Demystifying Sol LeWitt.

Sol Lewitt’s visual art shows a geometric complexity built on dynamic expansions. Lewitt is also a highly respected art theorist whose statements on conceptual art establish him as one of the leading intellectual lights of that movement. Unfortunately Sol Lewitt’s writing makes no sense at all...

Art Against Racism and other catastrophes.

We are told that artists should "start an uncomfortable conversation with society". We should ask instead why some people like to make others uncomfortable: do we want such people to set the cultural agenda?

The New Art Examiner, an independent magazine of art and cultural criticism, was founded in Chicago in 1973. The magazine is not only a significant part of the history of art and criticism in Chicago, it made important contributions to the larger history of art and cultural criticism in the United States by promising—and delivering—an often sharp-edged critique.

A new voice in art criticism, Miklos Legrady is a visual artist, scholar, anti-hero and protagonist who’s expecting trouble. He steps out of the art world’s blind spot, deconstructing myths and fictions. Emerging as a hybrid between technical wizard, ad buster, and poli-sci commentator, Legrady moves through a world of political, social, and cultural intrigue, trends, and events; like the Energizer Bunny, Legrady just keeps on going and going.

Legrady is the Toronto Editor of Chicago’s New Art Examiner
