Dona Nelson: Models Stand Close to the Paintings Thomas Erben Gallery, NYC Through May 6th, 2017

Dona Nelson is showing new paintings at Thomas Erben Gallery. There is no other artist in America that is a "modern painter" in so many different ways without losing her centre.

Trying to subvert its meaning seems to be part of the definition of what modern art is. There doesn't seem to be an accurate way to define an activity that is made up of a system or interelating systems that has occasional contradictions built into it, But art doesn't seem the worse for it. Modern painting in particular is like a series of interconnected temples where people are constantly entering and trying to knock down a load bearing pillar to see if it still stands or if it's now something else. It's quite often a sign that that particular approach is thriving.

'Arrow' Showrunners Reveal How Oliver Queen Suddenly Became Hilarious

When "Arrow" kicks off its new season Wednesday, fans will undoubtedly notice that Star City's crime-fighting archer has turned over a brand new leaf -- an emerald one, to be precise.

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) spent the first three seasons of his successful CW series battling his inner demons by shooting holes in them with arrows, but after screening the superb Season 4 premiere, Moviefone is happy to report our hero has finally learned healthier ways to cope.

Last season ended with Ollie jumping into a convertible with his ladylove Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) as the two of them quite literally took the long and windy road toward happily ever after. A few months have passed by the time Season 4 picks up, but Oliver's shiny new disposition still holds strong. He eventually winds his way back to Star City, of course, but not before rebranding himself as the Green Arrow, complete with his greenest suit yet.

Interview: Asif Kapadia, James Gay-Rees on Finding ‘Amy’

Chicago – She burned like a firework in the sky, and just as quickly faded away. The unique voice of Amy Winehouse was fresh air into the music vacuum, and yet the delicate state of her destructive addictions succumbed to a sudden notoriety. Director Asif Kapadia and producer James Gay-Rees tell her story in ‘Amy.’

The documentary stands by itself as a trek into darkness, through a 21st Century life captured on video, film and photographs from childhood to superstar fame. Amy Winehouse was a girl from North London with a jazz smooth vocal styling seemingly from the gods. She was twenty years old when her first album, “Frank” (2003), brought her to a wider audience. The follow-up in 2008, “Black to Black,” established Winehouse as a one-of-a-kind singer and personality. The ironic song “Rehab” from that album was a huge hit, but couldn’t save Winehouse from her own tragic sensitivity to love,

Extending the Window: A Conversation with Ken Jacobs

  • MUBI
Ken Jacobs. Photo by María Meseguer.This past June in A Coruña, Spain (S8) 6th Mostra de Cinema Periferico hosted a retrospective of Ken Jacobs. A legend of experimental filmmaking, this New Yorker gave a master-class about the influence of abstract paintings on his work, presented a broad selection of films in his filmography to the audience, and premiered New Paintings by Ken Jacobs (2015), a new film performance using his famous Nervous Magic Lantern, consisting of a series of abstract slides that he projects with a special device of his own creation. The program focused on Jacobs’ first films, close to a kind of Brakhage-like documentary style, the long series he made along with Jack Smith as an actor/performer, and his experiments with 3D, both in film and digital formats. After all these screenings, we had a coffee or two with him and talked about the films in the program.

3-Sentence Reviews: Condo, Perich, and More

  • Vulture
George Condo, "Double Heads / Black Paintings / Abstractions" Skarstedt, 550 West 21st Street Through November 8 George Condo's pizzazz-packed paintings are fun to look at and look like they were fun to make. Conglomerations of Picasso, Cubism, clown portraits, cartoons, Surrealism, dashes of Basquiat’s megawatt graphic energy, and splashes of de Kooning (especially his abstract 1950 masterpiece, Excavation) provide wall power and give viewers a lot to look at and relish. Very briefly. Anton Perich, "Electric Paintings 1978–2014" Postmasters, 54 Franklin StreetThe first sentence of this exhibition's punchy press release takes a direct shot at something I wrote, pointing out "No, Wade Guyton did not 'invent a new paint brush,' Anton Perich did it in 1978, when Guyton was six." (I stand corrected.) Indeed, once upon a time in 1976, Perich developed what the gallery refers to as "a colossal electric painting machine, a painterly precursor to the inkjet paintings of today,"

Celebrating the Late Karen Black at Bam

Celebrating the Late Karen Black at Bam
With those off-kilter features and that bold, confident carriage, she might have stepped out of Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon: Karen Black was one of the most striking and strange character actresses of the 1970s, though she became relegated to lesser roles—and, sometimes, uncharitable jokes about her failed career—in the years after. But Black at her best was really too idiosyncratic to be a huge star. Instead, the actress, who died in August after a battle with cancer, came to represent the kind of oddball beauty and cubist grace that could find a home in American movies of the '70s. No one else looked or acted like Karen Black; no one could if they tried.

It's time to reconsider Black, and BAMcinématek's eight-film retrospective, which runs ...

