Lowbrow Stuff in a Vitrine   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Andy Coolquitt at Lisa Cooley January 31st - March 9th
Posted 2/24/14

It's as if the artwork decamped from the gallery and took refuge amongst the luxury wares in the nearby designer outlet. I probably would not have noticed Andy Coolquitt’s installation in Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s hip boutique if I hadn’t been looking for it. The work’s prolix title, no I didn't go to any museums here I hate museums museums are just stores that charge you to come in there are lots of free museums here but they have names like real stores, suggests this Texas based...

Michelangelo Pistoletto at Luhring Augustine Bushwick December 18th, 2013 - May 11th
Posted 1/29/14

Luhring Augustine’s Bushwick satellite currently hosts the “possibilities” of Michelangelo Pistoletto. An array of things, thoughts, and playful points of interest fill the floor and walls. Vastly ranging in scope, they generate a powerful effect that often feels absent in contemporary art. The Minus Objects, 1965-66 speak to an interesting period of Pistoletto’s life and career. Around this time, the artist began to pioneer the predominantly Italian movement Arte Povera... [more]

Posted 1/22/14

Berlin in January is a dark and cold place. There is no better time to stay indoors and look at some art. And even though some of the current exhibitions exacerbate the feeling of gloom by combining the Winter theme with a site-specific post-war historical touch, there are also a few that can counteract the melancholy. Topping the list of feel-good shows is the Roman Signer exhibition at Barbara Weiss. This show presents six new objects by the Swiss artist that transform the gallery into a place of... [more]

The Conspicuousness of the Unusable   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Rey Akdogan, Olof Inger, Gabriel Kuri, Jean-Luc Moulène, Charlotte Posenenske, Dorothea Rockburne, Cameron Rowland at Miguel Abreu Gallery Orchard St June 28th, 2013 - August 17th, 2013
Posted 8/20/13

Doubling as a bookshop and event space for philosophy publisher Sequence Press, Miguel Abreu Gallery’s always had an ambitious engagement with philosophy. “Conspicuous Unusable,” Abreu’s latest show, takes the philosopher’s conception of the usability of material things as the starting point for a well-curated, minimalist-oriented group show. To Heidegger, material objects are made legible by our referring to both the "towards which" of their intended use and the "whe... [more]
