Anne Spalter (@annespalter / http://annespalter.com/) is a Digital mixed-media artist. Our conversation today, just like the intro of Feisworld Podcast, crosses the boundaries between business, art and the digital world.
Anne is an academic pioneer who founded the original digital fine arts programs at Brown University and The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in the 1990s. In her studio practice, Anne uses custom software to transform source footage—captured by her during multi-sensory experiences such as walking through an open-air flower market in Bangkok, dangling from a helicopter over downtown Dubai—into kaleidoscopic, algorithmically manipulated Modern Landscapes. Her work, Miami Marbles will mark the entrance to the annual contemporary exhibition at PULSE Miami Beach (December 1-4, 2016).
Anne's work is housed in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo, NY; the Rhode Island School of Design Museum in Providence.
Anne's work and her ambition as an artist and an an educator extends much beyond herself. She has dedicated so much of her career to help young and experienced artists excel in their art careers. She has given talks and presentations at art institutions in the US and around the world. She spent six years working on a book called The Computer in the Visual Arts. Anne joined the Board of Arts Business Initiative (ABI) at New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA)
Did you know? NYFA (@nyfacurrent) hosts a free #ArtistHotline--every 3rd Wednesday of the month? Together with husband Michael Spalter, they created the Spalter Digital Art Collection that has lent to institutions such as the V&A Museum in London and the MoMA in New York.
I hope you enjoy this episode. If any of your family, friends who are artists and could benefit from Anne's knowledge, please share her wisdom and start a conversation. We believe that through the right channels and support networks, many artists can be successful artistically and financially.
