The Brooklyn Museum has unbound eight notebooks penned by American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, from 1980 to 1987 (through August 23). 

Some 160 pages freed from these notebooks are spread out along the walls, as well as around 30 visual artworks demonstrating Basquiat’s translation of language into painting. 

It’s not entirely clear if we are to treat the writings as keys to understanding Basquiat’s output, or, alternatively, as unscripted artifacts from his life.

Summer Art Fridays: Photographer Eddy Vallante

It’s the end of the summer, and thus our last selection for our Summer Fridays blog. To finish up on an excellent note, we chose the work of 30-year-old Brooklyn photographer Eddy Vallante, whose portraits of musicians make his Tumblr a must-see. This shot, however, is of a puppy, gazing longingly out the window at something just out of reach. It’s how we all feel looking out at the last warm days of August.

Describe the piece you submitted to Summer Fridays.

This is a photo of Elly. I was watching her one afternoon in Crown Heights for friends of mine who had just gotten married. I was tossing a toy around with her when something outside demanded her immediate attention. She just ran over and sat down. I don’t know what it is, but I love when dogs sit and stare like this. It’s hilarious.

The ARTInfo staff decided to put their own spin on the traditional “hand turkey” created by grade-school children by re-imagining them in the style of various famous artists - can you figure out who each hand turkey is “by?” We’ve put the “artists” in the captions if you need a little help!

Happy Thanksgiving from everyone on the Slow Art Day team!

For his sixth outing with Anton Kern Gallery in New York, David Shrigley has put aside his most recognizable format (small-scale ink sketches) in favor of large acrylic-on-paper paintings. These are joined by two sculptures of common objects — a telephone and a calculator — enlarged to uncomfortable dimensions. 

The Scottish artist is best known for a prolific body of drawings that are alternately absurd, morbid, death-obsessed, confessional, and scatological.

Introducing Summer Art Fridays

For our first weekly highlight from our Summer Fridays collaboration with ARTINFO, we chose the work of Pat Falco, an illustrator whose art combines a dry sense of humor with quirky, empathy-inspiring sketches. Falco submitted the sketch above, and we asked him to answer a few questions about the piece and his work as a whole.

Describe the piece you submitted to Summer Fridays.

“Note to Self” is part of series of notes I did, mostly poking fun at myself (and anyone that relates to me). It was a pretty simple idea just based around over-thinking the most instinctive motions because there are intimidating people around – in this case, pretty girls.

Art + Auction | 25 Most Collectable Midcareer Artists

Tim Rollins and K.O.S.

Rollins began working with Kids of Survival (K.O.S.) in the early 1980s when he was a teacher in a Bronx public school and found he could build more fruitful relationships with his students outside of the classroom than within the confines of the building. The relationship became one of artistic collaboration and continues as one of today’s longest-running collectives (if not the longest), involving a fluid group of people that includes some children of the original K.O.S. members as well as Rollins’s students from New York’s School of Visual Arts.

The works—Minimalist paintings, collages, and prints—are the physical documentation of what is actually a social and performative art practice based on seminal texts such as The Red Badge of Courage, On the Origin of Species, and Invisible Man.

A 2009 retrospective at the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College; inclusion in the 2006 Whitney Biennial; acquisition by prestigious institutions such as MoMA, Tate Modern, and the Smithsonian; as well as countless international museum and gallery exhibitions over the past 30 years speak to the longevity and consistent relevancy of the work.

Their market is stable, too. According to New York gallerist David Maupin of Lehmann Maupin, “Their primary market is steady, and they have collectors all over the world—Asia, Europe, and the United States. They’re consistent.” While large paintings can reach $150,000, smaller works and prints can be had for just a few thousand dollars.

Summer Art Fridays: Photographer Cynthia Henebry

For our latest highlight from our Summer Art Fridays collaboration with ARTINFO, we chose the work of photographer Cynthia Henebry, a Virginia-based artist whose sensitive, emotional images often explores themes of childhood and growth. Henebry’s photos reflect a deep sense of place and a joy for the things that make summer great: the season’s abundance of light, the presence of family, and the sense of freedom that floats in the air.

Describe the piece you submitted to Summer Fridays.

This is a picture of two girls who I frequently photograph, Eloise and Sophia. They are friends, not sisters, by the way. Our families were at the pool together, and when I saw them hanging out under the tree in that light, I knew the shot that I wanted right away.

Summer Art Fridays: Artist James Zdaniewski

For our fifth weekly highlight in our Summer Fridays collaboration with ArtInfo, we chose the work of James Zdaniewski, whose drawing immediately reminded us of what it felt like to spring off a diving board and be suspended momentarily in the air. After checking in with Zdaniewski for the interview below, we found out that it was just that experience that inspired him to create the sketch, which will be turned into a mixed media collage.

Describe the piece you submitted to Summer Fridays.

I submitted the piece titled Six and Seven, a charcoal drawing. This is part of my next series of works inspired by the hype of the supposed Apocalypse coming in December 2012. Based on the idea of the seven seals that bring on the apocalypse, “Six and Seven” shows two children falling freely from the sky. From this drawing I will create a silkscreen to print the work on top of a base layer of acrylic and spray paint, currently in production, to finish the concept.
