• Flesh And Bone: Francis Bacon And Henry Moore

      Saturday, 5 October 2013 09:00

      Flesh and Bone pits a happily married establishment figure and Royal College of Art tutor, against a self-taught sadomasochistic gambler with a fondness for alcohol and the sleek underbelly of Soho. It is difficult not to see this exhibition as a competition of interests and the interesting; the very personalities of both artists are quite evident—one only needs […]

    • Sun Up / Sun Down: Judith Hopf at the Deborah Schamoni Gallery

      Friday, 4 October 2013 09:00

      Parody and irony entertainingly put what is narrated at a distance. Which of these two rhetorical devices does Judith Hopf employ, when she places a flock of eight sheep appearing to gaze at the entering visitors in the main gallery space? All of these sheep, whose caricature-like faces are hand-drawn, seem to have been made […]

    • Raphael Hefti’s Quick Fix Remix at Ancient & Modern Gallery

      Wednesday, 2 October 2013 09:00

      Whitecross Street in east London is just a memory stick’s throw from an area that has recently been dubbed the “silicon roundabout” for playing host to a growing coterie of tech companies. However one fine, late-summer afternoon all of that humming immaterial labor looked awfully anaemic in proximity as a crane-equipped flatbed truck unloaded 25 […]

    • David Renggli’s Scaramouche at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen

      Tuesday, 1 October 2013 09:00

      The first thing that strikes you upon entering this multi-faceted show by David Renggli (b. 1974 in Zurich) at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen is one of Renggli’s signature reverse glass paintings in black and white titled I Love You (b/w), 2013. Contrary to the usual colorfulness of the abstract color strokes, the hues in this […]

    • Yoko Ono at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

      Monday, 30 September 2013 14:29

      Travel to the edges of any major European city, and you reach placid suburban hell. This is true even for ultra-civilized Copenhagen. The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in the suburb of Humlebæk is reachable in under an hour by train, from which you see the city ebb, flow, and dissipate. Tucked inside an otherwise […]

    • Eric Baudart at Galerie Valentin

      Friday, 27 September 2013 09:00

      Eric Baudart’s new exhibition More at Galerie Valentin is his fourth at the space and presents a comprehensive view of the artist’s ability to skillfully move between materials and forms with calculated whimsy and aplomb. Each work offers another glimpse into his very personal world, where readymades confront photographic images, where each of the artist’s […]

    • Post Mortem Document: Sara MacKillop’s Ex Library Book

      Thursday, 26 September 2013 09:00

      Sara MacKillop’s Ex Library Book tells the story of a place of words without using many. Published with Pork Salad Press, this work seems at first to be a random photo collection of stamps and insignificant slips found in any public library book, building up a detailed picture of the public library by showcasing every element […]

    • Michael Brown: Schematics and Silhouettes at Mike Weiss Gallery

      Wednesday, 25 September 2013 09:00

      Artist Michael Brown presents a discourse about the machine, history, and nostalgia in his first solo exhibition at Mike Weiss Gallery. Employing both sculpture and drawing, Schematics and Silhouettes reexamines the relationship between the infinite and the self-contained, with a clear rhetoric pulled from America’s westward expansion, our industrial past, and the conceptual work of […]
