Rise Up, Nasty Women: Artists Respond to Trump

by Andrea Alessi
“Literally the day the election results were announced I started working on the exhibit,” says artist and curator Indira Cesarine. Next week, her Tribeca gallery, The Untitled Space, opens the exhibition UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN, featuring work by 80 women-identifying artists addressing the social and political climate in America today. Cesarine wasn’t the only one sparked into immediate action. “Hello female artists/curators! Lets organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who's interested???” artist Roxanne Jackson posted on Facebook a few days later. She had no idea jus... [more]

In Commanding Prints, Afro-Cuban Artist Belkis Ayón Unites Mythology and Cultural Critique

by Sola Agustsson
Nkame, a salutation that translates to “greeting” in the Abakuán language, welcomes Belkis Ayón’s first solo show in the United States to the Fowler museum. After Ayón’s death in 1999, the Afro-Cuban artist’s body of work was declared a patrimony by the Cuban government and was not allowed out of the country until recently. Ayón’s mysterious black-and-white prints appear as an obscure treasure that has just been uncovered, so it is fitting that her work be centered on the mythology of the Abakuá, an Afro-Cuban all-male secre...

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Martina Menegon

by Christian Petersen
Martina Menegon is an Italian new media artist and educator currently based in Vienna, Austria. Her art explores “the instability and ephemerality of the human body as well as the alienation from physicality in today’s digital age, questioning the gap between real and virtual, flesh and data.” Menegon’s expression of these ideas range from uncanny scenes of endless, undulating fleshy figures to far more personal depictions of her own digitally distorted physical form. Her work reveals the ever-evolving relationship between all of us and the inescapable digital world, as w... [more]

In a Gentrifying London Neighborhood, Artists Connect Personal and Global Displacement

by Danyel Ferrari
It’s a decidedly vulnerable act many of us have experienced: the frantic search for something in your bag, bent over or on your knees in airport or a train station, personal articles spread out around you as you hunt for missing keys or passport, maybe trying to keep certain items hidden—tampons, condoms, echoes of bodies and sexuality deemed too personal for public exposure. Berlin-based artist Tanja Ostojić’s ongoing project Misplaced Women?, first performed in Zagreb in 2009, centers on a simple but familiar choreography Ostojić both undertakes herself and delegates t...

In 2016, Women Artists Led the Way in New Media

by Andrea Alessi
A couple weeks ago I asked Christian Petersen, who writes the fortnightly “Wednesday Web Artist of the Week” column, to pick his favorite artist interviews of 2016. For his edification, I emailed over a list of the year’s best-read pieces, which, I keenly observed, comprised all women artists. Oh, “it’s gonna be ALLL ladies for sure,” he shot back. I asked if he had any reflections on what he learned interviewing 25 new media artists and curators this year. “What I’ve really taken away from the column is that the world of new media art is home...
