Talking Art

Not content with simply making art, several local artists have produced art zines and presented them last month at the art fairs in Miami.

Four former VCU art students, including adjunct professor Tom Condon, helped put together Art Disk, a DVD magazine with short segments of video art and commentary from artists and curators. If you missed the screening at the Miami DIVA Digital Video Art Fair, you can find info about it at www.artdiskdvd.com and purchase the disk for $5 at photoeye.com/booklist.

John Henry Blatter and Derek Cote, two sound artists and sculptors, put out a zine called Daily Constitutional, which features artists taking back the forum and writing about art themselves. The third issue was distributed at the Scope Art Fair in Miami and can be found at www.dailyconstitutional.org.

Blatter and Cote also had two sound installations at Scope. One was a large crate visitors had to walk through to get to the fair. In that tunnel, the words New York were repeated over and over again until they became a jumble, appropriate commentary for the overwhelming experience of the fairs.
