Subversive Narratives: An Interview With Ryan Heffington

Subversive Narratives- An Interview With Ryan Heffington

Ryan Heffington has carved an extremely unique place in the world of dance and contemporary art. If you’ve seen the music video for Sia’s triple-platinum song Chandelier, you know Heffington’s work. If you’ve seen the Sigur Rós music video where Shia LaBeouf goes full frontal, you know Heffington’s work. But Heffington’s real magic exists in his spectacular live performances – where he uses the medium of modern dance and movement to paint a portrait of identity and culture in a fragmentary digital age. Next week, as part of Art Basel Miami, MAMA gallery will present Heffington’s premier of Wading Games – a performance that he describes as a “punk rock water ballet” – at the Ritz Carlton hotel. In the following interview, Heffington explains his upcoming performance in Miami and how dance can change the world. [READ INTERVIEW HERE...]

The Ecstatic Body: An Interview with Julius Smack

Posted November 26th by in Art, Music

Under the stage persona Julius Smack, Peter Hernandez is part of a new wave of emerging artists that are trying to define their identity in a century that is trying to do just the same. Often wearing white jeans, his signature white face paint, a white shirt, and a tuft of blond curls hanging out of a white baseball hat worn backwards, Julius Smack combines the slow mortal pangs of Butoh with a sense of definitive post-internet Millennial angst. His performances cross boundaries between music and performance art and he will often sing his own songs, which are produced and released by his own record label – called Practical Records. Most of Smack’s recent songs were produced in his former home in San Francisco (he is now based in Los Angeles) and they have distinct political overtones. In the following interview, Julius Smack (Peter Hernandez) talks political performative art, his recent move to Los Angeles and why he uses Starbucks cups and yoga mats in some of his performances.

Mark Flood: Another Painting @ CAMSTL

Posted November 25th by in Art

mark_flood_st_louis_another_painting

The first solo museum exhibition of Houston-based artist Mark Flood, Another Painting features key examples of the artist’s recent text, lace, and corporate logo paintings. With a deadpan and confrontational tone, Flood’s work interrogates the verbal, visual, and written language of institutions—such as government, Wall Street, and the art market—that influence everyday life. Appropriating the vernacular of these establishments, Flood seeks to reveal what he believes to be their inherent absurdity and desire to control. Another Painting will be on view until January 3, 2015 at the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis, 3750 Washington Blvd St. Louis, MO

Last Chance to See Pentti Monkkonen  High Art wind parade

Wind Parade is Los Angeles-based artist Pentti Monkkonen’s artistic interpretation of today’s cultural and literal climate. The artist asks, “What will happen to all the art in the event of a global weather or economic disaster? I have a friend whose gallery bubble wrapped his paintings so well that they floated on the surface of a flooded basement during hurricane Sandy and remained unharmed.” Pentti Monkkonen’s Wind Parade will be on view until November 29, at High Art, 17, rue des Panoyaux 75020 Paris
