WOMEN PORTRAYED IN ART  
by
4/14/15 Posted 4/14/15

What is unfortunate is that the women portrayed in art are generally painted by men, aman’s view of the woman's experience. Men tend to see women always in relation tothemselves, a kind of aura women give off that they then relate to. And unfortunatelywomen have tended to succumb to this view and play into it. A man's presence isdependant on the power he appears to have. It suggests what he is capable of doing to orfor you. And it is this presence that defines men as men. A woman however give... [more]

中国近现代书画与当代艺术的较量  
by
4/13/15 Posted 4/13/15

中国近现代书画与当代艺术的较量 中国、印度、阿拉伯产油国等富裕阶层的资金,大量流入当代艺术市场,会逐渐改变艺术市场的未来走向。但根本是短视近利的暴利主义,令人忧心忡忡。以往,历史悠久的拍卖公司只处理已经确立一定评价的艺术家作品。美术基准确立于欧美,即使是亚洲作品,也都并列在同一衡量天平上,进行评价。因此,买家也深深信赖拍卖公司。但拍卖公司毕竟属于"唯利是图"的商业机构,面对凶猛的钱潮不可能心如止水,于是因应市场需求,越来越频繁的仅限亚洲当代艺术作品的拍卖会纷纷举办,而且深受国际性的欢迎。销售市场制度一旦瓦解,就无法打造健全基础的市场,而流于只是以金钱交易艺术的世界。如此一来,艺术市场将无法无天,导致泡沫经济迅速瓦解,作品价格急剧跌落。最后遭殃的将会是艺术家、画廊、收藏家、投资者等,无一幸免。 中国近代书画新水墨成为新的增长点。近现代书画的规模十倍于当代艺术。水墨画在今日的盛景和乱象, 从实验水墨到现代水墨到水墨画, 从传统到现代,从文人画到中国画到水墨画,无“水墨”不“书画”,水墨画的实践和理论,都在急遽地发展。但很少有拍卖行单...

Yuan Chu Chen 陈源初 我在 故我思

Yuan Chu Chen 陈源初 我在 故我思 怀疑就是出发点,感官知觉的知识是可以被怀疑的,不能信任我们的感官,不是“我看故我在”、“我听故我 在”,而是:“我思,故我在” Cogito ergo sum。理所当然或习以为常的事情,值得我疑惑, 我是一个独立于肉体的思维。我是一种二元的存在物,我有肉体,我也有思想。我的画也是二元的,有表层,有内在。我的画在画前,画时,画后需要思考,观看我的画时更需要思考,需要提出问题。 我常常是用单一的色彩表现灰暗的白昼和灰沙的夜晚,希望借此体察自己的知识、能力、素质。培养自我素质。也许这样做是徒劳的,但只有的创新才能提供宽阔的环境生态基础知识平台和广阔的创新思维空 间。我们会发现人生,社会,艺术是需要不断重新认识和怀疑的!没有一成不变的标准的存在或是固定的论断,无论它是多么地客观存在的,是多么地不容置疑的! 然而对于艺术这一以非理性为主同时又融合汇聚了理性因素内在的综合活动,充分调动、挖掘,展现了人类主观情感、认识、抉择的范畴,在其标准的界定上是存在 模糊性的。然而酝酿着天明的星宿意境正在相辉映,清晨的曦光已经显...

当代艺术的做局与迷局  
by
4/12/15 Posted 4/12/15

当代艺术的做局与迷局 当代艺术实际上已经披上了一层光环,这两年加入了不少新兴群体。职业有挖煤的、做金融证券的、房地产商、广告商、媒体投资人、开连锁饭店的、游戏公司老板、银行家、古玩商;专业有学英语的、学哲学的、学管理的、学财务的,甚至学数理化、医学、数学的;从社会成分看有高干子弟、党政官员、财富大鳄,甚至还有国家级的文化和社会机构,比如慈善总会、市文化发展基金会等。当代艺术这两年的人群构成,其实也早已不是八五新潮或者1990年代在边缘奋斗挣扎的那批人了,可能还有一些骨干或成功者在局里,但新加入的人群占总人口的70%。“皇帝新衣”欧洲有先例,目前当代艺术使人脑子转不过弯由此而带来的困惑之处主要在两个方面:一是原来一些三四流艺术家、行画家以及文学、地产、时尚界混的人士近来纷纷以当代艺术的名义“胡搞”,尽管他们也使用了装置、行为、摄影和“Video”形式。艺术圈已经不以装置、行为、摄影和Video划线判断前卫还是后卫了,但是圈外人包括媒体记者还刚开始对观念摄影、装置和Video报以敬仰之心,他们就困惑“前卫艺术”原来是这样的吗?比如弄一千个“红衣主教”唱国际歌。二是不少在八五新潮或者九十年代初确实有过杰出表现的优秀艺术家,这两年在受媒体追捧或市场追逐下,也在搞“皇帝新衣”似的作品,或者成批制作劣质绘画。这种“优秀艺术家搞劣质作品”的现象不要说使圈外人脑筋转不过来,连我这样的职业策展人和批评家也才刚刚确认这事是存在的。但是一般善良和真诚热爱艺术的人短期内是很难将这个人以前的耀眼成绩跟当下的“劣质作品”在逻辑上串起来的,于是大家初步的反应还是先去敬畏,这也使得这些大腕更加有恃无恐地成批制作,一跃成为亿万富豪。体积在膨胀,想象力却在缩水——这是“奇观艺术”的黄金时代,“宏大”与“民主”、“群众”、“用户友好”、“品牌效应”紧紧联系在了一起。没有哪家博物馆会反对“宏大”的概念化与去感性化,更不用提那些从金融危机中幸存下来的经销商们。于是乎,炒作成为惯用的伎俩,有了经销商的妙手回春,就连最琐碎最乏味的作品亦可登上大雅之堂。无可否认,当代艺术是一个举步维艰的大块头,或者说是大型艺术博览会、明星博物馆和超级经销商手中的牵线木偶。以小搏大需要非同一般的勇气,然而,每个时代都应直面自己的艺术挑战,超越宏大主义正是当代艺术家所要面对的最大挑战之一。 当代艺术这盘迷局到底如何理解?怎么看待中国当代艺术在国际上的地位,怎么看待各种以当代艺术名义的“皇帝的新衣”的行为,怎么看待大腕明星始终没有进步甚至在退步的作品价格却在节节上升? “天价”拍品重出江湖,让本来就饱受争议的当代艺术市场再起波澜,关于这次拍卖“黑幕”、“炒作”、“做局”的各种揣测也纷纷从网上流出。“天价”背后究竟隐藏着怎样的市场信息?“天价”拍品的出现是否能为调整中的拍卖市场带来触底反...

“No theme requires more pure logic than love.” —Alain Badiou, What is Love. At the Georgia Fee Writers Residencythis spring in Paris, Himali Singh Soin will utilize the romantic clichés of Paris to excavate its less probable, scientific desires. From 18th century follies in Parc Monceau and Bois de Vincennes to 20th century follies in Le Parc de la Villette to modern buildings like Le Grand Arch to Gargoyles and mere street side ornaments, her lines will be made of hype...

Artistes riches,art pauvre. Le but de la véritable création est de nourrir l’âme, de forger la réflexion, d’élever le niveau de conscience de l'homme afin qu'il accède progressivement à la vérité qui le rendra véritablement Libre.Ceux qui contrôlent l'art choisissent et valorisent des "artistes" sans danger, c'est-à-dire incapable de créer des œuvres d'art utile à l'humain.
