ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

Here, Listen: Allora & Calzadilla: Intervals   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Allora & Calzadilla at Philadelphia Museum of Art December 12th - April 5th, 2015
Posted 12/12/14

“Intervals revels in the unknowable as essential to human experience. The exhibition bears witness to incomplete presences and resonant remainders. It finds in music a measure and a reckoning with these elusive forces and the abyss that lies between.” —Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla Gesamtkunstwerk, as German-defined, is a work that sums all arts—aural, visual, and performative—to total a perfect affective state. No other word seems capable of describing... [more]

The Man at Ululation: Bob Cobbing   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Bob Cobbing at CHELSEA space November 19th - December 19th
Posted 12/10/14

On the wall of the gallery space at Chelsea College of Arts there is a screen on which a monochrome film plays out. It’s a transfer from an old tape marked at the edges with braided lines, strange interference artifacts of spooling marks in stark black and white framing the scene. The image of a room looks smoky, misty, colloidal, but that’s just the video. A man with a tight buzz cut stoops over a fire bucket, poised, an end-blown flute to his mouth, using the opening and the movement... [more]

Alternative Waters: a Personal View of Recent Macri Portraits by Kenneth Radu  
by
12/6/14 Posted 12/6/14

Part I People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]

Collective Delusions Bad and Good: Art Basel Day 2   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 12/5/14

The increase in events, exhibitions, one-offs, happenings, parties, cultural gatherings, informal mixers, themed bashes and networking raves is about 1,000% compared to non-Art Basel time in Miami (which is what we call it. Not “Art Basel Miami Beach,” or “Art Basel Miami”—just “Art Basel,” or even more often, and funnily enough, most everyone truncates it to just “Basel,” har har), scientifically speaking, so right around now everyone involved...

Pedro Reyes at Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami December 3rd - March 15th, 2015
Posted 12/3/14

The Institute of Contemporary Art hosted its inaugural show last night to a fanfare of eager art world denizens. Following its staff's departure from the now defunct Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, the ICA is now open in its temporary home in Design District’s landmark Moore Building. The edifice, built in the 1920s by the Moore Furniture Company, has been operating as a pop-up event space for some time and is for now serving as the location for the city's newest contemporary art muse...

MY NEW WORK ON A TABLE: COLLAGE MADE WITH 1.258 PIECES OF WASTE-PAPER FROM TORN OUTDOOR ADS  
by
11/30/14 Posted 11/30/14

This is my new work for “Lacer/actions” project. It’s a collage made on a table using 1.258 waste-paper pieces of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings. I gathered every single paper pieces along the streets, after the old publicity posters were torn down from the billboards. I titled it : "The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)". It covers a wood table; sizes: cms 108 x 51. I think images speak better than words… So I created a videoclip I posted on Yo... [more]

Art or Not?

11/19/14 Posted 11/19/14

Art or Not? One of the pictures described below is a genuine art work: every Friday the ArtSlant team asks our discerning readers to indulge in a game of spot the difference. The answer is revealed below. This week's theme is: playing with rope. #1 The artist's "performances with rope" forged a body of work conducted in experimental arts spaces in New York and Chicago throughout the 90s. Ancient art forms of rope typing from the East such as Shinbari and Hojojutsu bear a strong influence on the erotic charg... [more]

Visions from the Present Future: Artissima's Top Emerging Artists   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
at Artissima November 7th - November 9th
Posted 11/6/14

Now entering its 14th year, Artissima’s Present Future is an acknowledged launch pad for the careers of emerging young talent. Indeed, internationally renowned artists such as Dora García, Jeremy Deller, Ryan Trecartin, and Phil Collins all had early presentations in this section of the fair. This year, 20 artists have been selected by a team of five international curators: Luigi Fassi, Catalina Lozano, Piper Marshall, Jamie Stevens, and Xiaoyu Weng. Each curator’s distinctive aesthetic... [more]

