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]

ISO 216  
by
10/31/14 Posted 10/31/14

Con Artist presents ISO 216, a collaboration between artists from New York and London. Named in honor of the world’s most common paper size ratio which, like so many of global standards of weights and measure, is notably rare in the US, ISO 216 celebrates the cultural parallels and unique individuality of the United Kingdom and United States. The two nations are ethnically diverse, share a common language, and are each massive exporters of art and culture, but as their slightly different pa... [more]

HYPNOTIST COLLECTORS AND WALKING ANTIQUES: NYLA THOMPSON AND THE DISHONESTY OF OUTSIDER ART By Jim Linderman Pioneer folk art collector Herbert Hemphill, Jr. was on a mission in the early 1970s. The first director of the nascent Museum of American Folk Art and compulsive collector of same intended to disprove the commonly understood belief that folk art had died with the emergence of 20th century popular culture. Certainly there were artists working at the time using the same traditiona... [more]

Taking a Museum of African Art to the Bank   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Meschac Gaba at KunstHall - Deutsche Bank September 20th - November 16th
Posted 10/30/14

When the world thinks of Africa at the moment, the conversation seems to stop on the deadly West African virus, Ebola. For a less alarmist and fear-stoked impression of a massive continent, Meschac Gaba’s Museum of Contemporary African Art (1997-2002), on view at Berlin’s Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle until November 16, is currently offering insights through the eyes of one money-minded artist from Benin. Funny coincidence this show is hosted by a Deutsche Bank-sponsored gallery, as German... [more]

Interview with Chaim van Luit: A hunter-gatherer with his own assembly line  
by
10/27/14 Posted 10/27/14

Amsterdam, Oct. 2014: Some people are called to the arts by way of a detour, but Chaim van Luit’s route is exceptional by any standard. Being a bit too restless for the regular educational system he dropped out of high school at 17 and joined the marines. He traveled the world working ten-hour shifts for months on end. At the end of his four-year tour he decided it was time for a change. After taking a special entry exam he was accepted at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht. He laid dow... [more]

It's (OFF)icelle: FIAC Is Cool   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

at FIAC October 22nd - October 26th
Posted 10/23/14

There's something new happening at FIAC this year. Not exactly the quickest to catch on to a trend, the Parisian art fair has created its own satellite, with a focus on introducing new art and artists from the international scene through a showcase of 68 galleries from 14 countries. Judged by a selection panel of art historians and curators, the tangential fair's emphasis is on supporting the underdog—not only the up-and-comings, but also "outsiders" and artists who have been overlooked h...

5 Zine Producers You Need to Know   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 10/22/14

Zines—short run and independently produced miniature magazines—have been a staple tool in various underground communities for decades. While traces of the zine aesthetic can be followed back throughout history, the true imagery of the contemporary zine was fathered back in the 1980s with punk rock culture being the topic of choice. Early punks would take their Xeroxed sketches, photos, literary musings—and whatever else their bleeding hearts desired—and compile them into sma... [more]

30 Years of The Turner Prize: 10 Most Notorious Entries  
by
Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips, James Richards, Tris Vonna-Michell at Tate Britain 10/19/14 Posted 10/19/14

It's Turner Prize time again. Britain’s most hated art award celebrates its 30th year this year. What has it achieved in over three decades? For one thing – its brought contemporary British art to the public attention – mostly to be lampooned by the tabloids. Who can forget headlines surrounding Tracey Emin’s winning entry My Bed (dubbed ‘My Turd’ by Private Eye) or the fury roused by Damien Hirst’s formaldehyde tiger shark entry in 1992? The “national joke” has provoked walk outs and protests (the Stuckist... [more]

Who is Responsible for the American Dream?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Josef Strau at Renaissance Society September 21st - November 9th
Posted 10/17/14

I had a dream a couple years ago in which a new, previously unknown continent was discovered on Earth. The knowledge entered my consciousness first like the ambient news of a radio dispatch. It was an impersonal knowledge, born through the slippery medium of dream space, the source of the transmission overlooked as my dream self wondered instead about the profound consequence such a discovery might have on the rest of humankind. The next thing I remember is that I stood on the ground of the new cou... [more]

We've already recommeded Disabled Theatre, a "hip hop party"-like performance, and a Frieze Project at the zoo. Here are a few more events and performances to look out for this week: Part of ICA London's Off-Site programme during Frieze this year is a series of panel discussions organized in collaboration with Rhizome. Taking place from Wednesday to Friday, the three panels of "Do you Follow? Art in Circulation" will focus on the politics of digital circulation and its effect on contemporary art... [more]

Ed Fornieles at Chisenhale Gallery September 19th - November 9th
Posted 10/12/14

In the run up to Ed Fornieles’ solo show, Chisenhale Gallery's Instagram feed was peppered with quick-moving pictures of wholesome family activities—brightly colored breakfast cereals, food porn and sleeping infants, angelic kids growing up to uplifting muzak, hand-holding—some of which descend into destruction, fire, or violence. Other images remained open-ended, such as the repeated phrase "Be Yourself." Fornieles, a British artist now working in LA, who was part of Sarah McC... [more]

How to get an honest opinion about your artwork   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Jonas Lund at Boetzelaer|Nispen September 6th - October 11th
Posted 10/9/14

"Empty, alienating, soul-less, superficial, formulaic, repetitive, awkward, thick, one-dimensional… Imitation of bad work does not flatter." "Yet another denim jeans riff on Yves Klein." "DESTROY." These are the types of criticisms Jonas Lund’s paintings have been receiving lately, but the Amsterdam-based Swedish artist is likely unconcerned. The offending artworks were not yet his—and it appears they never will be. While the works were made at his behest following guidelines from a 300... [more]

The Matchbox Series.  
by
10/7/14 Posted 10/7/14

Many of the pictures featured on my site are part of the Matchbox Series. Here I have used matchbox fronts as a starting point for paintings. The variety of typography and visual elements gave me inspiration for colour treatments and contextual references. The idea of using matchboxes has it's own link to a past, a world which has all but dissapeared today. The marriage of contemporary painting and old graphic design is of interest to me, as a certain pathos results when the old, often iconic, oft... [more]
