      Wednesday, 22 May 2013 20:21

      By Masha Froliak In the midst of nineteen commercial buildings of Rockefeller Center, scattered between 49th to 50th street, stand nine unique human figures of Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone. Human Nature, the latest site specific creation of the artist, is built of massive bluestone slabs piled on top of each other into forms which resemble […]

      In Conversation: Noah Becker interviews Daria Irincheeva

      Tuesday, 21 May 2013 14:45

      Daria Irincheeva has a sharp wit and keen sense of humor. Perhaps this is why she collaborates easily at Maurizo Cattelan’s Family Business gallery where she is director. Whenever I connect with her and the intense photographer Ruy Sanchez Blanco, I feel energized by our dialogue. Irincheeva’s solo exhibition Avoid This Water took place at […]

    • THE GREAT GATSBY

      The Great Gatsby in 3D: As Reviewed by Tony Zaza

      Thursday, 16 May 2013 14:43

      By Tony Zaza Neither an interpretation nor a translation of  a literary work, but rather the basis for a deconstruction, The Great Gatsby rolls along feverishly like a bad memory. And so to entice you to pay attention to the pivotal point of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, director Baz Luhrmann sugar coats numerous […]

      Ten (Of the Many) Notes We Took at Frieze Art Fair:

      Tuesday, 14 May 2013 16:45

      1. Everything looks better in a tent. The natural light in that fair was amazing! 2. Large NYC Galleries are still killing it, but smaller international galleries are holding their own by showing insightful and poetic work. (Which is often easier to ship and just as fun to look at.) 3. Liam Gillick and Carl […]

      Ellsworth Kelly at Ninety with Matthew Marks Gallery

      Monday, 13 May 2013 18:33

      It’s pretty rare to have the opportunity to see the work of a living legend. There are very few artists who ever achieve this status, standing head and shoulders above the rest of us. If the measure of influence is equated to height, Ellworth Kelly is way up there. Turning 90 this year, this art […]

      Art Fair Review: Pulse Does It With Class.

      Friday, 10 May 2013 21:48

      Ah, art fair season. What’s not to love, right? Sometimes art fairs take your money, pour an unbelievable amount of closely-hung work into your brain via your wandering eyeballs, and kick you in the ass as you exit. You are stuck on the sidewalk wondering whether you ever need to see a work of art […]

      Here and There: Maya Lin at Pace Gallery

      Wednesday, 8 May 2013 14:53

      One of the most elegant and thought-provoking exhibitions this year is Maya Lin’s Here and There. Lin became the center of controversy in 1981 when she won the competition to design the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Still a student, and virtually unknown, her design was chosen from over 1,400 submissions.  I remember seeing an exhibit of […]
