Announcing FRAMEWORLD

A new quarterly exhibition program by CODAME aims to enable artists to respond to our rapidly shifting realities.

When: Opening June 24th, 2021 @ 12pm (noon) (PST)

Where: World Wide Web, RSVP for opening event

Who: Artists to be announced soon, in the meantime we have a call for artist, apply!

What: Artwork to be announced soon, also available for sale.

In the light of the current global crises, this new initiation consolidates our commitment to creating space for our community to explore and reflect through creative, technological and critical means with a faster cadence.

The first exhibition of the series is web-specific and establishes a focus on the discourses around creating a multiplicity of locality, understanding of the new international and transcultural solidarity in the times of extreme precarity. It aims to explore the idea of hybrid embodiments while engaging with the continuity between digital and physical.

  • How can we make use of the current concept of temporality to revisit the dominant narratives of progress, linear organizations of time, and ways of framing the world? 

  • How do we revisit the ideas of borders and boundaries and work together to find ways of renegotiating how one moves through the world? 

  • How do we reflect on closeness and proximity while investigating the intangible connections between the virtual and geographical nature of space? 

  • How can we explore common horizons and new forms of collectivity and solidarity to build frameworks for a world that has yet to exist? 

Our open call invites works that critically engage with the present, embrace the notions of urgency, and propose alternative approaches to current disruptions, reflecting on what interconnectedness and new modes of collectivity look like now. We invite artists from all backgrounds, especially the ones who are new to the digital space, to submit works that leverage the potential of website specificity.
