Previously, the AAMD restricted the use of those funds to the acquisition of works of art only.</p> <p>This new update to the AAMD&#8217;s Professional Practices in Art Museums helps bring the association&#8217;s policy in line with the American Alliance of Museum&#8217;s (AAM), which has <a href="http://aam-us.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Direct-Care-of-Collections_March-2019.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">for years</a> permitted its membership to use the proceeds from sales of deaccessioned objects for purposes of both acquiring new objects and caring for existing ones in its collections. But while the AAM&#8217;s policy does not define what constitutes legitimate &#8220;direct care&#8221; spending, the AAMD&#8217;s new rule does, referring to costs accrued from the storage and preservation of artworks. As examples, the AAMD cites conservation and restoration efforts and even the purchase of materials like frames, mat boards, and acid-free paper for storage. Exempted from &#8220;direct care&#8221; are salaries for staff and costs associated with organizing temporary exhibitions.</p> <p>Some arts professionals welcome the shift. &#8220;Collections care is a constant need within museums, particularly as acquisitions continue to expand the scale and complexity of their holdings,&#8221; Laura Raicovich, the former president and executive director of the Queens Museum, told Hyperallergic. &#8220;This change facilitates care for existing collections, which is an important aspect of museum stewardship.&#8221;</p> <p>Lisa Fischman, director of the Davis Museum at Wellesley College, applauded the AAMD for offering clarification on the definition of &#8220;direct care&#8221; but raised further questions. &#8220;Given the cultural and financial power of the institutions represented on the Task Force — and via AAMD membership generally — conversations around any &#8216;philosophical shift&#8217; in the field could surely be more inclusive,&#8221; Fischman told Hyperallergic. &#8220;It might be the perfect moment, even, to invite diverse leadership into such a group of &#8216;important collegial institutions.'&#8221;</p> <p>Discussions ahead of today&#8217;s change began as early as 2019, with formal work on officially changing AAMD&#8217;s policies beginning nine months ago with the formation of a task force of 18 members including Christopher Bedford, director of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Glenn Lowry, director of the Museum of Modern Art; and Julián Zugazagoitia, director of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and president of AAMD. Rod Bigelow of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art led the task force. </p> <p>In April 2020, the AAMD approved a series of resolutions that temporarily removed certain restrictions on how museums could spend their funds. In particular, it <a href="https://hyperallergic.com/556328/aamd-spending/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">allowed</a> museums to deaccession works and use proceeds from those sales on operating expenses and other purposes beyond the mere acquisition of new work, pausing its <a href="https://aamd.org/sites/default/files/document/AAMD%20Policy%20on%20Deaccessioning%20website_0.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">sanctions</a> on members who do not comply.</p> <p>Rules around deaccessioning have long been <a href="https://hyperallergic.com/453416/the-deaccessioning-debate-in-museums/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">controversial</a>, with some holding that museum collections should not be treated as liquid assets to weather difficult times. In 2020, the Baltimore Museum of Art <a href="https://hyperallergic.com/597952/baltimore-museum-of-art-auction-canceled/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">halted the auction of three paintings</a> just hours before the sale following weeks of pushback from critics and members of the local arts community. The estimated $65 million from the sale was earmarked for staff salaries, equity programs, and new acquisitions of works by diverse artists.</p> <p>In a statement, Zugazagoitia acknowledged that AAMD&#8217;s members sought &#8220;more flexibility&#8221; and that AAMD&#8217;s policy &#8220;was no longer in sync&#8221; with those of other organizations, like the AAM. &#8220;This focused change addresses changes requested by members, ensures our approach is consistent with norms across the museum field, and provides crucial guidance to members on how to implement a ‘direct care’ standard should their institutions choose to do so,&#8221; he said.</p> Collector Who Says He Burned Frida Kahlo Work for NFT Under Investigation https://hyperallergic.com/765443/collector-who-burned-frida-kahlo-work-for-nft-under-investigation/ Hyperallergic urn:uuid:324c792c-f7a5-c21e-29b5-bc1c40ced3d7 Fri, 30 Sep 2022 23:29:25 +0200 <figure><img width="720" height="388" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?fit=720%2C388&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="" loading="lazy" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?w=2400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=720%2C388&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=1200%2C647&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=768%2C414&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=1536%2C828&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=2048%2C1104&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=1568%2C845&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=400%2C216&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=706%2C381&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?w=2340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2340w" sizes="(max-width: 34.9rem) calc(100vw - 2rem), (max-width: 53rem) calc(8 * (100vw / 12)), (min-width: 53rem) calc(6 * (100vw / 12)), 100vw" /></figure>Martín Mobarak may have broken Mexican law, but he burned the proof. <figure><img width="720" height="388" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?fit=720%2C388&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="" loading="lazy" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?w=2400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=720%2C388&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=1200%2C647&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=768%2C414&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=1536%2C828&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=2048%2C1104&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=1568%2C845&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=400%2C216&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?resize=706%2C381&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-2.jpg?w=2340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2340w" sizes="(max-width: 34.9rem) calc(100vw - 2rem), (max-width: 53rem) calc(8 * (100vw / 12)), (min-width: 53rem) calc(6 * (100vw / 12)), 100vw" /></figure> <p>In late July, crypto-businessman Martín Mobarak hosted a gaudy event at his Miami home — complete with flame throwers and posing models — during which he <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_M23F73G0Jc" target="_blank">burned</a> an allegedly authentic Frida Kahlo drawing into a martini glass while a mariachi band played in the background. He then announced his plans to sell the work in the form of 10,000 NFTs. Now, Mexico&#8217;s chief cultural authority, the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura (INBAL), is investigating the incident.</p> <p>In a statement shared with Hyperallergic, INBAL suggested that Mobarak may have broken federal law in destroying the work. The organization also stated that the collector did not seek the required permission to replicate the drawing, and questioned its authenticity.</p> <p>In the video of the stunt, Mobarak is handed a black bag ostensibly containing Frida Kahlo&#8217;s 1944 &#8220;Fantasmones Siniestros,&#8221; a drawing on a double-sided page from one of the artist&#8217;s diaries. Mobarak unscrews the work from its frame, places it in a martini glass, and burns it, the ash falling onto dry ice. The camera pans away from the onlookers as a crowd cheers. </p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <iframe loading="lazy" class="youtube-player" width="780" height="439" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_M23F73G0Jc?version=3&#038;rel=1&#038;showsearch=0&#038;showinfo=1&#038;iv_load_policy=1&#038;fs=1&#038;hl=en-US&#038;autohide=2&#038;wmode=transparent" allowfullscreen="true" style="border:0;" sandbox="allow-scripts allow-same-origin allow-popups allow-presentation"></iframe> </div></figure> <p>&#8220;History was made,&#8221; Mobarak said in a statement emailed to Hyperallergic. &#8220;I made this profound act for children and the less fortunate around the world to receive hope,&#8221; he added, explaining that his 11-year-old daughter has Crouzon syndrome. The project&#8217;s <a href="https://fridanft.org/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">website</a>, where Mobarak is selling the digital tokens for 3 ETH (around $1,350 for each NFT, and $13.5 million if he sells them all), explains that &#8220;a portion of the proceeds&#8221; will support the Autism Society, the Children&#8217;s Craniofacial Association, the Fundación Origen (an organization that helps women who have experienced violence), and Mexico City&#8217;s Frida Kahlo Museum and Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas. </p> <p>Mobarak also pledged proceeds toward the Palacio de Bellas Artes, which INBAL stated that it has not and will not accept. INBAL also stated that, if the work is real, Mobarak&#8217;s action went against federal law: Frida Kahlo&#8217;s oeuvre has been designated a &#8220;national monument&#8221; since 1984 and its destruction is therefore illegal. Additionally, the Bank of Mexico, as trustee of the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo estate, owns the reproduction rights to Kahlo&#8217;s work, but according to INBAL, Mobarak did not secure permission to reproduce the drawing.</p> <p>When asked whether he sought permission to create NFTs of &#8220;Fantasmones Siniestros,” Mobarak simply stated, &#8220;I own the painting &#8230; By burning it, I am immortalizing [it.]&#8221; A statement on the project&#8217;s<strong> </strong><a href="https://fridanft.org/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">website</a> similarly avoids acknowledging that the work was destroyed, cryptically declaring that it was &#8220;permanently transitioned into the Metaverse on July 30th, 2022.&#8221;</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="423" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1200x650.jpg?resize=780%2C423&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765621" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?resize=1200%2C650&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?resize=720%2C390&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?resize=768%2C416&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?resize=1536%2C831&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?resize=2048%2C1108&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?resize=1568%2C849&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?resize=400%2C217&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?resize=706%2C382&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1.jpg?w=2340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2340w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Mobarak with the alleged Kahlo drawing</figcaption></figure> <p>James Oles, a professor and curator of Latin American art at Wellesley College near Boston, told Hyperallergic in an interview that Mexico&#8217;s enforcement of both copyright infringement and laws protecting the destruction of national monuments is limited, and that he doubted US authorities would intervene.</p> <p>Whether the drawing is really by the hand of Kahlo is also under investigation by INBAL.

