This issue of ARTnews has a section called "Over 30/Under 30" - established artists choose younger figures whose work interests, intrigues, or provokes them. Let's see if these artists provoke us.

The mag also has a nice story on Beverly McIver who's show I was able to catch in ny the last time I was there. All of the clown paintings are taken from pictures of her dressed in clown costume. While growing up, beverly joined "clown-club" in a mostly white high school - while in costume beverly recalls, " I could forget that I was poor and black and could have a larger positive reception than when I was just myself". (artnews) She now lives in boston after moving from arizona (former teacher at arizona state) and is working on a new series documenting her mother's passing, while taking care of her older mentally challenged sister. Sounds like some emotionally charged paintings coming.

i've seen this list every year for the last 20 years, and none of the young artists are ever heard from again.

The links on some of the images are wrong.

Elin Hansdottir. Kamrooz Aram. Eduardo Navarro. Nothing too stunning though. I'll have to look at ARTnews to find who these older artists are.

yeah, I know the links if you click on image are wrong but the name links are correct. I had some mystery problems in blogger.

why is it that almost all of the black artists either on this blog or in the art scene in general are those that utilize race and representation exclusively as subject matter? What about the majority that are post modern abstract, or process oriented?
