Girl on Girl: The New Book Exploring the Female Gaze in Photography

by The Artslant Team
What does it mean for a woman to pick up a camera and point it at herself, or at another woman? Is there something unique to be found behind the lens, in the gaze of the female photographer? is an ambitious new book that sets out, if not to resolve this question, then to open it up, to unfold it through the exercise of prolonged looking. Over a year and a half, arts journalist Charlotte Jansen (who is, full disclosure, a former editor of this publication) interviewed 40 female artists from... [more]

Sarp Kerem Yavuz Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
  What are you trying to communicate with your work? For the past three, maybe four years, I have been trying to find a way to criticize political Islam, particularly as it is employed by the Turkish government. I use traditional Islamic and Ottoman patterns to challenge the government's neo-Ottoman rhetoric and address some the oppression, injustice, and violence people are experiencing in the region. However, the broader issue I have been attempting to discuss for as long as I... [more]

See Malick Sidibé’s Portraits the Way His Subjects Did in the 1960s

by Sola Agustsson
Malick Sidibé’s striking images of the Malian rock-and-roll scene have been widely exhibited, though rarely in the form he originally sold to his subjects. After late-night parties, guests would come to Sidibé’s photography studio to place orders for their portraits he’d taken earlier that evening. They did this, he claimed, partly because his studio had electricity, a luxury at the time. He often worked after hours developing chemises (French for “sleeves”)—small proof prints arranged in...

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Shawné Michaelain Holloway

by Christian Petersen
Shawné Michaelain Holloway is a new media artist currently based in Chicago. Her deeply personal work, which often casts its unflinching lens onto the artist herself, boldly addresses the intersections of race, feminism, and sexuality in the internet age. She sees simply logging onto the internet as a political gesture that can be imbued with intentionality. Holloway asks important questions about our immersion and participation in a digital world that we all take for granted, but don’t... [more]

Postcommodity’s Latest Installation Confronts Viewers with Fears at the U.S. Border

by Zachary Small
The darkness has long been a home for fear. Our avoidance of nighttime is instinctual, Darwinian. We cannot know what we cannot see. The formlessness of that unknown drives our imaginations to sculpt unnerving representations of evil. Demons, nightmares, and myths roam the night, serving as a mindful warning to children who would otherwise adventure into the darkness. Survival is a game best played in the light. But what happens when your only chance of survival is in the dark? When your... [more]

Samantha Harvey Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I want my work to act as a bridge between political moments and the public discourse. Can this be addressed through a nonrepresentational rhetoric, one that punctures the art world bubble and into the mainstream? Seeking to present news and current issues through an emotive standpoint, whether or not the viewer agrees with my standpoint, it is important that a dialogue can be created and shared through an open discourse surrounding...
