Photograph Mag, Sept/Oct Issue
Like a fault line in the surface of appearances, photo collage opens up in periods of social stress and political obfuscation. In the 1880s, the playful cut and paste of Victorian albums betrayed a skepticism about photography’s ability to sustain memory and maintain the connection to a tradition that technology was rapidly effacing.
In the 1920s and ‘30s, collage mobilized images against themselves, recombining th... [more]
Office Life by Amy Haddad at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA)
May 23rd - September 6th
By: Amy Haddad
A five-piece art exhibition evokes how office life, and our world, is changing.
Eric Wesley, “DPS #9 (Pomegranate).”
The movie “Office Space” satirizes white collar office jobs during the 1990s, mocking the hierarchical structure, rows of cubicles and endless amount of paperwork found in office life. Although movies and television shows have parodied office life for years, conventions appear to be changing, as the virtual and physical worlds continue to collid... [more]

This exhibition is called Private and Confidential, the pieces are beautifully framed prints, that vibrate with luminous colour and luscious brush strokes, these seductive effects give a warm and enticing atmosphere to the imagery, but underneath is a certain and sudden shock as the mind realises the figurative imagery that challenges the imagination and beckons satire and paradox, and the cartoon, these seem to rent through the surface of appearances.....perhaps to comfort the knowing viewer wi...

Organised with Middlesex University, DEN-City1 is part of The London Festival of Architecture, a month long celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice.
I’ m sure I... [more]

Contemporary art and social activism often swim in the same waters. The connection crosses borders and decades, as creative individuals—in art and literature, performance and song—have given voice, sometimes the only one, to victims of turmoil and iniquities.
Issues, an exhibition in which a group of contemporary artists respond to political, social, racial, gender, and economic issues facing the world in recent years opened M... [more]

The 2010s are so 90s. The decade’s enduring nostalgia moment—perhaps first identified, or at least concretized in Portlandia’s hilarious 2011 pilot—endures longer still. Look no further than this Jimmy Fallon Saved by the Bell reunion sketch, one of the most joyful things circulating the internet this week, to feel the prevailing 90s love.
We’re seeing 90s allusions in fashion’s grunge resurgence—piercings are mainstream, midriffs have resurfaced, f... [more]
Tonight in London, at 18.30 GMT: artist Dora Budor gives a lecture on "digital vampires, a-historicity of the perfect CGI image, use of special effects in film in relation to their fictionalized histories and the labor of the undead, the wet body of film and its viral behavior, alien seduction, DNA splicing of the cinematic body."

Zakir Hussain’s latest works at Gallery SKE in Bangalore is a wonderful presentation of works to understand that originality can only be claimed as an unclaimed, seen as the other in the final omnipresent grand narrative of itself. The claim to originality that his works make in the beginning is by having a title ‘no title’. This is very interesting as the self proclamation of having no title negates the presence of the trace of the past. If there is any coincide... [more]

Crossing Lines, an exhibition featuring recent works by Adel Gorgy, Robert C. Morgan and Yun-Woo Choi at Able Fine Art NY Gallery, offers a fascinating glimpse at how three accomplished artists approach the challenging tasks of creating something new, pushing boundaries, and incorporating layers of meaning into singular works of art.

Can graphic design ever truly be considered as a fine art form? Ren Adams has taken on that question by exploring the combination of printmaking and digital media into a collection of surreal two-dimensional images called “Alchemy of Image/The Language of Information Space.” These graphic pieces are striking aesthetically, yet leave something to be desired after initial observation.
Adams blends an interest in history, science, technology, art, and basically everything about the... [more]
