      One Burning Question With Matt Mignanelli

      Friday, 13 June 2014 09:00

      NY Arts Magazine: Who is your most cherished “Art Crush?”  Matt Mignanelli: I’ve long admired the works of Ellsworth Kelly. The paintings have always spoken to me in a unique way, leaving memorable impressions with each encounter. There is a calm for me within his simplicity. His works exude a power that commands a space, […]

      Body Double: Brice Dellsperger at Team Gallery

      Thursday, 12 June 2014 21:29

      The camera zooms in on small notepad and a pen poised motionless over the page, while the sounds of a pen scratching paper play over the film’s audio. This disconnect between image and reality is a frequent occurrence in the works of Brice Dellsperger’s evocative series, “Body Double: Vous N’en Croirez Pas Vos Yeux,” currently […]

      Art In Search of Universal Dialogue with Jackie Sleper

      Thursday, 12 June 2014 09:00

      “Jackie Sleper does not match the traditional profile of a Dutch artist. Unlike her historical counterparts, with their austere Calvinist roots and dour palette, Sleper’s work celebrates life with bursts of color and a quixotic co-mingling of sculptural embellishments. She draws inspiration from her world travels, and the wide-ranging cultures she seeks to embrace while […]

      Volta10 Preview: Melanie Bonajo

      Thursday, 12 June 2014 09:00

      Captivated by concepts of the divine, Melanie Bonajo explores the spiritual emptiness of her generation through photographs, performances, and films. She questions our shifting relationship with nature and tries to understand existential questions by looking at our domestic situation and changes to humanity at large. Her installations place the viewer firmly within an ‘active’ role. […]

      Tracing Identity with Namsa Leuba

      Wednesday, 11 June 2014 09:00

      Emese Krunak-Hajagos: The topic for this year’s Contact Festival is Identity, involving ancestry, history and society, and how the individual’s sense of self is shaped by them. How do you feel about your mixed African-European background? Namsa Leuba: I think to be a mix of cultures is a great wealth. I am an African-European, born […]

      Night Bloom: New Work by Samuel Payne

      Tuesday, 10 June 2014 09:00

      There are a number of people making work right now that aptly dig holes into what a sculpture or installation can be, purposefully pointing fingers at the ways we encounter art in the round. I am thinking specifically about a show by Daniel Turner that is coming to an end at Team Gallery, an experience […]

      Five Upcoming Museum Shows to Watch

      Monday, 9 June 2014 09:00

      As the summer weather starts to heat up, there are often very few places in the city to escape the oppressive heat. You could stay in your apartment, locked away for the entire season next to your AC unit with your computer, or you could make a mad dash out of your door to somewhere […]

      One Burning Question with Trudy Benson

      Friday, 6 June 2014 09:00

      NY Arts Magazine: Please tell us something about your work that often gets overlooked by the unfamiliar or untrained eye. Trudy Benson: I’ve had more than a few studio visits start out with some kind of, “Oh, I get it now,” comment. It’s obvious that the most common mode of consumption of painting today is via […]

      If you made it to Bushwick this past weekend for the open studios extravaganza, chances are you are just returning to your senses right about now. The intensity of the event continues to grow exponentially each year. Uninvolved locals find their neighborhood suffocatingly swamped with people, insiders wander around with their heads down attending to […]

      Obvious Child at Rooftop Films

      Wednesday, 4 June 2014 09:00

      There was no place better than Industry City for a screening of a film so central to Brooklyn. Set up in between looming warehouses, the atmosphere of the opening night for Rooftop Films’ 2014 Summer Series was relaxed as people mingled and found seats. Indie and Brooklyn-based band Rumors performed a long thirty-minute set preceding the […]
