Art or Not? Visitors to the museum or fine art institution are often concerned about being the butt of an artist's joke, not privy to some marketing ploy, where they are statiscial cogs in a machine churning out money for ideas. But wouldn't it be a fine thing if we could make artworks out of experience—removing the need for product, structure, and market, altogether? This week: Awkward mishaps happen. But which of the images described below is a clandestine capture of a situation staged by a very ra... [more]

Posted 8/22/15

by Alexandra Chipkin On the evening of August 13th Guilmi seemed to be waking up. A cacophony of voices could be heard as townspeople and visitors gathered in a small piazza to listen to stories beingread aloud from inside a van. Later this van was opened up to reveal photographs lining the inside of the car: forming a small gallery. This gallery is in fact the perfect size for this town of no more than 200 people. The exhibition is called Avanzi, or leftovers. It is the result of about three we... [more]

They call it “Marbs.” Some of them do, anyway—not the real deal money; not 'Tony' and 'Mel' Banderas-Griffiths, whose beach-front palace’s lease, quite tragically, outlived their marriage—but the ones who are there for an earthier breed of bacchanal: the drunks, the San Tropez tanners, the motor-mouthed swimsuit babes, the rutting Croyden bucks—and so on, and so forth. Breasts as buoyant as puppies; pectorals as tight as spinster's mouths: the strip on Puerto... [more]

She performs the same speech in German with a slight variation. Both girls perform the same character—a character modeled after manga character Ann Lee. In their combined acting, they agree to share the personality of a constructed character schizophrenically. They (she) perform an idea of identity that has been crafted... [more]

Two boys crouch on either side of the wall that separates the West Bank from Jerusalem. They are smuggling 1,000 loaves of Ka’ak Al Quds (“bread of Jerusalem”) through a hand-bored hole in the concrete. Ramallah-based artist Khaled Jarrar interviews them from behind an unsteady camera. “Pull! Pull!” urges the older boy. Dust from both the flour and the wall is seen as the younger child collects the bread on the other side in a makeshift production line. The zero-shap... [more]
