  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Inspired by the work of Brion Gysin, Dan Graham, Genesis P-Orridge, my work proposes a meta-religion based on two main things: rock & roll and mysticism. Functioning like a secret order that emphasizes the spiritual attributes of musical movements like the blues, rasta, Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY), Texan sixties psychedelic rock, or German krautrock, I try to propose a new iconography based on the music and musicians...

Clash of Political Visuals, Part Two

by Ali Fitzgerald
  I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how we forge the symbols and icons of resistance. Last week, during the March for Our Lives, images of Parkland High School student and gun control activist Emma Gonzalez circulated which recall older, lionizing posters of resistance fighters. In fact, her frontal, defiant pose resembles several wartime depictions of Joan of Arc. Like the recent marches, one of the first acts of resistance during the German occupation of France was carried... [more]

Clash of Political Visuals, Part One

by Ali Fitzgerald
  As I spoke about before, France was the birthplace of the lithographic poster as art form. But the Art Nouveau poster gave way to different, more propagandistic uses in the two World Wars. During the German occupation between 1940–1944, the city was awash in German and Vichy propaganda posters and signs, as well as competing images from the resistance. British historian Ian Ousby wrote of that time: Symbols of Paris were painted over and repurposed by the invading army.... [more]

Joan of Arc, Part Two

by Ali Fitzgerald
  During the years of German occupation (1940–1944), the image of Joan of Arc was used both by the collaborationist Vichy government and Charles de Gaulle’s résistance. Vichy leader Phillipe Pétain liked her better than the other, older symbol of the republic, Marianne, because: 1. She wasn’t topless 2. She heard voices and was really, really into god 3. She dressed like a man 4. She was an Anglophobe He painted her as the devout symbol of the Vichy’s fascist, religious... [more]

Joan of Arc, Part One

by Ali Fitzgerald
  Recently I had drinks with a friend and we were discussing the removal of Confederate statues in the States. I asked her if there were any similar discussions about statues in Paris, and which ones she might personally remove. I’ve talked a bit about Marianne as a symbol of the French Republic, and how her image has been politicized. But there’s another woman, not fictional, who also occupies the role of useful political symbol or tool. French politicians across the spectrum lay... [more]

Creatures Like Us: The Drawings of David Rios Ferreira

by Jessica Lanay
Other ArtSlant Prize IX catalogue essays: Sabato Visconti & Katya Grokhovsky   The journeying lines that dominate David Rios Ferreira’s two-dimensional assemblage works, like an EKG reading or the longitudinal and latitudinal lines in a map, are enchanted with the force of their potential. Each vector loops, and builds, like a vine; they fall into one another’s paths, creating rich dimensions in each drawing. Forged together with cartoony shapes in vibrant colors, they create top...
