    Rating The Underrated

    Rating The Underrated
    So many critics end the year with its high points that someone should compile the top ten "best of" lists. It will not be me—but not because I prefer to look ahead. Not when art's future makes so little sense. Everyone loves to speculate about speculate about the state of the art. Right now, that has to take into account the ...

    John Baldessari and Alejandro Cesarco, “Retrospective,” at Murray Guy

    John Baldessari and Alejandro Cesarco, “Retrospective,” at Murray Guy
    John Baldessari and Alejandro Cesarco have collaborated on a suite of 12 silkscreens on aluminum presently on view at Murray Guy on 17th Street. The simple visual presence of the panels disguises the rich conceptual alchemy charging the gallery. The setup is the same for each: floating inside the borders of the panel is a xeroxed image of an open book, ...

    Review: Eileen Quinlan at Miguel Abreu Gallery

    Review: Eileen Quinlan at Miguel Abreu Gallery
    Miguel Abreu Gallery presents a group of Eileen Quinlan photographs, open until December 9, down on Orchard Street. Most of the works are from an ongoing series titled Smoke & Mirrors. Those that do not bear this title are nonetheless very similar visually. As a group, the work inhabits a narrow field, where its vulnerabilities are alternately convincing and disappointing. The ...

    My Racialized Fantasy - Kara Walker

    My Racialized Fantasy - Kara Walker
    New York - For so congenial an artist, Kara Walker sure stirs up a lot of emotion. Black artists tend to do that, but not often her way. She showed it barely a year before, as a guest curator at the Met. There she charted a history from slavery and popular culture to the devastation of Katrina. Now, in a retrospective ...

    Interview With Vince Frost

    Interview With Vince Frost
    “I’ve seen you somewhere before,” ventures Vince Frost as we wrap up our interview. Perhaps I look like someone. “You look like you,” he bounces back with a quizzical grin, somehow managing to sum up the last half-hour in four words. Because for the Brighton-born, Toronto-raised, Sydney-based design icon, it all boils down to identity. His 30-strong studio in sun-soaked Sydney ...

    Review: The Idea of No Idea, Curator/Artist: Stefan Bruggemann

    Review: The Idea of No Idea, Curator/Artist: Stefan Bruggemann
    Shallow at I-20 Gallery This is a group exhibition curated by Stefan Brüggemann, an artist represented by I-20. Participating artists are Pierre Bismuth, Stefan Brüggemann, Martin Creed, Miltos Manetas and Malcolm McLaren. “Curating” is a concept without stable meaning. The motives, techniques, and results are as widely, and wildly, variable as most genres of artistic production. Does this mean that it ...

    What to Do: You Are Told That Your Work Sucks

    What to Do: You Are Told That Your Work Sucks
    In 1994, I attended an artist residency where visiting artists came by on a weekly basis and offered critiques. The first day, a woman came into my studio and immediately trashed my paintings, which she had looked at in slide format ahead of her visit. After she had told me how awful and derivative my paintings were, she looked over at ...

    The Studio Museum in Harlem Does Something Very Special

    The Studio Museum in Harlem Does Something Very Special
    The "Studio Museum in Harlem":http://www.studiomuseum.org does something very special: it goes quietly about its business. Not that the museum lacks for guts and ambition. It is, after all, asking for attention to contemporary black artists. Yet its shows often have a modesty others might do well to emulate. They invite one to relax, respond, and settle in, and that is exactly ...

    What do Leonardo's Hidden Meanings have to do with Pollock?

    What do Leonardo's Hidden Meanings have to do with Pollock?
    Pollock's Patterns and Rembrandt's Eyes Leonardo's Broken Symmetry I cringe the moment scientists come to rescue the world from the uncertainty of art. I do not mean that science fails to explain how the world works, for it does. Nor do I mean that science and art lack common interests, shared methods, and mutual inspiration. A related essay traces these in ...

    Review: Francis Cape, Matthew Higgs

    Review: Francis Cape, Matthew Higgs
    Francis Cape at Murray Guy (plus Higgs) (and McMakin, though absent) There’s a nice group show at Murray Guy. Matthew Higgs includes some framed pages. They’re fun, and my favorite thing about them is the way they always demand an acceptance of all the little incidental material facts of their presentation: the raggedy glue along the torn edge of the page, ...

    Richard Pousette-Dart and Peter Young

    Richard Pousette-Dart and Peter Young
    Richard Pousette-Dart will always come with a label, the New York school. Most people know little else about him, and few artists would care to shake off a label like that. Besides, he earned it. Most New Yorkers, however, will come to him walking up the ramp, to a Guggenheim tower gallery. They will see the largest room first and his ...
