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!

Robert Smith Shabazz – During our visit with Raíces Culturales Latinoamericanas, Melissa Yarborough, the Program Manager told us about Robert Smith-Shabazz’s Wood & Music Lab down the street. We made a stop on our way to the next site. Robert is a jazz musician and artist. He makes painted wood-carvings of photographs and magazine clips. He showed us around his studio and performed a few pieces with Melissa from Raíces. We even joined in on the jam session! Here he is with his carving of the Obamas.
