In Ryan Mendoza’s Detroit House, Debris of a Financial Collapse Turns into Relief Aid  
by
Ryan Mendoza at Art Rotterdam 2/10/16 Posted 2/8/16

Is it a sculpture? A political indictment? A social activist gesture? Or maybe some form of contemporary historiography? It’s not really clear how to define or classify Ryan Mendoza’s Detroit House. One thing’s for sure, though: it’s not a house. You could easily be fooled into thinking it is. It’s got a roof, walls, a porch, windows, and a door you can enter through. It lacks, however, neighbors, a path or driveway leading up to it, a connection to the local power grid, a foundat... [more]

Editors' Picks: Art Los Angeles Contemporary 2016   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Art Los Angeles Contemporary opens this week—arguably the West Coast's key commercial event for the year, especially for local galleries who feature heavily in the line-up. Looking at artwork in an art fair can be a bit like viewing art on the internet: the structure often strips work of its full effect. To remedy the fatigue of serial image consumption—and give more credit to the artists, looking past their works' obvious marketability and apparent aesthetic trends—we're giving you so... [more]

Art Los Angeles Contemporary opens this week—arguably the West Coast's key commercial event for the year, especially for local galleries who feature heavily in the line-up. We realized recently when discussing the way fairs are set up, that, a bit like viewing art on the internet, the structure often strips work of its full purpose. To remedy the fatigue of serial image consumption—and give more credit to the artists, looking past the obvious marketability and the apparent aesthetic... [more]

Miami Art Week Guide, Part I: Art Fairs Aplenty   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 11/30/15

It’s impossible to keep a Miami Art Week guide “concise.” The number of fairs alone—at last count 21, más o menos—will make any list scroll on and on. So we're not even trying. Instead, we’re splitting our guide into two: one for fairs and one for everything else. This guide will get you acquainted with the city’s seasonal guests: those itinerant behemoths that turn up and transform the town for one week out of the year. Unless you’re a masochis... [more]

Top Insiders' Tips to Getting into Miami Art Week Parties Without an Invite   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

As the glitterati descend upon Florida’s art capital, we'd love to think Art Basel Miami Beach is more than just exclusive parties for rich people in fancy hotels, but the happenings around the fair don't always dissuade this interpretation. This epic art world extravaganza has seen Miley Cyrus decked out in butterfly wings, Amanda Lepore blowing puffy red kisses, and Jay-Z casually perusing the fair's booths. This is where artists swim in the pool drunk with curators who, in turn, run arou... [more]

To ‘shine’ means to shine upon something, to make that upon which the light falls appear. —Hans Georg Gadamer Almost every artwork needs a spectator, and artists need a platform to connect their work with those viewers. While today these platforms vary, artists still need spaces—be it the conventional gallery or the digital realm—that are able to reach and mobilize a broad audience. Galleries still matter: they not only provide artists with a means f... [more]

Contemporary Tehran: Istanbul's Iranian Gallery Focus Shows an Art Scene on the Rise   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Following high-powered political negotiations, Iran recently expanded its 30-day visa upon arrival program to include citizens of a number of European, Asian, and Middle Eastern nations—including France, Germany, and Singapore, all with a concentration of high-end galleries and collectors. The new policy has already resulted in an increase in “cultural tourists,” and a boom in the art tourism industry seems an inevitability. “I can say 70 percent of my collectors are lo... [more]

With its annual Hors Les Murs programming, FIAC is once more transforming Paris into a tableau vivant with art spread citywide, well beyond the glass domes of the Grand Palais. Here you’ll find a suggested promenade replete with the best artful stops outside the fair’s walls. Follow my itinerary, or in the true spirit of Baudelaire’s flâneur, go ahead and wander, get lost, and see what you find—you’re sure to stumble upon some art! Dan Graham, Passa... [more]

Can an Art Fair Actually Transform a City? In Paris, Yes   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 10/20/15

It’s kind of an obvious thing to say that Paris is different from London and New York, and no doubt many other cities that I haven’t had the opportunity to visit or live in, but still it is. Specifically this is in the sense that it isn’t—no matter what any Parisien will tell you—a huge, teaming, hyper-megapolis. It’s actually a small and crowded city of only two million inhabitants (yes, in cultural terms the banlieue is only beginning to maybe exist [see “... [more]

We love a big city art week because it's like taking your mind to a theme park. If ever there's a time for critical thinkers to kick back and allow themselves to not take things too seriously, it's Frieze Week. From your relegated position at the bottom of the art hierarchy, you laugh as the art PR attempt to placate the elite with the deftness of a headless chicken. Meanwhile, artists pretend to be sociable creatures and woo museum people and curators do their best impression of being unpretenti... [more]

In its fourth edition, EXPO Chicago has shown considerable institutional growth, adding new programs and publications, and expanding from 125 galleries in 2012 to 140 from 16 countries in 2015. A few months ago, signs promoting the fair popped up all around the city, boosting expectations for art lovers. Although EXPO is open to the public for just three days, the week of September 14-20—now referred as the EXPO Art Week—is one of the Chicago art scene’s busiest times of the y... [more]

As Chicago's biggest art week builds to a crescendo, many of the best talks and events are still to come over this weekend. EXPO is marking itself out for its genuine interest in connecting what the commercial art fair does with conversations happening in parallel. While many fairs attempt to do this, EXPO has panel discussions with broad, understandable topics that open out to design, fashion, and commerce, reflecting more realistically the complexion of the art world, its influences—and its conflict...

Europe's refugee crisis has reached political and humanitarian extremes this year, with an unprecedented number of asylum seekers—many fleeing conflicts in the Middle East and Africa—risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean. Across the continent a social and political atmosphere fueled by racism, xenophobia, fiscal conservatism and austerity has given rise to a radical disconnect between many Europeans and their southern neighbors. Horrifically, Greek Isle holidaymakers have been heard complaining about vacationi... [more]
