      Leah Oates: What is your family background.  Paul Bridgewater: My family is ‘Merican, ‘Merican, ‘Merican!…Here a long time! (Southern accent) English, French, Black, Italian, German, Mexican and probably a lot of other things…muts! LO: Did you always know you would be a gallerist? PB: Me and my friends were artists. They were clueless, so I […]

      Rebirth: Recent Work by Mariko Mori at Japan Society

      Friday, 15 November 2013 09:00

      Mariko Mori’s much-anticipated solo exhibition titled Rebirth at the Japan Society is a startling departure from the energy and defiance of her early photographic work. Her transformation from a daring thinker whose cyborgian bad girls portrayed Japanese angst to a meditative Zen like artist is not particularly enthralling. Long inspired by Buddhist spirituality, Mori’s urge […]

      Illuminating Social Concerns: The Work of Jan Tichy

      Thursday, 14 November 2013 09:00

      Politics of Light, Jan Tichy’s first solo exhibition in NYC, is a moody paean to light and shadow, to the ebbs and flows of what light reveals and what darkness hides. Tichy’s installations are a fluid integration of diverse media incorporating animation, film, photography, and sculpture, all invested with the presence of mechanical light—be it […]

      Last Meeting with Deborah Turbeville

      Wednesday, 13 November 2013 09:00

      Deborah Turbeville, a fashion photographer, always claimed that she wanted to blur the boundaries between fashion and art. Her early avant-garde works back in the 1970s were strikingly different – melancholic, unsettling and technically imperfect: grainy, overexposed, and cropped in unusual ways. They changed fashion photography from clean and predictable into dark and strange. I […]

      Constructing Liquid Veils: An Interview with Claire Chesnier

      Tuesday, 12 November 2013 09:00

      Matthew Hassell: Where do you find inspiration for your compositions? Are they organically evolving through your process, or are they sourced from the outside world somewhere? Claire Chesnier: My compositions proceed from the avoidance of the edges of the paper facing me. The shapes I create result from a physical relation with the support: its […]

      Between Asking and Telling: An Interview with Rachel Beach

      Friday, 8 November 2013 09:00

      Matthew Hassell: Outside of previous work, where do you find inspiration to begin a new sculpture? Rachel Beach: The works usually begin with something very elemental. I try to simplify—I think about a construction: how do you build something … a stack, a mark, a seam, an edge, the intersection of two things, a point […]

      Gianni Caravaggio and the Essence of the Image

      Wednesday, 6 November 2013 09:00

      For years now Gianni Caravaggio’s work has insistently been posing a single question: what is the essence of an image? Posing this question at the end of postmodernity means freeing oneself from any fears of comparisons with the past, shedding all neo-isms, post-isms, and trans-isms to expose oneself to an original gesture, to an initial […]

      Dealing Drugs with Jibade-Khalil Huffman

      Tuesday, 5 November 2013 09:00

      In his first solo exhibition at Samuel Freeman in Los Angeles, The Four People You Meet at Every Drug Deal, Jibade-Khalil Huffman brought his viewer into a world of myriad, reflecting surfaces; a coreless expanse of language and image that flitted over the face of something unutterable. Huffman showed work in a range of media […]

      Photographic Testament: Revamping the Holy Bible

      Monday, 4 November 2013 09:00

      The bible has been a pillar of society since its writing centuries ago. At the same time, it is a fractured and controversial document wrought not only by the wars fought in its name, but also by conflicts over the document itself, how it should be read, translated, and distributed. There are countless versions, each […]

      Cinema Without Conscience: Tony Zaza Takes in NYFF 51

      Friday, 1 November 2013 09:00

      The 51st New York Film Festival is more of a milestone than the 50th Anniversary edition. The Festival demonstrates that American filmmaking has fully transformed itself from a plastic form of storytelling in time and motion, into a form of self-indulgent self-centered vanity.  This was to have been expected. Since the mid-1990s, celebrity has been […]
