Marsden Hartley at LACMA - Los Angeles County Museum of Art August 3rd - November 30th
Posted 8/30/14

In a Marsden Hartley painting beats the dark heart of the twentieth century. The thin slice of globe-trotting work from 1913-1915 presaged some of the most ecstatic and iconic tropes to come. In a Marsden Hartley painting is the synthetic seed of Pollock’s urgency and John’s cool, detached symbology. Both men seemed to filch from Hartley’s rainbow palette, alternately whipped into creamy pastels or shot through with matte, inky blacks. The brief period straddling the outbreak of World Wa...

Intimate Strangers: In Conversation with Matthew Morrocco

7/7/14 Posted 7/7/14

Berlin, Jul. 2014: Matthew Morrocco’s “Berlin Series” depicts no-strings-attached encounters tied to the fabric of our most intimate human emotions. This tender photographic self-portrait series evokes the pleasure and pathos that can be embedded in online hook-ups. As a young New York artist studying in Berlin, Morrocco met older men and photographed them either alone or interacting with his nude body. He respectfully represents these men’s aged bodies and evident desires. P... [more]

Marsden Hartley at Neue Nationalgalerie April 5th - June 29th
Posted 6/12/14

The Neue Nationalgalerie’s Marsden Hartley, the German Paintings 1913-1915 provides an unprecedented opportunity to see thirty stunning oil paintings from the American Modernist’s Berlin years. These works have not been displayed together in a focused exhibition since the artist exhibited them himself in 1915. Commendably, the Neue Nationalgalerie recognized the need for an exhibition that brings together paintings from a period representing the pinnacle of Hartley’s abstractions and... [more]

Gallery Weekend offers an impressive lineup of some of the most successful and provocative artists represented by Berlin galleries. The exhibitions effectively target the international audience of curators and collectors who descend on the city for the three-day event. But the vibrancy of Berlin’s contemporary art scene is not concentrated solely in the Gallery Weekend’s official program. More than a commercial center for contemporary art, Berlin is also a vital site for its creation... [more]

Artists and Gentrification: Don't Let Action Dissolve into Discourse   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Whether you’re “poor but sexy” in Berlin, or “rich but sexy” in Hamburg[1], creativity brings people together, attracts tourists, and keeps investor money flowing into the real estate market. How do artists, cultural producers and activists deal with their complicity in the production and marketing of the city? In the Berlin project space am Flutgraben 3, concerned members of Berlin's independent art scene recently met with their Hamburg counterparts to sit down and compare... [more]

For about two decades now the qualifications “young,” “emerging,” and “new” have functioned as the ultimate buzzwords, inspiring a Pavlovian rustle of checkbooks amongst collectors “buying with their ears.” No wonder art fairs have latched onto the phenomenon by creating special sections dedicated to gallery start-ups. At Frieze it’s called Frame; Art Brussels has Young; Art Rotterdam’s got a New Art Section. And there is, of course, LISTE, the fair designed from the start to showcase the lates... [more]

I can’t say I didn’t see this coming: the end of year review. I approach this time of year with a mix of dread and depressed resignation with our current mediascape. My Facebook feed currently includes such reflective gems as “The 40 Most Influential Poms of 2013” and “35 Most Important Texts of 2013.” (Spoiler alert: they’re neither important nor deserving of the title “text.” Also, “Poms” is short for “Pomeranians,” in case...

SEPTIEME BIENNALE D'ART DE BERLIN Projet Art Covers Politics Quelques mots au sujet du projet Art Covers Politics: "Many people behind social media are already doing it. But we’d like to use this tool within art. That’s why we sent out the call for people to react to and document political events, and to engage in direct political action without it being labeled non-art or activism. Especially artists can be engaged observers, who use their skills to empower commu... [more]

Berlin’s contemporary art scene induces a headiness not recommended for those lacking stamina. We’ve only recently moved on from the monstrously huge offerings of Berlin Art Week, Berliner Liste, and Preview Berlin. Meanwhile, with its constellation of galleries – from Prenzlauer Berg to Neukölln – it sometimes feels like Berlin bequeaths a cynical gaze of see all-seen all to the regular gallery visitor with cold curatorial formations framing the city’s famous r...

Berlin vs. Paris: We Ask The Galleries   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Over the past fifteen years Berlin has carved itself a niche as the most vibrant artistic city in Europe, a place to find both galleries and working artists of all ilk. It has become synonymous with the type of creative energy that seems to push forward, always seeking new boundaries and forms. As such it makes an interesting contrast with Paris, a city that has previously taken this role but is now perhaps too stable, too comfortable, and maybe too expensive, to compete. In a way, within this context,... [more]

Dismembered Appendages: Kandis Williams   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 8/9/13

Kandis Williams cut her teeth in New Orleans and the gritty soul of the southern city shines through in her large-scale collages and sculptures. In the spirit of The Big Easy, Williams’ work carries a veneer of tragedy and violence that hovers on the surface of her images. Traces of the city, its mingling with the occult, and the impact it has made on Williams’ vision are embedded in each work and seem inseparable from their presentation. Her work is not delicate. Far from it, in fact:... [more]
