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 s... [more]

Outrage in art can descend into agitprop or endure as a trenchant record of atrocity. Goya's Disasters of War prints (published well after his death), Otto Dix's illustrations of the horrors of World War I are series that still shock, that still seem, unfortunately, topical. When words are incorporated into images, there's a chance that the artist is not merely showing, but obvious or hectoring.

Girls’ Club in Fort Lauderdale presents Set to Manual, an opinionated look at artworks characterized by intense personal manufacture. Works by more than twenty-five artists range from hand-painted animation and hand-altered 16mm film, to pricked paper drawings and artists’ books, from free-wheeling collage and assemblage to site-specific installation and more. The works on view in Set to Manual were developed and refined by the artists’ hand at every stage of creation. Lavish investment in each wo... [more]
