A Boy Scout Jamboree At Subliminal Projects " Duane Paul’s huge sculpture of various colored, fragmented scouts have similar effects. Paul’s piece hints at a less overt theme in the show, one that gets outside of the organization’s anti-gay agenda: minorities in American boy scouts have only existed on the margins. His colorful and quietly confrontational figures hit every element of the show–rainbows, black bodies,... [more]
It’s leftover memories hauled off in a battered boxed, thin with water damage, to the local thrift store and dropped at the backdoor. An abandoned baby, lovingly clad in taffeta and enshrouded in a knit blanket, with nary a note. What, if anything, can be found in the kitsch of capitalism, the leftover detritus of a disposable culture, a transient society? What initial hopefulness and final dejection can be located in their battered bodies? Liz Craft’s excavation of what can be found in the... [more]

Typically, if one sees work that she/he likes, they are not likely to get a second chance to see such work again for quite some time, since the unspoken rule of our beloved galleries is to avoid anything that is not making its debut. I suspect, for this reason, the non-profit space White Columns inaugurated their annual, three years ago. Each installment is selected by a NYC-based curator who gets to round together their favorite works seen about town in institutions, gallery settings, etc.... [more]
