What do they want?They want to meet and share their art with others.What don’t they want? Being closed in rigid frames.What unites them?
The Internet and Art.What divides them?

They were caught by the Web. From casual chatting online in autumn 2008 to spring 2011 there happened a lot. There has been born and got matured a... [more]
O the sleeping bag contains the body but not the dreaming head on show at the Altman Siegel Gallery from April 18th to June 1st, features work by three artists; Alice Channer, Aaron Flint Jamison and Anicke Yi. The title is taken from a poem by Matthea Harvey, a dark meditation on containment, or it’s failure. This is the theme that unites the three artists, whose work at first seems unconnected in medium and subject.
Alice Channer’s Body Fluids is the first to confront me as I enter the gallery- a large digital print that is draped over a steel bar hung n... [more]

Kiran Subbaiah wanted to kill himself in Suicide Note (2006) because that’s the way truly famous people rolled, according to him. While viewing Narcissicon (2012), it seemed that he had made a miserable botch of a suicide. Because this time, his selves have multiplied, taken up residence together and freely borrow clothes from each other, get into scuffles, stabbings and passive-aggressive arguments.
Kiran Subbaiah, a contemporary artist based in Bengaluru has been delighting and provoking us with his conceptual scu... [more]

Die Ausstellung SIEGESIKONEN - transFORM ist ein Versuch die diversen Facetten der Metamorphosen zu veranschaulichen, die sowohl ganze Nationen als auch uns selbst persönlich betreffen. Über 100 Künstler verschiedenen Alters und Nationalität nehmen teil. In Bildern, Collagen, multimedialen Arbeiten und dokumentarischen Fotos, welche manchmal sehr dramatische, manchmal lustige und oft auch absurde Ereignisse aus den 80er und 90er Jahren festhalten, betrachten die Künstler unterschiedliche Wege g...

Gretta Sarfaty gained international recognition in the late 70’ as a body-art and performance artist. Beginning with a traditional medium of painting, she early started to experiment with new media and performance. Even if her art has remained authentically ingenious over the years, the ways of her expression have changed, reflecting the evolution of digital technology.
She has never been dogmatic: even when expressing a strongly feminist approach, she moves smoothly around multitude of questi... [more]
Being overtly spiritual doesn’t seem to be the norm in the contemporary art world. It’s amusing, considering that contemporary art world is more or less a faith-based system that combines ‘an uneasy godlessness with a religious memory’1: the cult of a faithful few, visiting hallowed premises of esoteric objects, where meanings are made and unmade by the high priests of scholarship.
Thoughts like these are bound to cross one’s mind when one is en route to the first Indian solo exhi... [more]
Installation view, Sean Kennedy: Territory: First Solo Show, courtesy of Thomas Duncan Gallery
Thomas Duncan Gallery presents three installations by Los Angeles-based artist Sean Kennedy during Week 1 of Territory, a five-week exhibition of solo shows from March 19-April 20, 2013. I visited the gallery on the afternoon of the last day of Kennedy's show. Upon entering the unassuming Hollywood space, I worried that I was too late: all of the walls were blank. Soon after, I realized my observa... [more]
My article about the Bruce Nauman show "mindfuck" where I investigate how sometimes theoritical catalogue essays tell you how to read an artwork rather than opening the conversation. For artfetch.com
Visitors to Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum Mumbai this summer will be confronted by the vision of a giant cobweb made up of oversized rubber stamps on its prim Palladian facade. Though it bears the name of Reena Saini Kallat as the creator, imaginative children might look around for an escapee giant spider from the neighbouring zoo. This public work of art, Untitled (Cobweb / Crossings), is a collaboration between ZegnArt / Public, an initiative of the Italian Fashion Major Ermenegildo Zegna, and th... [more]
Barbara Ash’s recent collection of works challenges stereotypical ideas about women
"I think it’s depressing that girls are constantly surrounded by messages that are telling them they are not acceptable unless they follow this narrow orthodoxy,” said Barbara Ash, whose sculptures and drawings have strong roots in women’s struggle with the image centric world. “It marginalises the majority and puts a focus on superficial issues rather than in de...

Here is There Whitdel Arts has been repainted, redone, refurnished and has now refreshed its resolve to being one of the preeminent art spaces for the city. On 2/22 they will unveil Anywhere But Here, being described as a "transformative installation exhibition" that has transformed Whitdel into "six all-encompassing environments where the viewer is invited to adventure into, and be surrounded by, the installation." We love magical mystery tours, don't you? The six individuals who did the half-dozen... [more]
Art review by Agni by agnibond Craig Norton at Carl Hammer Gallery
February 15th 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
This is Craig Norton’s first Solo show in Chicago and he has really impressed the audience with his Mixed Media three dimensional Wall Art.
In Dropping Mom Off at the Old folks Home, Norton draws attention to the insecurities that come with old age. He also highlights the mentality of our society towards old people. We think of them as an outcast and neglect them.
His works are mainly a combination of drawings and collages layered on top of wood cutouts. The work touch the Robert Rauschenberg’s... [more]
Art review by Agni by agnibond Don't Fret at Johalla Projects
February 8th 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Don’t Fret’s work is carefree and hilarious not only through the characters but also through the texts. It depicts the common life of everyday people that encompasses the issues related to teenage, adulthood, old age, deprived sex-life, relationships, fights, etc. The works flirts with the genres of portrait, figurative and landscape painting (in terms of the setting they are in). Since they depicted scenes are closely related to us we can infer they are our biographies. Unlike Tim Arroyo th... [more]

A Portrait of the Psyche
Persona is a word that can mean that aspect or part of one’s personality that is deliberately shown to the world, or in the Jungian sense, and hearkening back to the etymology of the word (from the Greek “prosōpon”), a theatrical mask which covers the wearer.
In the current exhibition at the Therese A. Maloney Gallery, director and curator Dr. Virginia Fabbri Butera, by choosing this particular word as both the theme and the title, has opened a dual vision and in... [more]
Kim Neudorf on Patrick Howlett
A sketch, a drawing, shavings of colour floating across a crammed shape of wood. Blinking, tiny with eyes glazed in the knot-hole of a naked expanse of white wall.
An arrow shape of flag. Plain fruit. Plastic blues and curving snips of green. Edges held fast. Flue closed. Soup tin and the slope of water. Balanced, hunched forward. Flat-rinse, watery lens. Get inside the shape, inside the outline of a thought.
Slow going. Ice cream pool, scrap... [more]
