VISUAL TREATS presents ' ART OUTSIDE WALLS ' / CHRISTO (and Jeanne-Claude) Day 2

Image
Peeps,
Any discussion of artists who exhibit outside the confines of gallery walls, or are bound by the conventions of wooden frame, material limitations, or the whims of dealer or market, would be incomplete without the inclusion of Christo (and Jeanne-Claude), the celebrated team responsible for large-scale installations running through mountains and fields into the sea, or wrapping public spaces into objects of extraordinary beauty, clearly intended for all to enjoy, as well as to gently challenge the public's definition of art.
Christo and Jeanne-Claude were a married couple (until Jeanne-Claudes' death in 2009) who created environmental works of art, such as the wrapping the Reichstag in Berlin, and the Pont-Neuf bridge in Paris, 'Running Fence' in California, and 'The Gates' in New York City's Central Park. Art dealer Nancy Doyle writes that, 'the pair creates environmental works that span great distances in populated landscapes, both rural and urba…

Visual Treats presents ' ART OUTSIDE WALLS ' / Day 1 -- JENNY HOLZER

Image
Peeps,

Frequently no one leaves entirely satisfied.  Perhaps this the result of simply not knowing.  If your family is similar to mine, after Thanksgiving gluttony and cleanup, the debate invariably starts:  do we pursue high culture (and art) at the museum, or should we simply indulge our more base desires, and head for the mall and streets to indulge in window-gazing, bargain-shopping, and people watching.  Another set of cuff-links or wool slacks nabbed at holiday markdowns is always fun, yet never entirely satisfying when I scan the weekend papers and internally chastise myself for having ignored the wide selection of wonderful art-exhibitions at The National Gallery of Art, The Sackler Gallery, and The Hirshhorn Museum.  Sometimes in the contest of wills between various factions of the family, where young adults need to expend energy (and reassert their independence, why?), and the more culturally inclined seek to expose the uninitiated to the finer things of life, one group or th…

Peeps,
Lately, we've heard a great deal about the alleged activities of a certain assistant-coach at Penn State University.  As more details emerge, it becomes shockingly clear that the sexual abuse of minors occurred over a prolonged period, and a systematic cover-up of these violations by other coaches, the athletics department, and school administrators created an environment where the perpetrator was able to exploit other victims without any fear of being fired, or reported to the police.  Numerous individuals have stepped forward to recount their experiences, as they attempt to deal with the physical, emotional, and psychological scars of the incident(s).  Others have not been able to take this step towards healing, and instead live in fear of repercussion, or remain silent out of a sense of shame, or feelings of guilt.  Professionals in the mental health service(s) are well acquainted with persons who suffer from flashbacks, isolation, depression, and PTSD; self-injury and se…

CEASE AND DESIST / Day 1 - BAR STAR??

Image
Peeps,


There was a time when before meeting friends for dinner, or diving into a seriously deep drink before really hitting the streets meant slipping into a nicely filled place with some standing room at the bar, a pro pouring drinks, and the right grooves to get you into the mood.  Sure, you wanted a nice grown-up crowd around you, helped if there were attractive, but friendly was fine.  Good looking bartender was great, cute was OK, yet what counted was feeling that your needs were somehow understood (without much talking), and that no judgement/no attitude/no watering down of top-shelf selections was permitted.  Barry White crooning (and I am not dating myself here, cause the sh*t still sounds fresh), ambient grooves of the Theivery Corporation, or acid jazz; all this contributed to setting the mood, as one chatted/waited/watched/planned/drank/fantasized/pondered the state of affairs of everything that had come before, and had brought oneself to this point in time.  Sounds simply e…
