The Art Research Center is an independent not-for-profit association in Kansas City, Missouri. In its early days, members included architects, artists, composers, designers, writers and others. Its work was connected with the exploration of abstract Neo-Constructivism, by both individuals and groups.[1] The association grew out of an earlier collaborative art gallery project, and was started by Thomas Michael Stephens in 1964. The first exhibition was held in 1966.[2]:190 In 1969, Stephens, with Jon Brees Thogmartin and Nancy Ann Stephens, took work by eight artists of the group to the fourth New Tendencies exhibition in Zagreb, at that time in Yugoslavia; the works were displayed as a group, forming a cohesive whole.[2]:190 The Art Research Center's first exhibition ran from October 29, 1966 to January 31, 1967 at a branch of the Kansas City public library. Seven members participated in the first ARC exhibition.

PAF St Erme, Picardie, France


PAF is based in St Erme, 150km north-east of Paris, France, between Reims and Laon.
PAF (=PerformingArtsForum) is a place for the professional and not-yet professional practitioners and activists in the field of performing arts, visual art, literature, music, new media and internet, theory and cultural production, and scientists who seek to research and determine their own conditions of work. PAF is for people who can motorize their own artistic production and knowledge production not only responding to the opportunities given by the institutional market. Initiated and run by artists, theoreticians and practitioners themselves, PAF is a user-created, user-innovative informal institution. Neither a production-house and venue, nor a research-center, it is a platform for everyone who wants to expand possibilities and interests in his/her own working practice.

PAF is - a forum for producing knowledge in critical exchange and ongoing discursive practice- a place for temporary autonomy and full concentration on work- a tool-machine where one can work on developing methods, tools and procedures, not necessarily driven toward a product - a place for experimenting with other than known modes of production and organization of work, e.g. open source production.

Geoform is an online scholarly resource and curatorial project whose focus is the use of geometric form and structure in contemporary abstract art being made by artists from around the world. Geoform explores, documents and celebrates the rich diversity of style and aesthetic intent that characterizes this broad vein of contemporary non-objective abstraction. Such diversity attests to the profound resonance that geometric form and structure have had for people across time and place.Geoform is edited by Julie Karabenick ( It has been online since May, 2005.• Artists— Participating artists may be found under “all artists.” Each artist’s individual page presents: images of artwork, an artist statement and various types of contact information. • Interviews—In-depth, richly illustrated interviews with some of the participating artists may be found under “all interviews.” The interviews are developed through a variety of ways—studio visits, email, Skype and phone conversations—over the course of months or longer. Please note that Geoform does not act as a commercial agent for any of the participating artists. Appropriate channels for making sales inquiries are presented on each artist’s individual page under his or her contact information. Geoform does not take artist submissions. Although all emails are read, it is unfortunately not possible to respond to all inquiries.Thank you very much for your interest in Geoform.
