by

Henry Taylor at Untitled New York March 1st - April 4th
Posted 3/24/15

Near the entrance of Untitled Gallery on the Lower East Side is a slab of concrete with a shovel stuck into it. Chair legs and wire sprout off the shovel, as do branches wrapped in stretched pantyhose like wings on an urban angel. The shovel’s handle fits into the mouth of a plastic bottle shaped like a fuel container, painted black to resemble an African mask. On the adjacent wall hangs an antique wooden mirror frame, which now holds a hand-drawn Confederate flag found by the artist. Two to... [more]

The curators of a new exhibition at Marmottan Museum, Paris, Georges Vigarello and Nadeije Laneyrie-Dagen, have chosen an audacious topic: La Toilette and The Invention of Privacy, tracing the ritual practices that accompany the toilette through selected part of art history (with works on display from the 15th to the first half of 20th century).

Subodh Gupta "Seven Billion Light Years" Hauser and Wirth, NYC  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Scale suits some artists as much as it defeats others. This sense of risk is pervasively present in Subodh Gupta's frequently enthralling exhibition at Hauser and Wirth's 18th Street space. Spaces as huge as Hauser and Wirth's can often bring out the worst in artists, a profession not uncongenial to those with a streak of grandiosity. Happily, Gupta understands the nature of scale and spectacle better than most artists of his stature, and, in works like the sculpture, "This is Not a Fountain", th... [more]

The Radiants at Bortolami X w/Green Tea Gallery  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Four years on from the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor in Japan, radioactive water is still pouring into the sea. In spite of this, life goes on, politicians eat potentially radioactive strawberries for the cameras and something called "art" attempts to process a world as resistant to comprehensibility as the one we call, more or less, home. Into this strange reactor pool comes the show The Radiants bringing together work by Ei Arakawa, Jutta Koether, Sigmar Poke, UNITED BROTHERS and ma... [more]

Tamar Halpern "My Voice at the Pace of Drifting Clouds" at On Stellar Rays  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Painting is perpetually in crisis; rarely does the urgency of the crisis feel as palpable as in Tamar Halpern's show at On Stellar Rays. In an increasingly digital visual eco-system, painters are not forgiven easily if they don't reckon with the changes. Halpern's works-- paintings, in a sense; prints in a sense; even sculptures if looked at in another way--are determined not to be overwritten by the coders. The works, generally a combination of UltraChrome ink on linen and paper with some o... [more]

Archibald J. Motley Jr.: Hearing the Contemporary Pitch   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Archibald Motley at Chicago Cultural Center March 7th - August 31st
Posted 3/20/15

Approaching Archibald J. Motley Jr.’s traveling retrospective, currently on view at the Chicago Cultural Center, one can hear strains of jazz carrying down the Grand Staircase. The music pipes through a ceiling speaker in the brightly lit hall that’s meant to prepare and inform the viewer with a timeline of the painter’s life on one wall, a collection of his quotes on the other. And then one steps through, into the exhibition room itself—and all those nice little atmospheric... [more]

Remember those misspent days spent playing Golden Axe? Remember your parents confiscating your Mario Kart? Turns out your parents didn’t appreciate good art when they saw it. Golden Axe, Atari Super Mario Kart, Super Nintendo Today many people passionately acknowledge computer game art as relevant, “legitimate,” art. Others believe that computer game art is dumbed down, that the pinnacle of artistic talent was the Renaissance—with "The Masters," like Caravaggio, Leon... [more]
