New Yorkers Have Named The Vessel-Stairwell-Thingy At Hudson Yards

The developer of Hudson Yards temporarily christened Thomas Heatherwick’s big bronze stack of stairways The Vessel, but — just as 30 St Mary Axe in London is “the Gherkin” and Cloud Gate in Chicago’s Millennium Park is “the Bean” (whether Norman Foster and Anish Kapoor like it or not) — New York’s new selfie-attraction is now “the Shawarma.” – Slate

Anish Kapoor: 'If I was a young Muslim, would I feel angry enough to join Isis? I would at least think about it'

Britain has gone through the looking glass and the artist’s new show follows it into the abyss. He talks about the upsurge in racism, fighting for Shamima Begum – and his clash with France’s presidentAt 7.30 on the morning after Britain voted to leave the European Union, Anish Kapoor left his London flat for an appointment with his analyst.

This watch-face is made from the world’s blackest pigment

The world’s blackest pigment isn’t just some really dark shade of black. It’s so black it literally doesn’t reflect any light. Made from a substance that absorbs 99.9% of the light shone at it, this black is so insanely dark, the only thing scientists can agree is darker than it is a black hole, a cosmic entity so powerful that it ‘eats up light’.The idea of using the world’s blackest pigment on a watch face came to Chronotechna when they realized how difficult it is to read the time underwate...

Snapping point: how the world’s leading architects fell under the Instagram spell

Instagram culture is changing architecture around the world, but is quality being compromised in pursuit of a striking selfie?For a couple of recent summers, gaggles of young Chinese tourists would regularly find themselves lost in an industrial estate on the edge of the A11 dual carriageway in east London, smartphones in hand, in search of the perfect selfie. The faded warehouses of Newham have their own special charm, but the millennials weren’t here to sample the post-industrial wastes of the...

Banksy Shreds His $1.4 Million Painting at Auction, Taking a Tradition of Artists Destroying Art to New Heights

The first time vandals defaced his sculpture, Dirty Corner, at Versailles, artist Anish Kapoor wrote an essay in which he considered his options: Should the paint that has been thrown all over the sculpture be removed? Or should it remain and be part of the work? Does the political violence of the vandalism make Dirty Corner “dirtier”? Does this dirty political act reflect the dirty politics of exclusion, marginalisation, elitism, racism, Islamophobia? The question I ask of myself is: ca...

"Someone fell into artist Anish Kapoor’s bottomless pit sculpture/Or, an accounting of the most absurd art-world accidents in recent history."

My Google alert on "artist" turned up that Fast Company article:On view as part of museum Fundação de Serralves‘s survey exhibition on Kapoor’s work, the eight-foot-deep hole is located inside a free-standing 20-foot concrete cube, which helps create the optical illusion that it’s either an infinite void or just a black circle painted on the ground, depending on your perspective. In reality, the work is actually just a pit covered in black paint.It’s not clear exactly how the man fell in, given ...

The Head Of The Royal Academy Will Step Down After Eleven Blockbuster Years

Sir Charles Saumarez Smith “will leave at the end of the year and said he was departing at a time of ‘obvious strength and success.’ Just over a million people visited the gallery in 2017, and a £56m redevelopment of the site was unveiled earlier this year.” And then there are the blockbuster David Hockney and Anish Kapoor shows – triumphs for the RA.

Should An Artist Like Anish Kapoor Be Invoking His Copyright Just Because He Doesn't Like The NRA's Politics?

"Whether Sir Anish should leverage a law meant to foster and incentivize creativity and debate to instead silence and censor speech is the question before us. Put another way, does US Copyright law grant a copyright owner the sole and exclusive right to control how their copyrighted work is used?"

Cloud Column, a very shiny, 21,000-pound stainless-steel ellipsis by Anish Kapoor that has just been installed on the campus of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

This Paint Can Store and Give Off Light for 12 Hours!

Remember Stuart Semple? He's the British artist who started making and selling that ultra-black paint after artist Anish Kapoor tried to have it all to himself. Now Semple has created that paint's opposite: LIT, which is made out of "the most powerful light emitting pigment on the planet."This stuff is absolutely amazing. You can shine a light source on it, turn light source off, and the paint continues to give off light for up to 12 hours. It can also turn heat into light. And unlike regular gl...
