The city is a cosmic place. It is home, playground, office, and dreamland all in one. Stadt/Bild: Image of a City is the second time four Berlin institutions have collaborated in their contemporary art program. The project, initiated and funded by the city of Berlin, is part of the city’s pursuit of prestige events that draw attention to Berlin Art Week and its commercial epicenter, the abc art fair. Two years ago, Painting Forever! was thought banal and unexciting but successful enough (i.e. nece... [more]

In Jon Rafman’s 2013 film, Still Life (Betamale), we watch furries and hentai sourced from the deep web while a flat voiceover delivers a speech about leaving one world to enter another. It’s the promise virtual realities offer us: escapism. This idea is at the center of Grand Tour, the inaugural two-person show featuring new works from Rafman and Keren Cytter at Feuer/Mesler, one of two new Lower East Side galleries founded this year by Zach Feuer and Untitled director Joel Mesler (the...

The humble tote bag has become something of an art world standby. Bagged at every international festival, biennale, art fair, and other art carnivals, these simple canvas carriers have found their way however oddly, into the annals of art. A good a record as anything, frankly utilitarian, and not without, especially in the hands of artists, art. But in this sense, they’ve invested this simple object with something almost of a glamor, one easily taken up in their own ways by altern... [more]

The floorplan of MMX´s exhibition space, which winds around the entire ground floor of an old building on Linienstr., allows for a sense of discovery. The layout of the space, as well as its temporary nature (it lasts for only one year) demand a certain amount of creative experimentation and energy from the work and its curation. The venue´s current exhibition takes full advantage of these possibilities. None of the work feels precious or labored over, and it is curated with a light touch that ma... [more]
