Victoria Fu in Art Forum

posted by Emerson Dorsch on 10 October 2014 at 12:00 AM | Link

In the latest issue of Art Forum Tony Pipolo writes about the New York Film Festival's "Projections" lineup of video works, including Victoria Fu.

"...Victoria Fu’s Lorem ipsum 1 (2013) constructs a digital portrait both more literal and skewed, cleverly composed of multiple, simultaneous, even contradictory angles. How this reflects its title—a phrase derived from an ancient text of Cicero’s and now used to identify a “filler text” in graphic design—is unclear to me. As we watch a woman walking into and through her house and gazing out of her window (Maya Deren’s /i>Meshes of the Afternoon [1943] may come to mind), an uneasy tension invests the flow of fragmentary images as they flirt with and recoil from a fully integrated, intact portrait: We never quite see the woman’s entire face in a sustained composition—as if, like her work, the artist refuses reduction to a single perspective."

Brookhart Jonquil: The New Romantics @ Eyebeam

posted by Emerson Dorsch on 4 April 2014 at 2:41 PM | Link

The work of Brookhart Jonquil has been included in the exhibition The New Romantics at Eyebeam (New York, NY), 4/17/14 - 5/10/14.

"The New Romantics is an exhibition exploring the ways in which contemporary artists using digital media engage the body, representations of nature, poetic irony, and expressions of individuality as originally expressed in 19th Century Romanticism. By drawing equivalences between then and now, this exhibition identifies a critical precedent for artists today that are responding to their ever changing technological environment. Just as the Romantics responded to the industrial revolution, this group of artists are similarly responding to the current information revolution."

Brandon Opalka: Some Like it Hot @ History Miami

posted by Emerson Dorsch on 4 April 2014 at 2:33 PM | Link

History Miami, Miami, FL
February 21, 2014 - May 31, 2014
Curator: Brandon Opalka
Some Like It Hot recognizes Miami’s flourishing art scene, and emphasizes the “hot” phenomenon of art in the streets, a recent development that has redefined the local art community. Continually inspired by Miami’s climate, sandy beaches, nightlife, history, and distinct blend of Latin American, Caribbean, and American cultures, Miami-based artists often transform their experiences of the city’s complex and offbeat identity into individualized visual languages. Their often site-specific, public pieces have long acted as a local tourist attraction, and have increased their prominence while simultaneously stimulating the gentrification of the communities in which they create. This exhibition highlights examples of their work, which showcase a variety of mediums and genres found within the eclectic, constantly evolving mural art tradition. The pieces reflect a wide range of art practices, including studio art, visual design, and graffiti, and represent an indigenous expression of public art.
