In terms of this exhibition's parameters, the subtitle says it all. However, when it comes to the quality of the work on view, that's another story entirely. I should probably disclose upfront that I have never studied the French language and haven't had much prior familiarity with the work of contemporary French artists. However if this mish-mash of a selection is representative, it doesn't seem that I have been missing a whole lot. To be sure, there are some excellent standouts – most notably... [more]

This themed exhibition is dedicated to the artistic transfer of photographically produced images in the medium of printmaking. The beginnings of this trend lie in the 1960s and the era of Pop Art. The silkscreen print was one of the first printmaking media to use photographic templates. This was quickly followed by offset lithographic printing, which saw another 'trivial' print medium being used to create artistic reproductions. Parallel to this, traditional printing processes such as etching, photogra... [more]

The works on show at the Camden Arts Centre are the latest in their series of artist-selected shows at the North London gallery. Somewhere between a curatorial exercise and art-by-proxy, these shows have revealed both the personal and vicarious aspects of artist curation/selection. The work selected by Simon Starling comprises works by 30 artists and designers, revisiting the history of the Camden Art Centres programmes over the last 50 years. By-and-large the works occupy the positio... [more]

I could take my mom to “Human Rites”, the current show at the Bass Museum.  My mom, not having much of a background or knowledge of contemporary art, still appreciates art and appreciates history.  At "Human Rites", one can look at works from times past, side by side to their newer counterparts, initiating a launching point for discussion about art. “Human Rites” at the Bass Museum is co-curated by Executive Director and Chief Curator, Silvia Karman Cubiñá and Adjunct Curator Steven...

In an era where our relationship with books seems to be drifting away, where most of reading has become mechanistic and a means of acquiring information and conditioned by the quickness of the ever-changing technology, the Art of the Artist Book takes us on an other-worldly journey to a place where the book is treated as a precious and aesthetic focal point for sharing intimate feelings, inspiration, dreams, social commentary and memory. The artwork in this exhibit is excitingly diverse in terms... [more]

Christian Boltanski at Grand Palais January 13th, 2010 - February 21st, 2010
Posted 1/18/10

      As we stepped inside the Grand Palais last night, attacked by the deafening and unpredictable noises of what could have been an industrial site in full swing, or the engine room of an old train, James announced, “we are all off to Auschwitz.” And each step we took into the heart of Christian Boltanski’s newly installed edition of the Monumenta series, was like a step further down the ladder into the pit of Dante’s hell.I am a big Boltanski fan, in fact, I would even go so far as to say I am a follower of his work. I have been touched by it, challenged by it, overwhelmed by it, and have e... [more]

Posted 3/28/09

      Haunch of Venison’s first show at Burlington Gardens is a spectacular one—not only for the chance to check out the gallery’s new digs—but for the chance to experience contemporary art through an anthropological eye. It is a group show of epic proportions, featuring eleven themed rooms and works in almost every nook and cranny of the building—in the entrance hall, on the landing and even hanging from the ceiling above the double staircase.     It is in the tradition of collectors l...

Christian Boltanski at La Maison Rouge September 14th, 2008 - October 5th, 2008
Posted 9/28/08

  Christian Boltanski and La Maison Rouge have created another breathtaking installation as part of the current Festival d'Automne in Paris. Les Archives du Coeur continues all of Boltanski's familiar preoccupations with archiving, memory, history and how photography is and is not adequate to the communication of the relations between them. As always, the artistic world of Christian Boltanski is imagined in a conversation between light and dark, the moving and still image, sound and silence, all o... [more]
