Gallery Run: Why Painting Now?

Gallery Run: Why Painting Now?

Presented with a Daguerreotype reproduction on copper in 1839, French painter Paul Delaroche thought he saw the writing on the wall. “From today,” Delaroche proclaimed, “painting is dead.” Since then, almost two centuries have passed – and still, we paint.  But the question didn’t go away. The 20th century was full of questions about whether […]

Gallery Run: East Greets West

In a way, China is both the oldest and newest country in the world. Isolated for centuries, it has emerged in the last few decades as one of the most powerful players in the global economy. In the art world, Beijing has become a major hot spot for both native and international artists. With exhibitions […]

Gallery Run: Getting Grafik

Gallery Run: Getting Grafik

The Künstlerhaus announced its third “Monat der Grafik” this past April, triggering a series of exhibitions across Vienna. While some came and went quickly, a few are still up and well worth a visit.

Gallery Run: Drawing Attention to Art

Gallery Run: Drawing Attention to Art

“Drawing is visual thinking” writes artist Deanna Petherbridge in her book The Primacy of Drawing – for generating ideas and solving conceptual problems, for training and for gifts, but also for recording life and capturing character, it has been central to western art since the 15th century.

Gallery Run: Subjective Objects

We have a strange relationship to objects: we acquire them, covet them, project meaning onto them. Artists go further, questioning what our relationship is to objects, not taking it for granted, interpreting the objects in unexpected ways. Whether it’s through pop art, found objects, or exotic artifacts, it’s the artist’s job to reinvent, relocate and […]

Gallery Run: Borderline Order

Gallery Run: Borderline Order

At a 2010 TED conference in Washington, D.C., American scientist Amber Case suggested that we may be already living in an age where time travel is possible. Connected with friends all over the world, our lives encompass several time zones at once – which was what our predecessors believed time travel was like. How does […]
