In March, announced that both Jeff Koons and Cindy Sherman would be creating new series of work for placement in various international American Embassies; in corporate terms, this is like being asked to make a contribution to the décor of the global headquarters of Brand America, and the announcement is of note to me personally because a) I genuinely enjoy the work of Cindy Sherman, b) I enjoy the aesthetics of Brand America from a largely kitsch perspective, and c) I am now committed to...

With the world reeling from recent global events that have severely impacted on our collective conscience—the barrage of scenes of manmade destruction, death, and disaster a vivid testimony of the dark side of humanity—visiting at Hayward Gallery was oddly cathartic. Of course, the curators were not prophets, but in bringing together twenty-five years of sculpture through twenty-five artists they have created a perspicacious and timely exhibition that reflects on something primordial: the...

Occasionally we are given a glimpse into the artist as mere mortal.  The same men and women who produce art that is sold for millions at auction and are discussed and dissected for hours by scholars and the common man do, indeed, walk among us; and “From Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler” is proof.   The most admired and glorified modern and contemporary artists are also jewelers.  Who knew?  And this small, yet impressive, exhibition is a precious reminder that art need not take on...

On the face of it, this exhibition, Néon. Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue? is just plain fun. With the Maison Rouge all lit up in different colored neon lights, both industrially produced and hand-crafted  tubes bringing the walls to life, inviting us to walk into spaces saturated in impossible colors. A visit to Néon is ostensibly a joyful, light way to spend an afternoon. Then as we quickly realize, neon has more to it than meets the eye. Neon lights may look pretty, but they... [more]
- The star of the show crouched low, sleek, surveying the crowd with feigned indifference. Cameras clicked and elbows shoved as the strains of Led Zeppelin’s Bring It Home filled the hall. The star twirled for the crowd, and almost purred.  Every curve and nuance was accented in bold, form-fitting vinyl, not a pucker or tuck to be seen.  Racing bands of red, yellow, black, blue pulled the eye from head to toe and back again...in the words of Jeff Koons "raw energy personified."  And the pièce...

‘The choreography of mediatised reality’   --Will Self, ‘The Bounds of Inner Space’ Gagosian Gallery Catalogue 2010 We are not living in the real world, but merely exist in a virtual dimension, held like flies in aspic by shifting screens and filters which drip feed sensations of experience: violence, pleasure, the monstrous, the curious. These filters are precisely created episodes of a world theatre, a continuous and totally involving soap opera. ‘CRASH: Homage to... [more]

      It may be obvious that curators in the art world would appear pretty ridiculous even attempting to moonlight as professional basketball players, but the reverse, it turns out, is not true: professional basketball players can, in fact, moonlight as curators. The Flag Art Foundation is responsible for revealing this perplexity, and the show Size DOES Matter, curated by Cleveland Cavalier Shaquille O’Neal, proves that pro-ball players do not play the curation game like curators...

‘I wanted to show that people don’t have to lose force or lose direction or be traumatised by life experience, but that they can maintain their integrity and get through things and not lose their way.’ Jeff Koons*I wanted to hate it, as meretricious post-pop trivia, but I couldn’t help being caught by the striking illusions with their chilling subtexts in Jeff Koons’ powerful new Popeye suite at the Serpentine Gallery. Koons is the postmodern operator par excellence; I doubt that he... [more]

      Kim Light moved into Maloney Fine Art's space, and in their first venture together they have mounted a group show, .  The group of artists is diverse, but the works are tied together by, you guessed it, the color blue.  In such a small space, this is actually a good approach to a group show.  It's hung salon style, works stacked on top of each other, creating a patchwork of sorts.  Sure, the pieces distract from each other and there isn't much space to really step back and look at, for...

Jeff Koons’ work may make people mad, but it seems to make other people happy. This is apparently for the same reasons. His sculptural works are simple, perfectly crafted exploitations or executions of all that Pop promises, at its most fun and banal. (1994-2007), the twelve foot, heart shaped candy wrapper and the Balloon Dog (Yellow) (1994-2000) seem so resistant to meaning that they can be either playful or idiotic, crass market objects or Oldenburg-inspired toys for kids big and small....

The Jeff Koons survey at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art comes exactly twenty years after his first survey there in 1988, and assembles a large body of work that spans his career. Since 1979 Koons has worked within series, “Pre-New, The New,” “Luxury and Degradation,” “Equilibrium,” etc., all of which are represented within this survey with key examples. Many important and influential pieces are gathered in this exhibit and they are the best examples from the various series that he... [more]
