Confronting Manufactured Divides  
by
Valerie Jouve at Jeu de Paume 8/31/15 Posted 8/31/15

In a time of rampant gentrification and widening socio-economic gaps, Valérie Jouve has storied the fraught relationship between the human body and the metropolis, imagining the latter as a theater in which her protagonists are behooved to adapt. Subjects with reclined heads, stiff facial expressions, or confident postures, their bodies caught in motion, create a narrative that wavers between survival and surrender in her Jeu De Paume retrospective, Bodies, Resisting, which spans a career large...

Posted 8/3/15

Welcome to the seventh installation of the Artslant podcast series, Working (it) Out. My name is Gillian Dykeman, and I'm a visual artist living in Toronto, Ontario. This summer, I am interviewing artists to ask about the role of audience in their practice. Each interview will begin with one question: "Does art require an audience?"

Beautiful Experiments  
by
László Moholy-Nagy at Santa Barbara Museum of Art July 5th - September 27th
Posted 8/2/15

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come puts forth a unique take on Moholy-Nagy's painted work with the incorporation of two interventionist pieces by other creators and a smattering of his own theatrical and photographic works. Due to the technology-based works’ expense and inherent complications, Moholy-Nagy reinvestigated painting as a medium to explore light and optics, while still drawing inspiration from these periodic experiments with other media. Perhaps somewhat mi... [more]

John Waters at Sprüth Magers London July 1st - August 15th
Posted 7/7/15

Look, here's the thing: under certain circumstances (in a court of law, in matters of dress, in affairs of the heart) I believe in being totally up-front and honest, which is why I believe that I should tell you from the outset that I am absolutely crazy about John Waters. I mean to say: I actually once came very close to having the man's initials permanently tattooed onto my bicep after a meet 'n' greet. That was back, I think, in 2012, when my body was a slightly more worthy vessel to be etched o... [more]

Confusion - PoeTograph on Film  
by
5/15/15 Posted 5/15/15

Throwback to a time before digital images and social media, before smart phones with apps that put words on images, I used to write on my photography. Not directly on the print, but on the film or on glass overlays BEFORE I printed my work. #PoeTography - darkroom style. Was just digging around and found this and was surprised anew by this work - to see how true it is that the more we change, the more we stay the same. I dare myself to write on images now as it is new, when it really is an i... [more]

How to Make Twin Peaks Lynchian Without David Lynch   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 4/9/15

“Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like a girl without a secret.” Sheryl Lee a.k.a Laura Palmer, begins the roll call of cast members from this most mythical of shows, voicing support for the return of their auteur. Lynch, who quit work on the returning show had this to say on Twitter: After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done. — David Lynch (@DAVID_LYNCH) April 5, 2015 ...

An interview with film maker Amiel Courtin-Wilson  
by
4/4/15 Posted 4/4/15

In Praise of Shadows. Every society has its accepted, encouraged art. The tone is prosaic, but pleasing. It aims for beauty, comforting, but not convulsive. Like all good propaganda, it quietly sells us a particular type of story. This form of cultural commerce, in the words of Slavoj Žižek, “doesn’t give you what you desire, it tells you how to desire.” Soviet social realism honoured the proletariat. The worker was strong, happy and, above all else, obedient. The ideal was un... [more]

Alternative Waters: a Personal View of Recent Macri Portraits by Kenneth Radu  
by
12/6/14 Posted 12/6/14

Part I People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]

Black Box and White Cube Merge but Audiences Are Slow to Follow   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

The current art market status of video art is comparable to that of photography in the early nineties. Back then photography wasn’t considered "real art" requiring hard-won skills going beyond simply pointing a lens and pressing a button. Moreover, prints could be reproduced endlessly rendering the work devoid of true artistic aura, a Benjaminesque nightmare. For video art too, controlling editions and authentication are the biggest obstacles to overcome, even more than trying to convince co... [more]

Alchemists, Necromancers, and Magicians: An Alternative History of Illusion and the Moving Image   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 11/25/14

The moving image has a long-standing relationship with trickery: deceiving the eye, suspending disbelief, displaying the impossible. In fact, it's devilishly good at it. Everybody's heard about the audience who ran screaming from the oncoming train at the premiere of the Lumiere Brothers’ L'Arrivée d'un train... (1895). I recently read a suggestion that they ran partly to avoid being crushed by a steam train and partly because they knew doing so offered them bit parts in an anecdo... [more]

Classic Graffiti Movie Portrays New York Scene in the '70s

10/8/14 Posted 10/8/14

Take the train that shuttles from Grand Central Terminal to Times Square. It’s a short ride, dependably stocked with commuters, and reliably taken over by advertisers who cover every available inch with glossy graphics. The inside and the outside of every car get the full treatment—so that you can’t possible ignore their call to purchase. In New York City, the advertisers have us by the eyeballs. In the seventies, the battle for public space was not yet won. In fact, subway car... [more]

Interview with Wendelien van Oldenborgh: Between cinematic reality and polyphonic clash

Amsterdam, Oct. 2014: She felt honored to have been nominated for the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art. The list of previous recipients is impressive: Carel Visser, Peter Struycken, Mark Manders, and Daan van Golden are among them. With a cool 100,000 euro attached in prize money, it’s one of the biggest art awards in Europe (for comparison: Turner Prize winners get 40,000 pounds, roughly half of that amount). But Wendelien van Oldenborgh did not expect to win the award, which she received last... [more]
