Art review: 'Supernatural' @ Jancar Gallery August 20, 2010 |  6:30 am The supernatural was a linchpin for art in every culture since time immemorial – at least until the science-infused modern era said, “Hold on.” The inflation of nature into something super, whether volcanoes as terrible pathways linking the underworld to the heavens, resurrection as a triumph over death or constellations as symbols of heroes and deities, typically served as a means...

In the continuous discussion on the effectiveness of activist art, Andrea Bowers provides a strong case in its favor. In her current exhibition, Mercy Mercy Me she focuses on nonviolent acts of dissent that raise awareness to the direct consequences of climate change and manmade environmental disasters.  Although she references activists from Nigeria to California, she appears to have been primarily inspired by her visit to Northern Alaska in August, where she spent time at Arctic Village –...

It has been a rough start to the new millennium, and sadly art survey shows have failed to reflect the context in which art makers and viewers live. Thankfully Lauri Firstenberg of LAXART has remedied the disconnect with the 2008 California Biennial. Before you walk in the door, Sam Durant's banners (in English and Spanish) hijack the OC's civic-boosterism-via-banner-blight, by reminding residents that their comfortable homes were built by the sweat of an undocumented workforce, on a piece of...

Amateurs marks a shift in the discussion of high-art versus low-art. Previous exhibitions that included works by Jim Shaw, for instance, always had the inherent hint of irony. Irony is less in the forefront here and therefore this exhibition informs the dialogue surrou... [more]
