Rome, 2010 - The contemporary art gallery Wunderkammern, will be having a show that focuses on the street art of the anonymous French artist Invader. While in Rome, ArtSlant's writer, Jeff Andreoni, had a chance to chat with the artist and ask him a few questions regarding his art, his views and his upcoming show.

I have often seen shows dedicated to Eastern European art that tend to focus too much on the artists’ origins and not enough on the artists themselves or their feelings and sensibilities. It has taken Calvert 22, founded by Nonna Materkova and directed by David Thorp, to host an exhibition that is capable of showing what contemporary Eastern European art is capable of (which is far more than red stars and runway models donning Stalinesque coats). One of the artists, Lily Markiewic... [more]

STATIC, a contemporary urban art duo, are having their first solo show at the Artrepublic gallery in SoHo. STATIC were given free rein to cover the entire two floor space with their artwork and the result is something more like a show within an installation. Every surface of the gallery has been decorated and it really gives you the feel of being in a contemporary urban artist’s studio, in other words, of being in the street. In ancient Greece, the streets were filled with statues... [more]

MOT International, which is located in the gallery-packed Regent’s Studios, continues its ongoing exhibition “dialectic” with the current show. As a one-year experiment, MOT has abandoned the traditional scheduling regime in favour of a new approach. For 2010, there is neither time limit nor any formal structure whatsoever regarding scheduling and organisation. This method of presentation allows for different projects to intersect, overlap or cancel each other out, keeping the show(s) ve... [more]

Posted 5/2/10

          Jannis Kounellis, a pioneer of  Arte Povera, has never made a basement look as elegant as he has today. In Arte Povera, the theatricality of the work is of the utmost importance; any resulting art objects are merely by-products of this performative element. After a career that spans several decades, Kounellis’s work still preserves a certain 'Aliention Effect', engaging the viewer at an almost exclusively theatrical level. Entering the gallery from the ground floor the viewer is immediatly confronted by a giant steel “K... [more]

        This week I had the opportunity to experience two artists, one young and one a bit older. The younger, Jacob Perlmutter, spent 88 days travelling across the United States equipped only with his camera and a backpack full of film. Many photographers have been attracted to the US for its wide-ranging social and physical landscapes. During the Great Depression, Dorothea Lange and Arthur Rothstein both captured the mood and turbulence of the times. Robert Frank, who was Perlmutter’s inspiration... [more]

                The Financial Times often reports on what it thinks are crackerjack strategies for buying art. One such approach recently floated by the august newspaper was to buy work from 200 artists and - hopefully - at least one will skyrocket in value. If you are not wealthy enough however to buy 200 artworks, you can invest in one of the many funds that can do so on your behalf. In order to increase in value the average holding time for an artwork is 30 years. So perhaps you're better off buying a painting if you can't manage to get approved fo... [more]

    Before I did anything in Bogotá, I went to a mall. Going abroad I like to see the things that societies have in common rather than enumerate the differences. The upper classes are a difficult quarry to track in any society (rehab centers being a notable exception to this rule). The underprivileged, on the contrary, are everywhere - there isn't usually a shortage of them. Hence, I wanted to explore the mall. I found that the middle class prowling this shopping establishment (or at the v... [more]

          Jacques Derrida once said in an interview that one of the hardest things to imagine is "yourself seeing the other", and this is just what Elaine Wilson's show has set out to do. According to the press release the show's main theme was the "concept of the female gaze, or how women view themselves within a dominant patriarchal culture". How women view themselves (or are viewed by others) in contemporary society is a recurring theme in art, yet Wilson has taken a refreshing approach... [more]

        Vyner Street is one of the most interesting places in London if you're on the prowl for contemporary art. From afar it appears to be a seedy East London back street that only leads towards the canal; but if you are curious enough to venture down it you will find yourself surrounded by galleries and studios. Nettie Horn is currently having a group exhibition called Sensescapes, which I was fortunate enough to stumble upon while sniffing around Vyner Street. (Benoit Broisa... [more]

        Laureana Toledo's solo show at the Trolley gallery is definitely worth the trip. If not for the artwork, then surely for the free minimalist “YES” posters available at the door (I'm having mine framed). The opening was quite an event to navigate, but after manoeuvring past an irate neighbour and a tipsy gallerist I finally made it inside to see Toledo's work. The first section of her show was an installation of newspaper headlines which she collected from newsagents in Eas... [more]

        In her attempt to navigate subjects to which we have an “emotional response,” Katie Cuddon leaves us with a visible document of her tumultuous treading of the sentimentally intangible. To put it another way, Cuddon’s work takes the inward human turmoil we all feel at times and expresses it outwardly. Her work will require a bit more of the viewer because it comes from deep within, but it is definitely worth the investment.

      Michael Landy’s latest work is a continuation on his theme of destruction. A few years ago he gathered everything he owned, cataloged it and ground it into a fine powder (yes, that was him). Everyone I’ve spoken to has heard of that piece but didn’t know who did it… now you do! When you enter the gallery space of his new work entitled Art Bin, you are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the giant dust bin he has constructed; it takes up the entire space leaving little room to circumambula...

Rego claims that the link between the 50 works on display is one of anticipation, containing an element of suspense. The people illustrated are “on the brink of something.” This is the fourth Whitechapel exhibition in a series sponsored by the British Council, which has an extensive collection of British art.

I was standing next to Andy Warhol, frozen in time beside Nat Finkelstein who was whispering an illuminating monologue into my tingling ear as we sought refuge in Warhol's Factory for more clues about a translucent deluge from our postmodern past. It was a voyage in time comparable to th... [more]
