      Sunday, 21 May 2017 14:38

      The oeuvre of the prominent artist Andres Serrano (New York, 1950) is both provocative and fascinating. In terms of scale, composition and subject matter his works of art show strong similarities to the work of the Old Masters, but unlike these old paintings Serrano’s work confronts us powerfully and directly with contemporary reality. Serrano has a deep interest […]

    • Vito Acconci

      Friday, 28 April 2017 18:41

      I knew Vito in the late sixties and participated together in Street Works. It was solitude, obsession and fear to push the boundaries and stay away from labels and categories where you were defined and pigeon hold.
