Every year for
50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery has held its "Open Call" exhibit where
any artist can show up with their art and an entry fee (to benefit gallery
programs) and the piece is shown. The Los Angeles Center For Digital Art
decided to launch an international experiment of the same nature where the
artists upload images that are printed and hung by the gallery. The
hundreds of works are displayed in a grid like installation (reminiscent
of postcard art shows of the 1980's) where every work submitted is
exhibited. The usual (less than democratic) selection process where only
the precious few are chosen is turned on its head in a curatorial anarchy
where everyone gets to participate and the viewer is literally left to be
the judge. The show represents a snapshot of a current moment in art
history when digital imaging has reached the hands of the many, an age
where culture belongs to the "mobblogers" around the globe. From Thailand
to Texas, amateur to academic, beautiful to banal and beyond the
monumental quantity and variety of "Snap to Grid" becomes an aesthetic
experience where each individual piece adds to an agglomerative effect
that has a life of its own.
