Manfred Mohr: Art Only a Robot Could Love

Humans can only do so much. We can only move so quickly, can only see so far, and that’s why we’ve got machines to do the rest for us. The work of Manfred Mohr, though, takes this reasoning to an extreme: Mohr has, for the past fifty years, used computers to make artworks of such logical complexity that no human could make them alone.

@Print Magazine: Ryder Ripps Searches For Honesty Online

Web design and branding is about developing contextual relationships with human beings,” Ryder Ripps says, “and being a good artist is about having a lot of friends.” It’s an idea seen not just in his M.I.A. websites but in his larger work as well. Most of us like to believe, on the contrary, that the quality of art is paramount to its evaluation; Ripps is simply interested in exposing people to it. “Art lives within society, and society by definition is social,” he says.

Notes on Curatorial Ideas For Digital Media

“If I were a curator” rants are always the best; you get years of napkin-scribblings in a matter of minutes, and every now and again you come across something honestly new. Net artist Duncan Alexander has lobbed a few digital art exhibition ideas over at his blog Hypothete, and we just have to quibble.

Work of Art Episode One: Kitsch or Ditch

Is there anything Bravo could possible do to improve upon Work of Art’s premier season? The mind reals with that thought, but if the first episode is any indication (and it almost never is), Bravo’s challenges may exhibit a little more ingenuity than the previous season. This week’s challenge, transform a “bad” work of art, already raises the bar compared to last year’s middle school portrait assignment. Contestants were invited to chose a work from a room filled with kitschy art, and somehow a ceramic teddy remained on its pedestal. The closing shot for the scene zooms in on the teddy while ominous music plays overhead. Hilarious.

AFC’s Work of Art Season Two Supplementary Program Guide

Fame is a fickle food. Despite Bravo’s Work of Art finding certifiable Great Artist™ Abdi Farah no more than twelve months ago, they’re now looking for the next Great Artist™ – of all the nerve! Season 2 of the reality show starts tonight at 9 pm, and our Supplementary Program Guide has all the information you need to- well, to have slightly more information.

Arbitrary Arbitration in Art Review’s Power 100

It’s very hard to comment on a list ranking anything — beer, Star Wars movies, or art world figures — without negotiating some serious sass fallout. When reading comments to the 2011 Power 100, published today by Art Review, I thought of tuning my ear by spending a few minutes listening to the trash talk that follows a competition on Drag Race. What would people have to say if Dasha Zhukova gave RuPaul a “bad girl” makeover? Or if Takashi Murakami could talk about how funky his chicken is? And who wouldn’t want to see Damien Hirst lip-sync to the Stacy Q song “Two of Hearts?”

Robert Crumb on Revolution, 2006

Robert Crumb in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist, “Human beings just have a hard time getting along with each other. It’s a miracle we get along as well as we do.”

Art Fag City at The L Magazine: Haim Steinbach, Riddle Me This…

“That show?!” Not long ago I made a passing comment about how much I liked Haim Steinbach’s exhibition Creature at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery (through October 22), and it didn’t go over well. Some people I spoke to criticized the artist’s work for having remained “the same” for over 25 years; others thought his object arrangements weren’t nearly as poignant as Jeff Koons. I don’t agree with either criticism.
