Knowing nothing about the TV show that provides the inspiration for this exhibition—and not really caring to learn more—I might suggest that the resonance of “Lost,” as theme, has at least as much to do here with the space of the Barnsdall itself. Passing from the entrance hall to the center of the exhibition area, one inevitably pauses, slightly disoriented, and wonders whether to go to the right or the left. The choice, in the end, matters little—either way, one enters an unaccountably labyri... [more]

An Inquisitive Eye provides visitors an occasion to view significant prints and printed books from the museum’s permanent collection which numbers over ten thousand, and spans the history of printmaking from 1493 to the present. Prints possess a multi-valent nature—both the subject and technique embodied in an image must be considered on equal footing, one not privileged over the other. The idea expressed on paper depends upon the printer’s abilities and particular materials to realize successfully... [more]

A couple of years back, the New Yorker ran a profile of a person who is usually hidden from the public but who perhaps has a wider handle and power on how we see than any artist or optometrist. He is the best in the world, sought after by both artists like Philip-Lorca DiCorcia as well as almost every high profile magazine, and his job is a simple one, to make people look “better,” more beautiful by tweaking the tragedy of the image that was actually captured by the camera. It is Pascal Dangin’s job to ai... [more]

I saw David Wojnarowicz’s Fire in My Belly, 1987, the day before it was pulled from the exhibition "Hide/Seek" at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The exhibit itself has been touted by the gallery as “The first major museum exhibition to focus on sexual difference in the making of American portraiture.” Because of pressure from the Catholic League, and complaints from Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor (amongst others who haven’t actually seen the exhibition), the show... [more]

Embroiled in controversy—it's what you’d expect from an exhibition about gay portraiture at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.  In fact, it’s rather surprising that the controversy didn’t arise until a month after the show was open—just in time for World AIDS Day.  On November 30th, the Catholic League complained about David Wojnarowicz's 1987 video piece Fire in My Belly, a “vile video” that could be interpreted as nothing more than an attack on Christianity, all because o...

SFMOMA’s sprawling new photography survey, Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera Since 1870 turns the high powered gaze of the camera onto itself, exploring over a century of peeping, spying, monitoring, snooping and all other forms of illicit looking facilitated by the handy-dandy technology of the lens. It’s an impressively researched archive of images that is as prescient as it might be paranoid. And like most brilliant exhibits, it elaborates on a simple historical premi... [more]

MoMA's "The Original Copy: Photography and Sculpture" in a way feels more like a free-for-all mash-up of associations and juxtapositions than a focused thesis, a stream of consciousness collection of various intersections of photography and sculpture.  There is a remarkable absence of a prescribed formulation to follow, and the subject is explored rather through various themes and practices, stirring groupings and somewhat abrupt shifts of logic.  This lack results not in a confused or...

'A means toward the total liberation of the mind and everything that resembles it.' Declaration of The Bureau of Surrealist Research, 27th January 1925. The way we live, the curious blurring of real circumstances with the flux of an internal world: of longings, dreams, and secret chambers. These fascinating lines of enquiry form the exhibition at Barbican Art Gallery, 'The Surrealist House' , curated by Jane Alison, Alona Pardo, Eleanor Nairne and Léa-Catherine Szacke. The Barbi...

    The American born, Parisian-based artist Man Ray (1890-1976) has been called one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. This exhibition—with over 100 rare black and white photographs, many reunited for the first time with the African objects that they depict—presents how Man Ray and others, including Alfred Stieglitz, Charles Sheeler, Cecil Beaton, and Walker Evans contributed to a Western understanding of African art. This groundbreaking exhibition reveals photography’s comple... [more]
