 Maxa Zoller is the new curator of this year’s Film Sector at Art Basel. Leading up to her film programme this week, Olga Stefan spoke with the Cairo-based curator and lecturer about the blurred lines between film and video art and their implications on modes of viewing; how film can be commodified; political films and their impact at art fairs; and the spaces of free expression in Cairo.   Olga Stefan: Could you describe for us what this all-encompassing category of "moving image" refers...

The city as an artwork. That's quite a broad premise for a group show, even more so considering the increasingly heterogeneous ways in which contemporary artists dabble with public space these days. Visiting the exhibition currently hosted at De Appel, though, I didn't find so much of the mapping, downscale modeling, installation-erecting that so much abounds when it comes to tackling the urban within the gallery space. The zoom is rarely on the “bigger picture”, and maps are quietly... [more]

By now both the New Museum’s Triennial and the Whitney Museum’s biennial have been open long enough for the critical voices of the popular press and blogosphere to have weighed in on the virtues and shortcomings of these highly anticipated exhibitions. I’ve been to both, though rather than add another idiosyncratic opinion to the heavily populated mix I decided to take a cue from the nature of the exhibition itself, and survey the critics. The nature of my looking wasn’t qualitative; I wasn’t... [more]

Two gold chains hang on steely colored pins. They fall perpendicularly, intersecting to form a cross, a compositional reference that is further bolstered by the small golden crucifix linked to the bottom-most tip. A few feet away, a milky marble-like slab rests upon half an egg shell, which sits atop three similar stones, atop an ever-so-slightly warped poster-sized sheet of paper. Mere inches above the egg-stone composition, a family of six porcelain pitchers each hold the protruding twig of a... [more]

  The problem with making an exhibition about what’s not there is that you run the risk of showing nothing at all. Absence is a difficult thing to see, its visibility relying on reference points and shared assumptions. Without the right cues there is a serious risk that viewers won’t notice what they’re meant (not) to see. In “I’m Not Here: An Exhibition Without Francis Alÿs,” a solo-cum-group show at De Appel Jongensschool, curators take this risk, organizing a retrospective of sorts in... [more]

ASU Art Museum's John Spiak curates the Video Project Space at Aqua Art Miami, Wynwood, during the international art fair weekend gathering in Miami, December 3-7, 2008.   Through personal, established relationships, casual encounters, forced institutional interactions, or contact from a safe distance, we often overstep our boundaries. Whether we are conscious or not of our boundary breaking, we are all guilty at one time or another of intruding into other people's lives and space.... [more]
