One Year On, Is Theaster Gates Reimagining the Modern Museum at the Stony Island Arts Bank?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 9/22/16

I first visited the Stony Island Arts Bank about six months ago, on an unseasonably warm Saturday afternoon in April. As I approached the building, I was struck first by the sunlight slanting through its massive stone columns, second by how much it stood out from its surroundings. It looked as if the Field Museum had a child—a rebellious teenager—who snuck away from Chicago’s Museum Campus in the middle of the night to start a new life on a sleepy South Side street. And, in a sen... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Haydi Roket   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 9/21/16

Istanbul-based Haydi Roket is part of a rising wave of new media artists turning their hands to the curation of online digital art shows. He launched his latest show Virtual Dream earlier this week. Virtual Dream features 30 artists (full disclosure: I am one of them) exploring the tensions and inconsistencies between our real and our increasingly dominant digital lives. Most online experiences consist of a seemingly random sequence of abstract images and ideas, much like our “real” drea... [more]

Taryn Simon at Park Avenue Armory September 13th - September 25th
Posted 9/19/16

“Each of us has his own rhythm of suffering” Roland Barthes wrote in his Mourning Diary following the death of his mother with whom he lived until her passing. The performance of suffering, and the unique, personal rhythms it can take, is at the center of An Occupation of Loss, Taryn Simon’s monumental installation and performance now in its two-week tenure at the Park Avenue Armory. Eleven concrete towers—thin, cylindrical, dystopian—trace a semicircle through the... [more]

at Bienal São Paulo September 7th - December 11th
Posted 9/16/16

As I walked along the winding path of Parque Ibirapuera toward the São Paulo Bienal entrance, I thought about how the impeachment decision, which ousted Brazil’s first female president, Dilma Rousseff, was finalized a few days prior. When the decision came down, I was with a group of artists during a residency. We spent ten days together in Zone Leste, the east zone in the periphery, away from the bustling city center. One of us had gone out the night before and reported that there... [more]

The Bergen Assembly: Translating Research into Learning, and Art   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 9/12/16

An old Norwegian woman in a green and silver Smurf costume, paint smeared on her face, is making chocolate cookies in an underground-bunker-turned-car-park. Standing behind her, contributing to the cookery process, is a parrot-masked performer, stirring the mixture and slapping flour-dusted hands together. It’s the haphazard sort of mayhem that Marvin Gaye Chetwynd has become known for producing throughout her career, and which saw her nominated for the Turner Prize in 2012. This particul... [more]

Cut, Copy, and Print: Magalie Guérin on Replicating Her Own Paintings  
by
8/31/16 Posted 8/31/16

I first met Magalie Guérin in the early 2000s in Greenpoint, Brooklyn—long before Greenpoint was made famous by the TV show Girls. She ran a small gallery called GV/AS, and curated shows that fused serious painting with something personal and quirky (Rodney Dickson's exhibition of paintings of Tanya Roberts still stands out as one of his most interesting exhibitions). One could always find Magalie sitting the gallery and working on drawings—in retrospect, combining elements of art... [more]
