Be thankful for all the wonderful moments that you may experience in life thanks to art. And most important of all, do not take it too seriously.   Pablo Carpio, Lines and spaces. No. 5,... [more]

James Bridle’s Self-Driving Car Steers Into Slippery Questions About Automation

by Benjamin Busch
According to artist, writer, and theorist James Bridle, the autonomous car and the issues it raises stand in for many of the questions facing humanity today: what will ultimately result from our relationship with technology and artificial intelligence?

Bridle, whose work spans a variety of topics... [more]

Rana Siegel Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I don’t set out to communicate something in particular—it’s not so intentional or what directs my work; rather, communication/meaning grows out from an intuitive process of making that’s tactile and responsive. It emerges from an exchange, like a conversation; it’s somatic, being realized through the body, like dance or music. The work is a combination of the process, or the performance as I like to call it, and the “thing” that’s... [more]

Anicka Yi: Life is Cheap

by Joel Kuennen
Anicka Yi, the recipient of the 2016 Hugo Boss Prize, opened consisting of three works, Lifestyle Wars, Immigrant Caucus, and Force Majeure, at the Guggenheim on April 21, 2017. The exhibition title is one part indictment, one part plea. “Life is cheap” is usually said with a quiet lilt; eyes down, a slight shake of the head. The disgust is projected both outward and inward.
