Outside, the frigid night air pounced on him, slipping its icy tendrils through the loose seams of his coat and chilling him to the bone. Already he could feel stiffness settling into his joints, and the pain that lay dormant in in his knees and hips coming alive, awakened by the cold. It would be a long, achy night, but he’d never let that stop him before. Defiantly, the old man yanked the flaps of his furry Russian-style hat further do... [more]

I have been travelling and travelling, following the light from sunrise to sunset. We arrived in Panama a month ago. The air here is so warm and humid it is almost unbearable. Even the water at dinner feels too thick to drink. And there are mosquitoes everywhere. Sucking and pulling at the skin- it’s horrible. Mosquitoes must be the most insat... [more]

Length of the conference: Since you are not aware about the duration of the conference so being a professional conf... [more]
Art and the Environment in East-Central Europe is an editorial project born from interviews and other forms of interaction with artists and cultural producers concerned, in one way or another, with the idea and the material reality of what goes by the name of the "natural environment." In the different pieces collected within this project, the term "environment" unfolds into a broad variety of concepts and artistic practices that do not, and should not, become homogenized. A survey rather than... [more]

Emilyi Mast, ENDE, at Night Gallery
The large garage door swung open, and crowds of hiply dressed people, Tecates in hand, swarmed into Los Angeles’ Night Gallery to witness Emily Mast’s performance ENDE, last Saturday. The crowds were met by an array of props, hanging lights, tape on the floor demarcating the performance space, and Emily holding a microphone; dressed in beige corduroys and a brown t-shirt.
The crowd settled into place around the... [more]

Posted by Omo Misha on 8/25 | View the full blog list HEREBryan Christie's new work is a walk through a dimly lit dream. Biomorphic shapes, drenched and floating, appear more necessary than aesthetic. Yet, there is a subtle beauty about each image - haunting, unsettling and almost archaic. Perhaps you are drawn by Christie’s use of mysterious hues; or grasping at something academic, hovering just above your intelligence. Whatever it may be, your inquiry continues until you have at last unearthe... [more]

A scientist searching for sleep and privacy, taken from The Poles.
Rarely Left Alone

WHO REALLY RUNS—and most profits from—the current art system? Not 99% of artists and not 99% of the general public, now forced to pay ever-escalating museum admission fees to gaze at contemporary artworks they could never afford. Such hip luxuries are sold to the richest 1% in galleries that many ordinary people find too intimidating to enter. And it’s no secret that the moguls who sit on museum boards ar... [more]
