Happenings: “At the Window,” “Extreme Measures,” and Unearthing Edvard Munch

This week, Artsy focuses on the Getty Center’s “At the Window: The Photographer's View,” and considers the history of the window in photography, as a frame, subject, and source of inspiration. Renowned voyeurs include William Henry Fox Talbot, Eugène Atget, Uta Barth, and Yuki Onodera.

Elsewhere on the walls, Cary Leibowitz (a.k.a. Candyass) vents her frustration through “(paintings and belt buckles)” at Invisible-Exports, and, starting Wednesday, Chris Burden exhibits “Extreme Measures” throughout the entirety of the New Museum.

In the news last week, archaeologists unearth palette knives, paint, and more at the Norway home of Edvard Munch (ARTnews), and sculptor Garth Evans debuted his first book, Garth Evans Sculpture: Beneath the Skin (artcritical).

And, in case you missed it, Cultured Magazine talked to Shamim Momin, director of LAND, about the L.A. scene, Art21 shared a conversation with Bruce Nauman about his formative teachers, plus Artsy’s Christine Kuan explored the genius of Hokusai. And remember: you can download our new iPhone App to explore Hokusai and thousands of artists, all at your fingertips.
