Emily Jacir Wins $100K Hugo Boss Prize

Emily Jacir Wins $100K Hugo Boss Prize Yesterday, while perusing the contemporary sale offerings at Phillips (the spectacular Judd alone was worth braving the downpour for), we spotted several Hugo Boss-logoed black vans idling outside; was an announcement of this year's winner of the art prize sponsored by the German fashion haus imminent?

Yesterday, while perusing the contemporary sale offerings at Phillips (the spectacular Judd alone was worth braving the downpour for), we spotted several Hugo Boss-logoed black vans idling outside; was an announcement of this year's winner of the art prize sponsored by the German fashion haus imminent? Indeed. Last night, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Hugo Boss announced that Palestinian-American artist Emily Jacir (pictured at left) is the winner of the 2008 Hugo Boss Prize. She wil

I want to check it out! With 'theanyspacewhatever', the Guggenheim Museum New York presents a group exhibition of individual installations for the Rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright's landmark building. The show was organized by the Guggenheim Museum's Chief Curator, Nancy Spector, in close collaboration with the artists. The exhibition brings together ten artists, whose work reaches beyond the visual arts. Theanyspacewhatever features Angela Bulloch, Maurizio Cattelan, Liam Gillick, Dominique G

Sidney Gilliat, "who died in 1994, is one of the unsung heroes of British cinema, an extraordinarily versatile figure who wrote and directed riproaring thrillers, satirical comedies and home-front social dramas," writes Geoffrey Macnab, prepping Guardian readers for the season at BFI Southbank opening tomorrow and running through December 11. Steven Henry Madoff for Artforum: "Evidence of the ineffable in the particular form of fellow feeling is everywhere present in the curiosity and affecti

Sorry for the long silence, i was a bit dazed by the 2 fantastic days i spent at the School of Architecture of Alicante. Thanks a lot to Paco Mejias, Jose Maria Torres Nadal and a virtual Edgar Gonzalez who have made my stay over there so memorable and fun. Theo Jansen, Strandbeest So let's get back to blogging and to my belated report on Art Futura which took place last week in Barcelona.

November 1, 2008 in Aesthetics, Current viewing, The "Art World" | Tags: "theanyspacewhatever", art, Guggenheim, performance art, Roberta Smith A few minutes into “NY. 2022,” a performance piece at the Guggenheim Museum last Friday night, a young man and woman stripped naked, stepped into a frosted-glass shower stall and started pouring water on each other. As if on cue, two audience members got up and left the museum’s theater, huffily. Too bad. They missed 45 minutes of ineffably touchin

The Guggenheim's Iteration of the Great Whatever: A Review

An informal review of the exhibition titled theanyspacewhatever Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum October 24, 2008–January 7, 2009 A year ago, Unmonumental, the inaugural exhibition at the New Museum of Contemporary Art on the Bowery, brought us a little unkempt assemblage. In the spring, the Whitney Biennial unleashed youthful MFA mayhem within the museum and in the Armory. Now, the Guggenheim, in celebration of its extensive renovation, brings us Part Three of the Great Whatever. In contrast to l

Considering “Relational Aesthetics”

Sat, 2008-10-25 18:51
Much art of the 1990s will forever remain associated with Nicolas Bourriaud’s exhibition Traffic (1995) and the book it spurred him to write, Relational Aesthetics (1998), which put forward the terms of art we now use to identify (describe?) the offerings of artists such as Liam Gillick, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerester and others.  Whether one was eating Thai food in a gallery, sitting and conversing on understated but stylized benches in an exhibition hall, or taking part in

Londres 5 : Dominique Gonzales-Foerster à la Tate Modern

Sat, 2008-10-25 09:40
Grande était mon impatience de découvrir l’installation de Dominique Gonzales-Foerster dans le Hall des Turbines de la Tate. Inversement proportionnelle à la déception qui s’ensuivit une fois passé le rideau de lamelles colorées introductif à son installation. Des lits jaunes et bleus (cf. Claude Lévêque), une arraignée géante (cf. Louise Bourgeois), mais aussi des citations artistiques vraiment trop explicites allant des sculptures de Calder ou de Henri Moore à celles de Bruce Nauman.

---- Yukio Mishima & Domoto Masaki Rite of Love & Death (1966) 'Playwright and novelist Yukio Mishima foreshadowed his own violent suicide with this ravishing short feature, his only foray into filmmaking, yet made with the expressiveness and confidence of a true cinema artist. All prints of Patriotism (Yûkoku), which depicts the seppuku of a army officer, were destroyed after Mishima's death in 1970, though the negative was saved, and the film resurfaced thirty-five years later.

Pierre Huyghe pubblicato in Arte da Roberto M. ven 17/10/08 Lo spazio di una galleria è uno spazio dinamico e flessibile per definizione. Tutto gira e si muove, come qualsiasi business. L'arte passa, passa di mano, finisce in magazzino o in salotto, come fossero scarpe o spazzolini, e questo è il bello. Pierre Huyghe si è andato a cercare questo tempo dimenticato, raschiando dal muro la pittura, strato dopo strato, e restituendo al presente la memoria di uno spazio espositivo. Come le trac

The exhibition will brings together ten artists who exemplify creative impulse: Angela Bulloch, Maurizio Cattelan, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Pierre Huyghe, Jorge Pardo, Philippe Parreno, and Rirkrit Tiravanija. These artists have chosen to each produce an individual, site-specific work or selection of works for the museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright rotunda. Their projects are retrospective in nature, capturing their own individual histories and ref

silence

Fri, 2008-10-10 21:16
Before calling Luc, Pierre and I had talked about the place of silence, and more generally the question of time, in interviews and in their transcriptions. I told Pierre about my meeting with Hans Georg Gadamer a few years earlier. He was 101 years old, and he dozed off during the interview. For a few minutes I watched him sleep, without turnng the tape off. Later, Gadamer talked to me about the importance of silence in conversation, and about the impossibility of recording silence in a transcri
