That day, the Yellow Emperor showed the poet his palace. They left behind, in long succession, the first terraces on the west which descend, like the steps of an almost measureless amphitheater, to a paradise or garden whose metal mirrors and intricate juniper hedges already prefigured the labyrinth. They lost themselves in it, gaily at first, as if condescending to play a game, but afterwards not without misgiving, for its straight avenues were subject to a curvature, ever so slight, but con...

Albert Oehlen at Corbett vs. Dempsey October 28th, 2011 - December 3rd, 2011
Posted 10/30/11

Painting is the zombie of the art world, and artists deal with this fact in two ways: they either run screaming towards other media, or embrace its exhausting tradition, accept the impossibility of killing it completely, and make work with the irreverent openness and plurality that it demands. Albert Oehlen has affection for the latter, having synthesized expressionism, abstraction, and collage with orphic, digital and typographic influences and appropriations in his long career. Emerging in the late 1970s as part of... [more]

Posted 8/19/11

Simply titled and smartly curated, Galerie Crone's Deutsch hosts an impressive roster showcasing some of the biggest names contributing to contemporary German art in the last fifty years. Amid the August wasteland of summer group shows, this exhibition stands out as intellectually complex and visually compelling look at German iconography. It's no secret that Germany has a complicated history. That being said, German national representations are not only delicate but potentially problematic when... [more]

Posted 12/14/10

In this group exhibition at Gerhardsen Gerner, twelve artists investigate contemporary attitudes toward nature.In their celebrated text "Dialektik der Aufklärung / Dialectic of Enlightenment” (1944), Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer write that “the fully enlightened Earth radiates disaster triumphant”. While this insight is now more than half a century old, it still rings true. We live in an age of disappearance: in a world with no blank spots left on the map, we are more likely to see somethi...

Albert Oehlen at Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris / ARC October 1st, 2009 - January 11th, 2010
Posted 1/11/10

With the Centre Pompidou having been closed due to continuing industrial disputes, the Albert Oehlen exhibition at the Musée de l'art Moderne de Paris was one of the only contemporary art exhibitions on in Paris over the holidays. While I wouldn’t rush to see it, it’s certainly a pleasant way to spend an afternoon; but I am not sure it is much more than that.I was excited at the prospect of seeing so much of Albert Oehlen’s work in one place. His works which sit at a crossroads between Am... [more]

  With the rise of punk subculture in the late 70's and early 80's, the Neue Wilde movement flashed through the art schools and studios of artists working in Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Austria and Switzerland.  Producing a neo-expressionistic revival of painting, and a reactionary stance to then-current practices in conceptual and minimalist genres, the Neue Wilde gave start to the careers of such luminaries as Martin Kippenberger, Jörg Immendorf, Rainer Fetting, Salomé (Wolfgang Ludwig Cihlarz),...

Posted 12/1/08

The current exhibition of catalogues entitled Fama and Fortune Bulletin at 2nd Cannons is sexy. Partially because of the design: brown, recycled paper, soft covers with uniformed layout and matte pages. Somewhat because of their presentation: aligned on four white shelves with warm spotlights.  But mostly because of their content: every issue one or two artists are invited to design, write and format the contents of the publication. Albert Oehlen, Franz West, Martin Kippenberger, Frances Stark an... [more]
