Portrait of MCAB  
by
4/23/16 Posted 4/23/16

Portrait of MCAB The work "Portrait of MCAB" is not only about the issue of Museum as a space, which has been closed for some time; it is also about Museum s existence in time, as well as the biological aspect. Given that I have not had a chance to visit the interior of the Museum, neither when it was open for public nor now, I can infer that I do not have a relationship with it, and see it merely as one building in line building rotting away in Belgrade. The issue of time imposes itself... [more]

THE FUTURE OF ART: Fabiola Jean-Louis Rewrites History  
by
4/9/16 Posted 4/9/16

Recently exhibited at Harlem School of the Arts' freshly renovated Gallery Space, Fabiola Jean-Louis' Rewriting History is an interdisciplinary series that serves up a ride through antiquity and imagination. Modern period dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges notions of reality, time and space. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the artist creates a world that embodies an alternate past where people of color might have live... [more]

What Does an Interesting Theory Look Like?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Adriana Lara at Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler February 27th - April 9th
Posted 4/7/16

Interesting. The word says a lot and nothing at all. We often leverage it to describe people, projects, and ideas that we don’t quite know what to make of yet—or notions too complicated to be quickly defined. Used and abused, the word teeters on the brink of vacuity. Defining something as interesting insists on a radical subjectivity, the spark of a personal constellation of references and affinities. Yet it equally connotes the superficial bundle of affects often tendered in digital exc... [more]

Annette Weisser Traverses the Unsettled Moral Territories of Contemporary German Identity   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Annette Weisser at MiM Gallery March 26th - April 23rd
Posted 4/4/16

Annette Weisser is interested in the remnants of history on the human psyche. The Berlin-based artist came of age in rural Germany in the 1980s, grappling with the specter of National Socialism and her own political socialization in West Germany. As part of the Kriegsenkel generation (the “grandchildren of the war”), Weisser and her contemporaries are caught in a moral crisis, horrified by the fascism of the past and unsettled by their nation’s ethos of repentance since the 1960s. H... [more]

© Roberto Alborghetti-Mitrani Yarden The printing fabrics you see in this post don’t come or proceed from drawings, paintings or digitally made works. They come from realistic and abstract photos of torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial matters… They are part of a special series created and developed by me, Roberto Alborghetti (I’ve collected so far more than 90.000 pictures for my “Lacer/actions” proje...

I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to points. I thought, ‘Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn’t, then there’s a point to it.’ —Harry Nilsson At Kavi Gupta’s Elizabeth Street location, Tony Tasset has wallpapered the large warehouse space with 66 arrow paintings. The paintings, which feature pairs of arrows (one pointing up, the other pointing do... [more]

by Annie Shepard on July 26, 2015 Sticks and Stones The Amanda Knox Trial of Sienna Reid On November 2nd, 2007 Meredith Kercher was found dead in her apartment in Perugia, Italy. What followed was part murder investigation, part tabloid fodder, and part witch hunt. Amanda Knox, Meredith's roommate, was arrested for the crime. Despite having no physical evidence linking her with the scene of the crime, Knox was... [more]

By ERIC REGULY Through paintings, photographs, film and 'curse tablets,' artist Sienna Reid explores the Italian murder case that transfixed the world Sienna Reid's whimsical apartment in Rome's ancient Monti neighbourhood has morphed into a tantalizing cultural testament to Amanda Knox, the American student who was convicted, and later acquitted, of the murder of her British roommate in Perugia, Italy. Enormous strips of white paper hang from the walls of Reid's studio. They bear the grisly or outrageous... [more]

My Friends: The Naked and The Drunk The Portraits of Sienna Reid  
by
3/24/16 Posted 3/24/16

by Alison Gates All in all, I found this show, dare I say? Fun. The last time Sienna Reid showed at Collusion Gallery, in August 1997 for her show "My Friends, Naked," I approached the show with fear. The fear turned to respect when I realized that Reid had pulled off a feat of postmodernist dexterity by using one of the oldest painting formats, the nude portrait, to convey a new late-twentieth century kind of honesty and honor. Still, despite the fact that "My Friends, Naked" made... [more]

Imagine you have a daughter. She is a good kid -- almost 20 years old, hasn't ever been in trouble. Her friends, family, teachers, acquaintances all describe her with words like sweet, funny, sporty, loyal, wouldn't hurt a fly -- all things you might find in any high-school yearbook. She is about to embark on her junior year abroad -- an adventure for which she has saved and planned -- to Perugia, Italy, where she wants to study language. After just a few weeks in the country, she is accused... [more]

Here, There and Everywhere: Siera Hyte's Adventures in the Embodied

Siera Hyte, Installation views of Me and the king, 2015 © Siera Hyte, Courtesy of Queer Thoughts, New York. For a pint-sized, square room, Queer Thoughts’ current Tribeca location doesn’t afford much in terms of spatial twists and turns. That didn’t deter things here; the newly arrived gallery from Chicago kept proceedings quick-witted, and edgy. However, much of that edge had to do with the Siera Hyte, the San Diego-based artist who warmed the space up for its first winter... [more]

I met Carl Hazlewood in that most millennial of ways: Facebook. His daily postings of his and other artists’ works intrigued me; I had to “friend” him. What started as an interest in daily musings and pictorial renderings became a full-fledged 3D friendship. But Car... [more]
