Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: davidope   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 7/13/16

Budapest-based davidope (aka David Szakaly) is one of the best known GIF artists on the planet. The Tumblr page he started in 2008 became an inspiration for a generation of net artists that followed him. The extent of his sweeping popularity is best illustrated when you type “GIF,” or “animated GIF,” into Google images and his work appears at the top of the page. While many might not recognize his name, they are likely familiar with his distinctive aesthetic. His most fami... [more]

RADIOACTIVE: An Interview with Maria Gaspar  
by
7/11/16 Posted 7/11/16

Chicago, July 2016: I spoke with artist Maria Gaspar about her upcoming project RADIOACTIVE: Stories from Beyond the Wall on the Fourth of July. We talked about mass incarceration, a central subject of Gaspar’s work, on a day that asks people in the US to reflect on freedom. Days after Gaspar shared her thoughts on art and disruption, names like Alton Sterling and Philando Castile started to break open the stitches of old and new wounds and raise questions about freedom. I couldn’t ignore the... [more]

Sam Lewitt's Temperature-Raising Intervention Is More Than a Hot Take   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Sam Lewitt at Swiss Institute June 8th - July 24th
Posted 6/29/16

The temperature in New York had reached the low 80s when I schlepped downtown for Sam Lewitt's Less Lights Warm Words at the Swiss Institute. Entering the gallery, which is nestled between the frenzy of Canal street and SoHo, it immediately became clear that the title of Lewitt’s intervention was a massive understatement. Dispersed throughout the otherwise serene gallery space are large-scale copper heating circuits connected to the tall ceiling with loosely hung black wires. Dominating t... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Sabrina Ratté   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 6/29/16

Montreal-based video artist Sabrina Ratté makes stunning electronic environments that recall (or predict) an era where society has perfected a clinical, aesthetic beauty at the cost of fleshy emotion. That is not to say her work doesn’t inspire feelings. It affects you on a primal level because these places feel like they exist deep within our collective, aspirational unconsciousness. There is a calm spirituality and reassuring familiarity here that, ironically, often only serves to e... [more]