‘Picasso Baby’ Live: Jerry Saltz Goes Face-to-Face With Jay-z

  • Vulture
The invitation to the super-secret Jay-z event came out of nowhere, three days before it was scheduled to happen. The event's producer, the beloved-in-the-art-world gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, e-mailed, asking whether I'd be free Wednesday at noon. The rap artist, impresario, cultural force, and art collector would be performing his new track “Picasso Baby” at the Pace Gallery in Chelsea. For. Six. Hours. Over and over and over. Heck yes. But even though I'm a fan — The Black Album blew my mind — I had a queasy feeling about this. Though hip-hop is not exactly my bailiwick, performance art I know a little about, and this Jay-z thing sounded depressingly familiar. It had a loud echo of Marina Abramovic, the performance diva known for her marathon performances-spectacles-drudgeries. It also reminded me of the Icelandic wizard Ragnar Kjartansson’s renditions of the same song performed live non-stop for hours. Last season at

Jay-z – Magna Carta Holy Grail Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

“The album is about, like this duality of how do you navigate through this whole thing, through success, through failures, through all this and remain yourself.” These thoughts are expressed by Sean “Jay-z” Carter in his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The album’s announcement was by far the biggest and most welcomed surprise of the summer. On June 16, 2013, during the NBA finals, a Samsung Galaxy commercial featuring Jay-z and the worlds top record producers was presented to the world that officially announced the release his twelfth studio album and his first since 2009. In an exclusive deal with Samsung, Magna Carta Holy Grail would be available on July 4 to the first million Samsung Galaxy owners that download the official app. The rest of the world would have to wait 72 hours until it is released in stores and through digital download on July 7.

Mirror Moves

Henri Matisse: In Search of True Painting Metropolitan Museum of Art Through March 17, 2013   The prospect of seeing forty-nine of Matisse's finest works should be enticement enough. However, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has upped the ante by arranging this somewhat thematic exhibition in groupings that show the painter refining his personal explorations in modernist paintings through endless, subtle variations. Although the pedagogical aspects of this might seem a little staid at first flush, upon close study one becomes entranced by the intricate, reductive logic that lay at the heart of all of Matisse's works.

From the start Matisse was an equal-opportunity gatherer and collector of other artists' styles and sensibilities: Giotto, Moreau, Cézanne, and van Gogh, to name a few. This is apparent right from the start of the show.

Two paintings, "Still Life with Compote and Fruit" (1899) and "Still Life with Compote, Apples and Oranges" (1899), show Matisse moving already

Alex Cross – The Review

Some actors just weren’t born to play an action hero. Some look silly in a fight. Some sound ridiculous acting tough. He may have taken cross-dressing to successful heights, but Tyler Perry looks less foolish in a dress than he does in the action scenes of the new thriller Alex Cross. It’s a prequel to a pair of Washington, D.C.-set thrillers that starred Morgan Freeman as Cross; Along Came A Spider (2001) and Kiss The Girls (1997). The new film is something of an origin story, recounting the events that ultimately drove the clever forensic psychologist, to move to D.C. from Detroit. The new film finds Detective Cross a likeable family man, living with his wife Maria (Carmen Ejogo – an actress I liked in Sparkle also good here) and feisty mother played by Jamie Farr (Kidding ! – Cicely Tyson). Cross’ boyhood friend and partner is Thomas Kane (Edward Burns

'Once' and Gershwins lead 2012 Tony Awards nominations

"Once," a contained sweet musical set in an Irish pub, leads the 66th Annual Tony Awards nominations with 11 nods. Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") and Kristin Chenoweth ("Gcb") announced the nominees from the New York Public Library for Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.

Jeremy Deller exhibits and Donatello awes – the week in art

One of the most authentic and important artists of modern Britain opens at the Hayward, while Donatello's awe-inspiring power of illusion is unleashed at the V&A – all in your weekly roundup

Exhibition of the Week: Jeremy Deller

Art is alchemy. Who can say why one work of art lives and another dies? Why one artist can create images that take flight while another works assiduously at producing entropic stuff? Or why art that once seemed magical suddenly seems gross? Like I say – it's an alchemical process that defies logic.

The most alchemical British artist of my generation is Jeremy Deller. This curator of social happenings has none of the conventional attributes of an artist at all. He does nothing by the book – this is, for instance, the first proper gallery exhibition of his works. His most famous creations are events and performances that involved large numbers of people: a

Greatest Horror Movies Ever Made: Part 6: Best (Italian) Giallo Films

The term “giallo” initially referred to cheap yellow paperbacks (printed American mysteries from writers such as Agatha Christie), that were distributed in post-fascist Italy. Applied to cinema, the genre is comprised of equal parts early pulp thrillers, mystery novels, with a willingness to gleefully explore onscreen sex and violence in provocative, innovative ways. Giallos are strikingly different from American crime films: they value style and plot over characterization, and tend towards unapologetic displays of violence, sexual content, and taboo exploration. The genre is known for stylistic excess, characterized by unnatural yet intriguing lighting techniques, convoluted plots, red herrings, extended murder sequences, excessive bloodletting, stylish camerawork and unusual musical arrangements. Amidst the ‘creative kill’ set-pieces are thematic undercurrents along with a whodunit element, usually some sort of twist ending. Here is my list of the best giallo films – made strictly by Italian directors, so don’t expect Black Swan, Amer or
