I've become increasingly aware of how people find negative reviews so much more entertaining than positive reviews, and so I'm about to let everyone down. This is a really great show, and an unusual one, and interesting for lots of different reasons; but really one main one. It's also worth saying that the title/name of the exhibition really is fitting for the experience of seeing the show. The big main thing to say is it's a curated show, although Jens Hoffmann prefers the tag 'exhibition maker' t... [more]

    At the turn of the last century everybody was saying photography killed painting. Now it seems photography has killed itself in an effort to be more like painting. The first time around the killing was all about representation and which medium was better suited to depict the physical world. Painting lost and went abstract. The second killing is all about process, and if there was blood to be shed, it would be all over the Robert and Joyce Menschel Photography Gallery where New Photography is on... [more]

For those familiar with the practices of Walead Beshty, Karl Haendel, and Patrick Hill, grouping them together in an exhibition may seem a little unexpected at first. Play with Your Own Marbles, currently on view at Noma Gallery in San Francisco, presents the work of these three Los Angeles-based artists in, if nothing else, a formally handsome show. Though cleverly clustered in a fashion reminiscent of photographer Wolfgang Tillmans' installations (a method Haendel also plays with in his own i... [more]

      On the second floor of Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) is “Elements of Photography,” curated by Curatorial Assistant Michael Green.  This area of the MCA is usually reserved for smaller, “focus” type of shows as befits the minimal square footage of that gallery and this exhibition follows that trend.  Pulled from the museum’s permanent collection, the photographs on display, “focus on the elemental materials of nature: light and water. [Which are] also the fundamental elements... [more]

It has been a rough start to the new millennium, and sadly art survey shows have failed to reflect the context in which art makers and viewers live. Thankfully Lauri Firstenberg of LAXART has remedied the disconnect with the 2008 California Biennial. Before you walk in the door, Sam Durant's banners (in English and Spanish) hijack the OC's civic-boosterism-via-banner-blight, by reminding residents that their comfortable homes were built by the sweat of an undocumented workforce, on a piece of...

Since the turn of this century, Walead Beshty has been putting the medium of photography into the service of various social and political critiques, with consumerism chief among his targets. In series like “The Phenomenology of Shopping,” 2001-2003, which depicts Beshty variously fondling, inhabiting, and becoming one with everyday commodity displays, the fact of photographic capture seems to verify and seal the literalness of the artist’s critical act. In this work, the conceptual rigor of the image’s... [more]
