Cars have been a fascination for artists since they sputtered onto the road. They are cultural objects, gleaming social markers, symbolic vessels of all that is modernity. Usually, there are one or two “art cars” in Miami, but in all the years I’ve made the rounds the most memorable was easily , the fully customized Cadillac low-rider Jeffrey Deitch parked in front of Art Basel back in 2007. It was tricked out by the Chicago-based Puerto-Rican artist Dzine and it was cool. Like good graffiti,... [more]

It may be true, as OHWOW's press release breathlessly claims, that theirs is “a group exhibition distinct of a decade and definitive of era,” but if so, it's an era that, thus defined, is distinguished mainly by its forgettability. Poorly curated, with equally little to offer to fans of the nine artists represented in the show as to the uninitiated, fails to make the case for the significance of the ten or so post-millennial years of New York art-making with which it's concerned.The problem...

    Abstract America: New Paintings and Sculpture is not for me, but I have to admit that the Saatchi Gallery’s done a phenomenal job gathering up artwork by the biggest and brightest in contemporary American abstract artists.  As this was my first visit to Saatchi’s swanky digs in Chelsea, I must also mention that the gallery is phenomenal – perhaps even the best venue for viewing art that I’ve ever come across.  Many of the works in the exhibition seemed too clever for my taste, but the...

Top Ten:1. Tino Sehgal: Marian Goodman Gallery. I often see shows I don’t like but this was the only show I’ve ever seen that didn’t like me! Last winter Tino Sehgal had performers stand in the rear room of this gallery and discuss art and philosophy. Viewers were acknowledged as they entered and occasionally included in conversations. After answering one of the performers he basically upbraided me. I was horrified, mortified and thrilled. Sehgal has taken "relational esthetics" to a whole new... [more]

A Fairy Tale of New York   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Dan Colen at Gagosian Gallery - Davies Street December 18th, 2008 - February 7th, 2009
Posted 1/24/09
        An encounter with Dan Colen's new work at  Gagosian Gallery, Davies Street, was strange to say the least. An attendant opened the large glass door to an elegant exhibition space with only one work presented for view. The effect of emptiness was immediate and disorienting and attention wandered to find anchor points; a white chair, a small stack of booklets on a plinth, and back to the painting to absorb its suggestive impact.  Colen's two-part exhibition has run since November with...

On the heels of his exhibition, Joe Bradley spent the last month curating Peanut Gallery, a new group show of what he calls "funny, intimately scaled pieces made of humble materials" for The Journal Gallery. "There's a heckler vibe to a lot of the work," says Bradley, who's assembled everything from a Miles Davis portrait by Keith Mayerson and a Eunice Kim installation of a cardboard robot face (with red and blue lightbulb eyes) to one of Dan Colen's bubble-gum-enhanced canvases, and the...
