Interviews are some of our favorite content—and, we think, some of our most enduring. The ArtSlant “Rackroom” is an expanding public archive, filing away unfiltered insight straight from artists themselves. Over the years we’ve invited over 400 (and counting!) artists—emerging and established, some emerging who have since become established—into the Rackroom. These conversations touch upon urgent contemporary issues as well as the personal preoccupations of our interviewees, and they provide a... [more]
Now in its fourth year, Berlin Art Week is fast becoming a fixture in the German capital’s art scene. While blockbuster exhibition is taking over four of the main art institutions, the week is also a moment for smaller galleries, project spaces, and non-profits to shine. And then, of course, there are the art fairs: Art Berlin Contemporary and platforms for emerging art, Positions and Liste. Ubiquitous at any major art event these days, there are also a vast number of talks, panel discussions... [more]
The world of experimental and avant-garde film and video is relatively intimate, its natives comparatively few. A visit to Oberhausen Kurzfilmtage, Europe’s premiere short and experimental film platform, is a step into that world; it's a place populated once a year by an international cadre with a passion for moving image's oldest and most cutting edge format. Where else can you can you drink in a late night bar confident in the knowledge that any of the other 100+ patrons could list the... [more]

I didn’t know what to expect as I entered MOTInternational for Laure Prouvost’s first solo exhibition in Belgium. I knew the artist by reputation and by some of her videos I’d viewed outside the context of their installations—but that did not prepare me for seeing her work . The French born, London-based artist, most recently celebrated for winning the Turner Prize for her installation Wantee (2013), is known for stepping away from linear narratives, unhinging commonplace connections between...

Much has been said about the so-called “Belgian collector.” For captains of industry and local dentists alike, collecting contemporary art almost seems to be part of the Belgian DNA—which explains why the country is reputed for having the highest concentration of art collectors per square kilometer. Yet, as more and more Parisian collectors make the move to Brussels, the Belgian collector is becoming increasingly French. In addition to Art Brussels’ , the strong presence of collectors in...

A Night Out   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Alex Cecchetti, Laure Prouvost at Shanaynay December 3rd, 2012 - December 31st, 2012

In previous articles I've complained about certain aspects of the Parisian art scene, one of which being that it lacks the spark and energy of new things. It's difficult in a conservative country that holds fine art and culture so close to its sense of identity. Last night was fortuitous. The PRs all spoke about Miami. It was very cold and grey in Paris. There was nothing to catch the eye. I walked into Shanaynay to find, among other artworks, a bicycle upturned and surrounded by tools. I... [more]

I once blogged about an exhibition by the artist Amir Mogharabi at Ibid Projects, located at number 35 on the salubrious Hoxton Square; it provoked the most comments I’d ever received, promoting a fierce debate about the venue – anonymous readers argued it was ‘pretentious rubbish’, ‘tawdry’, and others protested it was ‘sublime’. Whether the show was, in the end, of significant merit or not, will never be proven, since art remains an entirely subjective practice, but it does reveal Ibid’s... [more]
