Art or Not?

2/20/15 Posted 2/20/15

Art or Not? The art PR world: love it or hate it, it's a dab hand at spin. Each week, ArtSlant asks our readers to indulge us in a game of spot the difference. This week: empty galleries. Which of the images described below is judged to be a genuine work of art, by an artist who has won a prestigious art prize? #1 Lights go on, lights go off—sunshine and rain, and then back to beginning to repeat endlessly. I do not know what the artist was thinking about when he made it, but to me i... [more]

One Year of Filmmakers: Why One Gallery Is Dedicating 2015 to the Moving Image   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Tobias Zielony at KOW December 6th, 2014 - February 14th
Posted 1/26/15

Dedicating its programming to the work of seven noted filmmakers, KOW in Berlin gives its exhibition space over to the moving image in 2015. The year’s roster includes Germany representatives for this year’s Venice Biennale, Tobias Zielony and Hito Steyerl, pioneering feminist and experimental cinematographer Barbara Hammer, Russian activist collective Chto Delat?, Mario Pfeifer, Renzo Martens, and Clemens von Wedemeyer. Why is it so important to show and engage with film and video work? ... [more]

[VIDEO] Warsaw Gallery Weekend 2014   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 10/1/14

On the occasion of the Warsaw Gallery Weekend (WGW) 2014 we have just visited eight very diverse positions. The main program of the WGW was supported by 21 local galleries and one guest gallery from Prague. Collateral events were supported by institutions such as Zacheta – National Gallery of Art, Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, National Museum in Warsaw, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Theatre Institute, Adam Mickiewicz Institute or Academy of Fine Arts. This year, the Warsaw... [more]

Required Viewing – Chicago: Pictures for a Generation   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 9/5/14

Of the multitude of exhibitions opening this September in Chicago, one stands—or falls—singularly into view. A complete series of work by Maccarone artist Sarah Charlesworth that helped to define the Pictures Generation will be shown for the first time at the Art Institute of Chicago. The series, entitled Stills, features figures falling from great heights, suspended in front of buildings that function more as a frame than as a backdrop—static yet tense. Teasing the weight and...

The British (and the French) are coming!: Veterans meet new arrivals during Brussels Art Days   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 9/4/14

That Brussels has a thriving art scene is no longer a secret to the international art community. We’ve reached the point where some media have even baptized what was formerly regarded as a dull and grey city as the “New Berlin.” There’s no better moment to check it out with your own eyes than during the seventh edition of Brussels Art Days (BAD), Brussels’ reply to the Gallery Weekend in Berlin you might say. Twenty-nine galleries open their doors next weekend, while others not affiliated under the... [more]

No Longer Lonely (but maybe still a bit brutal): September Openings Across Los Angeles   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 9/4/14

The long languor of summer never truly fades in Los Angeles, but the heat simmers down just enough for the long sunsets to subside into cool nights, when prodigal travelers hurry home from sunstroked beaches and slaving artists vernissage across the city. Autumnal LA, though it certainly colors, hardly chills. Art exhibitions thickly dapple across this considerable town: Giuseppe Penone at Gagosian and Sam Falls at Hannah Hoffman on the 5th. On the 6th, Culver City unbolts with Ryan Mosley and Edgar... [more]

In Madrid young is sometimes old, sometimes French, but mostly from Berlin   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

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 th... [more]

Art Rotterdam’s Great Leap Forward   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

at Art Rotterdam February 6th, 2014 - February 9th, 2014
Posted 2/3/14

Fifteen years into the game Art Rotterdam has comfortably settled into the role of top contemporary art fair in the Netherlands. But director Fons Hof is not resting on his laurels. Edition 2014 signals a Great Leap Forward. This is to be taken quite literally as the fair is moving from the Cruise Terminal on the Kop van Zuid to the monumental Van Nellefabriek. The new venue, with its peripheral location bringing to mind Frieze New York, has a lot going for it: the catering – slow and poor... [more]

Berlin vs. Paris: We Ask The Galleries   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

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 co... [more]

The Sophomore Year: An Interview with Tony Karman, President and Director of EXPO Chicago   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 9/17/13

Chicago’s rocky road in the art fair business isn’t such a distant memory. But if the second iteration of EXPO CHICAGO – running September 19-22 – proves as appealing as its debut last year, that history may be finally relegated to the category of old news. As exhibitors put the finishing touches to their booths on Navy Pier, the show’s President and Director, Tony Karman, offers a few thoughts on his state of the art. Thomas Connors: How do you go about positionin... [more]

Bert Stern at La Galerie de l'Instant July 11th, 2013 - September 25th, 2013
Posted 7/23/13

This is a terrible show and I loved it. By any of the criteria by which most of the galleries I normally visit judge themselves it was, what, I don't know what to say, a joke? A disaster? A farce? As appears to be my normal approach I'm going to talk about two things, the gallery first, then I'll get on to the artist… The gallery was a mess! There was Bert Stern's work on the walls, with one or two other random photos thrown in, as well as lots of other pictures from other photographe... [more]

The Brussels Scene: Conviviality and Good Vibes   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Brussels. Sounds like mussels. And maybe a comparison between the two isn't completely out of this world. An oddly shaped, introverted entity, which has no particularly distinct features; looks pale, grey, and weirdly aggressive from the outside but provides a lot of protein to those who persist and dig in. In a recent article in The New York Times (Art Market | Big in Belgium, 3/20/13), Jim Lewis interviewed Art Brussels' new artistic director Katerina Gregos. She described Brussels as a city in a perpetual state of becom... [more]

Some Shows We Think You Should See   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 1/24/13

Perhaps the art fair brought you to LA, or maybe you live here but are looking for a little international flavor from the coterie of foreign art dealers caravanning in art from far-flung lands. There is a certain, dynamic allure to any assembly, party, fair. But in the end, nobody really loves an art fair. There's the art fairs in the Grand Palais in Paris, whose beautiful glass dome certainly takes the sting out, but as a rule a convention hall will only ever be a conventional hall: harsh overhead ligh...

Emerging and Alternative Spaces: Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Brazil is mind-bendingly big. It has a population of around 200 million, with a landmass of over 8,500,000 square kilometres. Which makes writing about its art scene naturally reductive. Gulp. What I’ll try to do then, is narrate some of the interesting things I did discover visiting two of Brazil’s most prominent international cities, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Clearing my head of kashasa, and getting over the size of the country (I am from the British Isles, which could fit into the coin pocke... [more]
