A Rua (The Street) shows work by twenty artists whose lives and work are closely related to the city of Rio de Janeiro. The exhibition focuses on the development of this art scene over the last four decades, on the one hand with work from the late 60s and early 70s – the wonder years of global conceptualism, in which Brazilian art played a leading part – and on the other work from contemporary movements. A Rua (The Street) shows work by some thirty artists whose lives and work are closely relat... [more]

In “Memória do Corpo (Memory of the Body)”, a film taken in 1985, a plump and ageing – yet still stunningly sensual – Lygia Clark sits cross-legged on the floor of a Paris living room and fondles plastic bags. Some are filled with air, others with water, yet others with beans. There are also pantyhose stuffed with potatoes that she carefully drapes around her neck, a flashlight she shines over honey-smeared lips and a tube through which she hums. The Brazilian sculptor Lygia Clark, on... [more]

            The show at Raven Row brings together a broad and nebulous collection of works to describe a largely invisible phenomenon – art’s relationship to politics. This is a show which requires effort to dissect, both conceptually and visually, but the effort does not go unrewarded. The curatorial voice at work is heavy with theory and occasionally the work borders on becoming merely “illustrations” of essentially intellectual or verbal argument (something which interest in “the Archive”...

Everything in Brazil's modern culture it seems is celebrated with an exclamation point. And the current show at YBCA promises just that: "originality of the culture of people who live in the tropics." Here, the Tropicaìlia art movement is loudly explored, portraying a uniquely Brazilian art culture. I was, however, left reeling not from the surprise of innovation but by the bold, dizzying colors and the overwhelming aroma of coconut and suntan oil (actual smells!). More cloying were th...

The theme of the Walker Art Center’s exhibition “The Quick and the Dead” got personal, quickly, when I observed that an On Kawara date painting near the entry was the same date as an uncle’s birthday. Made by Kawara to mark the passage of time, the ongoing series implies its own end in the artist’s death, just as birthdays imply to many of us that there are only so many left. This exhibition announces its’ intentions to examine The Big Questions of Life at the outset in the title, but... [more]
