"Everybody Is Concerned

about what is happening," said Rena Bransten, who opened her gallery in San Francisco 30 years ago. "I've gone through this before, but this is so different because it's global. And, part of being a dealer is not only selling art but supporting your artists." That was an excerpt from yesterday's piece by Julian Guthrie on the economic downturn's effect on the local scene. Also in the piece is Martin Muller and Catherine Clark, but most of the feature is hooey. BTW the new Vik Muniz show at Bran

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

Weekend Guide

Sat, 2008-10-18 02:56
Adsense Code] With the opening of the fall art season upon us, I figured I might as well show what’s going on right here in the heart of New York gallery land instead of the usual Weekend Video.And as you’ll see, there’s a decidedly mixed bunch of shows. So if I sound a little cranky, well - you be the judge of whether it’s warranted or not.My first stop - literally across the road - was Mitchell-Innes & Nash and a show of new work by Martha Rosler. Rosler has b

O testemunho de James Nachtwey.

TED é a sigla para Technology, Entertainment, Design. A idéia apareceu em 1984. Uma conferência reuniu gente destas três áreas. De lá para cá o TED cresceu e ultrapassou o seu campo de atuação. O TED é uma organização onde se compartilha idéias e “desejos grandes o suficiente para mudar o mundo”. Na conferência anual do Ted se reunem “os mais fascinantes pensadores e empreendores do mundo”. Uma vez por ano eles distribuem 3 prêmios de 100 mil dólares para pensadores e realizadores. O TED é

No más héroes, un lema punk para una exposición de Artium

Sat, 2008-10-04 09:51
“No more heroes”, cantaban los Stranglers en una de sus mejores canciones mientras se preguntaban por el paradero de antihéroes como Leon Trostky o Sancho Panza. Y, como si quisiera reivindicar la validez de ese eslogan punk, el Centro-Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Artium de Vitoria ha programado su octava presentación de la colección permanente bajo ese lema. Con No más héroes, Artium selecciona más de 70 obras en pintura, dibujo, escultura, fotografía, instalación y videoarte en las que se
