That day, the Yellow Emperor showed the poet his palace. They left behind, in long succession, the first terraces on the west which descend, like the steps of an almost measureless amphitheater, to a paradise or garden whose metal mirrors and intricate juniper hedges already prefigured the labyrinth. They lost themselves in it, gaily at first, as if condescending to play a game, but afterwards not without misgiving, for its straight avenues were subject to a curvature, ever so slight, but con...

Posted 7/26/12

Snaking through the rooms of SFMOMA’s recently opened Cindy Sherman retrospective, I felt disturbingly underwhelmed by portrait after portrait of the artist acting as her own costumer, make-up artist, hairdresser, and photographer, becoming in each photograph, a different woman. Whispering into their recorders and to each other, the critics sound-byte thesis statements echoed off the walls like sage axioms: “pictures are misleading,” “identity is a social construction,” “photography is implicit in the fabr...

Posted 4/24/12

The Museum of Modern Art is host to two significant exhibitions, both of which explore Photography’s relationship to reality. Cindy Sherman’s 6th floor mid-career retrospective and Eugene Atget’s “Documents pour artistes”, hidden away in the Photography 3rd floor galleries, represent diametrically opposed positions. First some notes on the Sherman retrospective, which is the big draw. The first room held a couple of revealing images. Revealing to me at least, because I had never considere... [more]

As an artist, Cindy Sherman is a woman of many guises. She simultaneously performs as photographer, model, stylist, set designer, and makeup artist–creating evocative, detailed worlds in which a collective contemporary identity is both faintly revealed and starkly exposed. Through the medium of the portrait, Sherman has spent the past thirty-five years mirroring the social and, often, sexual tropes inherent in a modern, media-based culture. Acting the varying roles of vamp, housewife, girl-next-door, victim,... [more]

Shared Intelligence will be the first major museum exhibition to survey the fraught but highly productive relationship of painting to photography in 20th-Century American Art. It brings together approximately 75 photographs and paintings by such artists as Robert Bechtle, Chuck Close, Thomas Eakins, Sherrie Levine, Georgia O’Keeffe, Cindy Sherman, Charles Sheeler, Ben Shahn, Edward Steichen, and Alfred Stieglitz for whom the two mediums were essential to their practices.In opposition to Modernis...

The Rubell Family Collection is housed in a modified, clearly marked former Drug Enforcement warehouse that was once a storehouse for confiscated narcotics straight out of Miami Vice. With low slung white couches and a sleek outdoor courtyard that could easily be found on South Beach, it lacks the rough industrial aura of the Margulies Collection, but presents a contemporary array of works with a personalized edge. At a mere 40,000-something square feet, it’s more manageable than its humongous... [more]

Summer is known for its mass weekend exodus of metropolitan art viewers and influx of New York CityPass-toting tourists. Galleries and museums tend to drag out everything but the kitchen sink from June to August, dusting off works from basement vaults and permanent collections and mounting crowd-pleasing group shows more eclectic than those from the regular season. The result can be refreshing, haphazard, banal, idiosyncratic or cutting edge. Haunted, Contemporary Photography/Video/P... [more]

      It may be obvious that curators in the art world would appear pretty ridiculous even attempting to moonlight as professional basketball players, but the reverse, it turns out, is not true: professional basketball players can, in fact, moonlight as curators. The Flag Art Foundation is responsible for revealing this perplexity, and the show Size DOES Matter, curated by Cleveland Cavalier Shaquille O’Neal, proves that pro-ball players do not play the curation game like curators do. This is... [more]

  The Pictures Generation, 1974–1984 is the first major museum exhibition to focus on a highly influential group of somewhat affiliated artists that were one of the first generations raised with popular television and an abundance of disposable products. This upbringing, coupled with the rising popularity of M.F.A. academic training that often discussed Barthian post-structuralism, produced a generation of artists wanting to deconstruct visual culture by appropriating its photograp...

        Cindy Sherman’s first UK exhibition since 2007 is small but memorable, curated by the artist and containing three large colour photographs made in 2008. The works continue the artist’s celebrated investigations into notions of gender, beauty and identity—Sherman filling the roles of both artist and model, as she has for the past 30 years. The works exhibited at Sprüth Magers are both mesmerizing and disconcerting. The subjects of all three portraits are strong, aristocratic women, who... [more]

Life in Space represents the second iteration of the Dallas Museum of Art’s intern exhibition program. As I had a hand in organizing the project, what follows is not a review as much as an explication of one conceptual thread that underlies this particular group of works. Though one commonality between the works on display prompts the exhibition’s title—namely, the sense of a relationship between cultural space and identity construction in the instance of each—another compelling poi...

        In her first solo show of new work since 2004 (which debuted first at Metro Pictures in NY), the women who Cindy Sherman portrays have, like the artist herself, radically altered their appearance.  Enshrined by David Velasco on Artforum.com as "the face that launched a thousand theses," Sherman seamlessly morphs into characters of any gender, age, style or era. In her new series, Sherman stands before green screen projections of traditional portrait settings transformed into an arra... [more]

All artists should be so fortunate as Cindy Sherman. I am not referring to fanfare and blue-chip gallery representation here, but rather the longevity of a distinguished career and her ability to maintain a rigid standard of quality that, though there are certainly  ups and downs in the oeuvre, has produced body after body of work that seemingly hit the right contemporary note.  One can't help but appreciate the professional (yes, that word can be applied to art-making) staging and perfectionis...

As Madeleine Grynsztejn takes over as Director for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA), their ongoing exhibition series "Artists in Depth," perhaps signals the new course that the museum is taking. After showing a "greatest hits" exhibit ("Highlights from the Permanent Collection") this series thoughtfully examines the work of several major artists that the museum has large collections of. This allows the variety of an artist's output to be displayed, so that one gets a sense of the art... [more]
