 “ revels in the unknowable as essential to human experience. The exhibition bears witness to incomplete presences and resonant remainders. It finds in music a measure and a reckoning with these elusive forces and the abyss that lies between.”  —Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla   Gesamtkunstwerk, as German-defined, is a work that sums all arts—aural, visual, and performative—to total a perfect affective state. No other word seems capable of describing the mission of Jennifer Allora... [more]

The Earth breaks along fault lines. Mountains are pushed up; buildings crumble. Active faults are sites of extreme subterranean tension that operate on an unpredictable timeline with potentially devastating environmental, economic, and social aftershocks. To live near a fault is to live with unending uncertainty. Entire cities and nations have suffered when the earth shudders along her lines. All of this would seem like ample fodder for the socially and politically minded artists Allora &... [more]

Much more interesting than the description of the  performance series, which will take place as part of Art Basel and is organized by star-curators Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist, is its call out for participants/performers to take part in it: “If you have an identical twin, use the opportunity to be part of Damien Hirst’s work. War veterans are sought after for part of Santiago Sierra’s performance, and anyone who speaks colloquial British-English and is similar in appearance to Ed...

aims to participate in the dynamic, lively, and complex debates of contemporary critical cultures in Arab societies and localities adjacent to them in Europe. The project is inspired by the momentous historical forces and the emancipatory logics that are currently reshaping debates on civic identities, political subjectivities, cultural strategies, and artistic practices in Arab societies; and is conceived as a response to the various scenarios of rupture between antagonistic political camps,...

The collection is S.M.A.K.’s DNA and reflects the museum’s core identity as the pivot between recent art history and current trends. S.M.A.K.’s acquisition policy has developed organically over the years and has three distinct levels. Firstly, the museum strives to form an ensemble around the oeuvre of a select group of artists. Instead of representing an artist with just a single work, S.M.A.K. aims to collect an oeuvre in depth in order to present it in all its complexity. Secondly, there is... [more]

It is difficult to pull a coherent synopsis out of an event this large. Prospect.1, to the credit of the city of New Orleans and all involved, is a massive undertaking that showcases a vast array of contemporary art, and in so doing, puts this amazing city, in all its glory and decay, on center stage. With the time I spent in New Orleans and at Prospect.1, I feel like I barely got started. I like to dig in and go at my own pace. I did manage to see an incredible amount of incredible work, but...
