Over the last decade, Iraq’s rich history of art has been sidelined and overshadowed by the focus on politics, war and destruction. However, with powerful figureheads such as Zaha Hadid and Nada Shabout championing the art from their native country, Iraq is slowly regaining its prime position in the international art scene, further proving that with time, the artistic discussion of a country can be replaced by the politics and economic issues.

Steer a steady ship, 7 hour performance, Lottie Consalvo

Steer a steady ship was a performance piece which involved the artist undergoing seven hours of Chinese water torture in memory of a period of anxiety that the artist suffered twelve months ago. Lying on a bed above which was suspended a boat suspended in mid-air dripping black liquid on her forehead, Consalvo bravely revived the fear, torture, loneliness and despair of the anxiety that kept her awake at night.

13 Most Wanted Men: Andy Warhol and the 1964 World’s Fair

Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens, NY

The exhibition takes Warhol’s 13 Most Wanted Men as its single subject, addressing its creation and destruction and placing it in its artistic and social context by combining art, documentation, and archival material. 50 years have passed since an up-and-coming Pop provocateur named Andy Warhol sparked a minor scandal at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. As part of a prominent set of public commissions for the Philip Johnson-designed New York State Pavilion’s exterior, Warhol chose to enlarge mug shots from a NYPD booklet featuring the 13 most wanted criminals of 1962. Forming a chessboard of front and profile views, 13 Most Wanted Men was installed by April 15, 1964, and painted over by Fair officials’ direction with silver paint a few days later.

“The main idea is to show a new way of “infographic” drawings. Because everything we see is biological, mathematical or geological information. It can also be cultural patterns or any other thing. Complexity Graphics works are based on mathematical simplicity and harmony. I would describe them as infographic abstracts. This mathematical style helps me to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and meditative worlds. That’s why I admire by math, because it’s everywhere and nowhere.” -Tatiana Plakhova, Moscow, Russia
