Joanne Greenbaum on Translating Painting Into Sculpture "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Joanne Greenbaum, Untitled (2018), enamel on porcelain, 5 1/2 x 4 3/4 x 4 1/2 inches (image courtesy of the artist and 56 Henry)

The New York-based artist Joanne Greenbaum, is well known for her abstract painting. We have the pleasure now of learning about her small sculptures and commitment to making artist books. For her latest show Caput Mortuum, on view at 56 Henry, 10 years worth of paintings are re-imagined as sculpture. The work runs the gamut of shapes painted in hues of saturated color, gradients, scribbles, to drips. The sculptures are stacked in an installation on a table, either encased in, or on top of, clear plexiglass boxes. Greenbaum and I spoke about how she developed her sculptural practice and how it influences her other work.

*    *    *

Samuel Jablon: How long have you been making sculpture, and have they always been ceramic?

Joanne Greenbaum: I started making sculpture in 2003 and 2004 but not in clay. I made some very small things in sculpey and some other air-dry materials. I wanted at first to understand some of the things in my paintings that resembled sculptures or fictional structures. Initially it was the bright colors of the sculpey that I responded to and then the ability to make something fast and bake it in the oven. I didnt think it would be something I would pursue, and made these things as notes and three-dimensional drawings for the studio, to have on my table to look...

Bill Gates Names 5 Books You Should Read This Summer "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

It's something of a tradition. Every summer, philanthropist/Microsoft founder Bill Gates recommends five books to read during the slow summer months. This year's list, he tells us, wrestles with some big questions: "What makes a genius tick? Why do bad things happen to good people? Where does humanity come from, and where are we headed?"

And now, without no further ado, here's Bill's list for 2018. The text below is his, not mine:

Leonardo da Vinci, by Walter Isaacson. I think Leonardo was one of the most fascinating people ever. Although today hes best known as a painter, Leonardo had an absurdly wide range of interests, from human anatomy to the theater. Isaacson does the best job Ive seen of pulling together the different strands of Leonardos life and explaining what made him so exceptional. A worthy follow-up to Isaacsons great biographies of Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs. [Read his blog post on the book here.]

Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies Ive Loved, by Kate Bowler. When Bowler, a professor at Duke Divinity School, is diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer, she sets out to understand why it happened. Is it a test of her character? The result is a heartbreaking, surprisingly funny memoir about faith and coming to grips with your own mortality. [Read his blog post on the book here.]

Lincoln in the Bardo, by George Saunders. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about Abraham Lincoln, but this novel made me rethink parts of his life. It blends historical facts from the Civil War with fantastical elementsits basically a long conversation among 166 ghosts, including Lincolns deceased son. I got new insight into the way Lincoln must have been crushed by the weight of both grief and responsibility. This is one of those fascinating, ambiguous books youll want to discuss with a friend when youre done. [Read his blog post on this book here.]

Swarovski Crystal Sculptures by Daniel Jacob Immortalize Popsicles, Sneakers, and Other Pop Culture Icons "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Artist Daniel Jacob began making art in Chicago in the early 1990s, channeling his ideas into sculptures and works on paper. After spending most of his career in business, he has returned to his love of art. His current practice experiments with crystals and stones to create pop culture-inspired sculptures of dripping popsicles, Air Jordan sneakers, animals, and elements of city infrastructure, like sewer grates.

Each of Jacobs works begin as three-dimensional scans which are then sculpted into cast resin and finally topped by hand with hundreds of thousands of multi-colored Swarovski crystals. A few of Jacobs sculptures are currently on view at the recently opened Nonfinito Gallery in New York through May 31, 2018. You can see more of the artists work on his website and Instagram.

