      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 […]

      Jus Juchtmans at Margaret Thatcher Projects

      Thursday, 13 March 2014 09:00

      Upon first glance, “Color Virus,” the third solo exhibition of Belgian artist Jus Juchtmans currently up at Margaret Thatcher Projects, seems to speak to or qualify itself within the monochrome painting movement. Each of Juchtmans’ pieces is a kind of meditation on a color: one blue, another red, another yellow, another white. As such, the […]

      Best March Art Fair of 2014: The Independent

      Monday, 10 March 2014 09:00

      Seemingly everyone’s favorite art fair, at least according to the artists I talk to each year, The Independent has put on another strong showing in 2014. Set in the old Dia Chelsea space as usual, the more open, airy floor plan makes for easy digestion of the largely varied media of work on display. Galleries […]

      Notes From ARCO Madrid

      Monday, 10 March 2014 02:06

      ARCO, the strange annual mirage of the Madrid artworld, is over. I watched it like anyone else, from the outside, as a spectator among thousands. That usually works. I don’t need to schmooze. Besides, like Frank always says, “What you see is what you get.” But this time I have to say ARCO 2014 was […]

      Shoulda Coulda Gone to Volta

      Friday, 7 March 2014 21:36

      Many art fairs do their best to put in a classy air. In my opinion, this should also involve making the viewing experience as direct and digestible as possible. Volta is the only fair that attempts to do this in limiting the number of artists each gallery is expected to hang in their given booth. […]

      Two Show Sandwich: Gelitin and Uklański

      Friday, 7 March 2014 09:00

      The first thing you come upon walking through the warehouse-like entrance of Massimo de Carlo Gallery, is a white panel wall that it appears a kid just scribbled some letters on. You might feel a bit confused, but you actually just need to look closer. At second glance, you can actually catch the titles of […]

      Get Loose With Us at the Spring/Break Art Show

      Wednesday, 5 March 2014 16:07

      The Spring/Break Art Show is the surly new kid on the block and everyone involved could not be more excited. Now in its third year, this rough little gem of a fair is organized by Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori in what was once an old school house in NoLita. This is in fact the […]

      Painting and Contemplation with Pema Rinzin

      Tuesday, 4 March 2014 15:53

      Joshua Liner Gallery houses a diverse group of established and emerging artists, but as a faction they present a united front against creative tedium. Ai Yamaguchi’s celluloid expressions and frail lines depict lives of young prostitutes. Evan Hecox portrays urban environments through amplification and select graphic elements. Julie Opperman’s dissonant paintings use the viewer’s perception […]

      Last Night at Salomon Contemporary

      Wednesday, 26 February 2014 17:08

      James Salter’s short stories provide the underpinnings in which characters explore aspects of their relationships to both themselves and to others in “Last Night,” a subtly perceptive group exhibition curated by Merrill Mahan at Salomon Contemporary. Diverse media augment the narrative force of the stinging disclosures and personal inclinations inherent in the show’s theme. Framed […]

      Sonic Weaponry with Smolenski and Szwed

      Tuesday, 25 February 2014 09:00

      It’d be funny to say that Konrad Smolenski is someone you will soon have heard of. Already a pretty big deal throughout Europe, he had the honor of representing Poland at the Venice Biennale this year and made quite the lasting impression. The exhibition, titled Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More situated two […]
