The Female Gaze is So Hot Right Now: Two Shows Look at Women in Art and Erotica

by Olivia B. Murphy
A cursory glance through the internet will return many results for that buzzy phrase “the female gaze,” from unlikable heroines finally getting their heyday on screen, to the hyper-feminine aesthetic of young women artists of Instagram, to gallery shows and museum exhibitions devoted entirely to women-identifying artists making work that deals with sexually explicit content. But it seems we’ve settled comfortably into using this moniker, this “female gaze,” to label just about anything made by... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I’m interested in asking questions and opening up dialogues with my work. My practice is centered around the construct of gender and its interplay with other social categorizations and power differentials. I want my work to be part of furthering the discourse surrounding women’s rights, women’s sexual agency, pornography, pleasure and the body within the framework of the Post-Internet age. What is an artist’s... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Jessica Dolence

by Christian Petersen
Seattle-based new media artist and designer Jessica Dolence creates hypnotic digital decorations and ornamentations that transform and subvert both physical and digital spaces. Her works’ rich, cyber-baroque opulence functions as a radiant facade for a deeper political message of CyberFeminism. Part of Dolence’s creative motivation is to add an “overtly feminized” aesthetic to the “male dominated landscape” of the internet. Two of the biggest inspirations in developing the style and message... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I’d like people to doubt whether the things, or the world, they think is real is truly real. I make my artworks with elements causing viewers to have an illusion and to feel a slight discomfort like doubt or incongruity. I started my artistic activity when I moved to New York from Japan. What I realized by pursuing my art is that it was about my own feelings since I came to NY: I was a stranger feeling uncomfortable. When I was... [more]

Jim Shaw Transforms a Former Masonic Temple into a Postmodern Hellscape

by Sola Agustsson
One can’t help but think of the current political climate when looking at Jim Shaw’s apocalyptic installation , one of two inaugural exhibitions at the new Marciano Art Foundation in Central LA. The Scottish Rite Freemasons, the previous owners of the building, left behind an eclectic collection of set designs, paintings, wigs, and costumes they used in their rituals. These artifacts were perfect materials for Shaw, whose work has explored religion, the occult, and the esoteric for three... [more]

Portrait: Tomás Saraceno Wants to Fly While Keeping His Feet on the Ground

by Freunde von Freunden x ArtSlant
Freunde von Freunden. Art and science are often described as two opposing disciplines. Looking at the practice of the Argentinian artist and trained architect Tomás Saraceno, such a differentiation is quickly disproved. Climbing one of his larger-than-life installations feels like becoming part of a scientific speculation about alternative habitats—one senses the often disregarded correlation of the human body and its environment in a new way. Be it his Cloud Cities, spectacular... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Monia Ben Hamouda

by Christian Petersen
Milan-based artist Monia Ben Hamouda may not seem like a “web artist” in the traditional sense because her work isn’t primarily about or made to be specifically displayed online. But it’s also true that what constitutes a net, web, or new media artist today is increasingly hard to define. Ben Hamouda’s work has an almost intangible quality that evokes similar feelings to art more traditionally deemed “internet art.” While much of her work could be considered sculptural in the strict,...
