Hyperallergic launches #ArtTalk Series in 2013 featuring Klaus Biesenbach, AA Bronson, Carlos Motta, & RoseLee Goldberg

Screen Shot 2013-10-29 at 10.51.50 AMThis last spring, Hyperallergic launched a new series of talks  in which leaders from the NY art world discuss their creative projects and endeavors in an open dialogue with readers. The series has so far included:

  • Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1, and Chief Curator at large at The Museum of Modern Art
  • AA Bronson, co-founder of General Idea, and artist Carlos Motta
  • RoseLee Goldberg, Founder & Director of Performa, and author of Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present

Klaus Biesenbach discussed Expo 1: New York, an exhibition that was largely a response to the devastating events of Hurricane Sandy. Artists AA Bronson and Carlos Motta presented on ‘The Body, Spirit, Sex, Community, Magic and the Other’. The pair discussed the role of eroticism and sensuality in art, with Bronson modestly ruminating on the fact that his practice continues to inspire successive generations of artists. At the most recent talk, RoseLee Goldberg, discussed her passion for performance art, discussing both its history and evolution.

Held at The Bedford in Williamsburg, the reaction to the series was overwhelming, with tickets to all three events sold out in advance. The event hashtag #ArtTalk invited it’s share of praise and humor. Following the popular success of Art Talk, Hyperallergic plans to continue and expand the series. So stay tuned for further announcements!

Nectar Ads Featured on Econsultancy

Econsultancy, a leading resource for digital marketing and ecommerce, recently featured Nectar Ads as one of five “newly emergent models of revenue generation being pursued by [digital media] organizations.”

We joined the elite company of the New York Times, Vice magazine, crowd-produced news aggregator Hacker News Monthly and PDF-based publication The New Inquiry in their post.

This is what blogger Sam Dwyer had to say about Nectar:

3) Nectar Ads: A specialized ad network for specialized content sites

Nectar Ads is an online advertising network that specializes in the visual arts, and works almost exclusively with New York City based open-access art blogs, such as Hyperallergic, Colossal, Art Fag City, Two Coats of Paint, and Rhizome, which is affiliated with the New Museum.

Working with these blogs, Nectar has a acquired a “Highly Targeted & Influential Audience” that it connects to “Well Vetted and Curated Sponsors.” That is to say, not every advertiser is welcomed, in order to preserve the credibility of the participating publications.

We’re so happy to be part of the new breed of marketing companies exploring the burgeoning field of online advertising and ensuring that online publications can continue to do what they do best, publishing great content.
