"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 “s... [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, sociological...

.........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 c... [more]

Adel Gorgy builds on the work he presented in his solo e... [more]
We're huge Ólafur Eliasson fans at ArtSlant. His sensitivity to site-specificity and deft hand at magical transformation through the merging of science and art is unique to say the least. Eliasson was tapped by the Louis Vuitton Foundation and their curatorial team lead by Suzanne Pagé to inaugurate Paris' newest museum designed by starchitect, Frank Gehry.
Eliasson's installation Inside the Horizon—a series of mirrored, yellow columns—will also be permanently fe... [more]

"It takes a true artist to create jaw-dropping art from cut up paper."
Mungo Thompson fancies himself clever. He thinks that public affirmations of private struggle are curious, and can’t wrap his pretty little middle class head around the idea that they might be empowering.
He likes Bruce Nauman’s neon spiral form… he likes the idea that it takes up a commercial vehicle to advertise non-commodity slogan. He thought it would be cute to rifle through self-help books and AA 12-step guides, pick out phrases, and pay somebody to fabricate neon spiral aff... [more]

Acts of drawing are sometimes summed up as dirtying the paper delicately,1 but Ayesha Sultana’s drawings in Outside the field of view, her first solo at Experimenter, Kolkata, mounted from the 9th of May to the 26th of June, are anything but delicate. Sultana ‘dirties’ the paper vigorously and obsessively, while reining in her mark-marking within perfectly geometric shapes. Nine graphite drawings of various si... [more]
