A human skull rests atop a modest wooden table flanked by a chronometer, books, musical instruments, an earthenware pot, and swathes of silk. Harmen Steenwyck’s Still Life: An Allegory of the Vanities of Human Life (1612-1656) is emblematic of the vanitas genre, most commonly known for its intimate tabletop tableaux alluding to the transient nature of all worldly goods and pursuits. Upon entering Vanitas – Nothing is Forever Anyway at Berlin’s Georg Kolbe Museum, one immediate... [more]

Highlighting his win of this year’s Ars Fennica prize, Jeppe Hein’s There Are No Ordinary Moments also forms the celebrated artist’s first solo exhibition in Finland. The choice was made by Akiko Miki, Senior Curator at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. Her decision was informed by the way his work affects behavior and engages perception. Thus, it makes perfect sense that the exhibition presents an elucidating overview of his output ranging from his use of reflective materials, geometric sh... [more]

The circus is coming to town. The tent is going up in Regent’s Park and the hordes of gallerists, collectors and devotees are moving in. It is time for the delicious and baffling spectacle that is Frieze London. Frieze is a mysterious beast. It is a super-capitalist cattle market for the artworld to show off and trade its most prized specimens. It is also a cultural welter where big time collectors, small time crooks, celebrities and artworld groupies gather for the inevitable theatrics. A... [more]

On the face of it, this exhibition, Néon. Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue? is just plain fun. With the Maison Rouge all lit up in different colored neon lights, both industrially produced and hand-crafted  tubes bringing the walls to life, inviting us to walk into spaces saturated in impossible colors. A visit to Néon is ostensibly a joyful, light way to spend an afternoon. Then as we quickly realize, neon has more to it than meets the eye. Neon lights may look pretty, but they are... [more]

Posted 7/12/11

The latest offering from Seattle's Western Bridge gallery, Funhouse, seems intent on leaving a lasting impression: vertigo, a lack of breath, seared retinas. Granted that the carnival image conjured by the title is more Britney or X-tina than Turrell or Nauman, but the carefully pruned selections both support and belie this whimsical touch. This is not to say the sideshow allusion is dumped. Rather, one gets the impression that each of the major “attractions,” Mungo Thompson's Skyspace Bouncehouse, 2007,... [more]

The Mori Art Museum on the 52nd Floor of the recently constructed Roppongi Hills complex is an adventure from the minute you step foot inside the complex. The very idea of a gallery on the top of a high rise shopping center and apartment complex feels like the future has arrived. It is the perfect location for an exhibition of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, and even more appropriate is the choice of The Kaleidoscopic Eye. The exhibition focuses on the challenges to our perception... [more]