(The High Museum confirmed in an email to Hyperallergic that it displayed the work in 2013, and the Nelson Atkins Museum said that it received the work in the same year as part of a traveling exhibition but did not hang it.)</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="422" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1-1200x649.jpg?resize=780%2C422&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765622" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?resize=1200%2C649&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?resize=720%2C389&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?resize=768%2C415&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?resize=1536%2C830&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?resize=2048%2C1107&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?resize=1568%2C847&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?resize=400%2C216&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?resize=706%2C382&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/My-project-1-1.jpg?w=2340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2340w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>James Oles told Hyperallergic that &#8220;no one could tell from the video&#8221; whether the drawing was real or not.</figcaption></figure> <p>Mary-Anne Martin, an established dealer who sold the drawing in 2004 and again in 2013, told <em><a href="https://www.vice.com/en/article/aken7k/rida-kahlo-nft-mexico" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">VICE</a></em> that she had never heard of Mobarak and called the situation &#8220;creepy.&#8221; Martin has not responded to Hyperallergic&#8217;s request for comment.</p> <p>Oles explained that the proliferation of fakes plagues Kahlo&#8217;s legacy.

The event is very informal, registration is not required; just show up and paint anywhere in Easton.</p> <p>The event is centered on the Karl Stirner Arts Trail, a trail along the Bushkill Creek that is lined with sculpture. I&#8217;ve included some photos of the trail above, along with a shot of the paints laid out in the Vasari showroom.</p> <p><strong>Probably the best thing about this event</strong> is that you can stop by the Vasari workshop and showroom (in the Simon Silk Mill complex off of N. 13th Street) and stock your palette <em>for free</em> with any of Vasari&#8217;s extensive selection of oil colors!</p> <p>If you like, you can leave your finished paintings at the Vasari showroom to be displayed during October, also making them eligible for prizes. (You may want to consider taking a frame wired for hanging.)</p> <p>Vasari is also providing prizes for the event in the form of sets of their oil colors. Judging and the awarding of prizes will be on Saturday, October 15th at 5:00pm. </p> <p>A friend and I went up earlier this week, had a great time and are planning to go up again next Saturday. I use Vasari paint regularly, but I had a great time trying out a variety of colors I might not have wanted to get a whole tube of just to try, and discovering new colors I love. </p> <p>The Vasari workshop and showroom, for which there is ample free parking, faces one of the entrances to the Karl Stirner Arts Trail. The trail itself has a separate parking area nearby, though it&#8217;s fairly small.</p> <p>Easton is about an hour and a half from the Philadelphia area, and (depending on time of day and traffic) a fairly easy drive up the turnpike. </p> <p>(Navigation note: Driving directions from Google Maps or Waze may indicate you&#8217;re at their address a little too early; keep going to the parking area at the <em>end</em> of Simon Blvd and turn left. <a href="https://goo.gl/maps/WF4nSbS4TYHakJ9X7">Google map</a>)</p> <p>More info <a

