“I was there; it was everything you ever wanted,” the man—probably in his 50s—gestured toward the left panel of Gordon Matta-Clark’s photographic diptych, Day’s End (Pier 52). “These walkways—they were full of naked men. Beautiful, naked men.” I tried to picture the naked men in the square, 1975 photograph of a dark warehouse interior, but with the other man standing a few feet from me, I focused instead on the right panel, not wanting to seem interested in him. Was he flirting or just telling... [more]

“Interventions in the Landscape,” the group exhibition at Galerie Lelong, is an examination of the rather acrimonious relationship humans have with the natural world.  Documenting their creations, performances, and investigations through the uses of photography and film, seventeen artists expose the social, political, and emotional implications man-made actions have on our surroundings. In each of the works, made between 1968 and 2010, not only has a human presence been unceremoniously forced... [more]

Pulling from the Museum of Contemporary Art’s (MCA) own collection, curator Tricia Van Eck, with the help of Dominic Molon (a former curator at the MCA, now Chief Curator at the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis), presents this season’s bread-and-butter exhibition. Running until May, “Without You I’m Nothing” addresses an issue that has defined art from the ‘60s onward: the viewer. What is the role of the audience in art? Does art exist without an audience? How can art affect and effect the view... [more]

It’s impossible to enter the Museum of Contemporary Art’s (MCA) current exhibition “Rewind: 1970s to 1990s, Works from the MCA Collection” without first encountering Kay Rosen’s new work Yours/ours, 2010.  Rosen’s language-based works explore the significant shifts in meaning that can happen to words or phrases when seemingly insignificant shifts in their presentation are made.  At the MCA, Rosen presents the word “YOURS” divided by the entrance to the galleries in such a way so that...