A Cool, Darkling Swirl: Benjamin Millepied’s LA Dance Works at the Ace   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 10/28/14

What literature is to words and music is to sound, dance is to movement. Refined into a language—from the cosmic shimmy to the mash-potato, Viennese waltzing to a raver’s speaker humping, and of course, that formal staging from ballet to music videos we call simply Dance—we take movement and communicate joy or boredom, despair or titillation, or if good, all of the above. Seeing the LA Dance Project last weekend at the Ace in Los Angeles, it was hard not to find the whole affair intensely beautiful. Stylized as hell, drawi... [more]

What Really Shocks Us About Petr Pavlensky's Self-Mutilation?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 10/28/14

In a climate where the state is using psychiatric evaluation as a way to silence the politically inconvenient, it was only a matter of time before the Russian artist and political activist Petr Pavlensky, previously known for sewing his mouth shut, would offer up his own visceral brand of commentary. On Saturday October 18, in below freezing temperatures, Pavlensky climbed naked onto the wall of Moscow’s Serbsky Center for psychiatry, where after cutting off his left earlobe, he remained...

Joan Jonas Knows How to Make Performance Art That Endures   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Joan Jonas at HangarBicocca Foundation October 2nd - February 1st, 2015
Posted 10/26/14

Time is the one thing we can all agree to call supernatural. It is at least neither energy nor matter… and yet it is the beginning and end of the creation of the world. Joan Jonas concluded her performance at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan with these words from Under the Glacier (1968), a little known, visionary novel by the Icelandic writer Halldór Laxness. The acclaimed New York video and performance artist looked like a Lilliputian creature, an aged little fairy; her snow-whit... [more]

It's (OFF)icelle: FIAC Is Cool   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
at FIAC October 22nd - October 26th
Posted 10/23/14

There's something new happening at FIAC this year. Not exactly the quickest to catch on to a trend, the Parisian art fair has created its own satellite, with a focus on introducing new art and artists from the international scene through a showcase of 68 galleries from 14 countries. Judged by a selection panel of art historians and curators, the tangential fair's emphasis is on supporting the underdog—not only the up-and-comings, but also "outsiders" and artists who have been overlooked h...

Why Patti Loves Paris and Paris Loves Patti   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 10/23/14

Patti loves Paris and Paris loves Patti, and the question that I’d ask is why? Now right at the beginning, up front, I need to make a few things clear. First, let me state that this relates to our FIAC coverage because Patti is performing at the most sought after, and possibly the only gig to feature as part of the FIAC programme. It's a reunion with John Cale, on Thursday night, at Fondation Cartier. Since this hardly seems sufficient to qualify my bold assertion I’ll also add th... [more]

The Language of Power: A Hotel Lobby Conversation with Rashaad Newsome

10/21/14 Posted 10/21/14

Graz, Austria, Sept. 2014: Rashaad Newsome’s heart pulses to the beat of hip hop. But how can one replace chamber music with old school black vernacular? New York-based Newsome, who is originally from New Orleans, travels the world finding the attitude-drenched insider lingo of each city, weaving it into his compositions for an unforgettable performance piece called Shade Compositions. Newsome came into the spotlight in 2010 in collaboration with Alexander Wang at MoMA PS1 and is known f... [more]

30 Years of The Turner Prize: 10 Most Notorious Entries  
by
Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips, James Richards, Tris Vonna-Michell at Tate Britain 10/19/14 Posted 10/19/14

It's Turner Prize time again. Britain’s most hated art award celebrates its 30th year this year. What has it achieved in over three decades? For one thing – its brought contemporary British art to the public attention – mostly to be lampooned by the tabloids. Who can forget headlines surrounding Tracey Emin’s winning entry My Bed (dubbed ‘My Turd’ by Private Eye) or the fury roused by Damien Hirst’s formaldehyde tiger shark entry in 1992? The “national joke” has provoked walk outs and protests (the Stuckist... [more]
