It was afternoon. In Copenhagen. A charming, too-handsome-for-words mutual acquaintance relayed the news that Denmark had been crowned the richest country in the EU. I couldn’t vouch for this, but its capital appeared to be the most sustainable of all the conscientiously green cities I’d visited in northern Europe. Of course I wasn’t travelling all the way from America to Scandinavia for wind farms, organic elderberry juice, or even the first-time thrill of ordering drinks at an honest-to-God Ice Bar....

When you are cremated, you aren’t actually reduced to ash. After the body has been incinerated dry bone fragments remain, which are ground up into dust. Sandwiched between two lens-shaped pieces of glass on a small pedestal is a group of what appears to be shards of coral, almost like a decoration you’d see on someone’s coffee table. These are actually human remains presented as a sculpture. In addition to this is another incarnation of the piece. Human Dust (1969), by Agnes Denes consists of two photograph... [more]

Posted 8/27/11

This themed exhibition is dedicated to the artistic transfer of photographically produced images in the medium of printmaking. The beginnings of this trend lie in the 1960s and the era of Pop Art. The silkscreen print was one of the first printmaking media to use photographic templates. This was quickly followed by offset lithographic printing, which saw another 'trivial' print medium being used to create artistic reproductions. Parallel to this, traditional printing processes such as etching, photogra... [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 1/9/11

The Rubell Family Collection is housed in a modified, clearly marked former Drug Enforcement warehouse that was once a storehouse for confiscated narcotics straight out of Miami Vice. With low slung white couches and a sleek outdoor courtyard that could easily be found on South Beach, it lacks the rough industrial aura of the Margulies Collection, but presents a contemporary array of works with a personalized edge. At a mere 40,000-something square feet, it’s more manageable than its humongous... [more]

      Despite the sweltering heat, April has not been so cruel to Calcutta after all.  Some of the best works of the legendary Sigmar Polke are showing at the CIMA Art Gallery in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut.  The title of the show, “Music from an Unknown Source,” is borrowed from the caption of a Polke painting.  The show affords Calcutta the opportunity to view from up-close, not just Polke’s art, but also the politics that he either sought to promote or counter through his works. Sigm... [more]

      Kim Light moved into Maloney Fine Art's space, and in their first venture together they have mounted a group show, Blue Blue.  The group of artists is diverse, but the works are tied together by, you guessed it, the color blue.  In such a small space, this is actually a good approach to a group show.  It's hung salon style, works stacked on top of each other, creating a patchwork of sorts.  Sure, the pieces distract from each other and there isn't much space to really step back and look at, fo...

It replaces, if you wish, what other Literary Schools call Symbolism, Romanticism. It could be another "ism", so to speak. I don't en... [more]

Sigmar Polke’s show of paintings and photographs at Patrick Painter’s Bergamot Station gallery comments deeply on Polke’s use of material. As part of his long career, Polke has made a wide variety of work ranging from figurative, to political, to abstract shapes and forms. What is always evident though, and what makes his work cohesive is his interest in process. This exhibition portrays that interest by placing different, but related, bodies of work together.The exhibition is split between the east and west spa... [more]
