SITElines, the new SITE Santa Fe biennial… Natalie Hegert: A point that I want to talk about is how [SITElines] functions as a model for a biennial. How different is this from another themed exhibition you would encounter in any other museum, versus a biennial? Why does this necessarily need to be considered a biennial? It seems more like an investigation of a certain theme that includes artists from across the Americas. What is interesting about this show or this model that they’re trying to... [more]

SITE Santa Fe’s new biennial series, , signals a new format for recurrent exhibitions that reduces the term “biennial” to its simplest definition: every two years. For almost twenty years, the institution was faithful to the timely concentration of international artists and rising curators served in a publicized melting pot. After all, SITE lays claim to the first international biennial of contemporary art in the United States: Longing and Belonging: From the Faraway Nearby (1995). Its... [more]

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...

Imagining Poland   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
by
Allan Sekula at Renaissance Society September 20th, 2009 - December 13th, 2009
Posted 10/25/09
        For his show at the Renaissance Society, Allan Sekula placed little 8 1/2” x 11” printed paper texts around the exterior walls. These texts and his manuscript “Polonia and Other Fables” show Mr. Sekula’s attachment to the written word, which forms a context for his photography. The show, also titled “Polonia and other Fables,” reflects Sekula’s interest in capitalist economic systems and the structuring of societies that emerge from those systems. There are endearing portraits here,... [more]

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]
