Among the 103 participants in this year’s Whitney Biennial, the handful that have elicited the most speculation and skepticism are those known for producing not art objects but texts. In addition to publishing-oriented collectives, words take on a visual function in the poetry of Susan Howe, they form the structure of many of David Diao’s paintings and Gary Indiana’s sculptures. Artspace warned us to “Get ready to do some reading.” Carol Vogel, in her New York Times pre... [more]

ArtSlant editors Natalie Hegert, Joel Kuennen, and Charlie Schultz met up at Agra, an Indian restaurant on Lexington Avenue, to discuss the opening of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, its surprises, best in show, and disappointments. They touch on trends and themes of scale, archives, lists, dongs, and objectness—parsing the line between artwork and artifact. Charlie Schultz: I guess I’ll start by saying I found this year’s iteration of the [Whitney] Biennial to be far less crowded than in... [more]

By now both the New Museum’s Triennial and the Whitney Museum’s biennial have been open long enough for the critical voices of the popular press and blogosphere to have weighed in on the virtues and shortcomings of these highly anticipated exhibitions. I’ve been to both, though rather than add another idiosyncratic opinion to the heavily populated mix I decided to take a cue from the nature of the exhibition itself, and survey the critics. The nature of my looking wasn’t qualitative; I wasn’t too co... [more]

Two gold chains hang on steely colored pins. They fall perpendicularly, intersecting to form a cross, a compositional reference that is further bolstered by the small golden crucifix linked to the bottom-most tip. A few feet away, a milky marble-like slab rests upon half an egg shell, which sits atop three similar stones, atop an ever-so-slightly warped poster-sized sheet of paper. Mere inches above the egg-stone composition, a family of six porcelain pitchers each hold the protruding twig of a... [more]

  Character Generator, a group exhibition curated by The Kitchen’s Matthew Lyons, is a straightforward overview of connotations that text-based artworks may evoke. Employing language as raw substance, the included works play off deliberate omissions, unusual juxtapositions, and systematic restructuring.  Several of the participating artists create within the gap that forms when words are removed.  Shannon Ebner’s untitled black and white photograp...

Dave McKenzie describes the title for his current show, Screen Doors on Submarines, by saying that it makes about as much sense as America does right now, what with the economic and military situations that seem to go ‘up and down, up and down, up and down' endlessly and perhaps irrationally. Rather than shrug his shoulders at this perceived nonsense, McKenzie's work is engaged and elegant, embracing on all corners the feasible, irrational, unseemly and everyday. The concise selection of ob... [more]
