“Interventions in the Landscape,” the group exhibition at Galerie Lelong, is an examination of the rather acrimonious relationship humans have with the natural world.  Documenting their creations, performances, and investigations through the uses of photography and film, seventeen artists expose the social, political, and emotional implications man-made actions have on our surroundings.

Some are filled with air, others with water, yet others with beans.

Everything in Brazil's modern culture it seems is celebrated with an exclamation point. And the current show at YBCA promises just that: "originality of the culture of people who live in the tropics." Here, the Tropicaìlia art movement is loudly explored, portraying a uniquely Brazilian art culture. I was, however, left reeling not from the surprise of innovation but by the bold, dizzying colors and the overwhelming aroma of coconut and suntan oil (actual smells!). More cloying were... [more]
