Michael Hall and Yhelena Hall at THE MISSION July 10th - August 22nd
Posted 8/18/15

By: Amy Haddad Michael and Yhelena Hall’s thought-provoking installation at The Mission in Chicago does more than draw attention to the environment. This show reveals practical solutions to contemporary problems. Partial exhibition shot of “Wilderness and Household.” Creating artwork that generates awareness to environmental issues is nothing new. Agnes Denes famously created “Wheatfield” in 1982. Two acres of wheat were planted and harvested in a Manhattan l... [more]

Mining Northern New Mexico: Human-made Tools to Solve Human-made Problems   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Jonathan Blaustein, Nina Elder, Debbie Long at University of New Mexico Harwood Museum of Art February 22nd, 2014 - May 4th, 2014
Posted 3/28/14

In the stark, grandiose landscapes of Northern New Mexico, it is easy to see the human element as small. Significant to be sure, but comparatively outweighed by the beauty and immensity that radiates so gracefully and quietly from big-sky vistas. Compared to the dramatic landscape, the human presence is more akin to interference, a disruption of the Wild West. The byproducts of this human disruption therefore mar the land more visibly and more violently against the backdrop of high desert and moun... [more]

Land-Art Legend Nancy Holt Passes On (1938-2014)  
by
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 fifty-year... [more]

by
2/5/12 Posted 2/5/12

Originally posted on matthewfelixsun.blogspot.com Despite the rule I made that I would only cite two pieces from each museum I've visited, I decided to cite a third from the De Young Museum, San Francisco. The reason for this exception is that I just lost a dear friend, and it was only recently we visited that museum together. I am left with an indelible image of my friend in front of the piece I want to cite today. I will forever cherish the memory of her, from many times and places, inclu... [more]
