|This site is housing more and more artists and representations of their projects in the 'real' world. This has proven very exciting for all of us, a chance to build contexts of association that may not be being made in the 'real' world.
Hard to believe how long it has been since this has been updated. Blogs and Facebook have taken over and made hand coding more tedious than anything else. While the site has become an archive of sorts, there are several folks who have given me alternate addresses that I have dutifully linked from the site. As things have changed, I think what has remained is a (now perhaps silent) thread of continuity between all of these artists (myself included) that speaks to a moment in time that will perhaps become relevant again, as all things seem to run in cycles. If you have not been here previously, I think you will be very interested in the art and artists contained. I was in 1997, continue to be in 2009 and expect to be in 2019. As to the future of this site, who knows?
Please visit Gean Moreno's site as it has been updated with work from 2004.
Sue de Beer has been updating her site in anticipation of several new projects in the works. We look forward to them!
Another welcome is needed for Rachel Foullon, who has just been added to the site. A sculptor with an acute sense of scale and material, we here welcome her with excitement!
The fall is pending and with that change of season comes the new season in the art universe. Everyone here has projects pending and we will shortly be posting these activities.
We are happy to have a new member of the sevenseven site, please welcome sculptor Jennifer Cohen to our ranks by visiting her site.
Also, sevenseven veteran Allison Smith has radically updated her site with a wealth of work and context spanning several years. Hooray!
On the updates front, Jesse Bransford, Ian Cooper, Sue deBeer, John Espinosa, Keith Mayerson and Adam Putnam, have all updated their sites recently.
We have several things to report! Firstly, Matt Greene, a sevenseven veteran, has updated his site with some of the most amazing work we have seen here. Be sure also to read his alter ego's statetment, a word of pending doom from Agathis.
We also must welcome John Espinosa to the site. A sculptor we here have come to love, Espinosa's work has a brooding and mysterious quality that cannot be ignored. Welcome John!
And last but certainly not least we welcome Keith Mayerson to the site. We here have been great admirers of Mayersons work for several years now and are honored to have him with the group.
On the 'real' world front, please look for shows from several of us in the next year.
Sue deBeer is a participant in this year's Whitney Biennial, and is also participating in several shows around, including the Brooklyn Museum and Anton Kern Gallery In New York.
Matt Greene has a two person show at peres projects in Los Angeles as well as a solo show later in the year. Mr. Greene is also in the show at Anton Kern in New York with Ms. deBeer, opening mid-January.
Lorenzo De Los Angeles and Jesse Bransford have a suite of collaborations opening in early January at Feature Inc. in New York.
Jesse Bransford has a show at Feature Inc. opeining in late February.
Adam Putnam is having an exhibition of his 'Magic Lanterns' at Artist's Space in New York that opens in mid-janurary.
Gean Moreno has a show at Fred Snitzer Gallery in the spring.
Finally, several sevenseven folks are in a group show in Miami at Ingalls and Associates, Lorenzo De Los Angeles, Matt Greene and Adam Putnam, a show curated by our own Gean Moreno. The show opens in late January.
I am sure I have omitted several things, but the humble editor can only remember so many details! Congrats to all and have a great new year!
As we here at sevenseven hoped, the roster is increasing!
Please welcome Seth Kelly and Mike Paré to sevenseven.com by visiting their new sites. Both are great artists and have contributed volumes of information and context for their work. I have high hopes that there will be further expansion in the near future. Enjoy.
Recent updates in this vein are Ian Cooper, who in addition to collaborating with Sue de Beer on the Goth referenced 'Corpsers' project has contributed a sampling of his very interesting project (welcome aboard Ian!).
Also new to the gang is Gean Moreno, well known artist/critic from Miami. Presently we have a sampling of his art project, with the expectation that other items from his projects will be on the way. Miami in the House!!
Both Lorenzo De Los Angeles and Adam Putnam (Veteran sevenseven folks since the beginning way back in '97) have updated their personal sites, and I strongly recommend that everyone have a look.
Jesse Bransford (yours truly) and Sue de Beer have both had the documentation bug for the last year, updating and updating in a monomaniacial fashion. There are plenty of things to see for sure.
If things continue to blossom as they have in the last three months sevenseven.com will double in content and variety. Let's see what happens...
Apologies for the down-time last week to those that noticed or have given a second try. A bit of advice to those looking for webspace - Interlaint.com is not a good choice (they can pull us for all I care). Their tech service is not good, nor is the customer support. . . I could go on and on. If you know of good web hosting services, please contact us - we're definitely in the market.
Again, we apologise for the no show for the last few days.
Best, -the Editor
Quite a bit has happened since the last update, unfortunately so little of it has to do with this project. Progress has been made, however, and I am glad to have the Quake project online, a project that will surely expand as both participants are completely obsessed. . .
Otherwise, here are some other places I hope you will enjoy:
www.animalstories.net, home of the seminal magazine devoted to the other creatures of the planet, Animal Stories Magazine
www.ps1.org, home of the "Greater NY" show, shocasing many of NY's young artists (the bit os shameless promotion)
Finally the site has been redesigned. We have comitted one of my biggest gripes about home-run sites - while they may be interesting, it's often not worth bookmarking them because they never change. Alas, sevenseven.com is GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY! Until now. With the new site in place, the second project begun, and our resources expanded, sevenseven.com should supply sites and sounds galore in the coming months (until, that is, the The Phantom Menace comes out. . .)
