As I walked from the busy rue Beaubourg down rue Rambuteau to Space Hair, I heard the discothèque music before I saw the sign. Space Hair is an institution in the gay neighborhood of the Marais, and although you will probably not see the vieilles d... [more]

  Stepping out of Galerie Dominique Fiat, go just a couple of steps and into the domain of the graceful Odile Ouizeman. Ms. Ouizeman's latest selected artist is Anne-Sophie Emard, whose large-format photographs of spaces and land are organized into diptychs or are featured alone. Emard is interested in manipulating the photograph further to employ the message or personality that she perceived from each landscape. The diptych presentation helps create the conversation that some landscapes m... [more]

Posted 5/18/09

Right now, the Marais is a veritable minefield of explosive, exciting art shows. Luckily for the pressed gallery-goer, the rue Coutures St Gervais has two such shows, right next door to each other. At the Galerie Dominique Fiat is "Borderland," a collection of 11 photographs by the artist Tania Mouraud. I was immediately struck by the painterly qualities of the photographs, whose soft earth colors create calm, atmospheric landscapes. No recognizable form or horizon creates the landscape, bu...

Posted 4/4/09

The current show at Sutton Lane Gallery, curated by art historian David Lewis, is a sampling of works by seven artists along the theme of an intellectual puzzle. Each work was chosen to be part of a search for truth, in the sophisticated language that is art. The installation at Sutton Lane Gallery is informed by a specific knowledge of the book La Vie mode d’emploi, by Perec, and therefore the show verges on being intellectually exclusive. However, prompted by the press release, th... [more]

Posted 4/4/09

On display now at Galerie Anne de Villepoix is the curious and intricate art by Angelo Filomeno, a show divided into three rooms. While walking through the first room, I realized that after looking at shapes like a melting skull with fangs embroidered by black thread onto a black background, I was both enthralled and disgusted. The art’s exploration of the body and its abjection, specifically the mutations of the body both imaginary and real, is both violent and revolting, but at the same t... [more]

          Ian Pedigo’s solo show of his new work, “The State of Before As Its Form” at Gallery Cardenas Bellanger, is a sure treat for anyone interested in Minimalist sculpture. Not only is half-owner Carlos Cardenas friendly and delightfully conversant in art historical and other possible references for the work of Pedigo, but the gallery is located in one of Paris’s more picturesque streets, rue Quincampoix, in the 4th arrondissement. Although Pedigo seems to have a barrage of found items at his disposal to make his scul... [more]

        If you are interested in trained, careful, and meticulous drawing, definitely check out Bernard Moninot’s solo show at dispay at Gallerie Catherine Putnam. Moninot’s methodical and painstaking exploration of shapes, line and space challenges the boundaries of what typically is done in work on paper. In the series Souffle, or Breath, 2008, Moninot experiments with the words “Here” and “Now” in dizzying compositions of varying shapes that recall funnels, trumpets, rope, and worktables.... [more]

      Damián Ortega’s installation at the Centre Pompidou, Field of Vision/Champ de vision reminds me of a playground. Despite the signs prohibiting physical touch, this viewer wanted to dive through the delicately and purposefully strung lines of plastic discs. Perhaps it was the kid inside me who likes to break rules, or just the inspiration of broken space, but there is something too perfect about the set-up that begs a little messing with. Ortega’s installation looks to be made from inexpensive mate... [more]

After seeing the exhibition America 1928, don’t hesitate to check out the permanent exhibition on the Bauhaus. To begin, the building itself is impressive in its international style combined with factory aesthetic. Inside, you get the full scoop on the Bauhaus. In his 1919 manifesto for the Bauhaus school, Walter Gropius wrote, “The ultimate goal of all art is the building!” Founded in 1919 in Weimar, the school faced exceeding criticism by neoconservatives and had to move three times.

The Robert Lebeck retrospective at the Martin-Gropius-Bau presents over 300 of the German photojournalist’s works from the fifties and sixties. Lebeck is known for his cool detachment and lack of sentimentality in capturing his subject, and in this show, his photographs are a probing study of German nationalism since the Second World War. In addition to photographs taken on assignment in Africa, Spain, and Italy, the show particularly underscores people in the arts and politics. Lebeck’s pho... [more]

Seventies, le choc de la photographie américaine showcases 320 works by major photographers from the seventies, presenting to a French audience the liberal, raunchy and sometimes shocking American culture from this era.

There, Walker Evans’ influential photographs of the American Depression dating from 193... [more]
