Why Patti Loves Paris and Paris Loves Patti   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 10/23/14

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 th... [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 van... [more]

Confrontational Aesthetics: Choirboys Sing Insults in Allora & Calzadilla Performance   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Allora & Calzadilla at Gladstone Gallery - 24 St. September 13th - October 11th
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 & Calz... [more]

Bowie Victims: Confessions from David Bowie Is at the MCA Chicago   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) September 23rd - January 4th, 2015
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 mak... [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... [more]

David Bowie Is: Star Power – An Interview with Michael Darling   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) September 23rd - January 4th, 2015
Posted 8/29/14

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 ex... [more]

September in New York: Maneuver the mania   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
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 not... [more]

The Vitality of the Unknown: The Possible at the Berkeley Art Museum   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 3/8/14

On a large circular rug in the yawning atrium of the brutalist Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, they are playing a game. A sign welcomes you on the carpet though it requests you take off your shoes. It’s not too hard to figure out, but the MC pads across the carpet with bare feet and whispers to you the rules. Most but all wear white sleeveless sheets belted over their clothes, but not all. Echoing sounds of a couple playing music on a laptop and synths, they stand and lay and be... [more]

Funk and Revolution: Stan Douglas Recreates the 70s in Music and Politics   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Stan Douglas at David Zwirner- 533 W. 19th January 9th - February 22nd
Posted 2/19/14

Stan Douglas’s mesmerizing, deceptively simple Luanda-Kinshasa floats somewhere between music video, installation art, and historical reenactment. The square-format video is projected at movie theater dimensions in one cavernous, blacked-out gallery of David Zwirner. In the video, cameras pan around a recording studio full of musicians in the middle of a jam session. They are conjuring the African-infused funk-jazz of the 1970s, full of hand drums, guitar scrapes, electric piano, and strong... [more]

"Yes that's right punk is dead, it's just another cheap product for the consumer’s head Bubble gum rock on plastic transistors, school boy sedition backed by big time promoters" So sang Crass in their 1978 track Punk is Dead... And the big time promoter in this instance is the French state via Cité de la Musique, where, from a certain perspective, Punk suffers the final ignominy of transferring from cultural reference or product for sale to vitrine protected cultural artefact to be pe...
