      Spring art fairs kick off the first week in May here in New York.  Off the heels of March, this season is all about Nada, Frieze and Pulse.

    • Alex Harsley’s Homage To New York

      Monday, 16 April 2012 16:26

      Who is Alex Harsley? You might find him inside the 4th Street Photo Gallery in front of the long lines of black-and-white prints that hang on wooden clips, like clothes on a laundry line. There you will find a beautiful portrait of Muhammad Ali, John Coltrane and Jean Michel Basquiat, as well as numerous landscapes […]

    • Friday’s Links: The Art of Revolution

      Friday, 13 April 2012 16:48

      More than a year has passed since the Egyptian Revolution initiated a falling domino effect throughout the Middle East and the rest of the world. The opening of the new Middle Eastern Art wing serves as proof that the Middle East and its intricate, yet fascinating, conflicts are of interest to a large audience, and […]

    • In Conversation: Cassandra Louise Baker Interviews Devin Troy Strother

      Thursday, 12 April 2012 20:13

      Cassandra Louise Baker: The first time we ever met, I visited your studio in late Fall 2011. You told me this whole meta-narrative about these characters in your painting.   There was an entire back-story that I would not necessarily glean from my initial viewing of the work. At that very moment I realized there was […]

    • Hypertexture: Then & Now

      Tuesday, 10 April 2012 19:03

      In an attempt to chart the criterion for the canon of this still emergent perceptual manifestation in the visual arts, let’s look to forerunners such as Jackson Pollock and David Reed.  Both of whom have made works where the movement of film and/or cinema enters the movement of the paint—or in the case of Frank Stella sculptures […]

    • Grid/Un-Grid

      Monday, 9 April 2012 16:16

      Baras’ small, quirky paintings are varied in application—overworked in parts, encrusted or otherwise incised.  Untitled 8081 looks like caked cement dipped in a puddle of gasoline.  It’s surface is violently scratched and scraped down like a palette, yet unable to get all those old globs fully off.  After grating away to the bottom layer, the […]

    • Week In Review: Wasted In Manhattan

      Friday, 6 April 2012 15:51

      America is, and has been for decades, drowning in a massive pile of trash. We produce trash many times a day. Eventually, it accumulates and we end up not knowing where to put all of it, but in a trashcan. And why is this? Because of excessive consumerism and a state of mind we have […]

    • Berlin Slows Down To Take A Seat

      Thursday, 5 April 2012 20:13

      You cannot visit Berlin without visiting a museum. Some might think this is because of the fabulous collections and great choice of exhibitions constantly offered in the German capital. But, it is also because you don’t necessarily pay for a ticket to enter a museum. You can get it all for free! Why is that? […]

    • Roberto Pugliese’s Sound Installations: A Bi-Continental Review

      Thursday, 5 April 2012 16:12

      If this piece begs the visitor to cross the border of “inside” and “outside” spatial concepts, Roberto’s first project in the U.S. titled A Voice In The Desert (2012), expands space even further; marking the desert of Texas with an installation of 5 square steel frames and as many speakers. The optical and sonic grid […]
