Art in Print July–August 2014

We are pleased to announce that the July–August 2014 issue of Art in Print is out now. It is a tool of Wall Street and Occupy Wall Street, of circuit boards and skateboards, T-shirts, paintings and limited-edition prints. This fluidity may be the closest thing screenprint has to a distinct identity, which makes it either the most boring or the most interesting art medium on the planet. The July-August issue of Art in Print looks at the... continue reading

REVIEWS

“Dark Waters”
GALERIE CHANTAL CROUSEL, Paris
View of “Dark Waters,” Galerie Chantal Crousel, Paris, 2014.

by SABRINA TARASOFF

The sea is said to speak to us in an amalgam of mysterious and alluring analogies, which are drawn from its depths and, at times, swallowed all too easily by the contemplative desires of artists, poets, and theorists alike. The metaphors are countless, yet invariable—from the reflective surfaces of still... continue reading

Andrea Büttner’s “Tische”
NOGUERASBLANCHARD, Barcelona
View of Andrea Büttner, “Tische,” NoguerasBlanchard, Barcelona, 2014.

by MAX ANDREWS AND MARIANA CANEPA LUNA

Pursuing a clearly spiritual approach within a Christian cultural and ethical context, Andrea Büttner is one of the few contemporary artists who could plausibly cite St. Francis of Assisi, the twelfth-century Catholic friar who committed himself to a life of poverty, as a key influence. Her work Tische [Tables] (2013),... continue reading

“Apparition”
SOMMER CONTEMPORARY ART, Tel Aviv
Elad Lassry, Collie (Deer), 2013.

by DANIEL HORN

Apparitions, classified as celestial and flighty phenomena, spawn earthly suppositions from their beholder. And these thoughts can be utterly profane: Are Lassie and Bambi checking each other out, as Elad Lassry’s Collie (Deer) (2013) ensemble suggests? Wasn’t Bambi a minor? Wasn’t Lassie gay? What gender was Bambi supposed to be... continue reading

Mean Girls: Keren Cytter and “Vengeance”

by MELISSA GRONLUND

“I’m so excited,” a young woman says, about an advertising meeting that would make your eyes water with boredom. “Don’t worry, that’ll pass,” her older colleague replies. It’s a flat cliché, and he delivers it with a withering smile of self-congratulation. The woman appears put down, but you get the feeling that’s... continue reading
