    Artists Protest Carl Andre Retrospective with Blood Outside of Dia:Chelsea

    Of the many things one might expect to see in the industrial chic gallery neighborhood of Chelsea on a Monday evening, chicken blood and guts splayed on the sidewalk is not one of them. But last night, in honor of the memory of the late artist Ana Mendieta and in protest of the Dia Art Foundation’s current retrospective of her husband, Carl Andre, artist Christen Clifford and the feminist No Wave Performance Task Force offered up deep red chicken blood and dark, chunky guts.

    In Conversation Ruben Torres llorca

    “My fundamental influences are coming from film and literature. The only reason I choose to be a visual artist is the independence that it carries. Of the art forms, it is the one least in need of an outside producer, and I have a pathological inclination for naughtiness,” says Torres Llorca. “Through the years I haven’t cared what type of classification my art is subject to, whether it’s considered art, post-art, literature, or a simple commentary. I do not care what type of resources it uses, the provenance, or how bastardized it could be if I can use it. The essence for me is to establish a public dialogue.”

  • Art in America – Ana Mendieta

    Carolee Schneeman, discussed her friendship with Mendieta
    “Most riveting, however, was her frank assertion that she is convinced that Andre murdered Mendieta. “She made me change her light bulbs. She was afraid of heights. She would never go near the window,” Schneeman confided, adding how eerie it is to her that Andre still lives in the same apartment from which Mendieta plunged to her death, and that his new wife allegedly makes window-based artworks.”

    Controversial Argentinian artist Leon Ferrari has died

    The controversial conceptual artist León Ferrari, whose work famously upset the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, now Pope Francis, due to its anti-clerical message, worked in many media, including wood, wire, concrete and collage. Born in Buenos Aires in 1920, Ferrari began his career as an engineer. He became one of Argentina’s best-known artists for work that often combined religious iconography with erotic and violent imagery that called attention to abuses of power, not least by the Catholic Church.

    Order, Chaos & the Space Between Phoenix Art Museum (Feb 6 – May 5)

    It will include more than 50 works from across Latin America, by artists including Gego, Félix Gonzalez-Torres, Matthias Goeritz, Jorge Macchi, Hélio Oiticica, and Doris Salcedo, as well as other many other innovative artists whose works figure prominently in today’s global contemporary art scene.

    Beginning in 1995, Diane and Bruce Halle, longtime Phoenix residents and supporters of Phoenix Art Museum, began collecting the art of Latin America as a way to both educate themselves in this area and to build greater awareness of this historically undervalued and overlooked region in the art world.
