The Widget Art Gallery, web-based App cross-plattform.

The WAG is a virtual display environment that exists on IDevices I've thought extremely coherent in order to show digital art.
The alternative wag to physical space comes when I’ve realized that the concept of possession has given way to the access. So was born the idea of having an exhibition space available always and everywhere. Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009. The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room that fits into people’s pocket. The virtual gallery-room, every month, directly on people’s mobile, hosts a solo digital art exhibition related and inspired to the dynamic site-specific contest. wag So, the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and as a permanent collection museum, conserving all the past exhibitions inside an online archive. The WAG is a web app cross-device and platform http://www.chiarapassa.it/wag/ “add to home” the WAG's icon wag it will be saved on your device.

Current Exhibition

"ExploWare Beta 0.0" by David Hanes. June 5 - July 5 2015.

"ExploWare Beta 0.0" is an animated remix by artist David Hanes made in the same vein as his “Aware” series in which online images of gallery documentation become the source material for digital manipulations. Hanes revises these representations of cultural objects in anonymous spaces using Photoshop. This version exposes some of his aesthetic influences, as well as his process. The result is a tension between abstraction and representation, an emptied showroom and a bleached-out artwork.
David Hanes, born in 1987 in Toronto, is an artist, curator, and DJ whose expanded sculptural practice examines the architecture of the Internet and the experience of art in the digital age. Exhibiting in both offline and online communities, David lives/works in Berlin, Germany. He is represented by Birch Contemporary Toronto.
