View Inside: Peter Scibetta

by on August 27th 2016


    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 ►]

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 ►]

All photographs by Paul D'Agostino.

  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 ►]

View Inside: Brett Wallace

by on February 27th 2016


  A couple days ago I visited Brett Wallace in his East Williamsburg studio situated in a recently converted minor factory of sorts down the block from ex-3rd Ward. The door to Brett’s chunk of space within this structure is the last on the right down a long hallway of one studio door after another, [READ ►]

  I recently had the pleasure of visiting Rico Gatson’s Bushwick studio as he prepares works for his forthcoming solo show at Samsøn Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts. It will open this June. While looking and at and making installation-related associations among the artist’s boldly marked, abundantly bright, curiously meta-dimensional, and politically suggestive yet not overtly [READ ►]

View Inside: Lawrence Swan

by on January 6th 2016


  I recently visited Lawrence Swan’s studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to talk about and select pieces for Of Plectics, Swan’s forthcoming solo exhibition at Centotto Gallery, slated to open later this month. While discussing works and their conceptual and material geneses, we talked about halved squares, split mandalas, cursive pictograms, pictorial fluidities, implied symmetries, plans interrupted, [READ ►]

Kurt Steger Cart

During my most recent visit to Kurt Steger’s Bushwick studio I was accompanied by filmmaker Kai Nottapon Boonprakob. Steger’s studio is neatly arranged, a gallery of artworks and processes. Much of the works from his Urban Structures series of sculptures line one long wall, while a workshop table sits towards the rear of the studio surrounded by [READ ►]

View Inside: Lars Kremer

by on November 28th 2015


  Lars Kremer’s basement studio situated near Bushwick’s western border would be brimming all over with quirkily brilliant bodies of work even if its ceilings weren’t quite so low. When I last visited we chatted about obscure arachnids, symmetries and grids, controls and loosenings thereof, verbal pathways unto imagery, comically recraftable chairs, anthropo-ergonomic balloonery, and [READ ►]

Rebecca Morgan Self Portrait Wearing Hat

  Keith Schweitzer of ART(inter) in conversation with artist Rebecca Morgan.   KS: I’d like to talk at length about your ceramic works. I’ve watched them develop over the years, and they’ve become increasingly interesting. But first let’s discuss your drawings, as they seem to be the very essence of all of your work. Would you [READ ►]

View Inside: Elisa Jensen

by on September 27th 2015


  Elisa Jensen’s studio is in one of my favorite nether reaches of north Brooklyn, up where the grid of streets suturing outerlying threads of Greenpoint and Maspeth, Queens—and with a bit of extension, certain chunks of East Williamsburg—is still almost entirely industrial, and thus still heavily trafficked enough by hefty trucks snaking along to [READ ►]
