A gaggle of young adults dressed to the nines on a street corner in Silver Lake, CA, is not an uncommon occurrence. It probably happens every day for some reason or another. It’s not so common, however, when the entire street corner itself is also dressed up. At the intersection of Bates and Sunset, you can see an entire block coated in white wash. The former Bates Motel and its surroundings, including fences, barbed wire, palm trees, and shrubbery, are all covered in an organic, lime-ba... [more]
Northwest Florida's little know Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach has just announced its 27 artist line-up for its 8th edition taking place in 2015. Digital Graffiti (creating graffiti using computer software and technology) is a relatively undeveloped field, surprising considering the surge of interest in both graffiti and digital arts practices respectively.
The festival elicits participants come from the fields of film, art, and music who project their art on site at Alys Beach, a luxury devel... [more]
I entered the small, unassuming gallery space as a bearded head popped out from the back of the room and said, “Are you here to get your MFA?”
“Yes!” I replied cheerfully. Because I was. I read that I could get an MFA in just one day at the Tenderloin Institute of Art, hosted by SFAQ, and I was immediately on board. If showing up was the application process, I was already excelling with flying colors.
The man introduced himself as Dean Jeremiah Jenkins, and together... [more]

Contemporary art and social activism often swim in the same waters. The connection crosses borders and decades, as creative individuals—in art and literature, performance and song—have given voice, sometimes the only one, to victims of turmoil and iniquities.
Issues, an exhibition in which a group of contemporary artists respond to political, social, racial, gender, and economic issues facing the world in recent years opened M... [more]

A Change is Gonna Come Solo exhibition Marco Pezzotta (1985)Curated by Bogomir Doringer *** The artistic interest from Marco Pezzotta lays in examining different systems in which our identity is being either formed or changed. We stand in those systems as individuals or as part of a group. For describing and shaping these relations Marco Pezzotta uses objects that function as tools for a narrative. They appear from another space and time, floating between digital and physical. The artist creates... [more]

What does Britain really look like? How do the UK's students see the nation's politics and how do they see their political future?
On Friday The Guardian launched a nationwide iniative to create alternative art for the UK general elections which take place in May. Inspired by iconic election posters of the past—and by the more recent graphics produced by students in Dundee during last September's Scottish independence referendum—The Guardian is sending out another open call to art s...

"So, yes, we've come a long way from those tablets that Moses brought down from the mount.
The show came about when curator Susan Isaacs, who teaches at Towson University, "started seeing a trend and realizing that a lot of artists were dealing with spiritual texts," said Gershman executive director Maxine Gaiber. The two worked together to bring the works to Philly."

In her first solo museum exhibition, West Valley College art department chairwoman Kathryn Arnold explores the concept of language and the ways in which language interprets what we experience.
Aptly titled, "The Impact of Language," the exhibition opens on Valentine's Day at the Triton Museum of Art and runs through March 29. In this exhibit, Arnold showcases about a dozen works, including large-sc... [more]
Language Explored in Kathryn Arnold’s Solo Show By Melissa McKenzie http://www.santaclaraweekly.com/2015/Issue-8/language_explored_in_kathryn_arnolds_solo_show.html If someone is characterized as “short,” “chipper” or “stubborn,” it will immediately implant an image about the person being described. Although not often contemplated, there are strong implications associated with language. And, despite there being no standard of what the line is for “... [more]
Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, UK, is planning an ambitious undertaking: they want to move an artist’s whole flat into the gallery. And they need your help.
There are precedents to this type of project—Song Dong’s landmark 2009 installation, Waste Not, springs to mind, as does Dawn Kasper’s reconstruction of her studio at the 2012 Whitney Biennial—but the subject of this project and the contents of his archive are not only of artistic interest, but also cultural, socio...

.........Curator, J. Susan "Isaacs, a Delaware native who is a professor of art history and the curator of the departmental galleries at Towson University in Maryland, has since refined and expanded “And the Word Is … ” to hew closer to her original intent to demonstrate how art can provide an ecumenical examination of where and how people draw religious inspiration."..........

James Baldwin wrote, "The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions hidden by the answers." Few galleries of art hold true to that magnetic north like the recently opened Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art at Harvard University. In this space, stories dance. Tales unfold, enlightening and reminding of the African diaspora and its hopes, dreams, visions and tears. There's heavy traffic in such endeavors, with much wreckage on the roadside and splinters o... [more]
Zakir Hussain’s latest works at Gallery SKE in Bangalore is a wonderful presentation of works to understand that originality can only be claimed as an unclaimed, seen as the other in the final omnipresent grand narrative of itself. The claim to originality that his works make in the beginning is by having a title ‘no title’. This is very interesting as the self proclamation of having no title negates the presence of the trace of the past. If there is any coincide... [more]
