What is freedom? This is what the current exhibition, , at Bologna’s Museum of Modern Art, (MAMbo) attempts to answer through the lenses of art and science. The idea is to present science that has “freed” us from the trials of a pre-modern society, while showing that art continues to comment on and complicate the human relationship to freedom. Works from Ryan Trecartin, Vanessa Beecroft, and Bob and Roberta Smith all stand alongside vitrines with examples of technology that appear to have... [more]

In early 2012 Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós challenged filmmakers to create videos for their album . Photographer Ryan McGinley chose the song “Varúð,” an eight-minute dream narrated by a raspy head voice over an unsteady piano and transparent strings. In his video a barefoot girl in a glittery gold wig and a washed-out blue nightie skips through the streets of New York City in slow motion. She passes trucks, taxicabs, construction workers, and business men, moves along highways and park... [more]

When I moved to New York in 2007 one of the first things I picked up was a copy of with Dash Snow, Dan Colen, and Ryan McGinley in bed together on the cover. The image, shot by Cass Bird, has stayed with me. It shows a bird’s-eye view of three friends in their underwear, snuggled together like a small litter of puppies. The picture is intimate but it becomes oddly intrusive on a magazine cover, in part because no one is making eye contact with the photographer. Instead all three either sleep... [more]

It may be true, as OHWOW's press release breathlessly claims, that theirs is “a group exhibition distinct of a decade and definitive of era,” but if so, it's an era that, thus defined, is distinguished mainly by its forgettability. Poorly curated, with equally little to offer to fans of the nine artists represented in the show as to the uninitiated, fails to make the case for the significance of the ten or so post-millennial years of New York art-making with which it's concerned.The problem...

I've only seen Michelangelo Antonioni's Zabriskie Point once, many years ago.  But Ryan McGinley's latest solo show in Amsterdam turned me on in almost the exact same way as that film back then. Famously, the Italian director's film had a fascination for youth and its limitless, meaningless potential. Life is seen as a frontier stretching out to the unknown, a desert dotted by similarly spirited souls, a tabula rasa populated by spontaneous, joyous, dangerous connections. McGinley's images...

        The evanescent shadow of rustling leaves and dappling sun in late photographer Dash Snow's "(Untitled) Metallic Trees," shimmer with life, its temporality, its fragility, its captivating intensity. This is probably the most poignant work in "3+1," a show at the Galerie du Jour agnès b in Paris.  The exhibition, 3+1, features works by Snow and two of his friends and artistic colleagues, Ryan McGinley and Harmony Korine. When an artist dies so young – Snow was 27 when he was killed... [more]
Golden Youth: Young and Hasty   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Summer always seems a time of optimism. The season ruled by youth and warm intentions. The season that, as we grow older, we fasten the nostalgic lock around and bar our Shangri-Las. Ryan McGinley's vivid photographs celebrate these stories of summer vacation with the sweet, simple directness of a folk song. The deeply colorful photos portray twenty-somethings in the buff: a testament to this generation's free love. The landscapes of wide, vast, golden prairies stimulate adventure and... [more]
