Oh London. With your unending ability to hype a party in a shoebox into . If you’ve lived in London for any amount of time, you’ll have to develop a discerning eye for what’s genuinely meritorious of hype, and what’s just flotsam. From today until Saturday, epic photographer and filmmaker Larry Clark, aged 71, is unloading some of his life’s detritus, and will be selling off original photographic prints from his humungous archive of work, out of crate in a fancy London gallery (Simon Lee, at...

When came out in 1995 it kicked up quite a storm. Larry Clark’s debut feature film depicts a group of teenage skate punks smoking dope, drinking excessively, shoplifting, talking nonsense, basically wasting their lives away. The main character, a world class egomaniac named Telly, has unprotected sex with every eleven year old girl he can talk out of her pants, since according to him virginity is the best protection against venereal diseases. At the end of the movie it turns out he himself is... [more]

Back when I lived in Ottawa, Ontario I used to regularly frequent the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, a national museum just for photography which has since been folded into Canada’s National Gallery. It was a shame to see this dedicated space for inquiry into photography’s forms and means dissolve, as it was a place that one could search for meanings in photography both within and alongside the terrain of contemporary art’s recent trends. Silver gelatin prints, for example, are... [more]

      The first thing that grabs you is the gun. Billy Mann, long dead from a suspected Dilaudid overdose, sits on a bed with an arched revolver. He looks towards something just out of frame that is about to be visited by terrible violence; still, he is grinning. Whatever is happening in the frame, the things just out of sight must be worse. Such is the allure of Larry Clark’s photography. Larry Clark’s new retrospective, Kiss The Past Hello, has been largely overshadowed by attendant... [more]

showcases 320 works by major photographers from the seventies, presenting to a French audience the liberal, raunchy and sometimes shocking American culture from this era. The so-called “choc/shock” begins with one room devoted to the “pioneers,” whose socially committed photographs reveals raw, unsophisticated edges of American culture during the 1930s. There, Walker Evans’ influential photographs of the American Depression dating from 1936 are organized in a set of six, including the... [more]

Among a goup show featured this month at the Artist-Xchange on 16th Street is the work of local artist Maureen Shields. Armed with the basic tools of acrylic paints and molded wooden canvases, Shields creates cute childlike images, cuddly creatures and playful school girls. In her paintings, happy little girls play games in their dream world with various imaginary creatures such as a baby deer and a half man, half seahorse. She paints them very flat, but usually with one rich, lively color as a... [more]
