Among the 103 participants in this year’s Whitney Biennial, the handful that have elicited the most speculation and skepticism are those known for producing not art objects but texts. In addition to publishing-oriented collectives, words take on a visual function in the poetry of Susan Howe, they form the structure of many of David Diao’s paintings and Gary Indiana’s sculptures. Artspace warned us to “Get ready to do some reading.” Carol Vogel, in her preview, told us to expect “Words and More...

Charlie Schultz: I guess I’ll start by saying I found this year’s iteration of the [Whitney] Biennial to be far less crowded than in past Biennials, which struck me as a surprise because I thought I read that there were more artists in this Biennial than in previous years. [Indian music plays in the background...] Natalie Hegert: I felt like the last edition was very spacious as well…This year I was very struck by this tendency for the curators to go from very large objects to these tiny...

Among the irrevocable losses Hurricane Sandy wrought from New York were works of art: thousands of objects damaged or destroyed in Chelsea galleries, studios in Red Hook and Greenpoint. Phong Bui, artist, curator, and publisher of the , was among those who lost work to the storm. He curated Come Together: Surviving Sandy, Year 1 as a statement of solidarity with a traumatized art community. Sprawled over 100,000 square feet on four floors in the massive Industry City building in Sunset Park,... [more]

August is the toughest month to find a gallery exhibition that will inspire most critics’ fingers to pound the keyboard. With so many galleries closed, and others emphasizing the coming season’s first exhibition in early September, there tends to be a general lack of interest in mounting a show, especially anything substantive. However, there are some good gallery exhibitions here and there, one being “It’s Always Summer on the Inside” at Anton Kern Gallery in Chelsea. Organized by Dan... [more]

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... [more]

On the heels of his 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 canvases, and the...

Just down the street from its original location at 14th and Guerrero, the Kiki Gallery--by all accounts a tiny, interdisciplinary space--has been resurrected by artist Colter Jacobsen and writer Kevin Killian at Ratio 3. Comprised almost entirely of works shown at Kiki, during its short yet fervent 18 month run, the exhibit chronicles Kiki owner, Rick Jacobsen’s vision and devotion to the arts in San Francisco. Opened in 1993, Kiki played host to a number of interestingly themed shows (the... [more]
