    The Contemporary Art Modern Project is also known as The CAMP Gallery—but we've grown to become a platform for artists and artistic endeavors across the board. 

     

    As such, we're honored to feature Juliana Torres' final thesis When Art Embraces Real Life: The Role of Non-Artistic, Ordinary Materials in Art Democratization.  You can view Torres' contribution to our upcoming exhibition, the third-annual installment of Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse, opening October 1, 2021.

  • Reflections on Spring/Break Art Show 2021

    Leslie Sheryll and Tracy Nicholls join the conversation on Heresay:Heresy.
    Reflections on Spring/Break Art Show 2021

    Society has been guided, willingly or otherwise, by leaders and extremists that have turned our nightmares into playgrounds of misinformation and superstition, and entwined survival and politics. This is sadly reminiscent of events in the Dark and Middle Ages, where then, at least, one can argue that they did not have the knowledge, nor the scientific understanding, that we have in this new and current century. Whether it can be contextualized as a mirror or a foreshadowing of the present moment, riots were rampant, attacks on government buildings and attempted coups the norm, and even grander class disparities; uniting these separate historical experiences is the collective inaction of the everyday person. 

    CAMP founder (and curator of our recent Spring/Break Art Show booth) Melanie Prapopoulos leaned into the concept of Heresay:Heresy to create a contemporary version of an ages-old trope: the wizard's lair. Instead of hosting a vision of an elder seer with prophecies at the ready, The CAMP's Wizard's Room questioned the reality of our human creation and fused the perspectives of artists Dominik Schmitt, Aurora Molina, Leslie Sheryll, Tracy Nicholls, and photographers Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti in hopes of attaining some answers.

     

    Lucky for us, she also asked them directly!

  • Stefano Ogliari Badessi: About Nomadism

    A Guest Feature by Kooness
    by Maria Di Giammarco

    Whether it is sculpting, painting, photography, design or fashion, even if someone once said that “the medium is the message”, within an artistic production there can often be a tendency towards a specific narrative, which is visceral and detached from the media that is used to express it. Stefano Ogliari Badessi (S.O.B.), opens up a world of joint ventures and collective collaborations, whilst always gravitating around the themes of nomadism and strayness.

    March/April 2021
    by Melanie Prapopoulos

    Last March, we were in New York for SPRING / BREAK during New York’s winter art week—this March though has been quite different from that experience! It was an interesting month with new artists joining our roster, new ideas brewing in the minds and offices of the CAMP, and a new look on social media, and always a new gallery exhibition.

    The CAMP Gang and myself have been a little quiet since December but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! Since the marathon which was 2020, we rested for a couple of days and hurled ourselves into 2021. Our plan this year is to put together 34 exhibitions both online and physical, but knowing me, and the gang, we will do more than that!

    Notes on December
    by Melanie Prapopoulos

    We closed one gallery, opened a new one, moved gallery locations, took part in online fairs, did online exhibitions, in-gallery exhibitions, signed new artists—I watched the CAMP team grow all from Westport, Connecticut! It has been an exercise in organizing and trusting the Miami and New York team, which has paid off.

    Notes on November
    by Melanie Prapopoulos

    October was a whirlwind in The CAMP Gallery, not just because of the success of our two exhibitions: 40 Women Pulling at The Threads of Social Discourse: F.A.M.A & Guests, and Feminism From South to North, but also because we moved locations!

    What started off as an interest in American 1950’s Pop Art for artist Emma Coyle back in the early 2000’s, has grown into a multitude of work which represents a strong want to make very precise individual images.

    Notes on October

    Getting to October has been something of a task this year, the reason being that during the early days of COVID,  Fiber Artists - Miami Association  (FAMA) formed and with that came October’s exhibition.

    The CAMP’s booth for this year’s 3D Hamptons Virtual Art Fair featured a selection of works by CAMP artists Joseph Ginsberg, Dominik Schmitt, and Drew Doggett. While their perspectives exist on different points of every spectrum imaginable, they unite in both their sentimentality for memories and the lessons they’ve tucked into their pieces.

    The beginnings of textile work are an incomplete picture, what with the perishable quality of early materials, but what is certain is that the craft has always been more than simply utilitarian. That much is clear considering that the items most representative of us—our personalities, cultures, our values, our memories—tend to be woven, embroidered, or sewed.

    Notes on August
    by Melanie Prapopoulos

    Starting a new gallery in the middle of a global pandemic may seem to be a ridiculous venture, but this time and experience has given myself and The CAMP Gang ample time to cement our purpose, our ethos, and our identity.
