Collaborative Project Needs YOU!

Ok Calling all artists in every meaning of the word – I am embarking on a collaborative project where I will send anyone willing an A4 drawing/painting/image and all I ask is that you add whatever you want to my art with your own marks, dra…wings, doodles, etc and send it back in an enclosed envelope. I am doing this as part of my studio presentation being in my third year BDVA at Unitec (painting). If you are interested in my project please message me your address and I will send you my art for you to add to and send back. I will also post all received works on a website once they come back on www.amandajanepriorwilliams.wordpress.com Many thanks (in advance!)xx

The Best of Art Berlin Contemporary 2012 | Artinfo

The Best of Art Berlin Contemporary 2012 | Artinfo

Art Berlin Contemporary (ABC) kicked off on Thursday morning, dropping its former preclusion towards a pan-fair theme and expanding into a third hall of Berlin’s Station center. Though sales have not been particularly brisk, foot traffic is heavy and, most importantly, the work on display represents the highest quality the fair has seen in recent memory.

Structured booths or walls have been dropped for a modular framework of scaffoldings and temporary partisians. ABC also does away with the migraine-inducing florescent lighting of most fairs in exchange for film spotlights directed on the works. These touches both add up to create a more exhibition-like feel — certainly much more so than during it’s “curated” years. Visitors have responded positively. While ABC 2012 is the most international that the fair has ever been, the strongest booths mostly originated from Berlin galleries, with the minimal shipping requirements and freedom of installation space allowing for works of truly impressive scale for an art fair, especially coming from some of the younger galleries. ARTINFO scoured the offerings to pick out the 10 best booths from the overall strong offerings on view.

Marilyn Minter – Green Pink Caviar

Marilyn Minter – Green Pink Caviar

“I was shooting stills of models with long tongues swirling and sucking bakery products from under a pane of glass. I wanted to make enamel paintings along the idea of painting with my tongue. My makeup artist shot some short videos just to see how it would look. The low definition videos looked so good that later we made plans to do a professional high definition video. I have made both billboards and produced a commercial advertising a 1989 painting show so this made sense as a next step. Green Pink Caviar seems to have a life of its own.”

Exhibition explores the contributions of the feminist writer Lucy R. Lippard to the Conceptual Art Movement

BROOKLYN, NY.- Materializing “Six Years”: Lucy R. Lippard and the Emergence of Conceptual Art, the first exhibition to explore the impact of the feminist writer, curator, and activist Lucy R. Lippard on the Conceptual art movement, will be on view at the Brooklyn Museum September 14, 2012, through February 3, 2013. Using Lippard’s influential 1973 book Six Years, which catalogued and described the emergence of Conceptual art in the late sixties and early seventies, as a critical and chronological framework, the exhibition illustrates the dynamics of Lippard’s key role in redefining how exhibitions were created, viewed, and critiqued during that era of transition.
