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]

by Lauren McQuade
As I walked up to Andrü Sisson’s studio on the morning of the press preview for his self-produced debut solo show, , I saw what the past few months of collaborating with musician and friend, Rocco DeLuca, must have been like. Sisson sat on the floor of a matte black van parked in front of his studio. Its open shell provided the only source of shade on a cloudless late September day, the sun spitting out the last of summer’s relentless 90-degree heat. DeLuca stood nearby on the sidewalk,... [more]
