‘Antony Zito’s Ancient Recent Past’ By Anthony Haden-Guest

December 16, 2019

Art worlds were often rooted in a distinctive milieu, and artworks generated in Montmartre pre-World War I, say, or London’s Chelsea post-World War II, are more likely to clue you in to the time and place of their making than the art produced nowadays, which has become a global industry. Antony Zito’s art does just…

‘Pirate Zito’ By Jim Jarmusch

December 9, 2019

I’ve been a fan (and friend) of Zito’s for several decades now. I call him “Pirate Zito,” partly because of his somewhat piratical appearance, but more because of the attitude and approach to his creative expression. (Also, for some years now, Zito and I have been mutually convinced that in previous lives, in a previous…

‘On the Street Named Pedro Pietri’ by Bob Holman

December 6, 2019

On the most amazing day you were born and you were died We was waiting for you everywhere and you surprised us By showing up everywhere else Where once were bottles now only bottlecaps hang in mid-joint Waiting for the air to turn into red wine and cheeseburgers And the bottlecaps without bottles will be…

Tessa Hugues-Freeland Filmography by Charlie Ahearn

November 4, 2019

Watching some of Tessa’s hallucinatory classics like Instinct: Bitches Side is my idea of cinematic pleasure: a bizarre mix of Bette Davis, Mae West, a spider, and a sexy seductress, all driven by a score echoing film history. Tessa has been at it since the early 80s, making films for no money…films clearly stamped with…

Tripping the Light Fantastic By Carlo McCormick

October 29, 2019

For some 40 years, Tessa Hughes-Freeland has been, in her own highly idiosyncratic way, carving out an utterly unique place within the realm of art and film. Sometimes it makes sense, corresponding with cultural currents that have placed her work firmly within a recognizable context, allowing us to see her as part of something larger,…

Tessa Hughes-Freeland By Ed Halter

October 24, 2019

The world as seen in Tessa Hughes-Freeland’s early films is one of startling extremities. In movies such as her do-it-yourself go-go dancer documentary Baby Doll (1982), shot at Tribeca’s fabled Baby Doll Lounge, or Dirty (1992), her unrelenting adaptation of George Bataille’s tale of excremental abjection Le Bleu du Ciel (Blue of Noon) made with…

The Third Position: Sculpture at the Extremes by Carlo McCormick

October 8, 2019

Click Here to view the catalog for Linus Coraggio’s Ramifications. For all that we spend countless lives and generations just trying to figure things out—as if the folly of understanding the world and universe around us were endemic to the human condition—there is a place where logic ends, and that too constitutes a fundamental place…

Linus Coraggio—The Existential Weld by Brad Melamed

October 1, 2019

Click Here to view the catalog for Linus Coraggio’s Ramifications. Apocalyptic Now. On the last day of July 2019, a thunderstorm plays soundtrack to the works that line the walls of Linus Coraggioʼs studio. It is an immersive environment, a portal into the apocalyptic subversion that is the “now” of Coraggio’s work. Ranging in scale…

The Lighter Side of Heavy Metal: The Welded Steel and Scrap Metal Works of Linus Coraggio by Michael Carter

September 23, 2019

Click Here to view the catalog for Linus Coraggio’s Ramifications. I first encountered the work of Linus Coraggio in the summer of 1984 at Avenue B Gallery in the East Village. With his scrap-metal “3-D graffiti” and cartoony welded-steel constructions, the young artist’s work built upon the first wave of E.V. street art, with a…
