Christodoulos Panayiotou

For nearly a century, Disney’s eclectic assembly of animated characters have persisted the hopeful notion of Happily Ever After. (And the certitude that a duck without pants is always quick to anger.) Like modern-day mythology, Disney stories take seemingly ordinary characters and place them into extraordinary circumstances, through which they eventually persevere and often learn a lesson along the way. Boy meets genie and earns[.....]

Pablo Zuleta Zahr: Event Horizon

The subway in any major city is a conduit, where thousands of lives flow like water through pipes in the journey from past to future. The subway station, however, is like a purgatory—a present-tense place where the journey temporarily hangs in the balance as one waits on the platform, maybe reading a book or reading the looks on the faces of passersby. Some people are[.....]

Roy McMakin: In and On

Maybe it’s a case of seeing something a lot because I am hyper-interested—like when you suddenly notice that every other car on the freeway is a VW Jetta after you begin to drive one yourself—but I have been seeing a lot of design making its way into the fine art world of late. I’m talking about capital “D” Design, which for the purposes of this[.....]

Anthony Discenza: Everything Will Probably Work Out OK

Opening Thursday, May 13th and running through Saturday the 15th is a flash project at Catherine Clark Gallery‘s New York space, the 14th Street Studio. The show, entitled Everything Will Probably Work Out OK, will feature recent work by Oakland, CA-based Anthony Discenza.

Adam Satushek: Annex

Seattle-based photographer Adam Satushek would like to play tricks on your eyes and your mind. His work, currently on view in the solo exhibition, Annex, at Platform Gallery in Seattle, does just that. Often many layers deep, Satushek’s works read like visual puns. The images he captures depict seemingly ordinary spaces and situations, only to reveal upon closer inspection that things aren’t quite as they[.....]

Cory Arcangel

On view through May 9th at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami is a retrospective of  work made by Brooklyn-based artist, Cory Arcangel, from 2002 to present. The solo exhibition, entitled The Sharper Image, examines the prolific artist’s diverse practice, featuring a virtual grab bag of media—video, print, sound, performance, sculpture, drawing and web-based work. An artist, computer programmer and web designer, Arcangel was[.....]

Aurélien Froment and Ryan Gander: Dark After After Dark

On view through May 1st at Khastoo Gallery in Los Angeles is the two person exhibition, Dark After After Dark. The show features the new work of French artist, Aurélien Froment, and English artist, Ryan Gander. Each is presenting a separate film or video projection, a meditation on a singular object in motion. Froment’s Pulmo Marina—a dayglow documentary of sorts about the Egg-yolk Jellyfish—reads like[.....]
