ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

Interview with Robert Taite  
by
9/22/14 Posted 9/22/14

Winnipeg, Sept. 2014: Robert Taite generates content through painting. Visual data culled through transitions, his paintings seem coy or perhaps indifferent to what Donald Judd described as “specific” in his seminal 1965 essay Specific Objects. While influenced by post war conceptual art, Taite’s own work feels of the moment with a cut-and-paste aesthetic; sources are loose and refreshed often. His practice prompts associations with a continuum of artists playing with architecture... [more]

The Art of the People's Climate March  
by
9/22/14 Posted 9/23/14

Over 400,000 took to the streets in New York City yesterday for the People’s Climate March, what’s being hailed as the largest demonstration against climate change in world history. Just two days before the U.N. convenes its Climate Summit, demonstrators hoped to send a clear message to world leaders that they must act assertively to combat climate change. Stretching through central Manhattan from its starting point on the west side of Central Park to its end point in Midtown at 11th Ave & 34th St, the march was impressive both in size and diversity.

Niki de Saint Phalle: Are her Nanas Too Sexy?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Niki de Saint Phalle at Grand Palais September 17th - February 2nd, 2015
Posted 9/21/14

It really is a crying shame that Niki de Saint Phalle wasn’t crooked of back, thick of brow, dull eyed with pustulant skin, lank hair, an uneven gait, and a voice that sounded like a hoarse crow hacking its lungs up. At a push I’d even settle for poor and dull witted, but she wasn’t; she was pretty and rich and aristocratic. Now, there is nothing wrong with this—she wasn’t the first and she won’t be the last artist to come from this milieu—but there is a... [more]

Now showing at EXPO CHICAGO Art Fair, Groenen’s Cryptographics brings together twelve unique artworks exploring different forms of marking, both linguistic and pictorial. Reflective of the mysterious text his show honors, Groenen’s Cryptographics features works touching on the cosmological, the obscured, and... [more]

By Art Is Created That Great Leviathan: Glenn Kaino at Kavi Gupta   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Glenn Kaino at Kavi Gupta Chicago - Elizabeth Street September 19th - December 20th
Posted 9/18/14

With the opening words “By art is created that great Leviathan,” Thomas Hobbes launches readers into his seminal work of political philosophy, Leviathan, in which he imagines the State as a great aggregation of the masses into a singular societal body. Drawing its title from Hobbes’ treatise, LA-based artist Glenn Kaino’s exhibition at Kavi Gupta Gallery’s Elizabeth Street location indicates an ambition for superstrata-level political commentary. Despite the impossible loftine... [more]

The Donut and the (ass)hole  
by
Mungo Thomson at Kadist Art Foundation September 17th - November 1st
Posted 9/18/14

Mungo Thompson fancies himself clever. He thinks that public affirmations of private struggle are curious, and can’t wrap his pretty little middle class head around the idea that they might be empowering. He likes Bruce Nauman’s neon spiral form… he likes the idea that it takes up a commercial vehicle to advertise non-commodity slogan. He thought it would be cute to rifle through self-help books and AA 12-step guides, pick out phrases, and pay somebody to fabricate neon spiral aff... [more]

As Burnier describes it, this latter project &ld... [more]

They selected Amsterdam-based curator and critic Manus Groenen's show "Cryptographics: a tribute to the Voynich Manuscript." Featurin... [more]

The Middle as a Means to an End: The Chicago Effect at the Hyde Park Art Center   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Marissa Lee Benedict, Robert Burnier, Devon Dikeou, Essex/Olivares, Assaf Evron, Jamie Hayes, Patrick Meagher, Michael Smith, Jan Tichy, Lan Tuazon at Hyde Park Art Center August 24th - November 23rd
Posted 9/5/14

In the forward-thinking exhibition The Chicago Effect: Redefining the Middle, curators Allison Peters Quinn, Christopher K. Ho, and Megha Ralapati explore the notion of the Middle, coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the Hyde Park Art Center (the “Center”). Of course, defining the middle is not an easy task. The mere attempt to define “it” and its ubiquity is confusing—but this exact confusion makes the experience of the show all the more intriguing. In the insta... [more]

Required Viewing – Chicago: Pictures for a Generation   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 9/5/14

Of the multitude of exhibitions opening this September in Chicago, one stands—or falls—singularly into view. A complete series of work by Maccarone artist Sarah Charlesworth that helped to define the Pictures Generation will be shown for the first time at the Art Institute of Chicago. The series, entitled Stills, features figures falling from great heights, suspended in front of buildings that function more as a frame than as a backdrop—static yet tense. Teasing the weight and re... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Institut für Klassische Archäologie, Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz  
by
9/5/14 Posted 9/13/14

As I reported shortly after my trip to Graz in 2012, I was delighted by my visit to Institut für Klassische Archäologie at Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz, for its collections of many classical Roman and Greek marble sculptures and reliefs. According to the university, "the Institute is home to significant archaeological collections of ancient vases of Greece, objects from local sites as well as casts of ancient sculptures." There were many beautiful sculptures to admire, many... [more]
