      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 […]

      Wednesday, 16 October 2013 09:00

      At the Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain, artist Christodoulos Panayiotou deciphers the history and sociology of contemporary society. This subtle and astonishing exhibition strikes a wonderful chord. For over ten years, the Cypriot artist Panayiotou has delved into contemporary history through that of the island where he was born, to show the different layers […]

      Klaus Enrique talks Arcimboldo and the Macabre with Kinsey Robb

      Tuesday, 15 October 2013 12:00

      Klaus Enrique is a New York based photographer whose work echoes that of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, with some surprising twists. For one, the subjects of his portraits—made from fruits, vegetables, and yes, even raw chicken—are captured in real time, in the glorious moments before they inevitably began to decay. The photographs are stunning commentaries on the […]

      Anna-Bella Papp’s Untitled Clay at Modern Art

      Tuesday, 15 October 2013 09:00

      For her first exhibition with the gallery, Romanian born Anna-Bella Papp orchestrates a compositional space that reflects modernistic characteristics while evading any singular readings of her practice. Upon entering the gallery the viewer is embraced with a sense of openness, to both the works and the space. An openness that allows for a personal narrative […]

      Noah Becker’s first solo exhibition in New York since 1999 will open at the Lodge Gallery on November 7th, 2013 from 7 to 9pm. Many of the works were generated in the last two years out of his studio in Brooklyn. They break the seal of white noise haunting the Lower East Side, where exaltation […]

      Experiencing Gayatri Spivak: Training the Imagination

      Friday, 11 October 2013 09:00

      Debunking Foucaltian notions of power, post colonialism, and feminism in the most intricate fashion, Gayatri Chakravoerty Spivak left me mesmerized in a lecture she gave last month at New York University entitled, “Democracy and Representation.” I have worshipped at the academic alter of Gayatri Spivak for close to a decade and now would be able […]

      Subverting Deadly Materials: The Work of Jesse Sugarmann

      Thursday, 10 October 2013 09:00

      A recent Facebook comment on the artistic validity of a social practice project made a snarky case that war could too be considered art, due to its impact and sublime scale. If one took up this misguided thought experiment, then an elaborating context could be the rhetoric of Italian Futurists. As they posited, the tools […]

      Report from Boston, Fall 2013.

      Wednesday, 9 October 2013 09:00

      Some meaningful statements on painting are being made in Boston this fall. At the Institute of Contemporary Art is Expanding the Field of Painting, highlighting works from the ICA collection that challenge the orthodoxy of traditional materials, subjects, and techniques of the genre. While challenging the orthodoxy of painting’s, well, everything has been going on […]

      Flesh And Bone: Francis Bacon And Henry Moore

      Saturday, 5 October 2013 09:00

      Flesh and Bone pits a happily married establishment figure and Royal College of Art tutor, against a self-taught sadomasochistic gambler with a fondness for alcohol and the sleek underbelly of Soho. It is difficult not to see this exhibition as a competition of interests and the interesting; the very personalities of both artists are quite evident—one only needs […]
