"temperature/ artists from the flat file”
curated by Andreis Costa
exhibition: March 18th - April 16th, 2005.
Opening Reception: March 18th, 2005, from 2- 4pm
"Temperature" will focus on the measure of heat within contemporary art.
Hot and cold, energy and pace as shown through multiple mediums and artistic disciplines. "Temperature/artists from the flat file" is a group show intended to extend and develop the:artist: network's flat-file and online digital archive.
The exhibition works in symbiosis with the digital archive, each complimenting the other.
March 2004 saw the inauguration of the project at the:artist: network with "mace2 / artists from the flat file" and consisted of 50 artist portfolios from the flat file and digital archives. the:artist: network keeps flat files on site which houses work for future exhibits, curators, and collectors. The Curatorial Pool is a catalog of flat files, online digital images, slides, film, and video documenting the work of established and emerging artists and will function as an open platform for exposing both for future shows and collections.
