When it comes to rejection, there are two ways of dealing with it: one way is to continue looking for validation by changing yourself according to some desirable model; the other way requires digging deeper in search for oneself regardless of a supposed ideal. In her work, Arlene Rush draws from her personal experiences, offering the viewer her own approach to self-preservation in the face of rejection. How one can start believing in oneself and keep moving forward, regardless of non-recognition and misperception? In this interview, Arlene Rush talks to Artdependence Magazine about overcoming the negative.
Contemporary street artists are not concerned with impressing members of the Academy or approved authorities but rather in revoking many social conventions about art. Contemporary street artists produce their works believing that art does not belong only in museums but also on the streets with the people. That is why many of them, such as Banksy, operate under pseudonyms, because vandalizing public property is a crime.
In just a matter of days, Cosmoscow art fair will take off once again in the Russian capital. Artdependence Magazine had a chance to ask several of the fair’s participants to share their expectations for the upcoming event, and to offer readers a sneak peek preview of what’s to come. Four gallerists talked with us about their local art scenes, the current trends they observe in contemporary art, and how they survive and succeed in the current art market.
This year, the fourth edition of Cosmoscow is taking place from the 9th to the 11th of September in Moscow’s Gostiny Dvor. Russia’s only international arts fair counts with the participation of 40 national and foreign galleries, showing carefully selected work by more than 100 contemporary artists.
