“Good Art Always Gives”: Alvaro Barrington’s Generous First Solo at PS1

by Cristine Brache
Brooklyn-based artist Alvaro Barrington views Marcus Garvey as “an abstract avatar...like a saint or a north star of some sort.” It’s one of the things that drew him to London, where he attended the Slade School of Fine Art for graduate school in 2015—and where I befriended him. He describes his time there as a “pilgrimage,” often citing Garvey’s life in London in relation to the body of work he made there: [Garvey] died poor in London. It wasn’t until decades later that Jamaica—where he was... [more]

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

Her incorporation of multiple mediums into her projects is mirrored by the diversity of her subject matter. These... [more]

Aimee Gilmore Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Even now while reflecting back, it is almost impossible to comprehend growing a human life inside me. Carrying her. Nurturing her. Protecting her. My body acclimated; my skin stretched, my womb expanded, my bones strengthened, my mind prepared. What you can only know after is that you will never actually be prepared. Other mothers don’t tell you the truth about labor. How can they? It is practically indescribable. It is a visceral... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Katie Torn

by Christian Petersen
New York-based new media artist Katie Torn makes work suspended in limbo somewhere between our physical and digital realities, as she seamlessly synthesizes filmed or photographed sculptural objects with digitally generated forms. There is strange alchemy at work in Torn’s aesthetic, which fuses disposable cultural touchstones of the 80s and 90s with complex, surrealist compositions and ideas. Her work is simultaneously joyful and solemn, perfectly reflecting her love/hate relationship with the... [more]
