• Michael Joo, Exit From The House Of Being

      Wednesday, 11 July 2012 16:15

      Joo applies this highly reflexive paint like a defiant Abstract Expressionist confronting his oppressors. The paint is at once a motif of socio-politicised territoriality; an issue of political divides and boundaries that become physical. It also serves a conceptually multifaceted purpose as the paint works to tie space together—even the face of the shields to […]

    • In Conversation: Amanda Church Interviews Gary Petersen

      Tuesday, 10 July 2012 14:33

      GP: I’m not sure if art (and I speak of visual art) has much of an impact on the non- art person these days. And yet the irony is that the art world is bigger than ever! I see the young more influenced by video games than art. But art is there for anyone who wants to look and […]

    • All The Boys and Girls

      Monday, 9 July 2012 15:43

      All The Boys and Girls brings together the work of Ben Alper and Judith Shimer in an intimate meditation on the passage of time and the passing of us, an exploration of the way in which we fulfill our desire to capture and thereby preserve our own fleeting experiences with visual records that offer us […]

    • Nothing Like I Planned: The Art of John Mellencamp

      Friday, 6 July 2012 15:52

      Many of Mellencamp’s paintings are portraits of anonymous subjects known only to the artist.  However the varied facial expressions trigger a curiosity that becomes a desire which takes one into the medium and surface of the painting itself, showing how visually arresting subject matter does not have to be drawn from a commonly-known sign system.  […]

    • In Conversation: Matt Jones Interviews Kadar Brock

      Tuesday, 3 July 2012 14:49

      In regards to art history, I think it’s both linear and simultaneous. I mean, at this moment all information and art is always already present, and it’s all interrelated to what we make now, like some non-prioritized google search, like buoys on the ocean. Of course, I have a team of artists I want to […]

    • UK By Hand

      Friday, 29 June 2012 15:38

        Scavenging bricks and wood for kiln-building, camping overnight at outdoor firing sites, throwing hundreds of pots a day, and making your own pottery tools. It’s difficult to imagine students embarking on a ceramics course like this today. Yet for the last half-century, teaching ‘hands-on’ skills to ensure self-sufficiency as a working potter was the […]

    • Paris No Maps

      Thursday, 28 June 2012 15:37

      This story begins unlike the other ones – with a noise in the night. Not the usual racket of nighttime sirens, traffic passing monotonously in the rain – No: doors slamming, electric saws, the spiky hiss of a welding torch. Is someone breaking in to the Archives? A bureaucrat from the Museum staging a midnight […]

    • In Conversation: Joshua Abelow Interviews Ted Gahl

      Tuesday, 26 June 2012 16:14

      Joshua Abelow: One of the things I like about your work is that it is both abstract and figurative.  Can you elaborate on how you began working this way? Ted Gahl: I’ve always responded to both kinds of work. Like a lot of people who paint and draw, I grew up trying to represent the […]
