View of Edgardo Antonio Vigo’s “Un Arte A Realizar [An Art In Becoming],” Richard Saltoun Gallery, London, 2017.
by

Gustavo Grandal Montero

“Un Arte A Realizar [An Art In Becoming]” is the first solo exhibition in the UK dedicated to the Argentinian artist Edgardo Antonio Vigo, who died in 1997. Relatively unknown in Europe, his name has until recently been associated with mail art, that most underrated of avant-garde movements. The exhibition... continue reading

View of Maria Taniguchi, Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo, 2017.

Cameron Allan McKean

Earth-stuff goes through myriad transformations on its path to usefulness in our world. Soil, stone, water, oil, plants, animals, and the rest all pass through processes of cleaning, smoothing, separating, reconstituting. And at the end of that violence is an exquisite, terrifying flatness: one that expresses itself through identical buildings,... continue reading
View of Christina Mackie's "Drift Rust," Herald Street, London, 2017.

Patrick Langley

Christina Mackie’s installations have an instinctive and provisional feel about them.

View of Jörg Immendorff’s “LIDL Works and Performances from the 60s,” Michael Werner Gallery, New York, 2017.
by

Andrew Stefan Weiner

At the time of his death in 2007, Jörg Immendorff was celebrated in his homeland as one of postwar Germany’s most famous artists, and also as one of its most infamous.
