20131022123637-1 Prix Marcel Duchamp: Favourites and Outsiders   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

As a corollary to FIAC the Prix Marcel Duchamp has had some pretty impressive winners in its time and is, as with all of these types of prizes, a great way for an artist to get some recognition, funding and actual cash. Not as old as the Swiss Art Awards, as prestigious as a Gold or Silver Lion, or as lucrative as some of the big private awards, it is still sufficient to spur on the career of any artist, not least in that it comes with a well funded exhibition at the Pompidou, and allows you to jo...

As one of the more visible providers of a critique of the centre/periphery model of cultural development in the early 2000’s, a new exhibition by curator Hou Hanru is highly anticipated. ZiZhiQu: Autonomous Regions at the Times Museum in Guangzhou can perhaps be seen to develop this model as it applies to the cultural self-formation of individuals and groups, placing that development in contrast to a globalised institutionalisation of culture. Autonomy, then, moves across all scales in its realisat... [more]

On the face of it, this exhibition, Néon. Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue? is just plain fun. With the Maison Rouge all lit up in different colored neon lights, both industrially produced and hand-crafted  tubes bringing the walls to life, inviting us to walk into spaces saturated in impossible colors. A visit to Néon is ostensibly a joyful, light way to spend an afternoon. Then as we quickly realize, neon has more to it than meets the eye. Neon lights may look pretty, but they are... [more]

Paris-based artist, Claire Fontaine, took her name from a popular brand of school notebooks and declared her self a “readymade artist” in 2004. This exhibition incorporates older works, including sculptures, light pieces, videos, text works as well as new interventions by Fontaine. In addition, there is a screening area showing films and videos that have influenced Fontaine’s work.  Managed by her “assistants,” Fontaine’s practice is deeply imbedded in collaborative modes of working an...

With daily warnings of environmental disasters on top of sleazy Wall Street frauds, it appears everyone’s on hyper-alert today waiting for the next shocker. Truth is, most people will just tune out and get on with it, vente Starbucks in hand.  Though if you live in steamy struggling South Florida you’ll probably crank up the A/C and hit those Craigslist Classifieds again.   Or bag the whole thing and head for the beach.Here’s a better idea. Take off your sunglasses and give your brain cells a... [more]

Similar to Abstract Derive at Ludlow 38, Vernacular of Violence is a group show that uses one artist’s work as a provocation. In this case, it is conversations with the artist Lisa Kirk and her work, whose interdisciplinary practice investigates the aestheticization of formerly radical political signifiers.  For Vernacular of Violence, violence in our everyday lives – as it is embedded in the cultural fabric around us – becomes the source material to investigate mutability in the cont...

      One thing after another: an exhibition, an art fair, a glass of good wine, an episode from an American TV series. But each item on the list conjures up what follows: the next exhibition (will it be as good, or better?), the next art fair (who'll be there this time?), the next glass of wine (the last?), and the next episode (bring on the one after!). Each of these follow-ups has its own inner logic: each new element either replaces the previous one (the TV series), adds to it (the wine)... [more]

With an intriguing title like Occupancy by More Than 6'682'685'387 Persons is Dangerous and Unlawful - Part One, Pierre Bismuth's show at Cosmic Galerie promises some unexpected twists. The whole show, in fact, is a twist: each work in the show is created as a collaboration between Bismuth and another artist on the theme of Bismuth's own work, but beyond the notion of collaboration, the notion of sabotage and appropriation enters the equation, as each work challenges the notion of authorship and...

  I must admit that I did not make it to the "Passengers" exhibit that ran at CCA's Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art from September of last year through this August. However, from its press description, it seems that the new incarnation of the show, "The Exhibition Formerly Known as Passengers," implements the same format and its is premise not much different from its predecessor. The show includes the work of 12 artists, 11 of which are exhibited in a group show, which spans the perime...

The United States of America is both a nation and an idea. Since its inception, the nation has built itself around contradictory narratives such as freedom and imperialism, justice and oppression, opportunity and classism, or creativity and cultural hegemony to name a few. Two international curators working in the U.S., Jan Van Woensel and Hou Hanru, examine the icon of the United States and apply their unique perspectives in concurrent exhibitions within the country in question.Belgian curator Jan Va...

Alluding to both Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1969 protest song and Sonic Youth's dark 1985 album, the group exhibit Bad Moon Rising continues the sentiment that something is rotten in the USA. The violent drawings of murderer George Hennard, who was responsible for the 1991 Luby's shooting massacre, jostle uneasily next to Ben Vautier's tongue-in-cheek A Fluxus Suicide Kit. Meanwhile, Rage Against the Machine's poison-pen commentary on the 2000 presidential race seems almost diminutive against... [more]
