This Is America: Scott Listfield Explores the Empty Terrain @ Thinkspace Projects
We don't know the exact moment that Scott Listfield began working on his newest exhibition, This Is America, opening with Thinkspace Projects on May 30, 2020. To look at a damaged, reimagined, empty American landscape during a time when a pandemic has ravaged this nation from sea to sea, urban to rural, seems almost like an intended backdrop for these works. Listfield's lonely astronaut has long looked at our extinction, whether through climate change or other disasterous decisions we may make. And yet with Covid as our current reality, no matter where you live across the globe or in America itself, these scenes feel as if they are closer to our lives than ever.

Julie Curtiss x Case Studyo
"What I like about hair in painting is the pattern and repetitiveness, which is hypnotic and attractive," Julie Curtiss told us last year in a feature in our print edition. I particularly love Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’ touch and I have always been fascinated with the way he paints hair, skin and fabrics. It’s that same kind of rendering, of softness, or sensuality, that I would like to emulate in my depiction of hair."

Vivian Maier's Works in Color
Mostly known for her black and white photography, Vivian Maier is an icon in American street photography. A genre mainly dominated by photographers such as Robert Frank, Joel Meyerowitz and Lee Friedlander. Maier’s observant eye as an unknown outsider and as a woman makes her work a significant addition to the canon of photography. This exhibition at Foam focuses on a lesser-known aspect of her work: over 60 colour photographs from the period between 1956 – 1986.

Art In Uncertain Times: Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope Reports from Tel Aviv
"When you initially asked, I felt that I was a bit new to the whole Corona reality and my understanding of the experience happened with time," Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope wrote from his home in Tel Aviv in his report for our Art In Uncertain Times series. "I’m currently just past the two-month mark of staying home. Due to health issues, I started my quarantine a little earlier than others in Israel, and will most likely stay in a while after. I took to this lifestyle very easily, as being an artist I’m used a somewhat semi-solitary day-to-day." We reached out to our friend back in March, but as someone very cautious about expressing feelings, he preferred to ponder…

Leigh Garcia: A Commitment to Social Activism Through Art at Kent State
For those who don’t consider Ohio a trendsetter, keep in mind that it’s known as both the Swing and Bellwether State. So while we’re seeking direction, we look beyond the Coasts and consider Kent State. It boasts courses in Italy, Switzerland and India, while bearing a very midwestern and eastern presence; a good place to gauge the current mood of college and learning. Naturally, we’re interested in art programs, so feel lucky to have the chance to share our conversation with a young teacher who is herself a working artist. As J. Leigh Garcia, a biracial Latina, looks out for her students and her commitment to portray undocumented immigration, she considers how to incorporate her own need to make art.…

Video: Amy Nathan on
We are excited today to share our newest collaboration video with If You Were Here Now, a workshop of painting and communicating with objects as opposed to formal letters with Berkeley, California-based Amy Nathan. Nathan says of her work, "My painted, faceted sculptures begin with the act of applying pressure to images and language, cracking open their systems, making them tactile, and distending them into an expanded space. Made of adaptable modular forms, my sculptures employ tautness and slack, flexibility and rigidity, counterweight, draping and propping up—simple machines with palpable physical properties. I excavate, draw and trace forms, cluster them into color palettes and patterns, shuffle and guide them towards an internal logic. Putting ideas and materials through the wringer, taking-apart-and-bringing-back-together…

Paul Insect Places Rainbow Benches Around Empty Central London
"London has never looked so good as it does now," Paul Insect tells us of the current state of one of the most densely populated cities in Europe. "The streets are clean and the views are unbroken by people... a perfect time to be exploring your city where ever you are, of course with the correct social distancing.”

Getting Close to Ren Hang
Ren Hang, who we sadly lost in 2017, didn't have a lot to say about himself. In the fine art environment, where emphasizing one’s own importance (or having representation to do so, while you maintain the air of expensive mystery) is the norm, this resistance to pretense could be considered a form of madness. But this didn't stopped the thirty-year-old photographer, who gained international recognition by aiming his camera up the skirt of Chinese culture, and deeper, into its heart. This video by The Frei Group from 2013 offers a peek into the world of the photographer just as word of his talent began to echo across the globe.
