This Is Not a Music Video: A Video Art Playlist   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 6/1/15

“Video killed the radio star,” The Buggles sang in 1979. The song brims with nostalgic longing for a simpler, low-tech era that was more authentic and wholesome. Two years later MTV was launched, the first television network to non-stop broadcast music videos. With a self-congratulating sense of irony the programmers selected “Video Killed the Radio Star” as the first clip to be shown. The event may not have marked the actual death of the radio star but it did introduce a... [more]

Animals, Blood, Art?

Is there any limit when it comes to the definition of Art? Music videos have become very powerful tools. Converting music and lyrics into entrancing, calculated filmed performances, they have carved their way into our understanding of the music industry. Like any other craft, some videos are aesthetically beautiful and somewhat classical while others can imply powerful statements, be it political, emotional, etc.… Music videos are thus a perfect combination of performance art conveye...

What Does Christian Marclay's Glass Harp Sound Like?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 2/16/15

There is a certain subset of art that sustains the moment prior to critical thinking: that place before or beyond thought. Aesthetically attuned, the spectator is an empty glass resonating with vibrations, an orange pricked by a thumbnail, but not yet peeled. It’s a sweet pleasure to immerse myself in visual and aural sensations without probing them, questioning them, demanding the things of them that we must demand, as the socially responsible culture consumers that we are. Biweekly perfo... [more]

Björk's Breakup Album  
by
1/27/15 Posted 1/27/15

New Björk album. Vulnicura. Her ninth proper. Two main strands of conversation emerge in the public and media reaction: 1. Didn't she (and her team) deal with the whole album leak/rush release thing so much better than Madonna (and her team) did the other month? 2. It's a breakup album, isn't it? For an artist so adept at dealing with latest innovations in technology, it's perhaps interesting that the central lyrical theme of Vulnicura, chronicling her break-up with long term partner Matthew Barney, is...

The Magical Elixir of Art Pop   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 1/14/15

To some, the relationship between art and pop is pretty negligent. It exists in the value of Kanye West's design collection (est. $946,708 net worth) or the newsworthy copy of Millie Brown vomiting over Lady Gaga, but symbiotically? Yeah, I hear the groans. "Pretentious!"—they exclaim towards the latest Bjork multi-platform app or "turn this fucking shit off" as I'm forced to remove the needle from Trout Mask Replica. To these people, the clever, meaningless lyrics of early Eno and Ferry... [more]

Why Patti Loves Paris and Paris Loves Patti   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Patti loves Paris and Paris loves Patti, and the question that I’d ask is why? Now right at the beginning, up front, I need to make a few things clear. First, let me state that this relates to our FIAC coverage because Patti is performing at the most sought after, and possibly the only gig to feature as part of the FIAC programme. It's a reunion with John Cale, on Thursday night, at Fondation Cartier. Since this hardly seems sufficient to qualify my bold assertion I’ll also add tha... [more]

Luftwerk in Conversation: Turning Iconic Architecture into Multimedia Installations  
by
10/14/14 Posted 10/14/14

For more than ten years, Luftwerk (the creative vision of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero) have created art installations that merge elements of light and video with facets of architecture and design. An opportunity to create a new media exhibit for the centennial celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House in 2010 sparked a growing interest in architecture leading to a deeper engagement with space and culturally significant buildings. Luftwerk will have an installation at the Mies va... [more]

Confrontational Aesthetics: Choirboys Sing Insults in Allora & Calzadilla Performance   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Allora & Calzadilla at Gladstone Gallery - 24 St. September 13th, 2014 - October 11th, 2014
Posted 10/2/14

The Earth breaks along fault lines. Mountains are pushed up; buildings crumble. Active faults are sites of extreme subterranean tension that operate on an unpredictable timeline with potentially devastating environmental, economic, and social aftershocks. To live near a fault is to live with unending uncertainty. Entire cities and nations have suffered when the earth shudders along her lines. All of this would seem like ample fodder for the socially and politically minded artists Allora & Calzadilla unti... [more]

Bowie Victims: Confessions from David Bowie Is at the MCA Chicago   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 9/29/14

I’m not sure exactly what Jon Savage meant when he referred to “Bowie victims” in his book about the birth of punk rock, England’s Dreaming, but ever since I read that phrase it stuck with me. In a way I identified with it—being a big David Bowie adherent—and didn’t necessarily consider it as a derogatory term. I figure he meant teens obsessed with Bowie, the young androgynes with their flared high waters and platform boots, teased mullets and green eye m... [more]

Art from Music <----> Music from Art  
by
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 mu... [more]

David Bowie Is: Star Power – An Interview with Michael Darling   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

David Bowie Is, coming to the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in just a few weeks, is unprecedented to the extent that it is the first massive solo show the MCA has ever given to a musician. But as James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator Michael Darling discusses below, he was drawn to the exhibition because Bowie emulates the blending of media, the crossing over of disciplines he finds so relevant to contemporary artists’ practices. Darling was kind enough to sit down with me this month and explai... [more]

September in New York: Maneuver the mania   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 8/28/14

There is a shift in every August when this art critic’s inbox goes from near vacancy to nearly too packed to approach. The slim pickings of late summer exhibitions explode into a buffet of delicious opportunities. Great art, it seems, is everywhere in the city and the challenge (for me) is to not grotesquely over consume, which has taken years of practice and willpower development. And even still, it’s not a guarantee. In fact, despite my best efforts to maneuver the mania I have no... [more]
