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....

“They Knew What They Wanted” invokes something in-between a hit-man’s overture and a ‘50s girl-group’s jukebox breakup. But instead the phrase serves as the title of an exhibition that spans four commercial galleries in San Francisco: Altman Siegel, John Berggruen, Fraenkel, and Ratio 3. Each gallery asked a different artist from their roster to select the works from the backrooms, storage shelves, and flat files of all four spaces, yet the results are posited as a single exhibition.

In an era where our relationship with books seems to be drifting away, where most of reading has become mechanistic and a means of acquiring information and conditioned by the quickness of the ever-changing technology, the Art of the Artist Book takes us on an other-worldly journey to a place where the book is treated as a precious and aesthetic focal point for sharing intimate feelings, inspiration, dreams, social commentary and memory. The artwork in this exhibit is excitingly diverse in terms... [more]

Girls’ Club in Fort Lauderdale presents Set to Manual, an opinionated look at artworks characterized by intense personal manufacture. Works by more than twenty-five artists range from hand-painted animation and hand-altered 16mm film, to pricked paper drawings and artists’ books, from free-wheeling collage and assemblage to site-specific installation and more. The works on view in Set to Manual were developed and refined by the artists’ hand at every stage of creation. Lavish investment in each wo... [more]

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...

In addition to the blockbuster exhibit currently at MOMA, curator Joachim Pissarro, along with Hunter MA students Mara Hoberman and Julia Moreno, organized a companion show to his Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night  that plays off our beloved Dutch Post-Impressionist’s fascination with the night. To:Night - Contemporary Representations of the Night fills both Hunter’s sprawling Times Square Gallery and the college’s more elegant, midtown exhibition space, with works by over 40 international c...

Tragedy on the Road: Art Institute's painting slashed  
by
6/9/08

A disgruntled security guard slashed Vija Celmin's Night Sky #2 at the Carnegie Museum of Art, temporarily on loan from the Art Institute of Chicago. Apparently he didn't like it. The Tribune was able to reach Celmins in New York about the incident, who commented: "These kinds of things happen all over the world in various museums," she said. "People do these things. I have no idea why." What a fantastic moment of zen there. From Charles Storch at the Chicago Tribune, read it here. [more]
