Pop Rides the News Cycle – Andy Warhol as Precursor to Twitter & Facebook

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 22 October 2011

Holland Cotter has written a superb and insightful article entitled “Pop Rides the News Cycle” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times, looking at the work, and person, of Andy Warhol, his gimlet-eyed perceptions of the integration of news, commerce and art, and two exhibitions currently on view in the U.S. capitol, “Warhol: Headlines” at the National Gallery of Art and (through 2 January 2012) “Andy Warhol: Shadows,” (through 15 January 2012) at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.  Astounding.  Sharp, concise, deep, and clear.  A must-read, whether you can get to D.C. to view the shows, or not.

Excellent, but brief, slideshow, here.

The Artist as Obstreperous Rebel & Sardonic Social Commentator – “German Expressionism: The Graphic Impulse” at MoMA

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 26 March 2011

Erich Heckel’s “Franzi Reclining”, 1910.  Part of MoMA’s extraordinary collection of German Expressionism prints.

Roberta Smith has written a wonderful, lively and informative article entitled “Bleak Visions From Early-20th-Century Rebels” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the highly colorful and intensely graphic exhibition “German Expressionism: The Graphic Impulse”  at the Museum of Moder Art (open to the public Sunday 27 March – 11 July, 2011, (212) 708-9400, moma.org).  Smith describes the show as, among other things, “infused with an urgent, crackling energy, by turns joyful, satiric, grim and tragic”, easily motivation enough for one to see it. 

However, for those of us who, for some reason, won’t be in New York between tomorrow and 11 July, MoMA has announced that as of Sunday all 3,380 German Expressionist works on paper in its collection will become available for online viewing at moma.org/germanexpressionism.  Amazing, and excellent.

In the meantime, great slideshow, here.
