don’t get much of a look in at events like this. There’s not another experience quite like it in the context of an art fair. Period.”

http://daata-editions.com http://artbasel.com http://www.fountainheadresidency.com/

This compilation of sound artworks will be played nightly during the fair from 6pm until 8pm – when the Film program starts.

In addition to the program of films, this year marks the third edition of Surround Sound, a program through which we have commissioned artists to create or reform work into Surround sound installations. This year’s artists include: Molly Palmer, Sussanah Stark, Ain Bailey, Zoe Buckman, Jonathan Montague and A.K. Burns.

The Soundscape Park experience is unique in the artworld — and a well known location for Miami locals — featuring a huge 7000 sq ft screening wall, with a 160 speaker surround sound system. In the screening area Art Basel provides large beanbag cushions – several people can lounge per cushion. It provides a great calming antidote to the frenetic pace of the Art Fair in the day and the plethoras of other events and parties at night.

NSD/TSD by Ain Bailey

NSD/TSD is a work exploring the natural acoustics of the New World Symphony Centre. This will be achieved by generating audio material from the environments internal soundscape, and composing a multichannel sound work from the resulting audio for presentation on the 160 speaker Surround Sound System in Soundscape Park. The project’s genesis stems from an ongoing research project entitled ‘AGORA’ which takes as a starting point the acoustics of sites such as churches, cinemas and gallery spaces, where people come together to form transitory assemblies.

Ain Bailey is a sound artist, living and working in London, UK. Her current practice involves an exploration of architectural acoustics, live performance, as well as collaborations with performance, visual and sonic artists. Among these is performance/visual artist Jimmy Robert, who commissioned Bailey to create a composition for his 2016 show ‘Desendances du Nu’ at the CAC-Synagogue de Delme, France. Bailey has exhibited and performed both nationally and internationally, and ‘Oh Adelaide’ her collaboration with the artist Sonia Boyce, has shown in London at Tate Britain and the Whitechapel Gallery, and The Kitchen, New York, to name but a few international art spaces. Bailey is also a doctoral scholar at Birkbeck, University of London.

One Round by Zoe Buckman

The audience stand amidst the sound of a speed bag being rhythmically hit in a boxing gym. The sound of the leather hitting the wood: hard and succinct, builds to an almost aggressive quality as it is picked up in surround sound, yet the repetition of this specific sound allows for an almost hypnotic or meditative experience.

The sounds one hears in a boxing gym have a testosterone-heavy quality to them. However during the time Buckman has spent in these spaces, she has drawn parallels between the strength, endurance and confidence needed to survive there, with female-centric experiences such as childbirth.

Zoë Buckman (b.1985, Hackney, East London) is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sculpture, photography, embroidery and installation, exploring themes of feminism, mortality and equality. Buckman’s work has been shown in solo exhibitions including Every Curve at Papillion Art, Los Angeles; Present Life at Garis & Hahn Gallery, New York and group exhibitions internationally including Truth to Power, a group show at the Democratic National Convention, Philadelphia, Making and Unmaking, at Camden Arts Centre, London, curated by Duro Olowu; For Freedoms, at Jack Shainman Gallery, NYC; Game On!, at Children’s Museum of Arts, NYC; To Be Young, Gifted & Black, Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg South Africa.

Leave No Trace (Side A) by A.K. Burns (Callicoon Fine Arts)

“Leave No Trace” is an analog audio project by A.K. Burns that is a limited edition vinyl record with a custom plastic bag, a pair of nitrile gloves and a poem. The recording combines ambient environmental recordings, the artist’s own voice, sounds generated from found materials and an old electric guitar. Leave No Trace, is part of a cycle of related works that use science fiction as a point of departure to rework relationships between bodies, nature, technology, territories and resources. The title refers to wilderness ethics as well as pointing to ways one leaves a mark, is codified and recorded.

