On Math Bass: Got a Light?
On Math Bass: Got a Light?
by William J. Simmons for Artillery Mag

A strained, stretched, widening, loosened metaphor, one that gives lights and receives them, might be the best way to describe Math Bass’ work. Yet metaphor is an easy interpretational mode that relies too heavily on iconography. Morever, description logo-centrically implies that all that is felt can be written or painted, that you actually can describe what bottoming is like to someone who has yet to do it. A simile might be better. In this moment, it seems more capacious. Bass’ work is like a ride on the Long Island Rail Road, winding through a certain kind of world, in which crushed skulls and young love happen simultaneously and often unnoticed, where aspiration and reality meet, where the Piano Man’s jar is filled up with cock-like bread, where hearts are broken and lose their three-dimensionality, only to unflatten at the sight of beautiful arms at work on a floor.

Shot in 1967, Lyon’s photographs offer a more nuanced and human perspective of the destruction of the old lower Manhattan, one that is often paved over by history books.

Exhibition review by Cole Sweetwood for Artillery Magazine

It’s not that difficult to be contemporary. Be it through art, or writing, or simply conversation, we’re almost always discussing what’s right in front of us. It’s another thing all together to create something which takes on an entirely new meaning decades after fabrication. This is the power of Peter Alexander’s exhibition “Light in Place,” on view now at the Cirrus Gallery.

Lita Albuquerque's "Red Earth" at the Huntington Gardens
through November 2, 2020

A new site-specific artwork by Lita Albuquerque, “Red Earth,” greets visitors at The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens as garden areas reopen after a closure of more than three months as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally scheduled to go on view in March, the temporary installation centers around a boulder capped with bright red pigment placed among towering bamboo in a grove of the Japanese Garden. It is exclusive to this particular time and place and is “a stand-in for what I am hoping the visitor to feel, a sense of calm in the midst of chaos,” Albuquerque said. “Red Earth,” which closes Nov. 2, was commissioned as a part of The Huntington’s Centennial Celebration.

an interview by Lauri Firstenberg for Compound LB

Glenn Kaino transforms conventional materials and forms through a process of working that mobilizes the languages, logics and economies of other creative disciplines as raw elements in artistic production. Conceiving his practice as “conceptual kit bashing”—Kaino synthesizes objects, performances and site specific encounters by reconfiguring conditions of cultural spheres, where disparate ideas and materials are forced to make contact.
