An Inquisitive Eye provides visitors an occasion to view significant prints and printed books from the museum’s permanent collection which numbers over ten thousand, and spans the history of printmaking from 1493 to the present. Prints possess a multi-valent nature—both the subject and technique embodied in an image must be considered on equal footing, one not privileged over the other. The idea expressed on paper depends upon the printer’s abilities and particular materials to realize successfully... [more]

Agnes Martin at Pace Gallery - 25th St. September 16th, 2011 - October 29th, 2011
Posted 10/23/11

Agnes Martin, despite her asceticism, chronicled the 1980s with startling acuity. At Pace’s “The ‘80s: The Grey Paintings,” her work is simultaneously distant from the trends of the decade and impeccably representative of the world at that time. Martin dismissively declared she wanted nothing to do with the fashionable young people showing in hip galleries downtown. She remained far from downtown (far from New York all together) and as a stalwart abstractionist nonetheless captured the era’s so... [more]

  The Minimal Gesture analyses the continuing influence of Abstract Expressionism in contemporary painting, and its intersection with the major movements that followed that period, in particular Minimalism. A large canvas by Agnes Martin, who considered herself an Abstract Expressionist – although her work is closely aligned with Minimalism – consists of faint, hand-ruled graphite lines on an off-white background. The composition is radically pared down, yet full of a sense of imperfection... [more]

Case Studies from the Bureau of Contemporary Art will present a number of thematic points of entry into the New Mexico Museum of Art’s contemporary collection. A selections show that includes ceramics, paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture and video, Case Studies considers the disparate hubs of war, figuration, seriality, materiality, and the containment of nature, among other themes, as part of the constellation of work that constitutes the contemporary collection under the fictitious guis...

I saw David Wojnarowicz’s Fire in My Belly, 1987, the day before it was pulled from the exhibition "Hide/Seek" at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The exhibit itself has been touted by the gallery as “The first major museum exhibition to focus on sexual difference in the making of American portraiture.” Because of pressure from the Catholic League, and complaints from Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor (amongst others who haven’t actually seen the exhibition), the show... [more]

Embroiled in controversy—it's what you’d expect from an exhibition about gay portraiture at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.  In fact, it’s rather surprising that the controversy didn’t arise until a month after the show was open—just in time for World AIDS Day.  On November 30th, the Catholic League complained about David Wojnarowicz's 1987 video piece Fire in My Belly, a “vile video” that could be interpreted as nothing more than an attack on Christianity, all because o...

Introduction to Fisher Collection and the 75th Anniversary Exhibit at SFMOMA Last Saturday, I visited San Francisco Modern Art Museum for the Calder to Warhol: Introducing the Fisher Collection exhibit. There are 160 pieces from the 1,000 plus Fisher Colletions on display. There were many impressive works and the profile and prestige of SFMOMA will increase dramatically once a new wing is build for this incredibly rich modern art collection.Several of my favorite artists are included and I...

Many in the art world are bemoaning the gradual extinction of the museum as a public institution, fearing its replacement by flashy private vanity projects that house even flashier collections funded by a seemingly endless influx of cash. And even those public institutions left standing are swiftly altering their operational models, shifting towards slicker, privatized programming to attract all the foot traffic that money can buy (the recent Dakis exhibition at the New Museum, for inst...