historical shows alongside new bodies of work from contemporary artists. These start 1,000 years back with the Maya Codex&nbsp;of&nbsp;Mexico (Códice Maya de México) at the Getty, then jump to the 20th century with exhibitions devoted to the &#8220;Mama of Dada&#8221; Beatrice Wood at LA Louver, and a homage to the late transgressive performance artist Bob Flanagan at Kristina Kite. At Shulamit Nazarian, Trenton Doyle Hancock reveals the latest chapter of his ongoing, idiosyncratic saga, while new hand-crocheted sculptures by Luis Flores are on view at Craft Contemporary.</p> <p class="has-text-align-center">***</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="423" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/pucciiannone-1200x651.jpg?resize=780%2C423&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-764508" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/pucciiannone.jpg?resize=1200%2C651&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/pucciiannone.jpg?resize=720%2C390&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/pucciiannone.jpg?resize=768%2C416&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/pucciiannone.jpg?resize=400%2C217&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/pucciiannone.jpg?resize=706%2C383&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/pucciiannone.jpg?w=1400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1400w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Left: Sarah Pucci, &#8220;Beautiful Memories&#8221; (c. 1970), beads, sequins, pins, foam, medallion, 4 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches; right: Dorothy Iannone, &#8220;Undulations&#8221; (1962), framed collage, handmade Japanese paper and gold leaf on paper, framed dimensions: 18 7/8 x 15 3/4 inches (photos by Paul Salveson, images courtesy the artist and Hannah Hoffman, Los Angeles)</figcaption></figure> <h4 id="h-sarah-pucci-and-dorthy-iannone"><em>Sarah Pucci and Dorthy Iannone</em></h4> <p>Dorothy Iannone was born in Boston but has spent much of her peripatetic career in Europe, living in Iceland, Switzerland, London, and Berlin. Beginning in 1959 and continuing for over three decades, Iannone’s mother, Sarah Pucci, would send her daughter small sculptures she crafted from beads, sequins, and foam — homespun baroque assemblages to keep her company on her travels. This show at Hannah Hoffman pairs 15 sculptures by Pucci with 4 collages that Iannone made on a 1962 trip to Japan, and a 1980 video about her mother, drawing connections between the formal and familial.</p> <p class="has-small-font-size">Hannah Hoffman Gallery (<a href="https://www.praz-delavallade.com/exhibition/dan-levenson-two-proposals-towards-a-new-art-school" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">hannahhoffman.la</a>)<br />2504 West 7th Street, Suite C, Westlake, Los Angeles<br />Through October 15</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator has-alpha-channel-opacity"/> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="967" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Thank-God-for-Television-1958-1200x1488.jpg?resize=780%2C967&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-764517" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Thank-God-for-Television-1958.jpg?resize=1200%2C1488&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Thank-God-for-Television-1958.jpg?resize=720%2C893&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Thank-God-for-Television-1958.jpg?resize=768%2C952&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Thank-God-for-Television-1958.jpg?resize=1239%2C1536&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1239w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Thank-God-for-Television-1958.jpg?resize=400%2C496&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Thank-God-for-Television-1958.jpg?resize=706%2C875&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Thank-God-for-Television-1958.jpg?w=1400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1400w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Beatrice Wood, &#8220;Thank God for Television&#8221; (1958), glazed earthenware and Indian jewelry, 15 x 10 3/4 inches (courtesy L.A.

Known as the “Mama of Dada” for her lifelong friendship with Marcel Duchamp, Wood’s own work encompassed early Dada and Art Deco-style drawings and prints, as well as ceramics, which she devoted herself to for the second half of her life. Drawing on the collection of Francis M. Naumann, a scholar and friend of Wood’s, this exhibition covers the years 1917–1996, capturing the breadth of her idiosyncratic oeuvre.</p> <p class="has-small-font-size">L.A.

Soon enough, we’ll be setting the clocks back once again, which increasingly feels like an effort to recover lost time. For lifelong goths such as myself, however, this season is all about the city’s many thrills and chills, and of course the casual reminders of our own mortality. Our monthly highlights include topographical studies of battlegrounds and cemeteries, ghosts of Manhattan’s geological past, and the terrors of theocratic rule.

The maps and drawings in Archaeology of Future Remembrance, displayed around windows that look out to the Manhattan skyline, explore how US colonialism directly influenced present redevelopment in her hometown of Ho Chi Minh City. Beneath this, the colorful paintings in Terra Rouge hearken to ancient earthworks excavated from a site where both 19th-century French colonialists planted their first rubber trees and the People’s Army of Vietnam launched its 1972 Easter Offensive against the US military. Together, these bodies of work posit that no state structure has an intrinsic right to any land and that colonialism embeds itself deep into culture long after its departure.</p> <h2 id="h-athena-latocha-the-remains-of-winter"><em><a href="https://www.green-wood.com/event/the-remains-of-winter/2022-10-04/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Athena LaTocha: The Remains of Winter</a></em></h2> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="585" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-1200x900.jpg?resize=780%2C585&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-764372" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=1200%2C900&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=720%2C540&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=768%2C576&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=1536%2C1152&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=2048%2C1536&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=800%2C600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 800w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=400%2C300&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=200%2C150&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=1568%2C1176&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?resize=706%2C530&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/LaTocha_The-Remains-of-Winter-Battle-Hill_East_3992-1-scaled.jpg?w=2340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2340w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Athena LaTocha,&nbsp;&#8220;Remains of Winter (Battle Hill, East)&#8221; (2022) (courtesy the artist)</figcaption></figure> <p><strong>When</strong>: through December 23<br /><strong>Where</strong>: Green-Wood Cemetery (500 25th Street, South Slope, Brooklyn)</p> <p>Lakota-Ojibwe artist Athena LaTocha is exhuming what lies beneath the Brooklyn cemetery’s surface in her latest installations, which are displayed atop Battle Hill and in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel. <em>The Remains of Winter</em> may seem like a bizarre name choice for early autumn, but it actually refers to the remnants of prehistoric glaciers that became these lands.

In the first room, a dazzling beaded-mesh wall stands adjacent to a giant wire tondo; in between are a series of riotous <em>Soundsuits </em>on a plinth. With barely a foot in the door, Cave’s aesthetic world is already overwhelming.&nbsp;</p> <p>Yet the exhibition’s second room is quiet. Here, “Penny Catcher” (2009) dangles from the wall like a poignant call to remember the depth of American racial violence. Cave has clothed an antique carved wooden head of a Black man with his mouth open (a flea market relic from a carnival toss game) in a formal black suit with white spats that rest on crushed Pepsi cans. This effigy speaks of morbidity, pain, and all the country fairs where White folks did not question the enmity of degradation.&nbsp;</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="1040" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-1200x1600.jpg?resize=780%2C1040&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765086" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=1200%2C1600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=720%2C960&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=768%2C1024&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=1152%2C1536&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1152w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=1536%2C2048&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=900%2C1200&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 900w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=600%2C800&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 600w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=300%2C400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 300w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=150%2C200&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 150w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=1568%2C2091&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=400%2C533&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?resize=706%2C941&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Nick-Cave-Penny-Catcher-scaled.jpg?w=1920&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1920w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Nick Cave, &#8220;Penny Catcher&#8221; (2009), mixed media including vintage coin toss, suit, shoes, and aluminum cans, 74 × 23 × 14 in. Collection of Margo &amp; Robert Roth (photo Debra Brehmer/Hyperallergic)</figcaption></figure> <p>Cave’s 30-year Chicago-based career has always wandered between foreign lands of materiality. His love of pattern and textiles meets his pleasure in flea market kitsch as he gathers bouquets of buttons, fake fur, beads, plastic flowers, and seemingly anything that sparkles to whorl it into lavish, almost-domestic explosions of exuberance. As a hunter-gatherer and bricoleur, Cave emerges from a Midwestern art history that draws on cultural refuse. His antecedents include Chicago artists such as Gregory Warmack, aka Mr. Imagination, who made bottle cap thrones; Ray Yoshida and Roger Brown (Maxwell Street flea market doyens); and David Philpot, with his embellished giant staffs. He also cites musician George Clinton and his bands Parliament and Funkadelic as an early influence. But Cave has his own enigmatic ways to funnel the funk through histories of adversity. And this is what gives his work a lingering simmer. </p> <p>The <em>Soundsuits</em> harken back to African art and ritual, in which masks and costumes are activated with dance and music. The colonialist impulse of the Euro-American world, with its desire for acquisition and categorization, bled the life from these objects by displacing them from their contexts and isolating them on museum pedestals. Cave repairs the breach by stirring the ceramic birds, the racist artifacts, the buttons and mass produced twirlers into showers of archival evidence that illuminate how popular culture places a jolly brand of racism into middle-class homes alongside Christmas ornaments and martini glasses. Cave’s tales of vernacular culture resonate with both love and anger.&nbsp;These emotional currents collide most poignantly in his recent fake flower <em>Soundsuits</em>, which first appear as joyful gardens but quickly wilt into funereal shrouds. The artist dedicates these suits to George Floyd, titling them with the&nbsp; number of minutes it took Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin to strangle him, “8:46” (2021).&nbsp;</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="585" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago-1200x900.jpg?resize=780%2C585&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765089" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=1200%2C900&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=720%2C540&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=768%2C576&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=1536%2C1152&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=2048%2C1536&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=800%2C600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 800w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=400%2C300&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=200%2C150&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=1568%2C1176&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Entry-to-the-Nick-Cave-show-Chicago.jpg?resize=706%2C530&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Installation view of entry to Nick Cave: Forothermore at the MCA Chicago.

