“I use the art of painting to represent color as the transparent appearance of light.”1When Swiss-born artist Rudolf de Crignis (1948–2006) first visited Manhattan in the late 1970s, he was deeply affected by Minimalism, particularly the powerfully spare abstract paintings of Agnes Martin, Robert Ryman, Brice Marden, and Ad Reinhardt. He soon made New York his home and shifted from performance, v...   [more]

A magnificent pair of screens painted in ink on an unusual background of silver and gold by Sakaki Hyakusen (1697–1752), the founding father of Nanga (Southern School) painting in Japan, present a shimmering vision of a watery landscape.

“There was no chance in Parades and Changes,” recalls composer Morton Subotnick. “Everything was done by choice, but there was a freedom in choice.”First performed in 1965, Anna Halprin'sParades and Changes pioneered the use of everyday movements and domestic rituals in dance, marking the onset of postmodern choreography. The dance revolves around a set of mundane tasks—unrolling giant sheets of plastic, sto...   [more]

As three ghostly voices share their stories, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s 2007 video installation Morakot (Emerald) lingers on dust, light, and memory in the empty rooms and hallways of a defunct Bangkok hotel. The Morakot Hotel was a haven for Cambodian refugees fleeing the Vietnamese invasion in the 1980s. By the late 1990s, however, the Thai economy had collapsed and the Morakot was forced to close i...   [more]

"My process is ritualistic at times: most paintings undergo a turbulent and destructive evolution before eventually settling into states of rest. Layers of color are built up and eroded like geologic strata. Figures are added, then scraped away or buried beneath subsequent layers, reflective of the way memories can be forged into stories and legends, or obliterated by time."   Tim Svenonius, 20...   [more]
