Pnina Jalon Armour, Lynda Benglis, Judith Bernstein, Louise Bourgeois, Ellen Cantor, Patricia Cronin, Mary Beth Edelson, Nicole Eisenman, Nancy Fried, Nan Goldin, Nancy Grossman, G.B. Jones, Doris Kloster, Joyce Kozloff, Zoe Leonard, Monica Majoli, Marilyn Minter, Alice Neel, Lorraine O'Grady, Yoko Ono, Carolee Schneemann, Joan Semmel, Cindy Sherman, Nancy Spero, Hannah Wilke at Maccarone (Morton Street) September 9th - October 16th
Posted 9/23/16

Entering Maccarone Gallery on the evening of the opening for Coming to Power: 25 Years of Sexually X-plicit Art By Women, almost felt like walking into a reunion. This is possibly because the exhibition is a restaging of a 1993 show curated by Ellen Cantor at the then brand new David Zwirner Gallery, but also because there is a level of communal excitement that goes beyond the usual group show fervor. It’s an excitement indicative of the unprecedented effort on the part of Maccarone and six... [more]

In a Moving Orchestra of Grief, Mourning Is a Professional—and Political—Act   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Taryn Simon at Park Avenue Armory September 13th - September 25th
Posted 9/19/16

“Each of us has his own rhythm of suffering” Roland Barthes wrote in his Mourning Diary following the death of his mother with whom he lived until her passing. The performance of suffering, and the unique, personal rhythms it can take, is at the center of An Occupation of Loss, Taryn Simon’s monumental installation and performance now in its two-week tenure at the Park Avenue Armory. Eleven concrete towers—thin, cylindrical, dystopian—trace a semicircle through the... [more]

Live Uncertainty: Impressions from São Paulo Bienal   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
at Bienal São Paulo September 7th - December 11th
Posted 9/16/16

As I walked along the winding path of Parque Ibirapuera toward the São Paulo Bienal entrance, I thought about how the impeachment decision, which ousted Brazil’s first female president, Dilma Rousseff, was finalized a few days prior. When the decision came down, I was with a group of artists during a residency. We spent ten days together in Zone Leste, the east zone in the periphery, away from the bustling city center. One of us had gone out the night before and reported that there... [more]

What Can LARPing Bring to an Art World Obsessed with the Present?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Brody Condon at Akademie der Künste - Pariser Platz September 17th - September 18th
Posted 9/15/16

The problem of presence Presence wracks the contemporary artist’s existence. Take, for instance, Marina Abramovic’s 2010 retrospective, The Artist Is Present, during which the artist famously sat in the gallery for the entirety of her exhibition’s run at MoMA. In her essay “‘The Artist is Present’: Artistic Re-enactments and the Impossibility of Presence,” critic Amelia Jones argues that the very fact that Abramovic was there, in the live act, “dest...

Macri’s Orgasmic Forge by Kenneth Radu

7/17/16 Posted 7/17/16

The night is thick with heat and windless humidity. I am restless and stimulated, my body temperature rising in the dark room as I stare at and am consumed by an extraordinary Macri image: Drop Curtain. I have no idea what Macri intends by this image, his title notwithstanding, but I mean to write what it means to me because I cannot quench the fire in my bones until I do so. We don’t need to know what an artist “meant” in order to understand what the art means to us, and it... [more]

So-Called "Artist" Laura Lima Is One Sick Puppy BY URI DOWBENKO

7/9/16 Posted 7/9/16

(JULY 2016) MIAMI INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART (sic sic sic) -- So when is "art" not art? When it's a cynical publicity stunt masquerading as "art." Take for example Laura Lima, who claims to be a performance artist. However she didn’t want to stick a cord up her vagina for her "art" – so she hired some Craigslist slave-labor girls to do it for her. However -- they didn’t think it was cool at all… and they publicly said so This was first reported by the Miami... [more]

Posted 6/27/16

Cracked and imperfect, resting atop a section of otherwise crisp white marble floor, is a carpet of gridded reddish dirt. At the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, in a biannual exhibition tasked with representing local creativity, a portrait of the region’s artistic practice takes shape—installed alongside the very firmament from which it was excavated. The earth, the grit, the material of the city—literal and imagined—makes its way into the museum. “It's a dynamic moment in... [more]

The Russian Terrorist: Petr Pavlensky   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 6/13/16

And to everyone, who shares my views, I would say that we need to rethink our conception of the animal instinct of fear. Through this instinct, the power apparatus controls us and takes away our lives.[1] Thus wrote Petr Pavlensky, the so-called "mind, balls and conscience"[2] of Putin's Russia in his December 15, 2015 letter from Butyrskaya Prison to a Radio Svoboda journalist.[3] Pavlensky was detained after his November 9, 2015 aktsiya[4], titled "Threat," which consisted of lighting the...
