Art or Not?  
7/31/15 Posted 7/31/15

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?  
7/24/15 Posted 7/24/15

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]

Comicon North Article by Rebecca Romani 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. ... [more]

Did Starbucks Really Rip Off Maya Hayuk's Artwork?  
7/13/15 Posted 7/13/15

Image via Starbucks 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...

Art or Not?  
7/3/15 Posted 7/3/15

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. #1 A graduate of the Royal College of Art, London,... [more]

Art or Not? Do you ever walk into a gallery, and feel like you're missing something? Art can sometimes confuse you. But what does make something art, or not? Is it context, words, or the audience, who says what flies in the gallery? Every week, we ask our readers to stop taking the art world so seriously for a little minute and try and play a game of spot the difference. This week: which of the unusual scenes below is documents a performance exhibited at a Welsh art institute? #1 Staged in the glo... [more]

Art or Not?  
6/3/15 Posted 6/3/15

Art or Not? Ever stepped into a gallery or institute and thought to yourself, you cannot be serious? Without the "textual bikini" of art PR, does the naked artwork have any shape or is the joke on us? Every Friday for a laugh, we challenge you to figure out which image with its description has been forged by the ArtSlant team. This week: One of the below is a the result of a wear and tear of a gallery's floor, while the other is very realistic art work exhibited in a gallery space. Can you tel... [more]

Dedicated to Mary Ellen Mark: The Compassionate Photographer

Tributes have been pouring in upon the announcement of the passing of Mary Ellen Mark (1940–2015), who died at home, aged 75, on Monday after suffering from myelodysplastic syndrome. “She was so young at heart,” portrait photographer Martin Schoeller was quoted in Time as saying. “She was also the most courageous photographer, never taking no for an answer, always trying to achieve her vision at all costs.” Although her work carried across a broad canvas includi...
