Good job, everyone. Woo! Art F City has been nominated for the “best blog” award by the International Association of Art Critics (AICA-USA).
Here’s a blast from the past: The Commons Art Diagram builds upon MTAA’s 1997 GIF, “The Art Happens Here“, and illustrates where ‘art happens’ or ‘could happen”. The piece was included in The Art Happens Here exhibition as part of the iCommons Summit ‘07, which I attended in 2007 in Dubrovnik. It was printed on t-shirts, bags and stickers and distributed to conference attendees. This is not a GIF, but is included in our series because it builds on one.
Jack Krasnow makes GIFs that look like no other illustrations on the net. Sometimes that’s enough to make it as a GIF of the Day pick.
Editor’s Note: IMG MGMT is a series of image-based essays by artists. This week’s artists are Peter Burr and Porpentine. We recommend viewing this essay in “Dark Mode” , a new feature that changes the default background on the blog to black. It can be turned off and on by using the button just above our ads.
Burr is a current NYFA fellow in Digital/Electronic Arts whose work has been shown in a range of spaces over the past decade including floating cinemas, cartoon schools, semi-legalized squats, libraries, and national museums. This includes MoMA PS1, Le Centre Pompidou, and The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. Porpentine is a fem organism whose games and curation have contributed to the popularity of accessible game design software Twine. She’s won the XYZZY and Indiecade awards, had her work displayed at EMP Museum and The Museum of the Moving Image, and been profiled by the NYTimes.
