Rodrigo Valenzuela in group exhibition at Triumph in Chicago 5.17.17

The Dangerous Professors
@ Triumph
2055 W Cermak Rd, Chicago, IL 60608-4115
Opening Saturday, May 13th, from 6PM - 10PM
The Dangerous Professors, a curatorial project exhibiting over one hundred and fifty artists–educators, acts as a counter-action to the pervasive rightwing impulse whose spirit jeopardizes civil, artistic and academic freedom by calling out, shaming, and harming those it opposes. The exhibition responds by first inviting artists who define themselves as educators to participate, the result of which creates a list of art-educators that can ... (read more)

Report: Orange County Museum of Art
With the exhibition title “Building As Ever,” the 2017 California-Pacific Triennial unites a spectrum of geographies through a theme of flux.
“Building As Ever,” the 2017 edition of the Orange County Museum of Art’s California-Pacific Triennial, is aptly named. For many years now, the museum has been engaged in a Sisyphean attempt to leave its Newport Beach campus behind for more glamorous digs. A patch of land in the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa ... (read more)

Emily Nimptsch reviews Alexandra Wiesenfeld’s o on alphasixty 5.16.17

Alexandra Wiesenfeld at Klowden Mann
Walking into Klowden Mann–currently housing Munich-born, Los Angeles-based artist Alexandra Wiesenfeld’s latest exhibition, o–one is struck with the unorthodox hanging of the artist’s work. Here, small and large pieces are seemingly arranged at random. Several works are crowded onto a single wall in a style reminiscent of the Parisian salons of yore, while other areas are virtually empty. There is, naturally, a method to such unexpected madness. The show was organized based on theme and ... (read more)

WAYS OF SEEING: A NEW MUSEUM STORY FOR PLANET EARTH by Grace Ndiritu 4.26.17

As a homage to John Berger's hugely influential 1972 text Ways of Seeing which introduced the idea of the 'male gaze' to the general public and forever changed our understanding of how we should view painting—especially those of the naked female form, by merely not seeing these nude women as objects—I thought it would be good to continue an investigation into the questions raised within my first text Healing The Museum. Thus, it maybe useful to read that text first, before beginning ... (read more)

Thomas Macker’s Holdout reviewed in Jackson Hole News & Guide 4.19.17

Show explores modern warfare’s complexity

Turns out, human beings stink at camouflage.
Humans dominate other species in many ways, but when it comes to camouflage and blending with the landscape, many animals, sea creatures and even insects best us, artist Thomas Macker said. They can shift their shape, change their skin pigment and contort their bodies to a 10th of their normal size, transforming until they are nearly invisible.

“They have a way of physically adapting to the landscape,” Macker said. “But when ... (read more)
