ARTPIX 2: Ultralounge and Color Fields


ARTPIX, a not-for-profit CD-ROM journal of contemporary art published twice annually, announces the publication of ARTPIX 2, featuring two group exhibitions: Ultralounge: The Return of Social Space (with Cocktails), curated by Dave Hickey, and Colorfields: Now and Then, curated by David Pagel.
The exhibition, Ultralounge: The Return of Social Space (with Cocktails) curated by Las Vegas-based art and culture critic Dave Hickey, was first presented at DiverseWorks in Houston, Texas, in 1998 and at the Contemporary Art Museum of the University of South Florida, Tampa, in early 2000. The exhibition consists of new works by eleven artists from Los Angeles and Las Vegas who work in various mediums. The ARTPIX CD-ROM includes a video tour of the exhibition, documentation of the individual artists and their work, an essay by Dave Hickey, commentary on the artists by David Pagel and video footage of invocation by the Rev. Ethan Acres, blessing all of the artists. The artists included in the exhibition are: Phil Argent, Aaron Baker, Tim Bavington, Jane Callister, Cynthia Chan, Jack Hallberg, Wayne Littlejohn, Christine Siemens, Jennifer Steinkamp, Mary Warner and Yek.

Colorfields: Now and Then, curated by David Pagel, is a virtual exhibition contrasting the works of a new generation of artists with the works of an earlier group of "color-field" painters. The seven young artists included in the exhibition are all women, mostly painters, who, with one exception, live and work in Los Angeles. They are Polly Apfelbaum, Linda Besemer, Ingrid Calame, Penelope Krebs, Laura Owens, Monique Prieto and Pae White. In addition to a virtual gallery, the ARTPIX CD-ROM includes an essay by David Pagel, bibliographies and additional works of the young artists and information about the earlier group of "color-field" painters, including Gene Davis, Friedel Dzubas, Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland and Jule Olitski.
