PublisherThe Funambulist2014
Eve Bailey and I recorded this conversation in her studio in Crown Heights (Brooklyn) surrounded by her tools and artworks. We talk about her work that consistently engages the body to ‘conquer’ the sculptures she constructs with her own hands. We also discuss about how, despite the fact that her pieces are based on her own body, each body has a chance to appropriate them with no prejudice — their aesthetics allowing so — and eventually find a point of equilibrium, unique for each body. Toward the end of the podcast, she talks about her current research that explores association ...

A Disagreeable Object brings together 20 artists who employ and borrow from the methods and artistic practices that the Surrealists developed in the first half of the century. This is not an exhaustive survey, nor an attempt to re-consider our understanding of Surrealism as an historical movement. Rather, the exhibition offers a view of contemporary sculpture identifying influences and attitudes that have filtered through decades of cultural production. The works in A Disagreeable Object respond to a decidedly contemporary context…

PublisherRenaissance Society2015
The Renaissance Society presents a new, site-specific installation by Gabriel Sierra, the Bogotá-based artist’s first solo show in the United States. Sierra is intrigued by the language of man-made objects and the dimensions of the spaces in which we live, work, and think. His practice employs a variety of techniques – from sculpture and spatial interventions to performance and texts – to examine how the human body functions in relation to its environment. Originally trained in architecture and design, Sierra’s work draws on the history of Latin American Modernism. His project at the Renaissance Society consists of a group of constructions to ...

When the parasite sets in, small white bubbles rise up. They are warm, transparent and may appear anywhere. Cases have been documented in Boston, Cambridge and New York and the number is increasing. The appearance is not on the skin but on the sidewalks. New York artist Michael Rakowitz is the engineer of paraSITE, a temporary living space for the homeless. We may see homeless citizens every day, but now we see them unexpectedly, living inside what looks like a space age tent. paraSITE uses the warm air that escapes buildings to inflate and to provide night-time shelter. The cities and ...

Deal or No Deal is an exhibition sourcebook detailing a field of transactions and negotiations, employing elements of geometric formalism to delineate various positions of inclusion and exclusion, participation and observation, and the particular and universal. The circle, line, and square in its proliferation are brought into relation with the built environment. Intersecting circles, shaded areas, and parallel stripes form abstract Venn diagrams illustrating uncontainable combinations of relationships and differences (insiders and outsiders).

PublisherChristian de Vietri2013
Dear_Tony (2013) is an unauthorized, distributed retrospective of the public sculptures of Tony Smith by Christian de Vietri and A.E. Benenson. Addressed as much to the deceased sculptor and his practice as our contemporary audience, Dear_Tony rethinks the artist’s historic investigations into modular construction, phenomenology, and public space within the contexts of digital fabrication, interactivity, and networked communication. At the same time, Dear_Tony is a means to reflect on the form of the retrospective and how its requirements may be adapted to contemporary conditions of viewership. Dear_Tony consists of a digital sculpture by Christian de Vietri, which is composed of extractable models ...

PublisherArcangel Surfware2013
This code is written in the language Perl – a general purpose UNIX scripting language written in 1987 by Larry Wall. It’s a great language, especially for quick no bullshit text hacks. Also, FYI, it’s my favorite language, the first one I learned, and the one I program in most. .dae is an open standard XML schema for exchanging digital assets aka ”D”igital ”A”sset ”E”xchange. In English: basically it’s a file format that was developed in order to allow different 3d programs to exchange digital information between each other. Otherwise, a 3d object composed in, say, the 3d program Bryce could ...

On Monday, November 16th 2015, I take the subway to Hoboken from the 14th street PATH station. There, I buy a copy of the New York Times and a ham sandwich with a bottle of water. I also carry with me a printed-out-from-the-internet copy of a text written by Robert Smithson in 1967. Next, I go to the automatic ticket machine and buy a one-way Bus 85 ticket to Passaic (including a change for Bus 190) and a one-way train ticket to come back. I am early, so I sit down and open the Times. After futilely trying to glance at the art ...

These line drawings are preliminary plans for sculptures. The sculptures themselves are trilateral, perforated structures that don’t have a “correct” perspective and are intended to be both looked ‘at’ and ‘through’, like a screen. On the page, the same forms are applied as patterns, geometric abstractions, and parred-down faces and bodies.

PublisherFundación Cisneros2012
Gyula Kosice in conversation with/en conversación con Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, the sixth title in the Conversaciones/Conversations series, presents a riveting exchange between Gyula Kosice, one of the key figures in the history of abstract art in Latin America, and Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, the chief curator and director of the CPPC. This publication records conversations conducted over 20 years, which began shortly after Pérez-Barreiro first encountered Kosice’s work in a 1991 retrospective and includes an introduction by Andrea Giunta. Gyula Kosice was born in 1924, in the town of Kosice in today’s Slovakia. When he was four years old, he immigrated to Argentina, where ...
