In a Gentrifying London Neighborhood, Artists Connect Personal and Global Displacement

by Danyel Ferrari
It’s a decidedly vulnerable act many of us have experienced: the frantic search for something in your bag, bent over or on your knees in airport or a train station, personal articles spread out around you as you hunt for missing keys or passport, maybe trying to keep certain items hidden—tampons, condoms, echoes of bodies and sexuality deemed too personal for public exposure.

In 2016, Women Artists Led the Way in New Media

by Andrea Alessi
A couple weeks ago I asked Christian Petersen, who writes the fortnightly “Wednesday Web Artist of the Week” column, to pick his favorite artist interviews of 2016. For his edification, I emailed over a list of the year’s best-read pieces, which, I keenly observed, comprised all women artists. Oh, “it’s gonna be ALLL ladies for sure,” he shot back. I asked if he had any reflections on what he learned interviewing 25 new media artists and curators this year. “What I’ve really taken away from the column is that the world of new media art is home...

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, Ivory Gold Slaves, 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, passing a spliff back and forth a couple of times, laughing and chatting, befo... [more]
