About

We are an online curatorial platform that pairs artists with a software engineer to create an online work.

~ WHAT IS Tête-à-tête? ~  

Tête-à-tête is a web platform started in the summer of 2017 to provide an opportunity for artists to contextualize their own work in a focused online setting. Each month, a new artist works closely with a professional software engineer to produce an online work.

The result lives on the homepage of tete-ahh-tete.net for a month. Artists shown on the site don't need to learn how to code, and the piece is often their first digital- or Internet-based work.  We’ve produced imagined landscapes viewable through Google Street View, to a pair of videos that must be touched and rubbed to continue playing them, to a celebration of a website that attempts to sell fashion-forward canes. 

You can view past works at tete-ahh-tete.net/about.html

~ HOW THIS DRIP WORKS ~

By becoming a subscriber, you will get a monthly Artist Extra, which will be completely up to the artist, and could include:  - Artist editions - Video - Interviews - Performances - Participatory Discussions - In-Person Events  You only get charged when an Artist Extra is released.  ~ 

~ WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES

100% of the proceeds goes directly to the artist of the month.  Here's a text-graphical representation of where the money goes. Each letter represents a penny, where A = a penny for the artist of the month, P = a penny for payment processing, and D = a penny for Drip.  

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPP PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD 

 $3.45 will go directly to the artist, and $0.20 will go to Drip, and $0.32 will go to payment processing.  

Thanks for your interest, and we hope you help support new forms of online art and curation. 

Samantha Best, Curator + Robert Wiegmann, Technical Director
