A New York City native, Adrian Piper now lives in Berlin after her refusal to return to the States following her inclusion on a TSA “suspicious traveler” watch list in 2008; Rosemarie Trockel has lived in Germany her entire life. Cursory research suggests the artists’ affiliation goes little beyond a handful of group exhibitions they were featured in together. Despite the ostensive differences in their backgrounds and artistic practices, their current New York solo exhibitions, located a few... [more]

IT’S EVERYWHERE! I suspect that many of us have experienced those quirky incidents where a hitherto unfamiliar subject is brought to our attention and then it suddenly seems to pop up everywhere. And I mean everywhere. We keep tripping over the now-familiar subject as if making up for lost time.  I first came across Gustave Courbet’s 1866 painting L’origine du monde (Origin of the World) about a year ago when researching material for my upcoming artist residency in Paris. Let’s be frank; once... [more]

The theme of the Walker Art Center’s exhibition “The Quick and the Dead” got personal, quickly, when I observed that an On Kawara date painting near the entry was the same date as an uncle’s birthday. Made by Kawara to mark the passage of time, the ongoing series implies its own end in the artist’s death, just as birthdays imply to many of us that there are only so many left. This exhibition announces its’ intentions to examine The Big Questions of Life at the outset in the title, but... [more]

Material Witness brings together works of art from the Berkeley Art Museum collection, ranging from Francisco Goya's The Disasters of War to new acquisitions such as Carrie Mae Weems's The Capture of Angela, that can be seen as forms of witness. Evidencing truths and questioning commonly held beliefs in modes that vary from reportage to activist response, the works in Material Witness offer distinctive, often critical views of current affairs and cultural memory. Goya's famous series of... [more]
