dateagleart is a contemporary art platform based in London, supporting emerging to mid-career artists and galleries through interviews, reviews, blog, studio and exhibition visits, amongst other projects such as 'Mix!', 'Spread The Virus' or 'Three Day Residency'.

Expanding contemporary culture, dateagleart is aimed to become a central platform that engages today's art with all publics by using a direct visual and written language. We believe in easy to understand writing, aimed to connect with not only art historians, but also the general public. Our ideology is to make art accessible to all by expanding it in our global platform. We believe in a more transparent perspective of displaying works online, focusing on close-ups, Polaroids, and film photography to accompany our intimate views on art.

dateagleart supports artists in their initial stages, acting as a middle point in between emerging artists and established institutions.
