Yung Jake mixes wildly immersive digital art with rap. Via the paint-with-emojis site emoji.ink, he created celebrity portraits featured by MTV, People, and Time that inspired a Pepsi ad. In emoji portrait vids, Yung Jake tracks his creative process of depicting each given rapper / celeb / or internet personality using the app emoji.ink that was programmed by his partner, Vince Mckelvie.

Daata and Vanity Projects are delighted to announce their collaborative partnership. We have launched a program from the Daata catalogue taking place over the next year, starting with Scott Reeder’s recent commissioned works for Daata launched at Art LA Contemporary 2017.

Vanity Projects is beyond a traditional gallery space.  While providing a bespoke nail experience, they offer video art programming aimed at changing the way people perceive and experience the video medium.

Directed by Rita de Alencar Pinto, the program includes collaborations with international curators and artists. In March 2017, Vanity Projects partnered with online art platform Daata Editions. Daata Editions commission’s artist video, sound, poetry and web. 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/

A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness (2013) by Ben Rivers and Ben Russell

A SPELL follows an unnamed character through three seemingly disparate moments in his life. With little explanation, we join him in the midst of a 15-person collective on a small Estonian island; in isolation in the majestic wilderness of Northern Finland; and during a concert as the singer and guitarist of a black metal band in Norway. Marked by loneliness, ecstatic beauty and an optimism of the darkest sort, A SPELL is a radical proposition for the existence of utopia in the present. Starring artist/musician Robert AA Lowe (best known for his intense live performances under the name LICHENS) in the lead role, A SPELL lies somewhere between fiction and non-fiction – it is at once a document of experience and an experience itself, an inquiry into transcendence that sees the cinema as a site for transformation.

Ben Rivers is represented by Kate MacGarry Gallery, London, UK and at Frieze NY
