5/20/15 Posted 5/20/15

Art or Not? We live in an image-centric culture, and yet, words are powerful—especially when spat out of the engine of the art world, the press release. Does text add value? Are they taking the piss? The more art you see, the more it destablizies your notion of what it is. Every week, ArtSlant asks our discerning readers to participate in our tomfoolery, and ask you, is it art, or not? This week: Which of these pavement pictures described below is, in fact, a print for sale? #1 Up... [more]

By S. Nicole Lane Ta Prohm Trees, Gallery 2, Nancy Lu Rosenheim “I sat there, my heart beating fast, shaken by what had happened.

The devastating earthquake in Nepal has resonated as deeply with many in the arts community especially given the region's rich arts heritage and far-reaching cultural connections to institutions and organizations all over the world. During these times of global sadness, and as people the world around reflect on the crisis and its aftermath, we're reminded of the pivotal role of art as an expression of the inexpressible, uniting people and as an effective way to galvanize masses to action: two w...

Art or Not? Love it or hate it, the PR machine that drives contemporary art world sometimes seems to take the piss. Is this endemic of laziness, or a stroke of genius? Can spin turn the humble hoover into a work of art?

A gaggle of young adults dressed to the nines on a street corner in Silver Lake, CA, is not an uncommon occurrence. It probably happens every day for some reason or another. It’s not so common, however, when the entire street corner itself is also dressed up. At the intersection of Bates and Sunset, you can see an entire block coated in white wash. The former Bates Motel and its surroundings, including fences, barbed wire, palm trees, and shrubbery, are all covered in an organic, lime-ba... [more]
