The Affordable Art Fair opens tomorrow in New York and the fantastic ArtWeLove site is taking the opportunity to launch its free access site.  After a year of members only access, now anyone can use the site to explore and discover the global contemporary arts scene.

ArtWeLove is the first online art community to provide collective intelligence on the global art scene, its artists, its culture, its places, its people.  Their mission is to actively promote the understanding and appreciation of contemporary art by allowing experts and everyday enthusiasts to share their knowledge and passion with other like-minded art lovers.

The site acts like your own personal art consultant, featuring worldwide venue and show listings, expert commentary on up-and-coming artists and recommended shows, and inexhaustible information on new artists and trends. Most importantly, ArtWeLove invites users to “explore art on your own terms.” Users can search by artist, emerging markets, techniques, movements and styles. You can archive or share favorites, connecting with like-minded art enthusiasts in the process.

Ceal Floyer, one of the artists featured on WeLoveArt, is the art world’s Steven Wright, tossing out conceptual one-liners that find a precarious balance between humor and something resembling philosophical heft. In the Pakistan-born, Berlin-based artist’s latest show at 303 Gallery -a typically sparse affair – the three works on display all riff on the slippery nature of language, leaving viewers with a smile and a little less certainty.

Ceal Floyer lives and works in Berlin, where she received her B.A. from Goldsmiths College in 1994. A multimedia artist working in video, sound and light projection works on paper, and sculpture, Floyer’s work examines the dialectical tension between the literal and the mundane, and the imaginative construction of meaning. The deceptive simplicity of Floyer’s work is informed by her particular sense of humor and awareness of the absurd; her use of double-takes and shifting points of view forces the viewer to renegotiate their perception of the world.
