Global Art Daily™ is a digital database of artist interviews and opinion essays fostering fusion, hybridity and transnationalism in the 21st century art world. The archive was founded in 2015 by Sophie Mayuko Arni in Abu Dhabi, UAE as a means to document the city's contemporary art scene ahead of its large museum project openings. Since then, the archive has expanded its geographical reach to the Americas, Asia and Europe via contibutors' inputs and collaborations. We are currently operating from Tokyo, Japan.
Our goal is to become the internet of art in a geopolitically-decentralized world. We are educators at heart, aiming to highlight and discuss artistic output from under-represented regions of the world. We aim to build a Silk Roads digital network of ideas and artistic inputs, and act as historians of our digital times. Global Art Daily™ provides a reference book for all artists and art enthusiasts across genres.
The internet is here to stay forever. We would like to share first-hand experiences of how art travels in our current era.
Since 2016, artist interviews have been a priority for Global Art Daily™. GAD written artist interviews have become a valuable online resource for researchers, curators and other artists worldwide. Some past interviewees include Hyon Gyon, John Torreano, Raed Yassin, Kim Junsung and Al Anood Al Obaidly.
In 2017, we introduced Global Art Daily™ x abu dhabi (fall/winter 2017 collection), the first capsule streetwear collection from Global Art Daily™. The collection was produced, shot and sold in Abu Dhabi, UAE with a special pop-up installation at Salwa Zeidan Gallery at the St Regis Saadiyat Island Hotel. Inspired by Kanye West's Yeezy line, Global Art Daily™ x abu dhabi bridged the gaps between Calabasas and Abu Dhabi between contemporary art and streetwear. We don't discriminate in geographies or genres: we believe in fusion between art, fashion, music, classes, races, tastes.
In 2018, we are launching Global Art Daily Magazine, a bilingual (English-Japanese) quarterly magazine for the global art afficionado. The first print issue is entitled 'Street Futures', and will be available in February 2018 at selected retailers in Japan and the UAE.
