FAQ – Key Venues  
10/20/16 Posted 10/20/16

ArtSlant calendar and venue listings are split into two basic venue types: Key Venues and All Venues. WHAT IS A KEY VENUE? Key Venues are the established contemporary art galleries and museums, as identified by ArtSlant's editorial team. These designations as a way to assist our audience in navigating the extensive exhibition and venue listings on ArtSlant. Key Venues are denoted by a small checkmark next to the gallery or museum's name in our venue listings and on our maps. For example: and SEARCHING USING KEY VENUES Wh... [more]

How Do Artists Find Gallery Representation? We Asked Galleries and This Is What We Learned   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 3/31/16

How and why an artist comes to be represented by a gallery is a seemingly mysterious process, one of many parts of the industry that exist behind a veil of secrecy. Yet for an artist who has committed to making a living from their art, it is naturally a topic of some interest, one we wanted to look into a bit further. While our exploration hardly threw the entire process open—if anything it highlighted what an individual and idiosyncratic process establishing gallery representation is—we did... [more]

Art Destination: Why San Antonio Deserves More Attention   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/7/15

This past September, I did a curatorial residency at Casa Chuck in San Antonio, Texas. This was not my first time there (years before I curated an exhibition for the Contemporary Art Month) but, as it always happens when you are installing a show, I barely poked my nose out of the gallery. Happily, during this second visit I had the time to experience the best of San Antonio's arts community. San Antonio has a diverse, vibrant, and welcoming art scene that gets together in ever-fluxing arts initia... [more]

The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in Berlin   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 9/9/15

Like other industries, the art world should come under the scrutiny of fair and equitable business practices. With so much privatization in the gallery and museum world, it's as good a time as any for consumers of culture to question where funds come from—and where profits are going. This summer, we're seeking out the best not-for-profit and community conscious art spaces in the most commercial cities on the global art circuit. As part of our mission to give art a social slant, the fourth st... [more]

North America's Must-See Exhibitions This Fall   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 9/7/15

Last week we gave you our top tips for shows big and small across Europe and the Middle East as the next season in culture gears up for new conversations and ideas. Fall is often the time to see the best in the museum and gallery's programming, and this year is no exception with a healthy choice of unique presentations. This week, we look to a region that always has our readership rapt: North America. From the big institutions to the alternative spaces off the beaten track, here's what is in the person... [more]

Posted 8/30/15

It's time to emerge from our summer carapace and get on the gallery trail again. ArtSlant's editors and writers have been sifting through the torrents of press releases and Facebook events to find the best September has to offer—from the big institutes to the alternative art venues that might not be on your radar. How do we decide what makes it into our top 15? Of course, there are many good exhibitions to be found outside of this necessary reduction, but our editorial staff have an eye f... [more]

Art or Not?  
2/20/15 Posted 2/20/15

Art or Not? The art PR world: love it or hate it, it's a dab hand at spin. Each week, ArtSlant asks our readers to indulge us in a game of spot the difference. This week: empty galleries. Which of the images described below is judged to be a genuine work of art, by an artist who has won a prestigious art prize? #1 Lights go on, lights go off—sunshine and rain, and then back to beginning to repeat endlessly.

The year’s roster includes Germany representatives for this year’s Venice Biennale, Tobias Zielony and Hito Steyerl, pioneering feminist and experimental cinematographer Barbara Hammer, Russian activist collective Chto Delat?, Mario Pfeifer, Renzo Martens, and Clemens von Wedemeyer. Why is it so important to show and engage with film and video work? ... [more]

[VIDEO] Warsaw Gallery Weekend 2014   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/1/14

On the occasion of the Warsaw Gallery Weekend (WGW) 2014 we have just visited eight very diverse positions. The main program of the WGW was supported by 21 local galleries and one guest gallery from Prague. Collateral events were supported by institutions such as Zacheta – National Gallery of Art, Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, National Museum in Warsaw, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Theatre Institute, Adam Mickiewicz Institute or Academy of Fine Arts. This year, the Warsaw... [more]

Required Viewing – Chicago: Pictures for a Generation   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 9/5/14

Of the multitude of exhibitions opening this September in Chicago, one stands—or falls—singularly into view. A complete series of work by Maccarone artist Sarah Charlesworth that helped to define the Pictures Generation will be shown for the first time at the Art Institute of Chicago. The series, entitled Stills, features figures falling from great heights, suspended in front of buildings that function more as a frame than as a backdrop—static yet tense. Teasing the weight and...

The British (and the French) are coming!: Veterans meet new arrivals during Brussels Art Days   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 9/4/14

That Brussels has a thriving art scene is no longer a secret to the international art community. We’ve reached the point where some media have even baptized what was formerly regarded as a dull and grey city as the “New Berlin.” There’s no better moment to check it out with your own eyes than during the seventh edition of Brussels Art Days (BAD), Brussels’ reply to the Gallery Weekend in Berlin you might say. Twenty-nine galleries open their doors next weekend, while others not affiliated under the... [more]

No Longer Lonely (but maybe still a bit brutal): September Openings Across Los Angeles   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 9/4/14

The long languor of summer never truly fades in Los Angeles, but the heat simmers down just enough for the long sunsets to subside into cool nights, when prodigal travelers hurry home from sunstroked beaches and slaving artists vernissage across the city. Autumnal LA, though it certainly colors, hardly chills. Art exhibitions thickly dapple across this considerable town: Giuseppe Penone at Gagosian and Sam Falls at Hannah Hoffman on the 5th. On the 6th, Culver City unbolts with Ryan Mosley and Edgar... [more]

In Madrid young is sometimes old, sometimes French, but mostly from Berlin   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 2/18/14

For about two decades now the qualifications “young,” “emerging,” and “new” have functioned as the ultimate buzzwords, inspiring a Pavlovian rustle of checkbooks amongst collectors “buying with their ears.” No wonder art fairs have latched onto the phenomenon by creating special sections dedicated to gallery start-ups. At Frieze it’s called Frame; Art Brussels has Young; Art Rotterdam’s got a New Art Section. And there is, of course, LISTE, the fair designed from the start to showcase th... [more]

Art Rotterdam’s Great Leap Forward   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
at Art Rotterdam February 6th, 2014 - February 9th, 2014
Posted 2/3/14

Fifteen years into the game Art Rotterdam has comfortably settled into the role of top contemporary art fair in the Netherlands. But director Fons Hof is not resting on his laurels. Edition 2014 signals a Great Leap Forward. This is to be taken quite literally as the fair is moving from the Cruise Terminal on the Kop van Zuid to the monumental Van Nellefabriek. The new venue, with its peripheral location bringing to mind Frieze New York, has a lot going for it: the catering – slow and poor... [more]
