Enrico Isamu Ōyama: TRANSIT Magazine Photo Essay "Across the System"


Enrico Isamu Ōyama’s photo essay titled “Across the System” was featured in TRANSIT magazine’s No. 41 Autumn 2018 edition.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The 15-page spread written and directed by Ōyama covers multiple topics ranging from what prompted the visual artist to delve into aerosol writing to current street artist’s who are have crossed over in the contemporary art scene. The consistent connection between these striking stories is the connection to New York City: the epicenter of street art and this subversive art culture.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

While the Brooklyn-based Japanese-Italian artist does not personally identify as a street writer, per say, Ōyama profoundly understands its culture, unique vocabulary, and signature set of aesthetics. Within the context of contemporary art, the article notes Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring as street art pioneers during the 1970s-80s when such works—spreading across subways and building walls—were considered random vandalism.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Alongside himself, Ōyama also introduces four current New York artists who have also revolutionized street art: COCO144, John Ahearn, James Clar and SWOON. As conveyed in the photo essay’s title, these artists have traversed across the creative confines of what defines street art and what is acceptable in public spaces, galleries, and museums.

Rafaël Rozendaal: Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art, 1965-2018 (Whitney Museum of American Art)


From September 28, 2018-April 14, 2019, Rafaël Rozendaal is participating in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s exhibition titled Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art, 1965-2018.

 

The group exhibition, as described in the press release, “establishes connections between works of art based on instructions, spanning over fifty years of conceptual, video, and computational art.” There, Rozendaal’s “Abstract Browsing 17 04 05 (Google)” is featured in the exhibition’s section titled “Rule, Instruction, Algorithm: Ideas as Form.” This woven work has also been acquired by the Whitney collection.

 

Drawing on their collection, Programmed looks back at predecessors of computational art and shows how the ideas addressed in those earlier works have evolved in contemporary artistic practices.