A.K. Burns (b. 1975) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Burns is a 2016-17 Radcliffe Fellow through the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, where she is developing an ongoing project, Negative Space, a cycle of multi-media installations. The opening episode A Smeary Spot, debuted at Participant Inc, NY in the Fall of 2015. A new iteration will be exhibited at the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, September 2016. The work was initiated with the generous support of a Creative Capital Foundation Visual Arts Award and additional support for this work is being provided through the Education Department’s Spring 2017 Research & Development Season at the New Museum, where Burns is currently in residence. The residency will culminate with an exhibition opening January 2017.

Plundaphonic by Jonathan Montague

Ubik Radio Music Festival, Sound Installation, 2016
Using the narrative of the science fiction paradigm, the notion of self is questioned through sampling the audio back catalogue of my past. To then propose a future self of automated sounds in the format of a radio broadcast. Included is one selected track from the Radio show.

Using space as a material with the motion and affects of sound, I investigate the spatial narrative created via the inhabitation of the viewer, and the perception of sound. My background in Architecture informs the way in which work can inhabit a place and the spatial parameters of its context; giving insight into the way in which boundaries and intersections of spatial territory could be manipulated then occupied. Through investigation into the sonic potential properties of space and sound, conditions of an affect laden automated future, are addressed through access to a dialogue positioned in giving agency to dismantling notions of a predefined future. In my work I use my past as a material to sculpt and modulate, to create a future narrative. With reference to a speculative notion of self-identity, I generate work through a process of dis and re-association with the sampling of self.

Sirens by Molly Palmer
 (Supported by Fountainhead Residency)

There are sounds that follow you from place to place. In the cities while you wait for sleep, the sirens are a voice that makes a map – a long hand sketching lines between the buildings. This is a story and a song, but it is also a dream and a drawing. Sometimes a sound takes on a shape and lies down in your skull. An amoebic symbol stretching out from your bed to the edge of the night. The stereo version of this track uses binaural sound and benefits best from listening with headphones. 

Molly Palmer is a London-based artist who works within and between the media of music, installation, choreography and filmmaking. Using handmade props, sets and costumes to produce layered video worlds, she green-screens her protagonists into parallel places, where music, gesture and dialogue form cyclical narratives that explore the strangeness concealed within ordinary things. Palmer graduated from Royal Academy Schools this year, where she won the Gold Medal. Recent exhibitions and screenings include Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, RA Schools Show 2016, Royal Academy, London, Talk So I can See You, curated by Pil & Galia for the Czech Cultural Foundation, London, Premiums, Royal Academy, London, The Fade : touring solo show at CCA, Glasgow, Enclave, London and Torna, Istanbul, and Mono 5, curated by Rafal Zajko at The Courtyard Theatre, Hoxton, Herðubreið Theater Cinema, Seyðisfjörður, Bikini Wax, Mexico City and MUPU, Oaxaca.

The Wheel (featuring Don Hay) by Susannah Stark 

The Wheel, featuring vocals by London-based artist/musician Donald Hayden, is a recording in two parts that run parallel, intersecting across each other and finally together at once and on top of each other in a sculptural experience. Low-fi effects create a sense of echo and disorientation, a technique that was used in dub tracks in the 70s to bring about a metaphoric space of freedom and change, punctuated by layers of disembodied, digitised voices, like those that occur in the contemporary urban environment. This history is revisited to expose and uncover elements of language embedded in our everyday experience. The Wheel is about slowing down, peeling away words on the surface: the language of advertisement, spam, media and public manipulation, telesales and broadcasting, highlighting the flow of things – language – traded in a capitalist marketplace, inviting people to look beyond the constraints of the work and the language that is presented to them.

Susannah Stark is a scottish artist and printmaker, working with multimedia installation and sound, incorporating or involving issues of voice, power and reappropriation. This is part of an ongoing process of exploring how much of the western identity can be constructed from diverse popular sources and how the mouth may be the modulator for such regurgitations and formations. Her work explores the slippages between objects and voices translated from digital experience, to highlight and challenge material hierarchies.

