         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

Voynich Manuscript. image via Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library We've never done this before. This year we launched our first-ever Curator's Open, where we asked you to use our massive database of art to curate our booth at EXPO Chicago. We then handed over the submissions to an expert jury of curators to decide which show we should put on. They selected Amsterdam-based curator and critic Manus Groenen's show "Cryptographics: a tribute to the Voynich Manuscript." Featurin... [more]

The Margaret Atwood Book You'll Never Get to Read  
9/5/14 Posted 9/5/14

Word of Scottish artist Katie Paterson’s Future Library made the rounds this summer when the artist launched her 100-year-long project to build a library literally from the forest floor up. Future Library is back in the news again after it was announced this week that the first author to contribute a new work to the library will be none other than Man Booker Prize winner Margaret Atwood. Paterson is known to think big—on a geological or even astronomical scale. She embedded a cell p... [more]

Forrest Bess at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive June 11th - September 14th
Posted 9/4/14

Among the giants (Rothko, Still, and Pollock) represented by the Betty Parsons gallery in the 50’s and 60’s, there roamed the small but potent work of an artist named Forrest Bess. He hailed from Bay City, Texas, a bait fisherman and oil rig roughneck by day, and a conduit for the visualization of eternal truths by night. Parsons heard his name through the grapevine, and when she came to Texas, she ate him up with her silver spoon. Parsons mounted no less than six solo exhibits of B... [more]

Gorgeous Fetish at the Asian Art Museum  
9/4/14 Posted 9/4/14

The other night I went to an event that combines a few of my favorite things: floral design, performance art, dance, and sex. The SF Asian Art Museum showcased the event, Evoco, performed by artists Midori, Lady Samar, and Three. This is what happened – oh yeah, and it’s all going on with intense trance music, spun by DJ Rock in the background: -Three and Lady Samar are positioned on a low stage, which is covered in flowers, in the center of a pretty big room with high ceiling...

Me and Mrs. Rosenberg  
9/1/14 Posted 9/1/14

I used to live in a high rise apartment building in Chicago, Illinois that had an overwhelmingly large population of Jewish widows. I ended up becoming quite friendly with many of them. Cookie, Thelma, Harriet, Eleanor. A veritable stable of adopted Bubbies. I recently finished writing a fictionalized short story of some of these ladies for issue three of Majestic Disorder magazine. They were and are darling yentas, who elevated matzo ball soup to pure delight. My favorite part of my days spent in... [more]

Faye Dunaway is that kind of movie star that has a handsome formality stamped on her. She carries herself in monster proportions and when one hears tales about her it’s like hearing of an old legend like Beowolf. One choice epic about her is an incident concerning a young reporter from a British newspaper. The journalistic novice had not been with the newspaper for very long and in some cruel rite of passage was dispatched early on in his position to interview Dunaway on her life as an a... [more]

The Art of Perfection: James Lee Byars at MoMA PS1  
James Lee Byars at MoMA PS1 June 15th - September 7th
Posted 8/31/14

On August 11, 1977, the California Museum of Science and Industry in Los Angeles hosted Space Day, a carefully planned and tightly orchestrated media event organized by Whole Earth Catalog editor and environmental activist Stewart Brand. The symposium was an odd pairing, merging the utopian messaging of the back-to-the-land movement with a campaign to establish space colonies put forth by the military-aeronautics industry. In an opening speech, honored guest, astronaut Russell Schweickart spoke to... [more]

ADSPREDELSE/UDSPREDELSE (Perec vs. Copenhagen)  
8/30/14 Posted 8/30/14

“Why not set a higher value of dispersal? Instead of living just one place,and trying in vain to gather yourself together there, why not have five or six rooms dotted around Paris? I’d go an sleep in Denfert, I’d write in the Place Voltaire, I’d listen to music in the Place Clichy, I’d make love at the Poterne des Peupliers, I’d eat in the Rue de la Tombe-Issoire, I’d read by the Parc Monceau, etc.” - Georges Perec, The main inspiratio...

Daniel Buren at Palais Royal August 1st, 1986 - December 31st, 2024
Posted 8/28/14

Given that we are in the zombie month of August when most galleries are closed, your faithful correspondent decided that it was time to go and check out some permanent public art: Daniel Buren’s 1986 installation Les Deux Plateau, apparently more commonly known as Colonnes de Buren. I’m assuming that for such a worldly audience as ArtSlant’s, these titles need no translation. But what is it? Well, it’s a grid of 260 candy-stripped columns, in a grid of candy-stripped lines in...
