A (Virtual) Studio Visit in the Most Secretive Country in the World   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 11/10/14

North Korea is often prefixed with the words "the most secretive country in the world." It was therefore a surprise to discover not only that the country has a rather unusual embassy in London—a suburban home in Gunnersbury quite far from the center—but also that it recently opened its doors to visitors for an art exhibition. The North Korean Embassy, London; Photo: Mark Hillary The exhibition was short-lived—lasting only three days—but after being mobbed by press on day one, its p... [more]

Posted 7/17/14

As I left for the infamous Amertec building in Hialeah—a twenty-minute drive from Miami—worrying about the coming rain, a friend warned me: “Check first, the weather’s different there.” Designed by Chayo Frank in 1969, when he was fresh out of the University of Oklahoma’s College of Architecture, the building is a curvy, organelle-shaped, surreally tropical structure. Depending on one’s perspective, it’s a futurist masterpiece or bizarre opus, a work of u... [more]

Stones without Moss: Ken Price at Matthew Marks   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Ken Price at Matthew Marks Gallery - 526 W. 22nd St. May 9th, 2014 - June 28th, 2014
Posted 5/20/14

Ken Price passed away weeks before his first retrospective opened at Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2012. Last year, it travelled to the Metropolitan Museum, while a show of his works on paper opened at Drawing Center. For New York, the two exhibitions were an overdue exposure. Price didn’t fit neatly into its narrative of contemporary art: his sculptures are concerned with the materiality of surfaces, color (bright ones!), shape (both organic and geometric), the play of light, and a wh...

ArtSlant editors Natalie Hegert, Joel Kuennen, and Charlie Schultz met up at Agra, an Indian restaurant on Lexington Avenue, to discuss the opening of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, its surprises, best in show, and disappointments. They touch on trends and themes of scale, archives, lists, dongs, and objectness—parsing the line between artwork and artifact. Charlie Schultz: I guess I’ll start by saying I found this year’s iteration of the [Whitney] Biennial to be far less crowded than in... [more]
