The Water Tank Project

About The Water Tank Project from The Water Tank Project on Vimeo.

 The fact that art can engage social matters and that serves the community to address major issues is not new. Many artists work to emphasize, underline, discuss and interpret problems that affect the society. From Banksy to Ai Wei Wei, from Santiago Sierra to Alfredo Jaar, Felix Gonzales Torres and Jean-Claude and Christo, the list can go on for a while.

For just the length of this article, we would like to take you out of New York. If you travel enough from the busy skyline and the never-sleeping street, you may find yourself in Gārâna, small town located in the Western region of Romania. Surrounded by green hills and forests, the town looks exactly like you would imagine a small Romanian town to look like: old churches and ordered white houses. This summer Inas Al-Soqi, blog co-founder and terrific artist, actually took this trip and spent some time in the small Gārâna for a residency program with the Arthouse Wolfsberg organization.

ConArtist Collective

 

 

Against an abundant flow of theories that push us to open our minds, to rethink boundaries and rules, and to change perspective, the new show at ConArtist Collective suggests a rather old fashioned vision. Thinking Inside The Box introduces the work of five artists who interpreted the exhibition’s title quite literally; therefore many among the pieces reinstate physical boundaries in the form of boxes.

Artist #4: Darin Cohen

4th August 2014

Darin Cohen

The Vernissage is happy to announce the release of a new documentary presenting the artist Darin Cohen.

A graduate from The School of The Museum Of Fine Arts in Boston, Darin is a painter that works from existing images and elaborates them through abstract form. The choice of abstraction as his language comes from the endless possibilities he finds in it. Our portrait of this young and talented artist presents our public with the opportunity of an intimate conversation with Darin were he explains his passion, his work and what stands behind it.

Check it out and enjoy!
