Most Art (In the New Whitney Museum) Sucks BY URI DOWBENKO

5/27/15 Posted 5/27/15

"If it commands attention, it's Culture. If it matches the sofa, it’s Art.” -- Artist Robert Williams So let us begin by paraphrasing those Coagula Bad Boys Walter Robinson, Mat Gleason and Charlie Finch with this review of the New Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. Or, let’s say, like they do in L.A., 25 words or less – Fugly Building. Fugly Art. Crashing the Whitney on FREE day Saturday May 2, 2015 was as fun as it could be. Seein... [more]

Needless to say, communication is of great help for numerous reasons, especially in the present times where new communication tools are constantly arriving at the scene to promote the exercise. Effective communication is valuablefor the dissemination of messages without disrupting the actual meaning and establishing cordial relations with others. If a message is vague, bearing no relevance, all the hard work may come to a nought. Behind every successful communication, there is always a magical force... [more]

漂流音韵  
by
5/26/15 Posted 5/26/15

漂流音韵 相思草渐逝被红色粉尘轧制 天和地被悲伤繁华的总理分隔 天雨夏的岸边无限柔情缠绕你的身体 落在地上的雪只能重新飞翔 雪线之间是从三面追击我走到哪儿 哪儿就成为持续的爱担心的恨 已溶解到枕边的梦想安慰耳语初恋的诗 音韵学漂流作为高亢的情绪 与安静的声音在梦中打开的心结 抽泣着的了愿望从来不能实现啊 古代雕刻一代又一代的温暖到现在 在这个时间心隐隐隐隐作痛 但生活浪漫的夜晚田地和稻秧一样 和她随便接触忽然转折的时候 她大方地让行人跨过她的清彻潺潺的水流 她的谈吐是是学者的语言而不是小家的谈吐 她的律调和土地和水是同宗的 她的流水对于大地上的黄绿的财富毫不怀妒 爱的银行希望来到水中和厚泥陪伴 喝醉了的誓言是永恒的风景 欣赏持久性小笔画下跌大橡树 难过的卷云云也有舒适安静的时候, 默默地对自己说坚强 只有我还在 [more]

当代艺术究竟打哪来?  
by
5/26/15 Posted 5/26/15

当代艺术究竟打哪来? 18世纪末,人们在不断从新的角度深究艺术的本质和各种艺术门类之间的关系,法国美术学家阿贝·马托的分类原则上所建立的艺术分类已不能系统地界定日趋纷繁复杂的艺术现象。19世纪,艺术理论家们进一步试图用各种方式对艺术进行分类,有的以主体的感觉器官如视觉器官或听觉器官来分类;有的把艺术分为空间艺术或时间艺术,有的把艺术分类成再现艺术或非再现艺术。这种探索艺术分类新方式的努力,现当代艺术“粉碎了每一种艺术已往所具有的,为多数人所认可的那种传统尺度和界标。这一变化首先带来的是人们不再像过去那样,在传统标准的意义上对各种艺术进行分类,而不得不去重新研究各门艺术的特征究竟发生了什么变化,继续进行对某一种艺术形式的独特本质进行研究,或在此基础上转入对构成各种艺术的最共同的本质加以研究。自由使用各门类如装置艺术等等艺术手段,表明人类表达思想观念的艺术方式是无法用机械的分类来界定的。由于现代艺术表现手段和材料的令人眼花缭乱的变化,依靠不断更新艺术分类原则,把规律化强加给无规律变化的艺术现象,不但无助于认识日日更新的艺术,到头来只会弄得人们无所适从。不受限制地综合使用多门类的艺术形式,是现代艺术追求表现广度,深度和强度...

FLUX: Dawn of the Harlem Art Fair  
by
5/25/15 Posted 5/25/15

Last weekend, Harlem welcomed the FLUX Art Fair - its first contemporary art fair. The event launched with a VIP reception on Wednesday, May 13th and was open to the public Thursday, May 14th through Sunday, the 17th. FLUX had been hard-fought by its organizer, Leanne Stella of Art in Flux -especially with the building under hard-hat construction up to the eleventh hour. All came together beautifully in the end, and the FLUX Art Fair waxed luminous against a backdrop of higher profile art ev... [more]

Jewelry's Triumphant Return  
by
5/24/15 Posted 5/24/15

This season, I was inspired to take on a Trunk Show at The Studio Museum in Harlem. It would feature works from my (little-known, but once wildly popular) jewelry collection. Patrons and friends whom I've known for a very long time are familiar with this work; most newer friends know me as an artist, curator and writer, and have only seen the few jewelry pieces I wear everyday, almost like a uniform. I asked for and agreed to this show without realizing that it had been at least two years since I... [more]

美国当代文化思潮一瞥  
by
5/24/15 Posted 5/24/15

美国当代文化思潮一瞥 当代艺术 Contemporary Art 的时期和定义众说纷纭,且不同的国家和地区具体情况也不同。以当代艺术的主体西方而论述,当代艺术一般指从二十世纪中后期到目前的艺术。是当前这个时代正在实践中的艺术风格。二十世纪初期,西方艺术的中心逐渐从巴黎转移到了纽约,形式主义有了新面貌和新实质,纽约的抽象表现主义风靡一时,这一后现代历史时期的艺术方式至今仍被许多艺术家沿用。现代主义后期出现的后现代主义,和当代艺术刚开始时也被称为后现代艺术,是反对现代艺术Modern Art的艺术。而今当代艺术在内涵上主要指具有现代精神和具备现代语言的艺术。有些史学家认为,不是所有标记为当代艺术的艺术都是后现代、或者所有的后现代艺术都是当代艺术,但是更普遍的看法是,当代艺术的广泛概念是包括后现代主义以及其它现代主义和迟现代主义甚至当今流传的传统艺术形态的艺术。 美国当代艺术的面貌是多元性的面貌.这种多元性的面貌表现在以下两个方面;一是艺术家成员构成的多元化:九十年代以前的美国艺术家绝大多数是由男性白人构成的,到了九十年代出现了女性艺术家,有色人种艺术家;二是创作手段上的多元化:艺术家通过体悟生活,用各种手段表达作者对生活的看法,表达对人类社会生存状...

A Battle Lost rolled paper handmade from military uniforms, gold foil & matte medium101" x 52" x 6"2015 Photo credit to Chris Gray with CS Gray Photography. This work represents the 22 veterans that take their own lives every day. 8,030 rolls make up A Battle Lost, one for every veteran suicide last year. I roll the paper to create a spiral, a symbol of life to death, beginning to end. The gold is inspired by a Japanese practice called Kintsugi where they fill cracks in pottery with gold. This highlights the... [more]