The large installation “Time and Again” (2000) is a tribute to his grandfather. A wall installation presents his old tools amid religious artifacts, accompanied by a series of metal rims assembled on the floor. Part tomb, part living room, Cave celebrates a man who used his hands, who fixed things and made furniture, who held to his faith. Another kind of memorial, “Truss” (1999) is dedicated to a friend who died of AIDS. Assorted work gloves are sealed in resin the color of amber. Cave again honors the hand, closing the gap between labor and art, vulnerability and protection.&nbsp;</p> <p>The notion of “otherness” tucked into the exhibition&#8217;s title, <em>Forothermore, </em>is a reminder that otherness implies marginalization, but there can be freedom in that — the freedom to build totems from sock monkeys, to create from and with kitsch, the freedom for marginalized people to transform their armor into fashion. The interlocking fiberglass arms in another installation, “Platform” (2018), offer a dense emotional conclusion to the show. The dark hands link together, forming chains that dangle into a foreground of gramophones, cast male heads, and carved eagles. There’s something about the absolute resilience of those strong arms, linking together, that feels impenetrably triumphant.&nbsp;</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="1040" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-1200x1600.jpg?resize=780%2C1040&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765090" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=1200%2C1600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=720%2C960&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=768%2C1024&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=1152%2C1536&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1152w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=1536%2C2048&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=900%2C1200&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 900w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=600%2C800&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 600w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=300%2C400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 300w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=150%2C200&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 150w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=1568%2C2091&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=400%2C533&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?resize=706%2C941&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Detail-Truss.-Photo-by-author-scaled.jpg?w=1920&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1920w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Nick Cave, &#8220;Truss,&#8221; detail (1999),&nbsp;mixed media including metal, resin and gloves, dimensions variable (courtesy Nick Cave, photo Debra Brehmer/Hyperallergic)</figcaption></figure> <p><a href="https://visit.mcachicago.org/exhibitions/nick-cave-forothermore/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Nick Cave: Forothermore</a> <em>continues at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (220 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, Illinois) through October 2.

When the dazzle of the lights goes, so does the sense of spectacle: it is as if we are no longer meant to look at the art. But on the fourth floor of the New Museum, the Canadian-born, Paris-based artist Kapwani Kiwanga invites viewers to look with only the quiet glow of natural light seeping in through the skylights. In so doing, she illuminates a nuanced way of seeing race.&nbsp;</p> <p>Titled <em><a href="https://www.newmuseum.org/exhibitions/view/kapwani-kiwanga-off-grid" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Off-Grid</a></em>, Kiwanga’s exhibition is comprised of two monumental sculptures that offer complementary critiques of sight and visibility. The installation is based on years of the artist’s own research on the politics of light, visibility, and race. While calls to resist the racist mechanisms that erase and make invisible Blackness remain pressing, Kiwanga points to the perniciousness of being seen by connecting “lantern laws,” 18th-century statutes requiring enslaved people to carry lanterns after dark when unaccompanied by a White person, and floodlights used in contemporary police surveillance.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="1040" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-1200x1600.jpg?resize=780%2C1040&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765112" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=1200%2C1600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=720%2C960&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=768%2C1024&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=1152%2C1536&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1152w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=1536%2C2048&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=900%2C1200&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 900w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=600%2C800&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 600w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=300%2C400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 300w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=150%2C200&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 150w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=1568%2C2091&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=400%2C533&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?resize=706%2C941&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5878-scaled.jpg?w=1920&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1920w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Installation view of <em>Kapwani Kiwanga: Off-Grid</em> at The New Museum. Pictured: &#8220;Cloak&#8221; (2022)</figcaption></figure> <p>“Cloak” (2022) is a towering sculpture composed of two intersecting parts, both of which are fashioned from aluminum once used to make police floodlights. Kiwanga has seemingly emptied the floodlights of their power, having subjected them to a series of painstaking transformations: melting the aluminum down, shaping it into wires, loading it into a spray gun, and spray painting it onto steel. Though the floodlights are rendered unrecognizable by the artist&#8217;s alchemy, their task of surveillance continues to loom large. One of the sculpture’s two parts consists of a beaded partition, a device that simultaneously conceals and reveals what’s on the other side; any effort to hide behind it only heightens a person’s awareness of their partial visibility. The sense of being watched is redoubled by the other part of the sculpture, where a zigzagging pattern of mirrors coaxes you to confront your own reflection. Though the sculpture is titled “Cloak<em>,” </em>nothing can hide underneath it.&nbsp;</p> <p>On the opposite side of the room, “Maya Bantu” (2019) beckons with the possibility of opacity, a welcome retort to the cool transparency of “Cloak.” The labyrinthine sculpture is made from sisal fiber, a plant Kiwanga began to research after she was introduced to it at plantations in Tanzania. Sisal is indigenous to Mexico, but German colonizers brought it to Tanzania in the 19th century. Despite the insidious histories that underlay the material, “Maya Bantu” feels like an embrace, a shroud that protects against an intrusive gaze. In the dense folds of its wooly and light absorbent-texture, secrecy seems possible.&nbsp;</p> <p>The exhibition’s title, <em>Off-Grid</em>, can be interpreted in multiple overlapping ways. It hints at the absence of electric illumination. It also alludes to the artist’s practice of removing materials from the power structures — both physical and political — that they usually require to function. But most of all, Kiwanga’s exhibition reflects a yearning for a way of being that is off the grid: a fugitive life where people — in particular those of us who are racially othered — can slip beneath the glaring gaze of authority.&nbsp;</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="585" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894-1200x900.jpg?resize=780%2C585&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765114" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=1200%2C900&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=720%2C540&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=768%2C576&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=1536%2C1152&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=2048%2C1536&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=800%2C600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 800w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=400%2C300&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=200%2C150&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=1568%2C1176&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/IMG_5894.jpg?resize=706%2C530&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Installation view of <em>Kapwani Kiwanga: Off-Grid</em> at The New Museum.

