Vanity Projects is beyond a traditional gallery space. While providing a bespoke nail experience, we offer video art programming (6-8 week cycle) aimed at changing the way people perceive and experience the video medium.
Directed by Rita de Alencar Pinto, the program includes collaborations with international curators and artists.
Past exhibitions include artists as Hans Op de Beeck, Jeremy Blake, Eve Sussman, Tala Maldani, Nathalie Djurberg, Tejal Shah, Neha Choksi, Rochelle Feinstein, Alterazioni Video, Claire Hooper, Marisa Olson, and programs curated by Carolyn H. Drake, Tim Goossens, Diana Campbell Betancourt, and more.
In January 2017 Vanity Projects partnered with Daata Editions, a British foundation dedicated to commissioning video, sound and web-based art. This new, logical and innovative way to collect art is designed as a native platform to a new generation of artists who work with moving image and sound.
Vanity Projects is committed to presenting contemporary video art and this partnership galvanizes their ethos of developing new and innovative platforms to present the medium. Programs from the Daata Archive run concurrent at both salon locations. With both solo and group presentations the content spans a wide area of interests and artists point of view. Past exhibitions include, Scott Reeder, Saya Woolfalk, Ed Fornieles, Yung Jake, Sue de Beer, Zadie Xa, Fluct, Hannah Perry and Jillian Mayer.
As a captive audience our goal is to encourage clients to engage in a dialogue with the work presented and each another. All Artworks are available for purchase at https://daata-editions.com/
