February 4 - April 14, 2012
Matthew Marks Gallery
522 W 22nd Street, 502 W 22nd Street

Lehmann Maupin Gallery

ALBERT OEHLEN
Albert Oehlen
March 3 - April 7, 2012
Gagosian Gallery
980 Madison Avenue

Standing in front of the paintings by Albert Oehlenin his first exhibition with Gagosian Gallery, several questions arise. The immediate questions are of the artist's intent. For example, what is it? READ MORE...

 


TOM BURR
deep wood drive
March 7 - April 26
Bortolami Gallery
420 W 20th Street

It is unlikely that conceptual artist and sculptor Tom Burr intends much psychological comfort for the viewers of his show "deep wood drive" at Bortolami Gallery. Although the most seductive works in the show are called "Cloud Paintings", there is little airiness in the artist's mournful, self-interrogating, minimalist aesthetic to keep one's spirits light. READ MORE...


Reborn, the first volume of Susan Sontag's posthumously published journals, offered new, albeit cryptic insights into the genesis of her heavy-going artistic personality. That first journal included fascinating scenes of Sontag's early immersion in 1940s lesbian bars, but when she marries scholar Philip Rieff, the text of Reborn abruptly cuts off personal reflection and buries itself in lists and tormented justifications.

Love and Gentrification in Bushwick: A Metanarrative

BY KATIE CERCONE

I was at Angel's perusing the fruit. The strawberries looked white in places. I still had two days until your actual birthday. Chocolate on chocolate you said, and I wanted to add strawberries because that had been my nickname for you since the beginning. That's what I put in my phone because your real name – Mark? Wasn't exotic, sexy or hood. READ MORE...

Art for the 99 Percent

BY LENA VAZIFDAR

Nomadic studios, mobile homesteads, inner-city gentrification, corporate underbellies, queer fashion abstraction and Detroit nostalgiai dominated the Whitney Biennial this year, not that corporate bohemia is lawfully chic any longer. READ MORE...

CASTA DIVA: Werner Schroeter at The Museum of Modern Art

During May and June, The Museum of Modern Art is presenting a near-complete retrospective of the films of Werner Schroeter, the most underground and perhaps the most influential of all the German New Wave directors of the 1970s. READ MORE...


WAITING FOR WHIY: DAMSELS IN DISTRESS

Whit Stillman made three very unusual films in the 1990s: Metropolitan (1990), an insider's stylized look at upper crust young people, Barcelona (1994), a deceptively small, rigorously worked-out rumination on love and friendship, and The Last Days of Disco (1998), an analysis of early 1980s club mores which cost a fair amount and wasn't a financial success.

BY RICHARD LESLIE

Ephemeral encounters with small curious objects gifted to the world. The spark of a moment that unfolds all too briefly, then the smile and maybe a single syllable utterance: the ineffable and inexpressible brought to you by the will-to-form and re-form in the midst of the urban hustle. Free! Or maybe not. Is there a free gift? READ MORE...

The Occupations of Asher Edelman

BY LINDA DIGUSTA

Asher Edelman can be described as standing, prominently, between 2 worlds. His Wall Street career, beginning in the 1960's, in investment banking, money management and derivatives trading not only brought renown but enabled him to build significant collections of contemporary and Modern art as well as antiquities.

BY KATIE CERCONE

When I set out to write about French painter Francois Gilot I had a lot of make-up work to do. Mostly because I have never given a hoot about Picasso or any of the other straight white patriarchs of the Western European tradition. I never had to. Along my trajectory, Art began with Judy Chicago's Menstruation Bathroom and earned its stripes when Ellen Gallagher hit Pomp-Bang. READ MORE...
