Minimal art is to art what art is to things at large. Respected, but somehow standing out as a little too elitist, an easy way in the complexity of a larger universe. After the first round of sixties minimalism has been fully incorporated by institutions all over the world, even somebody who appreciates abstraction and is privy to art history might be caught frowning upon an industrially-manufactured monochromatic cube. Tackling minimal aesthetics today requires a little more sophistication than the faux n... [more]

It is a game made with beautiful hunks of glass and written with chalk on the floor, some kind of conceptual art hopscotch. One probably shouldn't hop though. Each arrangement is a different play on numbers and markers, of how space works in fantastically simple reduction, a theory of sculpture, or so the title implies. I see it, and then I read it. Then I compare what I read to what I see. This a simple one. Glass and chalk. So basic, but with a beautiful simplicity that has that great gush of... [more]

When you are cremated, you aren’t actually reduced to ash. After the body has been incinerated dry bone fragments remain, which are ground up into dust. Sandwiched between two lens-shaped pieces of glass on a small pedestal is a group of what appears to be shards of coral, almost like a decoration you’d see on someone’s coffee table. These are actually human remains presented as a sculpture. In addition to this is another incarnation of the piece. Human Dust (1969), by Agnes Denes consists of two photograph... [more]

Mel Bochner’s latest show at Fraenkel Gallery takes as its starting point a seminal, if particularly slippery body of work from the mid to late sixties. In it, Bochner turns to photography to document his various experiments in process (capturing shifting configurations of blocks, grids, and that sort of thing), and somewhat unexpectedly the medium ends up becoming the primary material support for his phenomenological and linguistic investigations. (It definitely makes you wonder how much... [more]
