Hi, i’m currently restyling this Tumblr because i’d love to make it my own “diary” and talk about art, possibly exchanging ideas with you guys.
THIS IS SO CONTEMPORARY is an ambitious art project born in 2008 under the guise of a blog with its first interview to the american artist Gary Baseman, since that day i’ve never stopped to deal with artists and people who have my same passion.
On the winter of 2009 THIS IS SO CONTEMPORARY has become a page on Facebook and today it counts more than 17,000 followers and 30 contributors/artists that have chosen us to show their art.
Because we love what we do we’re very careful to share the best art by putting all the informations available under each post. In order to give more visibility to the artists that joined the project from the inside (it means that they’re administrators of the page) we’ve created one album for each with the purpose to give to our followers an overview of their artworks. The artists/admins personally update their own album every time they have something new to show.
Another special feature of THIS IS SO CONTEMPORARY’s Facebook page are the thematic albums. Indeed, we thought about giving people the chance to easily “navigate” our page by creating different folders containing different kinds of art: STREET ART, MIXED MEDIA ART | SCULPTURES, ILLUSTRATIONS | DRAWINGS, PAINTINGS | PRINTS, etc.
I want to share with you one last thing that is a new page on Facebook called TISCONNECTION. In this case we wanted people to interact with us. For a long time we’ve been created awareness around our favorite art, now, with just one click you can access to an OPEN SOURCE ART page and share whatever you want (your or other’s art) at any time, being supported by our main page (THIS IS SO CONTEMPORARY) and have the opportunity to be posted on it! To give even more value to those who are sharing their art with us on TISCONNECTION we’ve recently created an album - called TISCONNECTORS - including all our favorite submissions.
The best is yet to come, stay tuned.
