Art Opening Oxide Gallery Denton Texas

Artist Interview: Joey Seeman

What is your name:
Joey Seeman

Do you have a formal art education or are you a self taught artist:

I'm mostly self-taught

What is the style of your pieces:
I consider them to be both Pop and Contemporary

What is the medium in which you work:
I use acrylics and ink on wood panels

What started you on your path as an artist:
I've been creating art since I was in 7th grade, but my style really gelled around 1992 when I moved to South Beach and was exposed to some of the artists working there.

What is one of the most important things that art has brought to your life:
Art has given me a purpose and direction. It keeps me off the streets!

What is your favorite genre of art besides the one you work in:
Right now I'd have to say that artist working on vinyl toys and figures are my favorite.

Do you have art showings, and if so what are they typically like:
I've had 4 shows this year! My shows are typically a mix of interesting looking people, curiosity seekers and snooty art-types.

Do you have a certain set of clothes you make art in:
Not really, no.

What has been the most frustrating part of being an artist?
I think what frustrates me most is that Dallas doesn't truly embrace it's own art scene. Look at the Dallas Observer for example; there's no gallery listings or support of the arts at all in their pages anymore. There's a good number of talented artists working here, but very little coverage of their exhibits. (We will cover any event you want us too-- and we list calls to artists every day -- check the right side of the page)

What is your favorite sandwich of all time:
Rueben from Wolf's Deli, NYC.

Has this year brought about any changes in your work, and if so what are they:
I've refined my style and produced a lot more than usual this year. I think I've finally hit my groove.

Who is your favorite artist alive or dead:
I'll take one of each. Michael Hussar is my favorite living painter. For the non-living, I'd have to pick Tomata du Plenty who was my early mentor, if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be doing this.

What is the most moving piece of artwork that you have seen in person:
Anselm Kieffer at the Modern in Fort Worth.

Do you have any animals, and what do they think of your work:

Do you have any upcoming exhibitions you would like to share with us:
This Friday, July 2nd in Austin, TX at Rio Rita's I'll be debuting my Cholas Por Vida series. And my Rock n' Roll Fantasy show will be on view at Dear Clark Studios on McKinney through September 9th.

Call to Arts TEDxSMU Dallas

Deadline for Submissions: Friday, July 9, 2010, 5:00 PM CDT
Starting Now! TEDxSMU is issuing a Request for Proposals for artists/artist teams interested in being a creative catalyst at TEDxSMU 2010. Open to artists, architects and designers of all types, we invite you to send us your ideas for a performance, installation or interactive-based project that will open our imaginations and create a dialogue between our two signature events: TEDxKids @SMU on Oct. 15, 2010 and TEDxSMU on Oct. 16, 2010.

Overview and Project Goals
TEDxSMU is currently planning its second series of ideas conferences around the theme “Starting Now.” The conferences incorporate dynamic and passionate presentations across a range of topics, this year centered on issues related to human survival. Creative performances, robust breaks and an energetic audience add to the mix that makes these events unique.
This year’s conferences will take place at Dallas’ new Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre – on the one year anniversary of its opening. TEDxKids @SMU is a half-day conference for 7th and 8th grade students (approximately 400 students + chaperones, speakers and sponsors), and TEDxSMU is a full day conference for attendees who have gone through an application process to be admitted.
One of the primary goals of the conference is to spark conversations about important ideas or issues. The organization’s steering committee firmly believes in the importance of creativity and creative expression as a driver for new ideas and innovation. As an extension of that belief, we have committed to commissioning a local North Texas artist or artist collaborative to create a piece to engage the audience at the Dallas TEDx events.

Artists are asked to propose projects that will be fully unveiled at the events on October 15-16, 2010; however, we will consider projects that have a visibility element leading up to the event and, if part of the selected project, will work with the artist to find an appropriate location. In keeping with the nature of this project, TEDxSMU encourages innovation and experimentation. Proposals are sought for three categories: interactive/community engagement, large scale temporary installation, and performance [artists can propose any combination of the three, however must only submit under one category].
Artists are particularly encouraged to consider projects that allow the audiences of the two separate events to “speak” to each other or somehow create dialogue between the two events.

