Martha Wilson in the Daily Utah Chronicle

Posted on September 27, 2013

Katrina Vastag of The Daily Utah Chronicle profiles Martha Wilson’s interventionism in the UMFA galleries and highlights her concurrent installation Helen Levitt and Gary Winogrand photographs from the UMFA permanent collection:
“In addition to Wilson’s individual art, she put together a collection of photographs by Helen Levitt and Garry Winogrand, which can be found on the second floor of the UMFA. The photographs have accompanying text meant to challenge the viewer. She hopes museum guests will notice the difference between a man’s gaze and a woman’s gaze — glances highlighted through Wilson’s photographic pairings.”

The Guerilla Girls also held a sold-out show in connection with the exhibit on Sept. 12 at the UMFA!

Stephen Kaltenbach in the Chicago Reader

Disappearing and reemerging with artist Stephen Kaltenbach
By Andrea Gronvall for the Chicago Reader

“Stephen Kaltenbach has been among the most influential American artists since the late 1960s, when he helped introduce the movement known as conceptualism. Near the height of his youthful fame in 1970 he left the New York art scene for northern California, where he still resides. A sculptor, painter, and installation and performance artist, Kaltenbach was in town last weekend for Expo Chicago. On Friday he spoke at the Independent Curators International (ICI) booth about his stainless steel Untitled Time Capsules. (ICI is also touring a group show, “State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970,” opening October 3 at the Smart Museum, which will feature Kaltenbach’s Art Works, 1968-2005 and Artforum Ads, 1969-70.)

Also last weekend he appeared at the opening of a show of his works at Bert Green Fine Art, where he spoke to me about his career.

AG: The other day when I asked you how long it took art followers to catch up with you, you replied that you weren’t especially approachable when you were young, and had a hard time being serious. You mentioned that early on your supporters were not audiences, per se. Can you expound on that?

SK: I really liked humor in sculpture, painting, and conceptual art, so I was fine with being pretty inaccessible. I had learned a lot in art history classes: if you do art secretly, and you don’t initially have a lot of luck, people will explain what you do, people who can explain it better than, say, I can.”

Michigan Avenue Magazine on State of Mind

Posted on October 2, 2013

Thomas Connors previewed State of Mind in Michigan Avenue Magazine on October 1, 2013. “When Damien Hirst’s net worth and the art-buying power of newly minted billionaires grab as much attention as what artists are actually up to, it’s tonic to consider a time when doing, not selling, was paramount. Now on view at the Smart Museum of Art, “State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970” is a sharp examination of Conceptual art in the Golden State, where its practitioners (many of whom came from elsewhere) pursued its aims with a relish peculiar to that Pacific-kissed world.”

The Art of Bottles
By Simon Lee

November 25, 2013

Although you may well have admired the bottle-balancing performance ritually enacted on the pavement outside Smokey and Bunty’s bar in St James, it’s unlikely that even with a bad head you would have considered this “Art”. Think again, and not simply about the artistry required to source the raw materials for this distinctly postmodern Creole performance art. Here in Trinidad, we take for granted such street performances in much the same way that tourists or Londoners take for granted the jugglers in Convent Garden, or the pavement chalk artists who’ll oblige with a quick portrait or an Old Master. It took an outsider—Heino Schmid, a Bahamian artist—to see the bottle balancing as an art form. Initially captivated, Schmid began to study the performance both from practical and artistic points of view.

He made drawings; studied the physics involved; dedicated long nights of research on the St James pavement to eventually learn the magic of balancing and then to shoot a short video of himself performing, which combines humour and sly commentary with manual precision. Schmid’s “temporary horizons” video, which runs for approximately ten minutes and features the headless artist’s hands carefully placing two bottles—the upper one with residuals which constitute the temporary horizon—before he walks offscreen leaving the bottles, which eventually collapse, was originally shown at the prestigious Tate Liverpool Biennale in 2010. Last week, thanks to local artist Christopher Cozier, one of the 35 curators of Project 35, it was screened at Alice Yard, along with several other videos from the same project.

“Outside the Miami Beach Convention Center Walls” in Art In America

“Outside the Miami Beach Convention Center Walls: NADA, Pérez Museum, Ink”
By Brian Boucher

December 6, 2013

Within 40 minutes of the opening of the NADA (New Art Dealers Association) fair, at Miami Beach’s Deauville Beach Resort hotel, NewYork’s James Cope had sold out. The Cope Cybulski booth displayed nine bone-white geometric abstract wall sculptures by London-based artist Ben Sansbury, all gone at $3,500, “with no discounts,” Cope told A.i.A.

“Are you going to close down now?” joked Dallas-based collector Kenny Goss, who had bought one of the sculptures, as he walked by.

While much of the attention during Miami Art Week may go to the Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB) fair, with its celebrity visitors and millions of dollars’ worth of sales, other fairs and nonprofits are drawing crowds and offering various art experiences.

NADA, located in the Deauville Beach Resort hotel at Collins Avenue and 67th Street, opened its doors at 10 a.m. Thursday, drawing a fervent crowd. With 76 exhibitors and 18 artists’ projects, NADA celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and runs through Dec. 8.

“The younger galleries who exhibit at this fair are so experimental and yet so serious at the same time,” collector Anita Zabludowicz told A.i.A. in the stand of New York’s Clifton Benevento. “These are the future David Zwirners of the world.”

Situated just near the entrance, New York nonprofit Independent Curators International was doing a bustling business a half-hour into the preview, Bridget Finn told A.i.A. Among her sales, she had sold two large John Baldessari prints from 1990, never before exhibited, for $2,500 each, and two Liz Glynn editioned necklaces in various metals for $1,500.

Allen Ruppersberg Sourcebook in BOMB

Posted on September 10, 2014

“This book is a demonstration of Ruppersberg’s process laid bare: a study of the tipping point between reference material and artwork. The choices made. And what is America about but choice. Perhaps, as Ginsberg puts it ‘A tragic custard-pie of wild phrasing’”.
