Posted 2/26/13

In 2013 Martin Kippenberger, the enfant terrible of the German art scene, would have celebrated his 60th birthday. On this occasion, Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin is dedicating a special exhibition to the artist, who died in 1997 due to an excessive life. The show characterizes Martin Kippenberger as an artist, whose work and life cannot be separated from one another, and as an artist, who is considered one of the most significant of his generation. After the last major Martin Kippenberger retros... [more]

Posted 8/19/11

Simply titled and smartly curated, Galerie Crone's Deutsch hosts an impressive roster showcasing some of the biggest names contributing to contemporary German art in the last fifty years. Amid the August wasteland of summer group shows, this exhibition stands out as intellectually complex and visually compelling look at German iconography. It's no secret that Germany has a complicated history. That being said, German national representations are not only delicate but potentially problematic when... [more]

Posted 11/1/10

Taking Place reintroduces the Stedelijk Museum by addressing its history, the spatial and temporal conditions of the unfinished building and the ways in which artists use, occupy and animate museum spaces. The historical, functional and architectural conditions of the museum are both subject and material for this special presentation of works by local, national and international contemporary artists, who range from well-known and established figures to emerging art...

Posted 8/10/10

For FischGrätenMelkStand – the final project at Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin – the artist John Bock has developed a masterful meta-structure within which he installs works by 63 artists. An eleven-meter-tall walk-in steel construction creates a range of spatial situations over four levels, linking the individual works into a kind of Gesamtkunstwerk, or total artwork. Unlike the classic white cube, this scenario offers the works on show anything but a neutral setting. Within a structure t... [more]

Posted 8/7/09

          When is a painting not a painting? An exhibition at Simon Lee poses this conundrum with a selection of enigmatic works by gallery artists. The premise of the show is found in the word accrochage, the principle of hanging or coupling works in the tradition of a summer exhibition. However this carries a further twist; on closer examination none of the paintings is a proper painting, in conventional terms of expressive handwork and composition. The show starts with the veteran conceptua... [more]

Posted 1/11/09

The Austrian Cultural Forum is a beautiful skinny sliver of a contemporary art building in midtown Manhattan. Its fluid floors include an exhibition space, a performance venue (mostly free programs), a massive library on Austrian art and culture, offices, and a penthouse for the Director.  Its current show is, but for one exception, not about artists gone wild, as the title may suggest, but in fact of artists providing institutional critique by creating ideal museum spaces that questioned social,...

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.

At first, it is somewhat hard to believe that The Problem Perspective exhibition at MOCA is a retrospective of one artist’s work. While Martin Kippenberger ceased to leave a medium untouched – his work ranges from sculpture to painting to books to illustrations – he did manage to work within the incredibly broad theme of “self-portraiture.” Upon entering Martin Kippenberger’s retrospective at MOCA, the viewer is greeted by a large installation of what initially appears to be birch wood – soon howe...
