In Madrid young is sometimes old, sometimes French, but mostly from Berlin   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
at ARCO Madrid February 19th - February 23rd
Posted 2/18/14

For about two decades now the qualifications “young,” “emerging,” and “new” have functioned as the ultimate buzzwords, inspiring a Pavlovian rustle of checkbooks amongst collectors “buying with their ears.” No wonder art fairs have latched onto the phenomenon by creating special sections dedicated to gallery start-ups. At Frieze it’s called Frame; Art Brussels has Young; Art Rotterdam’s got a New Art Section. And there is, of course, LISTE, the fair designed from the start to showcase the lates... [more]

Art Rotterdam’s Great Leap Forward   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
at Art Rotterdam February 6th - February 9th
Posted 2/3/14

Fifteen years into the game Art Rotterdam has comfortably settled into the role of top contemporary art fair in the Netherlands. But director Fons Hof is not resting on his laurels. Edition 2014 signals a Great Leap Forward. This is to be taken quite literally as the fair is moving from the Cruise Terminal on the Kop van Zuid to the monumental Van Nellefabriek. The new venue, with its peripheral location bringing to mind Frieze New York, has a lot going for it: the catering – slow and poor... [more]

Berlin vs. Paris: We Ask The Galleries   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
at FIAC October 24th, 2013 - October 27th, 2013
Posted 10/23/13

Over the past fifteen years Berlin has carved itself a niche as the most vibrant artistic city in Europe, a place to find both galleries and working artists of all ilk. It has become synonymous with the type of creative energy that seems to push forward, always seeking new boundaries and forms. As such it makes an interesting contrast with Paris, a city that has previously taken this role but is now perhaps too stable, too comfortable, and maybe too expensive, to compete. In a way, within this context,... [more]

The Sophomore Year: An Interview with Tony Karman, President and Director of EXPO Chicago   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 9/17/13

Chicago’s rocky road in the art fair business isn’t such a distant memory. But if the second iteration of EXPO CHICAGO – running September 19-22 – proves as appealing as its debut last year, that history may be finally relegated to the category of old news. As exhibitors put the finishing touches to their booths on Navy Pier, the show’s President and Director, Tony Karman, offers a few thoughts on his state of the art. Thomas Connors: How do you go about positionin... [more]

Bert Stern at La Galerie de l'Instant July 11th, 2013 - September 25th, 2013
Posted 7/23/13

This is a terrible show and I loved it. By any of the criteria by which most of the galleries I normally visit judge themselves it was, what, I don't know what to say, a joke? A disaster? A farce? As appears to be my normal approach I'm going to talk about two things, the gallery first, then I'll get on to the artist… The gallery was a mess! There was Bert Stern's work on the walls, with one or two other random photos thrown in, as well as lots of other pictures from other photographe... [more]

The Brussels Scene: Conviviality and Good Vibes   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 4/16/13

Brussels. Sounds like mussels. And maybe a comparison between the two isn't completely out of this world. An oddly shaped, introverted entity, which has no particularly distinct features; looks pale, grey, and weirdly aggressive from the outside but provides a lot of protein to those who persist and dig in. In a recent article in The New York Times (Art Market | Big in Belgium, 3/20/13), Jim Lewis interviewed Art Brussels' new artistic director Katerina Gregos. She described Brussels as a city...

Some Shows We Think You Should See   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 1/24/13

Perhaps the art fair brought you to LA, or maybe you live here but are looking for a little international flavor from the coterie of foreign art dealers caravanning in art from far-flung lands. There is a certain, dynamic allure to any assembly, party, fair. But in the end, nobody really loves an art fair. There's the art fairs in the Grand Palais in Paris, whose beautiful glass dome certainly takes the sting out, but as a rule a convention hall will only ever be a conventional hall: harsh over...

Emerging and Alternative Spaces: Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 10/10/12

Brazil is mind-bendingly big. It has a population of around 200 million, with a landmass of over 8,500,000 square kilometres. Which makes writing about its art scene naturally reductive. Gulp. What I’ll try to do then, is narrate some of the interesting things I did discover visiting two of Brazil’s most prominent international cities, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Clearing my head of kashasa, and getting over the size of the country (I am from the British Isles, which could fit into the coin poc... [more]

Santa Fe: A Wheel with Two Hubs   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 12/6/11

The art scene in Santa Fe is a wheel with two hubs.  Although galleries are spread all over town, there are two distinct art centers: The Railyard and Canyon Road. Each of these distinct art centers has a different focus, history and sense of identity, and visits to each center will leave very different impressions of Santa Fe’s visual culture. The narrow Canyon Road comprises an eclectic mix of 130 mostly adobe galleries and restaurants that wind up the hill, near Santa Fe’s historic plaza. A... [more]

Interview with Emilie Trice  
8/14/11 Posted 8/14/11

Berlin, Aug. 2011 - Berlin’s buzz as a hive for international art activity owes a great deal to Emilie Trice. As writer Gideon Lewis-Kraus describes in his forthcoming book: "Emilie did have actual jobs, a series of them – she was always yelling at someone in German customs, trying to get them to free up a six-foot carved totem from Uttar Pradesh in time for an opening that night…or she was curating a pretty good show featuring some of our friends and later written up on the style-and-art-blog...
