Earlier this month, London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz made headlines with his 3D-printed "nano" sculptures. Each sculpture is approximately 80 x 100 x 20 microns—so small that they can only be viewed using an electron microscope. The sculptures are an impressive, ambitious use of 3D printing technology in fine art. With help from the Weizemann Institute of Technology, Hurwitz used over 200 cameras and a groundbreaking 3D printing technique referred to on his website as “Multiphoton Li... [more]

I was in a conversation with the curator Lucia Schreyer the other day. We were discussing the latest exhibition at Palais de Tokyo; we have differing opinions about it. I enjoyed the show very much. Once again it seemed as though the PdT had curated an exciting, interactive exhibition, fully using the space they have available and successfully iterating the concept of "Inside." Lucia didn’t like it so much. Her complaint was that it is too spectacular, like "a Luna Parc" for adults, and to b... [more]

ANCIENT WARRIOR TORSO PROJECT - Commentary By Robert Curcio; “They are direct castings of an actual person which gives it history and a sense of familiarity to the viewer. By placing it at the same height as the person, the viewer has a physical relation to the piece. Also, it’s not idealized or a bland generic mannequin or a freak - it’s me, the viewer. The viewer could be having a conversation with this "person" or knows someone just like that. These are all points that mak... [more]

Cameron Crone at Jancar Jones Gallery October 25th - November 22nd
Posted 11/13/14

By way of introduction, Cameron Crone's first solo-show at Jancar Jones, Reflow the Logic Board, is a testament to just how strange and surprising photography can get. The artist presents color photographs of to-scale beach towels, their terrycloth weaves intervened with kitty litter dripped-sand-castle-y patterns, all laid out on some mysterious concrete ground. Crone has also fabricated a series of urban-aqueduct-cum-skate-ramp sculptures, with terrazzo beveled curves and arcs. The work is very... [more]

Amsterdam, Oct. 2014: Some people are called to the arts by way of a detour, but Chaim van Luit’s route is exceptional by any standard. Being a bit too restless for the regular educational system he dropped out of high school at 17 and joined the marines. He traveled the world working ten-hour shifts for months on end. At the end of his four-year tour he decided it was time for a change. After taking a special entry exam he was accepted at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht. He laid dow... [more]

Joan Jonas at HangarBicocca Foundation October 2nd - February 1st, 2015
Posted 10/26/14

Time is the one thing we can all agree to call supernatural. It is at least neither energy nor matter… and yet it is the beginning and end of the creation of the world. Joan Jonas concluded her performance at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan with these words from Under the Glacier (1968), a little known, visionary novel by the Icelandic writer Halldór Laxness. The acclaimed New York video and performance artist looked like a Lilliputian creature, an aged little fairy; her snow-whit... [more]
