Tina Kim Gallery exhibition program is devoted to presenting contemporary art by both emerging and established artists. The gallery specializes in offering high quality secondary market works by twentieth century masters as well as many important artists working today.
Spanning two centuries—from around 1380 to 1580—the Northern Renaissance was the period in which the artistic practices and humanist ideals of Renaissance Italy migrated north across the Alps, and flourished in Germany, the Netherlands, and France. The movement is epitomized by the Dutch humanist scholar Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam, whose critical satires of the Catholic Church opened the door for the Protestant Reformation.
American artist Trevor Paglen may have more in common with whistleblower Edward Snowden or journalist Glenn Greenwald than he does with other contemporary artists. How do you categorize an artist who works like an investigative journalist and data scientist? In his own words, Paglen’s artistic project is to create “new metaphors” for the “invisible war”—the weaponization of space, the militarization of the internet, mass surveillance, and counterintelligence efforts by U.S. and foreign governments over the past 15 years, most of which remain classified. In 2015 we know the surveillance state is paradoxically as present as it is invisible, and in his past two solo shows at Metro Pictures, Paglen has gone to impressive lengths—technically and through exhaustive research—to make it visible for us. He built a telescopic lens to capture U.S. intelligence from 30 miles away; he modeled the orbits of unclaimed government satellites from TLE files sourced from amateur astronomers; and trained to scuba dive in order to take underwater images of fiber-optic communications cables tapped by the U.S. government. Paglen himself is at the technical cutting-edge of both photographic and software technology, making his process almost impossible to do justice to in our framework.
Brazilian artist Arruda’s abstract paintings have long transfixed the São Paulo art scene. Since 2009, when he held his first solo exhibition in the city, the artist has inspired a rapid collector base. (His waiting list was at one point rumored to be 100 names long.) Arruda had a strong 2015, curating a show at Herald St, London and receiving solo exhibitions at Lulu in Mexico City, and PIVÔ in São Paulo, among other highlights.
His compositions are as much lightscapes as landscapes; the artist forgoes scale for subtlety, exploring the luminous cadences of beaches, forests, and sunsets in relatively diminutive works that sometimes harken back to Whistler and Monet. They are frequently untitled, however, and his exhibitions often share the name “Deserto-Modelo,” evidence of the artist’s attempt to unanchor his art from any discernible place or context. One untitled work characteristically depicts a beach composed of criss-crossing brushstrokes, as if pulled this way and that by a wind felt only within the canvas.
In some ways, this year’s art news marched to a familiar, though by no means dull, rhythm: Auction house executives came and went, lawsuits were brought and settled, and all while the price of works at auction reached heretofore unimaginable heights. Yet, though it seems as though sometimes this beat is heard only by those inside the white cube, this year the art world had to contend with broader political and social issues from ISIS’s ongoing destruction of cultural heritage to free speech and labor relations. Here, we bring you the 20 key stories as they unfolded throughout the year.
Depth is not a concept immediately sparked when we think of thin pieces of paper, however artist Angela Glajcar gives the typically 2D medium a new sculptural life—stringing together dozens of sheets to create cavernous works often lit from their core. The trailing sculptures are ripped haphazar
There are few in the art world that see more, write more, or speak to more artists than Serpentine Galleries co-director Hans Ulrich Obrist. And, having literally written the book on curating, there are few better positioned to see what shape art will take in the future. So, what is the future of art according to Hans Ulrich Obrist? As he describes below: The Extreme Present.
O que possibilita participação ativa na esfera da arte é o saber das linguagens. O conhecimento dos códigos constitutivos das categorias artísticas permite uma apreciação qualificada; mas há sempre algo que escapa, mesmo ao melhor crítico, ainda ao diletante mais perspicaz: o interior da técnica. Claro, saber “ler” um desenho a carvão não é o…
Though news tends to get ascribed to particular events happening on a certain day at a certain time, a look through 2015 reveals that much of what made the headlines was a continuation or culmination of events that have unfolded over a number of years: the Syrian conflict, the march to marriage equality, the debt crisis in Greece, the Black Lives Matter movement. Though not “art news,” these and other stories touched the lives of many people, including artists. Here we highlight nine whose work can help parse the year’s biggest stories from a perspective not usually found in the columns of a newspaper’s front page.
Pulling from a year’s worth of travel, insight from some of the world’s most influential curators and collectors, and early intel on upcoming exhibitions, we’ve skimmed the top of emerging art to bring you the 16 artists to look out for in 2016.
This year’s most talked-about and game-changing institutional shows have revisited overlooked artists, cemented the positions of two of 20th-century art’s profoundest painters, and brought overdue attention to one of Latin America’s most important artists. They have also catapulted two emerging artists to the mainstream, harnessed the power of technology, and asked: What is American art today?
John Bisbee (previously) has worked with nails as a sculptural medium since he accidentally toppled a bucket of them years ago and was astonished to see how they remained intact, rusted and fused into a single object. Every since, he's been hammering nails of varying size into complex patte
Gathering spare pieces of metal, John Brown assembles his findings into sculptures of colorful butterflies, insects, and birds. Although the assemblages are formed from salvaged materials like nails and bicycle chains, the pieces somehow remain delicate, wings appearing just as thin as a butterf
