Thomas Ruff at Johnen Galerie November 8th, 2013 - January 25th
Posted 11/14/13

It’s been years since photographer Thomas Ruff has taken a picture in the traditional sense – set the aperture, press the shutter release, develop the film. For most of his career, Ruff’s work has consisted of altering images he’s dug up everywhere, from the archives of NASA to Internet porn sites. In his latest series, Ruff disregards the camera’s role in the photography process altogether. In photograms, now on display at Johnen Galerie in Mitte, Ruff champions the... [more]

It was afternoon. In Copenhagen. A charming, too-handsome-for-words mutual acquaintance relayed the news that Denmark had been crowned the richest country in the EU. I couldn’t vouch for this, but its capital appeared to be the most sustainable of all the conscientiously green cities I’d visited in northern Europe. Of course I wasn’t travelling all the way from America to Scandinavia for wind farms, organic elderberry juice, or even the first-time thrill of ordering drinks at an honest-to-God Ice Bar....

Thomas Ruff at Gagosian Gallery - Davies Street March 8th, 2012 - April 21st, 2012
Posted 3/24/12

In describing this series of appropriated nudes, Thomas Ruff may find his critics reduced to blushing innuendo: the Davies Street Gagosian is housing his stills from hardcore movies - more paranormal than pornographic in their hazy views of their subject matter – until April 21st, offering the viewer a Roman-style orgy in varying degrees of clarity. There is a Richteresque aspect to their soft, Gaussian blur, as though viewed through a vaseline-coated lens; Ruff's computerised edit makes penetration seem... [more]

Taking inspiration from Emily Dickenson’s poem of the same name, “The House Without the Door” considers the idea of home as emotionally complicated rather than safe, secure and comforting. Eighteen artists including Mamma Andersson, Louise Bourgeois, Philip-Lorca di Corcia, Luc Tuymans, and Rachel Whiteread use painting, sculpture, installation, and photography to examine the multiple meanings of home with the understanding that home is not only where the heart is, or where comfort and familiar...

Posted 11/1/10

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]

      It may be obvious that curators in the art world would appear pretty ridiculous even attempting to moonlight as professional basketball players, but the reverse, it turns out, is not true: professional basketball players can, in fact, moonlight as curators. The Flag Art Foundation is responsible for revealing this perplexity, and the show Size DOES Matter, curated by Cleveland Cavalier Shaquille O’Neal, proves that pro-ball players do not play the curation game like curators do. This is... [more]

In addition to the blockbuster exhibit currently at MOMA, curator Joachim Pissarro, along with Hunter MA students Mara Hoberman and Julia Moreno, organized a companion show to his Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night  that plays off our beloved Dutch Post-Impressionist’s fascination with the night. To:Night - Contemporary Representations of the Night fills both Hunter’s sprawling Times Square Gallery and the college’s more elegant, midtown exhibition space, with works by over 40 international c...