He writes:</li></ul> <blockquote class="wp-block-quote"><p>There remains in my view much to love about the French New Wave, but Godard’s association with it does little to clarify the direction his films later took. Other New Wave filmmakers weren’t nearly as wide-ranging in their interests. During a recent screening of Eric Rohmer’s <em>La Collectionneuse</em>, I was struck by the hermetism of the film’s characters, their cushioned seclusion in the countryside and the limitation of their field of concern to only themselves and each other. I adore Francois Truffaut’s <em>Stolen Kisses</em>, but its references to the Paris upheavals of 1968 serve as little more than atmospheric support for the hapless Antoine Doinel’s stumbling and whimsical misadventures with women. In the years those films were released, 1967 and 1968, Godard was becoming increasingly intoxicated by revolution, until he was eventually compelled to lead a protest against the 1968 Cannes Film Festival in solidarity with the general strike in Paris. “We’re talking solidarity with students and workers,” Godard barked. “You’re talking dolly shots and close-ups; you’re assholes.”</p></blockquote> <ul><li>Gregory Sholette writes about <a href="https://www.art-agenda.com/criticism/491800/a-short-and-incomplete-history-of-bad-curating-as-collective-resistance" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Documenta 15 and &#8220;bad&#8221; curating</a> for Art Agenda:</li></ul> <blockquote class="wp-block-quote"><p>Documenta 15 has its own historical repetitions to deal with. Germany’s twentieth-century war crimes and genocide hovered over the show from the start, prompting nearly daily flagellations in the press over allegations of antisemitism. Certainly, there are outstanding issues to be addressed with Documenta 15, especially regarding several decades-old, pernicious caricatures, two of which were removed from view in June. While such images offend, isn’t it the very nature of an archive to be made up of what it actually contains, in order not to devolve into a cherry-picked, or censored, collection of select historical documents? All of this preceded Hito Steyerl’s withdrawal of her artwork in early July, an act that may have been aimed at hastening the necessary conversation. Nevertheless, Steyerl’s vanishing act appears to have had little lasting impact, which is curious given that she is not just one of the only German citizens participating in Documenta 15, but a prominent artist with non-European ancestry. Silence from the mainstream German press also greeted a communique sent from the Brazilian-Jewish cultural center Casa do Povo [The People’s House] on July 20, which stated that while they were not ultimately invited to participate after an initial visit by ruangrupa, they were still involved and supportive of Documenta 15’s “unique, decentralized community of artists, friends.”</p></blockquote> <ul><li>There&#8217;s a state on the island of Corvo and <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcOEc31aEqo" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">no one apparently can explain it</a>:</li></ul> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <iframe loading="lazy" class="youtube-player" width="780" height="439" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NcOEc31aEqo?version=3&#038;rel=1&#038;showsearch=0&#038;showinfo=1&#038;iv_load_policy=1&#038;fs=1&#038;hl=en-US&#038;autohide=2&#038;wmode=transparent" allowfullscreen="true" style="border:0;" sandbox="allow-scripts allow-same-origin allow-popups allow-presentation"></iframe> </div></figure> <ul><li>For Inquest, <a href="https://inquest.org/culture-wars-and-criminalization/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Kay Whitlock writes about the Culture Wars and criminalization</a> and how we should expect more with the erosion of our civil rights:</li></ul> <blockquote class="wp-block-quote"><p>Within this longer arc, culture wars are not “distractions,” as some people believe, meant to deflect our attention from more serious issues.

Again and again, the profoundly anti-democratic notion of a deserving us and an undeserving, criminal them is distilled into an oppressive worldview and translated into governance. It’s the reason the so-called war on drugs, the war on immigrants, and the war on welfare, to name but a few domestic wars that exploded in the 1980s and ‘90s, have been so effective at growing and maintaining the U.S. carceral state and mindset.</p></blockquote> <ul><li>NPR&#8217;s <em>All Things Considered</em> explains how a &#8220;<a href="https://www.npr.org/2022/09/23/1121435229/berlin-clubs-techno-berghain-kitkatclub" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">whiskey-fueled meeting in 1949 led to Berlin&#8217;s famed techno scene</a>.&#8221; Bobby Allyn writes: </li></ul> <blockquote class="wp-block-quote"><p>Tired of the East receiving those final-hour dollars, West Berlin moved its curfew one hour later.

Rather than thinking of AI as a way to sideline artists, I think it&#8217;s more likely that it helps creatives realize their visions with greater ease. Because, sure anyone can take a photo, but that doesn&#8217;t mean everyone can take a <em>good</em> photograph.</p> <p>In contemporary art, art observers have long noticed how artists when they enter the land of blue-chip galleries start churning out increasingly similar and mundane pieces, often turning aesthetic innovations into branded objects for the very wealthy. So, I thought I&#8217;d try using press releases from five &#8220;blue-chip&#8221; (aka really expensive) art galleries in New York City —&nbsp;or at least as much of the press release that the AI system would allow me to input — and see how <a href="https://labs.openai.com/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">DALL-E</a> (one of the most popular AI tools nowadays) reimagined the exhibitions using only those words.</p> <p>So, without further delay,&nbsp;here are the results. The human-made works on are on the left, and DALL-E&#8217;s reimagined versions on the right, with some commentary. Is the future already here?</p> <h2 id="h-rick-lowe-s-meditations-on-social-sculpture-at-gagosian-gallery-541-west-24th-street-chelsea-manhattan">Rick Lowe&#8217;s <em><a href="https://gagosian.com/exhibitions/2022/rick-lowe-meditations-on-social-sculpture/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Meditations on Social Sculpture</a></em> at Gagosian gallery (541 West 24th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan)</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="390" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e-1200x600.jpg?resize=780%2C390&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765192" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e.jpg?resize=1200%2C600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e.jpg?resize=720%2C360&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e.jpg?resize=768%2C384&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e.jpg?resize=1536%2C768&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e.jpg?resize=1568%2C784&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e.jpg?resize=400%2C200&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e.jpg?resize=706%2C353&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ricklowe-dall-e.jpg?w=2048&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Left, Rick Lowe&#8217;s &#8220;Victoria Square Project&#8221; (2022), and, right, DALL-E&#8217;s interpretation of Gagosian gallery&#8217;s press release for Lowe&#8217;s exhibition (photo on left Hrag Vartanian/Hyperallergic, photo on right by DALL-E)</figcaption></figure> <p>I have to say, I think AI might win this one, though the DALL-E rendering definitely feels more like a concept drawing rather than a finished work.

