When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sound of silence.
The history of art could be summed up as the visualization of what cannot be visualized. It is a history of ideas, a tracing of cultures and societal considerations recorded in unique objects and images, that exist purely as a record of those concerns. The expanding fields of contemporary art, that push the boundaries of what was originally determined ‘fine art’ has broadened the... [more]

Ellen Pearlman reviews “Old Becomes the New: New York Contemporary Native American Art Movement and The New York School” on HYPERALLERGIC blog
After a visit to the wonderland of forms that’s Parul Thacker’s first solo at Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke, the whole process of meaning-making ( of contemporary art) is bound to come under fresh scrutiny.
All the available texts on the artist and her works, struggle to put her into a context, and visibly strain to find a broader theme beyond the striking yet enigmatic forms. And it’s not hard to see why. Her background is unconventional (Bachelor’s in textile design at Sophia Polytechnic Mumbai, then a ... [more]
I grew up in a house full of art with my sisters Maryann and Kathleen and my dad. We would spend days helping our dad on art projects like helping paint large door size folk art paintings, and freezing as we painted the Bingo sign for our local church. Art was always around and I never thought anything of it until I got older and realized our family was a bit different. My mom is gone now and curating the Mom Show is a little bit of art I can share with the world and to help other people with... [more]
O the sleeping bag contains the body but not the dreaming head on show at the Altman Siegel Gallery from April 18th to June 1st, features work by three artists; Alice Channer, Aaron Flint Jamison and Anicke Yi. The title is taken from a poem by Matthea Harvey, a dark meditation on containment, or it’s failure. This is the theme that unites the three artists, whose work at first seems unconnected in medium and subject.
Alice Channer’s Body Fluids is the first to confront me as I enter the gallery- a large digital print that is draped over a steel bar hung n... [more]

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE: ART BRUSSELS 2013
By Andrea Alessi
Planning a trip to art fairs – plural because, let’s face it, where one art fair goes, others are sure to follow – is an exercise in strategic thinking. Tactical decisions balance hopes, dreams, and opportunity costs, and every choice you make could lead you to find, or miss, the best deal, most worthwhile elbow-greasing, sickest party, most enlightening roundtable, or tastiest canapé.
The simultaneity of fairs and events within a... [more]

Kiran Subbaiah wanted to kill himself in Suicide Note (2006) because that’s the way truly famous people rolled, according to him. While viewing Narcissicon (2012), it seemed that he had made a miserable botch of a suicide. Because this time, his selves have multiplied, taken up residence together and freely borrow clothes from each other, get into scuffles, stabbings and passive-aggressive arguments.
Kiran Subbaiah, a contemporary artist based in Bengaluru has been delighting and provoking us with his conceptual scu... [more]
