• Nadia Ayari: Multiplicity

      Tuesday, 13 September 2011 14:20

      I have always felt that the materiality of painting has the visceral command necessary to address the hardest of subjects. My interest in the eye began a few years ago. In it, I found a character that focuses complex narratives into simple, abstract forms. This reduction is paired in my recent work with the multiplicity […]

    • Suspension of the Covered Woman

      Tuesday, 13 September 2011 14:06

       As a foreigner living in the Middle East, I was often caught between a desire to look at covered women and the realization that the clothing worn was expressly designed to discourage looking. Over the course of a six-month residency at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn, I explored this tension by researching the history […]

        “Disponible: A Kind of Mexican Show” is a project generated from an accelerated research in Mexico and a long-term dialogue between the curators. It presents a few individuals’ visions from the Mexican art scene, particularly those who are not directly related to the linage of the over-exposed, post- conceptual “magical realism,” which is highly […]

        Benoit Laffiché’s Déplier (‘Unfolding’) engages in the poetry of moving, branching out, the ambiguous and the fragile.

    • Sheree Hovsepian: Contact

      Saturday, 10 September 2011 16:44

      The photographic moment is surely one of both reduction and addition. Reduction in the way existence is cropped, depth is replaced by the illusion of such, and so on. Addition, in the continual replication of the moment, interpretation, and levels of seeing. For “Contact” at the Charest-Weinberg Gallery, Sheree Hovsepian presents a tightly edited body […]

    • A Luminous Interval in Bilbao

      Thursday, 8 September 2011 02:44

      Can a “luminous interval” represent the decline and fragmentation of modern man? At the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao the question remains open. For the first time, the D. Daskalopoulos Collection is presented to the public, one of the largest and most comprehensive private collections of contemporary art in the world, housed in the geometry of rupture […]

      Thursday, 8 September 2011 02:26

        The Soft Machine, the 1961 novel by William S. Burroughs from which the exhibit draws its title, depicts a dark world odyssey ravaged by drugs, sex, poverty, hatred, and authoritarian mind-control. Fifty years later, the curators at the Pace Gallery are drawing on its title and themes for “Soft Machines,” a group show featuring […]

      Friday, 2 September 2011 17:06

      Maria Walker: Would you describe your studio space for us? Cordy Ryman: My studio is in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. It’s a huge, one-story garage building with a few dividing walls, 16-foot ceilings, no natural light, good artificial lighting. I’ve been there about five years. My block is all industrial and commercial. I’m flanked by a […]

    • The Workers

      Friday, 2 September 2011 16:41

        We all know what Rosie the Riveter looked like, and what she stood for. Ford-era production line labor—and the rise of powerful unions—left us indelible portraits of work in mid 20th century America. Before that, Dickens created searing portraits of labor in the proto-industrial era, as Millet and his followers recorded a vivid picture […]
