In 2009, Cheim & Read hung the provocative group show The Female Gaze: Women Look at Women, which showcased women artists taking control of their own images. In an encore presentation this summer, women artists turn their gaze this time toward men, reversing one of art’s most long-standing power structures. The Female Gaze Part II: Women Look at Men brings together work from 32 artists, all utilizing the subject of men, or the male body, as a way to confront, or even turn the tables on the Male Gaze,...

“But a storm is blowing from Paradise; it has got caught in his wings with such violence that the angel can no longer close them.” Walter Benjamin wrote these words describing Paul Klee’s Angelus Novus in his 1940 essay “These on the Philosophy of History.” The storm, he continues, is “what we call progress.” In the Guggenheim Museum’s ongoing group exhibition But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa,...

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Scorpion Dagger   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 8/10/16

The GIF artist Scorpion Dagger (aka James Kerr) presents an alternative version of the Renaissance that cleverly satirizes both that time and our modern world. The transgressive aesthetic and comedic narratives of his work defy all traditional expectations of the medium. His art is joyful and inclusive and has achieved a huge following through his chosen platform, Tumblr. While digital art continues to blur the line between high art and popular culture, unnecessary, invisible limits are still some... [more]

I lost sleep when Portugal beat France to win its first-ever European Cup football championship this month. Not from nerves—despite living in Portugal, I had no skin in the game—but from the unremitting cacophony of car horns and vuvuzelas invading my apartment. Up for celebrating, I joined the impromptu party of waving flags, sticky splashes of Super Bock, and staccato football chants. I fell asleep to sounds of revelry, comforted by the fact that even in troubling times, such overpowe... [more]

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]
