Theodore Darst Takes Over. Announcing ArtSlant’s First #Instaresidency  
by
9/12/14 Posted 9/12/14

We’re pumped to be doing our first #Instaresidency, where we hand over our Instagram to an artist for a week and let them sort out the rest. First up: digital artist and filmmaker Theodore Darst. Darst first caught our attention through an exhibition, Only Real, in 2014 and then on Instagram with his dynamic animations playing with form, depth, and Macklemore. Using a range of digital software programs from CINEMA 4D After Effects to Photoshop, Darst abstracts his subjects through addin... [more]

Harun Farocki, 1944–2014  
by
8/4/14 Posted 8/4/14

Monopol magazine reported Thursday that German filmmaker Harun Farocki passed away on June 30, 2014, at the age of 70. Born in German-annexed Czechoslovakia in 1944, the Berlin-based artist was known not only for his provocative films, videos, and installations, but also his critical practice as a theorist, editor, curator, and educator. Farocki studied at the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB) from 1966 to 1968. He would later become editor of the Munich-based journal Filmkritik a... [more]

Mike Kelley at MOCA Geffen Contemporary > Los Angeles
March 31st - July 28th
Posted 9/1/14

To borrow a thought from Deleuze and Guattari, art is not chaos, but a composition of chaos that makes possible a wide range of unpredictable new emotions and ideas. It pushes at the borders of the imagination, inviting new ways of seeing, and sharping our capacities for critical reflection. Truly powerful art may even change how we perceive our world, and re-situate our agency within it. The Mike Kelley retrospective (currently on view at LA MoCA), reminds me of a quote by filmmaker David Lyn... [more]

GIFs Are Offish Legit says Saatchi (and it’s pronounced “Motion Photography”)  
by
4/18/14 Posted 4/18/14

Saatchi Art, the Saatchi Gallery, and Google+ just announced the winners of their first-ever Motion Photography Prize. “Motion Photography” is apparently the high-brow version of a GIF, those low-brow, low-tech repeating videos long enjoyed by Tumblr gurls and basement dwelling neckbeards, and more recently, everyone. They've also already been kind of a thing in the art world—the Pittsburgh collective VIA launched its intense 2014 T.GIF tournament last month and we hosted our own... [more]

The red-and-white checked, anamorphic floor of Meredith James’s video installation Delmar, showing through April 13th at the Jack Hanley Gallery, primes viewers to expect a puzzle. The video triptych behind the green velvet curtains at the far end of the gallery doesn’t disappoint. As a form, the triptych can be traced from the painted altarpieces of the early Renaissance to modern films. Before the now standard use of widescreen in film, Abel Gance made use of a triptych format to... [more]

The exhibition is good, and congrats to the artist. A good friend of mine told me a rather disturbing story recently. He had been working with scott for years, and scott has helped him a great deal. Recently scott has not been able to sell as much art to pay his bills and has resorted to throwing events to sustain his gallery. Scott openly admits his failure, in his bathroom there is a painting that says 'BLACKBALL' which he says he got an employee to make in order to remind him how his ex-wife ha... [more]
