NEW YORK—Dot Dash 3 will be launching its innovative online art platform on January 29, 2013. This multifaceted platform gives artists and curators an unprecedented ability to stage cohesive exhibitions of artworks in an online gallery setting and reach art enthusiasts around the world. Referring to the word “Art” written in Morse code, the name Dot Dash 3 pays homage to Samuel Morse, a communication technology pioneer and an accomplished painter, whose inventions allowed people to transmit information across great distances.
“Our goal is to engage artists, curators, and audiences in meaningful discourse and discovery of art uninhibited by spatial and temporal boundaries.” says Larisa Leventon, founder and creator of Dot Dash 3.
Using cutting-edge, patent-pending visualization technology, Dot Dash 3 provides visitors with an unmatched immediacy of experience. The site’s features include effortless and intuitive navigation, dynamic views of artworks, seamless integration of multimedia editorial content, and a streamlined purchasing process.
The Dot Dash 3 technology is highly customizable and configurable and will be made available to organizations and institutions who wish to communicate proprietary content to their own constituents.
Dot Dash 3 challenges a common belief that good art is not affordable or that investment-worthy art costs millions. The site launches with six solo exhibitions and one group show, with artworks offered in the price range from $300 to $12,000. Dot Dash 3’s careful selection process was guided by a number of independent curatorial advisors, including Nathalie Anglès and Boshko Boskovic from Residency Unlimited, a non-profit organization which will host artists sponsored by the Dot Dash 3 Art Fund initiative. Dot Dash 3 will continue inviting independent international curators to advise on the selection process for future exhibitions.
Artists, such as Davide Balliano, whose work is currently showcased on Dot Dash 3, are enthusiastic about the new platform. “As the boundaries between known and knowable, tangible and ephemeral fall daily, this platform expands the potential of artistic practice,” says Mr. Balliano, “Anything imaginable is now virtually possible and, therefore, real.”
Dot Dash 3 Art Fund
Dot Dash 3 is committed to advancing contemporary art and supporting emerging artists. A percentage from every artwork purchase will be designated for this purpose. In 2013, Dot Dash 3 will direct these funds to support artist residencies in New York. Artists who are selected as recipients will participate in the Residency Unlimited (RU) program. Each Dot Dash 3 artist in residency will benefit from RU's customized support for a period of three months.
