How Do Artists Find Gallery Representation? We Asked Galleries and This Is What We Learned

by James Loks
How and why an artist comes to be represented by a gallery is a seemingly mysterious process, one of many parts of the industry that exist behind a veil of secrecy. Yet for an artist who has committed to making a living from their art, it is naturally a topic of some interest, one we wanted to look into a bit further. While our exploration hardly threw the entire process open—if anything it highlighted what an individual and idiosyncratic process establishing gallery representation is—we did... [more]

Art Destination: Why San Antonio Deserves More Attention

by Claudia Arozqueta
This past September, I did a curatorial residency at Casa Chuck in San Antonio, Texas. This was not my first time there (years before I curated an exhibition for the Contemporary Art Month) but, as it always happens when you are installing a show, I barely poked my nose out of the gallery. Happily, during this second visit I had the time to experience the best of San Antonio's arts community. San Antonio has a diverse, vibrant, and welcoming art scene that gets together in ever-fluxing arts... [more]

The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in Berlin

by Nicole Rodríguez Woods
New York City and San Francisco guides too.  Berlin expresses its art scene in many different forms. Different spaces, missions, and structures. This is about the impact of non-profit spaces and the purpose they serve. Though market-driven galleries are growing in prominence, some non-profits have risen to great importance. KW, for example, started as a small artist run non-profit space and is now one of the more influential in the city. The following are some non-profits with varying... [more]

Top 15 Exhibitions in Europe and the Middle East This Fall

by The Artslant Team
It's time to emerge from our summer carapace and get on the gallery trail again. ArtSlant's editors and writers have been sifting through the torrents of press releases and Facebook events to find the best September has to offer—from the big institutes to the alternative art venues that might not be on your radar. How do we decide what makes it into our top 15? Of course, there are many good exhibitions to be found outside of this necessary reduction, but our editorial staff have an eye for art... [more]

The Best Non-Profit Art Spaces in New York

by Joe Bucciero
  “There are eight million stories in the Naked City”—and a decent chunk of them are think pieces about whether or not living (and for our purposes, making art) in New York is still a tenable enterprise. The older generation—the David Byrnes and Patti Smiths, the New York Times—keeps telling us that New York is dead, that we should move somewhere else: “the next Brooklyn,” perhaps, whether that means Detroit, northern New Jersey, or wherever. Despite these obituaries, however, artists keep... [more]

Required Viewing – Chicago: Pictures for a Generation

by Stephanie Cristello
Of the multitude of exhibitions opening this September in Chicago, one stands—or falls—singularly into view. A complete series of work by Maccarone artist Sarah Charlesworth that helped to define the Pictures Generation will be shown for the first time at the Art Institute of Chicago. The series, entitled , features figures falling from great heights, suspended in front of buildings that function more as a frame than as a backdrop—static yet tense. Teasing the weight and reserve of “the fall”... [more]

No Longer Lonely (but maybe still a bit brutal): September Openings Across Los Angeles

by Andrew Berardini
The long languor of summer never truly fades in Los Angeles, but the heat simmers down just enough for the long sunsets to subside into cool nights, when prodigal travelers hurry home from sunstroked beaches and slaving artists vernissage across the city. Autumnal LA, though it certainly colors, hardly chills. Art exhibitions thickly dapple across this considerable town: Giuseppe Penone at Gagosian and Sam Falls at Hannah Hoffman on the 5th. On the 6th, Culver City unbolts with Ryan Mosley and... [more]
