You’ve likely seen it; you may have signed it—if you were fast enough. What started out as a group text between ten arts professionals in late October quickly turned into a letter signed by almost 9,500 individually verified people condemning power abuses in the field. The original group chat, started over WhatsApp in the wake of recent sexual assault allegations made against co-publisher Knight Landesman, swiftly grew to 124 members. And within 72 hours commiseration had turned into... [more]

In 2009, Cheim & Read hung the provocative group show  Women Look at Women, which showcased women artists taking control of their own images. In an encore presentation this summer, women artists turn their gaze this time toward men, reversing one of art’s most long-standing power structures. The Female Gaze Part II: Women Look at Men brings together work from 32 artists, all utilizing the subject of men, or the male body, as a way to confront, or even turn the tables on the Male Gaze, which...

Now in its fourth year, Berlin Art Week is fast becoming a fixture in the German capital’s art scene. While blockbuster exhibition is taking over four of the main art institutions, the week is also a moment for smaller galleries, project spaces, and non-profits to shine. And then, of course, there are the art fairs: Art Berlin Contemporary and platforms for emerging art, Positions and Liste. Ubiquitous at any major art event these days, there are also a vast number of talks, panel discussions... [more]

Something unusual is happening to visitors’ attentions in the Van Abbemuseum’s fourth and final installment of Play Van Abbe, an 18-month exhibition program considering artists and exhibition makers as diverse “players” within the museum. The current exhibition adds further players to the roster, putting the museum-going behaviors of viewers up for scrutiny. There’s no shortage of art that relies on or even exploits the viewer, but here it’s the exhibition using its visitors. The artwork on the... [more]

IT’S EVERYWHERE! I suspect that many of us have experienced those quirky incidents where a hitherto unfamiliar subject is brought to our attention and then it suddenly seems to pop up everywhere. And I mean everywhere. We keep tripping over the now-familiar subject as if making up for lost time.  I first came across Gustave Courbet’s 1866 painting L’origine du monde (Origin of the World) about a year ago when researching material for my upcoming artist residency in Paris. Let’s be frank; once... [more]

REVIEW: Peace Initiative at Frost   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Marina Abramovic, Laurie Anderson, Chuck Close, Michele Oka Doner, Jenny Holzer, Anish Kapoor, Bill Viola at The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum October 9th, 2009 - January 10th, 2010
Posted 11/15/09
In this diverse exhibit, art is being used as a tool for social change with the difficult task of motivating people to pursue peace in their lives using the Dalai Lama as example.  This is no easy undertaking when one considers just some of the reasons we devise to be combative, heavy topics such as territory, religion, race, class division, and gender. In The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama, 45 artists reflect His Holiness’ pacific message. Upon entering the Frost... [more]

New York is difficult to fence in. It's offensively arrogant and perplexingly tolerant. Erotically alluring and nauseating repulsive. An oxygen tank for thoughts, and quicksand for illusions. Sentimental Samaritan and merciless lyncher. Empty talk at predictable receptions, and genuine interest in unlikely situations. Voluptuous muse, and flat canvas. Cool business card, target oriented CV, brief acquaintance, entertaining fuck, miserable marriage, harmonic partnership and lifelong... [more]
