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…

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.

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…

Linus Coraggio: Onto the Streets by Anthony Haden-Guest

September 17, 2019

Click Here to view the catalog for Linus Coraggio’s Ramifications.  When the street art phenom broke big in the early- 80s, art worldlings got a grip soon enough and Keith  Haring, Kenny Scharf, and Jean-Michel Basquiat became the anointed ones. But in 2017, Richard Hambleton, the creator of that street presence, Shadowman, OD’d. And blew…

June 12, 2019

A young woman on the cusp of 22 years of age is sentenced to life in prison. A 14-year-old teen hasn’t seen his family in six months because they could not afford to post bail. A 45-year-old woman with three children serves a four-year sentence for opioid possession—developing an addiction to the drug after a…
