SCREEN_ [pronounced: screen space] is a email-based art "space" that produces monthly artworks, sent/received via email.

Email often acts as a container or vehicle for disseminating images of art, but here it becomes an art object in its own right. Our inboxes already constitute private, unorthodox art viewing spaces; we encounter art related emails almost daily. But these emails are mostly cropped and reframed as press releases and show announcements. SCREEN_ looks to the history of Ray Johnson and Fluxus mail art as it seeks to create a distinct system of art dissemination and reception.

Each participating artist creates a unique artwork for each installment. Email recipients are asked to subscribe. This opt-in structure is meant to elicit an engaged audience and help the project avoid spam status.

Mailchimp is used as the project's platform. Mailchimp is the default art professional newsletter generator. This project encourages artists to hack the format, write their own code, ignore design standards and make something that is specific to the form.

SCREEN_ is organized by Ada Wright Potter.

House of Medici
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
The House of Medici was an Italian banking family and political dynasty that first began to gather prominence under Cosimo de' Medici in the Republic of Florence during the first half of the 15th century. The family originated in the Mugello region of Tuscany and prospered gradually until it was able to fund the Medici Bank. This bank was the largest in Europe during the 15th century, and it facilitated the Medicis' rise to political power in Florence — though officially they remained citizens rather than monarchs until the 16th century. The biggest accomplishments of the Medici were in the sponsorship of art and architecture, mainly early and High Renaissance art and architecture. The Medici were responsible for the majority of Florentine art during their reign. Their money was significant because during this period, artists generally only made their works when they received commissions in advance.
