A Boy Scout Jamboree At Subliminal Projects http://www.laimyours.com/46608/a-boy-scout-jamboree-at-subliminal-projects/ " Duane Paul’s huge sculpture of various colored, fragmented scouts have similar effects. Paul’s piece hints at a less overt theme in the show, one that gets outside of the organization’s anti-gay agenda: minorities in American boy scouts have only existed on the margins. His colorful and quietly confrontational figures hit every element of the show–rainbows, black bodies, whit... [more]

It’s leftover memories hauled off in a battered boxed, thin with water damage, to the local thrift store and dropped at the backdoor. An abandoned baby, lovingly clad in taffeta and enshrouded in a knit blanket, with nary a note. What, if anything, can be found in the kitsch of capitalism, the leftover detritus of a disposable culture, a transient society? What initial hopefulness and final dejection can be located in their battered bodies? Liz Craft’s excavation of what can be found in the lost-i... [more]

Today, as always, clowns and the spirit they represent are as vital to the maintenance of our humanity as the builders and the growers and the governors. - Richard Nixon, President of the United States of America, in proclaiming the first week of August 1971, as National Clown Week.

Typically, if one sees work that she/he likes, they are not likely to get a second chance to see such work again for quite some time, since the unspoken rule of our beloved galleries is to avoid anything that is not making its debut. I suspect, for this reason, the non-profit space White Columns inaugurated their Looking Back annual, three years ago. Each installment is selected by a NYC-based curator who gets to round together their favorite works seen about town in institutions, gallery setti... [more]