The original work also has thick textures and patterns on its surface but I imagine texture is something AI will only get better at rendering.</p> <h2>Thomas Ruff: <em><a href="https://www.davidzwirner.com/exhibitions/2022/thomas-ruff-dope/press-release" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">d.o.pe.</a></em> at David Zwirner gallery (533 West 19th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan)</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="390" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e-1200x600.jpg?resize=780%2C390&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765193" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e.jpg?resize=1200%2C600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e.jpg?resize=720%2C360&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e.jpg?resize=768%2C384&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e.jpg?resize=1536%2C768&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e.jpg?resize=1568%2C784&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e.jpg?resize=400%2C200&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e.jpg?resize=706%2C353&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/ruff-dall-e.jpg?w=2048&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>Left, Thomas Ruff&#8217;s &#8220;d.o.pe.04 I&#8221; (2022) and, right, DALL-E&#8217;s interpretation of the Zwirner press release for Ruff&#8217;s exhibition (photo on left Hrag Vartanian/Hyperallergic, photo on right by DALL-E)</figcaption></figure> <p>Artist Thomas Ruff seems perfectly suited for AI, and DALL-E&#8217;s version is quite convincing.

Do you hear the darkness blowing</em>. The imagery needs little explanation: The painful depiction of violence wrought by authorities against women and children arguably hits harder than Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica.”&nbsp;</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Artwork by Marjane Satrapi, creator of PERSEPOLIS <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/14.0.0/72x72/1f525.png" alt=" The Dazzling Local Arts Scene of Southeast Los Angeles https://hyperallergic.com/764861/the-dazzling-local-arts-scene-of-southeast-los-angeles/ Hyperallergic urn:uuid:e056b97b-170e-5885-21b2-09b599d17855 Thu, 29 Sep 2022 23:23:19 +0200 <figure><img width="720" height="540" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?fit=720%2C540&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="" loading="lazy" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?w=1400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=720%2C540&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=1200%2C900&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=768%2C576&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=800%2C600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 800w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=400%2C300&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=200%2C150&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=706%2C530&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w" sizes="(max-width: 34.9rem) calc(100vw - 2rem), (max-width: 53rem) calc(8 * (100vw / 12)), (min-width: 53rem) calc(6 * (100vw / 12)), 100vw" /></figure>In the shadow of a planned $150 million cultural center designed by Frank Gehry, a number of grassroots arts organizations are thriving in the predominantly Latino region. <figure><img width="720" height="540" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?fit=720%2C540&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="" loading="lazy" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?w=1400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=720%2C540&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=1200%2C900&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=768%2C576&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=800%2C600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 800w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=400%2C300&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=200%2C150&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERPRIDE.jpg?resize=706%2C530&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w" sizes="(max-width: 34.9rem) calc(100vw - 2rem), (max-width: 53rem) calc(8 * (100vw / 12)), (min-width: 53rem) calc(6 * (100vw / 12)), 100vw" /></figure> <p>Every Wednesday evening for the past six months, about two dozen artists gather in a former furniture store on a quiet street roughly 10<strong> </strong>miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

I always felt out of place in most spaces,” Josie Vasquez, who has been taking life drawing classes at the SELA Art Center since it opened in March, said in an email. “I never imagined I’d find a space of artists in my neighborhood, that looked like me, that shared similar struggles and experiences; that I related to.”</p> <p>The SELA Art Center was founded by Hector “Tetris” Arias, a street artist and muralist who was born in the Mexican state of Michoacán, but raised in Southeast LA. “My love of art started in Michoacán with murals, Mesoamerican, Indigenous stuff. When I came here, I related to gang writing in the streets.” Arias told Hyperallergic. “I began learning gang letter structure, typography, got introduced to break dancing, the four elements [of hip-hop] &#8230; It gave me something to do. There wasn’t a lot of access to art schools.”</p> <p>Alongside working on his own artwork, <a href="https://www.cccmla.com/mexicois" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">public commissions</a>, and projects like the Dodgers and <a href="https://www.lamag.com/culturefiles/lakers-house-south-central/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Lakers Houses</a>, Arias has organized youth mural workshops around LA County. He says it was always a dream of his to open an art center in his community. “I wanted something for the neighborhood, to come in and build culture,” he says. The pieces fell into place earlier this year when he saw a “For Lease” sign on a furniture store located a few blocks from his old high school in Bell.&nbsp;</p> <p>Despite his street art pedigree, he knew he wanted to start with a life drawing class: “That’s one of the really great classes for artists, the fundamentals.” Arias reached out to a figure model he knew and held the first life drawing workshop on March 30. “It was a big success,” he beams. “Everything was really emotional. I saw tears, and a lot of excitement.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="585" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL-1200x900.jpg?resize=780%2C585&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-764874" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL.jpg?resize=1200%2C900&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL.jpg?resize=720%2C540&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL.jpg?resize=768%2C576&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL.jpg?resize=800%2C600&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 800w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL.jpg?resize=400%2C300&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL.jpg?resize=200%2C150&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL.jpg?resize=706%2C530&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/SELAARTCENTERMURAL.jpg?w=1400&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1400w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>SELA Art Center (photo Matt Stromberg/Hyperallergic)</figcaption></figure> <p>Encouraged by that initial enthusiasm, the SELA Art Center has expanded to offer breakdancing classes and is collaborating with the <a href="https://www.somoslea.org/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Latino Equality Alliance</a> on a mural workshop this fall, combining the history of muralism with the creation of an artwork on SELA Art Center’s facade. Ambitious plans to branch out into additional creative arenas are driven by a commitment to serve the community. “Tetris and our team could have gone any number of places, but our roots are in Bell,” Hilda Estrada, SELA Art Center’s cultural and events director, told Hyperallergic.</p> <p>The cities of Southeast LA — Bell, Huntington Park, South Gate, Lynwood, Downey, Vernon, and Commerce, to name a few — are also called the Gateway Cities, extending south from just below Downtown LA to the port of Long Beach and from the South Bay cities of Inglewood and Torrance in the west to the border of Orange County. Although the region is now overwhelmingly Latino, it was developed a century ago as a <a href="https://www.linktv.org/the-right-to-live-southeast-los-angeles-life-in-three-moments" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">“whites only” industrial and manufacturing hub</a>, with redlining and racist housing covenants in place to keep it that way. Beginning in the 1960s, however, the area hit an economic downturn, as factories shut down or moved away, leaving behind unemployment and contaminated land. “White flight” opened the door to Latino families and workers who had been excluded for decades.</p> <p>The arts infrastructure of Southeast Los Angeles County may appear sparse compared to the museums, schools, and studios just a few miles north in the city of LA, but there is no lack of creative and cultural expression amongst residents.

