What is art’s role when geopolitical tensions run high and technology makes it difficult—perhaps even irresponsible—to tune out of the perpetual state-of-emergency news cycle that promises, and often delivers, news that impacts the daily lives of people near and far. That’s a reasonable question on many curators’ minds when they... continue reading
Trisha Baga, Mollusca & The Pelvic Floor, 2018.
by

Leo Goldsmith

Trisha Baga’s third exhibition at Greene Naftali is also her most ambitious. “Mollusca & The Pelvic Floor,” like its cosmically hilarious and dizzyingly psychedelic predecessors, features a dazzling and untidy collection of found, handmade, and moving-image works: from doctored lenticular posters of human anatomy to idiosyncratic ceramic representations of everyday... continue reading

KUNSTVEREIN BRAUNSCHWEIG, Braunschweig

Camille Blatrix, Untitled, 2018.
by

Patrick J. Reed

Please consider this a compliment: Camille Blatrix’s solo exhibition at the Kunstverein Braunschweig is so spartan it teeters on the razor’s edge of not enough.

Steirischer Herbst 2018

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Graz

Ekaterina Degot at the opening of Steirischer Herbst, Graz, 2018.

Adam Kleinman

Although I forgot who was fighting, I clearly recall a statement made by former heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman while providing ringside commentary. After weathering a devastating hit, a seemingly unfazed boxer smiled back at his opponent as if to show he could take it; Foreman, on the other hand,... continue reading
