Of Delicate Pride - Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada

Wed, 2008-11-26 14:03
The Wooster Collective published an interview with Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada. The answers to the following three questions are a brilliant introduction to his work. (My favorite, of course, is the third answer.)Wooster: What other artists do you most admire? I admire artists from different periods because of how they have impacted me at different times in my life. Leonardo da Vinci, Jean Giraud, Marcel Duchamp, John Heartfield, Ana Mendieta, Chris Burden, Barbara Kruger, Mark Pauline, Christo and J

The contemporary art museum in the middle of a Brazilian tropical park

The Mata gallery. Photo: Bruno Magalhães. Sorry for the long silence, this visit to Brazil is far more absorbing than i expected. On Sunday, the organizers of arte.mov (the festival for mobile media art) took us for a school trip to the Instituto Cultural Inhotim. An hour drive away from Belo Horizonte, Inhotim is a contemporary art museum, made of pavilions and installations spread over a lush botanical garden. By garden i mean 600 hectares of natural reserve and a Tropical Park, with 45

Cuando los museos quiebran

Cuando los museos quiebran En ocasiones, es inevitable tener la impresión de que estamos interpretando la realidad con un marco teórico inadecuado y defectuoso, de que carecemos de herramientas para explicar e intervenir en lo que está pasando y de que son los propios sucesos los que evidencian el carácter imperfecto de nuestro mapa. En un momento en el que se habla de la posibilidad del museo de recuperar un rol basado en la relacionalidad crítica entre públicos diversos y de su articulación

Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada: The A's To Our Q's

Tue, 2008-11-25 14:08
Age: 42 Hometown: My family left Cuba when I was three and settled down in North Plainfield, New Jersey. I grew up going to keg parties in the woods and listening to hard music (Black Sabbath, Rush, Pantera, Bad Brains…) I remember it all as an adventure. I was cutting class all the time and moving from crazy thing to do to crazy thing to do. Where do you now live?: For the last six years I have been living in Barcelona, Spain. Barcelona is really cool. Unique mountains and hip beaches su

Chris Burden- TV Ad

Thu, 2008-11-20 15:59
Burden made his piece Through the Night Softly, where he held his hands behind his back and crawled through about 50 feet of glass, into a TV ad. Ik kruip nog liever op mijn blote knieen door gebroken glas!

Poetic [,] Model: A New Criticism of Chris Burden

Wed, 2008-11-19 02:01
Interview with Chris Burden Conducted by Tiffany Barber *** The close reading most North American students do in English classes comes largely from an interpretive tradition known by lit nerds as New Criticism, a close-reading approach to poetry that posits the text’s (rather than the writer’s) primacy, and examines textual features instead of such externalities as author biography, or historical context. This approach makes the text an autonomous entity, only as good as its parts are discer

Evil Monito Site Relaunch + Issue 23

Tue, 2008-11-18 14:59
JoshSpear.com friend Rickey Kim (aka Mr. Kim Says) dropped word on his newly redesigned Evil Monito site, which reins in recent stories with newer content for the 23rd issue of its online magazine. Resting on the haunches of the Get Fierce! theme are some hot interviews with Yoko Ono and Chris Burden, and even more thirst-inducing, the photos for the Estevan Oriol piece make spicy seem bland. I love the hand-drawn profile pictures; like Wall Street Journal stipple sketches but for our set. T

Museum after Dark

Sun, 2008-11-16 04:58
We arrived long after dusk, having driven amongst the tail lights and twinkling skyscrapers. Ascending in a peculiar elevator of red steel and glass, we stepped out onto a vast concrete plaza where masses of heavy architecture rose into the darkness, box like and un-ornate. Before them a gleaming cluster of chrome chairs sat steely in the incandescent light of a hundred streetlamps {2}. Inside the cold bare foyer of the Ahmanson building, a wide flight of stairs stretched toward a wall of glass,

Saturday night lights

Somehow, in my urban ambling, the work of Chris Burden keeps bursting through the landscape, whether in the limestone canyon of Rockefeller Center in New York or as I’m strolling Wilshire near the new BCAM here in LA. I’ve professed my love for this streetlamp installation before, and I finally got a chance to explore them at night. There’s something rather menacing about them, isn’t there? Like they’re in a streetlamp gang, and they all gathered here together, from all parts of the city,

Fred on his work: I want my audience to experience images and video that can be understood within the context of similar experiences that might have occurred within their own lives. As individuals we share so much in common with other people, but we are isolated within our own minds. There is a disconnectedness created between every individual and their surrounding universe that is fundamentally integrated through that person’s ability to accept sensory information and respond with languag

Ses lettres de non-motivation, c'est tout un art

Ouest-France - 13/11/08 - Pascale VERGEREAU Julien Prévieux, avec, derrière lui, l'une des réponses à ses surréalistes lettres de non-motivation dans la galerie parisienne qui expose régulièrement son art, très centré sur le travail. Il y a huit ans, Julien Prévieux s'est mis à refuser tous les emplois, après en avoir vainement cherché un. « Ça a commencé comme une vengeance », c'est devenu un art. Ses lettres de non-motivation sont aujourd'hui encadrées dans les galeries

Chris Burden

Chris Burden’s provocative, often shocking conceptual performance pieces of the early 1970s retain their raw and confrontational force in these dramatic visual records, shot on Super-8, 16mm film, and half-inch video. Guided by the artist’s candid, explanatory comments on both the works and the documentative process, these segments reveal the major themes of Burden’s work - the psychological experience of danger, pain, and physical risk, the aggressive abuse of the body as an art object, and t
