Empty prisons, abandoned shipyards, derelict factories—in the past couple of decades these raw and unpolished places have become very popular as locations for art fairs, biennials, and temporary exhibitions. Often it’s simply because of their atmospheric quality. Or to stress the fact that the art on show really is connected to the outside world and not only functions within the artificial ecosystem of the museum. But it works best if the location’s identity and the exhibition’s content are in synch. With Global Imagi... [more]

WORDS: A USER'S MANUAL begins with the word, keeping the implicit promise in its name.  Simply put, the driving concept at the core of this ambitiously curated show is this: words, as we know them, denote specific reality, whereas ‘art’ is essentially devoid of any such intrinsic meaning and is appreciated in terms of individual inference and interpretation. To illustrate this point further let us consider the word ‘Cat.’ When I say the word ‘Cat’ I refer to the furry purring creature that dr... [more]

“The Capital of Accumulation” is a smart, sophisticated show by Raqs Media Collective, on view this month at Project 88. Taking its cue from the celebrated Marxist philosopher Rosa Luxemburg, the show centers around her written work,  "The Accumulation of Capital."  The main event of the show is a video entitled "The Capital of Accumulation," which retraces the life of the fictional character Luxme Sorabgur (a reordering of the letters in Rosa Luxemburg’s name) and her journey throug...

Posted 8/9/10

What is so unreal about "This is Unreal" the newest exhibition up at Experimenter? The show features three artists and an artist group, Yamini Nayar, Susanta Mondal, and Raqs Media Collective, whose work is apparently united by the common if vague desire to scratch the surface of reality as a ‘given.’ Probing the possibilities of alternate realities unearths multiple layers of the same site, and thereby unites through approach works that are otherwise divided by the use of divergent ex...
