Annunciation, a new solo show by Elina Brotherus at gb agency, is also the title of a new series of photographs initiated in 2009. This work retraces Elina Brotherus' work back to photographs stemming from her own personal experience and her will to put on stage a subject still taboo: infertility.

20130620172620-gaga J'accused: Orlan Takes Gaga to Court for $31.7 million  
by
6/20/13 Posted 6/20/13

They say the highest form of flattery is imitation. They were wrong. The highest form of flattery is eight figures and the right to say, officially, that Gaga comes to you for tips. French artist Orlan is taking Lady Gaga to court for as much, claiming the Mother Monster stole her look. Lady Gaga was not, as Orlan claims, "born this way." Rather, she plagiarized every bit of her third album from Orlan, which is why she's suing for 7.5 percent of the profits, or $31.7 million. In an interview wi... [more]

Marie Denis at Galerie Alberta Pane 4/4/13 Posted 4/4/13

For "Lucy", her third solo show at Alberta Pane Gallery, Marie Denis has chosen to present new large format sculptures. But who is Lucy? Our ancestor, of course, that Australopithecus afarensis, the first woman, the first lady... On this occasion the gallery will turn into a place of birth, of origins, of a beginning. It is also a metaphor for an impossible acquaintance, for the difficulty - impossibility even? - to transfer any knowledge of reality. A reality transformed into knowledge, on whi... [more]

GEOslant with Himali Singh Soin: "Come as you are, Leave as you will be": In Memory of Georgia Fee  
by
Posted 1/4/13

I once imagined what it would be like to disappear. From the earth, society, my self. To be a hole. And what it would be like to exist so completely, that I could be omnipresent, on earth, in society, to my self. Whole. And it was with Georgia that I experienced this.   We went, along with Jim Benn, a fellow ArtSlant writer, to see Yayoi Kusama's retrospective at the Pompidou while I was visiting Paris, but we didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. We had no idea that we would swim... [more]

Not only that, but reading these entries also gives you a glimpse of who Georgia was, and how she saw the... [more]

PERHAPS PARIS by James Thompson Listen, there is no way around it. In the article that follows I'm going to be forced to wield sweeping generalisations, peddle the occasional stereotype, and generally piss off the people of my adopted home. However. It needs to be done. It's like one of those difficult talks that normally take place in the kitchen and are basically painful for one party. Home truths might be what we are dealing with here. I would also like to say that this is... [more]
