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]

by
10/20/14 Posted 10/20/14

Banksy is trending this morning as a fake article emerged with news of his arrest in Watford, Hertfordshire, by the London Metropolitan Police. Reports and images from fake news website National Report stated that Banksy's real identity had been revealed as Paul Horner, a 35-year-old male from Liverpool. His identity had apparently been confirmed by his PR, Jo Brooks. The arrest of the ubiquitously famous graffiti artist—who has remained anonymous for his entire career—was attribut... [more]

Your Favorite Disney Villains as World Leaders  
by
4/5/14 Posted 4/5/14

Saint Hoax is at it again, this time serving us world leaders as Disney villains. The Middle-Eastern artist (he hasn’t revealed his real name or where he lives) caught our attention when he turned world leaders into drag queens (now available as sweatshirts) and then into blow-up sex dolls. He rewrites history through visual lies, calling the work “POPlitical." In this latest iteration exploring the performativity of global politics, Saint Hoax imagines Sarah Palin as Cruella de Vil,...

The exhibition is good, and congrats to the artist. A good friend of mine told me a rather disturbing story recently. He had been working with scott for years, and scott has helped him a great deal. Recently scott has not been able to sell as much art to pay his bills and has resorted to throwing events to sustain his gallery. Scott openly admits his failure, in his bathroom there is a painting that says 'BLACKBALL' which he says he got an employee to make in order to remind him how his ex-wife ha... [more]

By Margaret Meehan http://glasstire.com/2011/01/23/flotsam-and-feedbackfeedbacklooploop-at-500x/ On a cold and (believe it or not) snowy day in Dallas, Texas I found myself at the entrance of 500X Gallery on the last day of Flotsam, an exhibition of work by Christine Bisetto and Kerry Pacillio. I was familiar with Bisetto’s work and was making it a point to see the show despite the growing cold and my 3-hour drive back to Austin. The show is down now so I’m glad I did get to see... [more]

Sapporo, Japan)  This work is what is lost in the earthquake two years ago. I pray for the souls that draw. Although computer-based drawing, heart is being transmitted and it will not change any of the art so far. I'm sure the future is towards digital art. Now is the beginning of the art and with the evolution of the computer digital art i... [more]

by
Jonathan Monaghan at Curator's Office January 14th, 2012 - February 18th, 2012
Posted 1/23/12

By John Anderson • January 20, 2012 A piece of advice before you step into Curator’s Office to watch Jonathan Monaghan’s new work of digitally animated video art: Suspend your ninja logic. Fans of Mortal Kombat will remember Sub-Zero as a silent masked combatant who fires ice projectiles from his hands, but in Monaghan’s video, “Sacrifice of the Mushroom Kings,” the ninja assassin has all the gusto of a bored kid at scout camp, seated in the gun turret of a Sherman tank, scrolling through his sm...

Posted 6/21/10

The opening night began before I even entered the Moderna Building, outside a large crowd of people from the students to the dressed to impress mingling on the lower platform and crowding on the stairs -  some venturing through the very imposing doors (Doors of education and knowledge, their stature indicating that something special is about to be revealed, double doors so heavy I nearly disjoint my arm to get through), and alongside the obvious audio system that is set out along the front of the bu...
