Gretchen Bender at The Kitchen August 17th, 2013 - October 5th, 2013
Posted 9/16/13

Sadly having passed away nine years ago at age fifty-three, Gretchen Bender was an unsung member of the Pictures Generation and a pioneer of immersive video installations. Her work as a technologically avant-garde artist and as a commercial video editor maintained a complicated, prescient relationship with mass media. “Tracking the Thrill,” a retrospective of Bender’s career at the Kitchen, will hopefully give the oft overlooked artist the due she deserves. Bender’s best-known work may have bee... [more]

Doubling as a bookshop and event space for philosophy publisher Sequence Press, Miguel Abreu Gallery’s always had an ambitious engagement with philosophy. “Conspicuous Unusable,” Abreu’s latest show, takes the philosopher’s conception of the usability of material things as the starting point for a well-curated, minimalist-oriented group show. To Heidegger, material objects are made legible by our referring to both the "towards which" of their intended use and the "whe... [more]

Josh Tonsfeldt at Simon Preston Gallery April 24th, 2013 - June 2nd, 2013
Posted 5/20/13

As New York wilts under May’s overripe humidity, Simon Preston Gallery’s latest show carries an appropriately strong whiff of decay. A solo exhibition by Josh Tonsfeldt, the eponymous show is split between Simon Preston and GalerieVidalCuglietta, in Brussels.

Posted 5/9/13

This year’s Frieze New York fair sees the Projects portion of its programming celebrating FOOD, the historic restaurant-artwork hybrid most associated with artist Gordon Matta-Clark. While the Projects’ inaugural theme was turning Randall’s Island into a “fantasy world,” according to curator Cecilia Alemani, its second year focuses on “basic actions such as eating, drinking, speaking and praying… [engaging] the ritualistic dimension of the fair and the unique landscape of the island.” FOOD fits ra...
