The Fairman Family at ARTHOUSE1 > London

Posted 8/15/15

It isn’t often that you get the chance to look into the workings of a family of artists over three generations, laying themselves open to scrutiny and speculation on their relationships. With the age of the artists ranging from the mature seventies to the youthful twenties, the work is bound to be wildly diversified; from the skilled and honed creativity of one generation to the enthusiastic optimism of another, with all sharing a dedication to, and love of, the arts, each exploring and de...

First there was the Boyle Family and now it's the Fairman Family but with a twist. The Boyles collaborated, the Fairmans worked independently and only brought the work together as part of the curating process. Bold? Foolhardy? Well, it works! "You People" is a celebration of the variety of creative talents across three generations of the family - Sheila Fairman and her chidren, Sean, Rebecca, Jonathan and Robert and grandchildren, Jackson and Georgia. The show revolves around the installation... [more]

by
László Moholy-Nagy at Santa Barbara Museum of Art > Los Angeles
July 5th - September 27th
Posted 8/2/15

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come puts forth a unique take on Moholy-Nagy's painted work with the incorporation of two interventionist pieces by other creators and a smattering of his own theatrical and photographic works. Due to the technology-based works’ expense and inherent complications, Moholy-Nagy reinvestigated painting as a medium to explore light and optics, while still drawing inspiration from these periodic experiments with other media. Perhaps somewhat mi... [more]

Art or Not? Summer is properly upon us: the art world populus has migrated from urban cultural epicentres to scattered exotic outposts—but this time, the art is following them. Hoping to posit itself as one of those is Marbella, freshly added to the fair circuit, with its inaugural edition of Art Marbella. Will it change the attitudes of the cultural elite towards this coastal luxury hotspot, currently known as a magnet for Brits with bad taste? We've been on the prowl to see what's on off... [more]

Art or Not? You thought you had the art world sussed, but every once in a while it chucks you a curve ball. In short, sometimes art can seem like a joke. What if we strip away the nonsense jargon—is the artwork still an artwork? What if we attribute those words to a different image—does that make it more legit? Every week, we ask our readers to play a game of guess who, and enjoy moment of irreverance in an oh-so-serious art world... This week: which pile of goo was made by an art... [more]

Art or Not? "An intellect says a simple thing in a hard way, an artist says a hard thing in a simple way"—Bukowski once quipped. On our weekly meanderings through galleries and press releases, we seem to find that the art world is full of both. Each week, we select some of our findings and ask you to have some fun figuring out with us just what is art, what is artifice, and what is just bottles of cleaning product. This week: One of the images described below is a genuine piece and text by... [more]

Comicon North Article by Rebecca Romani It’s late on a Friday and the Studio Door Gallery on 30th is still going strong for the opening of its national Comicon-inspired show, “Strip: Caricature, Satire and the Funnies.” The caricature artist is working on a couple who looks thrilled to be getting mildly caricaturized and someone is busily adding lines to the communal canvas off in the corner. She is concentrating so hard she barely notices people looking over her shoulder. ... [more]

Did Starbucks Really Rip Off Maya Hayuk's Artwork?  
by
7/13/15 Posted 7/13/15

Image via Starbucks Every artist worth their salt has their own distinctive aesthetic, and that proves especially important for graffiti and street art, where artists compete directly in the public space, not only to catch the eye of the passerby but to build an instantly recognizable identity within their community. Graffiti, after all, is all about whose tag is "up" the most in a territory. Brooklyn-based Maya Hayuk works both in the streets and the studio and her aesthetic is ubiquitous. With its pop ne...

Contemporary art discourse constantly refers to the male gaze as it stays trained on a female body: longing, projecting, mapping, invading. But when the male gaze turns inwards, towards its host male body, not... [more]
