Too Big To Fail

October 10, 2012

“I want to do something Big. To do something Big does not mean to do something monumental or gigantic. If something is Big, it’s because it needs to be Big. One must understand that necessity as such or within its own logic. That’s why, when making things Big, I do it myself, with my own hands, with my own materials, with my own visual vocabulary and with my own work. I do it in order to avoid the “Blow-Up” effect and I do it to avoid falling into the trap of “Pumping the Size.” I want to do a Big work to show that the saying “Too Big to Fail” no longer makes any sense. On the contrary, when something is Too Big, it must Fail – this is what I want to give Form to. I want to understand this as a logic and this is the Form! This is what I want to explore, it is the grounding of my new work “Concordia, Concordia.” “Concordia, Concordia” brings back to mind the disastrous wreck of the cruise ship Costa Concordia and the images of the immersed ship in its confusing architecture. The flooded casino of consumption stands for evidence: the evidence of a coming disaster and the evidence of an announced failure. This is “Concordia, Concordia.”

-Excerpt from Thomas Hirschhorn’s press release for his current exhibition at Gladstone Gallery.

Don’t miss this installation, probably the most memorable exhibition on this list.

Thomas Hirschhorn’s “Concordia, Concordia” is on view at the Gladstone Gallery (530 West 21st Street) through October 20, 2012.

Trevor Paglen – The Last Pictures

September 7, 2012

“Since 1963, more than eight hundred spacecraft have been launched into geosynchronous orbit, forming a man-made ring of satellites around the Earth. These satellites are destined to become one of the longest-lasting artifacts of human civilization, quietly floating through space long after every trace of humanity has disappeared from the planet.

Trevor Paglen’s The Last Pictures is a project that marks one of these spacecraft with a visual record of our contemporary historical moment. Paglen spent five years interviewing scientists, artists, anthropologists, and philosophers to consider what such a cultural mark should be. Working with materials scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Paglen developed an artifact designed to last billions of years—an ultra-archival disc, micro-etched with one hundred photographs and encased in a gold-plated shell. In Fall 2012, the communications satellite EchoStar XVI will launch into geostationary orbit with the disc mounted to its anti-earth deck. While the satellite’s broadcast images are as fleeting as the light-speed radio waves they travel on, The Last Pictures will remain in outer space slowly circling the Earth until the Earth itself is no more.”

Trevor Paglen will present the project under the stars in Bryant Park and participate in a conversation on September 19, 2012.

The Ascendancy of Ink-Jet Printing

September 4, 2012

Wolfgang Tillmans, Headlight (a), 2012

The September 2012 issue of ArtForum is out and looks almost like the September issue of Vogue magazine in it’s thickness and ad content. Inside there is an interesting conversation between Michelle Kuo and Wolfgang Tillmans called Step into Liquid: The Ascendancy of Ink-Jet Printing.

Unfortunately, you can’t read it online, as it’s only available in print.

A quote from Tillmans:

“We have arrived at a point where a large proportion of “painting” is actually ink-jet printing. This is an amazing fact. But, almost as astonishingly, it is never really talked about. A photographic ink-jet print on paper, an iPad drawing printed on ink-jet paper, and an original design printed on ink-jet paper are all technically exactly the same. Perhaps it’s time to rethink the remarkably persistent categorization of artworks. In my view, we are all making pictures.”

Elad Lassry: Untitled (Presence)

August 23, 2012

The Kitchen has announced their Fall 2012 season and Elad Lassry’s Untitled (Presence) is one of the programs being presented.

Tickets are very cheap and will probably go quickly, so if you are curious what dance choreography by Lassry could be, here is your chance.

Pop Art is:

Popular (designed for a mass audience)

Expendable (easily-forgotten)
Low cost
Mass produced
Young (aimed at youth)
Big Business
