Entering Fire and Forget. On Violence, the viewer passes through two of the four rotating gates in Daniil Galkin’s installation Tourniquet. Beyond this eerie passage, a provocative text speculates on the impact of technology on modern warfare. Its thesis can be characterized as follows: since modern technology has largely emancipated warriors from a traditional active sense of duty—allowing them to literally fire and forget—does this change in confrontation halt the production and...

Cantor1 A Disconcerting Happiness   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Mircea Cantor at Kunsthaus Zürich August 28th, 2009 - November 8th, 2009
Posted 9/21/09

    At the entrance to the Zurich Kunsthaus, in their temporary exhibition space is a compelling exhibition by Romanian artist, Mircea Cantor, Tracking Happiness. Despite Mircea being a man, everything about the works in Tracking Happiness spoke to me as the art of a woman might: sweeping, organizing the domestic space, protecting children, cooking. The centerpiece of the exhibition, at least, the piece that gives the exhibition its title, fills the intimate space of the gallery with a video in... [more]

Editor's Note: In honor of the opening of ArtSlant Toronto, we dug through our archives of Toronto reviews from the past few years. We're featuring the following review from David Yu, for its particular celebration of the Toronto scene, which remains cutting edge and experimental.   I’ve been away from the Toronto art scene for a number of years and was looking forward to revisiting the city that served as backdrop to the cultivation of my love for contemporary art. What I miss most about the T... [more]

I attended La Force de l'Art 02 on the opening weekend and expected long lines outside the Grand Palais.  Though the exhibit was in its final weekend (later extended) the line for TAG--the graffiti collection of Gallizia--stretched out past the grand entrance and Andy next door was reeling in hundreds.  La Force de l'Art?  Nobody.  Not a single person waiting to see the triennial of French contemporary art.  ORLAN was signing books that day and looked a little forlorn at her table, waitin...
