Pleasure Dispels Male Fantasies of Porn

Pleasure Dispels Male Fantasies of Porn

For Nicholas Roeg’s adaptation of Insignificance, British artist David Hockney was commissioned to create a new portrait of Marilyn Monroe. Using collage and inspired by Monroe’s Playboy cover, he made an image of Teresa Russell as Monroe, lying on a wrinkled pink sheet. She looks at us and away from us, her body contorting in different directions. Cubist and postmodern in construction, it captures not only the fracturing impact of fame on the body, but also the paradoxical need for a sex symbol to be wanted and unwanted — willing and unwilling. Moving from Monroe’s first Playboy cover to...

Photography’s Impossible Attempt at Freezing Time

Photography’s Impossible Attempt at Freezing Time

SAN FRANCISCO — In order to experience the passage of time, we must freeze it in place. This is the subtle paradox at the heart of Considered Interactions, a group show of black-and-white photography at Casemore Kirkeby in San Francisco. The five artists included employ a range of tactics to activate space and time within the static image as a means of interrogating the medium’s ability to collapse both into a singular, suspended moment. Detail of John Divola, “ENSO: 36 Right-handed Gestures” (2018), AZO Gelatin silver contact prints mounted on archival mat board paper, 8 x 10 inches...
