Much has been said about the so-called “Belgian collector.” For captains of industry and local dentists alike, collecting contemporary art almost seems to be part of the Belgian DNA—which explains why the country is reputed for having the highest concentration of art collectors per square kilometer. Yet, as more and more Parisian collectors make the move to Brussels, the Belgian collector is becoming increasingly French. In addition to Art Brussels’ , the strong presence of collectors in...

Review also includes “Picture Industry (Goodbye to All That).” Organized by Walead Beshty at Regen Projects.   Both of these artist-curated, large group shows gather an impressive all-my-cool-friends and heavy-hitters list of players and both claim, in their statements, to be in large part organized in response to an ambivalent experience or conflicted impression of Los Angeles as a formative urban, cultural context. Both shows are full of really good individual works. Couched in terms of... [more]

Curator Daniel Birnbaum chose a clever theme in this year’s curated biennale exhibition. It has almost endless scope and he did a fairly good job of making sure that the artists fit the topic – even if that did sometimes mean equating “making installations” with “making worlds”. The art was generally of high quality, interactive, thought provoking and yes, even fun.The first and most entrancing work was Lydia Pape’s “Ttéia I, C. 2002” – a black void shot through with glinting...

Posted 5/23/09
    Le projet d'Aleksandra Mir, "Plane Landing", repose sur la création d'un ballon gonflé à l'hélium, reprenant les formes et dimensions d'un avion de ligne. Suspendu au-dessus du sol en constante position d'atterrissage, l'avion a d'abord été présenté en juillet 2004 dans un cadre typiquement anglais, avant d'entamer un tour du monde vers d'autres paysages de cartes postales. En juillet 2008, l'avion a atterri à l'aéroport de Zürich puis en octobre à Paris, où il a été photographié... [more]

Aleksandra Mir at Mary Boone Gallery - 24th St. September 15th, 2007 - October 27th, 2007
Posted 10/21/07
Aleksandra Mir’s project at Mary Boone gallery in Chelsea, "," is at once an homage to New York City and an exercise in collaboration. After scanning over 200 covers at the New York Public Library from the often trashy and sensationalist—not to mention biased—tabloids, the New York Post and the Daily News, Mir and a team of assistants set up shop in Boone’s large Chelsea outpost.     On a large table in the gallery they recreate these covers using black Sharpie-brand markers on large sheets...
