ArtMUC 2016 – Lets Take A Peek

This year, ArtMUC is organised a little like the magazine.  The artists are divided up by individual artists, art platforms and ARTMUC projects which made it a bit challenging for me when I was digging around the catalogue for names and artists locations on the map.

As I warned after Stroke, the press tour happens early in the day so if artists wanted me to photograph their work, they needed to get their stuff up on the walls for me to see.

Ines Seidel was on the ball and had her area all ready to go.

This year, there are 102 individual artists listed in the catalogue and 19 organisations showing artwork of artists not listed by individual name.  The artists sponsored by organisations do not have their names on the catalogue map, you must know what group they are showing with to find them.  If you liked a piece of artwork that I shared in this post and they are shown as part of a group, I shared the group name with you so you can find the art piece.

ArtMUC -Sculpture network e.V. – Rosali Schweizer – the images on the glass are reflections of the outdoors. I loved how the middle piece kept reflecting the buildings and that is why you see five photos of this piece. The reflections kept changing and you needed to patiently wait as the pieces turned to see this wonderful additional aspect to the piece.

Cendra D. Polsner – Panicroom – Video Environment

Below is an interactive art piece that required you to be involved in a very personal way. Initially when you looked at the piece you saw the words Get or Give. (Two screens)  You must press the button and talk into the microphone to give something.  I didn’t realise you could also visually give something but as you can see in the second photo, I’m busy “giving” words so when the receiver pressed the button, she got me hunched over the microphone telling her to have a happy day.   I liked this piece and could see having the screen on my wall with the other screen in my daughters room. or maybe in place of the intercom system on my house.  Either way, it was one art piece I enjoyed seeing at ArtMUC 2016.

I hope you all Munich Artists have good sales and a positive art fair experience.  The art historian who gave us the tour explained that ArtMUC was about networking but, as we all know,  if we exhibit our work at an art fair, we want to sell it all and go home with full pockets and empty hands so that is my wish for all Munich Artists this weekend.  Come home with your pockets and hearts full and stop by the Friday Gallery and tell me all about your weekend adventure.
