The Cossacks are an East Slavic ethnic group who have long retained independence from the Russian territorial zone. They exist in Crimea, Ukraine, South Caucasus, and even China. Brutally persecuted in Soviet Russia, Cossacks have now reassumed their legitimacy in the Russian national identity, building on their previous historical role as paid militia for the Russian Empire. A 2005 law reinstated this role under Putin and it has been ascertained that Cossack paramilitary activities in East Ukraine and Crimea constitute a form o... [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...

There is standing tradition of innovative gallerists choosing to site exhibition spaces in their homes, a tactic embraced so enthusiastically in Miami in fact as to have generated the term “Miami model” with the help of celebrated individuals like Sarah Gavlak among others. In this light the inaugural exhibition of The Jacqueline Falcone Bed and Breakfast entitled Marriage, Blood and Adaptation has a value added approach. In addition to installing works in the proprietor’s bedroom/gallery, Falcone expands... [more]

In keeping with the duality set up by its title, “A Strange Affinity to the Beautiful and the Dreadful” explores the antipodal forces of dark and light, death and life, good and evil that shape our imagination, and, the show suggests, our reality. Nimbly curated by Maureen Sullivan, the exhibition boasts an extensive roster of contemporary heavy-hitters – including Marilyn Manson, Ugo Rondinone, Sue De Beer, Alexa Garrity, and Artslant’s own Trong G. Nguyen – and posits as its framework the age-... [more]

The United States of America is both a nation and an idea. Since its inception, the nation has built itself around contradictory narratives such as freedom and imperialism, justice and oppression, opportunity and classism, or creativity and cultural hegemony to name a few. Two international curators working in the U.S., Jan Van Woensel and Hou Hanru, examine the icon of the United States and apply their unique perspectives in concurrent exhibitions within the country in question.Belgian curator Jan Va...

Alluding to both Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1969 protest song and Sonic Youth's dark 1985 album, the group exhibit Bad Moon Rising continues the sentiment that something is rotten in the USA. The violent drawings of murderer George Hennard, who was responsible for the 1991 Luby's shooting massacre, jostle uneasily next to Ben Vautier's tongue-in-cheek A Fluxus Suicide Kit. Meanwhile, Rage Against the Machine's poison-pen commentary on the 2000 presidential race seems almost diminutive against... [more]