and &#8220;ancient art, not ancient wages.&#8221; Visitors to the museum&#8217;s Open House, an event celebrating the revamped Asian and Islamic art galleries, streamed in through different entrances in an attempt to circumvent the protestors.</p> <p>Employees at the Brooklyn Museum officially <a href="https://hyperallergic.com/648709/brooklyn-museum-workers-move-to-unionize/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">unionized</a> in August 2021 and began contract negotiations with museum leadership in January of this year. While the two parties have reached tentative agreements on some<strong> </strong>non-economic issues, they have yet to come to terms on healthcare and wages.</p> <p>The day before their protest, the union <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CjA_9ruMclI/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y%3D" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">announced</a> that they had filed an Unfair Labor Practices charge against the museum with the National Board of Labor Relations, which oversaw their 2021 election into United Auto Workers (UAW) Local 2110.

According to UAW, the museum is currently offering a 3% increase, a 1.5% increase in 2023 and 2024, and a one-time adjustment that would be applicable to select workers. </p> <p>A museum spokesperson told Hyperallergic that although they cannot comment on the specifics of the ongoing negotiations, the museum has proposed a 9% average wage increase. UAW emphasized that this 9% figure is an average and would leave more than half of the union&#8217;s workers with only a 3% raise. This increase would fall far below the sky-high <a href="https://www.bls.gov/news.release/cpi.nr0.htm" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">inflation rate</a> — calculated at 8.3% from August 2021 to August 2022.</p> <p>&#8220;We remain committed to partnering with our staff to achieve an agreement that advances our commitments to wage equity,&#8221; a Brooklyn Museum spokesperson said in a statement. &#8220;The museum recently approved a FY2023 operating budget that dedicates nearly $4M in new investments in wage and benefit improvements for all employees,&#8221;

she said. &#8220;Which is something that we&#8217;re trying to remediate.&#8221;</p> <p>Owen O&#8217;Brien, an individual giving manager in the museum&#8217;s Development department, told Hyperallergic that high employee turnover, coupled with what he sees as underpayment, led him to join the union and take a position on its bargaining committee. O&#8217;Brien said that pay is especially poor for part-time workers.</p> <p>Emma Dematteo, a visitors service associate, is one of those part-time employees. She&#8217;s been at the museum since 2018 when she was hired as a temporary worker, and excluding a brief stint at the Morgan Library, Dematteo has worked at the Brooklyn Museum &#8220;almost [her] entire adult life,&#8221; since she was 21.</p> <p>&#8220;I feel like I&#8217;ve grown up here,&#8221; Dematteo said. &#8220;It&#8217;s the people here. I always felt really supported and nourished.&#8221; Now, Dematteo only works at the museum on occasion and has taken up a job as a nanny. &#8220;It pays the bills,&#8221; Dematteo said, adding that she is paid $17 an hour at the Brooklyn Museum. The <a href="https://livingwage.mit.edu/counties/36061" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">living hourly wage</a> in New York City, as calculated by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is $25.42. </p> <p>&#8220;Organizing comes from a deep care and passion for museum work and this institution in particular,&#8221; St. George said, adding that many workers are drawn to the Brooklyn Museum for its espoused social justice mission. &#8220;This is just about holding the museum accountable to its lip-service to social justice.&#8221; </p> <p>As workers lined the museum&#8217;s entrance, another group of union members stood next to Eastern Parkway near an NYPD police car stationed outside the protest,<strong> </strong>waving signs at cars passing by on the busy street.

According to UAW, the museum is currently offering a 3% increase, a 1.5% increase in 2023 and 2024, and a one-time adjustment that would be applicable to select workers. </p> <p>A museum spokesperson told Hyperallergic that although they cannot comment on the specifics of the ongoing negotiations, the museum has proposed a 9% average wage increase. UAW emphasized that this 9% figure is an average and would leave more than half of the union&#8217;s workers with only a 3% raise. This increase would fall far below the sky-high <a href="https://www.bls.gov/news.release/cpi.nr0.htm" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">inflation rate</a> — calculated at 8.3% from August 2021 to August 2022.</p> <p>&#8220;We remain committed to partnering with our staff to achieve an agreement that advances our commitments to wage equity,&#8221;

I always felt really supported and nourished.&#8221; Now, Dematteo only works at the museum on occasion and has taken up a job as a nanny. &#8220;It pays the bills,&#8221; Dematteo said, adding that she is paid $17 an hour at the Brooklyn Museum. The <a href="https://livingwage.mit.edu/counties/36061" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">living hourly wage</a> in New York City, as calculated by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is $25.42. </p> <p>&#8220;Organizing comes from a deep care and passion for museum work and this institution in particular,&#8221; St. George said, adding that many workers are drawn to the Brooklyn Museum for its espoused social justice mission. &#8220;This is just about holding the museum accountable to its lip-service to social justice.&#8221; </p> <p>As workers lined the museum&#8217;s entrance, another group of union members stood next to Eastern Parkway near an NYPD police car stationed outside the protest,<strong> </strong>waving signs at cars passing by on the busy street. Their placards read &#8220;Art workers won&#8217;t kiss ass&#8221; and &#8220;You can&#8217;t eat prestige.&#8221;</p> <p>Drivers honked in response and pedestrians stopped to chat with the rallying workers.</p> <p>&#8220;We do this because we love and care about the museum,&#8221; St. George said. &#8220;We care about our work here and now, but also what future people coming to the museum will encounter.&#8221; </p> MoMA’s Cruel Offer to Unionized Workers During the Pandemic https://hyperallergic.com/765068/momas-cruel-offer-to-unionized-workers-during-the-pandemic/ Hyperallergic urn:uuid:92fbdffa-55d2-3db7-046c-63a999f6ce9a Thu, 29 Sep 2022 22:47:06 +0200 <figure><img width="720" height="471" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?fit=720%2C471&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="" loading="lazy" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?w=2293&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2293w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=720%2C471&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=1200%2C785&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=768%2C502&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=1536%2C1005&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=2048%2C1340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=1568%2C1026&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=400%2C262&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=706%2C462&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w" sizes="(max-width: 34.9rem) calc(100vw - 2rem), (max-width: 53rem) calc(8 * (100vw / 12)), (min-width: 53rem) calc(6 * (100vw / 12)), 100vw" /></figure>The museum offered some workers the option to forgo pay raises in exchange for keeping their jobs, union members told Hyperallergic. <figure><img width="720" height="471" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?fit=720%2C471&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="" loading="lazy" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?w=2293&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2293w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=720%2C471&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=1200%2C785&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=768%2C502&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=1536%2C1005&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=2048%2C1340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=1568%2C1026&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=400%2C262&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/MoMA-All-Local-30.jpg?resize=706%2C462&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w" sizes="(max-width: 34.9rem) calc(100vw - 2rem), (max-width: 53rem) calc(8 * (100vw / 12)), (min-width: 53rem) calc(6 * (100vw / 12)), 100vw" /></figure> <p>In spring of 2020, when COVID-19 overwhelmed New York and shuttered its art museums and galleries, leadership at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)<strong> </strong>presented some of its unionized workers with an offer they couldn&#8217;t refuse: Give up salary raises in the next two years and, in return, you will not be laid off or terminated.</p> <p>Fearful of losing their jobs while seeing peers at other museums getting let go in the thousands, the workers of at least one of MoMA&#8217;s four labor unions, Local 30 of the International Union of Operating Engineers, agreed. </p> <p>Local 30 represents about 60 art handlers, engineers, preparators, carpenters, and maintenance workers at MoMA. A month and a half into negotiating a new contract with the museum (their contract expired in early August), the workers are now saying that leadership isn&#8217;t returning the favor, offering them scant salary raises that don&#8217;t match what they had to give up or<strong> </strong>reflect<strong> </strong>the spike in inflation and living costs in the city.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="603" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-1200x927.jpg?resize=780%2C603&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765219" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?resize=1200%2C927&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?resize=720%2C556&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?resize=768%2C593&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?resize=1536%2C1187&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?resize=2048%2C1583&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?resize=1568%2C1212&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?resize=400%2C309&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?resize=706%2C546&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Change-is-Modern-Change-Requires-Labor-MoMA-Local-30-Carpenters-scaled.jpg?w=2340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2340w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>A protest poster provided by the Local 30 union reads: &#8220;Change is Modern.

