Classic Graffiti Movie Portrays New York Scene in the '70s  
by
10/8/14 Posted 10/8/14

Take the train that shuttles from Grand Central Terminal to Times Square. It’s a short ride, dependably stocked with commuters, and reliably taken over by advertisers who cover every available inch with glossy graphics. The inside and the outside of every car get the full treatment—so that you can’t possible ignore their call to purchase. In New York City, the advertisers have us by the eyeballs. In the seventies, the battle for public space was not yet won. In fact, subway car... [more]

Interview with Wendelien van Oldenborgh: Between cinematic reality and polyphonic clash

10/6/14 Posted 10/6/14

Amsterdam, Oct. 2014: She felt honored to have been nominated for the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art. The list of previous recipients is impressive: Carel Visser, Peter Struycken, Mark Manders, and Daan van Golden are among them. With a cool 100,000 euro attached in prize money, it’s one of the biggest art awards in Europe (for comparison: Turner Prize winners get 40,000 pounds, roughly half of that amount). But Wendelien van Oldenborgh did not expect to win the award, which she received la... [more]

My first introduction to performance art that reclaims public and architectural spaces was meeting the brilliantNoemie LaFrance, acclaimed site-specific Choreographer, Director and Producer of Sens Production, in 2003 in New York City. Subsequently I attended her debut work, "Descent" which took place on a spiraling staircase. Having also created a piece on a stairwell that I'd titled the same name, I connected with LaFrance's creative vision. Here is my "Descent" image which I shot in 1999 ato... [more]

We’re pumped to be doing our first #Instaresidency, where we hand over our Instagram to an artist for a week and let them sort out the rest. First up: digital artist and filmmaker Theodore Darst. Darst first caught our attention through an exhibition, Only Real, in 2014 and then on Instagram with his dynamic animations playing with form, depth, and Macklemore. Using a range of digital software programs from CINEMA 4D After Effects to Photoshop, Darst abstracts his subjects through addin... [more]

Harun Farocki, 1944–2014  
by
8/4/14 Posted 8/4/14

Monopol magazine reported Thursday that German filmmaker Harun Farocki passed away on June 30, 2014, at the age of 70. Born in German-annexed Czechoslovakia in 1944, the Berlin-based artist was known not only for his provocative films, videos, and installations, but also his critical practice as a theorist, editor, curator, and educator. Farocki studied at the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB) from 1966 to 1968. He would later become editor of the Munich-based journal Filmkritik a... [more]

Ashish Avikunthak at Chatterjee & Lal Gallery June 27th - August 2nd
Posted 7/6/14

In Rati Chakravyuh, filmmaker Ashish Avikunthak presents several conceits. A single take of 102 minutes in a 105-minute film, screened as a very large projection at Chatterjee & Lal, has Rati, the Goddess of Love in Hindu mythology explored as the notion of desire through the ages, and Chakravyuh (a military formation mentioned in the Hindu epic Mahabharata that consists of a labyrinth of concentric circles) used as a defense mechanism. It’s a gauntlet that Avikunthak throws down from the sta... [more]

When I think of Midnight Movies I timeslip to the early 90s and all-nighters at the Scala in London's Kings Cross. The imagery is that of The Trip, Eraserhead, Vanishing Point, and Blue Sunshine. The aroma is of popcorn and hashish, the taste—cheap stimulants and vodka. I think of a motley crew of film geeks and freaks who have stumbled out of the pub at closing, dashed to the off license, and now gather inside the crumbling flea pit for an all night fix of kitsch, action, and high weirdn...

The Media Man Around Town (and the World): Li Zhenhua and Art Basel Hong Kong’s Film Sector   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 5/15/14

Li Zhenhua began our conversation with a gentle correction: he had three exhibitions opening in one month, not three exhibitions opening over as many months. I was reminded of these words as Li’s disembodied voice greeted me at Chronus Art Center in Shanghai last week during the opening of a satellite exhibition for “Pandamonium: Media Art from Shanghai,” an exhibition co-curated with David Elliott in Berlin. Unable to attend the show’s simultaneous openings in Berlin and Shanghai, Li introduced “Pand... [more]

Posted 4/26/14

The first three weeks of April in Toronto are host to the 27th incarnation of the Images Festival, which bills itself as the largest festival in North America for "experimental and independent moving image culture." It offers a much needed and relieving, counter to the Toronto International Film Festival. The Images Festival focuses primarily on video art, far too often only seen in the rarefied spaces of contemporary art galleries, and smaller independent films that would perhaps not be showcased...

Hans Richter at Martin-Gropius-Bau March 27th - June 30th
Posted 4/2/14

The movie camera – that bastard son of a thousand alchemists, illusionists, inventors, and old showmen – could have been purpose built for the Dadaists and the Surrealists. If it had slipped into obscurity or been written off as gimmick after they had made use of it, its journey into existence could have been said to be worthwhile. It's as if their paths were always destined to cross. In the Hans Richter show Encounters – "From Dada till today" at Martin-Gropius-Bau you can se... [more]

Los Angeles, Mar. 2014: Allison Schulnik’s second New York solo exhibition at ZieherSmith, Eager, included a startling array of painting, sculpture, drawing, and film, creating a beautiful, yet haunting world. Her work is currently on view in a solo exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut. Schulnik talks with Bradley Rubenstein about her new show, her dance background, the difference between working in New York and Los Angeles, and, of course, cats. Allison Schulnik, Blue Dancer #3...

In the first of seven films in a series dealing with love between men and women (started in 2009 and proposed to end in 2019), a man sits down on a bus in Bucharest, Romania and telephones his wife or girlfriend. He becomes increasingly threatening and verbally violent, compulsively repeating the same questions and accusations over and over in a sort of trance-like loop. Troleibuzul 92 (Bus number 92) (2009) depicts a very private and intimate conversation that is played out in the public space,... [more]
