• Eugene Lemay’s Navigator

      Monday, 30 April 2012 17:24

        The works may be viewed as visions of a mythological underworld. They are tributes to all the dead, everywhere, who left without the chance to say goodbye. Their depth, mystery and profundity are not hidden or difficult to decipher; they are accessible. Their power lies in the strength of truth, of authenticity. The subtle […]

    • Ron Gorchov At Cheim & Read

      Friday, 27 April 2012 15:47

      Rejecting the traditional rectangular painting support, Gorchov is able to create a compositional balance all his own – one that continues to feel fresh. His skill in dealing with a unique support feels almost as if the work were  able to carve out it’s own niche in painting history. The selectively hung exhibition, curated by […]

      Thursday, 26 April 2012 16:17

      In the first phase, opened by a hilarious but somewhat unnecessarily prolonged and messy BUTOH  performance (sort of post-1945 “avant-garde” Japanese expressive dance) of the performance artists, Ronnie Baker and Luku-San, Elena Slivnyak displayed some of her latest experimental work whose choice of evolving futuristic forms as well as visibly tough and all-purpose texture clearly […]

    • Nicolas Carrier And The Roving Eye

      Monday, 23 April 2012 17:41

      The work of Nicolas Carrier is mainly composed of videos. His videos are of two types: some are “written” films with a synopsis and a direction, others reuse found footage. In both cases, the question is to attain the borders of the narration and to see how, by referencing cinema, to get out of the […]

    • First and Only Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art Launches

      Wednesday, 18 April 2012 16:31

          Even well after the cultural wars of the mid 1980’s, the representation of sexual difference in art has been aggressively policed. And America’s museums, with few notable exceptions, have been silent in the face of what is now the most vocal contemporary civil rights frontier. But there has never been a shortage of […]
