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]

Posted 6/30/15

Three rooms into the modern art section of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya the film Tide Table is projected on the wall. It’s a typical William Kentridge piece: animated black and white drawings, frolicking bathers are observed by Ghadhafi-like generals, a cow is slaughtered in a cabana, lots of political innuendo. Even though the film is combined with a couple of drawings by the South African artist, it’s pretty much a stand-alone presentation. It lacks the kind of conte... [more]

Will Benedict's Sordid Americana  
by
Will Benedict at Bortolami Gallery June 11th - August 1st
Posted 6/29/15

The thematic centerpiece of Paris-based artist Will Benedict’s solo show at Bortolami is The Bed That Eats, a six-minute animated video with music by Michigan-based noise duo Stare Case. The soundtrack opens with electronic scrawl, an aimless bass melody, and occasional shakes of a maraca. The video, meanwhile, portrays an undressed bed, hyperrealistic and monochromatic, in an empty windowless room. When Stare Case vocalist Nate Young’s voice pierces through the hitherto sparse, inst... [more]

Olga Stefan: Could you describe for us what this all-encompassing category of... [more]

Video is an exceedingly difficult medium to wrangle into a gallery space: Do you serve it up movie theater-style, with chairs and set screening times? Do you play it on a loop and allow people to walk in and out? Headphones or no headphones? Video demands long looking, but it rarely gets it. How many times have you watched mere seconds of a work of video art before turning to something else? Actually maybe a better question, how many times have you actually watched a work of video art from beginni... [more]

Penis Envy: Sturtevant in Los Angeles   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 6/3/15

"Oh God, it's coming up now, I recognize the sound... I mean, I don't need to see this when I'm at work!" We looked on fearfully as a large-scale penis enters stage left, in profile, and decants a trickle of urine onto an unsuspecting potted plant. This was Dark Threat of Absence (2002) a two channel projection at the center (physically and thematically) of the only comprehensive institutional presentation of Elaine Sturtevant's work in America since the '70s (the show has traveled to L.A. after it's New York de...

The camera floats through a slap-dash architectural model, following a trickle of water originating from a fountain stuck through a passport picture, gargoyle-style, flowing past miniature cities consisting of slabs of transparent plastic, slipping into a next scene. Garishly colored deserts are bombarded with Jell-O and chocolate sprinkles. Fruit is hooked up to seriously scientific machines with electric cables. And TV-commercials from the eighties spin out of control. In the meantime the swinging sou... [more]

This Is Not a Music Video: A Video Art Playlist   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 6/1/15

“Video killed the radio star,” The Buggles sang in 1979. The song brims with nostalgic longing for a simpler, low-tech era that was more authentic and wholesome. Two years later MTV was launched, the first television network to non-stop broadcast music videos. With a self-congratulating sense of irony the programmers selected “Video Killed the Radio Star” as the first clip to be shown. The event may not have marked the actual death of the radio star but it did introduce a... [more]

Transgender identities are coming of age with a global platform and widening acceptance. Gender fluidity is not yet accepted in all countries and cultures and therein lies the latest challenge of the multi-faceted identity of being transgender, implying a journey from birth to re-assigned identity and a dual cultural heritage inherited as a consequence. Trans identities are becoming more culturally accepted in the West and new neuro-biological research is also contributing to the debate and suggestin... [more]

Made-Up with Danny Volk: S1E15 with Theaster Gates   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 5/28/15

Danny Volk talks to artists in their studios about life and art—while they do his make-up. This concept was a new one for us, and, unsurprisingly, it produces some unique moments: see artists like Theaster Gates, Pope.L, and Jessica Stockholder working in their studios as you've never seen them before. In this week's season 1 finale: "I'm learning a lot about myself right now." Turns out Theaster Gates is a natural at make up application. He also tells Danny about being a university profe...

Last weekend, Harlem welcomed the FLUX Art Fair - its first contemporary art fair. The event launched with a VIP reception on Wednesday, May 13th and was open to the public Thursday, May 14th through Sunday, the 17th. FLUX had been hard-fought by its organizer, Leanne Stella of Art in Flux -especially with the building under hard-hat construction up to the eleventh hour. All came together beautifully in the end, and the FLUX Art Fair waxed luminous against a backdrop of higher profile art ev... [more]