Film & Sound at Art Basel in Miami Beach 2016

Soundscape Park, New World Symphony Center, Miami Beach

With a title borrowed from a classic 1970s reggae song by Jamaican dj/singer Doctor Alimantado, this year’s short film program focuses on a selection of international artists who engage with music in a multitude of ways. All the films in this varied and exciting program demonstrate the power of music to attract an audience, keep it engaged, elicit suspense and tug at the heartstrings. Similar to classical symphony works, the order of the films builds up a crescendo to create an awe-inspiring magic derived from the works in their entirety.

More info from the Art Basel Press Release:

Film: Art Basel announces details of its 2016 Film program in Miami Beach.

From November 30 through December 4, 2016, Art Basel will present a premier program of over 50 film and video works by some of today’s most exciting artists from North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Selected from the show’s participating galleries by David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions and Artprojx, this year’s program will include ‘Muxima’, the first film by Chilean-born artist Alfredo Jaar, as well as a silent film about music by Christian Marclay and a new work by Liliana Porter.

The program will also include short films by Edgardo Aragón, Ain Bailey and Sonia Boyce, Cabelo, Kudzanai Chiurai, Martin Creed, Keren Cytter, Kim Gordon, Rodney Graham, György Kovásznai, Rashid Johnson, Li Daiguo, Li Shurui, Jillian Mayer, Ana Mendieta, Haroon Mirza, Ara Peterson, Alex Prager, Anri Sala, Wilhelm Sasnal, Tromarama and Samson Young among many others.

Screenings will take place both in SoundScape Park on the 7,000 square-foot outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, as well as on dedicated touchscreen monitors within the Film Library at Art Basel’s show in the Miami Beach Convention Center.

In addition, Marian Masone, New York based film consultant and strategist, has selected ‘Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back’ (2016) directed by Maura Axelrod, for a special screening at the Colony Theatre on Friday, December 2.

Returning for his sixth year, curator David Gryn presents several works that engage with music, including a set of 28 short films screened under the title ‘Best Dressed Chicken in Town’ after a classic 1970s reggae song by Jamaican singer Doctor Alimantado.

The lineup focuses on a selection of international artists who engage with music in a multitude of ways. A ‘Double Bill’ program will pair two film works that share similar themes or approaches to an intense musical score: Rita Ackermann (b. 1968) and Christian Marclay (b. 1955) on Wednesday, and Liliana Porter (b. 1941) and Alfredo Jaar (b. 1956) on Friday.

The late screening on Thursday, December 1 will feature works by sound artist and DJ Ain Bailey (b. 1963), with Sonia Boyce (b.1962), along with pieces by Anna Grenman (b. 1984), Rashid Johnson (b. 1977), Alex Prager (b. 1979) and Penny Siopis (b. 1953).

The final presentation on Saturday, December 3 will include three early films by Polish artist Wilhelm Sasnal (b. 1972), in which he added visual accompaniment to enhance the aural experience, along with a recent work, in which the score directly drives the narrative, replacing spoken words.

Every evening, directly preceding the Film program, surround sound works by Ain Bailey, Zoë Buckman, A.K. Burns, Jonathan Montague, Molly Palmer and Susannah Stark will be presented on the state-of-the-art surround system in SoundScape Park.

In conjunction with the outdoor film screenings, over 50 works have been selected to be shown exclusively within Art Basel’s designated Film Library at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Visitors will be able to individually screen over 50 works by artists such as Stephen Dean, Edith Dekyndt, Maggie Lee, Gabriel Lester, Shelly Nadashi, Sophie Nys, João Vasco Paiva, Betye Saar, Jason Simon, Su-Mei Tse and Tuo Wang. The Film Library is accessible inside the fair halls on touch-screen monitors during show hours. Access with a show entrance ticket.

On Sunday, December 4 at 2pm, Art Basel’s Salon program will feature ‘The Artist as Composer’, a talk between the artists Rachel Manson, Molly Palmer and Susannah Stark, and Kathryn Mikesell, Founder of The Fountainhead Residency and Studios in Miami. The talk will be moderated by William Simmons, author, Hyperallergic, New York, with an introduction by Film and Sound curator David Gryn.

Art Basel entry tickets include admission to Salon.

