We’re all feeling it, the slow days at home merging into one another, the dance of distance when we finally can, or must, get out for a bit…but…
WHERE’S MY ART????
Yes, life handed us lemons, so we made Lemonade… an evolving art fair you can visit anytime, anywhere…
The “Saving Spring” concept was hatched by Art511 editor and curator Linda DiGusta as a response to what has basically been the cancellation of the art season in New York. “The community is so vibrant and interactive, totally the opposite of the current experience of forced isolation” she says, ‘That it was inconceivable to let all that creative and social stimulation just slip away…and it broke my heart hearing on social media about all the “lost” shows that had been planned by the artists and galleries. Of course art is out there online, but was there a way to keep us even a bit closer, and in front of collectors and the media, while maintaining social distance?”
The answer was already in place, as Linda has been collaborating since last year with Scotto Mycklebust, publisher of Art511 and founder of Public Art Squad, on a program of podcasts.
The technology was cooperative, and The Lemonade Art Fair went live on Spreaker.com as well as Art511mag.com, with links to travel from one to the other that are WAY quicker than those art fair buses.
How does that work with a magazine? Like this:
Listen to “Episode 3 – “Saving Spring” – The Lemonade Art Fair” on Spreaker.
Like any Art Fair, saving “Saving Spring” will feature special events, including an interactive Facebook event at launch, a virtual vernissage on what would have been Frieze Week, and guest performances to be announced. The Lemonade Art Fair will also host a special guest post from May perennial Fridge Art Fair, which had postponed until late 2020. Updates will be posted in our Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/lemonadeartfair. To exhibit or join the email list, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
