Summer Reading List at Arch Enemy Arts

[Lauren reminisces about summer assignments and classic literature–the playful topic of this group show. Artists chose the media they preferred to bring their favorite books to life. — the artblog editors] Arch Enemy Arts, famous for representing illustrative, street-influenced artwork, has assigned a sentimental project to its artists. Summer Reading List invites 20 artists to recreate their favorite book in the medium of their choice, each piece a faint reminder of summers past–lying in thick, hot air with sticky Popsicle fingers turning the pages of our school-assigned summer reading. Arch Enemy presents us with an exhibition rich in character and ... More » »

News post – Pageant:Soloveev back in play, Alex Podesta in Arlington’s CSA retrospective, new look for Leeway, opportunities and more!

News Maria Teicher’s skill for lending images of suffocation a terrifying grandeur was rightly noticed by New American Paintings during the magazine’s Armory Week highlights. “When looking at the plastic veiled portraits of Maria Teicher, you can’t help but find yourself a bit short of breath,” reviewer Elizabeth Devlin, Boston Contributor acknowledges. “We all have our struggles and it’s hard not to view the works through a personal lens, imposing our own narratives upon the obscured figures.” Teicher’s work is part of the showing by Arch Enemy Arts. Queen Village is always a little more incandescent when Pageant: Soloveev is in ... More » »

News post – Talkback from NYC art fairs, Vox hosts Riot Grrrl exhibit, Bodega re-opens, opportunities and more!

News via Arch Enemy Arts – We could try to capture in words what the atmosphere of this week has been like for artists presenting/having their life forces drained at city fairs, but this photo, from Arch Enemy Arts, is a fait accompli. “Repost. Very late last night. Hanging our show at Fountain NYC. @noahgalleryml caught me praying for coffee.” We’re taking in the feedback on this year’s Whitney Biennial with a necessary amount of side-eye. It’s great! It’s boring! It’s great in places and boring in others! Earth-shattering. Anthony Elms’ curated floor, though, has been a magnet for people ... More » »

News post – Mary Smull SPINS at the Baltimore Museum, Volta ’14 powers up, Ellie Brown’s diary onstage, opportunities and more!

News The mind of a child of the eighties, as read by a grown man in 2014: Ellie Brown has a comedy Dear Diary, Bye coming to the Skinner Studio on the 3rd floor of Plays and Players Theater, from April 4-13.  Originally workshopped for the SoLow Festival in 2013, Dear Diary, Bye is based on the diary of nine-year old Ellie Brown, but – and it’s a hilarious but – performed by an adult male actor. This is Ellie’s first play, so it’s got an extra new feel despite its 1984 vintage. Student tickets are $15 and adult tickets are $20. Show times are: Preview 4/4 8pm, Opening ... More » »

News The Parkway has gigantic changes in the works, both physically and economically: a “window on Philadelphia” that promises 1500 new jobs. This week, Brian Roberts heralded the construction of the new $1 billion Comcast Innovation & Technology Center on the 1800 block of Arch Street in Center City. Not only are we looking at a $1.2 billion 59-story, 1,121-foot tower to house the Comcast Center, NBC 10/WCAU and Telemundo 62/WWSI, we’re also given to understand that this means ample space for local technology startups, businesses and, presumably, artistic innovation and increased traffic to the arts in the area. LAMOCA’s had a ... More » »

2000. Chromogenic Print, 40 x 30 inches. Edition 1/5.

News – Apocalypse art, Erica Minutella’s Hackathon project, Lisa Kereszi in ATL, Damian Moppett’s hometown show, opportunities and more!

News Here’s a conundrum: if the world ends, you won’t get to see any of the apocalyptic-themed art around town, but if it doesn’t end, the apocalyptic-themed art will be robbed of context, at least unless we can put it all in a time capsule for the next time someone puts forth another end date for the universe as we know it. How to reconcile this? I can’t give you an answer, but I can tell you that the shows at Arch Enemy and PhilaMOCA deliver the eschatological goods. Arch Enemy’s show, “The Day and the Hour Unknown” features the ... More » »
