REVIEWS

Boris Mikhailov’s “Men’s Talk”
GALLERIA GUIDO COSTA, Turin
Boris Mikhailov, from the series "Men's talk," 2011.

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
