Species of Space
BY ROBERT POWELL
@ VOL 33
ON APR 22, 2016
Robert Powell has long been interested in encyclopaedic and organisational forms. His practice explores representations of reality that are universal, yet constantly subverted as they are enmeshed in a web of cultural and personal memory, of national histories and myths, always with the covering cherub of art history looming above. This interest was also exemplified his recent solo exhibition in Quebec City entitled ‘A Universal History of Iniquity’, which the artist has described as ‘a universal history viewed through the prism of Borges’ Aleph relocated to a Stockbridge basement.’
BY CAITLIN CASS
@ VOL 16
ON APR 14, 2016
"I make art about ineffectual dreamers who try really hard to succeed at something but always fail miserably."
In Fabricating History from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, artist and founder of the Great Moments in Western Civilization Cooperative, Caitlin Cass, focuses on the need for diverse sources in creative research, especially when you invent them yourself. She reflects on the subjectivity of history and explains how she co-opts historical authority to create comics and counterfeit historical exhibits. Walking us through her artistic process from the stage of “tadpole” to “strawberry dart frog,” Cass presents highlights of her recent comic book an counterfeit historical exhibits, such as “Folktales of American History” and “The Museum of Failure.”
