Mickalene Thomas: Waiting on a Prime-Time Star

Mickalene Thomas: Waiting on a Prime-Time Star | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

The self is a slippery thing—an entity built on slippery grounds and shaped by slippery forces. The French psychotherapist Jacques Lacan perhaps put it best that “the self” is both something we build as well as imagine; it is located between the fictions of the ego and the fictions of the unconscious, where unity between the two remains impossible but deeply necessary for one’s development.

This Yayoi Kusama/Louise Bourgeois Show Is Basically Like Going to Therapy

This Yayoi Kusama/Louise Bourgeois Show Is Basically Like Going to Therapy | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

From Frida Kahlo to Aloise Corbaz, it's no secret that many of history's great female artists battled mental illness. Yet most of these women were producing art at a time when mental health problems were far more stigmatized and misunderstood than they are today. This makes the works of Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010) and Yayoi Kusama (born 1929), due to be jointly exhibited for the first time at Sotheby's S|2 Gallery later this month, all the more awe-inspiring. This is not least because of their huge successes over the years, from Bourgeois' Honorary doctorate from Yale to Kusama's current record for the highest price paid for a work by a living female artist.

#Hashtags – Toward the Black Museum

#Hashtags – Toward the Black Museum | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

The recent controversy over Kelley Walker’s exhibition Direct Drive at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, and the departure of that exhibition’s curator, Jeffrey Uslip, was another reminder that museums are not built and programmed for all audiences alike. As this column has taken up questions of race in the museum on numerous occasions (and class in the museum, and gender in the museum), a comment on the St. Louis situation seems warranted. Public protests were mounted after audiences discovered that Walker’s artwork consisted of enlarged, appropriated photos of African Americans, smeared with toothpaste. Against the backdrop of outcries precipitated by the killing of Michael Brown in nearby Ferguson, the decision to feature a White, New York–based artist whose work takes up race in a manner that is provocative but not analytical seems almost comically ham-fisted.

Kerry James Marshall: Mastry | The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Kerry James Marshall: Mastry | The Metropolitan Museum of Art | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

The largest museum retrospective to date of the work of American artist Kerry James Marshall (born 1955) will open this October at The Met Breuer as a cornerstone of its inaugural season. Encompassing nearly 80 works—including 72 paintings—that span the artist’s remarkable 35-year career, this major monographic exhibition reveals Marshall’s practice to be a complex and compelling one that synthesizes a wide range of pictorial traditions to counter stereotypical representations of black people in society and reassert the place of the black figure within the canon of Western painting.
