Scooter LaForge and the Aesthetics of Selfhood

by DARREN JONES
New York-based painter Scooter LaForge eschews the rites of passage predestined by the art world machinery of graduate programs, sanctioned residencies, and gallery hierarchy, in favor of an intuitive, exploratory approach. His decades-long career spans art, fashion and architecture—his ideas applied to canvas, clothing, buildings, and objects—and despite developing supportive networks and collaborations with ideological compatriots across these creative fields, he remains unattached to any one...

Caroline Augusta Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I aim to bring awareness to a concept or cause that doesn’t get the airtime it deserves. The constant stimulation and force-fed nature of our society distracts us from what is truly important in keeping life on Earth alive and well.  Most of the work I make is an emotional response to an injustice I’ve witnessed in everyday life or the media; it raises up a voice that doesn’t always get heard or noticed. My goal is to encourage... [more]

In “The Times,” Artists Make the Media Their Message

by Osman Can Yerebakan
With politically conscious art on the rise, a notable number of artists have turned to as a vessel to convey social and political turmoil. The Gray Lady recently featured in solo exhibitions of Wade Guyton and A.K. Burns, and this year’s Whitney Biennial introduced Julien Nguyen’s depictions of the paper’s front pages as allegorical tableaux and Aliza Nisenbaum’s soothing paintings of domestic life, including a vignette of a couple reading their copy of the Times.

Portrait: Kuwaiti artist Monira al Qadiri on Japanese cartoons and the body as art

by Freunde von Freunden x ArtSlant
  “A lot of my work is about becoming your art,” says Monira al Qadiri. “I’ve had that ever since I was a child. If I really like something, I want to become like it.” Giant noodle bowls and fried shrimp add an extra dash of absurdity to the whole thing, as do molded replicas of her own face. In bringing these cartoons to life she has exaggerated the strangeness and artificiality of their forms. The artist, who is currently based in Amsterdam as a resident at the prestigious... [more]
