Minaa Mohsin Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
Minaa Mohsin.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? We live our lives in the middle of things. The homes we maintain and the items we collect are all documentation of our personal histories for which we seek acknowledgment. Material objects are given life by the meaning we attach to them. With this bestowed power, inanimate objects participate as important decision makers in one’s life. Attachment with objects, specifically household items of utility, fascinates me. By... [more]

(In)visibility in New Black Portraiture: Aria Dean and Hamishi Farah in Dialogue

by Audrey L. Phillips
In March 2016, Los Angeles-based artist and writer Aria Dean penned an essay entitled “Closing the Loop” for The New Inquiry about the white monopolization of feminist selfie art. I remember reading the essay and feeling its urgency and necessity at a time when the spotlight on selfie art and culture was (and still is) dominated by white cis-hetero young women. When I think of the canon of feminist art and the “trailblazers” that paved the way for subsequent generations of women artists, I see... [more]

Brigitta Varadi: Marking Memory

by Andrea Alessi
  In some way, all things are congealed moments in a longer social trajectory. All things are brief deposits of this or that property, photographs that conceal the reality of the motion from which their objecthood is a momentary respite.   —Arjun Appadurai, “The Thing Itself” [1] To hear Brigitta Varadi talk about sheep is to hear her effuse about something bigger than wool, felt, or the declining carpet and farming industries in the remote corner of North West Ireland where she...

Jinhee Park Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
Jinhee received an ArtSlant Prize 2016 Honorable Mention. We’re presenting Jinhee’s work this week at SPRING/BREAK Art Show.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? Well, I don't have any particular messages in making art. Instead, I am responsive to each day and each spot. If I feel sure of myself, I have only to wait for what will be spewed out of the intriguing mystery box. What is an artist’s responsibility? An artist has to realize their own desire,... [more]

Facing the Black Mirror: Michael Holman Owns the Confederate Flag

by Andrea Alessi
SPRING/BREAK, more than 100 curators will feature artworks that explore the dance of identity the artist undergoes—between showing what’s unseen and hiding in plain sight—especially in the face of modern technology, political unrest, and glimmers from ghosts of Art History’s past. ArtSlant will be exhibiting the ArtSlant Prize 2016 Winners at SPRING/BREAK. In expectation of this uniquely site-specific, curatorial fair, we’re featuring interviews with participating curators and artists,... [more]

Who Are the Modern “Creatives”? Social Currency and the Self-Made Artist

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]