Film at Art Basel in Miami Beach: Documenting an egalitarian perspective – David Gryn interview

‘Film at Art Basel: Documenting an egalitarian perspective’

Interview with David Gryn, Curator Film, Art Basel in Miami Beach since 2011

Saudi Gazette, Mariam Nihal, Saudi Arabia, January 24, 2015

(the article is based on the following q&a)

1.      Tell us about this year’s Art Basel and the most challenging part of organizing the film sector for this year?

This year’s Film at Art Basel in Miami Beach had an underlaying vision of ‘playfulness’, the playfulness of internet gaming, online action, art making, dance and performing, colour, sound and music. This was conceived to communicate both to the galleries to consider submitting artists moving image works that were engaging and also to consider the audience in Miami during an art fair, that will want to sit and watch artists’ films that are enthralling, exciting, thought provoking and entertaining. The challenge is to encourage the majority of galleries to think about artists moving image during an art fair and to attract an audience that have so many competitive events during an art fair week in Miami. My other challenge is to encourage galleries to think about artists who are statistically underrepresented by them and think egalitarian and have a global perspective.

2.      How has film and video art developed during the course of the last decade?

Technology over the last 10 years has exponentially been enhanced, this has enabled more and more artists to consider film and video and digital platforms as other powerful mediums to use for their work. Several well known artists such as Steve McQueen, Sam Taylor-Wood have gained notoriety and are celebrated for their feature films that have engaged with Hollywood and the Film industry, therefore this aspect of an artists career, that starts with artists experimenting with film and video to make art works has a now grand vision for many artists and that making feature films is a possible natural output of being an artist. We are also firmly part of a digital, online world and the impact of that on artists work and their career is ever evolving and improving. I planned the talk with Chrissie Iles, curator at the Whitney Museum and artist Tabor Robak and Rachel Rose – titled Playfulness: artists as online gamers, surfers and armchair digital revolutionaries and this was really to give a position of where we are currently finding ourselves in artists practice and in showing this art medium too.

3.      What plays the biggest role in developing art and design?

The artists’ vision and belief in their aesthetic truth. The art fair and galleries only exist because of artists and we need to keep remembering that our role is to support their vision and enable these arenas to be platforms for their voices and how they can inspire, inform, enchant us in every way.

4.      Tell us about the greater role of film art at Art Basel.

Film at ABMB provides the art fair a platform to show works by artists that do not get seen too often at international art fairs. It also enables the general public to see durational works for free, and be part of the citywide art experience and understanding. We show work on the 7000 sq ft screening wall of the Frank Gehry designed New World Center, with a powerful 35k lumen projector and room in SoundScape Park for over 1000 people to see each of this years 8 screening programmes. We also introduced the Art Basel Film Library inside the fair this year, which gave fair goers a chance to interrogate and personally view all the films that were selected for the fair.

5.      Which artist who participated in the show did you most enjoy working with?

I enjoy the whole process of working with the galleries and their artists. This year we introduced sound to play on the amazing 160 speaker, purpose built surround sound system in SoundScape Park working with Raed Yassin, Jennie C. Jones, Larry Achiampong and Stephen Vitiello. Some artists such as Hayal Pozanti, Parker Ito, Charles Richardson completed edited works specifically for the program. I also collaborated with Tabor Robak on the programme I coined ‘The Digital Revolutionaries’ including his work, Jon Rafman, Oliver Laric and a tribute to Harun Farocki. Saya Woolfalk, Dara Friedman, Marcel Dzama, Charles Atlas, Marnie Weber, Takeshi Murata, Rachel Rose were works by other selected artists that had a great resonance with me.

6.      What is the role of art fairs like Art Basel on the medium? How does the fair help nurture the scene?

Art Basel approached me to work with them 5 years ago, to help nurture an area that needs inproving at the art fair and at all art fairs in general. Art Basel recognised the need for the support of artists mediums that do not all have immediate commercial attributes, which often get overlooked by us all during the hustle and bustle of preparing for and being at art fairs. We have to treat film, performance, sound as important and valued mediums in our art world, therefore they will become big and more valued, it is an obvious logic, but one which we all need reminding of and our constant attention.
