A single image in an empty room. The signature contrast of seventeenth-century Dutch-still life permeates the pictorial field, Easter lilies occupying a significant quotient of the bouquet, delicate white crespias folded between the rich green of the leaves laid flat against the soft, white tablecloth, patterned only by the table visible through the opacity of the thinly woven fabric. The background in the distance is a pitch black, the kind that could only exist in a photo studio; the image is... [more]

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...

As part of Haus der Kulturen der Welt’s Berlin Documentary Forum last month, writer and theorist Sylvère Lotringer presented a three-part lecture series called Framing Death, examining changing representations of death in contemporary culture. In the third presentation, certainly the most ambitious and expansive of the series, Lotringer screened Wim Wenders and Nicholas Ray’s 1980 film Lightning Over Water. The screening was interspersed with recordings of interviews Lotringer did himself with the... [more]

A group show at Wallspace gallery a few blocks away from the Sarah Sze exhibition at Tonya Bonakdar also deals with the transformation of everyday objects, but in a much less extravagant, more lo-fi fashion.  Including work by Jay DeFeo, John Divola, Martha Friedman, Daniel Gordon, Ryan Kitson, Jiří Kovanda, Kiyoji Otsuji, Adam Putnam, Laura Riboli, Judith Scott, Martin Soto Climent, Erika Vogt, Christopher Williams and Mark Wyse, the exhibition--Drag, Swagger, Fit Together--draws...

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]

‘The choreography of mediatised reality’   --Will Self, ‘The Bounds of Inner Space’ Gagosian Gallery Catalogue 2010 We are not living in the real world, but merely exist in a virtual dimension, held like flies in aspic by shifting screens and filters which drip feed sensations of experience: violence, pleasure, the monstrous, the curious. These filters are precisely created episodes of a world theatre, a continuous and totally involving soap opera. ‘CRASH: Homage to... [more]

Posted 12/1/08

The current exhibition of catalogues entitled Fama and Fortune Bulletin at 2nd Cannons is sexy. Partially because of the design: brown, recycled paper, soft covers with uniformed layout and matte pages. Somewhat because of their presentation: aligned on four white shelves with warm spotlights.  But mostly because of their content: every issue one or two artists are invited to design, write and format the contents of the publication. Albert Oehlen, Franz West, Martin Kippenberger, Frances Stark an... [more]
