KEN GONZALES-DAY'S WORK ON PUBLIC DISPLAY AT THE WENDE MUSEUM

Part of the group show Transformations: Living Room -> Flea Market -> Museum -> Art

"Ken Gonzales-Day’s large-scale digital print Monumental Vision: Labor/Lenin(2020) is a pigment print on vinyl itself at a monumental scale, which considers the fate of discarded sculptural testaments to Soviet rule in the implicit context of toppled Confederate monuments in the U.S. and indeed, the altars to violent colonialism that pollute so much of the world."

INTERVIEW COVERS THE SPAN OF HIS CAREER, INCLUDING HIS CURRENT SHOW AT LUIS DE JESUS LOS ANGELES

"I have to be knowledgeable about what came before me, but also use all the tools that are available today. So, I figured out how to domesticate technology. Instead of it feeling cold and distant, I blended it with organic painting texture, and drawings, and with motion capture I created something that, in my opinion, is very human. You feel like you want to touch it, and that’s a feeling that normally doesn’t happen with digital media."

"In recent years, and particularly since the beginning of the Black Lives Matter movement, many of his paintings have focused on issues of systemic racism, including violence against African Americans, slavery and mass incarceration. He has said that he always “believed in the idea of bearing witness to the times in which you live.”

'MIRANDO EL MUDNO' REVIEWED FOR HYPERALLERGIC

"The exquisite amount of tenderness he takes, with each tendril of her hair, the exact purse of her lips, even the wisps of her lower eyelashes, is a reminder that paying attention to others is sometimes the most radical act of all."

LIA HALLORAN MENTIONED IN EDWARD GOLDMAN'S ART MATTERS
LIA HALLORAN MENTIONED IN EDWARD GOLDMAN'S ART MATTERS

"Lia Halloran, in her sprawling studio in Eagle Rock, showed me her latest deep blue cyanotypes. She creates these works on paper by painting on semi-transparent film, then placing this film on top of paper coated with light-sensitive emulsion—the film and paper are then exposed to direct sunlight. These magical artworks make you feel that you are travelling through the universe."

EVITA TEZENO: 'BETTER DAYS' FEATURED ON CULTURE TYPE

"Viewing Tezeno’s lively colored work replicates a leisurely drive through a small Black town, encountering its most fascinating figures, passing by shotgun houses and acres of green landscape or leafing through an old family photo album and seeing mixed-media collage versions of beloved relatives on page after page."

Richard May for Artillery Magazine

"As the planet enters the beginning of a post-pandemic, post-Trump administration era, it was wonderful to be baptized in optimism from Evita Tezeno’s exhibition, “Better Days” at the Luis De Jesus Los Angeles gallery. One sweeping taste of these works results in a single message: Tezeno’s unique voice reflects a masterful synthesis of several groundbreaking aesthetic approaches that pay tribute to Black culture ..."

"There can be moments of discovery or ahas down the road,” Reames says. “All the artwork that I live with, I typically will discover new things in it down the line, and that’s a really important experience for me — the kind of experience I want other people to have with it.”

JIM ADAMS: ETERNAL WITNESS REVIEWED FOR CANADIAN ART
JIM ADAMS: ETERNAL WITNESS REVIEWED FOR CANADIAN ART
"A Sense Of Scale" by jill moniz

Adams focuses his visual language through the intersectional lens of the complexities, pleasures and perils of being a Black man in this world, now and otherwise. For example, Lost Trophy (Apollo) (2012) depicts the Greek god of truth, creativity and healing as a young Black athlete. Adams uses his own experiences as well as African and mythological allegories and parables—all made visual through rich colours, sacred geometries, real and metaphorical portals, land/space-scapes and portraits. Together, they suggest that the lineage of Black people and our creative vitality is as nimble as ever.

'WE ALL HAVE TO CREATE OUR OWN UNIVERSE.'
'WE ALL HAVE TO CREATE OUR OWN UNIVERSE.'
Producer and artist Zackary Drucker on Telling Nuanced Tran Stories

The common thread that runs through the work of multimedia artist and producer Zackary Drucker is a commitment to telling stories of trans resilience, whether that’s through her photography, her work as a producer on the award-winning series Transparent, or as co-director of the new HBO docuseries The Lady and the Dale. “I never want to do the same thing twice. I am led by curiosity, by anything that I don’t understand,” Drucker says.

Drawn entirely from the Mead’s collection, the group exhibition Founding Narratives raises questions about representation and the absence of representation in national narratives and in the establishment of a national art, about the significance of “firsts,” and about the interpretative frameworks that museums offer about artists and artworks.
