In “Parasitic Gaps,” a group show curated by Miriam Katzeff, the artists Matthew Higgs, Margaret Lee, James Hoff, and Georgia Sagri explore a variety of ways that text can consolidate or destabilize meaning. Often playing with “the mating of separates,” many of the works present disparate objects and elements together in a single piece, such as a paperback book with a minimalist painting and a watermelon with a De Stijl chair. The juxtaposition of different contexts beco... [more]

Like a girl with facial tattoos and rainbow hair searching for a spoon in the ambassador’s kitchen, the pictures of a painter with a legacy of working outside the system can appear awkward in a blue chip gallery. The knee-jerk reaction is to presume the artist has gone soft, sold out, been absorbed at last by the main stream. In the case of Billy Childish—poet, novelist, musician, painter—from whom the elemental acid of punk rock’s primal ethos gushes forth geyser-like, the surprise is not that... [more]

“At Home/Not at Home” is really more like “At Gallery/At Museum” for those of us never invited for brunch or cocktails at the Eisenberg’s. Both the catalogue and the wall text are at pains to reference the collectors’ “unpreposessing” suburban house—where thousands of works by hundreds of artists perpetually knock elbows—but if you haven’t made it up to their place in Westchester, all this art has simply jumped from the commercial white space where you first saw it to the academic one y...

          Showdown, with an imagined exhibition soundtrack by the Electric Light Orchestra, is the title of Matthew Higgs’ first show at the Apartment gallery in Athens. The exhibition features found book covers that are matted and framed, the ubiquitous curator, critic and artist’s signature work. Detached from the book’s interior and spread out to reveal a geometry of shapes and color, they include the dents and yellowed pages that depict their age and tell their story. A collector and...
