Barmecidal Projects

"Barmecidal Projects Gallery is an entirely digital 3D gallery. The goal of BPG is to place immaterial artworks within the more phenomenological context of a gallery space and to curate them within the digital realm.
Our objective is to bring together artists working in digital and immaterial forms. Digitally created works existing in the space are rendered in high-gloss, hyperrealistic fashion. Having these objects exist in the gallery space further blurs the boundaries between the Real and representation; the works will be so shiny and irresistible by virtue of their digital nature that they will supersede reality."

BAR·ME·CID·AL: providing only the illusion of abundance; illusory or imaginary and therefore disappointing.

Artists and curators JILLIAN KAY ROSS and MIKE GOLDBY celebrate their extended network of peers and contemporaries in BARMECIDAL PROJECTS' inaugural group exhibition FREE 4 ALL. FREE 4 ALL features work by ALEX MCLEOD, AMALIA ULMAN, ARIELLE GAVIN, BRAD TINMOUTH, BRIAN KHEK, DANIELLE BESSADA, DAVID HANES, EMILY JONES, GEORGIA DICKIE, IAIN BALL, JENNIFER CHAN, JILLIAN KAY ROSS, JON RAFMAN, JUSTIN BOCHEK, JÓNÓ MÍ LÓ, JARROD WILSON, KAITLIN TILL- LANDRY, LAUREN BRICK, LAUREN ELDER, LEE ORMEROD, LIAM WYLIE, LILI HUSTON- HERTERICH, MIKE GOLDBY, ORLANDO ORELLANO, RACHAEL MILTON, SHELBI CHEW, and TARA DOWNS, unifying artists working both immaterially and physically. The high-gloss, hyper-real finish of the rendered exhibition obscures the boundaries between Real and Representation. So shiny, so irresistible by virtue of its digitallness, FREE 4 ALL supersedes certainty.
