Among the 103 participants in this year’s Whitney Biennial, the handful that have elicited the most speculation and skepticism are those known for producing not art objects but texts. In addition to publishing-oriented collectives, words take on a visual function in the poetry of Susan Howe, they form the structure of many of David Diao’s paintings and Gary Indiana’s sculptures. Artspace warned us to “Get ready to do some reading.” Carol Vogel, in her New York Times pre... [more]

ArtSlant editors Natalie Hegert, Joel Kuennen, and Charlie Schultz met up at Agra, an Indian restaurant on Lexington Avenue, to discuss the opening of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, its surprises, best in show, and disappointments. They touch on trends and themes of scale, archives, lists, dongs, and objectness—parsing the line between artwork and artifact. Charlie Schultz: I guess I’ll start by saying I found this year’s iteration of the [Whitney] Biennial to be far less crowded than in... [more]

That day, the Yellow Emperor showed the poet his palace. They left behind, in long succession, the first terraces on the west which descend, like the steps of an almost measureless amphitheater, to a paradise or garden whose metal mirrors and intricate juniper hedges already prefigured the labyrinth. They lost themselves in it, gaily at first, as if condescending to play a game, but afterwards not without misgiving, for its straight avenues were subject to a curvature, ever so slight, but con...

If this show had a motion it would be centripetal, and the energy generator would be the lithesome red-headed vixen Cameron Parsons (1922-1995), poet, mystic, actress, artist, whose ink drawings are like observations of other dimensions. Curators Amanda Friedman and Taylor Trabulus picked up on the exploratory impulse in Cameron’s practice and looked for connections in the contemporary landscape. The ten artists they chose may not be oriented to the same occult-compass that guided Cameron, but each... [more]

While the United States continues to debate how art should be publicly funded, or as so often the case is, not funded or de-funded, France has no such confusion.  “Spatial City: An Architecture of Idealism” at the Hyde Park Art Center (HPAC) draws on the FRAC Collections, FRAC standing for French Regional Contemporary Art Collections, which are essentially contemporary art collections owned and purchased by certain regions of France.  The focus here is on artists working in France but also...

Postcolonial theory is not for the weak of heart. Indeed, one of my grad school professors told me his Africanists made a habit of expressly avoiding it in their exams, choosing to focus on “less contentious” topics. Its detractors have argued that postcolonial theory is only useful in discussions of art and literature, and accordingly, one place it often rears its misunderstood head is in art exhibitions – generally with varying degrees of insight and confusion. “In-between Things”, a small...

In his book "Between the Furniture and the Building," Jimmie Durham describes himself as a ’theoretical biologist’, a person who depicts the behaviors and norms of cohabitation in various communities. But as an artist and writer he looks skeptically at the norms of language and so he developes besides his essayistic and literary texts a visual language in sculptures, assemblages and drawings. There he speaks about cultural behaviors as well as his own position towards the rules of society... [more]

Eight artistic statements protesting intolerable conditions, ranging from the "dead" classroom by the extraordinary Polish artist Tadeusz Kantor to Jimmie Durham's unmasking of America’s founding myth in "Building a Nation", to Regina José Galindo’s opening performance: her own gold teeth become the metaphor not only for the exploitation of Latin America, but also call forth associations of the brutality of the "Third Reich". The works take on today’s global reality – not by reflecting or reproducing... [more]

The state of the world upsets the artistic production, and even the way we interpret works of art. After years of glitter and cynicism, brutality and violence surround us while we wait and hope for a humanist bright spell. The show won't feature any image of armed conflicts, of social or economic crises, no idea for a social redemption. It will only try to underline how the global situation reflects on the artists (or on the artworks). A partial and biased collective show in which very... [more]

 This is conceptual art – if indeed that is what it is – at its best. The exhibition surveys Durham’s last fifteen years, that is, since he moved to Europe in 1994. There are a variety of sculptures, paintings, installations, videos, performances and photographs, all of which cohere around the stone. Real stones are thrown, on display, used in performance pieces (for example as a passenger in a hand crafted boat), they are carved, imbued with metaphoric and symbolic meaning, even given personalit...

        Galerie Nordenhake is pleased to present ‘Dog Star Man', a group exhibition titled after Stan Brakhage's most ambitious experimental film produced in the early 60's. Often defined as a metaphor for the unity of creation, the film expresses a mythic conception of the struggle and fall of Man and its relationship with the Cosmos. Its images include both the microscopic and telescopic, and range from solar explosions to brief glimpses of the beloved's body. In a similar way, this exhibition brings... [more]
