Frieze Previews: Jérôme Bel's Inflammatory Disabled Theatre Makes Its London Debut   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
at Frieze London October 15th - October 18th
Posted 10/12/14

It seems like this year, perhaps influenced by the performance series 14 Rooms that took place at Art Basel a few months ago, Frieze has taken a performative turn. Many of its special projects incorporate live shows, and a new section called Frieze Live will introduce performance-based works and reenactments of historical performances at the fair itself. For example, the Japanese duo United Brothers will offer the visitors a soup made of vegetables grown in the region of Fukushima’s 2011 nuc... [more]

Art from Music <----> Music from Art  
9/29/14 Posted 10/14/14

...In thinking about the act of choreography, the concept of visualizing music is one that has inspired my work - particularly this past year, in my paintings which illustrate personal responses to different songs. For example, my print above is a metaphorical mashup of Prince and Bob Dylan, combining lyrics and concepts from both artists. There is an interesting quote from Balanchine on Ballet Austin's site about making art from music: "Music like Stravinsky’s cannot be illustrated; one... [more]

Architecture Dramas  
9/24/14 Posted 10/15/14

My first introduction to performance art that reclaims public and architectural spaces was meeting the brilliantNoemie LaFrance, acclaimed site-specific Choreographer, Director and Producer of Sens Production, in 2003 in New York City. Subsequently I attended her debut work, "Descent" which took place on a spiraling staircase. Having also created a piece on a stairwell that I'd titled the same name, I connected with LaFrance's creative vision. Here is my "Descent" image which I shot in 1999 ato... [more]

The Importance of Being Awkward at Portland's Time Based Arts Festival   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
at Portland Institute of Contemporary Art September 11th - September 24th
Posted 9/10/14

Awkwardness is arguably a failure in a relationship to the terms of interaction. In our hyper-mediated 21st century we live increasingly curated lives where each action or image is constructed for specific, often distinct, audiences. We have become skilled at navigating multiple modes of communication and mediated performance that resist the risks of connection. Cautious of the misstep, we compartmentalize to avoid the slip into reading from the wrong script, preaching to the wrong choir—v... [more]

My Avatar and Me: An Interview with Jacolby Satterwhite  
12/1/13 Posted 12/1/13

New York, Nov. 2013: The digital age is currently facing certain adaptations that bring into question the modern’s faithfulness to understanding the past; texting incoherent typos being confused with Freudian slips was not considered by the original teacher and therefore could nullify the slip of the tongue theory. Psychological models in human development did not anticipate dualism in identity formation: the physical being and the digital projection of it via an online profile. Jacolby Satt... [more]

Dismembered Appendages: Kandis Williams   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 8/9/13

Kandis Williams cut her teeth in New Orleans and the gritty soul of the southern city shines through in her large-scale collages and sculptures. In the spirit of The Big Easy, Williams’ work carries a veneer of tragedy and violence that hovers on the surface of her images. Traces of the city, its mingling with the occult, and the impact it has made on Williams’ vision are embedded in each work and seem inseparable from their presentation. Her work is not delicate. Far from it, in fact:... [more]
