Studio Voltaire’s first open submission exhibition was held in 2004, since then we have hosted seven open exhibitions with a changing panel, made up of artists, writers and curators. Studio Voltaire Open 2015 will be a more focused group exhibition than in previous years. This exhibition brings together twelve artists chosen from an open submission process. Selectors were attracted to those with a strong identity, unique voice and often-idiosyncratic methods. The Studio Voltaire Open is testament to our commitment to foster new talent, support diversity and give opportunity to emerging practices.

Previous selectors have included Enrico David, Linder, Mike Nelson, Rebecca Warren, Stuart Comer (MoMA), Jenni Lomax (Camden Arts Centre) and Catherine Wood (Tate). Selected artists have included Sara Barker, Pablo Bronstein, Laura Aldridge, Jimmy Merris and Anthea Hamilton.

Bronzer Flash!

I uploaded a lil something from the archives. Bronzer Flash! is a field recording I made in 2009 of the last half hour of the great late aughts NY/NJ trance radio station Pulse 87. If u have a half hour to spare listen to the whole thing from start to finish. I eventually made an ULTRA rare CD of it in 2010 - which I mostly gave to friends. But, here it is on soundcloud, so anyway, enjoy! ps - Ive been spending all my time on soundcloud lately listening to other ppls stuff, so thought I could put some things up there for others doing the same.
