Aldo Castillo Interview

The Windy City Times recently talked with Aldo Castillo, Associate Director of the Miami International Art Fair, which happens January 13-17, 2011, about closing the award-winning gallery bearing his nameAand now identifying with a larger world. Below is an excerpt from the interview:

The art fair you’re becoming director of takes place in January?

Yes, Jan. 13-17. That’s the one I’m directing, but I’m helping, shaping the fair so it becomes competitive. Because the gallery behavior has totally changed-you don’t see that many customers walking by into galleries anymore. Galleries are facing new challenges and they have nothing to do with the economy, they have to do with technology. Galleries now depend on their websites for people to know where they are or what they do. Many people who like art like to go to art fairs because it’s like a little museum coming to you for three days or four days. When it comes to the business of people looking at art, art fairs are the prime today the main venue for selling art.

Why did you decide to keep your gallery here online?

Because I am considered one of the main voices for Latin American art. I have studied the movements in Latin American art, what sells, what doesn’t sell, the prices, the authenticity of the work, so I am a key person that is knowledgeable about that. When I decided to close the gallery, all these people advised me not to do it-to keep the name alive. It’s better to keep what I have done open.>

Jason Krugman : Electric Zoo Art Installation

Living Objects in Brooklyn's McCarren Park - December 2009

Jason Krugman is displaying his Living Objects series this weekend in NYC at the Electric Zoo Festival, stop by!

RANDALL'S ISLAND, NY September 4th and 5th, 2010 - Jason Krugman will present a large-scale illuminated sculptural installation as the art centerpiece at this year's Electric Zoo music festival. Currently in its second year, the 2-day festival is expected to draw upwards of 40,000 fans with its 70+ musical acts, including headliners The Chemical Brothers and Armin Van Buuren.

Krugman's installation will be the most recent incarnation of his ongoing "Living Objects" series, based around the creation and placement of illuminated humanoid sculptures. The sculptures are made largely from recycled shrink-wrap, wire and LED strands. With his Living Objects, Krugman strikes a balance between authentic human beings, and artificial forms, comprised of industrial plastic and refuse. In a combination of Parks-Department-approved and guerilla installations, Krugman has placed his sculptures in trees, on top of buildings, and in public parks.

"‘Living Objects’ [are] simultaneously impressive and scrappy: they're the kind of pieces you appreciate and engage with almost immediately, due to their human- like form as well as their construction." JAMES YEH - GREENPOINT GAZETTE

Takafumi YAGI : "vermilion" Showcase

Takafumi YAGI : "vermilion" is showing at the Megumi Ogita Gallery (5-4-14- 4F Ginza, Chuo-Ku, Tokyo)A10 -26 of June 2010. If you’re in Tokyo let us know how it is!

Takafumi YAGI was born in 1982 and now studies MA Sculpture Course at Musashino Art University. In the undergraduate's end year show, he presented his first sculpture made of color pencils "sky blue" that strongly impressed the visitors with its fresh and kaleidoscopic expression.AThe dozens of color pencils are fixed with resin and become just like a tree trunk so that YAGI is able to apply wood carving techniques on it. By sculpting the material, the color pencil cores appear and create various patterns according to the cuts.AFor the first solo exhibition "vermilion", YAGI challenges to make a chandelier that emits bright and warm textures. Showcase promises that "vermilion" would offer you an unique experience of the floods of colors and forms.
