Rodrigo Valenzuela in The Stranger 9.18.17

The Mediated Intimacy of Closed Quarters, Curated by Rodrigo Valenzuela
by Emily Pothast
“Have you ever wanted to be an exhibitionist?” asks a man whose entire body is concealed inside a large cardboard box.
“Not in those exact words,” replies a man in a red flannel shirt. “Like, I never thought of it that way, [but] maybe that has something to do with being in front of a camera?”
 The man in the red shirt is Kenneth Tam, a New York-based artist who stages "... (read more)

In a State of Constant Introspective Flux: “Man-Made” by Alexandra Wiesenfeld
By Tulika Bahadur
“Man-Made” (2007-2009) by Los Angeles-based Alexandra Wiesenfeld (born in Munich, Germany) is an unusual project – something of a turning point in the career of the artist – that speaks volumes about the human condition and our wider environment. Here we find portraits based on mugshots of juvenile death row inmates from Texas juxtaposed with depictions of Fort Peck, a man-made lake in the badlands of Montana. The artist works out a ...
