helsinki school

The Helsinki School "started in the 1990's as an educational model from the University of Art and Design, Helsinki, Finland. It has grown to represent more than forty-five photo and video artists and is now considered to be one of the premier photographic schools in the world." Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery presents seven artists from the school who take seven different approaches in their work.

marina abramovic

I'm happy that the MoMA has allowed Marina Abramovic to stage her exhibit in her terms, with pieces and performances that create strong feelings of uncomfortableness followed by release. By allowing her to truly be present, this retrospective is among the most daring and significant in recent memory.
