Canadian artists Jeff Wall, Stan Douglas, Luis Jacob and Sarah Anne Johnson are included in Haunted, a large exhibition of video, installation and photographic imagery exploring themes of memory, trauma, and return to the past. The show can be seen at the Guggenheim Museum in New York to September 6. These contemporary obsessions are also shown in works by Marina Abramović, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman and Andy Warhol among many others.

will be showing from June 5 to 27 a group exhibition of videos dealing with a very up-to-date matter: the transience of people and cultures. Through video collages and interviews five artists explore themes as different as immigration and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a very personal approach. Don’t miss the dim sum brunch with curator and artists on June 7 at noon.

Marilyn Minter: Green Pink Caviar

April 7, 2009 § Leave a comment

Green Pink Caviar is Marilyn Minter‘s first short movie. She has been playing on the edge of fine and commercial art for years and this video is part of Chewing Color, a video exhibition curated by her in Times Square. It explores the boundaries between disgust and beauty and I found it very, very sexy. Check the trailer here.
