Brazilian conceptual artist, Ilê Sartuzi, recently introduced a new artistic medium to the British Museum when he enacted “Sleight of Hand” with a circa 1645 silver coin from the museum’s collection. 

The San Candido Baths ruins are the remains of a peculiar building located near the town of S. Candido, in Südtirol, Italy. It is possible to admire them after taking a relatively short walk in the forest east of the town— a suggestive hike at the foot of the Dolomites— at the end of which one may glimpse the remains of a building hiding beyond the trees. 

Artist Nerys Levy feels that art is a “soft introduction” to climate change awareness, because viewer engagement presents the opportunity for dialogue. “People know very little about [the] polar regions and their real role affecting climate change,” she says.

Envisioning the ancient world as it truly was has always been archaeologists’ greatest dream and greatest struggle. After all, how do we conjure images of a world that is very often represented by little more than a few centimeters of soil? 

Mick Namarari Tjapaltjarri (b.1926-d.1998), Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri (b.1920-d.2008), Uta Uta Tjangala (b.1926-d.1990), John Mawurndjul (b.1951), Makinti Napanangka (b.1930-d.2011), Prince of Wales (b.1937-d.2002), and Gordon Bennett (b.1955-d.2014) may be unfamiliar names to even the most discerning New York art collector, but that is about to change. 

Whether the outsourcing of an analog lifestyle came swiftly, or took its sweet time, it’d be difficult to argue against our dependency on technology that we collectively face today. By way of the screen’s ever-present conveniences— paired with their data-driven subliminal messages— the critique of overexposure to blue light has also become somewhat mainstream. 

Conjuring Tenderness: Paintings from 1987, an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Hugh Steers (1962–1995), recently opened at New York’s Alexander Gray Associates. 

Despite a series of scandals that left the public unsure of its continuance, German mega-exhibition Documenta has just announced the new selection committee in charge of finding their next artistic director. Taking place every five years in Kassel, Germany, Documenta had an original committee for the 2027 show that resigned en masse after serious allegations of anti-semitism. 

Twenty years ago, Los Angeles-based high school painting teacher Jennifer Rochlin accepted a $10,000 grant to teach ceramics, despite one minor setback: she had never touched clay.
