  What are you trying to communicate with your work? It depends on the project I am working on. My work is both figurative and abstract, but above all conceptual. I always work from a theme that appeals to me and will allow me to deepen my research through the creative process. I am interested in the poetic expression that evolves through the theme and the conceptual aspect of the project. What I try to communicate is expressed through the idea, the purpose, as well as the color,... [more]

To Be Bad Is Not to Be Good: Katya Grokhovsky’s Performance Art

by Alicia Eler
Other ArtSlant Prize IX catalogue essays: David Rios Ferreira & Sabato Visconti   Somewhere along the way, we lost it. Maybe it was the election, which ended in a sociopath Twitter addict becoming our president, or perhaps it was the exhaustion that followed. Or maybe it’s just dealing with the business of living. Sometimes it is hard to tell. Artist Katya Grokhovsky has been through it, and she’s come out the other side, but not in the way that you’d expect. Her discovery? A... [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...

A Stranger Comes to Town, and Takes the Art of Endurance to a New Level

by Andrea Alessi
SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2018, more than 100 curators will feature artists and exhibitions that consider the theme: Stranger Comes to Town. It’s been said that all great literature boils down to one of two stories: a hero goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town. “Who and what is this Stranger?” ask SPRING/BREAK curators and founders, Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori. “Is their travel into the unknown always an act of heroism to some, of colonialism or contamination and infiltration to...

For the Culture: Towards Curating Black Art by Aesthetic, Not Struggle

by Jessica Lanay
Unlike recent major shows that are chronological surveys of Black art in the context of political upheaval and communal struggle, the exhibition centers the aesthetics, techniques, and innovation of its artists. Now at the August Wilson Center in Pittsburgh, the exhibition magnifies the interstices of the Black experience that push against the historical watersheds that have come to over-define Black life. The onus of Transformative Space is not to couch Black art as a mere reaction to... [more]
