2015's Big 15: The Museum Shows to Look Out For This Year

by The Artslant Team
The position of the Art Museum has become tricky, thanks to the rise of the independent cultural producer, pop-ups and nomadic curators, and the increasing popularity of free public art.

by Christina Catherine Martinez
Though it has proved its mettle in disposable boat construction and DIY prom couture, the most interesting functions of tape are metaphysical. Gangly schoolchildren and polished movie actresses alike take their positions in front of a camera according to bold silver or yellow strips laid out on the floor. Toes on the line, please. Chin up. Now don’t move from that spot. Art Directors and household decorators with low-levels of anal retentiveness plan out their above-sofa picture compositions... [more]
