      Shirley Jaffe’s Language of Coexistence at Tibor de Nagy

      Wednesday, 30 October 2013 09:00

      Bursting with colors so gorgeous they could have been mixed by Matisse, Shirley Jaffe’s paintings bring a rare excitement to our senses. The American artist moved to Paris in 1949 and has lived and worked there ever since. Her early works, with thick brush strokes of pigment and strong gestures, were in the style of […]

      Mourning the Loss of a Legend: Good Bye Lou Reed

      Monday, 28 October 2013 16:44

      Lou Reed, the singer, songwriter and guitarist whose work with the Velvet Underground in the 1960s had an impact on generations of rock musicians, and who remained a powerful if polarizing force for the rest of his life, died on Sunday at his home in Southampton, N.Y., on Long Island. He was 71. We respectfully […]

      Rebuilding Subliminal Models: the work of Malcolm Morley

      Monday, 28 October 2013 09:00

      Malcolm Morley’s paintings share a connection with Pop Art—but he isn’t a Pop Artist. He created his work using methods similar to the Photorealists—but he isn’t one of those either. The artist just does not fit into any one particular genealogy; this connection to Photorealism, or Superrealism—as he named it—was discarded by the artist in […]

      Exhilarated Despair: Phaidon Focus on Francis Bacon

      Friday, 25 October 2013 09:00

      Who is Francis Bacon? A new book from Phaidon aims to answer the entirety of that question in a chatty 120+ page book. Part of a new series, Phaidon Focus, each book revolves around the life of a “renowned modern master” (other titles cover Louise Bourgeois, Donald Judd, Henry Matisse, Cy Twombly and more). It […]

      Hubertus Gojowczyck at Moeller Fine Art

      Thursday, 24 October 2013 09:00

      “One senses in Gojowzcyk’s works that they are not exhausted in witty invention. Something higher, something spiritual, is always part of his ‘foolish game of Nothingness,’ though we may not be able to say precisely what it is. It is scarcely more than ephemeral vapor. Everything about Gojowczyk’s work is imbued with humanity,” art historian […]

      The Machine and the Ghost: John O’Connor at Pierogi Gallery

      Wednesday, 23 October 2013 09:00

      Benoit Mandelbrot, the father of Chaos Theory, in his unfinished memoir told the story of when, during the early 1960s, he walked past a classroom at Harvard University and noticed a fellow-professor drawing a near-identical diagram to the one he’d recently landed upon in the course of his groundbreaking research. Possessive of his discovery, Mandelbrot […]

      Remebering Guglielmo Achille Cavellini at Lynch Tham Gallery

      Tuesday, 22 October 2013 09:00

      Entering LYNCH THAM gallery and looking at the show of Guglielmo Achille Cavellini, I could not help it but imagining the tall, thin, slightly bent but all the same elegant old man I met in 1989. It was the year before his death and his son Piero, a dealer, had put together a wonderful, small […]

      Andrew Dadson’s Suburban Suprematism at Galleria Franco Noero

      Monday, 21 October 2013 09:00

      A series of black and white surfaces, halfway between paintings and sculptures, articulate the walls in the new spaces of Galleria Franco Noero. Suburban Suprematism is the title of the third exhibition that Andrew Dadson presents in the gallery in Turin. The title itself reveals two of the main sources of Dadson’s artistic research: the […]

      Dana Levy’s World Order from Sternthal Books

      Friday, 18 October 2013 09:00

      Abandoned spaces, preserved materials, and the lingering feeling of a life once lived—these are all necessary components in the video and photography work of Dana Levy. Her new monograph World Order, published for her solo exhibition at the CCA in Tel-Aviv, highlights her interest with the appropriation, display and study of everyday curiosities. The two […]

      Potentially Guilty Thought: Lawrence Weiner at Giorgio Persano, Turin

      Thursday, 17 October 2013 09:00

      With a strongly emblematic title, MENS REA, Lawrence Weiner’s new exhibition at Giorgio Persano in Turin is divided into three sentences that unfold along the perimeter of the walls. Starting with the presumption that thought is guilty only when it generates an action, within the space of the gallery the artist presents concrete examples of […]
