minnesota artists ponder: should they stay or should they go?


we twin citians are proud of our arts scene. outsiders who ask us about it are eagerly inundated with proclamations about our greatness: there’s the internationally renowned guthrie theater, the contemporary arts hotshot walker art center, new-works pioneer minnesota opera.ask anyone living outside the twin cities metro area, though, and the answer to a vibrant arts economy invariably falls along the coasts: new york city, los angeles, washington, d.c., san francisco.minneapolis-st. paul? not so much.what do artists living and working here have to say about the matter? they’ve chosen to be here, to vie for creative careers in so-called flyover country. do minnesota artists stay because they’ve tried and failed elsewhere? because they were born and raised here and hesitate to pull up roots?

minnesota vanity plates: one man's trash is another man's #instagrammable treasu


photo by alicia eleras a visual art critic, i spend a lot of time thinking more broadly about visual culture, which includes contemporary art, internet culture (memes, social media, emoji, the nuances of texting, dating apps, etc.) tv/film, architecture and design. rather than considering art to be "high culture" and anything pop/tv/internet as "low culture," i choose to view all these elements of visual culture on a spectrum. contemporary artists today are inevitably influenced by far more than just other art and the art world; to think otherwise would be absurd. many of the artists i keep up with also love to post on the most visually inclined social media platform which is -- wait for it -- instagram, where one can find snippets of an artist's process alongside random cat memes, vanity

new york — for two decades, jerry wolkoff let graffiti artists use his crumbling queens warehouse complex as a canvas for their vibrant works. artists gave the spot the name "5pointz" — a place where all five new york city boroughs come together — but painters traveled from as far as japan and brazil to tag, bomb and burn at what became a graffiti mecca and a tourist destination.but like most graffiti, it didn't last. wolkoff whitewashed the building in 2013 then tore it down to build luxury apartment towers.four years later, some of the artists whose work was destroyed are in court, arguing that even though the building belonged to wolkoff, the art was protected by federal law.a trial that started tuesday at a federal court in brooklyn will determine whether the artists should be compensa

minnesota opera trims the excesses for an emotionally convincing 'la bohème'


minnesota opera’s prior production of puccini’s “la bohème,” first seen in 1996 and revived in 2002 and 2010, was an exercise in hyper-realism, a look at life and love in the latin quarter of paris that emphasized the grit and poverty in the lives of struggling but hopeful young artists. the production, with strong casts most of the time, was a success.the company’s new “bohème,” unveiled at the ordway music theater saturday night as the finale of its 54th season, is similarly realistic, which is basically the only intelligent way to present this opera. heavy directorial concepts don’t work well with “bohème.” the new production, like the old one, takes us to the not-so-glamorous low-rent district of paris. the artists live in a shabby one-room garret with a single twin-size bed that appar

what would be lost if intermedia closes? twin cities artists reflect


the fate of the eclectic, multigenre intermedia arts is up in the air, but artists who helped make the organization what it is already are mourning its potential loss.the south minneapolis center is a crucial hub for twin cities artists, a place where budding spoken-word artist dua saleh, who is queer and muslim, has been able to “exist in all my identities,” said saleh, who has participated in a queer voices series at intermedia specifically focused on queer muslim artists.“there’s no other space like intermedia that is so open and willing to provide artists with things that will nourish their artwork and provide them with things they need to expand upon their identities without feeling scared.”in september, a budget crisis caused intermedia’s board to lay off its entire staff, although s

'identity unknown' is about 7 talented female artists you've probably never hear

critics entirely miss the core illumination of 'song to song'


art has been, is, and will always be political. we are often under a misconception that artists are rebels with the courage to challenge accepted truths. while there are artists like this, probably many, these are not the artists we are usually acquainted with.the rebel artists we cite—such as lin-manuel miranda—are not struggling with popularity. they are famous not because they have challenged the world with new ideas but because they are a voice through which a generation speaks, or, since a generation is never a monolith, a significant portion of a generation. perhaps it is a new and rising voice, but the popularity of the artist is a sign that the scale is tipping or has already tipped.the illusion that miranda, kanye west, or iggy pop are rebels seems to ignore the fact that they hav
