Four new digital commissions @ Opening Times

18 December 2014

Opening Times has released new contributions from a selection of artists and writers to mark their six-month anniversary, including writer Orit Gat, artists Richard Healy and Julie Born Schwartz, and editor Victoria Camblin, now live on their website.

For her recent research commission for the site, ‘How We Write When We Write Online?‘, Rhizome-contributing editor and writer Gat posed a series of questions to fellow writers – which include Emily LaBarge, Tyler Coburn, and Frieze co-editor Dan Fox – exploring “how we write on the internet”, culminating in an essay and online research platform also produced by Gat.

Richard Healy’s artwork commission, ‘Where’s Peter?‘, on the other hand, is in the form of a video, incorporating found documents and recorded footage to piece together the relationship between English tenor Peter Pears and composer Benjamin Britten. Julie Born Schwartz’s residency, titled 再吻一次, One More Kiss, also comes in the form of a video, and Victoria Camblin will present her latest editorial selection.
