“Soul of Black Folks”
Amoako Boafo


Working primarily in portraiture, Boafo uses vibrant color and textured finger painting to tell stories of Black subjectivity, Black joy, and the Black gaze. Inspired in part by W.E.B. Du Bois’s seminal 1903 work, The Souls of Black Folk, the exhibition explores the concept of “double consciousness,” in which Black people must navigate their self-identity through the gaze of others. Boafo’s powerful and engaging figures—created between 2016 and 2022 and influenced by modern variables including the COVID-19 pandemic, the media’s commodification of Black bodies, and continued systemic oppression—are raw, intimate, and energetic as they come alive via carefully sculpted layers of paint. Together, Boafo’s portraits form a vivid assemblage of Black life around the world.

The exhibition is curated by

Heri Dono, .official a Yogyakarta-based contemporary artist and one of the most celebrated figures in the Indonesian art world. We had the pleasure and honor of visiting Studio Kalahan – his private studio and “cultural pocket”, providing an open space for young art professionals.

We were given a guided tour of the space, from paintings to installations created in fusion of traditional and modern forms. A core visual inspiration of his work is derived from his experiments with wayang, a deeply rooted traditional form of Javanese theater play, with puppets made out of leather, often water buffalo hide. 

Just like wayang performances, Dono’s works bring together “visual arts, mantra, sound, storytelling, social criticism, humor, and the mythological promotion of a philosophy of life” in his commentary of modernization, socio-political issues, and environmental destruction. Dono skillfully employs silliness and a lighthearted nature in exposing the harsh realities of these difficult subjects, crafting the installation alone (with the help of his electrician for the lights and sound), using repurposed materials, from found objects to castings of his own face. A big thank you to Heri Dono, Mba Ayu, and Mba Dinda for giving us a walk through of such vibrant and thought-provoking art (and Mba Ayu’s amazing documentation of his archive)! 💡

Another day, another studio visit! Sumatran-born, Yogyakarta-based, contemporary Indonesian artist Indra Dodi brings together a playful, spontaneous, and colorful visual style with a deeply insightful, positive, and exploratory philosophy of life.

We were thrilled to have had the opportunity of visiting his home studio and to see a closer look at his works, a beautiful cluster of happy scenes of families, friends, and lovers, in homey natural sceneries, dotted with words and onomatopoeia, all in his stream of consciousness and what he calls a never-ending journey in creative experimentation. The raw, serene works, serve as an encapsulation of his ridiculously shocking life story (our mouths were entirely agape), and even his home studio, designed with ceilings to cool down the heat, speckled with collaborated artworks with his child, and decorated with artworks by friends he strives to uplift, captures his attention detail and passionate soul.

“I look at things from a different side of view or perspective. Each of my paintings is a message of rebelliousness. My painting is a way of speaking the reality, different from ordinary, or from my own perspective. Subjects of my works are all things around my everyday life: environment, village, stone, mountain, river, rain, cloud, party, love, drunk, women, child, land, spoken, alphabet, etc. We need to learn to close our eyes, and return to our childlike mentality to find the source of artistic creativity, which is our inner self-expression.”

And for a very quick museum visit at the end of our Yogyakarta trip (and right before closing time!) is the widely celebrated Indonesian contemporary artistic figure, and one of the most significant artists of the 20th Century Southeast Asian Art – Affandi.

Known for his unconventional, eccentric, emotional imagery and striking subject matter, Affandi gained recognition through his raw and passionate depictions of daily life, magnifying and exposing Indonesia’s turbulent society as opposed to the often “idealized, imaginary, Indonesia”.

The Affandi Museum was also his studio and home – which was partly constructed and designed on his own, and partly gifted by the former president Soeharto. Just like his works, the space is idiosyncratic and beautifully chaotic – with a banana leaf shaped roof, sculptures of n**e Affandi (by his daughter Kartika), and incredible tree root carvings. Affandi is buried alongside his wife by the entrances of the buildings, as he’s always wished, forever surrounded by his family and his works.

Jazz Chong () is the founding owner of , and a dear friend. Ode To Art represents an international spectrum of artists with diverse collections of paintings, sculptures, photography, and installation art.

From an interview by .singapore on advice for young artists — “Do not rush the process and get impatient. The definition of success is different for everyone and comes at a different time for everyone so one must persevere. It is important to look forward to the future, instead of focusing on the now. An artist’s life journey is important as it will be reflected in their art so focus on the process, and the rest will follow through.”

About yesterday 🎡 lovely times at .sg VIP Preview with .la.

Congratulations to Richard for the article about Singapore’s evolving art market — our favorite part quoted below.

Art buyers and collectors, unable to fly to international art fairs while the pandemic raged, started looking more deeply at local artists, especially in Vietnam and Thailand, says Richard Koh.

“Covid, the war [in Ukraine], geopolitical tensions between the US and China . . . under the facade there is a sense now that local is better,” he says. “Younger buyers in the region are coming in. The buying pattern is different. The visual language appreciation is different. The idea of collecting is different. They are collecting their time. Many of these buyers are from a social media generation, drawn to visual work that is fast, colourful and even virtual.”

Cornelia Parker is one of Britain's best loved and most acclaimed contemporary artists. Always driven by curiosity, she reconfigures domestic objects to question our relationship with the world. Using transformation, playfulness and storytelling, she engages with important issues of our time, be it violence, ecology or human rights.

