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....

In terms of this exhibition's parameters, the subtitle says it all. However, when it comes to the quality of the work on view, that's another story entirely. I should probably disclose upfront that I have never studied the French language and haven't had much prior familiarity with the work of contemporary French artists. However if this mish-mash of a selection is representative, it doesn't seem that I have been missing a whole lot. To be sure, there are some excellent standouts – most notably... [more]

Posted 7/4/10

Summer is known for its mass weekend exodus of metropolitan art viewers and influx of New York CityPass-toting tourists. Galleries and museums tend to drag out everything but the kitchen sink from June to August, dusting off works from basement vaults and permanent collections and mounting crowd-pleasing group shows more eclectic than those from the regular season. The result can be refreshing, haphazard, banal, idiosyncratic or cutting edge. Haunted, Contemporary Photography/Video/P... [more]

Sophie Calle at Whitechapel Gallery October 16th, 2009 - January 3rd, 2010
Posted 11/29/09

Sophie Calle’s first UK retrospective is an epic feat of emotional engineering.  Her work is packed with humour, heartbreak, and the frustrations of life, and the viewer has little choice but to experience all of these as they engage with the pieces on display.  The show spreads over two floors of the Whitechapel Gallery; the ground floor has been completely taken over by Calle’s English version of Take Care of Yourself, whilst two rooms on the second floor house smaller but equally po...

Sophie Calle at Gemini G.E.L. October 11th, 2009 - November 30th, 2009
Posted 10/12/09

Sophie Calle’s work is based on two principles: first, an urgent desire to understand other people and second, the ultimate revelation that the fulfillment of this desire may be impossible. Calle’s art does not like secrets and even the most trivial, ordinary encounters receive painstaking analysis. Her 2007 book Take Care of Yourself, for instance, starts with letter she received from a lover, breaking off their relationship. In an attempt to resolve the pain and doubt she felt, she an...

Posted 3/28/09

      Haunch of Venison’s first show at Burlington Gardens is a spectacular one—not only for the chance to check out the gallery’s new digs—but for the chance to experience contemporary art through an anthropological eye. It is a group show of epic proportions, featuring eleven themed rooms and works in almost every nook and cranny of the building—in the entrance hall, on the landing and even hanging from the ceiling above the double staircase.     It is in the tradition of collectors l...

Posted 2/19/09

When you have an exhibition co-curated by two university professors (and one gallery director) things get a bit academic; texts reach further beyond the physical objects to which they are bound to and new catch phrases like “damaged romanticism” and “aftermath aesthetic” are wielded in hopes of coining a new epochal nomenclature. But when one takes the didactic texts and curatorial framing of Damaged Romanticism: A Mirror of Modern Emotion with a grain of salt, one can better enjoy this almost mus... [more]

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]

Posted 12/29/08

  There's something undeniably, seductively American about the concept of the road trip. The phrase necessarily conjures images of vast expanses of land, endless open roads, lonely pit-stop diners, and garish neon motel signs forever winking VACANT into the night—images all uniquely American. It's no wonder; qualities inherited from our pioneering predecessors—a (sub)conscious desire to embrace uncertainty, pursue possibility, seek the unknown, and, of course, to be free—find perfect expression...

Borrowing its title from the historic speech given by vice president Dick Cheney in the wake of 9/11, where he referred to the increased security and surveillance as "the new normalcy" of contemporary life, this exhibition features the work of thirteen artists that touch upon a number of issues regarding the shrinking boundaries between private and public spheres. Though this theme has been well e... [more]
