In a grey winter dressed in Berlin black, David Shrigley’s miniature exhibition at oftentimes collaborator BQ Berlin is a sweet treat, embodying a vibrancy and playfulness fitting for the new Turner Prize candidate. For the uninitiated, the Scotsman’s work targets the absurd in the mundane, exposing the hypocrisy or frivolity underlying everyday norms through blunt aphoristic phraseology, an OCD eye for the off-putting detail, and weird childish doodles. You can say that he acts the... [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]

The Cat Show was inevitable: an art exhibition devoted to the feline as internet meme, domestic partner, and kitsch icon. Contemporary cat tropes were as bound to spill into art spaces as the boom of advertising was irresistible fodder for the “pictures generation” forty years ago. The temptation is to dismiss The Cat Show, now on view at White Columns, as pandering: like a motorcycle exhibition or Harry Potter at the Discovery Center. The Walker Art Center presented a wildly popular Int... [more]

Next to a taxidermy rat lying on the floor of the gallery is David Shrigley’s animation, Switch, 2007. Projected onto the wall in roughly a single square foot. In it, a finger, composed simply with black lines in the artist's emblematically elemental linework, pushes a light switch repeatedly, on-off, on-off, on-off. Click-click, click-click. Each time “off” comes into the rotation, the projection disappears, it clicks off.  After a series of on-off’s the finger pulls back for a second. Will it go... [more]

A note of unreality prevails at David Shrigley's major exhibition "Brain Activity". His sculptures, which dominate this expansive survey of his work, are essentially three-dimensional realisations of the offbeat drawings for which he is best known. Assembled in this way, they begin to suggest what a comic strip brought to life would look like. Ostrich (2009), a stuffed ostrich with its head surreally lopped-off, gives the impression of a magnified cartoon. Very Large Cup of Tea (2012) combines litres... [more]

Western Exhibitions’ packed show “Heads on Poles” achieves almost inadvertently what most biennials regularly fail to do: gather together artists and artworks that can be seen as representing common artistic impulses under an interesting theme. Taking the title as the theme for the exhibition, the curators Paul Nudd and Scott Wolniak, Chicago-based artists themselves, gathered together over 60 artists who only received basic submission guidelines and then were free to create and interpret the them...

The difficult question of what should be the inaugural exhibition of the newly extended South London Gallery is cleverly resolved in Nothing is Forever. It is all about the building. The garden. The café. The flat for artists residencies. All have been treated to artistic intervention of the oldest kind, bringing together wall paintings, drawings and text pieces by 20 British and international artists. The original gallery floor was designed by Walter Crane in the 19 century and bears... [more]

  MOCA at the Pacific Design Center currently has an exhibition of artist books.  Unfortunately the books are under glass vitrines, but you CAN watch the pages turn through MOCA's website at: http://www.moca.org/openbook/sequences.php - a virtual read. The exhibition features books by Sigmar Polke, Keith Haring, Olafur Eliasson, Michael Snow, Ray Johnson, Andy Warhol, Hans-Peter Feldman, Paul McCarthy/Jason Rhoades and more.   This exhibition does point out the issue with showing artist books.  O...
