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]

The Best Public Art Installations & Murals Around The World This Fall  
by
8/29/15 Posted 8/29/15

One of the best things I read about the status of art in the public space this year was written by Edo Dijksterhuis "it becomes like urban furniture, not something people notice. No one seems to care about monuments or how they’re perceived, whether they’re perceived at all. It takes a conscious effort to really see them again." This really made me think: public art is a huge committment but it's true, it rarely has the ability to genuinely make us look, or re-look, let alone change... [more]

Edgar Degas: Capturing Unconscious Moments  
by
Edgar Degas at The Art Institute of Chicago July 1st - February 6th, 2016
Posted 8/28/15

By: Amy Haddad Edgar Degas, “Little Dancer Aged Fourteen.” Many consider Edgar Degas an Impressionist artist—a painter of modern life. That he was, though different than some of his contemporaries. He called himself a “Realist.” Rather than painting plein air landscapes, using color, light and shade to capture fleeting moments, as Monet and other Impressionists famously did, Degas captured everyday movements in the theater, at the ballet or the cafés he frequente...

Knock-Off Art and Tales of Artistic Production in Advanced Capitalism   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 8/27/15

I was recently at an art fair where one gallery—that shall remain nameless—presented the work of a young artist in a solo booth. The work, while distinct in some ways, was at the very least derivative of Anish Kapoor’s wall mounted discs. Enameled aluminum panels in sweeping gradients, they were perfectly suited to the market of the fair: take it home, put it on a wall. They were robust, large works that shouted “wealth.” Sold for $800-$2000 apiece. By the third da... [more]

Amir H. Fallah Creates a Portrait in Cactus and Lava Lamps in The Caretaker   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Amir H. Fallah at Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art May 28th - September 27th
Posted 8/25/15

Amir H. Fallah’s portraits resemble the site of an archaeological dig. When Howard Carter discovered King Tut’s tomb, the young pharaoh’s body was wrapped in shrouds with his material possessions painstakingly arranged around him. Likewise, Fallah incorporates everyday objects from a subject’s home into ornate, unconventional portraits that obscure the figure’s face, finding profound connections in the seemingly mundane and charm in the ugly. It’s not coincidental t... [more]

Space in All of Its Capacities

at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) May 9th - October 4th
Posted 8/21/15

By: Amy Haddad Kris Martin, “T.Y.F.F.S.H.” The “S, M, L, XL” exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Chicago is a small but compelling show. The exhibition opens explaining how some sculptors in the 1960s moved art from the pedestal into the viewer’s space. This theme has continued over the past five decades in various sizes, as the exhibition’s title suggests. As visitors experience the physical and mental attributes of space, they may begin to...

Sculptures We Do Not See, an exhibition showcasing Soviet Era art, opened last Friday at Moscow's Manege Center. The exhibition included works from participants of the LeSS group, active in parallel to conventional art of the Soviet era, including artists such as Vadim Sidur, Nikolai Silis, and Vladimir Lemport. Topics surrounding the works include religious themes—a censored subject during Russia’s Soviet reign between 1922 and 1991. Decades after creation, and the sculptures stil... [more]

Michael Hall and Yhelena Hall at THE MISSION July 10th - August 22nd

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]

It isn’t often that you get the chance to look into the workings of a family of artists over three generations, laying themselves open to scrutiny and speculation on their relationships. With the age of the artists ranging from the mature seventies to the youthful twenties, the work is bound to be wildly diversified; from the skilled and honed creativity of one generation to the enthusiastic optimism of another, with all sharing a dedication to, and love of, the arts, each exploring and de...
