Not much is likely to be written about Arrow Factory’s ‘Collection Highlights’; this is not because it is a bad exhibition or lacks interest. Paradoxically, it is the nature of the venue itself that has propelled it forward as one of Beijing’s few truly ‘alternative’ art sites (as Robin Peckham pointed out in an earlier ArtSlant review) and at the same time, keeps anything beyond a small returning audience at a distance. Others remain aware of Arrow Factory’s activities - and excited by them - b... [more]

At its best, the invocation of the everyday stimulates a kind of miasmic and pervasive timelessness: vast empty skies, winds and wolves howling and the cruel loneliness of existence and so on and so forth. At its most trite, the quotidian as a subject in art (from slice-of-lifers to unrelenting activists)  begs for sanctimonious genuflection. Pathos-inducing relics (crinkled bus transfers, a single baby’s sock) ease to the weepy ponderance of personal history. A powerful facult... [more]

A Mind Meld is a Terrible Thing to Waste is not inspired by the United Negro College Fund's famous advertising slogan "A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste," (1972) which has entered the United States' lexicon, but a riff off a quote from an interview with the Grateful Dead last month in which drummer Mickey Hart and Bob Weir referred to their collaboration and 2009 tour. Less of a collaboration than a summer show in February, Jack Hanley's exhibition pulls together about a third of the gallery... [more]

Desertshore. Everything turns to sand - dry and parched. Writer/curator Jan Tumlir curated “Desertshore” at Cal State Los Angeles’ Luckman Gallery with Nico’s 1970 album in mind. All 15 of the artists featured in the show are Los Angele-based artists and it shows. It really makes sense; we live in a city built on top of a desert, kept alive by constant rebirth. The works deal with urban and desert landscapes, destruction, decay and rebuilding. Parts of the exhibition summon thoughts of Mad Max,... [more]
