What Do Artists Collect?   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
by
Arman, Peter Blake, Hanne Darboven, Edmund de Waal, Damien Hirst, Howard Hodgkin, Dr Lakra, Sol LeWitt, Martin Parr, Jim Shaw, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Danh Vo, Andy Warhol, Pae White, Martin Wong at Barbican Art Gallery February 12th, 2015 - May 25th, 2015

Somewhere in this huge warehouse a noise starts up. Between the rows of crates that recede as far as the eye can see in all directions lies a carpet of dust, as thick and undisturbed as night-fallen snow. The shelves bow with the weight of their load, disappearing up, beyond the soft penumbra of the sodium glow that punctuates the darkness at regular intervals. Somewhere in this maze of gargantuan blocks, pine-smelling and at rest—somewhere in this vast repository of knowledge, this uncared-for... [more]

It's Summer! Who You Gonna Call?   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Marina Abramović, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Sophie Calle, Tacita Dean, Stan Douglas, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Zoe Leonard, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jeff Wall, Andy Warhol at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum March 26th, 2010 - September 6th, 2010

        Summer is known for its mass weekend exodus of metropolitan art viewers and influx of New York CityPass-toting tourists. Galleries and museums tend to drag out everything but the kitchen sink from June to August, dusting off works from basement vaults and permanent collections and mounting crowd-pleasing group shows more eclectic than those from the regular season. The result can be refreshing, haphazard, banal, idiosyncratic or cutting edge. Haunted, Contemporary... [more]

The Salty Atmosphere of Moby Dick   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Kenneth Anger, Matthew Benedict, Mark Bradford, Marcel Broodthaers, Angela Bulloch, Tom Burr, Tacita Dean, Marcel Dzama, Edgar Cleijne and Ellen Gallagher, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Rodney Graham, John Gutmann, Susan Hiller, Evan Holloway, Peter Hutton, Colter Jacobsen, Brian Jungen, Buster Keaton, Rockwell Kent, Mateo Lopez, Jorge Macchi, Kris Martin, Henrik Olesen, Paulina Olowska, Damián Ortega, Jean Painlevé, Kirsten Pieroth, Adrián Villar Rojas, Richard Serra, Andreas Slominski, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Orson Welles at CCA Wattis Institute September 22nd, 2009 - December 12th, 2009
Posted 10/12/09
With Moby-Dick, the Wattis presents the second of three shows rousting the spirits of great American literature. Although painted like a Nautica bedroom set with navy walls and white text, each room conjures the salty atmosphere of a heaving ship with alternately droning and ranting snippets from Orson Welles's recitation of Moby Dick. These elements (whale, walls, and Welles) attempt to interlace work from thirty-three international artists—no small feat. Of course, I don't envy the... [more]

Strong Light   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Hiroshi Sugimoto at Fraenkel Gallery September 10th, 2009 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Sugimoto’s “Lightning Fields” depict electricity, an element that — especially for photographers working with large-format negatives —  has historically been problematic and uncontrollable. Static electricity is well known to scar photographers’ negatives, and consequently to destroy their images. (This is one reason why carpets are not installed in darkrooms.) Viewing the challenge as an opportunity rather than a problem, Sugimoto has inverted the process and made nature’s static... [more]

Elementals   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
by
Walead Beshty, Adam Ekberg, Luisa Lambri, Hiroshi Sugimoto at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) June 13th, 2009 - October 4th, 2009
Posted 8/31/09
      On the second floor of Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) is “Elements of Photography,” curated by Curatorial Assistant Michael Green.  This area of the MCA is usually reserved for smaller, “focus” type of shows as befits the minimal square footage of that gallery and this exhibition follows that trend.  Pulled from the museum’s permanent collection, the photographs on display, “focus on the elemental materials of nature: light and water. [Which are] also the fundamental... [more]

No Room   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

The group show No Room acknowledges that we tend to be conflicted when it comes to modern architecture. On one hand, the sleek, orderly, programmed spaces become easy symbols for the fall of Modernist optimism, serving as a vehicle for general critique ranging from the failure of housing projects to Facism. On the other hand, many people still seek the lifestyles to which Modern Architecture aspired, lifestyles which conform, in the words of the shows’ curators, to a “nearly insatiable... [more]
