“The last time I was here,” my friend whispered as we walked into Gabriel Orozco’s show, “I sort of kicked a sculpture. It was really big and I thought it might make a sound like a gong, and I was right.” While the Tate has strict policies against touching works of art, somehow I don’t think Orozco would disapprove of tactile interaction between work and viewer. Some of his pieces actively encourage hands-on engagement and many are highly constructed in the sense that the physi... [more]

Posted 1/3/11

Pulling from the Museum of Contemporary Art’s (MCA) own collection, curator Tricia Van Eck, with the help of Dominic Molon (a former curator at the MCA, now Chief Curator at the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis), presents this season’s bread-and-butter exhibition. Running until May, “Without You I’m Nothing” addresses an issue that has defined art from the ‘60s onward: the viewer. What is the role of the audience in art? Does art exist without an audience? How can art affect and effect the view... [more]

Posted 11/9/10

At its best, the invocation of the everyday stimulates a kind of miasmic and pervasive timelessness: vast empty skies, winds and wolves howling and the cruel loneliness of existence and so on and so forth. At its most trite, the quotidian as a subject in art (from slice-of-lifers to unrelenting activists)  begs for sanctimonious genuflection. Pathos-inducing relics (crinkled bus transfers, a single baby’s sock) ease to the weepy ponderance of personal history. A powerful facult... [more]

Gabriel Orozco at Centre Pompidou September 15th, 2010 - January 3rd, 2011
Posted 10/18/10

Robert Rauschenberg said that he worked in the gap between art and life, thus implying that the two ran on parallel yet separate tracks. In his recent show at the Centre Pompidou, Gabriel Orozco produces work that transcends that simplistic relationship. His pieces, ingeniously simple sight gags, cause us to approach our daily existence in a precarious and blissful manner. Life doesn’t have to be this way, it seems, but it is. Orozco spends a lot of time with the idea of casts, of negative space. There ar... [more]

Not the catchiest title perhaps, but Kupferstichkabinett is certainly a memorable show.  Referring to the collections of the German aristocracy which in turn lead to the more accessible print and drawing rooms in museums, this show draws on the past to prove that drawing is very much alive and kicking in contemporary art. Set up like a museum, with works densely hung on dark green walls, the show turns the White Cube into a museum of modern drawing, exploring its pivotal role in the pra... [more]

Walker Evans and the Barn, the group exhibition currently installed at the Stedelijk Museum Bureau, takes the iconic American photographer’s late work as its conceptual foundation. Organized by guest curator Jeremiah Day, the show explores documentary art; its practitioners’ overlapping activities of creation, representation, and discovery. The title cites an anecdote in which Evans purchased the contents of a barn filled with old signs and objects, later reinstalling them on a friend’s l... [more]

Editor's Note: In honor of the opening of ArtSlant Toronto, we dug through our archives of Toronto reviews from the past few years. We're featuring the following review from David Yu, for its particular celebration of the Toronto scene, which remains cutting edge and experimental.   I’ve been away from the Toronto art scene for a number of years and was looking forward to revisiting the city that served as backdrop to the cultivation of my love for contemporary art. What I miss most about the T... [more]

Posted 7/19/09

Taking its title from a Lawrence Weiner work, As Long As It Lasts comprises works that contemplate impermanence and mortality, often from a personalized, humanist point of view. There is nothing fussy or overly sophisticated about this one. It talks the talk and walks the walk.  The show opens with Maurizio Cattelan's simple photograph of a pen that has just run out of ink, then proceeds to two poetic films  by William Kentridge and Guido Van der Werve, respectively. The latt... [more]

      This unique survey of one of the most extensive corporate collections in the U.S. takes a close look at paintings, prints, and photographs created over the past 80 years. The exhibition examines and celebrates work by artists on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, to reveal a variety of cultural aspects as they emerged in the years after the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920). Assembled here for the first time, visitors to the Miradas exhibition will have the opportunity to observe how many art... [more]