Eligible artists must be 18 years or older and reside within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Please Note: The selected artists/artist teams must be available to begin design work immediately (early August 2010) and complete the work for installation in mid-October. Artists/artist teams must also be available to manage installation on the artwork on October 14, 2010 and de-installation on October 16, 2010 following the conclusion of the TEDx conference.

The project limit for the winning proposal is $7,500. In addition there will be a $1,500 honorarium. Budgets should include design, fabrication, installation, structural drawings, engineering, insurance requirements, and documentation.

Any modifications (painting or construction) made by artists must be approved by TEDxSMU and the AT&T Performing Arts Center in advance, and must be removed upon completion of the installation period. The site must not be permanently changed, altered or damaged due to the installation, and liability for reasonably foreseeable and preventable damages to the property will be the sole responsibility of the artist.

In order to be considered the artist must deliver a complete application with all the required components. Selection criteria will be based on:

Art Below / Art Barter Collaboration in Berlin
Art Below have just launched their latest public art campaign in the German capital of Berlin, this time in collaboration with the unique and revolutionary group Art Barter.
Revolutionary, resourceful and truly avant-garde in spirit, Art Barter and Art Below have, in each other, found their perfect playmate. Art Barter boasts a fresh, engaging approach to the sometime elitist art world, proving that Art can be a resource that money cannot buy.
On 24th June we kicked off with Art Barter’s exclusive Alexanderplatz launch party followed by Art Below’s 2 week long exhibition on 10 public pillars displaying Berlin’s hottest established and emerging artists, including Jonathan Monk, Jason Dodge and Uwe Henneken.
Co-inciding beautifully with Berlin’s 6th Biennale for Contemporary Art, this summer promises to only further establish the city’s reputation as a creative melting pot.

Our Shoot Nations project, celebrating it's 5th anniversary, is live this week - it's a photography project where we give young people (aged 11 to 25) a voice for expression on this year's global theme of CITY LIFE/urbanisation which are then presented to the highest form of government, the United Nations in a ceremony in New York in August.

The project includes a photography competition element, exhibitions and workshops in seven global cities, including a two month long exhibition in the lobby of the United Nations secretariat building in New York for two months starting in August.

The UK winner of the competition will receive an all expenses paid trip to New York to present winning and commended photos to the United Nations on International Youth Day, August 12. There are other prizes for global winners too!

In particular, we are trying to encourage participation in the photography competition element at the moment which closes on 28 July - I must stress, it's a very inclusive project and is aimed at everybody, not just photographers, but especially photographers..
We are encouraging anyone and everyone to use photography as a tool for expression and communication.

You can see the commended list so far here -
Thank you.

52 – 54 Bell Street
Painter, Poet, Lighthouse Keeper presents a series of new works, created by Rodney Graham specifically for Lisson Gallery. One of the most original and influential artists of his generation, Graham has constructed a complex and articulate practice which operates through systems of quotation, reference, adaptation and inscription from other works or authors. Here the artist draws from sources as diverse as structural film, Mallarmé's poetry, British zombie movies, and 19th century French military painting to create a kaleidoscopic exhibition combining works in photography, film and painting.

Jonathan Monk and Douglas Gordon
Double Act Repeated
23 June – 31 July 2010
29 Bell Street

Lisson Gallery is proud to present a new exhibition by Jonathan Monk and Douglas Gordon. Double Act Repeated is a collaborative project comprised of four films, an opening-night performance and a series of new works created specifically for the exhibition. As artists Monk and Gordon share an interest in exploring the creative act as an intuitive process rooted in the history of Conceptual Art. As friends they share a passion for found images, football, word-play and the belief that the best ideas are generated around the dining table.

About the artists:
Jonathan Monk (1969, Leicester) and Douglas Gordon (1966, Glasgow) met for the first time in 1990 when both were studying fine art in Glasgow. There first meeting either took place at back-stage at a Miles Davis concert or while watching England lose to Germany on penalties.

The films formed the basis of an exhibition at the Fondazione Morra Greco in Naples in 2009 and are presented in London for the first time.
