I've become increasingly aware of how people find negative reviews so much more entertaining than positive reviews, and so I'm about to let everyone down. This is a really great show, and an unusual one, and interesting for lots of different reasons; but really one main one. It's also worth saying that the title/name of the exhibition really is fitting for the experience of seeing the show. The big main thing to say is it's a curated show, although Jens Hoffmann prefers the tag 'exhibition maker' t... [more]

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]

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....

Between 1951 and 1965 René Magritte published a series of poems, illustrations, photographs, short stories, and theoretical essays in a journal he called La Carte d’Après Nature.  Translated as The Postcard of Nature, this publication was a diverse assortment of concepts, information, and artistic ephemera that had been pulled from various eras in history.  Though the subject matter was often disparate, every piece related to the whole by way of Magritte’s dreamy train of thought. Curated by Thoma... [more]

          One of the charms and curses of living in London is the amount of tourists that flood the city on a day-to-day basis. One cannot move from point a to b without having to navigate an obstacle course of rolling suitcases, slow walking visitors 'taking in the scenery', and -- worst of all -- the sudden-stop amateur photographers. These ‘types’ can be recognized quickly through the gigantic SLR cameras around their necks and their tendency to short stop the entire population of London... [more]

SFMOMA’s sprawling new photography survey, Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera Since 1870 turns the high powered gaze of the camera onto itself, exploring over a century of peeping, spying, monitoring, snooping and all other forms of illicit looking facilitated by the handy-dandy technology of the lens. It’s an impressively researched archive of images that is as prescient as it might be paranoid. And like most brilliant exhibits, it elaborates on a simple historical premi... [more]

The 2010 SITE biennial opened with the press conference, curators spoke about the exhibition, using words like "quintessential," and "magical."  My expectations for the 2010 biennial grew.  Raising questions about our physical bodies in relation to the advent of technology, the curators call on historical and theatrical references while focusing on the handcraft of video.  Of course, handmade and video seem to be a contradiction in terms, especially from the viewpoint of the famed philosopher Wa...

Coming from a bright spring day on the South Bank where weekend visitors enjoy the street performers and living statues, and ride the fun fair carousel, the mood of light hearted reverie is echoed by Mark Wallinger’s idiosyncratic collection. Entitled The Russian Linesman from a notorious 1966 football match decision, the show draws on disparate sources ranging from Albrecht Dűrer to Fred Sandback, from a three millennia old Sphinx  to  fearful unedited news footage of the recent civil war i...
