DATEAGLE ART is an independent London-based online platform, founded in 2017 by 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. Their platform is about forging a community and this is why they personally visit every artist that they interview and feature. Their online content is equally gendered, ad-free, diverse in mediums and they don’t accept commission, as a means to keep their content as honest as they possibly 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 their studio work here.
ONLINE, they operate as a journal in which they publish behind-the-scenes analogue photography of artist’s studios through their personal ‘Visits’, provide straightforward views from their contributor’s and guest artists in their ‘Journal’content, and allow in-depth discourse through their ‘Interviews’. They also undertake quick interviews through the ‘5×5’ series, in which they 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 the ‘DM Interviews’ with international artists, revealing their first times. The website also hosts a series of music playlists from international artists, through the ‘Mix!’ section, allowing the audience to engage with emerging art through a variety of forms. They 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, they curate temporary shows in non-exhibition spaces throughout London, along with hosting regular panel discussions and public events throughout the UK.
