People in museums move like assholes. This dynamic may be little more than a distant memory for those privy to the luxury of sparsely-populated art spaces: via opening receptions, press previews, off-hours viewings organized by friends of friends, or just the good fortune of being free most Monday mornings. Unfortunately, when confronted with the work of an artist who seeks to interrogate, interrupt, obfuscate, or otherwise f*ck The Space of the Museum, privileged classes of museum-goers may be fo...

From the flash and swagger of Vegas, to the manicured, lamppost-lined Main Street of Disneyland, we are proffered up a regular cultural diet of distorted, exaggerated versions of reality. The hyperreal seeps into even the most mundane crannies of our existence: our newspapers, breakfast cereal, tennis shoes, and coupon-clippings. Everywhere you turn there is something to buy, sniff, gnaw on, or run your finger along the sides of that has that certain smack of the real, that kind of chewy, overripe... [more]

We had to ring the buzzer to get in. I hate ringing a buzzer to get into galleries. I prefer to walk in unannounced to spaces, free to slip out without saying a word. But most of the galleries in Berlin are in buildings you need to be buzzed into. A studious young man sat at the landing at the top of the first flight of stairs. He closed the small book he was reading, got up from his chair and stood in front of the door to the gallery. He asked us something in German. “Is this Esther Schipper gallery... [more]

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]

Taking its title from a Lawrence Weiner work, As Long As It Lasts comprises works that contemplate impermanence and mortality, often from a personalized, humanist point of view. There is nothing fussy or overly sophisticated about this one. It talks the talk and walks the walk.  The show opens with Maurizio Cattelan's simple photograph of a pen that has just run out of ink, then proceeds to two poetic films  by William Kentridge and Guido Van der Werve, respectively. The latt... [more]
