Empty prisons, abandoned shipyards, derelict factories—in the past couple of decades these raw and unpolished places have become very popular as locations for art fairs, biennials, and temporary exhibitions. Often it’s simply because of their atmospheric quality. Or to stress the fact that the art on show really is connected to the outside world and not only functions within the artificial ecosystem of the museum. But it works best if the location’s identity and the exhibition’s content are in synch. With Global Imagi... [more]

From the flash and swagger of Vegas, to the manicured, lamppost-lined Main Street of Disneyland, we are proffered up a regular cultural diet of distorted, exaggerated versions of reality. The hyperreal seeps into even the most mundane crannies of our existence: our newspapers, breakfast cereal, tennis shoes, and coupon-clippings. Everywhere you turn there is something to buy, sniff, gnaw on, or run your finger along the sides of that has that certain smack of the real, that kind of chewy, overripe... [more]

Mark Dion at Oakland Museum of California September 11th, 2010 - March 6th, 2011
Posted 9/20/10

Conceived (by invitation) by Mark Dion and implemented as a collaboration between Dion and the staff of the Oakland Museum of California, The Marvelous Museum stages an interdisciplinary intervention into the Oakland Museum's permanent art, history, and natural sciences collection on both a conceptual and physical level. It’s easy to be skeptical of a museum-sanctioned critique, this one designed specifically to coincide with a large scale effort at re-invention and transformation. How... [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...
