      Rigoletto at Boston Lyric Opera

      Thursday, 27 March 2014 20:18

      I happened to be at the premiere of the new production of Rigoletto by Boston Lyric Opera. Unlike any other Rigoletto I’ve seen, this particular production hits you right in the gut. To find out why, I went behind the scenes to interview the director, costume designer, set designer, and main character. I wanted to […]

      Charlotte Meyer talks work with Alex Schweder

      Charlotte Meyer: The Hotel Rehearsal contains all the elements of your previous work; architectural space, the dynamics of living in the public, revealing habits that sometimes we keep hidden—but in contrast it takes on popular culture in a seamless presentation. You have created a completely transparent hotel room containing little more than a bed/sofa raised […]

      Catching up with the boys of Launch F18

      Launch F18 didn’t just happen of its own accord—things shook out almost as if Tim Donovan and Sam Trioli were made to work together. They came to art from opposite angles. Sam started when he was quite young, finding the fire of inspiration in a failed glazing experiment in preschool. Tim found art much later […]

      Meryl McMaster: In-Between Worlds

      Tuesday, 25 March 2014 09:00

      The claws of a big brown and white animal hugging a tree trunk—that was the first image I saw from Meryl McMaster a few years ago. The figure was completely hidden behind the tree. Was it hiding from some predator? Or was it a predator itself, ready to fly up and attack us in the […]

      Educated Copyist: The Work of Jen Mazza

      Monday, 24 March 2014 09:00

      Jen Mazza’s latest paintings mix trompe l’oeil with the school of appropriation. Adding overlays of heavy punctuation marks and solid geometric shapes, they can convey the harmony of a duet, or the mischievous twist of black bars hiding the face of someone in a compromising position. The muted colors and meticulous details perfectly evoke the […]

      The Journal Art of Barbara Rosenthal

      Friday, 21 March 2014 20:48

      This month, the Center for Book Arts is displaying 12 of the 72 volumes of Journals I’ve kept since age 11 in 1959, along with my 1986 book Homo Futurus and the Homo Futurus wall work as part of “Silence Unbound” curated by Heather Powell. The Journals had been something I kept parallel to my […]

      Robert Henry Contemporary: Connecting the Dots

      Robert Walden and Henry Chung of Robert Henry Contemporary are a making a life in the art world work for them. The gallery they run together is a collaborative project, so it comes with the territory.  As Robert points out, “there is always a give and take…just like anything else in life.” While the cooperative […]

      NY Arts Picks: Chelsea Gallery Shows to See Alone

      Wednesday, 19 March 2014 18:46

      Chelsea gallery hopping is pretty fun most of the time, and often it’s a good idea to bring a friend along for company. Then there are some times when that other person is more of a distraction than an ally. Whether it’s because they have a different opinion of the work than you do, that […]

      Space Debris Catalog: The Dry Salvages by Elisabetta Benassi

      Wednesday, 19 March 2014 09:00

      Elisabetta Benassi’s work The Dry Salvages is an impressively large orange book, which at first glance appears to be a specific resource, packed with a decidedly organized volume of information. A little further digging and an inspection of the introduction page reveals the fact that it is actually a collection of 10,000 entries, each specific […]

      Body Up: Five Figurative Shows To Put Eyes On

      Saturday, 15 March 2014 09:00

      Abstraction purists love to wail and moan when a show focuses mainly on the human body. Especially in New York, what could be worse than being forced to see a person everywhere you look? Most of us spend our entire daily commute with our eyes glued to the ceiling, our phone, or the floor, pretending […]
