Memory” by Anish Kapoor, at the Deutsche Guggenheim (2009)

Natasha Garnett has written “Anish in Paris”, in the WSJ Magazine section of The Wall Street Journal, an excellent article and interview with the renowned, ambitious and charming Indian-born, British artist Anish Kapoor, looking at his work, his thoughts about art and fame, and his upcoming monumental work, Leviathan“, for Monumenta in Paris:  An enormous inflatable “balloon”, a major departure for the artist, who has worked almost exclusively with solid, predominantly metal, constructions, that will fill the vast, light-filled nef of the Grand Palais in Paris from 11 May- 23 June 2011.

Jennifer Schuessler has written an interesting little article entitled “David Foster Wallace, Self-Help Reader” in the Arts section of The New York Times, looking at David Foster Wallace and offering up a number of fascinating, and perhaps even useful, links to various “support” materials for those interested in/struggling with/obsessed with Wallace’s oeuvre.

Especially wonderful are the David Foster Wallace archives at the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas at Austin, below.

Ah, the infinite jest of it all…

Charles McGrath has written a wonderful and fascinating article entitled “Piecing Together a Posthumous Novel From David Foster Wallace” in the Books section of The New York Times looking at the new, posthumous novel “The Pale King” by David Foster Wallace, author of Infinite Jest (2006), and the colossal task of Michael Pietsch, executive vice president and publisher at Little Brown, who took two years to assemble Wallace’s partial manuscript, handwritten journals, notebooks, notes and annotations into what, with only a bit of reasonable hesitation, may be called Wallace’s masterpiece.

 Apphia Michael has written a short, crisp article entitled, rather directly, “Art of Attraction photography exhibition, New York” in the always-coveted Wallpaper* Magazine looking at the current exhibition of photography at the recently opened Float Gallery in New York City (‘Art of Attraction’ is running at Float Gallery until 3 April 2011, F.L.O.A.T. Gallery, 300 West 22nd Street, NY, NY 10011).  As Michael writes, the exhibition includes  “a mix of photographs that capture the themes of sexual desire and attraction, as well as…other photographic works that look to document our global obsession with the unforgiving Western ideal of physical beauty.”  Hmmm.  Mirror, mirror on the wall…

Very interesting slideshow, here.
