The language of visual information in the digital age has a surprising connection to water: video streams, .wav files, image pools, torrents. All this leads up to the biggest metaphoric aquatic body yet: what the MoMA Department of Photography calls the “Ocean of Images.” Ocean of Images marks the 30th anniversary of MoMA’s New Photography series. It also signals a few changes to the show. Previously an annual event featuring the work of a handful of artists, in its new guise the sho... [more]

Charlotte Cotton’s book Photography Is Magic is one of the first collections of photography by a major publisher (Aperture) to acknowledge and explore the new generation of idea-driven image-makers. The publication, which that takes into account work that has emerged within the past decade, questions the role of photography in the post-internet environment, featuring artists that investigate and subvert its tools and techniques, and expand it into interdisciplinary realms and practices. These... [more]

The basic structure of society is not amenable to surrealist states. Louis Aragon’s vision-soaked stroll through the passage de l’opera in his preeminently surrealist novel Paris Peasant reads like foggy brainspace turned inside out and made into poetry, coloring reality itself with its instability. Umbrellas dance, a lock of flaxen hair—seen only in a flash—mercilessly seduces. Instability is the reality of The Stand In (Or A Glass of Milk) Phase 1: An Unbiased Teal.... [more]

I've become increasingly aware of how people find negative reviews so much more entertaining than positive reviews, and so I'm about to let everyone down. This is a really great show, and an unusual one, and interesting for lots of different reasons; but really one main one. It's also worth saying that the title/name of the exhibition really is fitting for the experience of seeing the show. The big main thing to say is it's a curated show, although Jens Hoffmann prefers the tag 'exhibition maker' t... [more]

To be honest, I'm not very good at preparing for things.  I do manage to pack socks and a toothbrush, though the only items I figure to be truly indispensable are a passport and maybe some pants.  Everything else can be reckoned with.  I aspire to detail-oriented readiness, long for the interest and ability to compose excel sheets that excel and enumerate neat lists with reassuring checkmarks next to each accomplished task, but this is sadly not the case. I can be distracted by a particularl... [more]

Chinatown harbors many hidden secrets.  In our literature, films and fantasies, it’s the perfect placefor a hideout; it’s the location of an underground deal, a secret underworld, a land of counterfeits, a dark mystery.  Culturally impenetrable, Chinatown can be intimidating for the outsider—unintelligible signage, curious customs, the closeness of bodies, cars, bicycles, the shops overflowing into the street with their cheap wares, the denseness of the air, the unfamiliar miasma of fish oil and...

At its modern inception, the relationship between text and art is wrapped up in revolutionary politics (Futurists and Surrealist manifestoes regularly hurling their defiance at the stars) and literarature (Breton, Tzara, Stein, all breaking, bending, and finding writing to respond or sometimes help invent trends in visual art). Language breaks down and become the shattered Dada collage of nonsense and concrete poetry or the visual collapses into the manifesto, saying and doing often what pictures c... [more]
