ISTANBUL — The authorship of the exhibition, which initially seems clear and dictated by the space, is flipped by the meanings and messages of the works on view.
LOS ANGELES — From a show of ancient Greek bronzes at the J. Paul Getty Museum to Rafa Esparza’s adobe brick constructions at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), Los Angeles was overflowing with dynamic exhibitions this year that introduced new talents and reconsidered the old.
apexart presents: “You can’t get there from here but you can get here from there” (YCGTFH), a new show curated by Courtenay Finn and featuring work by: Sophie Calle, Patty Chang, Rodney Graham, Joachim Koester, Kris Martin, Bruce Nauman, and Allen Ruppersberg. It opens today — Wednesday, September 15 (6-8pm).
A group of unidentified New York art bloggers were spotted at the 2010 Whitney Biennial press preview staging an absurd protest of a painting that was lent to the show by New York’s 303 Gallery. The work, Maureen Gallace, “August” (2009), was the unfortunate recipient of the bloggers’ wrath but the protesters told me that their action was not directed towards Gallace but her gallery, 303, which continues to maintain a strict anti-photography policy that is despised by many of the city’s art bloggers.
