Art21 Guest Blog: Thea Liberty Nichols, Curator & Writer, Chicago Lisa Freiman February 18th, 2011  by Thea Liberty Nichols Lisa Freiman. Photograph by Adam Ames. “When I first came here, people said, ‘Why are you going to Indianapolis?’ I said, ‘I’m going to Indianapolis because it’s a huge opportunity.’ They answered, ‘What huge opportunity? There’s no contemporary art scene in Indianapolis.’ I said, ‘That’s the opportunity.’ Why go to a place where everything is done when you can g... [more]

Las Vegas Studio January 14th, 2011  by Thea Liberty Nichols For Art21 Blog “…We look backward at history and tradition to go forward; we can also look downward to go upward. And withholding judgment may be used as a tool to make later judgment more sensitive. This is a way of learning from everything.” — Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour, Learning from Las Vegas (Cambridge: MIT Press, 1977) Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown in Las Vegas, 1966 © Venturi, S...

Review: Derek Chan/Museum of Contemporary Art  
Posted 4/18/13

From Newcity Print Edition: Nov15, 2010 Review: Derek Chan/Museum of Contemporary Art Derek Chan, "Daily Practice," 2010. RECOMMENDED Derek Chan is no stranger to the “monastic residency”; at the invitation of Theaster Gates earlier this year, he performed one as part of the Whitney Biennal. For his current solo exhibition, however, he was not contained within a courtyard as he was at the Whitney, and instead headed West, embarking on a trip to the four corners. His travels are the fodder for this show and his tr... [more]

Preview: Jeff Zimmermann/Chicago Cultural Center  
Posted 4/18/13

From Newcity Print Edition: Oct18, 2010 Preview: Jeff Zimmermann/Chicago Cultural Center RECOMMENDED Europe’s Large Hadron Collider recently knocked Fermilab out of the number-one slot for having the largest particle accelerator in the world. Its job? To smash different types of particles into one another at about the speed of light in hopes of finding out what type of stuff the universe is made of. The notion that the tiniest imagined particle could hold the key to the entirety of o... [more]

From Newcity Print Edition: Reviews, profiles and news about art in Chicago Jul12, 2010 Review: John Baldessari/Museum of Contemporary Photography "Stonehenge (with Two Persons) Blue," 2005, Mixographia print on handmade paper RECOMMENDED Equal parts eye candy and brain-teaser, this gem of an exhibition spans roughly forty years of John Baldessari’s printmaking career.

From Newcity Print Edition: Reviews, profiles and news about art in Chicago Jun08, 2010 Portrait of the Artist: Diego Leclery Artist ProfilesAdd comments              “If I’m satisfied, there’s something wrong,” says Diego Leclery, reflecting on an art practice focused on his own self-identity and how to express, subvert, denigrate or indulge it. For his solo exhibition titled “The Natural,” now on view at Julius Caesar, Leclery hand-delivered postcards to advertise the show, allow... [more]

Portrait of the Artist: Carmen Price  
Posted 4/18/13

From Newcity Print Edition: Reviews, profiles and news about art in Chicago May24, 2010 Portrait of the Artist: Carmen Price "L.A. Claim," 2010, gouache on paper “These are the people I love,” remarks Carmen Price as we admire his ninety-eight panels of graphically embellished names of friends. The salon-style grid of drawings, like commemorative texts, are adorned faintly with pearlescent acrylic washes and cubed or loopy cursive lettering. Price traces his involvement in the arts back to grade school where he decorated classm... [more]

Posted 4/18/13

From Newcity Print Edition: Mar29, 2010 Review: Ed Paschke’s Women/Russell Bowman Art Advisory and Alan Koppel Gallery                   RECOMMENDED Ed Paschke’s legacy has had an incredibly prolific past several years—despite, or perhaps because of, his death in 2004 at the age of 65. Currently, a dual exhibition titled “Ed Paschke’s Women” is being shown at Russell Bowman Art Advisory and Alan Koppel Gallery, both in River North. Simultaneously, at Gagosian Gallery in New York, Paschke’s work is on... [more]
