CURATORIAL PROJECTS:


Remarques – An International Art Collaboration
Selected international artists were invited to participate in a special 2014 collaborative project where Gary A. Bibb (aka Jack the Hack) created a digital collage “base layer” which was then transmitted to the participating artists. Their challenge was to digitally add visual elements to the base, bring it to resolution and then return the completed artworks. The resulting collaborations have been published on the designated website: jackthehack-remarques.blogspot.com. This project is a celebration and testament to those artists' collaborative spirit.


The Guitar Art Project
In 2013 Gary A. Bibb conceived an exhibition project where 30 international artists were invited to create small artworks exploring the visually diverse theme of the guitar.  The first installment of the project was exhibited at Buffalo Brothers Guitars – Carlsbad, CA - September 2013.  A website was created for the project: guitarartbbg.blogspot.com


Public Art Project
A 2011 – 2012 international collaborative art project where Gary A. Bibb created 100 works of art which were dispersed to global associates with the intent of having them installed in public locations. Upon installation, the artworks were photographed in situ as documentation and published on the project’s website: publicartists.blogspot.com


Fluxface in Space
Gary A. Bibb conceived and co-curated the 2010 – 2011 international art project where 127 artists from 26 nations participated in an exhibit commemorating space exploration and the NASA Space Shuttle program. Images of the original artworks, along with self-portraits of the artists, were launched into orbit onboard 2 of the final 3 Shuttle missions: STS-133, Discovery, February 2011 and STS-134, Endeavour, May 2011.
Exhibitions of the project have been featured at Fluxfest Chicago - Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL and the Ft. Worth Community Art Center, Ft Worth, TX with additional exhibits being scheduled.
