  With its annual Hors Les Murs programming, FIAC is once more transforming Paris into a  with art spread citywide, well beyond the glass domes of the Grand Palais. Here you’ll find a suggested promenade replete with the best artful stops outside the fair’s walls. Follow my itinerary, or in the true spirit of Baudelaire’s flâneur, go ahead and wander, get lost, and see what you find—you’re sure to stumble upon some art!   Dan Graham, Passage Intime, 2015.

Itching for something sweet, I visited a bakery near my apartment where I struck up a conversation with the barista who was curious about my presence in Paris. Sitting within earshot was a woman who, overhearing me explain my project, suddenly exclaimed: “you have to meet Georges!!! He’s in Paris for the weekend and... [more]

With an Urban Gaze, Valérie Jouve Confronts Manufactured Divides   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Valerie Jouve at Jeu de Paume June 2nd, 2015 - September 27th, 2015
Posted 8/31/15
In a time of rampant gentrification and widening socio-economic gaps, Valérie Jouve has storied the fraught relationship between the human body and the metropolis, imagining the latter as a theater in which her protagonists are behooved to adapt. Subjects with reclined heads, stiff facial expressions, or confident postures, their bodies caught in motion, create a narrative that wavers between survival and surrender in her Jeu De Paume retrospective, , which spans a career largely dedicated to...

Upon meeting her, the first thing that struck me, after her heart-warming hospitality, was the tattoo on her forearm. I asked candidly: “What is ‘hiraeth’?” I was far from expecting that the answer I would receive would lead me to naming this iteration of Tales of a Non-Country after that conversation. Similar to the Galician word “saudade,” “hiraeth”... [more]

I remember him saying that in order to get to the crux of a person’s story, you should break bread with them, live with them for a few days and build an intimate connection. Intimacy is an act of bravery. It requires transcending... [more]

When I started “Tales of a Non-Country,” food played a key role in some of the earlier works. I produced still lifes, paired with reconstructed archival images that spoke to the nature of the historical recollection. With this new chapter in the tales, I want to reduce the level of mediation that... [more]
You can find more information about ArtSlant's Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency here.   Walking through Parisian streets is at once a slalom through slurs of clichés, but also an invitation to careen through chance encounters. As I continue my immersion in the city, I began revisiting Henry Miller, and specifically Tropic of Cancer. I came across lines that rang loudly in my mind: Paris is simply an artificial stage, a revolving stage that permits the spectator to glimpse all phases... [more]

The mandate, which was sealed by the two European countries’... [more]

Tina Barney at Paul Kasmin Gallery - 10th Ave May 7th, 2015 - June 20th, 2015
Posted 5/19/15
Famed for her portrayal of the upper class in New York, New England, and Long Island, Tina Barney’s work is an ethnographic study of the bourgeoisie. The eleven works on view in this retrospective are snapshots from a play where if one stares long enough, one might hear the muffled dialogue of Barney’s subjects travel through time. With shots capturing characters in mid-motion, such as  (1985), the viewer is pulled into the scene right before a significant event is about to occur. At first... [more]
