Horizontals, verticals, and some disciplined curves, squares and angles offset by relentless electrical streetlights. The wall with forty vintage photographs marking the start of The Rush and Calm, Moments in the City looks like an architect’s drawing table. Karl Hugo Schmölz’s 1950s documentation of German cinemas, orchestra houses, car dealerships, and shopping malls clearly illustrates the strong focus on hardware during the post-war Reconstruction period. They show the city as... [more]

Posted 7/22/12

When Diane Arbus’ photographs were first exhibited to the public they were received as shocking and transgressive, but now fifty years later, her stunning photographs are internationally recognized images. The iconic portraits she captured of nudists, transvestites, circus performers, the mentally handicapped, and other outcasts of society are no longer taboo; instead these images represent nostalgia for a particular era coupled with an unconventional lifestyle. The Martin-Gropius-Bau is now ex... [more]

Hauntology is essentially the science of spooking. Jacques Derrida first coined the word in 1993 in the book Spectres of Marx. He used the term to illustrate how communism’s failed Utopian ideals haunt capitalist society in a way that not only upsets the easy progression of time, but also accommodates a radical critique of the present. In more apolitical terms, the “persistence of a present past” also seems so fundamental to the concept of a museum, the cannon of art history, and th... [more]

“They Knew What They Wanted” invokes something in-between a hit-man’s overture and a ‘50s girl-group’s jukebox breakup. But instead the phrase serves as the title of an exhibition that spans four commercial galleries in San Francisco: Altman Siegel, John Berggruen, Fraenkel, and Ratio 3. Each gallery asked a different artist from their roster to select the works from the backrooms, storage shelves, and flat files of all four spaces, yet the results are posited as a single exhibition.

      The premise of Christ in a lobby, and Other Unknown or Almost Unknown Works, currently on view at Fraenkel Gallery certainly resonates with the circumstantial awkwardness of some of Diane Arbus’ photographs. In 1976, Robert Gober made an untitled still-life that included an Arbus catalogue—this combined with some offhand remarks regarding the late photographer’s possible influence (which may or may not be as important as his dog’s or an anonymous mugger’s) was enough to warrant an invitat...

  As the summer season draws to a close, dragging in the heat, dragging down the sun a few minutes earlier, it seems that the art market is also dragging.  All’s certainly quiet on the Western Front.  Aside from a few rumbling U-Hauls making trips to and from gargantuan storage facilities, or the intermittent shuffle of a runner’s feet, the streets of Chelsea are silent.  The cobblestones pave what seems a deserted movie set; hot breeze whips fallen fliers against the frosted sea-green doors of th...

Seventies, le choc de la photographie américaine showcases 320 works by major photographers from the seventies, presenting to a French audience the liberal, raunchy and sometimes shocking American culture from this era. The so-called “choc/shock” begins with one room devoted to the “pioneers,” whose socially committed photographs reveals raw, unsophisticated edges of American culture during the 1930s. There, Walker Evans’ influential photographs of the American Depression dating from 193... [more]
