Rosemary Heather on why Ryan Trecartin makes art cool again

03.12.10
Any Ever, Ryan Trecartin The third time I visited Ryan Trecartin’s show of video installations, Any Ever in Toronto, it was near the end of the exhibition. A small army of people moved from room to room, notebooks in hand, recording their thoughts. Like few other art events I can think of, the show contained within it the seeds of a conversation. See Ryan Trecartin’s work and ...

Candice Breitz talks to Rosemary Heather

19.06.10
When forgotten, pop stars become like wallpaper in our daily lives. Once they become ensconced as icons, they take on an ulterior function. Probably only students listen to Bob Marley these days, but this doesn’t stop me from singing one of his songs, involuntarily, when walking down the street.
