Ten by Ten and Uber Art in April: Conversational Assemblages


The seed of Ten by Ten blossoms into Uber Art this April. Ten by Ten, now in its third edition, is a portfolio exhibition curated by Uber.com and non-profit art-space LAXART. In its original germinative state the exhibition served as a venue for emerging artists to commingle with art critics for the purpose of review, debate and discussion. In April this communicative functionality is disseminated throughout the arena of Uber Art.

Art critic Shana Nys Dambrot debuted her Uber Art blog in March of 2007; she is now joined by Andrew Berardini. Both writers hail from Los Angeles, but each presents a highly subjective take on contemporary art. Vassar grad Dambrot brings with her a breezy, matter-of-fact style and a body of work that has been published in venues from Modern Painters to Artkrush. CalArts graduate Berardini writes in the style of an acerbic academic, covering topics from Dennis Cooper and bathroom graffiti to the Center for Land Use Interpretation and Stephane Mallarmé. Together they provide deep perspective on the arts community of a global metropolis from which trends and assertions emanate internationally. These blogs are but one indicator of the continuing evolution and expansion of Uber Art and Ten by Ten.

Uber Art also features an array of video art, an archive of reviews from past editions of Ten by Ten and a growing directory of artists on Uber.

The third edition of Ten by Ten includes commentary and criticism on painting, sculpture, photography, video art and more. Reviews will become available throughout the month.
