Posted 8/22/11

It may be true, as OHWOW's press release breathlessly claims, that theirs is “a group exhibition distinct of a decade and definitive of era,” but if so, it's an era that, thus defined, is distinguished mainly by its forgettability. Poorly curated, with equally little to offer to fans of the nine artists represented in the show as to the uninitiated, Post 9/11 fails to make the case for the significance of the ten or so post-millennial years of New York art-making with which it's concerned.The...

Agathe Snow's work balances visions of apocalypse and entropic decay with an earnest faith in the redemptive power of human ingenuity and community. Her performances, ranging from carnivalesque banquets to her legendary dance marathons, operate as scenarios for uninhibited social exchange, always enacted with a fierce conceptual commitment. Performative elements and elaborate fictions also underpin Snow’s sculptural installations, which she fashions from an exuberant array of debris... [more]

          Just a few blocks away, check out this playful, exuberant group show on view at Canada gallery.  Entitled Spaced Out / On Time, the show's flyer is a Venn diagram (remember those?) where all the artists names fall in the space somewhere between "Spaced Out" and "On Time", somewhere between slapdash and punctilious, sloppy and precise.  Though quite a broad categorization curatorially speaking, it's an apt title for this intergenerational showcase.Standouts of the show are Katherine Bernhardt's...

    Abstract America: New Paintings and Sculpture is not for me, but I have to admit that the Saatchi Gallery’s done a phenomenal job gathering up artwork by the biggest and brightest in contemporary American abstract artists.  As this was my first visit to Saatchi’s swanky digs in Chelsea, I must also mention that the gallery is phenomenal – perhaps even the best venue for viewing art that I’ve ever come across.  Many of the works in the exhibition seemed too clever for my taste, but the few...

New York is difficult to fence in. It's offensively arrogant and perplexingly tolerant. Erotically alluring and nauseating repulsive. An oxygen tank for thoughts, and quicksand for illusions. Sentimental Samaritan and merciless lyncher. Empty talk at predictable receptions, and genuine interest in unlikely situations. Voluptuous muse, and flat canvas. Cool business card, target oriented CV, brief acquaintance, entertaining fuck, miserable marriage, harmonic partnership and lifelong frien... [more]

Top Ten:1. Tino Sehgal: Marian Goodman Gallery. I often see shows I don’t like but this was the only show I’ve ever seen that didn’t like me! Last winter Tino Sehgal had performers stand in the rear room of this gallery and discuss art and philosophy. Viewers were acknowledged as they entered and occasionally included in conversations. After answering one of the performers he basically upbraided me. I was horrified, mortified and thrilled. Sehgal has taken "relational esthetics" to a whole new leve... [more]

On the heels of his Schmagoo Paintings exhibition, Joe Bradley spent the last month curating Peanut Gallery, a new group show of what he calls "funny, intimately scaled pieces made of humble materials" for The Journal Gallery. "There's a heckler vibe to a lot of the work," says Bradley, who's assembled everything from a Miles Davis portrait by Keith Mayerson and a Eunice Kim installation of a cardboard robot face (with red and blue lightbulb eyes) to one of Dan Colen's bubble-gum-enhanced canvase...
