Canadian Melancholy...

...is how I thought of the chubbier part of the Biennale de Montreal that I saw in mid-May. (The show is suburbanized, and I'm on foot here.) It was a long weekend, being Victoria Day on Monday. Sigh. The city is deserted. It would look rather like Surrealist Paris if all those lovely statues in the square with their beaux arts nymphs and goddesses hadn't been spoiled by being topped by a stuffy looking man in a suit. It's like putting a turd on an ice cream Sunday. At least the seagulls are shitting on the King's head...

What a sad and disgusting story.
But quiet some food for thought.
Very curious about opinions here!

Feedback in Spain

The Feedback show at(Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial | Documento legal La Universidad Laboral s/n - 33394 Gijón [Asturias] - España) is one of the more interesting curatorial efforts at integrating New Media art into the art discourse. What I really like is that it also uses the advances in digital media to highlight established artists such as Sol LeWitt or Robert Rauschenberg. Christiane Paul wrote a terrific essay for the catalog. I've reprinted it below. -gh

Together in Death, with Curry


I arrive at the Zwirner Gallery’s double show of Rirkrit Tiravanija and Gordon Matta-Clark, rolling my bicycle up to the front of the kitchen and locking it before the window-like openings. I enter the dumpster with the maze built inside it. With its back panel open, the dumpster is the major opening of the double installation to the street.
