do it Thai Version (archive) by Surasi Kusolwong.

Hans Ulrich Obrist and the ICI traveling exhibition do it are profiled extensively in the current issue of The New Yorker magazine. The article, written by D. T. Max, focuses on the prolific curator, delving into his early years, the development of his intimate relationships with artists, and his dedication to unique ways of exhibiting works of art.

About Obrist, Max says:

Obrist, for his part, notes that his exhibits often demonstrate what he has called a “quality of unfinishedness and incompleteness.” He doesn’t like art to have temporal, spatial, or intellectual limits. The white cube of the gallery irks him; closing dates bother him. He prefers to think of exhibitions as seeds that can grow.”

The article goes on to talk about the first exhibition of do it in Klagenfurt, Austria, and the project’s evolution over the last twenty years, calling it “one of the most widely produced art shows in the world.”

William Kentridge, Drawing Lesson 47 (Interview for New York Studio School) 2010, Single-channel video, colour, sound, 4 min., 48 sec. Courtesy of the artist Keith Gallasch recently reviewed the exhibition of Performance Now at QUT Art Museum in Brisbane, Australia for Real Time Arts Magazine. The article gives in-depth descriptions of specific artworks in the show, as well placing the exhibition within the larger context and history of contemporary performance art. About Performance Now, Gallasch says:

“No breezing through this show. You’ll need hours, maybe days. In Performance Now, a collection of significant works will be simultaneously exhibited on screen in the museum. They comprise variously brisk, episodic and durational creations—serious, witty and provocative—by performance artists, visual artists with an inclination to perform (or have others do it for them) and film, video, theatre and dance makers, expanding our sense of what comprises performance today.”
