Elegantly Constructed Oddities   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Benoît Maire at Cortex Athletico - Paris April 6th, 2013 - May 25th, 2013
Posted 5/24/13
Benoît Maire’s diverse oeuvre, which includes film, performance, writing, installation and painting, is characterized by erudite philosophical and art historical references. Focusing on a series of small sculptures, Maire’s first solo exhibition in Paris presents puzzling, seemingly functional objects in sleek Plexiglas vitrines, on rustic wooden surfaces, and through documentary-style photographs. Ambiguously—or perhaps simultaneously—tools, weapons, and quasi-scientific instruments, these... [more]
Huot’s Hodgepodge Devotional Décor   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Benoit Huot at Galerie Eva Hober February 23rd, 2013 - March 23rd, 2013
Posted 3/21/13
For the past twenty years, Benoit Huot has worked in virtual obscurity in Montivernage, a tiny village in France’s eastern Franche-Comté region. The artist’s first exhibition came just this past fall when, at the age of forty-six, a sampling of his sculpture—fifteen whimsically festooned taxidermied animals—was shown in Paris at La Maison Rouge (collector Antoine de Galbert’s foundation.) Soon after this high-profile debut, Huot was picked up by Galerie Eva Hober, where seven new sculptures are... [more]
Ye Olde Tchotchke Shoppe   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Shana Moulton at Galerie Crèvecoeur January 11th, 2013 - March 3rd, 2013
Posted 2/13/13
Shana Moulton’s first Parisian solo show brings a hearty dose of the California-born, NYC-based artist’s signature new agey kitsch aesthetic to the heady gallery scene in Belleville. Known for campy videos and live performances featuring her alter ego Cynthia—a Sky Mall-reading, Antiques Roadshow-watching hypochondriac who sports patterned muumuus, orthopedic sneakers, and an unflattering bobbed wig—Moulton here presents a video relating Cynthia’s latest escapade accompanied by sculptural...

Paradise is a state of mind   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Olivier Millagou at Espace d’art Le Moulin November 27th, 2012 - January 20th, 2013
Posted 12/30/12
A former olive oil mill in the south of France in December is not exactly where one would expect to pick up good vibes of the Californian surfer variety, but courtesy of Olivier Millagou’s solo exhibition, Le Moulin is currently oozing beachy mellowness. An avid surfer since childhood, Millagou is known for appropriating nostalgic motifs from American surf culture—from palm trees and rip curls, to long boards and station wagons, to bikini-clad babes and the Beach Boys. Working across a... [more]
Unrepentant Forces of Nature   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Daniel Arsham at Galerie Perrotin - Turenne November 3rd, 2012 - December 22nd, 2012
Posted 12/3/12
To mark the 20th anniversary of what is perhaps the defining traumatic moment in Daniel Arsham’s life—Hurricane Andrew as experienced from his Miami home—the artist’s new series of unnerving sculptures and paintings reflect the storm’s devastating aftermath. Reprising themes and materials from previous works, Arsham’s current exhibition features figurative sculptures made from broken glass, trompe l’oeil architectural interventions, and gouache on Mylar moonscapes. Having just returned from a... [more]

Posted 10/26/08
In addition to the blockbuster exhibit currently at MOMA, curator Joachim Pissarro, along with Hunter MA students Mara Hoberman and Julia Moreno, organized a companion show to his  that plays off our beloved Dutch Post-Impressionist’s fascination with the night. To:Night - Contemporary Representations of the Night fills both Hunter’s sprawling Times Square Gallery and the college’s more elegant, midtown exhibition space, with works by over 40 international contemporary artists. The show... [more]
