      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 […]

      Coinciding with their current two-person exhibition at Longhouse Projects, NYC, The Other Side and In Between, Christian Bonnefoi and Ana Cardoso had a conversation on painting. Christian Bonnefoi: The title proposed by the exhibition, The Other Side and In Between, names a divergence and modification of the rules of painting to the extent that the work’s realization is […]

      Keith J. Varadi Talks Shop With Bodega

      Wednesday, 19 February 2014 09:00

      I first learned about Bodega over three years ago when they were only on their third exhibition—a solo presentation of Nicholas Gottlund, an interdisciplinary artist who runs an exquisite press, Gottlund Verlag, between Los Angeles (where he now lives) and Eastern Pennsylvania (where he started it). The following month, one of my best friends and […]

      Hannah Höch at Whitechapel Gallery

      Thursday, 13 February 2014 09:00

      Hannah Höch was a pioneer Dadaist of 1920’s Berlin. Somewhat forgotten, or at least pigeon-holed by art history; she was a social provocateur who clashed with the Nazis and was found guilty of Entartete Kunst (degenerate art). The exhibition is a survey of the artist’s works on paper and is the first major exhibition of Höch’s […]

      Theo Rosenblum’s Grim Equality with Vito Schnabel

      Tuesday, 11 February 2014 19:30

      Theo Rosenblum’s third solo show with Vito Schnabel features a series of black, monochromatic reliefs, which are a shift from the artist’s typically colorful and ebullient, pop-infused sculptures. The show is a darkly romantic meditation on the power dynamics of predator and prey, as well as death and the manifold forms it takes on, both […]

      Vincent Desiderio is perhaps settling too comfortably into the role of master.  Long considered one of the more skilled and thoughtful painters of our generation, his impressive 2011 showing at New York’s Marlborough put him amongst our best.  The exhibition remains a peak moment in Desiderio’s career, where decades of discipline, contemplation, experimentation and deliberate […]

      Jesse Greenberg’s Sensual Materialism at Derek Eller Gallery

      Thursday, 6 February 2014 09:00

      For his first solo exhibition in New York, Jesse Greenberg reveals himself as a sensual materialist who balances freely between the two seemingly incongruous worlds of the natural and synthetic. The works range in scale from midsized to small sculptures and reliefs, and are arranged in a way that is comfortable, intimate, and results in […]

      From February 17 – 19 2013, Sarah Gold and Karlyn De Jongh introspected Ben Vautier in Nice, France. Through different performances – round table conversations, body painting, communication through written texts, or by lying together in bed in the ‘Ben Room’ of their hotel – ‘Ben’ was investigated, openly discussing any topic. The following text is […]

      Maria Anderson In Conversation with Michael Brennan

      Monday, 3 February 2014 09:00

      In one of his poems, Charles Simic talks about stopping before a closed butcher shop on a late-night walk, where “There are knives that glitter like altars/ in a dark church.” Michael Brennan’s new razor paintings have this feel to them, that of wandering your neighborhood after dark and making it strange again and again.
