About

"PARIS LA is born of shared perspectives. It’s a project, like a love story, that comes from the feeling of being in one place, thinking about another.

DIRTY VESTIGES’ SURPLUS OF TOUCHING

DIRTY VESTIGES—conceived, and performed this week at Human Resources, by Simone Aughterlony and Michael Günzburger—is a “close-up inquiry into both the happenstance and determinism of dirt transmission. Attraction and repulsion are mutual forces that go beyond the surface and play out in this sleazy cleaning/mess-making fantasy. In an intensely concentrated environment and companioned by a queer alchemy of materials, […]

DARRYL PINCKNEY ON DANA SCHUTZ AND HER DETRACTORS

“[The black presence in the contemporary art scene] almost feels as though an Occupy High Art movement is happening….How black people have been seen in history continues to influence how they are seen today. Yet the high visibility of blacks in the art world hasn’t done away with the critical defensiveness that made the controversy […]
