A collection of 15 paintings themed as "the bewilderments of Vincent" by Iranian artist Parisa Sahafi-Asl is to be held at Shalman Art Gallery in Tehran.
The motif of the exhibition is inspired and oriented around 15 of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings depicting the unpleasant contrast between conditions and ideals of the time Van Gogh lived and the 21st century.
According to the artist, the artworks would distinctly criticize the actual realities of the present day such as anger, infringe... [more]

July 13th - July 13th
We are thrilled to announce the final selected photographers of the Fifth Annual Exposure Award. There is a thing one does when presented with a work of extraordinary beauty. We lean in. We peer deep into the details, attempting to consume, or at least understand the workings of a mind that produces such a clear vision.
This has been our response to the work of Gabriela Torres Ruiz.
Her series of diptychs are intended to suggest a theme of silence. The work evokes both silence and meditation,... [more]
Art or Not? Do you ever get the feeling when you enter a gallery, that you just don't get it? Sometimes it seems that the art world is a big ruse, making the most of that fear of the equivocal. Every week, we invite you to turn your ironic eye on art and identify the accidental imposter of the two images below—you might be surprised.
This week, abstract stains: which of the below is a work by a world famous artist?
...one of the pioneers of the post-Abstraction-Creation movement i... [more]
Jack Kerouac wrote in the introduction of Robert Frank’s paradigm-shattering book ‘The Americans’ that Frank sucked a sad poem right out of America onto film; if this is true then I would argue that Garry Winogrand pulled, cajoled and yes, sucked a sad epic poem right out of America with the excess of a film-junkie. This sadness is not only evident in many of his pictures but it also belies his ebullient, brash and often abrasive public image. The full 1977 video recording fro... [more]
Ebullient, cantankerous, evasive, dogmatic, confrontational, a walking contradiction; Garry Winogrand was all of this and more, that’s if I believe the reviews, essays and YouTube videos. The photographer’s public persona was not an easy one to try to engage with if you were a student, interviewer or even a friend. I guess if I met him I would, after the inevitable short confrontational encounter, ask him to get the hell out of the room but I would ask him to leave his pictures behind.... [more]
We're huge Ólafur Eliasson fans at ArtSlant. His sensitivity to site-specificity and deft hand at magical transformation through the merging of science and art is unique to say the least. Eliasson was tapped by the Louis Vuitton Foundation and their curatorial team lead by Suzanne Pagé to inaugurate Paris' newest museum designed by starchitect, Frank Gehry.
Eliasson's installation Inside the Horizon—a series of mirrored, yellow columns—will also be permanently fe... [more]

An Out Of Sight (But Not Out Of Mind) Conversation Between Olivier Millagou and Gabriela Jauregui.
Gabriela Jauregui: First off, could you tell me more about exhibition title? There is a nice play on words: Out Of Sight can mean that which is, literally, hidden from sight—in this case the darker side of the sunny Beach Boys legacy, and the darkness of the gallery space itself—and it can also mean out of sight as in something amazing, surprising, unbelievable, which can be ‘seen&rsquo...

Let us say once again, after a few others, that Maude Maris makes objects, that she moulds them, and then places the shapes she has cast into small boxes, models that are open on one side, that she then, under given lighting conditions, takes photographs of her compositions, and that it is finally from these photographs that she paints her paintings.
Maude Maris’s paintings thus undergo a process or, rather, the implementing of a setup which may recall Giorgio Morandi’s. We can su... [more]

With visitors likening their works to James Turrell and Dan Flavin, these three artists clearly set Atelier Davidseck aglow with their own interpretations of light filled spaces.
In two days, nearly 100 visitors engaged the artists in an... [more]
