The show came about when curator Susan Isaacs, who teaches at Towson University, "started seeing a trend and realizing that a lot of artists were dealing with spiritual texts," said Gershman executive director Maxine Gaiber. The two worked together to bring the works to Philly." Read more at http://www.phil... [more]

(JEFFREY MCNARY) James Baldwin wrote, "The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions hidden by the answers." Few galleries of art hold true to that magnetic north like the recently opened Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art at Harvard University. In this space, stories dance. Tales unfold, enlightening and reminding of the African diaspora and its hopes, dreams, visions and tears. There's heavy traffic in such endeavors, with much wreckage on the roadside and splinters o... [more]

by
1/28/15 Posted 1/28/15

The prestigious Birla Academy of Art & Culture, Calcutta, will feature French artist Julien Segard with a solo booth presentation at this year’s India Art Fair. The selection of Segard’s recent drawings promises to be a provocative insight into the social fabric of Delhi—host city of the fair—and an urban muse which Segard calls "an unsettling extreme of contrasts." Segard is fearless and scrupulous in his studies of life lived on the streets. His most recent drawings foc... [more]

Posted 1/21/15

Zakir Hussain’s latest works at Gallery SKE in Bangalore is a wonderful presentation of works to understand that originality can only be claimed as an unclaimed, seen as the other in the final omnipresent grand narrative of itself. The claim to originality that his works make in the beginning is by having a title ‘no title’. This is very interesting as the self proclamation of having no title negates the presence of the trace of the past. If there is any c... [more]

Art or Not?

1/10/15 Posted 1/10/15

Art or Not? Who is to say what is art or not? One of the pictures with description below is a genuine art work: every Friday ArtSlant asks our discerning readers if they can spot the difference. This week, it's a bad hair day. #1 "Painted in two separate periods, this picture has a complex history. In its original state, it showed a pink-faced man, wearing a white shirt and a black suit. It was painted in a deliberately simple, naive style, using household, rather than oil paint, and incorporate... [more]

Selected by London-based writer Philippa Snow, ArtSlant's Page 3 Pin-Ups is an acerbic take on the topless tabloid muse. The new weekly series is inspired by Playboy’s Playmates, Page Three, and Letters To Penthouse: for anyone who’s ever muttered the phrase “fuck contemporary art” and really meant it. Today’s internet-smashing pin-up is notable for the fact she has everything the modern gentleman wants: an ass that won’t quit, one that Sir Mix-A-Lot (O.B.E.) would love.... [more]

Posted 11/13/14

Can graphic design ever truly be considered as a fine art form? Ren Adams has taken on that question by exploring the combination of printmaking and digital media into a collection of surreal two-dimensional images called “Alchemy of Image/The Language of Information Space.” These graphic pieces are striking aesthetically, yet leave something to be desired after initial observation. Adams blends an interest in history, science, technology, art, and basically everything about the... [more]

Published in http://www.artindiamag.com/quarter_04_03_14/index.html Acts of drawing are sometimes summed up as dirtying the paper delicately,1 but Ayesha Sultana’s drawings in Outside the field of view, her first solo at Experimenter, Kolkata, mounted from the 9th of May to the 26th of June, are anything but delicate. Sultana ‘dirties’ the paper vigorously and obsessively, while reining in her mark-marking within perfectly geometric shapes. Nine graphite drawings of various si... [more]
