I saw David Wojnarowicz’s Fire in My Belly, 1987, the day before it was pulled from the exhibition "Hide/Seek" at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The exhibit itself has been touted by the gallery as “The first major museum exhibition to focus on sexual difference in the making of American portraiture.” Because of pressure from the Catholic League, and complaints from Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor (amongst others who haven’t actually seen the exhibition), the show... [more]

Embroiled in controversy—it's what you’d expect from an exhibition about gay portraiture at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.  In fact, it’s rather surprising that the controversy didn’t arise until a month after the show was open—just in time for World AIDS Day.  On November 30th, the Catholic League complained about David Wojnarowicz's 1987 video piece Fire in My Belly, a “vile video” that could be interpreted as nothing more than an attack on Christianity, all because o...

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]

Posted 10/12/09

With Moby-Dick, the Wattis presents the second of three shows rousting the spirits of great American literature. Although painted like a Nautica bedroom set with navy walls and white text, each room conjures the salty atmosphere of a heaving ship with alternately droning and ranting snippets from Orson Welles's recitation of Moby Dick. These elements (whale, walls, and Welles) attempt to interlace work from thirty-three international artists—no small feat. Of course, I don't envy the cu... [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]

Ascending the dark corporate stairwell one is greeted by the distant hum of a projector housed in the first of four sunlit rooms hosting the group show, Double Object. This exhibition was conceived as a one-day event last year and is restaged in the back gallery of Thomas Dane. Alongside, there are three adjoining rooms exhibiting new works by the original cast, and older pieces by artists whose work enters into the Double Object enquiry. Providing an immediate tenor to the show as its own Double,... [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]
