AVAILABLE ART in LEEDS / UK
In February we were invited to deliver a lecture about Available Art at the University of Leeds, School of Design. In adition, we conducted a workshop about "Art for Games" for the students of the Design Department.
AVAILABLE ART 3 AWAY
The third edition of Available Art took place in Krakow, at the gallery Camelot in July/August 2006. For the first time the exhibition was focused on a special topic: 77 artists from various countries presented photography, paintings, graphic prints, designed objects, jewellery, books (etc..) concerning the theme travelling, moving and absence.
Several special events were included in the show: the Danish artist Klavs Weiss performed his "Ball Print Project" in the streets around the gallery. Weiss rode a specially designed bike, on which he installed a wooden frame with a blank paper. He placed on it a small ball, covered with ink, which itself drew a graphic print and created a citation of the ride.
The Finish-Italian artist couple, known as Moana Liekki, presented two T-Shirt workshops - visitors could create their own T-Shirt by using specially prepared stencils. (Special thanks to our partners: The companies "House", "Cezex" and "Talens")
At the "Game Day" visitors could play various artist-games, including the giant board-game "Mess-age" by the Polish artists Pawel Mendrek, Ewa Zasada and Gosia Szandala.
ART FOR GAMES
In April 2006 Available Art was invited to take part in the 18th Independent Art Festival in Sint Niklaas (Belgium). For the festival theme of "interactivity", we curated an exhibition under the title "Art for Games". 15 artists from Poland, Germany, Austria, Portugal, Italy and Finland designed art that could be played with. A presentation of the event and the exhibited games can be dowloaded below.
