Videos and catalogs i would download if only inflight entertainement included internet

Thu, 2008-11-20 05:05
I am going to be offline during the 20+ hours of a trip to Brazil for the festival (btw any tips on exhibition to do see in Belo Horizonte and Sao Paulo are more than welcome), i'm going to miss the broadband and wonder why no one has fine tuned teletransportation yet. In the meantime, please, do me a favour and broadsurf for me: Art Fag City reported the cancellation of the Chelsea Art Museum's exhibition, Dialectics of Terror, and uploaded online the PDF of the catalog of a show t

Book Notes - Tod Lippy ("Esopus 11")

Wed, 2008-11-19 17:12
In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that is in some way relevant to their recently published books. I have John Darnielle to thank for introducing me to my favorite magazine. I picked up a copy of Esopus 5 solely for the accompanying CD, which included an unreleased Mountain Goats song, "Porcile." The CD alone was impressive, with new music from Alina Simone, Josephine Foster, Britta Phillips, Jim White and many more talented musicians. I would have subscrib

Postcards From the Edge: To Do when you're done with your Hey, Hot Shot! application

Sat, 2008-11-08 06:43
I trust that you are spending some time this weekend completing your Hey, Hot Shot! entry. When you are done with it, though, I urge you to consider submitting something to Postcards From the Edge: a benefit for Visual AIDS. Visual AIDS is a great group. In college I was sort of in awe to learn that a favorite photography professor had worked with them in 1990-91 and the result was the creation of the red AIDS awareness ribbon. Such a simple symbol. And their annual benefit -- Postcards Fr

uninvited collaborations with nature

Thu, 2008-11-06 08:37
Reminiscent of the first time I stumbled on a rock stack in the middle of a creek running beside a remote NW hiking trail, Nina Katchadourian’s Uninvited Collaborations with Nature echo the impermanent brilliance of Andy Goldsworthy on a more subtle, intimate scale. I’m particularly enamored with her Mended Spider Web series. From her site: The Mended Spiderweb series came about during a six-week period in June and July in 1998 which I spent on Pörtö. In the forest and around the house w

Books as Art

Tue, 2008-11-04 02:16
By Jeremy Hatch Check out this gallery of Amazing Art With Books that we just found thanks to our friends at Juxtapoz. As it happens, this one and this one are photos from a story we wrote about previously. They're of Adobe Books (on 16th, between Valencia and Guerrero) in November 2004, back when artist Chris Cobb rearranged the entire store's inventory by color, and entitled the installation There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World. (NPR has an interesting interview with Cobb here.

More Books by Hot Shot Mickey Smith I guess I don't talk much about what art I buy, but I am happy to report that I recently snagged a great print from Winter '07 Hot Shot Mickey Smith's 20x200 edition -- More Books. The subject! That color! I love so much about it. More Books is from Smith's series Volume, which she describes as "an ongoing project documenting bound periodicals and professional journals in public libraries. Most of these publications are being replaced by their online coun

Sounds Across Town

Tue, 2008-10-14 03:04
It would be hard to identify a small town with a bigger history than Marfa, Texas. This little desert town is an artistic oasis and has been a polestar for installation and land art (the Chinati and Judd Foundations reside here), the film community (many a major movie has been filmed here, including most recently No Country For Old Men), and enthusiasts of natural phenomena, for whom the Marfa Lights and Big Bend Natural Park create a mecca. Ballroom Marfa is a diamond in this dust bowl. Whil

What's in your bag?

Paho Mann's Junk Drawers and Medicine Cabinets series are beautifully executed, the kind of thing we couldn't possibly pass up (via kottke). But each little composition of objects reminded us not just of Joseph Cornell, Kurt Schwitters and even Damien Hirst, but also the plethora of similar projects that abound on flickr. As we're fond of often saying, we are all curators now that the internet has given us keys to an infinite cabinet. Nowhere is this more evident than in the plethora of flickr p

Anoche hablé con la lunalas palabras del mundo.De vuelta a la cueva,el camino,la otra orilla,la isla soñada,la frontera invisible,volví para demostrarte que podía volary decirte alguna estupidez, por ejemplo, "te quiero",con los ojos cerrados,sin máscara.El alimento de los dioses,el oro de los sueños,el beso de una fiera.Primer amor,querido nadie.Las bibliotecas ocultan tras sus caóticas series de títulos inconexos un sin fin de mensajes secretos que tenemos que descifrar...y me he puesto manos

La artista californiana Nina Katchadourian lleva desde 1993 creando conjuntos de libros cuyos lomos, leídos en secuencia, constituyen mensajes (vía The Digitalist). Y veo que en noviembre expondrá en Barcelona, en la galería Llucià Homs. Más de una vez me he reído viendo las coincidencias fortuitas de los títulos de los libros en mis estanterías, o en casas ajenas. Katchadourian explota y crea estos encuentros creando poemas concretos, como en la pieza llamada "Relax": Relax When I relax I fee

I am indebted - as I am so often - to Susan at Green Chair Press for this link to the official Sorted Books Project.'The Sorted Books project began in 1993 years ago and is ongoing. The project has taken place in many different places over the years, ranging form private homes to specialized public book collections. The process is the same in every case: culling through a collection of books, pulling particular titles, and eventually grouping the books into clusters so that the titles can be rea

Soothing Spine Novels

Tue, 2008-09-30 21:23
Everybody is so gloomy these days. We need a good literary meme to cheer us up. Earlier today, Fimoculous reminded us of the cheery art of spine novels--an easy way to reorganize your bookshelf and do some writing at the same time. For fifteen years, artist Nina Katchadourian has arranged stacks books into mini-stories, putting their spines in order so that the titles created short, short stories. Follow this link for examples from her Sorted Books project. My favorite spine novel takes s
