Tamborine presents Kenneth Tam’s recent work dealing with rituals of masculinity and their capacity to both reinforce and disrupt conventional norms. Rites of passage initiate young men into social codes of adulthood, giving them the chance to test out their mature selves and rehearse normative patterns of behavior. But they also open a space of vulnerability

As right-wing movements take hold across the globe—from the US to Brazil to Europe—liberal progressives are confronted with an existential crisis. Feeling betrayed and disillusioned with the promises of the institutional Left, they must search for new forms of resistance to cultural conservatism, xenophobia, and destructive capitalist ideologies that are enacting real violence upon already

Passing for Beauty: Does an exhibition need to look political to be political? It begins with joy. Or, more precisely, “museum joy.” This is the aim that curator Ingrid Schaffner has articulated for the 57th Edition of the Carnegie International. It is emblazoned on the requisite tote bag and highlighted in The Guide, the first

Éste es el objetivo que la curadora Ingrid Schaffner ha articulado para la 57º edición de Carnegie International.

Family is often the first institution we encounter: through it, we learn to give and receive love—conditioning how we will transact affection in every other intimate and institutional relationship. Family is also often the site of formative trauma, which similarly will manifest in how we treat ourselves and others for the rest of our lives.
