“The new ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (former Database of Virtual Art) goes Web 2.0! Artists, scholars and scientists are invited to actively contribute to the archive and to work collaboratively on the documentation and analysis of digital art.
The ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART has recently undergone an extensive turn in terms of technology and usability: In the course of a relaunch, the already established database and its team aim at evaluating and implementing cutting-edge web tools to align with the expanding needs of artists and scholars. New functionalities will be tested and implemented and will incorporated the invaluable input of a growing number of interested individuals. In return, artists, scholars and the interested public will benefit not only from the extensive efforts in documentation, which are accomplished by the ADA since its beginnings, but also from an improved, collaborative tool that reflects on the multifarious aspects of Digital Art.”
“The 101 Vagina project is looking for artists who would like to bring their art / music / performance / poetry / education to be included in the exhibition space.
Opening days/nights of the exhibition tour will play host to a mini Festival of the Vagina. The idea is to bring together local artists, educators, etc together in vaginal celebration.
The exhibition and event are free for all to attend, though a donation will be sought from attendees to help cover costs like gallery hire etc. 101 Vagina will be covering the cost of the exhibition space etc, so though you may have your work for sale, we ask that you understand that the main focus of the event/exhibition will be the 101 Vagina book and exhibition.
At the various venues I hope to have some spare wall space for art, floor space for sculpture and performance, etc. Some venues are smaller/larger than others, so I need to work with what’s available.
Past events have included:
- vagina crafternoon: make a vagina/vulva out of various crafty materials
- muff muffins: decorate muffins (cup cakes) with toppings
- musicians performing vagina songs
- spoken word and poetry around vaginas and body image in general
- vagina art and sculptures
- Vaginal Mary confessional: confess your sins directly to her living breathing vagina under her nun’s habit
- Speeches by sexuality educators, therapists, politician, plastic surgeon, etc”
[From the Maroondah Art Gallery] “The Girlie Werewolf Hall of Fame presents a sweeping visual survey of the female werewolf throughout the centuries, re-imagined as exquisite reduction linocut portraits by Melbourne-based printmaker Jazmina Cininas. The portraits draw on references as diverse as early modern woodcuts, Baltic folklore, Victorian gothic literature, comics and contemporary cinema, bringing to light the many overlooked yet fascinating narratives of female were-creatures.”
