Natalia Zuluaga Kicks Off ArtCenter/South Florida’s Latest Chapter with “An Image”

by Audrey L. Phillips
When ArtCenter/South Florida opened on Lincoln Road in 1984, in the heart of South Beach, the street was “nearly abandoned and severely dilapidated.” Today the center, which hosts exhibitions, classes, and a studio residency program, is credited with kickstarting the revitalization of the mall and its surrounding area. Following the appointment of Natalia Zuluaga as Artistic Director this August, ArtCenter itself is getting something of a revitalization. Dynamic changes are underway as the promising Bard Center for Curatorial Studies graduate begins her tenure with an ambitious ex... [more]

The Artist Positioning Himself as Richter’s Crown Prince

by Edo Dijksterhuis
Next year Eberhard Havekost turns fifty: time to balance the books. The press release for his current solo at KINDL positions Havekost “among the most important German artists of his generation.” The artist himself probably doesn’t agree with an accolade this generic, especially when it’s accompanying the kind of self-confident display of painterly power that is Inhalt. The show takes up two full floors and doesn’t leave much wall space unused. The works on show are so diverse, they could have been created by three or four different artists. Most recognizable as Ha... [more]

Pipilotti Rist Unleashes the Comforts and Terrors of the Technological Sublime

by Olivia B. Murphy
Entering the three-floor exhibition currently on view at the New Museum, everything immediately slows down. The lights are dim, colorful projections hitting almost every wall and surface, illuminating people and subsequently turning them into shadows. Some visitors sit, splayed out on a plush carpet to watch the wall-to-wall two-channel video projections, while others drift through flowing gauzy curtains, a soft warbling tune flooding the air. This digital playground is Pipilotti Rist’s Pixel Forest, the first major retrospective of the Swiss artist, featuring works spanning her thirty-... [more]

What do we do now? [Updating]

by Joel Kuennen
Farcical fascist, Donald Trump, will be winging his way through the next four years at the head of the United States government. Fuck this. Stay angry. Be helpful. Be safe. Artists have a duty to remain committed to the critique of society and while this list is not just art-related, our lives and our practices must confront and accept their political implications. Friends and family have been sharing resources — thank you to those of you who shared yours with us. Below is an updating list of resources and organizations for all vulnerable peoples and their allies to survive the o... [more]

GCC: Nation-making and the Power of Positivity

by Hend F. Alawadhi
GCC’s latest solo show Positive Pathways (+) at Mitchell-Innes and Nash features mixed media installations, thermoformed wall reliefs, and sound works. The show is an elaborate tongue-in-cheek reflection of the Arab Gulf States’ recent investment in New Age spirituality trends, from personal holistic remedies, natural healing energies, and positive life-coaching, to governmental policy making such as implementing Feng Shui techniques in ministry offices and the UAE’s recent forming of a Ministry of Happiness. The regional unrest of the Arab Spring barely scratched the surface... [more]

Drill Camp: Ingo Niermann Is Assembling an Army of Love

by Vanessa Gravenor
On a rainy afternoon in Berlin, during the latter half of Berlin Art Week, I met with writer and artist Ingo Niermann to discuss his new project about bringing love, sex, and intimacy into the realm of social justice—ideas put forth in his novel Complete Love and the film Army of Love, commissioned and co-produced by the 9th Berlin Biennale. Complete Love is the latest edition in the Solution Series, an exercise bringing together experimental proposals and fiction to respond to the pressing needs of contemporary society. Solution 9, for example, addresses the dearth of land for proper body burials... [more]
