Art or Not?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/29/15

Art or Not? Art nowadays has many different forms: it can smell, move, be big, small, or even invisible. Sometimes it can be mistaken for garbage. Sometimes it is garbage, and it becomes an artwork. But often the art we see everyday has a singlular, flat form—it has to battle with the challenges of the screen. What we refer to as "Art" is more desultory now than ever before. Can we really tell the difference? Do words change everything? Every week, we ask you to be the judge. This week, can you discern which m... [more]

By: Amy Haddad A group show at LVL3 in Chicago brings together three artists that explore germination in multiple ways. Heidi Norton. “The Plight (feeding Systems).” Image courtesy of LVL3. Visitors attending the “Germination” exhibition at LVL3, a gallery in Chicago, should expect to be surprised by the connections the show offers. The title brings to mind seeds growing into plants. But the visitor cannot help thinking how the term germination has expanded after seeing an amalgama... [more]

Please find my latest article (a small presentation as for me) has been already posted on Oct-24-2015 by "Art Platform NYC" located at 817 Broadway in New York.

A Flâneur’s Guide to FIAC’s Hors Les Murs   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
at FIAC October 22nd - October 25th
Posted 10/20/15

With its annual Hors Les Murs programming, FIAC is once more transforming Paris into a tableau vivant with art spread citywide, well beyond the glass domes of the Grand Palais. Here you’ll find a suggested promenade replete with the best artful stops outside the fair’s walls. Follow my itinerary, or in the true spirit of Baudelaire’s flâneur, go ahead and wander, get lost, and see what you find—you’re sure to stumble upon some art! Dan Graham, Passa... [more]

Can an Art Fair Actually Transform a City? In Paris, Yes   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/20/15

It’s kind of an obvious thing to say that Paris is different from London and New York, and no doubt many other cities that I haven’t had the opportunity to visit or live in, but still it is. Specifically this is in the sense that it isn’t—no matter what any Parisien will tell you—a huge, teaming, hyper-megapolis. It’s actually a small and crowded city of only two million inhabitants (yes, in cultural terms the banlieue is only beginning to maybe exist [see “... [more]

Chicago's Concept-Based Group Exhibitions Show Strength in Numbers   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/19/15

There are forms we know and forms we strive for. This is Plato’s theory—that the ideal is an immovable image, an untouched idea, and that what we know is constantly subject to change and transformation as it goes. For artists and viewers alike, the form of a group exhibition is not always the ideal. The feel of these shows sets up a certain expectation from viewers, often a feeling of decentralization—that the variety of voices is favored over a singular approach, assemblage over inseparability. In... [more]

Trends at Sunday Art Fair: Everyday Objects   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/16/15

I feel a little sorry for the Sunday Art Fair. As the fair for emerging art it should really be the offshoot of Frieze that shows the cutting-edge work, the small galleries, the artist run spaces, and so on. Instead it can unfortunately feel like forgotten backwater of the whole event, stuck as it is just a little bit too far location-wise, just a bit too hidden in the basement of Westminster University, and not as big and buzzing as it could be. Which isn’t to say that you can’t see good w... [more]

Uttering "Other": Across Berlin Slavs and Tatars Parse Language and Difference   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/14/15

Raised plastic titles display Arabic lettering. The text is slightly enlarged so that it imitates brail—raised to suggest that the shapes could be read with hands—turning texture into thought. A red exclamation point disrupts the script—a western interruption bordering on fusion. These are some of the constructed artifacts on display in the Preis der Nationalgalerie exhibition at Hamburger Bahnhof by the collective Slavs and Tatars, who were nominated for this year’s award. Th... [more]

In the Shadow of Rusting Steel, Art Engages a City's Post-Industrial Legacy   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

In Pittsburgh, the ghost of industrial America is more unwieldy than in any city this side of Detroit. Abandoned buildings and machinery abound, with a lot less of this past repurposed than in more modern and populous places like Brooklyn or Chicago. Alloy Pittsburgh’s bi-annual exhibition at Carrie Furnaces, just over the city’s border in Homestead, PA, looks to create a symbiosis between Pittsburgh’s heavy rustbelt legacy and the opportunities its rubble leaves. The furnaces stand as the only ones left in the regi... [more]

Thank God for a new generation of artists! Today’s emerging artists stay away from the pushy know-it-all attitude of macho modernists who for half a century were quick to dismiss as inferior anyone supporting a dogma not their own. Neither are they infected by the postmodern virus of egalitarianism, which in the end robs everything of value and reduces art to an ironic game of smart references and endless footnotes. Artists of today are not afraid to shop around for culturally diverse icono... [more]