That Summer Offers a More Human Look at the Women of Grey Gardens "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Little Edie Beale singing and Lee Radziwill in the garden of Grey Gardens in That Summer by Gran Olsson (courtesy Sundance Selects)

In 1975, a cult-hit documentary turned a pair of celebrity-adjacent recluses into unlikely pop icons. Grey Gardensfrom filmmaking siblings Albert and David Maysles and co-directors Muffie Meyer and Ellen Hovde, made the titular Long Island manor into an instant cultural signifier for faded glory and eccentric womanhood. The movie is equally beloved by cinephiles, who appreciate its position in the history of direct cinema, and camp enthusiasts, who idolize its unique, extremely quotable lead subjects, the Beales. Popular fascination with that mother-daughter pair would lead various creators back to them over the years, even after their deaths. But before all that, there was a different, abandoned film project featuring the Beales. The new documentary That Summer is not just another movie cashing in on Grey Gardens interest, but a peek back through the decades into a formerly closed-off piece of history.

Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale (Big Edie) and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale (Little Edie) might have gone unseen by the wider world, historical footnotes for the fact that they were the aunt and cousin, respectively, of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. By 1972, they were black sheep to the old money Bouvier clan, having secluded themselves for 20 years in Grey Gardens, their onetime East Hampton summer home. Long cut out of all wills and bereft of any funds, the Beales were unable to maintain the 28-room house, which by that year was derelict and rife with stray cats (among other wildlife) and fleas. The county health department was prepared to destroy the house, but a New York Magazine article brought wide attention to the Bealess plight, and Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwill funded a cleanup effort.

A Roving Performance Art Festival Works to Break Down Binaries "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The 2018 edition of the diverse, cosmopolitan, and true to its name roving Itinerant Performance Art Festival is in its second and final week as it makes its way across all five boroughs. After Sundays program at Staten Island Arts and yesterdays symposium at La Guardia Community College, the festival continues at the Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance (today), Smack Mellon (Wednesday), the BMCC Theater Program (Thursday), and the Kockdown Center (Friday).

The Itinerant Festivals varied programming (curated by artist Hector Canonge) boasts a unifying motif befitting a year that thus far has been defined by political divisiveness and seemingly unbridgeable chasms between  this years works all explore alternatives to binary identity constructions, whether pertaining to gender, identity, nationality, or other categories.

Through live performances and videos, the festival boasts performing artists working in a range of idioms, from pieces informed by the aesthetics of experimental theater, contemporary music, clowning, and more. As Hyperallergic critics noted last year in writing about Itinerant, such series are often impossible for any one person to write about and see in their entirety. The sheer scope, on the other hand, allows for an impressive showcase of expression. This years program is no less sprawling, but for my money the most alluring program is Thurs...

Discover David Lynchs Bizarre & Minimalist Comic Strip, The Angriest Dog in the World (1983-1992) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Most David Lynch fans discover him through his films. But those of us who read alternative weekly newspapers in their 1980s and 90s heyday may well have first encountered his work in another medium entirely: the comic strip. Like many of the best-known examples of the form, Lynch's comic strip stars an animal, specifically a dog, but a dog "so angry he cannot move. He cannot eat. He cannot sleep. He can just barely growl. Bound so tightly with tension and anger, he approaches the state of rigor mortis." That text, which prepared readers for a reading experience some way from Marmaduke, introduced each and every edition of The Angriest Dog in the World, which ran between 1983 and 1992.

During that entire time, the strip's artwork never changed either: four panels in which the titular dog strains against a rope staked down in a suburban backyard, in the last of which night has fallen. The sole variation came in the word bubbles that occasionally emerged from the window of the house, presumably representing the voice of the dog's owners.




You can see a few examples at Lynchnet. "If everything is real... then nothing is real as well," it says one week. On another: "It must be clear to even the non-mathematician that the things in this world just don't add up to beans." Or, in a nod to the region of The Angriest Dog in the World's home paper the LA Reader: "Bill... who is this San Andreas? I can't believe it's all his fault."

"At some point David Lynch called up the editor at the time, James Vowell, and said, Hi, I'd like to do a comic strip for you," says former Reader editor Richard Gehr as quoted by John F. Kelly at Spooky Comics. Every week thereafter, Lynch would phone the Reader to dictate the text of the latest strip. "We would give it to somebody in the production department and they would White Out the panels from the week before and write...
