ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [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]

Art or Not?

Art or Not? Do you ever walk into a gallery, and feel like you're missing something? Art can sometimes confuse you. But what does make something art, or not? Is it context, words, or the audience, who says what flies in the gallery? Every week, we ask our readers to stop taking the art world so seriously for a little minute and try and play a game of spot the difference. This week: which of the unusual scenes below is documents a performance exhibited at a Welsh art institute? #1 Staged in the glo... [more]

The Best of Basel's Free Events   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 6/16/15

It's said that there is “no free lunch,”—but what about some free art events in Basel? Yes, it's June, and it's time for Art Basel again. It may not as exotic a location as Miami or Hong Kong, but the old European continent offers a deep-rooted history and relatively compact scale of events (at least compared to its Miami mega-offshoot) in the cozy Swiss town at the corner of three nations. Audiences are increasingly interested in attending openings, museum shows, and art fairs and it... [more]

Posted 6/15/15

While all eyes are on Basel, there’s a different crowd who are skipping the annual summer commercial art fair route altogether. Some of them might have been at the opening of the Nordic Biennial of Contemporary Art this weekend, Momentum. The 8th edition opened its doors with live video of a performance from a Kurdish-Swedish pop songstress, Oculus Goggles, and an installation made of synthetic hair. Shoplifter's hair sculpture, Installation View. Photo: Nadja Sayej Such things are alw... [more]

5/27/15 Posted 5/27/15

"If it commands attention, it's Culture. If it matches the sofa, it’s Art.” -- Artist Robert Williams So let us begin by paraphrasing those Coagula Bad Boys Walter Robinson, Mat Gleason and Charlie Finch with this review of the New Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. Or, let’s say, like they do in L.A., 25 words or less – Fugly Building. Fugly Art. Crashing the Whitney on FREE day Saturday May 2, 2015 was as fun as it could be. Seein... [more]

by
Posted 5/26/15

When Dries Verhoeven decided to put himself—and all his Grindr dating app interactions—on public display in real time in Berlin last fall, he had no idea the sort of community outrage he’d be met with. Now the Dutch artist’s controversial performance Wanna Play? Love in Times of Grindr is back—with edits—after its Berlin debut was shut down 5 days into a 15-day run last October. For the duration of the performance (10 days in its current iteration) Verhoeven lives... [more]
