Daniel Anselmi at Carver Hill Gallery > Worldwide Rockland
September 5th - October 1st
Posted 9/8/14

Carver Hill has opened up their well-lit space with some clever structural changes and interior colours, and Daniel Anselmi's art appears all the stronger for the gallery giving over its entire space to this exhibition; a delightful surprise for the visitor and a clever way of creating a journey through the paintings, collages, and assemblages on the first floor, towards the Monhegan Island Series of monotypes on the second floor. The work in the lower gallery feels like the vibrant big brot... [more]

20140905173811-katie_paterson_mg_0183 The Margaret Atwood Book You'll Never Get to Read  
9/5/14 Posted 9/5/14

Word of Scottish artist Katie Paterson’s Future Library made the rounds this summer when the artist launched her 100-year-long project to build a library literally from the forest floor up. Future Library is back in the news again after it was announced this week that the first author to contribute a new work to the library will be none other than Man Booker Prize winner Margaret Atwood. Paterson is known to think big—on a geological or even astronomical scale. She embedded a cell p... [more]

Forrest Bess at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive > San Francisco
June 11th - September 14th
Posted 9/4/14

Among the giants (Rothko, Still, and Pollock) represented by the Betty Parsons gallery in the 50’s and 60’s, there roamed the small but potent work of an artist named Forrest Bess. He hailed from Bay City, Texas, a bait fisherman and oil rig roughneck by day, and a conduit for the visualization of eternal truths by night. Parsons heard his name through the grapevine, and when she came to Texas, she ate him up with her silver spoon. Parsons mounted no less than six solo exhibits of B... [more]

VIDEO: Christo Goes White Water Rafting  
9/4/14 Posted 9/5/14

We've had our eyes on Christo's Over the River Project for several years (Christo's been working on it now for twenty years), and every so often we get updates from the OTR squad on the project's various legal battles and incremental successes. The two-week project, which proposes to install a series of fabric panels over the Arkansas River in Colorado, has already received permission from the Federal Government, Colorado State Parks, the State Land Board and Fremont County, Colorado, but faces chal...

(Image: Gregg Simpson, Coast Pattern 2, 2008, oil on linen, 16 x 20 x 2 inches; © Gregg Simpson) Gregg Simpson (b. 1947, Ottawa, Ontario) I grew up in the rainforest environment of the west coast. I work in the tradition of abstract surrealism. My paintings and drawings combine automatism with elements of landscape and the figure. They are improvised from simple charcoal outlines and then combined with the direct application of paint onto raw canvas. The meaning of the forms changes with ea... [more]

James Lee Byars at MoMA PS1 > New York
June 15th - September 7th
Posted 8/31/14

On August 11, 1977, the California Museum of Science and Industry in Los Angeles hosted Space Day, a carefully planned and tightly orchestrated media event organized by Whole Earth Catalog editor and environmental activist Stewart Brand. The symposium was an odd pairing, merging the utopian messaging of the back-to-the-land movement with a campaign to establish space colonies put forth by the military-aeronautics industry. In an opening speech, honored guest, astronaut Russell Schweickart spoke to... [more]
