Posted 6/15/14

Much more interesting than the description of the 14 Rooms performance series, which will take place as part of Art Basel and is organized by star-curators Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist, is its call out for participants/performers to take part in it: “If you have an identical twin, use the opportunity to be part of Damien Hirst’s work. War veterans are sought after for part of Santiago Sierra’s performance, and anyone who speaks colloquial British-English and is similar in appear... [more]

Occasionally we are given a glimpse into the artist as mere mortal.  The same men and women who produce art that is sold for millions at auction and are discussed and dissected for hours by scholars and the common man do, indeed, walk among us; and “From Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler” is proof.   The most admired and glorified modern and contemporary artists are also jewelers.  Who knew?  And this small, yet impressive, exhibition is a precious reminder that art need not take on static ob...

Does Quiet Meditation like roller coaster rides that make her dizzy? When a doleful morn meets a discomfiting confrontation, do they look each other in the eye? Does dollops of cathartic effect go with a tinge of alienation? Quaint Wit wishes to be introduced to the family of Graceful Rhythm – Is Graceful rhythm ready for the next “beat”? When metaphysical talks to material simplicity, is all lost in translation? Who will believe that violence and empathy had the perfect summer romance? There's something about Yoko Ono's w... [more]

There are many that argue that art is elitist; a medium enjoyed only by those specifically educated to decipher and appreciate it, or sufficiently “cultured” to willingly choose paintings and sculpture over pursuits with more mass-appeal.  These sceptics are right in that whilst art is available to everyone, not everyone is interested, and by default this makes art the premise of the few rather than the many.  On the other hand, being able to wander around the Royal Academy on a Sunday afternoo...

Also addressing the resonances and dissonances between the personal and the global, Yoko Ono presents “Das Gift”. Grounded in her long history of conceptual work, the exhibition encourages viewers to interact with the art. Violence is the theme of the show, and the artist asks those who visit to bring something of their own personal experience of violence, a picture or a text, that will be placed on the gallery wall. Visitors’ smiles will also be visible in a streaming video, on view during the exhi... [more]

Curator Daniel Birnbaum chose a clever theme in this year’s curated biennale exhibition. It has almost endless scope and he did a fairly good job of making sure that the artists fit the topic – even if that did sometimes mean equating “making installations” with “making worlds”. The art was generally of high quality, interactive, thought provoking and yes, even fun.The first and most entrancing work was Lydia Pape’s “Ttéia I, C. 2002” – a black void shot through with glinting gol...

Posted 12/19/08

Performance art emerging in the 1960s and 70s was infused with ideas of social emancipation and fundamentally influenced by women artists interested in feminism. Performance art explored the intersection of art and life, of private and public. It offered an ideal medium for examining, deconstructing or reinventing (female) identity moving beyond attributions of femininity in mainstream culture. Moreover, as a new art form, occurring outside the confines of the traditional art space, performan... [more]

Just down the street from its original location at 14th and Guerrero, the Kiki Gallery--by all accounts a tiny, interdisciplinary space--has been resurrected by artist Colter Jacobsen and writer Kevin Killian at Ratio 3. Comprised almost entirely of works shown at Kiki, during its short yet fervent 18 month run, the exhibit chronicles Kiki owner, Rick Jacobsen’s vision and devotion to the arts in San Francisco. Opened in 1993, Kiki played host to a number of interestingly themed shows (t... [more]

Low Life Slow Life, an exhibit curated by Paul McCarthy at the CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Arts is billed as showcasing “a wide range of artists and artworks related to memories from McCarthy’s career.” In this sense, the result is very true to its word. Vitrines filled with ephemera from McCarthy’s own collection are scattered throughout the Wattis’s downstairs gallery. Included are record albums by Karlheinz Stockhausen, coffee-table size books on Happeni... [more]
