by

Tonight in London: at 6.30pm GMT artist Dora Budor gives a lecture on "digital vampires, a-historicity of the perfect CGI image, use of special effects in film in relation to their fictionalized histories and the labor of the undead, the wet body of film and its viral behaviour, alien seduction, DNA splicing of the cinematic body." The talk is presented by experimental moving image platform TANK TV where Budor has been a resident for the past 10 days, presenting both an online and IRL exhibition at the Tan... [more]

"Distance", a marble milestone installation, as part of the exhibition "Land of Nod" by Achia Anzi (Achia Anzi/ Threshold Art Gallery) Achia Anzi It’s such a beautiful and brilliant concept that its best explanation can come only the one who has created it. That’s the Israeli artist Achia Anzi. We ask him to elaborate on the title of his exhibition – and in fact, the exhibition itself, which is called the “Land of Nod”. Explains A... [more]

Art or Not? Who is to say what is art or not? One of the pictures with description below is a genuine art work: every Friday ArtSlant asks our discerning readers if they can spot the difference. This week: which of the images depicting ripped apparel below is a museum-exhibited artwork? #1 This artist began exploring how gender myths are inscribed and spread, in particular through clothing fashions. Literally ripping asunder fixed ideals of beauty, his humorous, often provocative, performances and interventions in the public... [more]

by
at The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art > Worldwide Cambridge
January 30th - May 29th
Posted 1/29/15

(JEFFREY MCNARY) James Baldwin wrote, "The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions hidden by the answers." Few galleries of art hold true to that magnetic north like the recently opened Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art at Harvard University. In this space, stories dance. Tales unfold, enlightening and reminding of the African diaspora and its hopes, dreams, visions and tears. There's heavy traffic in such endeavors, with much wreckage on the roadside and splinters o... [more]

Posted 1/29/15

Radical. Indiferent. The Black Square went from reflecting upon the world, to creating its own world. Radical obliteration led to a complete denial of all previous attempts at reducing, abstracting, synthetizing ‘something’. The Black Square marked the beginning of an end, and an end as a new beginning. Its urgent, imperfect surface was the blueprint of nothingness. With it, nothingness was graspable, within reach. The Black Square was nothingness as a project of aesthetic self-repre... [more]

Roaming the Megalopolis: Spotlight on Julien Segard  
by
1/28/15 Posted 1/28/15

The prestigious Birla Academy of Art & Culture, Calcutta, will feature French artist Julien Segard with a solo booth presentation at this year’s India Art Fair. The selection of Segard’s recent drawings promises to be a provocative insight into the social fabric of Delhi—host city of the fair—and an urban muse which Segard calls "an unsettling extreme of contrasts." Segard is fearless and scrupulous in his studies of life lived on the streets. His most recent drawings foc... [more]

20141025105515-gw01 Garry Winogrand : The Man behind the Pictures  
by
Gary Winogrand at Jeu de Paume > Paris
October 14th, 2014 - February 8th
Posted 1/27/15

Ebullient, cantankerous, evasive, dogmatic, confrontational, a walking contradiction; Garry Winogrand was all of this and more, that’s if I believe the reviews, essays and YouTube videos. The photographer’s public persona was not an easy one to try to engage with if you were a student, interviewer or even a friend. I guess if I met him I would, after the inevitable short confrontational encounter, ask him to get the hell out of the room but I would ask him to leave his pictures behind... [more]

Björk's Breakup Album  
by
1/27/15 Posted 1/27/15

New Björk album. Vulnicura. Her ninth proper. Two main strands of conversation emerge in the public and media reaction: 1. Didn't she (and her team) deal with the whole album leak/rush release thing so much better than Madonna (and her team) did the other month? 2. It's a breakup album, isn't it? For an artist so adept at dealing with latest innovations in technology, it's perhaps interesting that the central lyrical theme of Vulnicura, chronicling her break-up with long term partner...

HUMANS HAVE HUNGER FOR HUMANITY, DOES DOGS (THIS IS JUST A METAPHOR YOU CAN THINK OF ANY OTHER NON LIVING ANIMAL LIKE FRIDGE, SOFA, WASHING MACHINE, AUTOMOBILES TOO) HAVE HUNGER FOR DOGITY!  LoL  
by
Zakkir Hussain at GALLERYSKE - Bangalore > India
January 17th - February 27th
Posted 1/21/15

Zakir Hussain’s latest works at Gallery SKE in Bangalore is a wonderful presentation of works to understand that originality can only be claimed as an unclaimed, seen as the other in the final omnipresent grand narrative of itself. The claim to originality that his works make in the beginning is by having a title ‘no title’. This is very interesting as the self proclamation of having no title negates the presence of the trace of the past. If there is any c... [more]

Opening Night Report: Deadbeat Club: Mentally Retired, LA  
by
1/20/15 Posted 1/20/15

By the time I’d arrived, several hundred people had lined the sidewalk of N. Figueroa Ave and edged themselves around the corner onto Avenue 60 some two blocks away. It was a clusterfuck, albeit, a pretty relaxed one. The atmosphere surrounding the Highland Park gallery and retail space Slow Culture is chill. A few tags from nomadic friends blend with the charm of the traditional neighborhood, plus the mosaic Space Invader installation above the entrance door is a sweet touch. Upon entry, I... [more]
