Art: What's all the talk about? The Artist Talk on Art series, 40+ years youngArt: What's all the talk about? The Artist Talk on Art series, 40+ years young
by Barry Kostrinsky - Jan 31, 2018

Art is a language. Foreign to many and understood by few, her language is subtle, self-referential, sublime and mercurial. Most agree a picture is worth a thousand words but which thousand and does that tell the full story? The Artists Talk on Art (ATOA) panel series is the longest on-going dialogue in the visual arts. Once upon a time it was a unique idea to have artists talk about their art. Today talks occur almost daily in NYC at Museums, galleries and on social media threads. To celebrate the legacy the ATOA has organized 'Going Postal' a postcard style fundraiser to help with costs associated with running the non-profit and the work and cost to deliver over 40 years of historical dialogues to the Smithsonian's Archives of American Art.

Hop on the 4 or the D train and travel north young men and woman to see art in the South Bronx. No, that's not a typo, I did not mean to say go see the Yankees. Like many inner cities including Detroit, the Bronx is best known for high crime, poor health condition and low test scores; However these inner cities are also the breeding ground for countless innovative film makers, music makers, visual artists and thought provoking thinkers. The why and how the tough conditions of these neighborhoods breeds an aesthetic flourishing is perplexing to figure out. (more...)

by Barry Kostrinsky - Aug 30, 2013

It is over 20 years since the important exhibit at MOMA 'High and Low: Modern art and Popular Culture' and over 40 years since Warhol borrowed from soda pop, ketchup, soup- a full lunch plate special of art supplies. Elevated to arts center stage on both canvas and auction podiums, these once thought plebian forms of low art have gone gargantuan. Comic related exhibits have run rampant in the art world for the last 10 years and yet many still hold fast to the aesthetic cast system and its hierarchy forged by iron-age men, that still considers comics just for kids.

Some of the best ways to collect art at reasonable prices is to make a habit of going to the many art sales aimed at benefitting an important arts organization.

This Monday July 22 from 5-9pm you can sip some wine, have an hors d-oeuvre or two and meet and see works by some 50 artists that have congealed around the BRONXARTSSPACE. (more...)
