      Community Organisms: Charlotte Meyer talks with Oded Hirsch

      Wednesday, 21 August 2013 20:38

      Charlotte Meyer: Your work has incorporated, and mainly been shot in the Israeli landscape. Your ideas have included raising something, a tractor from the earth in your most recent film elevating your father onto a high platform in your 2009 video 50 Blue, and saving somebody, as in the hanging entangled parachutist in Nothing New […]

      Into the Light by Sandy Kim from Pogo Books

      Monday, 19 August 2013 18:58

      A rainbow opens like a pink-red mouth across the sky. A man crouches in front of a lit-up fridge like it’s an oasis of light in the dark room. Light like yellow sweat is drying on a man’s face. In a self-portrait, Kim sticks out her tongue and a wave of reflected light fans out behind her […]

This June, the CA2M (Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo) in the town of Móstoles near Madrid, hosted “Speculating on Change”–an enormously wide brief during these very interesting times.

      Tuesday, 13 August 2013 09:20

      The blue hour eased itself into the end of what had turned out to be a beautiful day despite a rainy morning.

      Thursday, 8 August 2013 09:00

      1. Eh, voilà! Inside the commune mailbox is an old fashioned, hefty brown flat packed with books from Antenne Publishing in London. All of them are by or about one Victor Boullet, a migrant artist with a French name, who claims to be of Scottish origin but was brought up in Norway, and is now waving […]

      Irena Jurek talks Painting and War with Caitlin Cherry

      Wednesday, 7 August 2013 09:00

      Irena Jurek: You hang your paintings off meat hooks, place them on pedestals, or even catapult them. Within all of your paintings there’s this idea of painting as object. Caitlin Cherry: At the core of it, there is this impulse to take traditional painting on stretchers and alter the way its displayed. I feel like […]

      Leah Oates: How did you become an artist and what is your family background?  Kristen Copham: I have identified myself as an artist for as long as I can remember.  I had strong drawing skills as a kid, so I benefited from early encouragement.  I now find the title to be a little vague and commonplace, […]

      Thursday, 1 August 2013 19:25

      There were forty galleries that participated at artMRKT.  From New York, to Beverly Hills, to St. Petersburg they all migrated to a singular billowing white tent with one collective goal in mind: to sell. I walk in a little unsteadily. The tent hums with activity. I feel as if I have just entered a hive—a […]

      Leah Oates Interviews Brian Getnick

      Wednesday, 31 July 2013 09:00

      Leah Oates: How did you become an artist and what is your family background? Brian Getnick: Art for me is a way of joining thoughts that might not belong together in any other discourse. When you make art, you can actualize these thoughts into forms and create models where they are indisputably united. I like […]
