Opening Times – Digital Art Commissions is a not-for-profit, digital art commissioning body and platform for artworks whose primary means of encounter is online.
Opening Times commissions new digital and online artwork, research into digital and online art practice, online residencies, a guest-edited reading resource, website take-overs and a screening programme.
For further information please email, info[at]otdac[dot]org.
Available to UK-based artists, Opening Times commissions new work to be displayed online.
International artists are invited to participate in a 3-month residency. Resident artists receive a production budget, technical support from digital specialists, access to Opening Times’ hosting space (servers, website structure), and critical support from selected artists, writers and curators.
Artists, writers and curators are invited to develop new work with an emphasis on research into digital and online art practice.
An online reading resource is published each quarter by an invited artist, writer or curator. The editor selects external documents according to their own editorial interest, with the objective to contextualise digital and online art practice.
Through a series of curated take-overs, Opening Times integrates the work of commissioned and resident artists within the fabric of third party websites.
Screenings are available online for a limited period on the Opening Times website and programmed by invited artists, writers and curators.
