The 6th Marrakech Biennale Thinks Beyond the "New" with a Critical Look at the Present   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 3/4/16

Usually, art world press conferences avoid politics, but for the opening of the 6th Marrakech Biennale, events like the Syrian refugee crisis were used as a starting point to introduce the exhibition, which kicked off February 23 featuring 50 artists across several venues of the ancient city. “Art brings together people, not tears them apart,” said the Palestinian curator Reem Fadda, who is the Associate Curator of Middle Eastern Art for the Abu Dhabi Guggenheim. In her selection of artis... [more]

Ebony G. Patterson's Un-visible Bodies   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Ebony G. Patterson at Museum of Arts and Design November 10th, 2015 - April 3rd
Posted 3/2/16

Ebony G. Patterson’s first NY solo exhibition, Dead Treez at the Museum of Arts and Design teems with light and shadow, evocations of death and new life, the sacred and the quotidian. The exhibition teems. There are flowers everywhere, carrying with them all the myriad cultural and ritual associations. Overgrown and opulent, Dead Treez connects with viewers through its palpable much-ness. With a surfeit of finely wrought materials the artist creates an affective atmosphere we often associate w...

Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology: Q&A with senior curator Anne Ellegood  
by
3/1/16 Posted 3/1/16

Originally published by M Daily Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology is the first, large-scale exhibition to tackle the genres of institutional critique and appropriation. Drawing from the work of 36 artists, each gallery is organized by specific themes (Representation, Politics, Media, America, Language, Interaction, Public Record, Archive) rather than by chronology. It is focused on work produced in America from the late 1970s through the early 1990s (although there is a smatter... [more]

Greg Sholette describes a “Mockstitution” as a mock institution that is an informally structured art agency that overtly mimics the name and to some degree the function of larger, more established organizational entities. Mockinstitution thrive within the voids left by an increasingly fractured social framework whose coherence is faltering thanks to rampant privatization, economic deregulation, ubiquitous social risk and day-to-day precariousness.

Cheers to Art Basel Miami 2015  
by
2/27/16 Posted 2/27/16

In writing this article, I first found myself repeating what I wrote last year. I guess I really want you to understand how much I love being amongst fellow artists, art enthusiasts, and art. So instead of reiterating my love of Art Basel Miami, I am here to tell you which of the art I would want to rip off the wall and take home with me …AND to take you on a journey to the party splendor that glows within Art Basel Miami. In this concentrated sea of art, there is a hope that just around t... [more]

Goldfinger Factory Artist in Residence  
by
2/25/16 Posted 2/25/16

My year long residency at the Goldfinger Factory, in Trellick Tower, is coming to a close. This, my second residency in an Ernö Goldfinger building, has been marked by an exploration of the material that the eponymous architect used to build London's most recognised Brutalist landmark - CONCRETE. By trawling through the RIBA archive at the V&A and breaking down the individual components of Trellick's listed concrete, I have been able to recreate specific damaged areas of the building out of...

Plastic Painting

2/25/16 Posted 2/25/16

Plastic Painting is the name I have given to my 3D painting process in solid acrylic. I developed the process of filling moulds with acrylic paint (of my own making) whilst working on a large-scale commission last year. My current residency at Goldfinger Factory, in Trellick Tower, enabled me to develop the process further to accurately recreate sections of the building's damaged concrete. After much material research and experimentation, I can successfully 'build' exposed aggregate concrete sl... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Musei Civici degli Eremitani, Padova (Padua)  
by
2/19/16 Posted 4/8/16

Musei Civici degli Eremitani, (Museo Archeologico e del Museo d'Arte Medievale e Moderna) in the ancient Italian city Padua impressed me, especially many artifacts from their Archaeological Department. I was most taken by small a bronze sculpture of a winged foot for its elegant shape in an assertive yet delicate style and the absence of the rest of the body made this piece more intriguing and unforgettable. My second favorite was a stone sculpture of a squatting bird-woman. Comparing the he sleek foot above, this one looked quite primitive, with its... [more]

Working with available light: re-developing a boxful of found photographs

Posted 2/16/16

Found objects have always been secret allies for visual artists. They are stumbled upon and acquired, magpie-like, because of a private vision of “intrinsic interest,” to be teased out and made concrete later. Found photographs, too, have long since found their place inside artists’ private wunderkammern. Following the Box, an exhibition of a particularly curious origin now on view at the Indian Museum, Kolkata, brings the aesthetic power of found photographs front and center. http:/... [more]
