dateagleart is a contemporary art platform based in London that operates online by supporting emerging to mid-career artists through interviews, blog, and studio visits, along with exploratory projects such as "Mix!" where invited artists send us their playlist of music, "Spread The Virus", an online ongoing exhibition, and "The Three Day Residency" a compressed summer residency where we record live our resident artist during three days of work-in-progress. We are also involved in curating pop-up exhibitions in London, UK and providing direction to middle-market galleries in the form of visual production.

By using a direct visual and written language, we suppress elitist views on art, and engage today's works of art with all publics. We believe in easy to understand writing that eliminates flowery terms. dateagleart displays an intimate perspective on art, eliminating installation shots and focusing on close-ups, Polaroids, and film photography to accompany our un-polished views.
