Current Viewing: DISown- Not For Everyone : Red Bull Studios ( New York) : Until April 6

Art as retail ? It's the tone of the times.Art as retail ? It's the tone of the times.

“DISown – Not For Everyone,” is an art exhibition posing as a retail store. Or maybe it’s the other way around. As Karl Lagerfeld for H&M is a diffusion line for fashion, DISown is a diffusion line for art. Set as an examination of taste and consumerism, DISown presents a new model for cultural critique. Presenting products from over 30 world-renowned artists including Ryan Trecartin, Jon Rafman, Bjarne Melgaard, Amalia Ulman, Telfar and Hood By Air (HBA), DISown will be featured in a retail installation by artist Lizzie Fitch. Art collective DIS and curator Agatha Wara present the month long exhibition, starting March 6th at Red Bull Studio New York.

Current Viewing: Sarah Lucas: Nud Nob : Gladstone Gallery ( New York)

Referencing the Greek gods of love and fertility, Lucas uses the titling of her work to infuse the sculptures with humor.Referencing the Greek gods of love and fertility, Lucas uses the titling of her work to infuse the sculptures with humor.

This show features a series of large-scale bronze and cast-concrete sculptures displayed variously on pedestals, and, at other times, installed directly on the floor. Characteristic of Lucas’s practice, the works simultaneously suggest multiple forms, as with the two monumental bronze works Florian and Kevin, which appear as both oversized vegetables and phallic-shaped sculptures. By confronting viewers with objects that are at once familiar and disorienting, Lucas proposes a reading of her work that seeks to subtly subvert socially constructed norms.

“By investigating the sense of spirituality that comes from the feelings of strangeness and affinity born from the physical relationship between objects and shapes, I hope that the viewer will get a foretaste of an alternate world that opens out from there.”

“For the last ten years or so I have been interested in how images could function as fugue. I was initially drawn to the idea as it referred to the medical condition of the "fugue state". A person in a "fugue state" is prone to long term amnesia usually combined with a far-flung travel.

In Black Forest, the Los Angeles-based artist Kelly Nipper (b. 1971) has created an environment equally informed by mythology and reality, by history and the present, by movement and objects. The project is inspired in part by the Black Forest—a wooded mountain range in Germany that has spawned legends featuring clairvoyants, magicians, sorcerers, and witches but is perhaps best known for clock making and intricately decorative wood carving.
