On the evening of August 13th Guilmi seemed to be waking up. A cacophony of voices could be heard as townspeople and visitors gathered in a small piazza to listen to stories beingread aloud from inside a van. Later this van was opened up to reveal photographs lining the inside of the car: forming a small gallery. This gallery is in fact the perfect size for this town of no more than 200 people. The exhibition is called Avanzi, or leftovers. It is the result of about three we... [more]
ArtSlant's weekly podcast, Working (it) Out with Gillian Dykeman is now available on iTunes. Listen to new and old podcasts from the first season for free!
Working (it) Out is all about that age-old question: Does art require an audience? Gillian asks contemporary artists from around the world what their thoughts are on the relationship between artist and audience and how their work relies on or denies the audience.
You can check out the podcast on soundcloud, iTunes or on ArtSlant. [more]

Art or Not? Summer is properly upon us: the art world populus has migrated from urban cultural epicentres to scattered exotic outposts—but this time, the art is following them. Hoping to posit itself as one of those is Marbella, freshly added to the fair circuit, with its inaugural edition of Art Marbella. Will it change the attitudes of the cultural elite towards this coastal luxury hotspot, currently known as a magnet for Brits with bad taste? We've been on the prowl to see what's on off... [more]

Art or Not? You thought you had the art world sussed, but every once in a while it chucks you a curve ball. In short, sometimes art can seem like a joke. What if we strip away the nonsense jargon—is the artwork still an artwork? What if we attribute those words to a different image—does that make it more legit? Every week, we ask our readers to play a game of guess who, and enjoy moment of irreverance in an oh-so-serious art world...
This week: which pile of goo was made by an art... [more]

It’s late on a Friday and the Studio Door Gallery on 30th is still going strong for the opening of its national Comicon-inspired show, “Strip: Caricature, Satire and the Funnies.” The caricature artist is working on a couple who looks thrilled to be getting mildly caricaturized and someone is busily adding lines to the communal canvas off in the corner. She is concentrating so hard she barely notices people looking over her shoulder.

Every artist worth their salt has their own distinctive aesthetic, and that proves especially important for graffiti and street art, where artists compete directly in the public space, not only to catch the eye of the passerby but to build an instantly recognizable identity within their community. Graffiti, after all, is all about whose tag is "up" the most in a territory.
Brooklyn-based Maya Hayuk works both in the streets and the studio and her aesthetic is ubiquitous. With its pop ne... [more]

Art or Not? When we're doing our weekly rounds of the world's galleries and musuems, we sometimes find ourselves baffled. The press release and the art work often don't seem to add up. And what about those fleeting encounters with the natural beauty that surrounds us, the perfect poetry of a passing moment?
Every week, we ask our readers to have some fun with us and tell us, what is art, and what is not? This week, it's a foggy question.
A graduate of the Royal College of Art, London,... [more]
