by
12/18/14 Posted 12/18/14

Art or Not? Who is to say what is art or not? One of the pictures with description below is a genuine art work: every Friday ArtSlant asks our discerning readers if they can spot the difference.

First Look at Ólafur Elíasson's Inaugural Exhibition at the Louis Vuitton Foundation  
by
12/18/14 Posted 12/18/14

We're huge Ólafur Eliasson fans at ArtSlant. His sensitivity to site-specificity and deft hand at magical transformation through the merging of science and art is unique to say the least. Eliasson was tapped by the Louis Vuitton Foundation and their curatorial team lead by Suzanne Pagé to innaugurate Paris' newest museum designed by starchitect, Frank Gehry. Eliasson's installation Inside the Horizon—a series of mirrored, yellow columns—will also be permanently fe... [more]

Art or Not? Mattresses

11/6/14 Posted 11/6/14

Art or Not? One of the pictures described below is a genuine art work: every Friday the ArtSlant team asks our discerning readers to indulge in a game of spot the difference. The answer will be revealed on our social media on Monday: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram. This week's theme is: mattresses. #1 "the artist, born in Glasgow, 1982, uses public space in this series of street interventions, where the artwork becomes part of it's background, barely perceived by the hurried commuter. Discarded every day objects and household items appear t... [more]

Forgotten time capsule found in Boston lion sculpture  
by
9/25/14 Posted 9/25/14

via Wikimedia Commons When copper statues of a gold lion and silver unicorn were installed above Boston's Old State House in 1901, the majestic creatures weren’t the only objects left for posterity. Inside the lion’s head was a sealed copper box filled with “things that will prove interesting when the box is opened many years hence,” wrote The Boston Globe at the time. The future is now. Earlier this month the lion and unicorn sculptures—emblems representing the b... [more]

Robots Lost at Sea: Tracking an Artwork Adrift in the Atlantic Ocean  
by
9/24/14 Posted 9/24/14

On September 9th, a robot was released into the Gulf of Mexico, set adrift in the Gulf Stream. Off the southern tip of Portugal its transatlantic counterpart awaits sendoff into the strong Canary Current this week. Once offshore, these passive robots—floating spheres one-meter in diameter with sensors submerged below sea level—will be left on their own, without human intervention. Their mission: to unite in the middle of the Atlantic, carried only by currents and the forces of nat... [more]

Mungo Thomson at Kadist Art Foundation > San Francisco
September 17th - November 1st
Posted 9/18/14

Mungo Thompson fancies himself clever. He thinks that public affirmations of private struggle are curious, and can’t wrap his pretty little middle class head around the idea that they might be empowering. He likes Bruce Nauman’s neon spiral form… he likes the idea that it takes up a commercial vehicle to advertise non-commodity slogan. He thought it would be cute to rifle through self-help books and AA 12-step guides, pick out phrases, and pay somebody to fabricate neon spiral aff... [more]

by
Mike Kelley at MOCA Geffen Contemporary > Los Angeles
March 31st - July 28th
Posted 9/1/14

To borrow a thought from Deleuze and Guattari, art is not chaos, but a composition of chaos that makes possible a wide range of unpredictable new emotions and ideas. It pushes at the borders of the imagination, inviting new ways of seeing, and sharping our capacities for critical reflection. Truly powerful art may even change how we perceive our world, and re-situate our agency within it. The Mike Kelley retrospective (currently on view at LA MoCA), reminds me of a quote by filmmaker David Lyn... [more]
