It’s hard not to be impressed by the massive scale of the archway under the Manhattan Bridge in Dumbo. Its large stone blocks create a majestic space while supporting one of New York’s most famous bridges and evoking the power of an ancient ruin. This was the site of artist Dread Scott’s one-time-only performance “On the Impossibility of Freedom in a Country Founded on Slavery and Genocide,” which took place yesterday.

The New York Studio School’s Whitney Studio in Greenwich Village has been designated a “National Treasure” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, according to an announcement from the organization today. The building was constructed in 1877 as a carriage house but was converted by art patron Getrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1907 into a studio and salon.

(via Young Joon Kwak’s Trans/Feminine Visions)
 
LOS ANGELES — There is a new mutant form emerging, pushing its way past the thin layer that separates the interior and exterior world. In Young Joon Kwak’s exhibition at Commonwealth & Council, Mother Spill, the artist’s body overtakes her mind, erupting into the world in a way that is neither graceful, flawless, nor incredulous — it’s just pure guts and gore, beautiful in its grotesqueness. Everything about this work is goop, puddles, not-yet-formed definitions, and a sense of breaking free, a continual realization of becoming — of never having arrived. Kwak, who performs as Xina Xurner, creates new definitions of trans/femininity that reveal a delight in the grotesque, and a raw, multi-colored wave of visual sensations.

PARIS — Galerie 53 and Galerie Routes, two side-by-side galleries in Saint-Germain-des-Près, have joined together to mount an historically interesting exhibition of abstract paintings titled Trois Américains à Paris (Three Americans in Paris). This show celebrates the accomplishments of three American abstractionists in Paris who were inspired by the city as well as by Abstract Expressionism. The artists themselves, their experiences and discoveries, are an important element of this spirited exhibition: The first thing I noticed was that the work exemplifies how being outside of one’s own (American) system, yet not really within another (French) system, is tremendously liberating for an artist.

Photography as medium is not dead, but you can argue it is in a contemporary state of flux. In Robert Shore’s new book Post-Photography: The Artist with a Camera, released last month by Laurence King Publishing, 300 works are amassed by artists who are using photography in an altered state, whether it’s staged, found imagery, or claiming the digital as their own.

Last weekend, a flash mob of singers interrupted a concert of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra to stage a “Requiem for Mike Brown,” the unarmed teenager who was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, this past August. The shooting prompted widespread protests, which were met with intense force by local police, and is currently under investigation by a county grand jury, the FBI, and the Department of Justice.

(via Judge Overturns IRS on Artist Tax Deductions)
 
A ruling by the United States Tax Court last week held that an artist employed as a professor could still claim tax deductions on her independent output, the New York Times reported. The case, which centered around Hunter College professor Susan Crile, affirmed that the right to claim an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) income tax deduction on expenses related to your status as a professional artist is not jeopardized by low sales or other full time employment (in this case, teaching). The IRS had argued that Crile’s claim to be both an artist and a teacher was an “artificial” distinction, since her work was produced as a corollary of her full-time job, not as an independent avocation, and could therefore not be grounds for deductions.

LOS ANGELES — It’s a rare opportunity to be present at the birth of an exhibition as well as the death of one. It affords the prospect of seeing how the same group of artworks can shift in meaning and cohesion based on the varying location and curation. Last winter, I was lucky enough to be in Dallas to review the premiere of Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take at the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), an exhibition that was co-curated by the DMA’s senior curator of contemporary art, Jeffery Grove, and the executive director of the Walker Art Center, Olga Viso. Since then the show has had a long run, traveling from the DMA to the Walker to the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, and has now come to the final leg of its tour at the Hammer Museum at the University of California Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES — Upon entering Emma Gray’s 5 Car Garage, you must step delicately over writhing white masses to get a good look at the paintings. This is John Knuth’s Base Alchemy, where albino morph California king snakes, bred specifically for their unnatural coloring, twist and turn on the floor while being reflected in the works above, which were created through the manipulation of fly droppings and mylar. Each exhibition element exists outside of nature, snakes and paintings guided by man in hobbyist pursuit.
