Janet Werner and Jordan Weitzman at Parisian Laundry

In Drop, drop slow tears, Janet Werner's fourth solo exhibition at Parisian Laundry, the artist continues her ongoing consideration of representation, subjectivity and desire. In painting fictionalized portraits, often from fashion editorials, the artist disassociates her protagonists twice over. Not only are Werner's subjects removed from feminized ideals, the notion of the ideal itself is fragmented and further revealed as artifice in the act... continue reading

PROJECTESD, Barcelona

Boris Mikhailov’s “Men’s Talk”
GALLERIA GUIDO COSTA, Turin

Whilst the space—which occupies an old print workshop a stone’s throw from Turin’s main railway station—bears distinct traces of its past, felt through its... continue reading

Mean Girls: Keren Cytter and “Vengeance”

by MELISSA GRONLUND

“I’m so excited,” a young woman says, about an advertising meeting that would make your eyes water with boredom. “Don’t worry, that’ll pass,” her older colleague replies. It’s a flat cliché, and he delivers it with a withering smile of self-congratulation. The woman appears put down, but you get the feeling that’s... continue reading
