Figures like Justice Sonia Sotomayor, James Baldwin, and Maya Angelou’s take center stage in the artist’s new MTA mosaics for the 167th Street station.
Many New Yorkers were sad to hear of Tekserve’s imminent closing, especially artists who work in new media, video, or otherwise incorporate the use of Apple products into their practices.
One of the group shows I was most anticipating during the 2014 Bushwick Open Studios was Communal Table, a group show curated by artist Björn Meyer-Ebrecht, and last night I attended the early opening to discover that it was most certainly worth the wait.
This Friday’s inaugural Lost Lectures event in New York will feature not only an impressive lineup of performers and speakers, but a video program that will play throughout the evening on a large screen.
Recently I was talking to a sculptor friend and made a flippant remark that it seemed to me as if “abstract painting is back.” A seasoned 65 to my slight 27, he smiled as he asked: “Again?”
Even if your bohemian dolce vita in Bushwick is all you ever wanted, sometimes it’s necessary to (temporarily) leave this blooming neighborhood, and visit Ridgewood, another neighborhood emerging as part of the city’s art geography.
This indie fair of seven galleries with solid programs — and some art stars among them — have created a wonderful little side fair that has a well-organized area for video works (which is both inviting and well spaced), a space for the #Rank event (which we’ve mentioned before), rooms for work by various artists to talk to one another (some better than others), but most importantly an attempt to collide gallery stables to see what they could come up with together (most notably on one wall covered salon style with pieces from the whole constellation of “Seven” artists).
Did all the artists fit perfectly together? No, but this is an art fair and not a curated exhibition. It was good to see some galleries try something that felt interesting and less commercial than the run-of-the-mill art fairs.
Curator and artist Will Pappenheimer’s Tunneling at the underground Bushwick space Famous Accountants is a densely layered exhibition heavy on technology and illusion. While the group exhibition aligns perfectly with the gallery’s affection for mind-altering art, Pappenheimer’s curation fits perfectly into the long narrow space and brings together work that invites you to unpack them visually.

It was a cold, snowy and slushy night in SoHo when the Brucennial opened. People were long anticipating the Bruce High Quality Foundation’s latest project which appropriated the Whitney Museum’s branding, packed a storefront retail space on West Broadway with a truckload of art, and placed almost everything up for sale.
A continuation of the seemingly impossible task of reviewing the ENTIRE Brucennial art exhibition: 51. Sam Hayes – Reminding me of the Sharon Olds poem, The Pope’s Penis; 52. Unknown – Hula Hoop art. I have no objectivity. ROCKS! …
