The title of the exhibition explains it all; it’s a sculpture show. The label on the tin did not lie and we have been served exactly what is expected with The Shape of Things to Come. In this regard it was both strangely satisfying -- reassuring myself of what I know as contemporary sculpture, and slightly disappointing -- nothing surprised me into reevaluating sculpture, objecthood, installation. Though I know that the trajectory of art parameters do not change overnight, if this exhibition is a repr... [more]

Posted 11/8/09

    From October 2009 until Summer 2010, Witte de With is presenting an in depth study on the theme of Morality. The project includes a series of group exhibitions, performances, films, gallery “interventions”, lectures and discussions, a book, and an interactive website. A couple of weeks ago I visited Acts I and II of this project. It has been on my mind since then – yesterday I described something as “morally reprehensible” and immediately rebuked myself for such thoughtless invocation of th... [more]

Posted 10/12/09

With Moby-Dick, the Wattis presents the second of three shows rousting the spirits of great American literature. Although painted like a Nautica bedroom set with navy walls and white text, each room conjures the salty atmosphere of a heaving ship with alternately droning and ranting snippets from Orson Welles's recitation of Moby Dick. These elements (whale, walls, and Welles) attempt to interlace work from thirty-three international artists—no small feat. Of course, I don't envy the cu... [more]

The theme of the Walker Art Center’s exhibition “The Quick and the Dead” got personal, quickly, when I observed that an On Kawara date painting near the entry was the same date as an uncle’s birthday. Made by Kawara to mark the passage of time, the ongoing series implies its own end in the artist’s death, just as birthdays imply to many of us that there are only so many left. This exhibition announces its’ intentions to examine The Big Questions of Life at the outset in the title, but... [more]

22 Hot Air Balloon   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Kris Martin at Johann König March 14th, 2009 - April 25th, 2009
Posted 4/4/09

      For his second solo exhibition at Johann König, Berlin, the Belgian artist Kris Martin has installed a hot air balloon in the gallery, entirely dissolving the architecture. As if ready for launching, the balloon and basket are lying on the floor. In the main space ventilators blow up the balloon until the subtly flittering fabric touches the walls. A surreal effect takes place as the visitors walk into the room through the balloon's opening, as if entering a whale's stomach.In this way,... [more]

Posted 9/19/08

  I must admit that I did not make it to the "Passengers" exhibit that ran at CCA's Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art from September of last year through this August. However, from its press description, it seems that the new incarnation of the show, "The Exhibition Formerly Known as Passengers," implements the same format and its is premise not much different from its predecessor. The show includes the work of 12 artists, 11 of which are exhibited in a group show, which spans the perime...
