We're always grateful when we can consume art with context—especially at an art fair. Thus, in partnership with VOLTA and GalleryLOG, we're pleased to share this advance look at the processes and inspirations of five... [more]

How Does Frieze Select Its Projects? "Focus" and "Frame" Advisor Jacob Proctor Explains

by The Artslant Team
Special exhibition programming and the curatorial wing of an art fair play an essential role as feeder programs for bringing emerging artists and galleries into the world of high retail.

Metro Manila Meets Dubai: Curator Ringo Bunoan Talks Art Dubai's Philippines Focus

by Danna Lorch
This week Art Dubai will be the first international fair to give contemporary art from the Philippines pride of place, as Ringo Bunoan (an artist, writer, researcher, and curator) curates Marker, the fair’s annual geographically-focused presentation. Under Bunoan’s direction Marker’s 100-square-meter area will concentrate on four artist-run spaces in metro Manila: 98-B, Post Gallery, Project 20, and Thousandfold. Installations by the late Roberto Chabet, widely recognized as the Philippine’s... [more]

Dispatches from Immersion: "It's Renegade!"

by Joel Kuennen
As I was walking through the halls of Moynihan Station, weaving in and out of noir offices, I overheard a reporter repeatedly saying into a flip phone, as if he was relaying the latest from the frontlines, “It’s renegade, renegade!” I chuckled and kept meandering.    Maggie Dunlop at SPRING/BREAK   SPRING/BREAK is indeed a bit of a renegade. It has and continues to do its own thing, being the only curated fair I am aware of that doesn’t take exhibitor fees, but rather asks for a cut of... [more]

In Ryan Mendoza’s Detroit House, Debris of a Financial Collapse Turns into Relief Aid

by Edo Dijksterhuis
Is it a sculpture? A political indictment? A social activist gesture? Or maybe some form of contemporary historiography? It’s not really clear how to define or classify Ryan Mendoza’s . One thing’s for sure, though: it’s not a house.  You could easily be fooled into thinking it is. It’s got a roof, walls, a porch, windows, and a door you can enter through. It lacks, however, neighbors, a path or driveway leading up to it, a connection to the local power grid, a foundation—in short: physical... [more]

Editors' Picks: Art Los Angeles Contemporary 2016

by The Artslant Team
Art Los Angeles Contemporary opens this week—arguably the West Coast's key commercial event for the year, especially for local galleries who feature heavily in the line-up. Looking at artwork in an art fair can be a bit like viewing art on the internet: the structure often strips work of its full effect. To remedy the fatigue of serial image consumption—and give more credit to the artists, looking past their works' obvious marketability and apparent aesthetic trends—we're giving you something...

Miami Art Week Guide, Part I: Art Fairs Aplenty

by The Artslant Team
It’s impossible to keep a Miami Art Week guide “concise.” The number of fairs alone—at last count 21, —will make any list scroll on and on. So we're not even trying. Instead, we’re splitting our guide into two: one for fairs and one for everything else. This guide will get you acquainted with the city’s seasonal guests: those itinerant behemoths that turn up and transform the town for one week out of the year. Unless you’re a masochist (and who knows, you might be, we’re not judging), there’s... [more]

Top Insiders' Tips to Getting into Miami Art Week Parties Without an Invite

by Nadja Sayej
As the glitterati descend upon Florida’s art capital, we'd love to think Art Basel Miami Beach is more than just exclusive parties for rich people in fancy hotels, but the happenings around the fair don't always dissuade this interpretation. This epic art world extravaganza has seen Miley Cyrus decked out in butterfly wings, Amanda Lepore blowing puffy red kisses, and Jay-Z casually perusing the fair's booths. This is where artists swim in the pool drunk with curators who, in turn, run around... [more]
