Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi, who uses the nearly 8,000-square-foot open-air space (the rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art) as his canvas, depicts his emotional response to violence occurring in Pakistan and across the globe, by working areas with blood-like spilled and splattered red acrylic paint into patterns of lush ornamental leaves that evoke the luxuriant walled gardens that are ubiquitous in miniatures of the Mughal court and also echo the foliage of Central Park surrounding the Roof Garden. Qureshi is the first artist to create a work that is be painted directly onto the roof’s surface of the museum, encouraging visitors to walk on it as they view it.

Jordan Kantor, Untitled (The Guitar Player), 2013-14. Oil on canvas.
Jordan Kantor’s exhibition at Churner and Churner is a critic’s pick on Artforum:

 Kantor’s exhibition refuses any immediate classification: If a conceptual thread unifies the images on display, its filament appears productively tangled between multiple works.

The exhibition is on view through April 12.

Marcelo Cidade is the current Artist in Residence at Kadist San Francisco. We are very excited for his upcoming talk at SFAI this Friday, where he will speak about his current projects. The talk begins at 4:30pm. 

Art21 has just posted this video featuring Gabriel Orozco speaking about his project Spanish Lessons at Marian Goodman Gallery in 2013. The project staged a temporary classroom in the gallery, 

Unsatisfied with the relegation of Spanish to “street talk” in the United States, Orozco used art and literature to teach the language to gallery goers. “It’s very common to hear people quoting Borges, but not many people have really read Borges in Spanish,” he says. “Meaning changes when you translate.”
