Vintage films are known to have an intrinsic cult following. Maybe it’s because they remind us of the matte simplicity that’s fading in our digital society, or it could be the growing appreciation for classic features—when storylines were still unique and theatrics took fearless risks. Either way, we find ourselves attracted to old school cinema and the bold propaganda-esque designs that adorn their artwork. Regardless the reason for our fantastic obsession, posters from moti...

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]

“Life is a game of minutes”- Rob, Competitor, The Amazing Race, Season 1
“...that essentially Gallic individual, the deliberately aimless pedestrian, unencumbered by any obligation or sense of urgency, who, being French and therefore frugal, wastes nothing, including his time which he spends with the leisurely discrimination of a gourmet, savoring the multiple flavors of his city.” - Cornelia Otis Skinner on flâneurs
If a flâneur ever meets an Amazing Racer, they probably won’... [more]

Mike Brodie has captured something raw and honest in his series of 30 photographs on display in Los Angeles at M+B. The gallery, consisting of a converted bungalow and modern annex, provides an intimate look at the heroic historian's three-year journey as a cross-country stowaway, hitchhiker, and pedestrian. The title of the exhibition, A Period of Juvenile Prosperity, conjures the current and all-too-familiar entitlement of youth. Brodie and his travel companions, however, embody a life no... [more]
STARS BENEATH THE CTE by Stephen Blackin Singapore Architect, March 2013"Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being." – Albert Camus
Gezeitentümpel (Tidal Pools), Philipp Aldrup’s recent show at Objectifs, is a rebellion, albeit a quiet and humble one. With Tidal Pools, Aldrup has rebelled against his own past, having hurled away photojournalism and his own highly regarded documentary approach to embrace the spirits of poetry and ph... [more]

An implication of age compels us to craft histories for the artworks in A Handful of Dust. Their materials suggest a simpler time—products of earth, of metal, of wood—and their shapes imply function. Natural hues of a limited and subdued palette pervade, as if these artworks are remains all found in one place, all from one civilization.

All the world’s a stage and it’s not just the Oscars, but the contemporary art fairs of late, who are commanding it. I, for one, have been a reluctant participant in this global drive for exposing contemporary art to the masses. But thanks to Art Miami LLC and its director, Nick Korniloff, I too have become a member of the captivated audience of the art fair. Art Wynwood is its star and has given sunny Miami an event that lives up to the hype of its current art scene, one often written ab... [more]
