Scibetta-3

    For some reason I find that one of the most effective ways to make a very busy week feel less busy is to incorporate into it a few extra things I really want to do, to offset the various things to which I’m variably obligated. Yes, this is tantamount to making myself busier [READ ►]

Voisine and Stender, crossed.

  I was out of town for a little while last month, and one of the very first things I did upon returning a couple weeks ago—rather than engaging in the more or less logical act of unpacking my bags—was spend an afternoon doing studio visits with Oriane Stender and Don Voisine in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Jayoung Yoon - Sensing Thought 03

Keith Schweitzer of ART(inter) in conversation with New York-based artist Jayoung Yoon.   KS: There’s a lovely connective thread along all of your work—the sculpture, performance, and film. I get a definite sense of ritual and meditation. The work is haunting, particularly the sculpture, as mysterious and ancient artifacts of a culture unknown to me. [READ ►]

  I biked over to Anne Russinof’s studio a few days ago to bring her a painting and see what she’d been working on of late. It turns out she’s been working on a lot of new pieces at once, exploring a few new forms of compositional parametrics, and just generally infusing the world—per her [READ ►]

Bo-2

  Tom Butter and I recently took a little post-pedagogical field trip from Parsons to Tribeca to visit Bo Berkman’s studio. It so happened that the building I was teaching in that day—just as I was wrapping up my class, and therefore just as I was getting ready to meet Tom—was being evacuated for some [READ ►]

  On the fourth floor of a fortunately yet-industrial, local-beacon-like outcropping on the corner of 2nd Avenue and 46th Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, is the NARS Foundation, an arts organization and residency program. During my recent round of studio visits there as a guest critic, I met with Gunilla Daga, from Sweden; Julie Trudel, [READ ►]
