KANSAS CITY, MO.- Urban Culture Project’s Third Friday Art Downtown October 19 features three new exhibition openings mixing local, national and international artists; open studios; and live performance in the Jenkins windows, all in downtown Kansas City.
Tim Barber, a New York-based photographer, started the tinyvices website (tinyvices.com) as an accessible showcase for his own and other photographers' work. This travelling exhibition will include a complex installation of photographs, drawings, and paintings by over 60 of the artists, known and unknown, that are featured on the tinyvices website.
tinyvices is a re-conceptualized web log. It functions as a community publication, an editorial project, an art gallery and archive. The site receives thousands of daily hits, and hundreds of new images are sent in for consideration every month in response to a continuous open call for submissions. Over the past few years, the site has expanded to encompass images from around the world, incorporating a wide variety of subjects and styles. A frequent format is that of the 'travelogue', with Barber and others' photos of everything from cross-country road trips to a visit to the vet. Common to all of the posts is a disarmingly personal perspective. From photos of a day at a baseball game, to a series of drawings by a kid in detention, the site is like a scrap book with dozens of authors.
