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.

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]

Last night I attended the opening of the incredibly lovely exhibition, Without/Color. At Figureworks in Williamsburg, this show currently features three artists (there will be a second iteration of the show with an additional three artists). The first room features evocative pencil drawings of female figures by Joanne Scott. The second room features haunting watercolors by Meridith McNeal. Both rooms are guarded over by intricate and powerful terra-cotta ravens by Alexander Ney. There is a heavy softn... [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]

This show is not to be missed. The paintings pop off the canvas in bright colors as if the paint were dancing to the jazz music that inspired many of the paintings. While the curator emphasizes the historical importance of these paintings, and that they capture a community not usually chronicled in art, they are great because they are great, period. He uses color and facial expression in a way that seems ahead of his time. It is a delightful and eye opening show. Particularly memorable, a swirling... [more]

Daria Kudinova at Osnova Gallery > New York

Posted 10/18/15

Artworks of Daria Kudinova charm with its composition, color palette and diversity of motives. You do not know for sure what kind of structures are presented at them. Is it something biomorphic or technogenic? What do they mean? What is the concept of those paintings? Besides, you will not understand the main idea of Dasha Kudinova’s artworks if you are not familiar with her biography. Before she developed her own style Dasha worked as a fashion photographer and as an assistant of more expe... [more]

A collection of 15 paintings themed as "the bewilderments of Vincent" by Iranian artist Parisa Sahafi-Asl is to be held at Shalman Art Gallery in Tehran. The motif of the exhibition is inspired and oriented around 15 of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings depicting the unpleasant contrast between conditions and ideals of the time Van Gogh lived and the 21st century. According to the artist, the artworks would distinctly criticize the actual realities of the present day such as anger, infringe... [more]
