Closing the Loop: Does Art Require an Audience?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Does art require an audience? Does art require an audience? I posed this question to a dozen artists over nine episodes of Working (it) Out, the ArtSlant podcast I began hosting this summer. It was a question that came up at the end of a master’s seminar class I was in last year, and it took me by surprise. My answer, which I assumed was really the only one, was “yes.” Yes, I thought, because without an audience, does it count as art? I went home and put the question to my partner... [more]

The Latham Loop: Maintaining a Clean and Healthy Image for 120 Years   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Never forget the loop The first time I encountered the loop was whilst using a Chinon Super 8 projector manufactured in the late 70s. Within seconds of my roll of Kodachrome entering the “auto-loading” machine the projected image began to jitter and convulse. After several further attempts the film buckled, broke, and bunched up in the gate where it was toasted by the searing hot halogen lamp. The instruction booklet explained that although the film lacing process was totally automat... [more]

Jared Madere at Whitney Museum of American Art October 16th, 2015 - January 3rd
Posted 11/16/15

Jared Madere’s untitled installation, currently on view at the Whitney, is versatile. It might rest equally comfortably in an abandoned lot in Bushwick or on top of a mountain in Nepal. It’s hard to tell, though, whether the work is happy in its current environment, the John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Gallery on the first floor. Curated by Christopher Y. Lew, who was recently named co-curator of the 2017 Whitney Biennial with Mia Locks, this is Madere’s first solo exhibition as well a... [more]

For Maize Mantis at The Kitchen this past October, Sergei Tcherepnin created an amalgam of dance performance, musical composition, and theatre. In this project drawing partly from Sergei Diaghilev’s production of Feu d’Artifice and incorporating paintings by Lucy Dodd and Kerstin Brätsch, the audience witnessed a host of characters—including wolves, jellyfish, and basketball players—whimsically navigate a landscape of light and sound. At the sonic height of the work... [more]

Artists' Desks   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

What goes on behind the closed doors of the artists' studio has always fascinated the layperson. What do they do in there? Creative spaces appeal to our aesthetic imagination—they're often laden with eclectic objects, designed to benefit the artist's productivity. Psychologically, the interior architecture of the studio is perhaps assumed to be a reflection of the artist's thinking. But in the post-industrial economy, the spaces artists work in have had to change and adapt to a more migrat... [more]

Obama as Contemporary Art Connoisseur   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

As the White House diversified in occupancy, so did the objects on its walls. Under President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House the distinct image of realistic portraiture and ethereal landscapes of Midwestern plains that have long hung on its walls have been replaced by more contemporary artists like Glenn Ligon, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jasper Johns. The Ligon contribution, a piece entitled Black Like Me, No. 2 (1992) (top), is composed of black words fit ever more snugly as they desc... [more]

I last felt this way when reading Ada by Nabokov. The pitch of amorous Baroque satire is about the same. Nabokov’s delicious novel traces a lifelong affair between a brother and sister (beginning with him aged fourteen, her eleven), under the pretense that they mistakenly think themselves cousins. It is set in the late nineteenth century, at their families’ summer home, in a place resembling the South of France. Opening in time for FIAC in Paris, Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson&... [more]
