ArtSlant editors Natalie Hegert, Joel Kuennen, and Charlie Schultz met up at Agra, an Indian restaurant on Lexington Avenue, to discuss the opening of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, its surprises, best in show, and disappointments. They touch on trends and themes of scale, archives, lists, dongs, and objectness—parsing the line between artwork and artifact. Charlie Schultz: I guess I’ll start by saying I found this year’s iteration of the [Whitney] Biennial to be far less crowded than in... [more]

Did you know that in the 1920s a con artist sold the Eiffel Tower – twice? Or that Spain and Portugal once claimed discovery and settlement of the same nonexistent island? That MoMA might own an artwork by Marcel Broodthaers that isn’t an artwork at all? Collecting this sort of fun factoid is all in a day’s work for Agnieszka Kurant, the New York-based Polish artist who is equal parts scholar, editor, necromancer, and philosopher. In her interdisciplinary practice, stories, rumors, and... [more]

When I downloaded Snapchat onto my phone, I anticipated texted pics of my friend’s private parts. Fresh and naïve, or aloof and repressed, I assumed Snapchat, that’s by extension #selfie culture, had only one thing in mind. Snapchat is an app for text and picture messaging, mostly for cell phones. Everything sent through Snapchat disappears within seconds after being received and opened. If it’s not explicit, why else would you want your pictures to vanish seconds after th... [more]

The Photo and the Filing Cabinet   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Adam Helms at Almine Rech Gallery September 6th, 2013 - October 29th, 2013
Posted 10/4/13

In his seminal 1986 essay “The Body and the Archive”, Allan Sekula argued that photography, bolstered by notions of veracity both for and by its scientific and legal usage, could be an apparatus of power used for social categorization, repression, and criminalization. He demonstrated how in the nineteenth century the photographic archive, an epistemological, systematizing institution, came to designate a “criminal body” constituted as much from police photography as from...

Pulling the Rug Out: An Interview with Lin Hixson

9/16/13 Posted 9/16/13

Chicago, Sep. 2013: When I came to Chicago in 2004, Goat Island was a prominent feature in the performance art landscape. Its reputation extended beyond the Midwest, across the ocean to Europe. The group began in 1987 and, until its ninth and last performance in 2009, conscientiously developed a collaborative body of performance work. Co-founder and Director Lin Hixson since went on with Goat Island’s other co-founder, Matthew Goulish, to form a subsequent performance group, Every house has... [more]

Posted 6/12/13

The Schwules Museum is a critically important institution. It was the first museum in the world dedicated to the promotion and exhibition of LGBT-related art and artifacts. It holds an extensive archive of photographs, videos, films, sound recordings, autographs, art works, and ephemera dating back to 1896, much of which plays an invaluable role in the researching and documentation of queer history in Germany and abroad. Its necessity as a bastion of visibility in today’s increasingly heated politica... [more]

Still Living. The Tower and The Poem.   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

This is where a poem enters. After the introduction, before the conclusion. It does not need to tell the whole story, just as it can tell as much of its tale in the space where the line leaves off, empty cavities anticipating pause. This was going to be a meditation on the relationship between art and poetry, and the value of the ekphrasis, a poem that evokes the momentum and meaning of a work of art. Could a piece of text, both literally and visually, really reflect the rhythm of the image that... [more]

If the New York Public Library’s circulating picture library were constructed according to the popular tastes of the denizens of Instagram, then there would only be three folders: Food   —> (subcategory) macaroons Dogs / Cats Cleavage   —> (subcategory) “duck face” The NYPL’s library—a mere 1.2 million mainly photographic images culled from books, magazines, adverts, and grouped according to some 12,000 subject headings—seems quaint compared to the amount of visual information an online search engi...

Posted 2/6/10

The Reading Room is looking for artist’s printed projects, zines, publications, books and handouts that are actively interrogating or reconsidering the published format, and that are independent objects of artistic production, rather than functioning solely to document the artistic practice of their authors.On an initial basis, the chosen books will be shown at The Reading Room study desk and advertised as publicly viewable by appointment. Secondarily The Reading Room will seek to temporarily l... [more]
