The ghosts of the past are easily summoned in the paraphernalia of domestic nostalgia. But the familiarity of quotidian objects can also mask the deep value with which they are imbued by their owners, making our own history often so difficult to catalog. After all, a family heirloom is just another thing outside the family. These vessels of the past are always tinged with a sense of loss, and that sense of loss transforms and doubles when the story and sentiment are drained away. This is what... [more]

Sealed within the walls of the museum, history awaits the totalizing recall of the present. This romance still seems possible within certain galleries, even as the relentless drive for higher attendance continues to spur one star-architect-driven addition at a time. As these sparkling wings ascend and crowds swell, new institutions blossom, promising to illuminate areas of art and culture previously ignored. A nagging question that arises amid the robust expansion of the museum's operation: has... [more]

And yet there is an evident reappraisal of permanence that arises in the shift of so much content from one medium to another. Whether it is streaming one's photographs in lieu of creating an album, or skimming an... [more]

Leaders in the world of digital art have called his work “the warmest use of digital technology out there.” This week the New York artist’s uniquely fabricated sculptures, digital paintings, and holographic prints will be the feature of Ed Winkleman’s booth at the Armory Show. If one could wield a brush on a molecular level, the outcome may resemble Hope’s stunning creations. Using molecular modeling software suites, he explodes the parameters and... [more]

Ten years after the death of Jack Goldstein, the question should seem appropriate: "Where is Jack Goldstein?" Despite the survey of works presented at collector and writer Adam Lindemann's gallery, which includes an early film, a sound recording, and thirteen paintings executed between 1976 and 1986, no concrete attempt to answer this question is made. Instead the exhibition presents the artist as the enigma that he was, while providing ample evidence for his continued relevance. The larger... [more]
