Freedom> Entrapment> Rapture: Mobility in In the Absence of a Body and Cuban Virtualities

an Essay by Vanessa Gravenor     Is liberation a blessing, or a curse? A curse disguised as a blessing, or a blessing feared as a curse? Zymunt Bauman[1]       I. The Internet is as anarchist zone where virtual creolization and dissolution of cultural boarders can occur ad infinitum facilitating intellectual freedom by […]

From the Road: Slippery Slope

If someone slips on a banana peel in a forest and no one sees it, does anyone laugh? The current exhibition at Atlanta Contemporary Art Center walks us dangerously close to the banana peel. We are the sucker about to unwittingly step onto the banana peel, and the audience waits with bated breath for us […]

Echo: Jackie Saccoccio at Corbett vs. Dempsey

By Kevin Blake   Suddenly, and with little warning, the sun came out. After months of winter grey, the yellows pierced the clouds, warming surfaces in its reach. I was lost in a hardwood puddle of twilight orange on the gleaming floors at Corbett vs Dempsey when it came to me. The sunset squeezed through […]

Joëlle Snaith: programming the post-pop video

If Internet killed the video star, this minimal techno video could be Exhibit A. There is a hint of cityscapes, fish shoals, and cell groups. But the work of visual artist Joëlle is as slippery as the music it serves. No song, as such, and certainly no starring musicians. Instead we have a work that gives form to data, as it […]

Why do I give a shit about art?

Zona MACO and Material, the fairs that ran more or less concurrently the first week of February here in Mexico City, helped synthesize a number of threads floating around in my mind since arriving here. Those threads: Boris Groys’s essay “Art Activism,” published in e-flux shortly before I moved, a talk by Donna Haraway that […]

Something’s Happening in Pullman

Guest Post by Kate Ingold. When I tell friends and colleagues that I’m going down to Pullman to see art, I get one of two responses: 1) What’s Pullman? or 2) That’s so far away! Let me address both of these responses before moving on: 1) Pullman, nestled near I-94 and Lake Calumet, is one […]

You’re The Top…

Moving to a new town is disorienting. The streets do not yet make sense. The grocery store has strange foods. The restaurant chains arrange themselves differently. The art world shifts and morphs, revealing new opportunities, expansive possibilities, and gaps to be filled. I recently moved from Minneapolis-Saint Paul to Chattanooga, Tennessee. I am adjusting to the […]

Nikita Kadan: radical roots from Kiev

2 months agoArts : Bad at Sports Blog

The current political differences between Moscow and Kiev seem intractable. But it remains true that both governments have an interest in cultivating sustenance. Both governments need to eat. A new London show by Ukrainian artist Nikita Kadan revolves around a vegetable patch. Well-cared for lettuce and herbs grow in a square yard of rich, dark soil. […]
