The End of Food and the Art World

by Audrey L. Phillips
Catastrophic hurricanes, unprecedented flooding, and constant record-breaking highs and lows make it hard to ignore the very real changes occurring as a result of global warming. David Wallace-Wells’ popular July cover story details worst-case scenarios that break down exactly how our day-to-day living could be affected. Wallace-Wells claims most of the “anxiety about global warming” omits the “significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives” and goes on to list many... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My current practice investigates the contemporary condition of the image. The body of work produced over the past two years allows the object-of-an-image to poke through the surface of the picture to assert its equality. And by so doing it rebels against its utilitarian service in the picture/object composite of the image sanctioned by the current norm.  What is an artist’s responsibility? To affectively use reason in the... [more]

Quantum Natives: Meet the Artist Crew Charting New Digital Terrain

by Siobhan Leddy
It’s easy to get lost in the Quantum Natives universe. The global-collective-slash-platform-slash-record-label is tricky to summarize, and even trickier to navigate. Fortunately, though, there’s a map. Inspired by the world-building practices of fantasy and science fiction, this strange, debased Google Map allows the visitor to meander through its wash of dreamy colors and unidentifiable symbols. Each project icon floats ominously above its surface, casting long gothic shadows. This is... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My attempt is to rewrite these familiar objects with new meaning and currency. What is an artist’s responsibility? To delve inward, outward, on a perilous journey, resurfacing to illuminate all that one has discovered, to solely bring attention to a higher purpose.   I brought a Pyramid from Egypt to our first meeting, 2017, Acrylic paint, cotton cloth napkins, china marker and mdf board.    Show us the...

Ways of Seeing Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party”

by Sally Deskins
“My lifelong goal has been to overcome the erasure that has eclipsed the contributions of so many women,” said Judy Chicago on the occasion of two new exhibitions examining the production of her best-known work, The Dinner Party. These exhibitions, currently at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., and the Brooklyn Museum, uniquely present the seminal artwork in a now unfamiliar way, recalling the authentic grit of the feminist process, and the inclusive approach of its...

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Naomi Cook

by Christian Petersen
Montreal-based multi-media artist Naomi Cook says her work has grown out of an interest in “engravings, sound, and visual representations of data.” Her eclectic work represents a true integration of traditional techniques with modern thinking and concepts. , a series in which Cook digitally scans her drawings and converts them to sound, is but one clear example of this fusion. Her incorporation of multiple mediums into her projects is mirrored by the diversity of her subject matter. These... [more]

Refugee Artists Take Control of Their Representation in a New Exhibition

by Claudia Arozqueta and Rodrigo Azaola
“A piece of hell,” is how one refugee, stranded in legal limbo on the isolated Pacific island of Nauru, describes the situation. It’s a mild epithet for the ordeal that asylum seekers endure to achieve their right to not be persecuted or annihilated. Not since the Second World War has there been such a massive number of displaced people—the number is currently larger than the entire population of the United Kingdom. But we seldom hear or see these people individually, and even less often... [more]
