On the face of it, this exhibition, Néon. Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue? is just plain fun. With the Maison Rouge all lit up in different colored neon lights, both industrially produced and hand-crafted  tubes bringing the walls to life, inviting us to walk into spaces saturated in impossible colors. A visit to Néon is ostensibly a joyful, light way to spend an afternoon. Then as we quickly realize, neon has more to it than meets the eye. Neon lights may look pretty, but they... [more]

  Monuments represent power and are generally speaking stand-ins for national identity; in a word, they are authoritarian. Monuments-as-objects have had their sense and meaning radically changed with an array of failure and crises across the modern historical and political panorama. We are presently plagued with the decay of monuments, a de-monumentalization of symbols and historical icons often replaced by other varieties, less governmental, more icon: TV personalities, general phemera and...

Posted 11/22/09
        It is quite a coincidence that “Italics,” Francesco Bonami’s ambitious endeavor to liberate the contemporary art of Italy opened just one week before Italian-born artist Monica Bonvicini’s "Light Me Black", the first "Focus" exhibition to debut in the Art Institute of Chicago’s Modern Wing.  Unlike many of the artists included in the Bonami’s survey of the last forty years of Italian Art, Bonvicini has received critical acclaim and international recognition for her videos,...

Scorpio’s Garden presents a “subjective snapshot of the Berlin art scene” by bringing together over 60 works by more than 35 international artists, most of whom live or work in Berlin. It marks the beginning of the second and final year of a varied program of exhibitions and events at the Temporary Kunsthalle.  This year, all exhibitions will be curated by artists. In this case, it is Danish Berlin-based artist Kirstine Roepstorff. The title of the show is explained in the exhibition... [more]

It is difficult to pull a coherent synopsis out of an event this large. Prospect.1, to the credit of the city of New Orleans and all involved, is a massive undertaking that showcases a vast array of contemporary art, and in so doing, puts this amazing city, in all its glory and decay, on center stage. With the time I spent in New Orleans and at Prospect.1, I feel like I barely got started. I like to dig in and go at my own pace. I did manage to see an incredible amount of incredible work, but...
