Sol Lewitt at MASS MoCA!!!MASS MOCA admission fees have gone up but GUESS WHAT... it's worth it! In fact, I did not even go into any of the other buildings to see any of the other shows... I had already seen everything that is up... all of my time on this visit was spent in the newly opened space housing the Sol Lewitt retrospective.Not that I paid the full price - I always bring a "student" id and pay $10 - but still! This previously un-used building is now FILLED with three floors of Sol Lewit

Let there be light

Sat, 2008-11-15 22:46
Alan Yentob presents an overview of the state of light art - mainly composed of pieces in London last year (UVA’s Volume at the Southbank centre, Anthony McCall at the Serpentine, Liliane Lijn at Riflemaker), but with interesting forays around the world to see other artists - notably James Turrell, and his amazing 30 year installation at Roden Crater. Yentob does his normal gormless wandering schtick, but he really does seem interested in the pieces, and does pass on the sense of wonder that pi

Giuseppe Panza di Biumo è uno dei maggiori collezionisti mondiali, ha raccolto ben oltre 2500 opere. E’ stata una figura fondamentale nella cultura artistica, con un intuito straordinario ha posto la sua attenzione alle tendenze artistiche contemporanee. La collezione Panza è ospitata in varie sedi: nella splendida Villa Menafoglio Litta Panza, che nel 1996 è stata donata al FAI, e nei più importanti musei internazionali quali il Guggenheim di New York, il Museo d’Arte Contemporanea (MOCA) di

A Long Now Moment: James Turrell’s Roden Crater

Mon, 2008-11-03 07:44
Sometimes it’s important to view time in bigger chunks, to look at projects as something monumental. James Turrell’s earth work sculpture Roden Crater was started in 1979 and will be open to the public in 2011. This silent film gives a peek inside the project. The visuals are impressive. The Roden Crater strikes me as one of the new wonders of the world. Makes me smile that we mortals are still capable of this kind of thing.

Roden Crater Project- Volcano Renovation

Wed, 2008-10-15 13:16
    Roden Crater is a natural cinder volcano situated on the southwestern edge of the Painted Desert in northern Arizona. Since 1972, with grants from Dia Art Foundation, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts, James Turrell is turning this natural geographic formation into a monumental environmental artwork. He has designed a series of chambers and observation platforms in the crater, in line with the sun, moon, stars, and planets, inspired by ancient sites like Sto

As Long As This Volcano Remains Deadish, Do Anything You Want

Wed, 2008-10-15 05:03
In 1979, artist James Turrell purchased this 400,00-year-old, 3-km-wide Roden Crater in Flagstaff, Arizona. For the past 30 years, James has been working to transform it into a “massive naked-eye observatory, designed specifically for the viewing of celestial phenomena. He says he’s planning to open the crater for public viewing in 2011. But he had also promised a 2005 opening, so maybe somebody’s leg is just being pulled. Nevertheless. link Tags: James Turrell, Roden Crater

Psicologia de la percepción y arte.

James Turrell, es un artista americano (Los Ángeles, 1943) que ha estudiado y se ha especializado en óptica y psicologia de la percepcion, cuyo máximo interes es la luz, el espacio y la mente. Se le ha denominado “escultor de la luz y la mente”. Para 2012 pretende abrir un concepto - exposición que me parece muy interesante.

The Land

Sun, 2008-10-12 18:29
One of the ways landscape art may evolve in the future is in the development of actual sites by artists, not simply for aesthetic purposes, as in, say, Roden Crater, but for the purposes of social engagement and interaction. Rirkrit Tiravanija's project The Land is a good example of this. Hans Ulrich Obrist describes it as 'a large-scale collaborative and transdisciplinary project taking place on a plot of land that Tiravanija purchased in the village of Sanpatong, near Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Mattress Factory Art Auction - artmarketblog.com The leveling-off of prices at the middle and lower end of the market have resulted in the potential for plenty of bargains. One such source for potential fine art bargains is the upcoming auction being held by the Mattress Factory, a Pittsburgh USA based museum of contemporary art with a primary focus on the exhibition of installation works. Of particular interest is the museum’s residency program which, since it begun in 1977, has supported ove

Ceramics by Gertrude and Otto Natzler, photo Jeff Jahn This September plays host to some of Portland's most spectacular, erudite and heavy hitting shows in recent memory but the one I keep coming back to is an oasis of quiet mastery, The Ceramics of Gertrude and Otto Natzler at the Museum of Contemporary Craft. It's a return of sorts since the museum organized a retrospective of the Natzlers in 1975 when MoCC was then called the Contemporary Crafts Gallery. Maybe it's the renewed interest

Well, I Remember The First Time I Visited The Spiral Jetty

Former NGA curator and Dia director Jeffrey Weiss writes about the state of Land Art in the latest issue of Artforum. His focus: T.S.O.Y.W., a 3-hour Earthworks road trip movie/installation by Amy Granat and Drew Heitzler shown in this year's Whitney Biennial, and the Sculpture Center's recent exhibition of feminism and Land Art in the 1970's [which featured the Agnes Denes work, Wheatfield - A Confrontation in Battery Park City that I mentioned a couple of months ago.]As Earthworks come of age

Spiral Jetta: Witnessing Earthworks

Thu, 2008-08-28 07:20
Spiral Jetty In 1970, two discrete events helped define what would become known as “land art.” Michael Heizer, who had fled the East Coast for the ascetic rigor of the Nevada desert, had a New York gallery show featuring images of “Double Negative,” a pair of 50-foot-deep, dynamited and bulldozed trenches on a remote mesa near Las Vegas. Later that year, Artforum featured another monumental work, Robert Smithson’s “Spiral Jetty,” an “immobile cyclone” of boulders jutting out from a desolate c
