Posted 5/25/14

On a beautiful, sunny, typically Greek day in early May, I walked up the steps to the Gennadius Library of The American School of Classical Studies, in the heart of Athens, looking forward to seeing a newly opened exhibition titled A Thousand Doors. While I attempted to decipher its flow, a woman behind me, sensing my confusion, asked if I wanted to join in with her group since they were about to begin a tour. As luck would have it, this lady was in fact Elina Kountouri, the co-curator of the exhi... [more]

A career retrospective that looks like a massive, unwieldy group show. Work made over the past thirty plus years, much of which looks like it was made yesterday, some of which looks like it was made tomorrow. Isa Genzken is one of those rare artists who seems to have begun her career fully formed. Even the earliest work on view in her retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago has the presence and bearing that usually comes with the sureness of age. She’s the kind of artist, like Pic... [more]

I have been thinking a lot about Berlin lately—more as a binary concept, rather than just a city. Berlin is a place that provides for anyone who wants it, but can just as easily take away what has been given. It’s a place for an artist to thrive, but one that also allows for distance and isolation. Berlin is a source of inspiration and struggle, of solace and strife. One can disappear into the crowd or be the darling of the spotlight. It is a city that acknowledges its past and readily folds it... [more]

Taking inspiration from Emily Dickenson’s poem of the same name, “The House Without the Door” considers the idea of home as emotionally complicated rather than safe, secure and comforting. Eighteen artists including Mamma Andersson, Louise Bourgeois, Philip-Lorca di Corcia, Luc Tuymans, and Rachel Whiteread use painting, sculpture, installation, and photography to examine the multiple meanings of home with the understanding that home is not only where the heart is, or where comfort and familiar...

Chantal Crousel is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of Isa Genzken at the gallery. The exhibition is composed of a series of paintings, collages and sculptures, created for Paris. Under the unambiguous title “Mona Isa”, the artist brings to the foreground a number of iconic personalities from the history of art, in particular from the Renaissance : da Vinci, Caravaggio, as well as Dürer. By introducing them next to portraits of herself and to her images of the contemporary world, s... [more]

Art’s depiction of the earth has come a long way from the glorifying landscapes of Turner and Constable.  Landscape painting as a genre continues, and may well always retain its niche over the conservative mantelpiece, but the ways in which artists choose to represent the awesome power of the earth over its inhabitants, and indeed humanity’s attempts to master its surroundings, have branched out far beyond the picturesque watercolour.  Vilma Gold’s The Ground Around brings together t...

Scorpio’s Garden presents a “subjective snapshot of the Berlin art scene” by bringing together over 60 works by more than 35 international artists, most of whom live or work in Berlin. It marks the beginning of the second and final year of a varied program of exhibitions and events at the Temporary Kunsthalle.  This year, all exhibitions will be curated by artists. In this case, it is Danish Berlin-based artist Kirstine Roepstorff. The title of the show is explained in the exhibition text. ‘... [more]

        A turbulent voice of new German sculpture launches the brilliantly expanded Whitechapel Art Gallery, re-opened to an eager audience in April. It's a kind of split identity exhibition that assaults the senses and kicks into the imagination. A graduate of the Berlin and Dusseldorf academies in the 1970s Genzken's sculptural playground bears the hallmarks of Professor Joseph Beuys, in her direct acknowledgement of raw material, concrete, aluminium plates and epoxy resin moulds, transformed...

Summer group shows often seem a bit thrown together, with works assembled and combined in the same space under themes such as ‘death’ or ‘bodies.'  But in the case of “I Can See for Miles” at the new shared Chinatown space, Cottage Home, the works compliment each other without a heavy reliance on a thematic relationship.  There is, of course, an underlying theme of rock, as the title is borrowed from a song by The Who, but not everybody would catch that, and even if you do, a song like that can ev...
