Conceptual artists illuminate the obvious by withholding meaning. They find the menace that lurks in the everyday utterance of people who keep things from each other. A show at Jocelyn Wolff Gallery in Paris is devoted to Ján Mančuška, the Bratislvan artist who died in June, at 39, from complications of a rare blood disease. Rather than the scheduled show of his works, the gallery decided to pay homage to him through the works of others.  In his creations, Mančuška played with conceptions of narrative, of o... [more]

The Austrian Cultural Forum has been consistently staging politically oriented exhibitions for a few years now, surrounding pertinent historical events and current conundrums.  NineteenEightyFour follows suit with a collection of works that consider surveillance methods and structures of control. This topic is treated in a very liberal and often puzzling way, though the quality of most of the works is generally high. Referring to George Orwell’s famous book 1984, the exhibition captur...

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.
