MFA Watchlist Artist: Nobutaka Aozaki  
by
5/31/12 Posted 5/31/12

(Image: Nobutaka Aozaki, Names on Starbucks Cups; © Nobutaka Aozaki) Nobutaka Aozaki (b. 1977, Kagoshima, Japan) My work is often made or activated by other people. This method questions the dichotomy, as well as creates an opportunity for a covert exchange between what is considered artistic and non-artistic labor. By making with others I also seek to complicate the notion of authorship, and escape the solid identity of a mere author of an artwork. I am interested in the tension between how mu... [more]

Tom Estes at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum April 1st, 2012 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Posted 4/19/12

Artist Tom Estes, enters the realm of Loonytune physics to create a successful science and pop-media crossover, making a ‘Portable Black Hole’ from the darkest material ever made. The carpet of carbon nano- tubes reflects 0.045 percent light, making it 100 times darker than a black-painted Corvette according to researchers from  Rice University, The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and NASA. Remember the Road Runner Show? Simple in its premise, the Road Runner, a flightless cartoon bird (loosely based on a real bird, the Greater Roadrunner), is chased down the highways of the Southwester... [more]

"Loft in The Red Zone" Review  By Jill Smith   The scene of the crime is littered with dusty footprints, several lines of police tape bar entrance into enclaves, and hot, red halogen lights brighten an otherwise dim room.  These are just a few of the austere settings in a gripping exhibition on Wall Street entitled “Loft In The Red Zone.”   The brainchild of artist and curator, Marika Maiorova, the exhibition came about as a personal response to the remains of her lofted downtown studio after 9...

(Image: Rico Gatson, Nigeria Power, 2009; © Rico Gatson / Photo by Hermann Feldhaus) Rico Gatson (b. 1966, Augusta, Georgia, USA) Rico Gatson treats the notion of identity the way Ed Ruscha treats text in his “liquid word” series: Gatson stretches and skews the issue until meaning strains at the end of its logical tether. Gatson combines source materials and reference points from America’s racial history in a kaleidoscopic array ranging from almost abstract to overtly political. In Nigeria P... [more]

 (Image: Diana Santiago, Charli pulling out her curlers, 2008, charcoal on paper, 24 x 36 in.; © Diana Santiago) Through the fluctuating mixed media of drawing, painting, installation and photography I create art that retains a cultural translation of experience and sentiment. Visions of perpetuated femininity and the distorted social roles of the modern woman. A series of multifaceted and contradictory autobiographies played out by various characters. I grew up on the lower east side... [more]
