Artist. Entrepreneur. Potter. Bureaucrat. Singer. Arts Administrator. Host. Urban Planner. Collector. The list could go on and on, but the take away from all these labels might be that Theaster Gates is hard to pinpoint or define. Because his practice combines so many disparate disciplines and mediums, it's counter productive to try and categorize the work he does, and the work he makes. Up until now, that hasn’t been too much of an issue—he’s fit comfortably in the trending, self-ref... [more]

This twenty-six artist-deep group show that just opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is an interesting re-examination of work by renowned artists such as Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Robert Rauschenberg and Antoni Tàpies, among others. Re-framed and linked together based on the work’s general responsiveness to war, specifically World War II and the Cold War, all these square pegs are smartly made to fit in round holes despite their typical standing as loners, exceptions, outcasts and icon...

Chicago has a complicated relationship with public art. Anish Kapoor’s beloved Cloud Gate aside, many of the City’s outdoor works have been met with contempt or irreverence by critics and the public alike. Tony Tasset’s Eye fascinated some, but perplexed most; Seward Johnson’s Forever Marilyn sculpture was denounced as “kitsch” and was repeatedly vandalized — once with streaks of red paint surely meant to evoke menstrual blood — until it was taken down in May; and even works that are now symbols of the art establishment, such as Chicag...

Joseph Cornell (1903-1972) was an American Surrealist, well-known for his imaginative boxes, sculptural environments with interior assemblages that may include birds, shells, and collaged or appropriated images along with other ephemera. Large holdings of these are owned by the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), and the boxes mark an important halfway point between modern aesthetics, like collage and found object sculpture, and more contemporary concepts. In “Pa... [more]

In an effort to harness one of the few brand-name cultural products of Seattle to draw tourists, the Seattle Art Museum is putting on a show called Kurt (opening May 13) thematically centered around Kurt Cobain. Preceding the exhibition by two months is Gretchen Bennett’s video I Don't Blame You , 2009, which either is about fame or Kurt Cobain and uses the Cat Power song of the same title (which either is or is not about Kurt Cobain) as a point of departure. Featuring Bennett singing Cat Power... [more]
