Right Click Save would like to thank all our readers for supporting the magazine over the past year. By reading and sharing articles by our community we can support a more inclusive art world in 2023.
In 2023, there’s no excuse for publishing a collection that is not halfway gender balanced — but somehow people still think they can get away with it. I was very happy to participate in a female-only exhibition, as it is really important to show that there are actually a lot of female artists in this field whose work you can both admire and collect.
There is something very comfortable in seeing a stage for discussion, for critique, and for expression. A completely new space lies ahead and the only way to make it livable is by building it on diverse bases with different voices.
We have to keep asking: how can we lay a new foundation for a future that ensures those who are typically overlooked receive the recognition and value they deserve?
Magazines like RCS are very important to the conversation around art and technology because they present to us broader and deeper aspects of art, poetics, and events that are happening in the NFT environment. This kind of content serves as an archive of what has happened in a context where everything passes so quickly.
While media outlets in the traditional art world are slow to catch up with new discourses, it is up to the insiders to make those conversations happen — to create taxonomies, find relationships, and propose tools for evaluation and comparison. Magazines like RCS have a very important role in delivering high-quality conversations around emerging subgenres of art and technology.
As an artist myself, RCS has made me step back, look at my own work, and wonder how it fits in context and how others might look back at it someday. It also makes me want to try to be intentional about what story I am telling with my work, where I want to take it in the future, and why.
RCS is supporting the creation of a community of artists who are forging the new frontiers.
Participating in FEMGEN meant expansion.
RCS is written for artists and art lovers who were hungry for more critical discussions around NFTs. It’s my go-to resource for inspiring and thought-provoking ideas on art, curation, and beyond.
The FEMGEN movement is a collective confrontation with the definition of value. The event and exhibition obliterated the notion that equity, inclusion, and balance would detract from value, offering a glimpse into a reality in which these principles amplify cultural, critical, and market value.
As a publication centered on uplifting artists and their perspectives, RCS contributes high-quality conversations and perspectives on art and technology and the growth of Web3. It serves as a use case for future decentralized publications.
That the visionary curators of FEMGEN included not only generative visuals but also an ars autopoetica written by a nonhuman mind suggests we are on the cusp of a seismic moment in the history of language and consciousness, moving from text-to-image to text-to-imagination.
FEMGEN was important because everyone knows the right words to say to appear sensitive to gender inequality in the arts but actions are required to make a material difference.
