For researching ideas I have been reading two books- Joseph Beuys reader and Realism Materialism Art, which was published by Bard's Center for Curatorial Studies. I have been reading an article a day from both publications and taking notes on things I find important.
THE VILLAGE VOICE : Art In Brief
“ In this show I attempt to combine the natural and mechanical to bring to bear a freedom that is inherent in the relations the living have with the material world, and most importantly that relation with other forms of life. By locating embodied humans in the midst of things, I hope to provoke a novel way to understand and engage with a dense material world in which the human species is irreducibly apart.” - Apart from that they’re awful paintings. Boycott this show.
