Newmediator.org is hosting our first independent art show, with talented artists from across the country in Highland Park, New Jersey.
Newmediator.org is a podcast that discusses art and emerging artists, using new media to reach a wider audience and to showcase the work of diverse artists in order to create and foster a greater artistic community. One of the goals of Newmediator.org is to collaborate with talented artists to show their work to a wider audience, and to serve as a model for other artists and artist communities to harness the power of new media to do so as well.
This spring we are going to host our first independent group show, bringing the work of talented emerging artists from across the country together, and we need YOUR help!
We are going to be hosting a one-day group show on May 28, 2011. We have already selected talented artists from around the country to participate. The show itself is only one aspect of the overall project; it will be documented digitally and in print, offering the audience an array of options for viewing and interacting with the art. In addition to the live show, which will take place in central New Jersey at a location convenient to public transportation. We will also print a limited addition of a catalog of the works, which will itself be a collaborative artwork, with each one individually signed and numbered. We will also document the exhibition and interviewing the artists for newmediator.org, as well as select donors.
The funds from this Kickstarter Project will go to paying for the space rental, the printing of the catalog, and the mailing cost of sending the catalog to each of the donors.
How can you participate? You can donate to Newmediator.org's exhibition fund, take part in the catalog, become part of the podcast, join us for the group show, or do all of the above! What makes this project so exciting is that you can support the arts directly, while also supporting artists with different artistic practices and approaches to their work. If you support the arts, want to foster new collaborative projects, and you believe in affordable artwork you should donate to the First Annual Newmediator.org exhibition.
