Frank Wisdom: An Interview with Joanne Greenbaum  
by
12/14/14

Joanne Greenbaum is not one of those theoretical types—she is frank, funny, and bleeds New York in everything she does. Over the past couple decades this abstract painter has established herself for covering canvases in bright line work with magic marker, acrylic and oil. Her trademark has been treating the white canvas as map, filled with patterns that resemble city grids. It’s as if Broadway Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian were painted freehand and with more layered graphic composi... [more]

The Unsung Art Star: A Phone Call with Frank Bowling  
by
11/11/14

Nov. 2014: Frank Bowling is a Guyana-born, London-based abstract painter who was one of the first black artists to have a solo show in America. Even still, he’s kind of an overlooked art star. His colleagues at the Royal Academy of Art include David Hockney, and Lucian Freud was his mentor. Bowling, who is known for dreamy abstract expressionist paintings, was championed by Clement Greenberg alongside artists like Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Barnett Newmann. Bowling has a slic... [more]

Meschac Gaba at KunstHall - Deutsche Bank September 20th - November 16th
Posted 10/30/14

When the world thinks of Africa at the moment, the conversation seems to stop on the deadly West African virus, Ebola. For a less alarmist and fear-stoked impression of a massive continent, Meschac Gaba’s Museum of Contemporary African Art (1997-2002), on view at Berlin’s Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle until November 16, is currently offering insights through the eyes of one money-minded artist from Benin. Funny coincidence this show is hosted by a Deutsche Bank-sponsored gallery, as German... [more]

The Language of Power: A Hotel Lobby Conversation with Rashaad Newsome  
by
10/21/14

Graz, Austria, Sept. 2014: Rashaad Newsome’s heart pulses to the beat of hip hop. But how can one replace chamber music with old school black vernacular? New York-based Newsome, who is originally from New Orleans, travels the world finding the attitude-drenched insider lingo of each city, weaving it into his compositions for an unforgettable performance piece called Shade Compositions. Newsome came into the spotlight in 2010 in collaboration with Alexander Wang at MoMA PS1 and is known f... [more]

by
9/29/11

Berlin, Sept. 2011 - For an industry whose only products have no objective use, function or value, the art-world takes itself pretty seriously. Thankfully Nadja Sayej, the creator and headliner of ArtStars* is here to sniff out bullshit, puncture pretension, deflate egos and delight lovers of lively criticism. ArtStars* is a vlog in the tradition of lost Gonzo-journalist public-access treasures such as Paul H-O and Walter Robinson in the Manhattan-based 1990s "GalleryBeat" public-access show.  Sayej pops up...