The exhibition will bring together such iconic suspended works as Thirty Pieces of Silver 1988–9 and Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View 1991; the immersive War Room 2015 and Magna Carta 2015, her monumental collective embroidery, as well as her films and a wealth of her innovative drawings, prints and photographs. Some works will spill out beyond the confines of the exhibition and infiltrate the permanent collection, in dialogue with the historical works they reference.

Animal Secrets comprises 10 paintings and 12 works on paper that further develop series of portraiture featuring mysterious and mythical creatures. The resulting gallery of enchanted characters embodies the artist’s meticulously-realized signature blend of archetype, kitsch, and narrative mysticism. Animal Secrets is conceived alongside the artist’s most recent exhibition in Tokyo, Yakalina 9.

07/05/2022

Cheung’s first solo at Almine Rech takes as its historical marker, the Second O***m War, which lasted from 1856-1860. It consists of a number of new paintings and sculptures which further explores his interest in understanding the development of Modern China and continues his interests in revealing these lesser known histories of China and its invasion by the West. The heaven in the title refers to the city of Tianjian, which is translated as Heaven’s boundary or Ford and was the location where the Treaty of Tianjian was signed signalling the end of the Second O***m War.

The show is a study of confluences, a look at an intertwined history between two largely contrasting cultures, religions and philosophies at a historical juncture of huge acceleration on one side, charging headlong into Modernism. Cheung’s paintings are a multi-layered account of human activity and history and his interest stems from his upbringing as a British born Chinese and his desire to understand his own roots. His work speaks to a wide range of influences, from romanticists such as Caspar David Friedrich to sculptures influenced by Chinese Window designs. However, Cheung’s paintings are anything but polite, the acidic colour palettes (somewhat reminiscent of the swirling pyrotechnical allegories of the Victorian painter John Martin) suggest chemical interactions of a world ravaged by human industry, perhaps even on the brink of anthropogenic chaos or the aftermath of a nuclear war.

A procession is part and parcel of the cycle of life; people gather and move together to celebrate, worship, protest, mourn, escape or even to better themselves. This is the heart of Hew Locke’s ambitious new project, The Procession.

The Procession invites visitors to ‘reflect on the cycles of history, and the ebb and flow of cultures, people and finance and power.’ Tate Britain’s founder was art lover and sugar refining magnate Henry Tate. In the installation Locke says he ‘makes links with the historical after-effects of the sugar business, almost drawing out of the walls of the building,’ also revisiting his artistic journey so far, including for example work with statues, share certificates, cardboard, rising sea levels, Carnival and the military.

07/04/2022

“[Tom] Wesselmann repeatedly referenced Matisse in the Great American N**e series, launched in 1961 – eventually creating one hundred works, spanning almost ten years. In the 1980s Wesselmann launched a series of laser-cut, painted metal drawings, several of which were based on one of his favorite models, Monica Serra. Wesselmann also created a series of cut-out aluminum still lifes adapting Matisse’s motifs in the 80s, amplifying this theme in the 1990s in such homages to Matisse and his contemporaries as Still Life with Matisse and Johns (3D)of 1993. Wesselmann saw the landmark 1992 Matisse retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art which was an “overwhelming” experience for him.”

– a vibrant nineteenth-century community of predominantly Black landowners and tenants – flourished in an area just west of , in what is now Central Park, By the 1850s, the village comprised some fifty homes, three churches, multiple cemeteries, a school, and many gardens. It represented both an escape from the crowded and dangerous confines of lower Manhattan and a site of opportunity, ownership, freedom, and prosperity. In 1857, to make way for the park, the city used eminent domain to seize Seneca Village land, displacing its residents and leaving only the barest traces of the community behind.
🕯
This house has roots in the homes of Seneca Village, of which only a fragmented history remains. Like other period rooms throughout the Museum, this installation is a fabrication of a domestic space that assembles furnishings to create an illusion of authenticity. Unlike these other spaces, this room rejects the notion of one historical period and embraces the African and African diasporic belief that the past, present, and future are interconnected and that informed speculation may uncover many possibilities. Powered by Afrofuturism-atransdisciplinary creative mode that centers Black imagination, excellence, and self-determination-this construction is only one proposition for what might have been had Seneca Village been allowed to thrive into the present and beyond. In keeping with the collaborative spirit of Afrofuturism, The Met's curatorial team worked with lead curator Hannah Beachler, who envisioned and designed this space with consulting curator Michelle Commander. Since 2019, the group has engaged numerous creative and intellectual partners to infuse the installation with additional ideas and perspectives. Here, at a vital intersection at the heart of the Museum, this project opens a space for yet more histories to be told that look toward a more resilient future.

Charles Ray 🍐 at 🥑

For over five decades, Charles Ray (born Chicago, 1953) has experimented with a wide range of methods, including performance, photography, and sculpture, the medium for which he is recognized today. In the process, he has mined the tradition of Western art, mobilized the power of materials, and pioneered major advances in sculptural production, combining the analogue and the digital. Ray's intriguing and occasionally bracing work addresses not only art history, popular culture, and mass media but also identity, mortality, race, and gender in sometimes provocative, often irreverent ways. Throughout, he has remained deeply invested in exploring the fundamental relationships between form and space, figure and ground.
