Double Take—”The 57th Carnegie International”

CARNEGIE MUSEUM OF ART, Pittsburgh

Installation view of Kevin Jerome Everson's Park Lanes, 2015.
by

Orit Gat and Rachel Valinsky

Double Take is a feature of art-agenda in which two authors review the same exhibition. Written separately, the two texts share the same images and are published below. —By Orit Gat I first came to the United States as an “international student.” At the risk of bothering the current administration, I stayed... continue reading
View of “Long March Project: Building Code Violation III – Special Economic Zone” at the Guangdong Times Museum, Guangzhou, 2018.

Alvin Li

The dedication of the guidebook accompanying “Long March Project: Building Code Violations III – Special Economic Zone” reads: “To the freezone imagineers.” A portmanteau combining “imagination” and “engineering,” “imagineering” was first coined by the Alcoa Corporation during World War II, and later popularized—and trademarked—by the Walt Disney Company during the... continue reading

These “found” documents (indeed, quasi-artifacts) are prefaced by one of... continue reading
Dublin Gallery Weekend

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Dublin

Abbas Akhavan, Study For a Monument, 2013-16.
by

Ben Eastham

Dublin is a dirty and disjointed city, a tangle of loosely connected neighborhoods best navigated on foot.
