ASIAN ART MUSEUM, San Francisco

View of Haroon Mirza’s “The Night Journey” at Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, 2018.
by

Monica Westin

The source material for The Night Journey (2018), Haroon Mirza’s sound-based multimedia installation, is a miniature painting from the collection of the Asian Art Museum that is conspicuously absent from the final exhibition. The original painting, The night journey of the prophet Muhammad on the heavenly creature Buraq, created in... continue reading

The summer of 2018 was grifter season. Starting sometime in May, a strange coterie of glittering personages came coasting along: hustling socialites, scurrilous aventuriers, faux–Saudi princes. The hoax has always had a special place in American mythology, from a newspaper editor convincing his readers there were unicorns on the moon... continue reading
Paris Roundup

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Paris

Lang & Baumann, view of Street Painting #10, 2018, between the Grand Palais and Petit Palais, FIAC, Paris, 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

View of “Heavenly Beings: Neither Human nor Animal” at Moderna galerija, Ljubljana, 2018.
by

Alenka Gregoric

“[A]re humans able to resist together with plants and animals?”(1) With this question, Zdenka Badovinac and Bojana Piškur invite viewers to consider the possibility that all living things can coexist—and co-resist.
