SITEGEIST II – L’ESPRIT DES LIEUX

[Hiver 2014]
New works created for the first Ciel variable fund-raising campaign following the first section of works published in the issue 94 of the magazine, in May 2013

This campaign is based on the idea of bringing together a collector and a photographer to create an original artwork on the theme “the spirit of a place” – a place interpreted by the artist. The exercise offers a unique opportunity for collectors to learn about an artist’s creative approach and to discuss how the artist would read and interpret the chosen site to integrate it into his or her creative world. This project offers collectors a chance to be active participants in a creative process.

The funds raised will be used to sustain development of the magazine, especially on the digital level. Our current projects involve dissemination of the magazine on virtual newsstands, extending our social media activities, and offering new content adapted to the digital universe. Already, our Web sites have been adapted for tablets and mobile devices and a digital version of the magazine is available to our subscribers. New developments will be unveiled in the near future.

Our heartfelt thanks go to the collectors, artists, and gallery owners, as well as to our campaign partner ENCADREX, for their support for our initiative.
