by The Artslant Team
Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Caroline Dahlberg.   What are you trying to communicate with your work?

Although, in terms of intimacy,... [more]

Anna Fafaliou Answers 5 Questions

Anna Fafaliou.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? The nature of my work has always been around the relationship between object, memory, and identity.

Txema Novelo Answers 5 Questions

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Inspired by the work of Brion Gysin, Dan Graham, Genesis P-Orridge, my work proposes a meta-religion based on two main things: rock & roll and mysticism. Functioning like a secret order that emphasizes the spiritual attributes of musical movements like the blues, rasta, Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY), Texan sixties psychedelic rock, or German krautrock, I try to propose a new iconography based on the music and musicians...

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]

A Dog in the Fight: The Exploitation of Animals in Art

by DARREN JONES
We kill them, hunt them, destroy their habitats and communities, display them, wear, buy, use, and discard them. Occasionally we attempt to save them from what we've done. Animals are the original victims of helotry, oppressed and wherever possible forced into servitude in pursuit of humankind’s betterment. Our presumption of ownership, and mistreatment in the name of religious rituals, clothing, entertainment, or work is the eternal hallmark of our depravity. In the art world, animals, dead... [more]

Lauren C. Sudbrink Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
Lauren C. Sudbrink.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? As an artist, musician, and performer my work is concerned with the possibilities of social engagement. Drawing on my early work in photography, my practice seeks to examine and assert the notion that art is never passive or static, but a constellation of systems and processes that determine, affirm, and condition our experiences. On account of this, my work is always political and is concerned as much with... [more]
