Joseph Beuys likes America.In May 1974 the German artist, teacher, shaman and social sculptor Joseph Beuys arrived at JFK Airport in New York.

The ambulance, sirens blazing, took him to René Block gallery where a caged off area containing hay and a live coyote waited for him. Beuys spent th... [more]

Independence day in crochet
Nothing says independence more than being able to wear a red, white and blue crocheted beer can hat!I've done my fair share of patriotic crochet.  Red, white and blue is a wonderful color combination.  Betsy Ross knew what she was doing when she put those colors together for our flag!  Here are a few projects I've crocheted in those glorious colors plus a few projects I found online.  Carol's Patriotic PotholderCarla's Patriotic PotholderFlag Afghan from Maggie's CrochetSuzette's Owly OrnamentPillows found at...

Middle of the map fest: cultural fodder from america’s city of fountains
Guest Post by Carolyn Okomo Middle of the Map Fest (Video) Though Kansas City’s Middle of the Map Fest ended this past May, the curators of the month-long salute to Midwest’s arts scene are getting ready to make preparations for next year’s activities. The festival, which just concluded its third year, is not-so-slowly but surely becoming an important cultural staple in the Kansas City-metropolitan area, the Midwestern United States, and arguably the nation. Its fusion of music, film and technolo... [more]

Cleon peterson @ the outsiders
Cleon Peterson‘s debut solo show, There Is War, opens today at The Outsiders gallery in Soho. In mood for a bit of the good ol’ ultraviolence, mixed with sex, religion, drugs, blood, rape, guns, fire and the odd policeman beating a suit? If that mixture (in art, of course!) sounds inspiring, join the crowd tonight from 6-9pm, or every day except for Sunday till the 3rd of August. For more information, here’s the press release.

In this case: the dapper palmer hayden
Palmer Hayden's The Janitor Who Paints We are always sad to see a piece leave the Luce Foundation Center, especially when it's a visitor favorite. Sometimes though, an artwork's departure (for loan or display elsewhere in the museum) gives us an opportunity put up another piece from our collection. This was the case with Palmer Hayden's The Janitor Who Paints. Many visitors have inquired about the painting over the years so we were excited when there was a space large enough to display the pain... [more]

A conversation with william powhida on the contemporary artist's "narrative"
One of the themes I kept coming back to when talking with Elizabeth Dee (see our two-part conversation on the contemporary gallery model here and here) was how the narrative (or story) of the art gallery seems to be in flux...some have even said "in crisis." What I mean by that specifically, is that why people open and run galleries, what they hope to do while running one, and what brings them to close one seems to be changing a fair bit all around us, at least compared with 10 years ago, w...

The american art-union
I’m reading Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898 (The History of New York City) at the moment, and there is a bit of American art history that was new to me. The Panic of 1837 had disrupted Manhattan’s patronage system. Cole, Sully, and Asher Durand found that merchants laughed wanly at the notion of buying paintings with their businesses facing bankruptcy. Spurred by hard times, artists fashioned new and more collective ways of supporting their work. In 1838 portraitist and engraver James... [more]

Early this morning David Bowie celebrated his 66th Birthday with the release of his first single in a decade. This song Where Are We Now?, taken from Bowie's forthcoming album The Next Day, is accompanied by an artful video directed by the contemporary artist Tony Oursler.

Quote for this campaign season
"Thus it is manifest that the best political community is formed by citizens of the middle class, and that those states are likely to be well-administered in which the middle class is large, and stronger if possible than both the other classes, or at any rate than either singly; for the addition of the middle class turns the scale, and prevents either of the extremes from being dominant. Great then is the good fortune of a state in which the citizens have a moderate and sufficient proper... [more]

People i knew without the gelatin
“The deceased, as you know, have the inconvenient habit of cooling off too slowly; they’re burning hot. So they are turned into aspics by pouring memories over them–the best form of gelatin. And since deceased greats are also too large, they are cut down. The nose, say, is served separately, or the tongue. You need less gelatin that way. And that’s how you get yesterday’s classic as freshly cooked tongue in aspic. With a side dish of hoofs, from the horse he used to ride. I’m trying to remember... [more]
