• Despair And The Decoding of Duchamp’s Fresh Widow

      Wednesday, 4 April 2012 20:47

      Of course, we know that Rose Selavy did not really exist. Rather, she was an early attempt by the artist to create a female alter ego for himself through the use of a pseudonym. The fictitious name and copyright were carefully printed in Helvetica across a small wooden base that supported a modest French window […]

    • In The Collector’s Salon

      Wednesday, 4 April 2012 20:21

      In a sense, then, Matisse and Picasso, at that time mostly unknown, along with Raoul du Gardier and Henri Manguin–now more obscure than ever–were a substitute, as the Steins must themselves have been to ambitious artists in search of ready money. It was a good match, nevertheless: the Steins, subject to a Jamesian revelation of […]

    • Artistic Sabotage In The Baloney Republic

      Tuesday, 3 April 2012 21:17

      Hungarian visual arts have hardly been a roaring international success over the last twenty years, especially when we consider the truly remarkable theater, music, and cinema produced here. Still, Hungarian visual artists such as the Little Warsaw group, Róza El-Hassan, and Hajnal Németh participated in major European and international exhibitions; some artists attained a modicum […]

    • In Conversation: Jean Manuel Beauchamp Interviews John Zinsser

      Tuesday, 3 April 2012 15:26

      John Zinsser: Yes, “studio time.” Here in Greenpoint, the sky is always grey, depressive—it’s “nowhere time.” There is always this urgency to do something. But it’s so impossible to do anything. So I try to find these “devices” to keep moving. A lot of the little sketches are done as just sort of “warm-ups.” To […]

    • On Self-Determination

      Monday, 2 April 2012 16:56

      Power is a function of its privileged ruling elite. To be properly ‘British’ is to submit to English hierarchy and to recognize, affirm and assert the glory of its value system. This is achieved domestically on a daily basis within ‘British’ education and cultural institutions. Those who oppose this supremacist ideology are criticized for not […]

    • Week In Review: Photography and Its Discontents

      Friday, 30 March 2012 18:04

      Is the work that was once considered to be revolutionary now banal and overrated? What is happening photography-wise in the city? A lot seems to be recycled, old and nostalgic photography that the public will appreciate. Don’t get me wrong, they are still powerful and important pieces, but they belong to a different era. So, […]

    • The Opposite of Voyeurism

      Thursday, 29 March 2012 18:45

      NY ARTS:  This recent body of work at Dodge Gallery references history, kitsch and the body in a declarative manner.  Do you see these as voyeuristic? Ellen Harvey:  I think these works are about the opposite of voyeurism.  Voyeurism for me is about intruding into someone else’s private world — the forbidden thrill of spying out […]

    • The State of Sculpture at Palm Springs Art Museum

      Wednesday, 28 March 2012 21:46

      Happenstance, was stopping in at a Farmer’s market for among items a gallon of high octane green juice grounded with grapefruit. My friend had offered, that a nearby sign indicating a new branch of the Palms Springs Art Museum here in Palm Desert was misleading as the new location for the mother ship operation did […]

    • Occupy Naples Meets Occupy Museums

      Tuesday, 27 March 2012 15:53

      Today, the request for new public spaces to share art and experiences is raising worldwide. In New York, Occupy Museums, the offshoot to Occupy Wall Street launched last November, set a “Free Art for Fair Exchange” during the Armory week, giving free art to passengers just in front of the famous piers 92-94. The New […]

    • In Conversation: Jennifer Samet Interviews Elena Sisto

      Monday, 26 March 2012 17:52

      Then I finished the first group of “Girl” paintings I felt that I needed to work from life to get more ideas about light and color. I prefer not to work from a model unless it is family and they were sick of it. So I started working from objects. I became interested in the […]
