Big things happening over at Evoke! There's a really high energy about the site, everyone's abuzz, inspiration is flowing, creativity is skyrocketing. Exhibition XIII - Avant-Garde, reflects this. Along with our new release of Avant-Garde comes the long awaited v4! Many thanks to Joao Oliveira for the beautiful layout, Ted Yavuzkurt for the backend coding, and Matt Dobson for front-end coding, without them this wouldn't be possible!! This sexy sleek new design strongly demands your attention, and will be sure to better your experience while browsing though our fresh new art.


Our featured artist for Avant-Garde is Mason Noriega, a.k.a. Verve! He submitted some stunning imagery that really shows that Evoke is on the cusp of the digital art scene. Be sure to catch an exclusive interview with him at our site! Other treasures to this pack are Biomachina (digital), Disting (audio), and Brendan (photography); these three really went all out and deserve some love as well. Evoke's members have worked hard to put this great of an exhibition together in just 2 months, and it has paid off. This isn't just our newest exhibition to date, it is infact, quite distinctly our best.

Shoutout to some amazing new artists at Evoke, including disting, mikor, siid, avariz, liike, h3ad3ad, genesis, kian, koleman, starfantazy, and velendil. Check them out, they really added some spice to our latest exhibition! And congrats to all of you for making it into Evoke.

----------

So, now that all the solid facts are out in the air, let's get down to understanding the meaning of our latest exhibition, Avant-Garde.


Here is an excerpt provided by wikipedia, to help give you the general idea;

"Avant-garde means front guard, advance guard, or vanguard. The term is commonly used in French, English, and German to refer to people or works that are experimental or novel, particularly with respect to art, culture, and politics."

"Avant-garde represents a pushing of the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm, or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. The notion of the existence of the avant-garde is considered by some to be a hallmark of modernism, as distinct from postmodernism."

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avant-ga… read more about it here.

----------

Here at Evoke we took this theme to the heart. Members thought outside of the box, experimented sucessfully, and branched out to revitalize the fire that draws us all to the digital art scene. This process required members to sweat, study hard, open their minds to find new ideas, and do some things that generally voided equipment warranties. (haha, thanks for the line ted) Our portrayal of an Avant-Garde on the digital scene is an experience not to be missed!


Catch all the action by heading on over to Evoke, and make sure to stop and register at our forums to share your thoughts and give us some  feedback. Well, with that said, enjoy the show!!
