Enter City of Disappearances slowly; it will take a moment, but your eyes will begin to adjust to the dimness of your new environment and you’ll likely find yourself quizzically wandering toward Martin Boyce’s sculptures. In Our Love Is Like the Flowers, the Rain, the Sea, and the Hours, 2002, branching neons delicately tower over a bench one could not physically sit on, astride a misshapen trashcan through this park-like installation. Or so those are the associations I immediately ma... [more]

The collection of the Daimler Corporation focuses on “abstract and geometrical pictorial concepts, from which it derives its distinctive character,” which is an excellent starting point for conceptual approaches to art marking. It seems like Sol LeWitt is becoming lionized as the unchallenged father of the conceptual art, his practice bridges the pictorial and the sculptural and provides a through-road from Minimalism to hardcore “conceptual art” as it were. And while luminaries of the traditio... [more]

Between 1951 and 1965 René Magritte published a series of poems, illustrations, photographs, short stories, and theoretical essays in a journal he called La Carte d’Après Nature.  Translated as The Postcard of Nature, this publication was a diverse assortment of concepts, information, and artistic ephemera that had been pulled from various eras in history.  Though the subject matter was often disparate, every piece related to the whole by way of Magritte’s dreamy train of thought. Curated by Thoma... [more]

The parks that surround some museums isolate art into objects of formal delectation. Objects in a park suggest static repose rather than any ongoing dialectic. Parks are finished landscapes for finished art. Robert Smithson, "Cultural Confinement," 1972 Sweden, the land of near perfect summers, lush outdoor environments and carefree activities. The tourist bureau is, rare for tourist bureaus, not lying. Marabouparken's group exhibition “Parkliv” (“Park Life”) took advantage of the... [more]

Using tin snips and pliers, Alexander Calder fashioned his mobiles from sheet metal, wire, and bits of junk. After painting the sculptures in bright colors, he hung them from the ceiling where they move slowly in the air. Calder’s work is instantly recognizable, completely approachable, and a treat to the eye. There’s no other artist like him. Everyone loves Calder, but critics underrate him, says Lynne Warren, the long-time Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) curator. Also, she adds, Cald... [more]
