This is a funny show, really. Over there, scattered along the main wall, a conversation between analyst and analysand traces a kind of erratic through-line around an idiosyncratically hung collection of diverse works, ranging from an Yves Tanguy knock-off and a Frank Stella lithograph to more recent pieces (Wade Guyton, Carol Bove, and Louise Lawler to name a few) with little regard for chronology. At times, the patient's breakthrough seems to be on the tip of his tongue, as he dredges through m... [more]

Louise Lawler at Metro Pictures May 6th, 2011 - June 11th, 2011
Posted 5/28/11

The strength of Louise Lawler’s current show of photographic images at Metro Pictures lies in their scale and placement. “Fitting” is how I would imagine a zine or a website such as Tumblr to look if it were made three-dimensional: streamlined, cool, and a lot of white space. Duchamp’s museum-in-a-box comes to mind, but with Lawler, the photographs on view are not images of her own art, but copies of other people’s art. Or is it not that simple? These photographs are hers after all. They are blow... [more]

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...

The theme of the Walker Art Center’s exhibition “The Quick and the Dead” got personal, quickly, when I observed that an On Kawara date painting near the entry was the same date as an uncle’s birthday. Made by Kawara to mark the passage of time, the ongoing series implies its own end in the artist’s death, just as birthdays imply to many of us that there are only so many left. This exhibition announces its’ intentions to examine The Big Questions of Life at the outset in the title, but... [more]

  The Pictures Generation, 1974–1984 is the first major museum exhibition to focus on a highly influential group of somewhat affiliated artists that were one of the first generations raised with popular television and an abundance of disposable products. This upbringing, coupled with the rising popularity of M.F.A. academic training that often discussed Barthian post-structuralism, produced a generation of artists wanting to deconstruct visual culture by appropriating its photograp...

For REGIFT New York artist and Swiss Institute Director John Miller chose the works and commissioned a total of 25 artists. The artists handle the subject of gift exchange in its many arrays including appropriation, value, potlatch (recirculation) and reciprocity. It is a very intriguing art show, with many multi- layered background stories. As objects, many of the artworks summon the surreal, existing as darling momentos generously on view for the public.Jamie Isenstein has bestowed props which a TV... [more]
