B/D’s Best of 2010- Gao Brothers

Gao Brothers

Beijing based fraternal pair Gao Brothers have been collaborating on nstallation, performance, sculpture, photography works and writing now for three decades and shocking museums around the world with their guerrilla tactic art, one such featuring an apologetic Chairman Mao on his knees with a detachable head. Exhibitions by the Gao brothers, whose work the authorities find politically challenging, have been shut down in the past, and their studio has been raided. So they keep the head of Mao hidden in a separate location — reuniting it with its body only on special occasions to show friends and colleagues. Normally, the body of the statue remains headless, unidentifiable and nonthreatening.

B/D Best of 2010 – Lynn Palewicz’s Skin Drawings

LynnPalewicz

Lynn Palewicz has taken doodling on her hands to a whole new level. Her drawings, that fuse black pen body drawings with up-close photography, teeter on the edge between illusion and reality, abstraction and figuration. These dizzying images will definitely make you do a double-take.

Bobby Neel Adams Halfsies and Wholes

Most of Bobby Neel Adams‘s whole shpiel is taking two seperate images and composing them as if they were one.  Old and young, man and woman, comparing and contrasting two different relationships and how they work together.

Nadav Kander Photography

Nadav Kander has some really great portrait photography of selected celebrities and political figures.  I especially like his series ” Obama’s People” just because of how awkward government employees tend to be when photographed.
