20121012193126-wodiczko_lincoln_war_veteran_projection This is best installation in public parks ever!  
by
Krzysztof Wodiczko at Galerie Lelong November 8th, 2012 - November 8th, 2012
Posted 11/20/12

Krzysztof Wodiczko's Abraham Lincoln: War Veteran Projection is the best public space installation in 2012, this is a must see! You can get a few minutes of a quick documentation at https://vimeo.com/53446621 but I suggest viewing the installation live. Like all of Wodiczko's work, this installation is politically charged, moving and mesmerizing. The brilliance is behind the images of 14 war veternas from Vietnam, Afganistan and Iraq, projected  onto the cold bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln. As... [more]

you are in brooklyn, no, not that brooklyn. we are talking about the real brooklyn that you can never fully know. concrete, cars, people, and places form an abstract pattern of unruly democracy. like an islamic tile if such a thing could be ugly. in this brooklyn, in a tiny garage, reside monumental pictures of otherwise imperceptible details. you are also in gilgo beach and it's bright. you are also alice, but you are not in wonderland. you have not grown small but the impressions you are confronted wi...

by
Nick Kline at Open Source Gallery September 8th, 2012 - October 4th, 2012
Posted 9/24/12

           Over the past fifteen years, the “Ocean Parkway Serial Killer” targeted sex workers along this stretch of roadway, ultimately burying them at Gilgo Beach.  It is this series of events that Nick Kline examines in his exhibit, Gilgo Beach.  In a sterilized, clinical gallery space, the track lighting of a traditional gallery replaced with fluorescents, floor covered in stains that contrast the whiteness of the walls, Kline’s detailed, large-scale photographs create the air of a laborat...

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 much an artist ma...

(Image: Guy Nelson, Sum of its Parts, 2010, Wood, Polyurethane Rubber, Gum Balls, 22" x 43" x 24"; © Guy Nelson) Guy Nelson (b. 1977, Fargo, ND) I am interested in anthropological and natural structures that examine conflicts, continuation, and acts of survival. I explore the aposematic phenomena of warning coloration, mutualism, mimicry, self-preservation, genetically modified organisms, and decomposition. My material choices are specifically selected natural elements and polymers. Educati... [more]

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 Pow... [more]
