    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.

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 ...

    The Boys from Brazil

    The Boys from Brazil
    The Campana brothers have turned down-cycling into design art. Any informed design appraisal invariably touches on materials. During much of the 20th century, innovative designs were consistently linked to breakthroughs in material engineering or fabrication. Think of how molded plywood and fiberglass unleashed the Eameses’ imagination or how injection molding allowed Verner Panton to create the first single-form, single-material chair. That ...

It's been nearly 80 years since the critic and philosopher Walter Benjamin wrote "The Work of Art in the Age of Digital Reproduction," in which he explored the void left by our ability to create photographic representations of images, which he felt lacked the aura or originality of the artist's ...

    An Alternative to Big Money Art Collecting

    An Alternative to Big Money Art Collecting
    If you rely on the art rags or, say, The New York Times, for news about the art world, it’s easy to get the impression that art is for the very few: not even scads of money can get you the art you want—you need clout, cache, or pedigree. Art fairs are feeding frenzies, where hedge fund managers jockey to buy ...
