Horizontals, verticals, and some disciplined curves, squares and angles offset by relentless electrical streetlights. The wall with forty vintage photographs marking the start of The Rush and Calm, Moments in the City looks like an architect’s drawing table. Karl Hugo Schmölz’s 1950s documentation of German cinemas, orchestra houses, car dealerships, and shopping malls clearly illustrates the strong focus on hardware during the post-war Reconstruction period. They show the city as... [more]

I grew up in Miami in the 1980s. “Beach” has a very distinct meaning for me: body oil, potato chips, neon smears of zinc oxide. Basically, a hazy public square veneered with general tackiness. Apparently, however, there are other kinds of beaches: isolated and clean; rocky and Soviet; grassy and suited to an Edith Wharton-style romance (white linen, straw hats, picnic baskets devoid of Pringles). All are on display, in works that represent more than 100 years of photographic processes and represen... [more]

Epstein’s latest photographs, American Power, big, shiny and new, represent the way that “power” in its most extreme and varied forms, is threaded through the very fabric of daily life in the contemporary US.

  As the summer season draws to a close, dragging in the heat, dragging down the sun a few minutes earlier, it seems that the art market is also dragging.  All’s certainly quiet on the Western Front.  Aside from a few rumbling U-Hauls making trips to and from gargantuan storage facilities, or the intermittent shuffle of a runner’s feet, the streets of Chelsea are silent.  The cobblestones pave what seems a deserted movie set; hot breeze whips fallen fliers against the frosted sea-green doors of th...
