Some Of Our Favorite Links

 

  1. This is the grand daddy of all of the West Highland clubs founded by old Colonel Malcolm of Poltalloch himself. Somewhat elitist in its membership - one needs nominated and seconded by a club member. Anyone that can help Arfie get in should send us an email.
  2. So Tasmania now has a renowned (at least by some) museum. The Museum of New and Old Art (MONA). This place should be on your list to visit. Check it out MONA here.
  3. Olia Lianlina was a pioneering NetArt creator. She still is one of the greatest. Her website is filled with wonderful NetArt. Check out Teleportacia here. Read Lianlina's essay Turing Complete User. It is a thought provoking discussion on the role and definition of a computer 'user'.
  4. One of Miami's most exhuberant places is the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). Located of Biscayne Ave in Museum Park this beautiful place always as something going on. The prices are cheap ($12-$16) and admission is free the second Saturday of each month. If you live here go and go often. If you are visiting, it will be a highlight of your trip. Checkout their current programs at PAMM.
  5. The the big city galleries have some great shows going this Winter/Spring.
    • MOMA - Beyte Saar - Legends of Black Girl's Window, - After nearly a decade of focused work in printmaking, Saar created her autobiographical assemblage Black Girl's Window in 1969. This exhibition explores the relation between her experimental print practice and the new artistic language debuted in that famous work, tracing themes of family, history, and mysticism, which have been at the core of Saar's work from its earliest days. Through January 4th

    • MOMA - Various Artists - Sur moderno: Journeys of Abstraction - Sur moderno: Journeys of Abstraction is drawn primarily from the paintings, sculptures, and works on paper donated to the Museum by the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros. This extraordinarily comprehensive collection provides the foundation for a journey through the history of abstract and concrete art from South America at mid-century. Through March 14th.

    • The WhitneyOrder and Ornament: Roy Lichtenstein's Entablatures - This exhibition will present a diverse array of works on paper by Roy Lichtenstein (1923–1997) related to his Entablatures series from the 1970s. Inspired by the architectural facades and ornamental motifs he encountered around Wall Street and elsewhere in Lower Manhattan, the series addresses many of Lichtenstein's central artistic themes while demonstrating a unique emphasis on texture, surface, relief, and reflectivity. Through September 27th.

    • The Whitney - Alan Michelson - Wolf Nation, - Using webcam footage of red wolves, a critically-endangered indigenous species, Alan Michelson (Mohawk, b. 1953) creates a poetic meditation on threat and survival. Wolf Nation (2018) links the possible eradication of the wolves with that of the Munsees, the Lenape people known as the Wolf tribe, whose lands include portions of present-day New York State. Through January 12th

    • The Museum of Contemporary Art (LA) - Open House: Gala Porras-Kim - Gala Porras-Kim's practice explores how the history of art is built from remnants and fragments of information from the past. More specifically, she explores how our indexes or records are often flawed or willfully misdirected, and how these gaps and lapses in human knowledge have supported colonialist endeavors and global inequality. For her exhibition at MOCA, Porras-Kim seeks to explore the ways in which museums act as stewards of the art it owns. Her exhibition brings together a diverse set of artworks (and other ephemeral materials) to shed light on the role the museum and its staff of curators, registrars, and conservators play in the life of the works in its permanent collection. Through May 11th.

    • Museum of Contemporty Art Chicago - Various Artists: The Shape of the Future - The Shape of the Future features works from the MCA permanent collection that reckon with the dubious dream of a universal design language. Coinciding with the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial, the exhibition explores global modernism as a framework for utopia and speculative world making, marked by traces of labor, political fantasy, and cultural turmoil. Highlighting the histories and ideologies embedded in the built environment, these artists reveal the complexity—and at times absurdity—of the modernist project as a collection of disasters and reveries. Through April 5th.
