Apparently it is the time of exhibition space posts.
This time I will show you 700mbg gallery, a gallery that only exists on cds (and partly online).
This nice initiative of Phillip Sadofsky and Stefan Riebel runs since 2009 with every month a new artist featured.Philip Sadofsky himself works in the field of computer-art. Stefan Riebel as well, but he works more with the phenomenons and side effects that belong to net-art than make Internet-art. Their websites are well worth visiting!
Next to this gallery, Riebel also runs The Tiniest Art Space Ever. For exhibition in this art space people can send in all kind of pictures.
This ever growing archive is exhibited on events…
Back to the 700MBG gallery
Every other month a new exhibition is presented:these shows are exclusively held on compact discs and will partly be displayed on this website.
Each exhibition consists of one unique copy only that will be available for sale for 700 Euro each.
The 700MGB gallery is always looking for fresh artist blood.
There are no theme restrictions, the only restriction is the format: a 700mb CD.
A few examples:
Svetlana Mircheva – Saved images
She used the format for a recognisable work: lost images on your computer.found back thanks to recovery of your computer system.
Florian Kuhlmann – Single Sign on
An empty recodable disc, signed by the artist.
Annabelle Lange – Thereforfaces
Lange plays with the possibilities of nowadays media by creating one hundred of Facebook accounts for people in her archive of old pictures. collected on the flea market.
You can click through to all the 100 accounts here.

Through another artist i cam across a lovely exhibition concept: Probe.
Probe is a small exhibition space: 1,10m high and only 6m2.
Because of it small size it is perfect for artists to experiment and work on scale and do things that are impossible in normal sized exhibition spaces.
The spaces is flexible: only the outside walls and doors are permanent.
Another special element about the exhibition space is that you cannot visit the exhibition in real life.
You can only visit the space on-line. This makes the space even more suitable for experiments on what an exhibition can be. The registration of the exhibition is the exhibition.
On the website of Probe you can also read how this exbhibition was different for the artists and why. Which I think is a nice addition to the common text only about the exhibition itself.
Probe runs exhibitions since 2008 and is still going.
This project is initiated by Suze May Sho, an collaboration of 3 different designers/artists.
More information about Probe here.
A sample of the exhibition of David Weber-Krebs:
He transported the everyday life – the changing of the light during the day – into the white cube.
