Cura, an Italian based contemporary art magazine, recently did a feature on the Biennial in their Winter 2011 issue, showcasing Alan Masey’s Line Composition Series (2010. Mixed materials. 10 x 6 cm.), an image of Robert Smith-Shabazz holding his work during Harrell’s visit to Haverford, and two photographs by Jorge Figueroa, including this untitled black & white silver gelatin print from 2000.

Alan Massey’s Line Composition Series popped up again in Flash Art’s January/February 2011 issue which included Alexander Ferrando’s interview with Harrell and Jens. (see below for an image of Line Composition Series)

Art Papers‘ January/February 2011 issue featured an article by Katherine Bovee on the Biennial, including photographs of the installation in Portland. Bovee noted that Haverford local artist Laura Deutch’s Messages in Motion and Jorge Figueroa’s photography were among “the richest work in the exhibition.”

And a special congratulations to Jorge Figueroa, whose work has been chosen to be featured in the People’s Gallery in San Francisco, and to Haverford area artists Cymantha  Diaz Liakos and Robert Smith-Shabazz who will have special appearances at the People’s Gallery!

You’re officially informed about all the Biennial buzz for the moment, and goodness what a buzz it is!

P.S. Be on the lookout for an upcoming post about an upcoming talk about the Biennial that will be hosted by iCI in Chicago as well as a post on Alan Massey’s Line Composition Series!

We met Jorge through Raíces Culturales Latinoamericanas. They had a number of his photographs on display and, upon seeing them, we knew we had to get in touch with him. Jorge wound up bringing his work to the open call in Philadelphia. Speaking about his work, Jorge explained, “I document visual moments of humanity, particularly of people whose lives would otherwise be bypassed by art and history. I study people.” The resulting photos are intimate scenes of everyday life made timeless by Jorge’s black and white images.
