  • The art world is a small world, and major art fairs are like mini-reunions throughout the year. It’s our time to gather together and catch up with artists, colleagues, and friends from around the world. It’s a time to see what’s new from artists we love and to rediscover artists we may have forgotten. And it’s a time to swap stories, schedule studio visits, meet up with old friends, and meet new ones. And what’s better than a friend who’s in the know? So as Frieze opens, we caught up with some art world insiders to see what they’ll be looking for at the fairs and around town.

  • Punk occupies a truly strange role in our cultural landscape. It's arguable that it doesn’t even exist anymore, yet much more of our culture today is inspired by punk ideology and spirit. This strange paradox serves as the impetus for In a Post-World: Post-Punk Art Now, a group exhibition organized by Canadian creative organization Pesot, held at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn.

  • Die Jubiläums-Ostrale konzentriert sich aufs Kerngeschäft. Ihr Motto „error:x“ kokettiert mit der Computersprache, aber digitale bzw. virtuelle Welten sind nicht ihr Hauptfeld. Sie zeigt in erster Linie Bilder, die meist malerisch erscheinen, auch wenn es sich um Fotografien handelt: das Dokumentarische spielt kaum eine Rolle.

BIOGRAPHY
Adam Pendleton (b. 1984, Richmond, Virginia) is a conceptual artist known for his multi-disciplinary practice, which moves fluidly between painting, publishing, photographic collage, video and performance. His work centers on an engagement with language, in both the figurative and literal senses, and the re-contextualization of history through appropriated imagery to establish alternative interpretations of the present and, as the artist has explained, “a future dynamic where new historical narratives and meanings can exist.”
