Adel Gorgy's work in Issues at Arts Guild New Jersey 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]

Carine Magescas at Emmanuel Fremin Gallery > New York
May 7th - June 12th
Posted 4/26/15

Angie Davey, Creative Director of Eyestorm UK, introduces the work and talks more about the series below. New York based French photographer Carine Magescas’ minimal seascapes are inspired by the vast open beaches of California. Something that first attracted me to Carine Magescas’ beautiful photographic works was their overwhelming sense of calm and openness. As a fellow beach-lover and appreciator of vast open spaces - Carine became submerged by the immenseness of the... [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]

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." Read more at http://www.ph... [more]

20150107094003-blowup "Swinging London" Meets Conceptual Photography at C/O's Blow-Up  
by
at C/O Berlin > Berlin
2/18/15 Posted 2/18/15

C/O Berlin recently moved to its new home, the Amerika Haus, a 1950s architectural trademark that saw little of the vicious consumerism and booming hedonism that characterized the so-called "Swinging 60s," yet plays perfect host to an exhibition centered on the era. C/O's current exhibition Blow-Up revolves around Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni's iconic 1966 film of the same name. Photography’s ability to picture reality is challenged both in the movie, as well as in the exhibiti... [more]

The Grandfather of Black British Photography's Apartment Is the Exhibition

2/12/15 Posted 2/12/15

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...

Kehinde Wiley Brings His Portraiture to Life for Fashion Week

2/10/15 Posted 2/10/15

Kehinde Wiley normally paints sumptuous portraits of people of color in heroic poses drawn from classical portraiture. The popular New York artist has an upcoming solo show at the Brooklyn Museum called A New Republic which will present 60 paintings and sculptures from the past 14 years. We're really excited for the exhibit and were pleased to see some synergy between New York Fashion Week and Wiley. Wiley finds most of his models on the street, casting everyday people into iconic moments. Of... [more]

Gary Winogrand at Jeu de Paume > Paris
October 14th, 2014 - February 8th
Posted 2/5/15

Jack Kerouac wrote in the introduction of Robert Frank’s paradigm-shattering book ‘The Americans’ that Frank sucked a sad poem right out of America onto film; if this is true then I would argue that Garry Winogrand pulled, cajoled and yes, sucked a sad epic poem right out of America with the excess of a film-junkie. This sadness is not only evident in many of his pictures but it also belies his ebullient, brash and often abrasive public image. The full 1977 video recording fro... [more]

20141025105515-gw01 Garry Winogrand : The Man behind the Pictures  
by
Gary Winogrand at Jeu de Paume > Paris
October 14th, 2014 - February 8th
Posted 1/27/15

Ebullient, cantankerous, evasive, dogmatic, confrontational, a walking contradiction; Garry Winogrand was all of this and more, that’s if I believe the reviews, essays and YouTube videos. The photographer’s public persona was not an easy one to try to engage with if you were a student, interviewer or even a friend. I guess if I met him I would, after the inevitable short confrontational encounter, ask him to get the hell out of the room but I would ask him to leave his pictures behind.... [more]

Zakkir Hussain at GALLERYSKE - Bangalore > India
January 17th - February 27th
Posted 1/21/15

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]

Art or Not?

1/10/15 Posted 1/10/15

Art or Not? Who is to say what is art or not? One of the pictures with description below is a genuine art work: every Friday ArtSlant asks our discerning readers if they can spot the difference. This week, it's a bad hair day. #1 "Painted in two separate periods, this picture has a complex history. In its original state, it showed a pink-faced man, wearing a white shirt and a black suit. It was painted in a deliberately simple, naive style, using household, rather than oil paint, and incorporated various ma... [more]
