Marcel Duchamp’s “The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even” provides a provocative foundation for an exhibition of female artists who riff on the liminal spaces between ideas and events.
MIAMI BEACH — One of the things I find hardest about art fairs — particularly those held in convention centers and large exhibition halls — is their aesthetic. Bright, clinical white everywhere, with temporary walls set at perfect right angles and the gridwork of pipes and rafters floating high above. It’s hygienic enough to make you swoon over even the most banal abstraction.
Sarah Crowner’s newest exhibition at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery on the Lower East Side continues the artist’s vein of inquiry but does so in a manner that is far more engaging and maybe a little bit riskier than the other stuff I have seen.
