DiVA Fair (Digital & Video Art) – New York

Dates: March 9-12 2006

Location: Embassy Suites Hotel – 102 North End Avenue, New York, NY 10281

 

Frere Independent announces DiVA New York 2006, the second edition of the Digital & Video Art Fair at the Embassy Suites Hotel from March 9th to March 12th. For 4 days, 40 to 50 suites on the first 3 floors overlooking the Atrium will host Digital and Video Artworks from artists around the world. Each gallery will occupy one suite to display the work of artists they will present to the New York public. Galleries will dedicate one of the rooms of the suite to a single artist while using the second room to showcase other digital and video related works. Special events happening as part of DiVA include the Urban Video Experience, panel discussions, a tribute to Andy Warhol, and our opening night party starting at 10pm in the VIP Lounge at the Embassy Suites Hotel on Thursday March 9th. Additionally, DiVA is producing a comprehensive catalogue which will include artists presented at DiVA, relevant texts and more. The catalogue will be available for ! purchase at the fair and online.

A Tribute to Andy Warhol
DiVA NY 06 is dedicated to the work of Andy Warhol as a film and video art pioneer. We have chosen Andy Warhol as a central figure of the New York Art community and more specifically because while his work as a video/film artist is well known, very little of this work is on view in comparison to his screen prints. We also feel that his influence on leading artists working with new media has not been explored completely. The tribute will consist of the exhibition of 3 films by Warhol, a special section in the catalogue and a panel discussion moderated by DiVA`s Curator Elga Wimmer.

The Urban Video Experience – DiVA Containers
As part of the DiVA NY 06, Frere Independent and ContainerArt are producing an urban video exhibition in Lower Manhattan. 20 shipping containers will be displayed in chosen locations of Lower Manhattan creating a unique treasure hunt for the visitors of DiVA as well as the Lower Manhattan community. The containers will serve as temporary art galleries available for the public to visit and will focus exclusively on Digital and Video Art. Works will be selected from the stable of DiVA Galleries and a few invited Museums. Galleries may not apply for this show.

Panel Discussions
This year`s panels will take place on Saturday March 11th from 2pm to 10pm. The panels focus on “The Influence of Warhol`s Films on Living Artists,” “Neen and the Making of Art Today,” “Video Art in Germany” and “Collecting Digital & Video Art.” Moderators Elga Wimmer and Simon Watson have invited private collectors, museum curators and artists specialized in the field. More information will be available on the website. You will receive an email on the details as well.

Germany Invited Country
Following the success of DIVA Cologne, Frere Independent will welcome German galleries as special guests. With the assistance of our partner in Germany, we will hold offices there locally in order to communicate in the same time zone and language. As part of this feature, a section of the DiVA NY catalogue will be dedicated to video art in Germany, and a panel discussion will showcase this work as well.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
