From the Archives – The Culture of the Copy

IW-1

Today from the archives, we bring you an early #Hashtags column on images, photography, and the movement from two dimensions to three.

This week, the opening bustle of the fall art season has us thinking about exhibitions and art criticism, and since we often publish Shotgun Reviews on Sundays, it seems especially relevant to share a previous submission from our archives. Although all the Shotgun Reviews we have published are written with sensitivity and care, this one always stands out in our minds as exceptional—not just for the quality of[.....]

Today from our archives we bring you Kelly Nosari’s assessment of Whose Map Is It? at the Institute of International Visual Arts in London. Considering the wars currently being waged over land in Palestine, the Ukraine, Syria, and South Sudan (to name just a few), it is interesting to note how artists approach the representation of territory.

Today from the DS archives, we bring you Allegra Kirkland’s review of Chronicling Catastrophe. Originally published on February 26, 2013, this article is a consideration of Enrique Metinides‘ fifty-year-long career in chronicling disasters that are, in Kirkland’s words, “anonymous crime [scenes] and hauntingly specific [tragedies].” Unfortunately, these images, and ones like them, are ever-relevant in our violent, modern world. The journalistic expression “If it bleeds, it leads” is particularly[.....]

Today we bring you a treat from our archives, Michael Tomeo’s review of Raymond Pettibon’s 2010 show at David Zwirner in New York. The reprinting of this review is occasioned by Pettibon’s upcoming conversation with Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon at Strand Book Store on June 25, 2014, in which they’ll chat about his new book Raymond Pettibon: To Wit. This article was originally published on November 17,[.....]

From the Archives – Post-Fordlândia: A Critical Look at a Failed Development

Factory

Today we bring you a look back at the videos and photographs of Tom Flanagan and Megs Morley, whose project Post-Fordlândia explored the famous village created by Henry Ford in 1928. Author Tori Bush draws parallels between this forsaken 20th-century urban planning project in the Amazon and its counterpart in present-day New Orleans. This article was originally published on September 6, 2012. Post-Fordlândia, the new exhibit[.....]
