In addition to the exhibition and events, the Center plans to build and house a permanent and public archive documenting Chicago’s past and present artist-run spaces through the gathering of materials for Artists Run Chicago.

Miami was an experience this year, over 20 art fairs and a very discerning
crowd. The traffic was dispersed and therefore not the level of last
year, but the viewers seemed more interested in spending time discussing
the work. LiveBox has always approached the Miami Fair as a time to
expose video and new media work to a broader audience, our expectations
for sales have been pretty low, but this year people bought video
and new media work. There was very little media work in Miami and
LiveBox became the place to go. It was a very exciting and rewarding
experience. Thanks to all the artists who made it so.

The Video Art and New Media Lounge was a huge success thanks to the

Lounge as the place to be during the Festival. A video documentation

Miami proves to be like no other art experience, a virtual frenzy
of parties and art platforms. No where have I seen so many blurry-eyed
lookers; Miami was saturated with no less than 13 satellite fairs,
plus "the Big Fair", and programs by every commercial and
non-for-profit art establishment in the city. Many corporatist also
got involved with "art happenings" by art stars. It was
a whirlwind experience. So much art, some amazing, some familiar and
a lot of spectacles masquerading as art.
LiveBox presented well. We received numerous comments from collectors,
writers, curators and viewers that the video at LiveBox was the best
collection of work they'd seen in Miami, thanks to the terrific artists
exhibiting, and the video library of work from artists who have exhibited
at LiveBox in 2006. The exhibition has lead to 4 collaborative opportunities
where LiveBox has been asked to curate programs for the Director Lounge
in Berlin, the Victory Park in Dallas, and Video and New Media Festivals
in Munich and Italy.

Don't miss it, the exhibition will be up through December.
