Art or Not?

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]

Art or Not? Love it or hate it, the PR machine that drives contemporary art world sometimes seems to take the piss. Is this endemic of laziness, or a stroke of genius? Can spin turn the humble hoover into a work of art? Someone thinks so, because they paid a whopping $11,801,000 for one of the vacuum cleaner artworks described below... #1 In 1990 the artist staged a series of spontaneous street interventions organized in tandem across the U.S. Prefiguring the pop-up art display, the apparently desultory rep...

Posted 2/22/15 by BECKY BATCHA "So, yes, we've come a long way from those tablets that Moses brought down from the mount. The show came about when curator Susan Isaacs, who teaches at Towson University, "started seeing a trend and realizing that a lot of artists were dealing with spiritual texts," said Gershman executive director Maxine Gaiber. The two worked together to bring the works to Philly." Read more at [more]

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.

Forgotten time capsule found in Boston lion sculpture  
9/25/14 Posted 9/25/14

via Wikimedia Commons When copper statues of a gold lion and silver unicorn were installed above Boston's Old State House in 1901, the majestic creatures weren’t the only objects left for posterity. Inside the lion’s head was a sealed copper box filled with “things that will prove interesting when the box is opened many years hence,” wrote The Boston Globe at the time. The future is now. Earlier this month the lion and unicorn sculptures—emblems representing the building’s coloni... [more]

Ryan Reggiani at Hap Gallery March 6th, 2014 - March 29th, 2014
Posted 3/26/14

New York City-based artist Ryan Reggiani fills the gallery with an accomplished selection of works across a diverse range of media. The elegant sculpture "Untitled (Hanging)" employs straight and curved steel rods in immaculate counterposition. There is a sense of whimsy in another set of wall sculptures comprised of light bulbs and electrical cords within a metal frame. In a dramatic suite of standing concrete sculptures, the artist has stacked hollow forms around a central axis of metal rods, deco... [more]

It Was For the Children Photo of Simon Metke, 33, by Jana G. Pruden via Edmonton Journal Edmonton resident and small time weed dealer Simon Metke had no idea he was in possession of a stolen ancient Persian artifact valued at $1.2 million, so just chill out. Canadian officials raided Metke’s apartment late last month, and (according to the Edmonton Journal) Metke was just sort of like, woah, “What the heck is going on?” “There’s like 20 RCMP officers flooding my place, the sun...

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]
