This Week’s Project Updates:
- B/W artists book:
Last Saturday, Munich Artists started a project for an artist’s book focusing on black and white ink on paper. The artists have now collected their supplies and are in the process of making their art pieces. As the weeks go by, I will share more images of the artwork.
- Long Night Of the Museum Connected Installation:
The centrepiece of our installation is a zoetrope which now has a physical form thanks to the Werkbox 3. I will be picking up the skeleton for the zoetrope today and will post an image next week of the finished piece. Katrin Vogl is currently at the space working on her sculpture and our floor stickers will be printed next week.
If you want to take a peek at what we are doing, you are welcome to stop by and see. We will be at Frauenstrasse 18 M-F from 830 until 1600 until October 16th.
- Free Art Friday Munich
Katrin Klug has been putting her small pieces out every friday. Last week, Katrin left a piece of art in a cafe and it was snatched up! If you decide to participate in Free art Friday, please do not to put your art in a store or someplace difficult for people to reach. If you do put outwork out for Free Art Friday, please let us know so we can write about it on the Free Art Friday Munich Facebook Page and on the Free Art Friday Munich Blog. On new media, we share where each piece of art can be found and the artist’s name if they want to share it.
- New Projects:
- 1. Artists book with Brigitte Pruchnow. We have set down the parameters for the book and the project will begin in January 2015. This is a unique project and may turn into a series. The project will be open to all Munich/Bavarian artists but you cannot apply. each artist is picked by the artist before them. I will only be choosing artists if we end up getting stuck because an artist did not finish their art piece in the designated time. If you are a Munich artist you may submit your name to the list of standby artists but I can’t promise that you will be picked. I will post the name of the artists as they complete their art piece and show on a map where they are located. This way you can see how the project is working its way around the city and how the artists decide who to pick as the next artist in the chain of artwork.
- 2. Artists book/zine with Andreas Hirsch. This project is starting in November 2014. It is open to illustrators and writers. I must meet you before I will put you on the team. We are looking for visual artists who love to think outside of the box, have their own illustrative style that is not Manga related and flows well with the other artists involved. For Writers, we are looking for writers interested in a magazine/zine/graphic novel and able to write flash fiction that translates well into English. All the artists for this book series must want to work in a group, must be able to meet deadlines, and must be interested in long term group project. We are looking for a group of like minded artists with a sense of humour so that the project stays fun and professional. We want the first product from this group to leave the nest in March 2015.
