Art Taipei 2018 Ocula Report Art Taipei 2018 10 November 201810 Nov 2018 : Diana d’Arenberg for Ocula

'There is nothing more boring than the story of decline,' a journalist remarked at an art criticism panel I attended the evening before making the trip to see Art Taipei (26–29 October 2018). As I attended the opening night of Asia's oldest art fair, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, those words rang in my head. Wandering up and down...

Charwei Tsai Ocula Conversation Charwei Tsai

Taiwanese artist Charwei Tsai's memorising and compulsive writing of the Heart Sutra—a Buddhist scripture that distills the wisdom of impermanence—is at the heart of her practice. Over the past ten years, Tsai has moved from writing to drawing, photography, and film—a selection of which is being presented at the Centre for Chinese...

Crush at Para Site: What if you couldn’t have it? Ocula Report Crush at Para Site: What if you couldn’t have it? 10 November 201810 Nov 2018 : Hera Chan for Ocula

Drawn on paper by Oscar Chan Yik Long in gestural black ink strokes, Cupid (2015) greets visitors with a sinister toothy smile as they enter Para Site. The strikingly fearsome figure is positioned on the wall of the gallery's entrance, near one of Chen Dandizi's vertical neon tube lights, part of the series 'Tick Away' (2015), along which a...

In his frenzied video, K-CoreaINC.K (Section A), Ryan Trecartin (b.1981) creates a satire of global corporate culture.  His characters, dubbed ‘Koreas’, are exaggerated stereotypes of the everyday office worker. They don blond wigs, office-casual wear and powder their faces, which Trecartin calls ‘workface’. Devoid of linear narrative, the video depicts characters in bizarre but strangely recognizable scenarios acting in ways that subvert our expectations of the business world.  This K-CoreaINC.K (Section A) is just one part of seven videos that together comprise Trecartin’s epic Any Ever series.  At the very young age of thirty Trecartin already has mounted solo exhibitions in such prominent institutions such as MoMA P.S.1., New York, NY; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA and Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, Austria, and distinguished himself as a prominent artist of the younger generation.

how has the internet changed the way we interact with art? Related Press how has the internet changed the way we interact with art? i-D Vice : 26 June 2018

The state of the "millennial" is a complex and nebulous thing. Some define Generation X by its widespread affinity for decorative succulents. Some note an eye for a very specific, and hotly debated, shade of apricot-salmon pink. Others scorn millennials for the remorseless, cold-blooded murder of wine corks, the napkin industry, and...

Low on the list of likely items to find in the manic-panic artwork of Ryan Trecartin: flute, clarinet, vibraphone, saxophone, triangle (the kind a chamber musician daintily dings), upright piano, and a dowdy, blowsy French horn. Yet there they were at the Park Avenue Armory on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on the surprisingly stately occasion...

The 9th Berlin Biennale, signed by the New York–based artist collective DIS (Lauren Boyle, Solomon Chase, Marco Roso, and David Toro), puts itself over as “a stage for this...
