Speak Your Plural: Chapter One of Slow Frequency

by Stephanie Cristello
Affirmation, fulfillment, declaration; these are all terms used to describe motivational speaking. This form of address is designed for the masses. Though they prey on the singular, all these words refer to an inherent plurality: which is to say, yourself in others. Affirmation is mirrored through encounters, fulfillment is only expressed to a counterpart when it is lacking, and declaration depends on an audience of listeners. Yet, while these definitions point towards self-help culture –... [more]

Against a Constant Sky

by Sarah Hamilton
There are two kinds of road trips: one where you have to get somewhere by a certain time (hotel, family reunion); and the other one where your plans are changeable (misfortune, curiosity). Both have equal ability to produce adventure and boredom, and though the adventure is what you end up taking home to friends and relatives, it’s boredom that’s your constant companion. Once the conversation in the car has died out, or your eyes have tired from reading, you fix your gaze on the horizon, as if... [more]

Sublime Vision

by Katie Addleman
It is difficult not to be moved by the work of Josef Sudek. The Czech photographer, who died in Prague in 1976 at the age of eighty, had such a way with light and eye for composition that common things commonly arranged became testaments to the idea that beauty is everywhere, available to those who can see it. Curated by the Art Gallery of Ontario’s Maia Sutnik, Josef Sudek: The Legacy of a Deeper Vision pulls entirely from the gallery’s own collection, which includes almost 1,000 prints by the... [more]

Way back in 1992, the famous Indian actor-playwright Girish Karnad had directed a movie called ‘Cheluvi’ based on a Kannada folktale. The protagonist was a woman who possessed mystical powers that allowed her to turn into a tree when water was poured on her; a tree that bore flowers with a fragrance so unique and bewitching that selling those flowers became lucrative for her family, who from then on, went on selfishly turning her back and forth into a tree and a woman at their convenience –...

Gustave Baumann's Woodcuts

Gustave Baumann lived in Santa Fe until his death in 1971. Many of Baumann’s most popular prints depict the Southwestern landscape and regional traditions of his beloved New Mexico. At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century there was a renewed interest in the craft of traditional European printmaking and in the color woodcut prints coming from Japan. Many of Baumann’s prints include asymmetrical compositions, bright colors, curving lines, and patterned surfaces that appear to... [more]

John Baldessari: Double Feature

by Devon Caranicas
Three things make me homesick for Los Angeles: Trader Joe's, palm trees and John Baldessari. For artists who inhabit southern California, there is a mythic quality that surrounds the iconic LA artist as not just a pioneer of conceptual art but a pioneer of our art. Naturally, I was beyond thrilled to discover that his new work from 2011 was now on view at Spruth Magers here in Berlin. Not only because I was excited to see how the 80 year old artist has continued to create and evolve, but also... [more]

Drama and Reality

by Collin James Munn
In Berlin-based artist Julian Rosefeldt’s first solo exhibition in Berlin of his photographic work, ARNDT has curated a survey of images from Rosefeldt’s various projects since 2001. Rosefeldt is best known for his video work, in which he stages large theatrical productions of characters enthralled in the mundane activities of everyday life, yet always with an element of surreal uneasiness. The photos on display at ARNDT, however, are rare glimpses of still moments and “behind-the-scenes”... [more]

Martijn Hendriks

by Andrea Alessi
Sometimes artwork forces us to evaluate our critical surroundings, to seek out a comfortable place for observation. Can we accept that we are being given almost nothing in terms of solid footing, no firm landing but a narrow ledge? And if we shift our balance, accept the arrangement and submit to the unresolved tensions of an artwork, can we end up in a less precarious place - perhaps not on level ground, but somewhere we can pause and take in the view? In Martin Hendriks’ at Martin van... [more]
