How can artists become better known, particularly if they are underrepresented in the art world? How can artists build community around their work? Should they try to build community online or offline? Those are the topics covered in this week’s cult/tech podcast. Our guests are Jenny Park Adam of ARTDEX and Minkie English, who is a founder of PrintbyPrint Group.
ARTDEX offers a cloud based website and mobile app art archive and management tool, combined with a professional social network platform. It provides an easy-to-use social forum to create and share digital art inventories of both physical and virtual art collections. The ARTDEX platform connects a global community of artists, collectors, curators, and all levels of art professionals and art enthusiasts. In a blog called 40 Years Later, We Still RSVP Yes to Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party, Jenny Park Adam takes a look at the state of acceptance of women in the art world. It’s worth a read.
PrintbyPrint Group works with artists, artisans, event space owners, designers, collectors, galleries, and technological innovators to bridge the divide between the creative world and the technological world. The group is curating interactive experiences for art enthusiasts and emerging collectors and is developing an interactive tool that will engage its audience with the art community in cities around the U.S. and abroad.
Lee Schneider is the interviewer. The cult/tech podcast is produced by Red Cup Agency. It is available on Soundcloud, iTunes, Stitcher, with additional syndication coming soon.
