<nettime-ann> Fwd: Dispatx Commissions Program


(Barcelona, 26/04/2007) Dispatx Art Collective announced today the inauguration of a commissions program for the creation of original work. The inaugural commission award consists of two commissions of between 750 and 2000 euros in the categories of Photography and Sculpture.

From 2004, Dispatx Art Collective (www.dispatx.com) has worked with emerging and established artists investigating the creative method – the organising process that translates creative vision into creative output. Dispatx is now a leading curatorial platform developing and presenting contemporary art and literature.

With over 100 published projects in six themed collections - comprising well over 2000 pages of original content – Dispatx Art Collective will continue to develop and investigate creative and curatorial practice via the commissions program for the creation of original work. Every six months we will commission between two and five projects investigating the theme in exploration.

For the eighth collection the theme is Appropriation in Creative Practice, with a particular focus on the use of developed ideas and theories as a material across different artistic disciplines. This theme will be developed between July and December 2007.

The commissions are privately funded by contemporary art collectors and may lead to long-term patronage or representation.
