INDIE ART AND THE SEVENTIES
‘You could have it so much better.’ (Franz Ferdinand) There are a number of reasons for reconsidering the art of the 1970s at this particular moment. The exemplary artist Marina Abramović has just re-enacted seven key performances from the 60s and 70s at the Guggenheim Museum New York during November 2005. “Seven Easy Pieces” consisted of Bruce Nauman’s Body Pressure (1974), Vito Acconci’s…

NOT THAT PAINTING, THE OTHER ONE
The exhibition at Bucharest’s new Museum of Contemporary Art, The Painting Museum, is a study of the portraits and styles of portraiture associated with Romania’s Communist dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu, and depictions of socialist progress.

THE BLURRED IMAGE
My grandfather was already in his 50s when he first started to take pictures. He only photographed crowds—anonymous faces at high school football games, boxing or masked Mexican wrestling matches at the Olympic Auditorium in downtown L.A. I was his little companion at these events, yet I never even noticed that he was snapping away at faces in the audience, while I was watching Mil Mascaras (the…

NEW FETISHISMS
A New Generation in Romanian Contemporary Art The most visible phenomenon on the Romanian contemporary art scene is the occurrence after the year 2000 of a seemingly homogenous young generation, between the ages of twenty and thirty. Indeed, this generation is currently engaged in an active process of defining itself as a group, as a “young generation,” with all associated implications. However…
