The U.S./Mexican border, as much as it is a physical structure, is also an active force dividing, not just two nations, but socio-political and economic identities. At least this contention provides much of the impetus behind Tracing the Unseen Boarder, a group show now at La MaMa La Galleria. Centering its lens around the all too visualized, but rarely seen border that structures the lives of countless people, the exhibit provides a penetrating contemplation on the pervasive but rarely spoken c...

Cover Letter is Mario Garcia Torres’ not entirely sardonic plea to be named the director of the Kunsthalle Bern. This is in fact the very letter he sent the institution in an attempt to convince them of his merits, whose mainstay is the fact that his art deals in an investigation of institutional frames and the necessary conditions for the display of artwork. “I have persistently thought about,” goes his plea, “and sometimes experienced, the meanings and political implications behind the ways art is...

The bridge that spans the divide between decoration and art, to the frustration of some, can often times be unstable. Yet it is within this expanse that Yuichi Higashionna operates, carving out a practice that incorporates painting, sculpture, and installation on equal footing. If one were seeking historical precedents for Higashionna’s practice one might point to the Bauhaus, or perhaps more accurately to the De Stijl movement, which took Modrian's paintings as a paragon, and sought to build a...

A wavering electronic synthetic hum pervades Ben Rubin’s Vectors. The source of this strangely unearthly sound is a set of five oscilloscopes that display, in succession, an image of all fifty US states. These sounds, which are simultaneously being fed to the oscilloscopes, generate the outline of each state’s boarder. Rubin subtly interferes with each drone by adding small irregularities, which in turn result in slight tremors and the general disturbance of the oscilloscopes’ images. State Baundarie... [more]

 Eyebeam Art and Technology Center540 W 21st St. New York, NY 10001   New concepts and emerging technologies have always had a significant effect on art, a fact that became almost endemic in the twentieth century. Whether it’s the emergence of cinema, video, or the internet, technology has become increasingly integral to artistic production. The Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, a non-for-profit space in Chelsea, is dedicated to exploring the continuously evolving relationship of contemporary art... [more]

Deborah Luster at Jack Shainman Gallery 20th Street January 6th, 2011 - February 5th, 2011
Posted 1/9/11

Deborah Luster's photographs are a kind of search. More properly, one might even call it  an investigation. Don’t get the wrong idea; her manner of probing is nowhere close to scientific in nature or ambition. Despite first appearances these pictures are far too moody, and she’s way too attached to her subject for them to be labeled objective. The mood conveyed leans toward the noirish, though perhaps this  invokes a camp sensibility, and there’s none of that here. But what is the Noir if not the... [more]

Antonio Caballero at Sikkema Jenkins & Co December 10th, 2010 - January 22nd, 2011
Posted 1/9/11

Antonio Caballero’s photographs are melodrama at its best. His pictures are taken from narrative sequences that originally made up fotonovellas (“small graphic novels similar to comic books with storyboard format and dialogue bubbles”). As per their original purpose as a kind of printed analogue to telenovelas most of these pictures retain more than a hint of escapism, yet with a highly acute visual sensibility. Seeing that Caballero’s photographs were taken in the early sixties and seventies,... [more]

          They seem like voids, as though a cavity had mysteriously opened to reveal picturesque landscapes dwelling beneath the urban fabric. These minute paintings cohabit the surfaces on various urbanscapes along with anonymous graffiti and random detritus. What can only be called the preciousness of these painstakingly rendered ideal sceneries recall a certain cliché. They might make you think of the idyllic landscapes one is likely to encounter in the gallery of a suburban shopping mall.... [more]

The movie opens with Yukitomo contemplating his future ship; he’s in the middle of a colonnade that seems to recede endlessly towards an infinitesimal point in the background. The architecture is clean, rectangular, and modular. “Is this unique?” Yukitomo asks, “Or from an assembly line? Are there others just like it? Do we see the hand, the care in every aspect? Do we need to see the inside or just the exterior?” So begins Andy Graydon’s vicarious spatial, temporal, and philosophi... [more]
