NEW YORK PHOTO DIARY, JUNE 24 2015 - Catherine Troiano Last Wednesday, Klompching Gallery re-opened in their new location at 89 Water Street, DUMBO.

Will Benedict at Bortolami Gallery June 11th - August 1st
Posted 6/29/15

The thematic centerpiece of Paris-based artist Will Benedict’s solo show at Bortolami is The Bed That Eats, a six-minute animated video with music by Michigan-based noise duo Stare Case. The soundtrack opens with electronic scrawl, an aimless bass melody, and occasional shakes of a maraca. The video, meanwhile, portrays an undressed bed, hyperrealistic and monochromatic, in an empty windowless room. When Stare Case vocalist Nate Young’s voice pierces through the hitherto sparse, inst... [more]

by
Kim Gordon at 303 Gallery June 4th - July 24th
Posted 6/19/15

"Let me introduce you," sings Kim Gordon on 2002's "Sympathy for the Strawberry," "since you saw my shadow self / living underneath you." What's underneath the artist's new pieces at 303? Humps of rigid canvas painted with unintelligible words and manicured faux-hedges sit on the gallery floor, while a sparkly crumpled canvas or two hangs on each wall. Indeed, all of the objects create shadows; they look as though they're hiding something, the sole representational piece (a close-up photo of th... [more]

Posted 4/27/15

Adel Gorgy's work in Issues at Arts Guild New Jersey Contemporary art and social activism often swim in the same waters. The connection crosses borders and decades, as creative individuals—in art and literature, performance and song—have given voice, sometimes the only one, to victims of turmoil and iniquities. Issues, an exhibition in which a group of contemporary artists respond to political, social, racial, gender, and economic issues facing the world in recent years opened M... [more]

A Change is Gonna Come Solo exhibition Marco Pezzotta (1985)Curated by Bogomir Doringer *** The artistic interest from Marco Pezzotta lays in examining different systems in which our identity is being either formed or changed. We stand in those systems as individuals or as part of a group. For describing and shaping these relations Marco Pezzotta uses objects that function as tools for a narrative. They appear from another space and time, floating between digital and physical. The artist creates... [more]

Posted 8/31/14

On August 11, 1977, the California Museum of Science and Industry in Los Angeles hosted Space Day, a carefully planned and tightly orchestrated media event organized by Whole Earth Catalog editor and environmental activist Stewart Brand. The symposium was an odd pairing, merging the utopian messaging of the back-to-the-land movement with a campaign to establish space colonies put forth by the military-aeronautics industry. In an opening speech, honored guest, astronaut Russell Schweickart spoke to... [more]

Meredith James at Jack Hanley Gallery- New York March 15th, 2014 - April 13th, 2014
Posted 4/4/14

The red-and-white checked, anamorphic floor of Meredith James’s video installation Delmar, showing through April 13th at the Jack Hanley Gallery, primes viewers to expect a puzzle. The video triptych behind the green velvet curtains at the far end of the gallery doesn’t disappoint. As a form, the triptych can be traced from the painted altarpieces of the early Renaissance to modern films. Before the now standard use of widescreen in film, Abel Gance made use of a triptych format to... [more]

by Darryl Jingwen Wee Published: July 3, 2013 New York-based artist Miya Ando is currently having her first solo exhibition at Sundaram Tagore Gallery in New York, showcasing her signature burnished steel and anodized aluminum works that deftly tie together abstraction, industrial fabrication, spiritual subject matter, and the lessons of American minimalism. Using industrial dyes and rolled, burnished sheets of metal, Ando’s surfaces radiate luminous color, tantalizing the eye with a palette of serene b... [more]

Posted 9/24/12

           Over the past fifteen years, the “Ocean Parkway Serial Killer” targeted sex workers along this stretch of roadway, ultimately burying them at Gilgo Beach.  It is this series of events that Nick Kline examines in his exhibit, Gilgo Beach.  In a sterilized, clinical gallery space, the track lighting of a traditional gallery replaced with fluorescents, floor covered in stains that contrast the whiteness of the walls, Kline’s detailed, large-scale photographs create the air of a laborat...
