Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Dylan Neuwirth   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 8/24/16

Seattle-based artist Dylan Neuwirth has carved a distinct path in the world of digital art. Of course he’s not the only artist to represent his thoughts on the digital age through non-digital, physical objects. But he’s made his unique mark using the archaic element of neon to meditate on the complexities of our world. Neuwirth’s work combines instant gratification with esoteric exploration. A thread of thoughtful, electronic paganism runs through much of his creations, but he i... [more]

Where Is the Beach? Is It Under the Paving Stones?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Nicky Broekhuysen, Joseph Griffiths at Centrum July 22nd - August 14th
Posted 8/16/16

The very notion is deeply romantic. A location of perfect tension, where the weather is honest and the sounds are cyclical. The Beach is that point in space where time and energy laps onto a surface, reworking it; constructing and deconstructing; giving and taking away. No less romantic is the notion that a “beach” surrounds us all under the tiles, asphalt, and paving stones of the city, beneath the constructs of our society. That it is always there, ever present, pushing up against th... [more]

Posted 8/15/16

In 2009, Cheim & Read hung the provocative group show The Female Gaze: Women Look at Women, which showcased women artists taking control of their own images. In an encore presentation this summer, women artists turn their gaze this time toward men, reversing one of art’s most long-standing power structures. The Female Gaze Part II: Women Look at Men brings together work from 32 artists, all utilizing the subject of men, or the male body, as a way to confront, or even turn the tables on the Male Gaze,...

“But a storm is blowing from Paradise; it has got caught in his wings with such violence that the angel can no longer close them.” Walter Benjamin wrote these words describing Paul Klee’s Angelus Novus in his 1940 essay “These on the Philosophy of History.” The storm, he continues, is “what we call progress.” In the Guggenheim Museum’s ongoing group exhibition But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa,...

My Favorite Sculptures at Palazzo Municipale in Ferrara, Italy  
8/3/16 Posted 8/6/16

During my brief day trip to Italian city Ferrara, I admired two bronze sculptures on top of the arch entrance to its Palazzo Municipale (City Hall) — Arco del Volto del cavallo (Arch of Horse Front). On the left, there was the seated statesman Duca Borso d'Este & Marchese Niccolo III d'Este and on the right, equestrian sculpture of Marchese Niccolo III d'Este. Of these two equally impressive sculptures, the more flamboyant equestrian made more immediate impressions. The overt masculinity and grandeur was reflected with his insolen... [more]

On the Front Lines by Jillian Russo | June 9, 2015 Since the passage of the GI Bill during World War II, thousands of veterans have studied at the Art Students League of New York. Returning World War II veterans rejuvenated the League, making it a site of experimentation and an incubator for postwar artists. The GI Bill made an art education accessible to those who might not otherwise have become engaged in the field, and the influx of students strengthened an ambitious community.... [more]

My Favorite Artworks at Duomo in Ferrara, Italy  
7/31/16 Posted 8/4/16

My brief excursion from Bologna to Ferrara led me to the wonderful Duomo, whose distinct façade of triple gables immediately brought me to a purified world of classicism. True to the expectation, my favorite sculpture inside was a sculpture of a bishop (and a saint?) standing in a niche with minimal decoration. The most striking feature was the resolute and clean lines of the soaring figure, reminiscent the works of the great Bernini, such as his masterpiece of "Ecstasy of S... [more]

My Favorite Artworks at Basilica Santuario Santo Stefano, Bologna  
7/24/16 Posted 7/30/16

Basilica Santuario Santo Stefano, the oldest church in Bologna, was very atmospherically evocative and romantic, and the many unique artefacts in its often darkish chambers added much allure. The artwork left the strongest impression on me was a small plate of relief on the exterior of its nave, featuring three primitive looking figures with haloed heads resembling astronauts' in headgear, and stiffly raised hands sending signals of warning or blessing. The central figure, the only seated on... [more]

My Favorite Monuments at Il palazzo dell'Archiginnasio, Bologna  
7/18/16 Posted 7/26/16

Il palazzo dell'Archiginnasio (The Palace of Archeology) in Bologna is a fantastical enclosed palatial building, whose corridors are adorned with numerous decorative emblems, all of them can be viewed as relief sculptures. My favorite was a monument of a tower wrapped by a snake and topped by a huge cross. I didn't like stare at that animal and couldn't decipher the exact meaning of the symbol, other than it resembled a reverse caduceus; but it stood out in the pack. My second... [more]

Macri’s Orgasmic Forge by Kenneth Radu  
7/17/16 Posted 7/17/16

The night is thick with heat and windless humidity. I am restless and stimulated, my body temperature rising in the dark room as I stare at and am consumed by an extraordinary Macri image: Drop Curtain. I have no idea what Macri intends by this image, his title notwithstanding, but I mean to write what it means to me because I cannot quench the fire in my bones until I do so. We don’t need to know what an artist “meant” in order to understand what the art means to us, and it... [more]

The Return of the Hand: (Re)materializing the Everyday Object

Posted 7/17/16

Art and object are at a crossroads, the latter pressing upon the former in unapologetic terms. With these blurry borders, the object—once just a thing in the world, a commodity, really—is now widely considered art object par excellence, meaningful in its quotidian thingness, its ontological being now revelatory. That we’ve arrived at a juncture where the object now speaks is interesting to think through in terms of the potential epistemological offshoots. For instance, what know... [more]
