—Gordon Matta-Clark With the term conceptual art so much a part of our everyday language these days it’s sometimes possible to forget what motivated the early conceptual artists to adopt it. One of the key objectives of conceptual art was to subvert the artwork as a singular unique object, a fetishized commodity suited to ownership and trade. A painted image can be owned, assigned value, but what about the idea of an image, the mere concept of its production? Much of what Gordon... [more]

“I was there; it was everything you ever wanted,” the man—probably in his 50s—gestured toward the left panel of Gordon Matta-Clark’s photographic diptych, Day’s End (Pier 52). “These walkways—they were full of naked men. Beautiful, naked men.” I tried to picture the naked men in the square, 1975 photograph of a dark warehouse interior, but with the other man standing a few feet from me, I focused instead on the right panel, not wanting to seem interested in him. Was he flirting or just... [more]

When you are cremated, you aren’t actually reduced to ash. After the body has been incinerated dry bone fragments remain, which are ground up into dust. Sandwiched between two lens-shaped pieces of glass on a small pedestal is a group of what appears to be shards of coral, almost like a decoration you’d see on someone’s coffee table. These are actually human remains presented as a sculpture. In addition to this is another incarnation of the piece. Human Dust (1969), by Agnes Denes consists of... [more]

“Interventions in the Landscape,” the group exhibition at Galerie Lelong, is an examination of the rather acrimonious relationship humans have with the natural world.  Documenting their creations, performances, and investigations through the uses of photography and film, seventeen artists expose the social, political, and emotional implications man-made actions have on our surroundings. In each of the works, made between 1968 and 2010, not only has a human presence been unceremoniously forced... [more]

The Downtown Scene   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Laurie Anderson, Trisha Brown, Gordon Matta-Clark at Barbican Art Gallery March 3rd, 2011 - May 22nd, 2011
Posted 3/27/11
        Recreating the vibrant arts scene of 1970s New York, the Barbican Art Gallery invites you to explore the work of three artists who (amongst many) helped form the Downtown Scene. The early 1970s was time when art was moving off the plinth, anti-form art was establishing itself and Richard Serra was hurling lead into the corners of rooms. New York as a city was broke, busted and frequently threatening – a set of circumstances which made it ideal to foster the next generation 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...

Abstraction Everyday   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Gordon Matta-Clark, Robert Overby, Laura Riboli, Jennifer West at Rhona Hoffman Gallery September 5th, 2008 - October 11th, 2008

"Angles in America" is a group exhibition curated by Terry R. Myers at Rhona Hoffman that brings together American artists of various generations working with abstraction in serious but also playful ways that relate to the everyday. Simple enough a premise, perhaps a little too simple? It is a concept that is in fact risky because it could result in a banal and common show with a dull theme. It is the art, really, that makes an exhibition work or not. The pieces on view here do indeed engage... [more]
