The artists included in De-Nature, curated by the painter Wendy White, are concerned with dismantling what might be considered “natural” in painting, i.e. a coherently painted canvas stretched over a rectangular wooden frame and displayed on a wall.  Disassembling and reconfiguring the elements of painting is a project that has been ongoing for at least a century, but White offers insight into how a new generation of artists is attacking the problem.  In the absence of consensus painting norms to...

      The Americans are on at Galerie Zürcher with the second edition of Wild Feature (this one is aptly titled Wild Feature 2).  The first Wild exhibit was shown at Zürcher Studio in New York during June-July, 2009.  Big, brash and quirky - this exhibition of 8 artists curated by one of them (Brian Belott) brings a visual deli of New York-style offerings.  The work is dense and needs a couple of viewings to consume.  Layered, collaged, packed, and cobbled, from large-scale paintings, to works...

One of Belott's predilections is for producing original books(1) of which Donald Baechler has remarked that "they work particularly well in groups"(2). He combines painting on all sorts of surfaces with techniques as diverse as drawing, photography and using collections of found images. Starting with documents drawn from a wide variety of sources, he creates disparate elements which may admittedly be of little interest as such, but which, once brought together through collage techniques,...

Top Ten:1. Tino Sehgal: Marian Goodman Gallery. I often see shows I don’t like but this was the only show I’ve ever seen that didn’t like me! Last winter Tino Sehgal had performers stand in the rear room of this gallery and discuss art and philosophy. Viewers were acknowledged as they entered and occasionally included in conversations. After answering one of the performers he basically upbraided me. I was horrified, mortified and thrilled. Sehgal has taken "relational esthetics" to a whole new leve... [more]

On the heels of his Schmagoo Paintings exhibition, Joe Bradley spent the last month curating Peanut Gallery, a new group show of what he calls "funny, intimately scaled pieces made of humble materials" for The Journal Gallery. "There's a heckler vibe to a lot of the work," says Bradley, who's assembled everything from a Miles Davis portrait by Keith Mayerson and a Eunice Kim installation of a cardboard robot face (with red and blue lightbulb eyes) to one of Dan Colen's bubble-gum-enhanced canvase...
