The discussion, organized in partnership with Common Guild, will be held on May 2 at the Trades Hall of Glasgow and livestreamed on Facebook.
A curious and provocative show considers an age-old tension between form and function, treating the tools of early humans as a kind of art.
DALLAS — In a downstairs gallery the Nasher Sculpture Center, Mai-Thu Perret has created an enclave for her newest sculptural figures — a band of female militants, plus one dog.
On the hunt for one of Emmanuel Fremiet’s cat bronzes? Want to play a game on Man Ray’s chess set? Curious to know which state has the most Louise Bourgeois sculptures? All these pressing queries and more will be answered thanks to the new French Sculpture Census.
DALLAS — It was a normal day in downtown Dallas in June. The heat and humidity were bearing down on me with intense aggression, the traffic on Harry Hines Boulevard was jammed as usual, and glare beaming off of Museum Tower almost blinded me as I made my way to the arts district. Destination? The Nasher Sculpture Center, to see the installation by Berlin-based artist Katharina Grosse. WUNDERBLOCK, which opened June 1 and runs until September, features site-specific works by the artist that blur the lines between painting, sculpture, and installation.
NORTH ADAMS, Massachusetts — Everything is bigger in Texas: the roads, the suburbs, the T-bone steaks, the ten-gallon hats, and certainly the sky. The Texas sky seems to go on and on, an uncanny hue of blue, pierced only by the white-hot nexus of the unrelenting sun. Indeed, waxing poetic with reflections of the human gaze upon the heavens is, in some ways, what James Turrell’s work is all about. His Skyspace series in particular gives the viewer a chance at intimacy with a clear view of the celestial canvas.
