Art In America

Anne Doran

Anne Doran's constellation-like arrangements of fragmented photos on honeycomb aluminum could be seen as time capsules of the moment before the Internet changed our daily lives. Yet her muscular work also comments perceptively on what those changes...

Sculptor, painter, musician and educator Lonnie Holley was born in Alabama in 1950.

Vern Blosum

Of all the alter egos invented by artists in the past 100 years or so, from R. Mutt to John Dogg, none, perhaps, is more mysterious or obscure than the fictional painter Vern Blosum. Blosum was the brainchild of a young abstractionist, newly graduated...

Jimmy DeSana

Jimmy DeSana, who died at 40 of AIDs, was one of a generation of artist-photographers—among them Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin and DeSana's close friend Laurie Simmons—who came of age in the 1970s in New York, Buffalo and Boston.

Martial Raysse

NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash And No Star

In 1993, Bill Clinton was inaugurated as the 42nd president of the United States, the World Wide Web was less than two years old and the U.S. economy, including the art market, was still suffering the effects of the stock market crash of 1987.

Letha Wilson

One of a number of contemporary artists who are blurring the lines between photography and other mediums, Letha Wilson makes artworks that are as much sculptures as photographs.

Kutlug Ataman

The play between sense and nonsense was the leitmotif of this show of recent works by Turkish-born filmmaker and artist Kutluń? Ataman. The exhibition comprised a selection of pieces from Ataman’s series “Mesopotamian Dramaturgies” (begun in 2009),...
