Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to curate/present "SAMO© IS DEAD. PRESS PLAY" by COLL.EO at the
Widget Art Gallery http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html on
IPhone, IPad and OSX-Dashboard. June 09 - July 10 2014.

About the exhibition:"SAMO© IS DEAD. PRESS PLAY"

In 1978, a wave of graffiti appeared in downtown Manhattan in the form of
wall texts about and or signed by SAMO©.
Thirty six years later, the avatar of Jean-Michel Basquiat* is back with a
vengeance and a spray can, doomed to replay the past, within the spaces of
the WAG, the premier art gallery in Liberty City.

This is not appropriation.


COLL.EO, 2014

* No, not Oscar Murillo. The "real" Basquiat.

COLL.EO is a collaboration between Colleen Flaherty and Matteo Bittanti
established in 2012. COLL.EO currently operates between San Francisco and
the deep end.

About the WAG:

The “WAG" is a mini 3-dimensional, single room gallery that fits into
people pocket 'cause I've developed it for IPhone, IPod Touch and I Pad.
Every month, directly on audience mobile, The “WAG” hosts a solo digital
art exhibition related to the dynamic site-specific contest. So, the Widget
Art Gallery works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions
and as a permanent collections museum because it conserves all the past
exhibitions inside an online archive. For IPhone and IPod touch, just copy
this url http://www.chiarapassa.it/wag/mobile/ in Safari and choose: “add
to home” and the WAG's icon will be saved on your IPhone. Do the same for
IPad but paste this other URL: http://www.chiarapassa.it/wagipad/mobile/,
or download the widget version for Mac osx dashboard at:

Best regards, Chiara.
