Irish Photographer Richard Mosse was awarded the prestigious Deutsche Börse Photography Prize for his stunning photo series and film installation documenting, in unsettlingly bright pinks and brilliant fuchsias, the armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Mosse was presented with the award, including a £30 thousand prize, at The Photographers’ Gallery in London yesterday. For The Enclave, Mosse spent two years embedded with rebel forces in the war-torn eastern reg... [more]

Meredith James at Jack Hanley Gallery- New York > New York

Posted 4/4/14

The red-and-white checked, anamorphic floor of Meredith James’s video installation Delmar, showing through April 13th at the Jack Hanley Gallery, primes viewers to expect a puzzle. The video triptych behind the green velvet curtains at the far end of the gallery doesn’t disappoint. As a form, the triptych can be traced from the painted altarpieces of the early Renaissance to modern films. Before the now standard use of widescreen in film, Abel Gance made use of a triptych format to... [more]

Land-Art Legend Nancy Holt Passes On (1938-2014)

2/13/14 Posted 2/13/14

Sun Tunnels (1976) via CLUI Photographer, videographer, and sculptor Nancy Holt, 75, passed away Saturday in Manhattan after fighting a long battle with Leukemia. Holt, best known for her monumental sized sculptures in Southwest, was one of the first, and most notable, pioneers of the Land-art movement of the 60s and 70s. She was a rarity in her time, both as a woman in an art world still largely dominated by men and as an artist eschewing the gallery for on-site installations. Over her fif... [more]

The exhibition is good, and congrats to the artist. A good friend of mine told me a rather disturbing story recently. He had been working with scott for years, and scott has helped him a great deal. Recently scott has not been able to sell as much art to pay his bills and has resorted to throwing events to sustain his gallery. Scott openly admits his failure, in his bathroom there is a painting that says 'BLACKBALL' which he says he got an employee to make in order to remind him how his ex-wife ha... [more]

After the first quick round of Art Synthesis, the eyes quickly bookmark certain works and artists for the latter, slower rounds but the mind, hungry for a single thread of narrative, doesn't find any. On contemplation, that turns out to be the mind's problem, not the artists'. So used our minds are with picking up a curator's text on entrance and viewing the entire exhibition through that lense, that they suddenly feel ill-at-ease when they have to be the meaningmakers themselves. It turns out tha... [more]

Eva Fidjeland, Jane Walker at Galerie Stexwig > Berlin

I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images. In general, the softened color palette and contrast evokes a faded memory, but the primary forms have a bold function. `Evolution´ employs a primordial form, spiraling up out of the water like a mythic sea creature. I also see the faintly grainy quality and washed out magenta tonality as harkening back to old photographic documentary film, though I`m unsure of the media/process employed here. I find the vertical orientation is also unexpected fo... [more]

Using industrial dyes and rolled, burnished sheets of metal, Ando’s surfaces radiate luminous color, tantalizing the eye with a palette of s... [more]

Matt Nichols - Cellar Door With artists like the Yes Men, Ai Weiwei, Jenny Holzer and Alfredo Jaar leading the charge, social practices rooted in political activism, investigative journalism and documentarian strategies have taken center stage. The effects have been palpable with contemporary art criticism focusing on notions of use value, “educational efficacy”, and quotients of truth rather than art’s capacity to “invite us to confront the more complicated considerations...
