"For Alex Schweder and Ward Shelley, the term “artist in residence” is often a very literal one: Collaborators since 2007, the pair practice what Schweder describes as “performance architecture,” or the exploration of how inhabiting a space affects us, psychologically. So they build interesting structures, and then move in."

Star Attraction: The Wallpaper* Arcade, by Jean Nouvel Design, Neal Feay Company and Sapa

July 29, 2016 - Amy Serafin

Checking into Hotel Wallpaper*, this year’s Handmade exhibition at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, proved to be an awe-inspiring experience: a passageway lined with enormous aluminium shapes, bathed in coloured light. The installation was a collaborative effort between a top aluminium supplier, a leader in creative aluminium treatment, and one of the world’s greatest architects.

The Wallpaper* event occupied an arcade in via San Gregorio, for the second year. ‘A humble location,’ says Alex Rasmussen, president of the Santa Barbara-based aluminium fabricator Neal Feay Company, describing it as a ‘crummy, post-war Italian condominium complex’ with ‘oddball storefronts’ and dog-walking residents passing through on their way to the lifts.

"These two iPhones are all there is to “The Distance of a Day”, an installation by the young Brooklyner David Horvitz that I just saw at the Art Basel fair, in the booth of Berlin’s Chert gallery. Last February, Horvitz got his mom to record a video of the sunset over the sea near Los Angeles, where he was born and grew up. At the same moment that she was taping, he was at a point almost opposite her on the globe, in the Maldives, taping the same sun as it rose."

"We track a lot of data about ourselves. Steps walked, stairs climbed, heart rate and, if you wear an Apple watch, skin temperature.

People don’t know what to do with it, artist Laurie Frick told The Huffington Post. Some people get creeped out by all the data. Some people find it uncomfortable. Yet, according to Frick, 'it’s the secret about who we are.'

'I think in the future we’re going to consume our data as art,' she said. 'I think it’s going to be irresistible.'"

"Although Legrady began in the field of fine arts photography, he transitioned to digital technologies in the mid-1980s. Now he’s considered a new-media pioneer. His work focuses on photographic-based media, interactive digital media installations, and computationally generated visualizations."

We are so pleased for gallery artist, Jun Kaneko, whose sculptures Glen Brown calls "a
harmony of the eternal and the ephemeral, of geological epochs and biological lifetimes, of the persistence of inanimate matter and the fleeting, nebulous nature of the living," in Ceramics Monthly

"'He told me when we first met that his big ambition in life was to write a song that would be playing on all the car radios all across America. And I thought that was a very peculiar ambition,' says Turnbaugh. 'But you need to translate it. He meant he wanted to be famous, and he is.'"

Richard Prince: The Douglas Blair Turnbaugh Collection (1977-1988), June 11 - July 16 at Edward Cella Art & Architecture. 

"Artist Richard Prince is no stranger to controversy. An early pioneer of appropriation art, Prince spent the 1970's and 80's undermining the necessity of authorship in art, re-photogrpahing exisitng images and modifying them only minimally to make them his own. ... With an uncanny ability to tranform the context an dmeaning of an image with a simple gesture or minimal material intervention, Prince established himself as an expert in confiscation and concision."