We are now simply asking for respectful compensation for the financial, physical, and emotional sacrifices we have made for MoMA.&#8221; </p> <p>To deliver this message, the union parked a protest truck in front of MoMA yesterday, September 28, clad with digital screens that displayed informational slides about the museum&#8217;s high earnings and ample endowment (around $1 billion as of June 2021, according to public filings) together with messages like &#8220;It&#8217;s time to support workers who supported the museum&#8221;

Now, their goal is to at least recoup those lost raises, but they say they’ve been facing an unsympathetic management. The union&#8217;s opening proposal was a 12% salary increase for every worker in the first year, while the museum&#8217;s proposal stands at around 3%, according to Robert Wilson, a representative of Local 30. </p> <p>&#8220;We didn&#8217;t expect to get 12% but that was our starting point because if we agree to 6.25% in the first year, that would be taking zero this year as it only gets us to where we should have already been.&#8221; </p> <p>Wilson added that the museum &#8220;took advantage&#8221; of the pandemic and misled the workers by making them believe that their only choice was giving up their salary increases or potentially losing their jobs. </p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="780" height="603" src="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-1200x927.jpg?resize=780%2C603&#038;quality=100&#038;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-765222" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?resize=1200%2C927&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1200w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?resize=720%2C556&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 720w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?resize=768%2C593&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 768w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?resize=1536%2C1187&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1536w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?resize=2048%2C1583&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2048w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?resize=1568%2C1212&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 1568w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?resize=400%2C309&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 400w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?resize=706%2C546&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 706w, https://i0.wp.com/hyperallergic-newspack.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2022/09/Safe-in-a-climate-controlled-building-Even-on-a-stormy-night-Engineers-9_15_22-scaled.jpg?w=2340&amp;quality=100&amp;ssl=1 2340w" sizes="(max-width: 780px) 100vw, 780px" data-recalc-dims="1" /><figcaption>MoMA workers next to &nbsp;Vincent van Gogh&#8217;s masterpiece &#8220;The Starry Night&#8221; (1889)<br /><a href="https://artsandculture.google.com/asset/the-starry-night/bgEuwDxel93-Pg?utm_source=google&amp;utm_medium=kp&amp;hl=en&amp;avm=2"></a></figcaption></figure> <p>&#8220;Most of our members worked the museum during the lockdown because they were needed for a large renovation and for later preparing for the museum to reopen, so the argument that the museum would&#8217;ve had to lay them off was disingenuous,&#8221; he said.</p> <p>Abrams confirmed that Local 30 engineers were on site throughout the entire lockdown of 2020 to &#8220;ensure the safety and security of MoMA’s priceless collection.&#8221; </p> <p>Mark Warhall, an art handler who has also worked at the museum for more than 18 years, said: “I love my job but am finding it increasingly challenging to live in NYC given the two year’s worth of raises we sacrificed at the beginning of the pandemic, as well as inflationary pressures for rent, food, etc.&#8221; </p> <p>He continued, &#8220;It’s very discouraging when you pour every effort into a job that requires a high amount of skill, experience, physical labor, and patience to hear the cost of living increases being offered at this point in the Local 30 negotiations with MoMA.”</p> <p>Negotiations between the museum and the union will resume in about a week. In the meantime, the workers are using protest and outreach to the media to put pressure on management to move closer to their demands. &#8220;MoMA thrives off the labor of every one of us, it is time for our negotiations to reflect our commitment to making MoMA an internationally renowned destination for art,&#8221; Abrams said. </p> <p>Wilson concluded: &#8220;These workers have skill sets that take years to develop; these are the people that handle the most valuable assets that MoMA has, in their most vulnerable forms.

Polarities of the organic and synthetic, comfort and danger, and preservation and destruction emerge from his sculptures, which are comprised of playful, stylized interpretations of natural life pressed under sheets of acrylic.</p> <p>On view as part of his solo show <em>Tread Softly</em>, Hamlyn&#8217;s most recent pieces include yellow daffodils, nightshades, and a pink flowering cactus that, although alluring for their blossoms, are extremely harmful if touched or ingested in real life. This sinister undertone pervades the body of work, which broadly addresses the precarious boundary between life and death. All of Hamlyn&#8217;s squished fabric specimens, for example, are depicted at their prime while being suffocated under a polyurethane coating and plastic panel. The artist shares:</p> <blockquote><p>When I think about the past time of ‘pressing flowers,&#8217; I think about how when we crush a flower to preserve its beauty, we essentially destroy it to preserve it. These works are at once a celebration and a critique. The human relationship to flowers is a complex one in the way they symbolise love and loss simultaneously. For example, we give dying flowers to each other both in celebration and in grief.</p></blockquote> <p>If you&#8217;re in Norwich, you can see <em>Tread Softly</em> through October 8 at <a href="https://mooseyart.co.uk" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Moosey Art</a>.
