Artists Meeting Art Machine at Pulse Miami 2009

At Pulse Miami 2009, New York-based art group Artists Meeting presented Artists Meeting’s Art Machine, a hacked together custom fine art dispensing device inspired by self-service kiosks, Japanese automats, slot machines, ATM’s, juke boxes, shopping malls and carnival games. Artists Meeting Art Machine at random dispenses an assortment of custom made objects and drawings via a $20 token operated system of mechanical and digital modules embedded in a 10 x 8 foot transparent wall. Artists Meeting members have created art objects such as t-shirts, DVDs, digital prints, photo books, and other small artworks for this project, including over 300 feet of collaborative mixed media drawing.

In this video, Artists Meeting member G.H Hovagimyan, talks about the idea behind the Artists Meeting Art Machine and tells us how the machine works.

VernissageTV Art TV Studio and Screening Program at Open Space / Art Cologne 2009

This video provides you with some atmospheric shots of VernissageTV’s studio at Art Cologne 2009. With this look back at Art Cologne 2009 we would like to thank the artists, their galleries, the Open Space and Art Cologne teams and everyone who helped to make this project such a success.

In a cooperation with Art Cologne, VernissageTV art tv covered the 43rd Art Cologne that took place in Cologne, Germany from 22nd to 26th April 2009. Like in 2008, VernissageTV’s open studio and screening area was located in the Lounge area of the OPEN SPACE section in Hall 11.3 of the fair.
VernissageTV provided its viewers with atmospheric shots from the fair, recordings of art talks, and in-depth interviews with artists, curators and dealers. The program has been shown on VernissageTV’s web site and its partner channels and in the Lounge area of the fair itself.

Apart from the Art Cologne coverage, VernissageTV presented a video art program. The program included art videos by Matthew Green (represented by Fette’s Gallery), G.H. Hovagimyan (with Christina McPhee, represented by Silverman Gallery), Lisa Kirk, Magdalena von Rudy (represented by Galerie Gillian Morris), The Krasnals, and Heinz Sandoza, 高鼻子 gāo bízi and Lars from Trier (represented by gallery MyVisit). The program was set up like a TV channel with documentaries and feature films, interrupted by what at first glance looks like TV advertising and movie trailers. In addition to that we gave a preview of VernissageTV’s upcoming Videophile Series. The Videophile Series are a collection of videos that are specially edited for this series and are in High Definition resolution. One of the videos we showed in Cologne is Alexandra Bachzetsis’ performance Gold at Kunsthalle Basel.

One of the highlights was the European premiere of the new media video art work Plazaville by G.H. Hovagimyan (with Christina McPhee). Plazaville premiered on April 7, 2009 at Pace Digital Gallery, New York. The work is based on the classic 1965 movie Alphaville by Jean Luc Godard. For more information about the screening program’s artists and works click here (pdf-file).

Art Cologne 2009, Cologne / Germany. April 21 – 26, 2009.

G.H. Hovagimyan / Interview / part 4/4

In the fourth and last part of the interview G.H. Hovagimyan talks about: the art market; the art scene in New York and how the times have changed since the 70s; art fairs; and the next wave of community.
After the interview there’s a work sample of a project by G.H. Hovagimyan in development, Assembled Cinema. “You walk into a room and a film/video is projected on a wall.  The scenes played are not in any particular order yet they make sense. What occurs is that a computer is picking sequences in a random order and playing them. Your mind and your imagination fill in the story.” Cast: Lindsey Roberts, Randy Noojin, G.H. Hovagimyan. Camera: Kate McCamy.
VernissageTV also recommends to have a look at the “HD_Rants, broadcast quality high definition video works done in collaboration with Brian Ciazza.
