Siera Hyte, Installation views of Me and the king, 2015 © Siera Hyte, Courtesy of Queer Thoughts, New York. For a pint-sized, square room, Queer Thoughts’ current Tribeca location doesn’t afford much in terms of spatial twists and turns. That didn’t deter things here; the newly arrived gallery from Chicago kept proceedings quick-witted, and edgy. However, much of that edge had to do with the Siera Hyte, the San Diego-based artist who warmed the space up for its first winter... [more]

Greg Sholette describes a “Mockstitution” as a mock institution that is an informally structured art agency that overtly mimics the name and to some degree the function of larger, more established organizational entities. Mockinstitution thrive within the voids left by an increasingly fractured social framework whose coherence is faltering thanks to rampant privatization, economic deregulation, ubiquitous social risk and day-to-day precariousness.

Imagining Life in 1930s Poland Through Dioramas and Photography By David Rosenberg LINK TO ARTICLE: http://slate.me/21tVOr7 When Richard Tuschman—known for the detailed dioramas he creates and photographs—visited his wife’s hometown of Krakow, Poland, in 2011, he knew he’d found the setting for his next project. “Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz” follows a Jewish family in 1930s Poland over 17 images. The work is presented in a sequence, but Tuschman said that he wants view... [more]

Found objects have always been secret allies for visual artists. They are stumbled upon and acquired, magpie-like, because of a private vision of “intrinsic interest,” to be teased out and made concrete later. Found photographs, too, have long since found their place inside artists’ private wunderkammern. Following the Box, an exhibition of a particularly curious origin now on view at the Indian Museum, Kolkata, brings the aesthetic power of found photographs front and center. http:/... [more]

It is hard to take any exhibition with a grandiose title such as Photography Since the Millennium seriously, but then again, we are just fifteen years into this new millennium. And there have not been any major strides in photography since the new millennium except for, well, the death of analogue, and video is accessible to all. Goodbye film, hello pixels. Has there been one year since the new millennium that has not seen a new release of cameras with enhanced numbers of pixels? It is the mega... [more]

By: Amy Haddad A group show at LVL3 in Chicago brings together three artists that explore germination in multiple ways. Heidi Norton. “The Plight (feeding Systems).” Image courtesy of LVL3. Visitors attending the “Germination” exhibition at LVL3, a gallery in Chicago, should expect to be surprised by the connections the show offers. The title brings to mind seeds growing into plants. But the visitor cannot help thinking how the term germination has expanded after seeing an amalgama... [more]

ABOUT THE COVER – LYLE REXER Photograph Mag, Sept/Oct Issue Like a fault line in the surface of appearances, photo collage opens up in periods of social stress and political obfuscation. In the 1880s, the playful cut and paste of Victorian albums betrayed a skepticism about photography’s ability to sustain memory and maintain the connection to a tradition that technology was rapidly effacing. In the 1920s and ‘30s, collage mobilized images against themselves, recombining th... [more]

Complete darkness and silence are what the viewers stumble into upon entering the Curve gallery. Following the exhibition assistants’instructions to step down into the gallery proper, the viewers have to be patient and wait. Curiosity, unease and agitation, all come along with the one-minute wait. All of a sudden, a wall of light falls from the above. Undazzling and somewhat misty, the light radiates with epic music. The journey begins. This is Light Echoes, an immersive site-specific installation by... [more]

Comicon North Article by Rebecca Romani It’s late on a Friday and the Studio Door Gallery on 30th is still going strong for the opening of its national Comicon-inspired show, “Strip: Caricature, Satire and the Funnies.” The caricature artist is working on a couple who looks thrilled to be getting mildly caricaturized and someone is busily adding lines to the communal canvas off in the corner. She is concentrating so hard she barely notices people looking over her shoulder. ... [more]
