An awkward, lifeless shrine – the Diana statue is a spiritless hunk of nonsense | Jonathan Jones

The only provocative thing about Ian Rank-Broadley’s characterless sculpture is how shamelessly it plays up to mawkish Diana worshipIan Rank-Broadley’s statue of Diana, commissioned by her sons, was kept secret until its unveiling as if it might be wildly provocative. Looking through the artist’s previous oeuvre, I noticed he has a taste for the nude and created a statue for the late Felix Dennis called Lord Rochester, His Whore and a Monkey. That raised the fascinating prospect of a naked Diana...

Curious Cribs: Mushroom House Bursts on Rental Market

A rare opportunity has arisen for those wishing to live among the truffles — or at least in eye-catching circumstances. The regionally famous James Johnson-designed Mushroom House, in Perinton, N.Y., near Rochester, is seeking a fancifully minded tenant willing to pony up $5,500 a month. Though the by-any-standard idiosyncratic home was modeled after a sprig […]

Stream this powerful theatre production about class and motherhood right now

Theatre companies have been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus quarantine. While the communal accessibility of theatre is a large part of the artform's pedigree and appeal, professional productions are often tight for money, even in the best of times. With limited runs, and plenty of hands-on-deck required on a nightly basis, many professional theatres in America rely heavily on donations — and right now, those are drying up, too. My wife, Bevin O'Gara, is the Producing Artistic Director f...

Death and the dyslexic furniture maker.

I'm reading 2 obituaries in the NYT this morning. The 2 men — both in the furniture business — are very different, but both were dyslexic.1."Wendell Castle, the whimsical designer who coaxed wood into weird, mind-bending shapes that blurred the boundary between serviceable furniture and fine art, died on Jan. 20 at his home in Scottsville, N.Y., near Rochester. He was 85." His sinuous, biomorphic chairs, tables, desks, pianos, clocks and vanities, which resembled giant teeth, a human tongue, ele...

Wendell Castle, Inimitable Furniture Designer, Builder, Educator and Craftsman, Passes Away

On Saturday Wendell Castle, furniture designer/builder, educator and former instructor at R.I.T.'s School of American Craftsmen, passed away at the age of 85. Castle was a true pioneer who bridged the gap between furniture design and art. A native of Kansas, Castle attended the University of Kansas and earned a B.F.A. in Industrial Design in 1958 and an M.F.A. in Sculpture in 1961, then began producing fantastical pieces of furniture that refused to hew to any previous movemen...

Replaying Japan 2017: 5th International Japan Game Studies Conference

I should have shared this much soon, as the deadline for submitting abstracts is just around the corner on February 1, but it’s not too late. Replaying Japan 2017: 5th International Japan Game Studies Conference looks like quite the intriguing gathering, taking place August 21-23 at the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester. There were certainly some interesting talks at last year’s conference, and I wish the material was available online.

Why a charcoal of police in Ferguson is the most important artwork of 2014

Robert Longo’s powerful drawing of police holding back protesters in Ferguson is a vital record of the resurgence of racism and a history painting for our time2014 has produced horrific politics. Racism has returned, that hydra-headed idiot, everywhere from Missouri to Rochester, where a Ukip candidate won a byelection after openly speculating about repatriating Europeans. It is not much by way of compensation to say the year also produced a mighty piece of political art. But it did. is a 10-ft...
