DATEAGLE ART is a London-based platform, founded in 2017 by curatorial duo Vanessa Murrell and Martin Mayorga, that supports UK-based emerging artists in the form of interviews, studio visits, blog content and both online and offline exhibition curation. Our platform is about forging a community and this is why we personally visit every artist that we interview and feature. Our online content is equally gendered, ad-free, diverse in mediums and we don’t accept commissions as a means to keep our content as honest as we can, through the lens of the artist.
DATEAGLE STUDIO is the first creative art agency that offers both visual services and press and pr services within the contemporary art realm. Read more about our studio work here.
ONLINE, we operate as a journal in which we publish behind-the-scenes analogue photography of artist’s studios through our personal ‘Visits’, provide straightforward views from our contributor’s and guest artists in our ‘Journal’ content, and allow in-depth discourse through our ‘Interviews’. We also undertake quick interviews through our ‘5×5’ series, in which we ask the same 5 questions to 5 artists in group shows as a means to giving an equal voice to a variety of artists, and through our ‘DM Interviews’ with international artists, revealing their first times. The website also hosts a series of music playlists from international artists, through our ‘Mix!’ section, allowing our audience to engage with emerging art through variety of forms. We are also involved in curating ‘Spread The Virus’, an on-going online exhibition evolving over 12 months which intends to chart the year through aesthetic as well as social and political lenses, co-organised with an invited guest curator.
OFFLINE, we curate temporary shows in non-exhibition spaces throughout London, along with hosting regular panel discussions and public events throughout the UK.
