    "Face" Up to the Challenge

    "Face" Up to the Challenge

    Tequila Gives Art a Shot

    Tequila Gives Art a Shot
    A slug of tequila has always offered a certain measure of support to artists toiling in obscurity. However, that point has rarely been made as literally as by Proximo Spirits, which has been giving emerging artists a platform through the Essential Artists editions series for its best-selling 1800 Tequila. The 1800 bottle’s design has always been functional — the stopper doubles ...

    Obsessive-Compulsive Design Disorder

    Design Miami: Small Is Good
    Miami, FL—Even the constant background noise of jets flying over the Design District didn’t spoil the buoyant atmosphere in Design Miami's sleek temporary tent structure last week. This petite venue, housing just 14 international design galleries in its fifth year (down from 23 last year), was tiny compared to the newly expanded, behemoth Art Basel Miami Beach fair, but it packs ...

    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.

    Color Field Artist, Kenneth Noland

    Color Field Artist, Kenneth Noland
    The great Color Field (and in my opinion, one of the most underrated colorists of the 20th century) artist Kenneth Noland died a few weeks ago.

I always liked the sort of “impersonalness” of ...

    John Baldessari and Alejandro Cesarco have collaborated on a suite of 12 silkscreens on aluminum presently on view at Murray Guy on 17th Street.
