Posted 5/25/14
On a beautiful, sunny, typically Greek day in early May, I walked up the steps to the Gennadius Library of The American School of Classical Studies, in the heart of Athens, looking forward to seeing a newly opened exhibition titled . While I attempted to decipher its flow, a woman behind me, sensing my confusion, asked if I wanted to join in with her group since they were about to begin a tour. As luck would have it, this lady was in fact Elina Kountouri, the co-curator of the exhibition and... [more]

The theme of the Walker Art Center’s exhibition “The Quick and the Dead” got personal, quickly, when I observed that an On Kawara date painting near the entry was the same date as an uncle’s birthday. Made by Kawara to mark the passage of time, the ongoing series implies its own end in the artist’s death, just as birthdays imply to many of us that there are only so many left. This exhibition announces its’ intentions to examine The Big Questions of Life at the outset in the title, but... [more]

Mark Wallinger curates The Russian Linesman   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
by
Vija Celmins, Thomas Demand, Albrecht Durer, Bruce Nauman, Giuseppe Penone, Fred Sandback at Hayward Gallery February 18th, 2009 - May 4th, 2009
Posted 2/26/09
Coming from a bright spring day on the South Bank where weekend visitors enjoy the street performers and living statues, and ride the fun fair carousel, the mood of light hearted reverie is echoed by Mark Wallinger’s idiosyncratic collection. Entitled The Russian Linesman from a notorious 1966 football match decision, the show draws on disparate sources ranging from Albrecht Dűrer to Fred Sandback, from a three millennia old Sphinx  to  fearful unedited news footage of the recent civil...

Surprise in Penone   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
by
Giuseppe Penone at Galerie Marian Goodman - Paris May 30th, 2008 - July 25th, 2008
Posted 7/15/08
  Giuseppe Penone's work is full of surprises, rarely what it appears to be at first sight. The three pieces currently on display at Marian Goodman are no exception, when they embrace the element of deception that comes hand in hand with Penone's preoccupation with the fusion of the animal and the vegetal, the human and the mineral. On the gallery's upper floor, a sculpture, "La Geometria nelle mani/The Geometry in the hands," (2007) is accompanied by three large hung canvases: "Pelle di... [more]
