In his 1973 text,The Anxiety of Influence, Harold Bloom cited a term called poetic misprision. What he was referring to was a process that artists, in his case literary authors, adopted in order to further themselves from their sources and avoid being derivative. As an artistic process, it’s a brilliant explanation of how to deal with appropriation and context in contemporary art – to consciously and deliberately misread your source in order to create new meaning. For The Character and Shap... [more]

Review also includes “Picture Industry (Goodbye to All That).” Organized by Walead Beshty at Regen Projects. Both of these artist-curated, large group shows gather an impressive all-my-cool-friends and heavy-hitters list of players and both claim, in their statements, to be in large part organized in response to an ambivalent experience or conflicted impression of Los Angeles as a formative urban, cultural context. Both shows are full of really good individual works. Couched in terms of Adorno... [more]

Despite his remarkable prescience and pioneering treatment of mass media imagery, Robert Heinecken (1931-2006) has been largely marginalized in the mainstream art historical record. Heinecken’s early experiments, beginning in the 1960s, with camera-less photographic cooption, alteration, and repurposing of magazine pages and commercial pornography anticipated by a decade the mass media appropriationist strategies that later launched the Pictures Generation and has since become utt...

Wallworks is just that. For her first exhibition as the new Director of Visual Arts at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Betti-Sue Hertz chose to highlight the architecture of the galleries by commissioning artists to create new works on its walls. Designed by Fumihiko Maki in 1993, the building was intended to facilitate social engagement and be some sort of community haven downtown. The artists were invited to create their works in response to Maki’s vision as well as to two thematic threa... [more]

    Abstract America: New Paintings and Sculpture is not for me, but I have to admit that the Saatchi Gallery’s done a phenomenal job gathering up artwork by the biggest and brightest in contemporary American abstract artists.  As this was my first visit to Saatchi’s swanky digs in Chelsea, I must also mention that the gallery is phenomenal – perhaps even the best venue for viewing art that I’ve ever come across.  Many of the works in the exhibition seemed too clever for my taste, but the few...

It has been a rough start to the new millennium, and sadly art survey shows have failed to reflect the context in which art makers and viewers live. Thankfully Lauri Firstenberg of LAXART has remedied the disconnect with the 2008 California Biennial. Before you walk in the door, Sam Durant's banners (in English and Spanish) hijack the OC's civic-boosterism-via-banner-blight, by reminding residents that their comfortable homes were built by the sweat of an undocumented workforce, on a piece of...

“Tell me things I won’t mind forgetting,” says a dying woman in Amy Hempel’s story In the Cemetery Where Al Jolson is Buried. “Make it useless stuff or skip it,” the woman continues, and her friend, the story’s narrator, tentatively launches into a succession of anecdotes. Tidbits about Bing Crosby and chimpanzees downplay the closeness of death and the women lose themselves in their own witty rapport, dismissing everything weighty in favor of anything paltry. Amanda Ross-Ho’s second solo show at C... [more]

Amanda Ross-Ho and Kirsten Stolmann are heterosexual women friends who are practicing artists with studios in the same building in Los Angeles, CA. Their show Vaginal Rejuvenation explores all of these things, in an amalgam of collage, sculpture, and photographs. Ross-Ho and Stolman have known each other for ten years, and this bond is examined, parsed, and repurposed in the show. They have cannibalized each others’ work to make new pieces and “vandalized” or otherwise marked each others’ work.... [more]
