Digicult presents:

The platform that is changing the contemporary art market

This is the interview I did to Sedition, the online platform that is
changing the market of international contemporary art. They do not release
many interviews, so it's an exclusive chance to better know this service
(founded in 2011 by Harry Blain) that displays and sells artworks in
digital format giving everyone an easy, enjoyable and social way to
experience art-collecting at affordable prices


An online platform for contemporary and media artists, has been displaing
and selling their artworks in digital format from about 3 years. For those
who don’t know it, its called Sedition (http://www.seditionart.com/) and it
gives everyone an easy, enjoyable and social way to experience
art-collecting at affordable prices, for connected screens and devices,
TVs, smartphones, tablets, apps and computers.

They do not release many interviews, even if feedbacks confirm how this
service has been growing in terms of numbers and businesses and is changing
the way we can experience contemporary art nowaday. And how also the market
of contemporary art will probably change the next years, due to the
Internet and Social Media services.

The company was founded in 2011 by Harry Blain, English art dealer and
gallery owner that in 2002 started Haunch of Venison gallery with Graham
Southern, Founding Director of Christie’s (London) Post-War & Contemporary
Art Department until 2011. In 2007 Blain and Southern sold Haunch of
Venison to Christie’s International plc and after that launched a new
gallery, Blain | Southern (http://www.blainsouthern.com/).

Sedition presents today an unparalleled selection of artists and artworks
with works by leading contemporary artists including Damien Hirst, Tracey
Emin, Bill Viola, Yoko Ono, Shepard Fairey, Wim Wenders, Jenny Holzer,
Lawrence Weiner, Francesco Clemente, Peter Savilleand, Christian Boltanski
but also media artists as Ryoji Ikeda, Scanner, Casey Reas, Aaron Koblin,
Herman Kolgen, Universal Everything, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Paolo Cirio, LIA,
Memo Atken, Quayola, Zimoun, Mark Amerika, Claudia Hart and many others.
