Giving FOOD its due: “FOOD 1971/2013”   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Tina Girouard, Carol Goodden, Jonathan Horowitz, Matthew Day Jackson at Frieze New York May 9th, 2013 - May 13th, 2013

This year’s Frieze New York fair sees the Projects portion of its programming celebrating FOOD, the historic restaurant-artwork hybrid most associated with artist Gordon Matta-Clark. While the Projects’ inaugural theme was turning Randall’s Island into a “fantasy world,” according to curator Cecilia Alemani, its second year focuses on “basic actions such as eating, drinking, speaking and praying… [engaging] the ritualistic dimension of the fair and the unique landscape of the island.” FOOD fits...

It was afternoon. In Copenhagen. A charming, too-handsome-for-words mutual acquaintance relayed the news that Denmark had been crowned the richest country in the EU. I couldn’t vouch for this, but its capital appeared to be the most sustainable of all the conscientiously green cities I’d visited in northern Europe. Of course I wasn’t travelling all the way from America to Scandinavia for wind farms, organic elderberry juice, or even the first-time thrill of ordering drinks at an honest-to-God... [more]
When I turned up at Grimm Gallery in Amsterdam to meet with Brooklyn-based artist, Matthew Day Jackson, I had the unfortunate timing of arriving only moments after a large and important crate of artwork was delivered – a day late and mere hours before Jackson’s multi-sited show, Heel Gezellig, was scheduled to open. For non-Dutch readers, gezellig translates somewhere within the vast yet inviting ballpark of “comfortable,” “intimate,” and “convivial,” and despite the last minute scramble to... [more]
Everything Leads to Another   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Matthew Day Jackson at Hauser & Wirth (Savile Row) May 20th, 2011 - July 30th, 2011
Posted 5/29/11
Hauser & Wirth have hit upon an artist whose ambition and productivity are more than a match for their gargantuan galleries. With a dizzying array of sculptures, photographs, and assemblages, Jackson epitomises the propensity for the big, the grandiloquent, and the epic that is discernable in many American writers and artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, from Norman Mailer to Matthew Barney.The centrepiece of the show is a reconditioned B29 cockpit titled . Marooned... [more]
Death Does Its Part   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Matthew Day Jackson at Peter Blum Gallery- Soho September 17th, 2010 - November 13th, 2010
Posted 11/7/10
          From the perspective of the empiricist, it’s not often once finds oneself walking underneath an artwork, neck craned back for an upward gaze, shoulders brushing hulking wooden sculptures. Even in the realm of installation art the narrow corridor isn’t a common spatial creation, but it’s precisely what Matthew Day Jackson evokes in his new large-scale work, The Tomb, at Peter Blum’s Soho Gallery. The Tomb is more than just a passageway; it’s a freestanding sculptural piece large... [more]
Jackson's Practice   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Matthew Day Jackson at GRIMM (KEIZERSGRACHT) October 10th, 2009 - November 21st, 2009

I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe. R. Buckminster Fuller,  I Seem To Be a Verb (1970) Attempting to categorize the diverse production of Matthew Day Jackson is a difficult - perhaps futile - though not entirely ineffective exercise. As in Buckminster Fuller’s speculation about his own nature, Jackson’s work is a... [more]
