“Art of Jazz: Form/Performance/Notes” - Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art jeffrey mcnary (CAMBRIDGE, MA) Jazz is disobedient. Let’s start there. Born in America, long before being considered, "cool", or perhaps “hip”, it was something to be picked up with fingers, to be eaten by hand. Only later it worked its way into the global fabric, leaping across oceans and into concert halls, and finally holding a catalogue and canon all its own. Still... [more]

By Deborah Root The three figures standing tall in Keepers of the Earth greet us as they invite us into their world. Substantial and strong, delighted with the produce they offer, they become iconic images of cocoa production in Grenada. The large size of the canvas (96” x 88”) ennobles these cocoa workers, transforming individuals into nearly mythical personas, who themselves transmute the products of the earth into something precious and rare. Yet their images are not static, as M... [more]

Siera Hyte, Installation views of Me and the king, 2015 © Siera Hyte, Courtesy of Queer Thoughts, New York. For a pint-sized, square room, Queer Thoughts’ current Tribeca location doesn’t afford much in terms of spatial twists and turns. That didn’t deter things here; the newly arrived gallery from Chicago kept proceedings quick-witted, and edgy. However, much of that edge had to do with the Siera Hyte, the San Diego-based artist who warmed the space up for its first winter... [more]

'DESIRING TO BE DATA FOR OTHERS' Amanda Turner Pohan at FiveMyles GalleryBy curator: Carl E. Hazlewood for FiveMyles.- Feburary 2016 Installation Pictures: C. E. Hazlewood Amanda Turner Pohan's practice seems a cool and rational one—at first. It is based on precise scientific manipulation of chemistry with additional aural and visual elements. While her installation appears clean, methodical, a presentation organized with minimalist clarity and order, one senses a vague urgency to quantify the un-quantifiable. Vials contain various arcane liquids; vapors and perfumed formulas derive from 'recorded data measured by sensors of the heartbeat of the artist.' Yet, the clinical easily transmutes into the poetic and the personal. The effect is oddly sensual, even erotic as the artist manages an olfactory manipulation that is subtle and evocative. Finally, Pohan's creative processing, packaging, and ordering, conjures a self-portrait that becomes a metaphor for the bodied and disembodied nature of human response. At the entrance to the exhibition stands an ablution station filled with coffee beans and lemons to cleanse the olfactory palette. A freestanding glass shower recirculates a heated and steaming perfumed liquid through its system; hanging on the wall is a four by eight foot sheet of plexiglass with remnants of hair, dust, dirt, and skin from a carpet adhered to it. A parabolic speaker hangs from the ceiling and plays a looped conversation between two women; a collection of glass jars containing the fluid used in the shower is arranged on a shelf. The formula for the perfumed shower is derived from recorded data provided by sensors measuring the heartbeat of the artist. Residue adhering to the plexiglass is from the bedroom rug of Turner Pohan's's deceased mother. An interview between a female doctor and nurse attempting to quantify bodily sensations is looped on a speaker. The fluids in the glass vials will replenish or replace whatever the shower loses as a result of natural evaporation over time. ... [more]
