I understand the want for ease in creativity, but like all mediums, architecture is ever evolving. But like painting, you cannot abolish it's history, and therefore are never starting anew, on a fresh canvas. So suck it up architecture, your creative genius is purely dependent on the foundations of the past.
If anything, the new modes of architecture look hap hazard in juxtaposition to the efforts of the past.
'wifebeater' was common parlance in my midwest Christian high school in 1998
I can't believe no one's commented on how awesome this stuff is. What's a matter with you people?
Excellent question. Perhaps for those who understand the relational aesthetics and it's history, Tiravanija's work may seem tired, redundant. However, because it is an experience and not an object, the work can only exist for a limited number of people -- and thus has the potential to be highly relevant for newcomers. Relational aesthetics as a movement then might have more endurance than most other artistic movements ...
Definitely venture out to discover these two artists.
They are beautiful art and social commentary. Definitely to be seen.

What a thoughtful and well-written article about a compelling subject. Can't wait to see the exhibition!
There's a HUGE difference between 'stripper' pole dancing & other forms of pole dancing for art & fitness. Even more evolved, are differences in the fitness industry between 'pole fitness' and 'pole sport.' World Pole Sport & Fitness has grown immensely over the past few years all over the globe. Competitive pole arts have become technical, difficult & exciting-and are hugely popular among men, women...and yes, even the youth! Many true, athletic pole & aerial schools include training for all ages & genders now. Worldwide competitions have men & women categories, and ages are getting younger & younger. Pole Sports are well on their way to the Olympic Arena-and have already completed several of the IOC requirements to become a test sport in the Olympics-2020 in Brazil. Whether you like it, agree with it, misunderstand it or otherwise...Pole Fitness & Sport will continue to move forward-well beyond it's stereotypes. It has maintained it's popularity because it works...people love & enjoy it because it is a fun, challenging, highly effective, non-monotonous form of exercise that also allows for artistic expression & opportunities to advance, perform & compete internationally. Anyone really can gain something from participating in pole workouts for both fitness & fun. So, jump on board, get educated, and get ready for the world of vertical dance & acrobatics to dominate the future! We'd love to help! We are the ONLY pole fitness industry-endorsed media, offering a quality, well-researched publication in both online & print formats! Best Wishes!
Why GREY when there are so many beautiful colors?
beautifull work of Julie
The artist's name is spelt incorrectly in your title. It's Abramovic, not Ambamovic.
atwood's work in the edible woman couldn't be stronger... or sweeter... or...
point being, with such a rich and gooey precedent, i am eager to see get a taste...
(or is it a piece?)
curious that Dustin Wayne Harris let the women do all the work of stirring things up and found their cakes a metaphor for the full relationship. where is he in this?

Thankyou for perceptive criticisms; I agree with most except for the simplistic " head is up on the clouds" comment for "Afterlife afterthought" Also I feel that the smoothness of the large peices makes the observer identify with their own skin and themselves I dont find the exhibition depressing perhaps imposing and uncomfortable because as is often with Alzamora's work it makes us confront our feelings, EXPRESS our feelings, and question our life
Amazing words for amazing art. Well done Emil and Benjamin!
So great to see this article on affordable art. There is, without a doubt, an abundance of talented, independent artists selling their work for cheap. It's just a matter of helping people to connect and find art that resonates.
I'd also recommend the following galleries which all have online presence:
Hey! Wow, it's not often that you get an answer back when a comment is left on a site, thank you for the clarification and for your work. It's easy to forget that it was just two people working on what really turned out to have an immense impact. Funny that your use the term re(verb), I often think of it as an echo.
