Exhibition view of Alexandre Estrela + João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva's "Lua Cão" at Kunstverein München, 2018.
by

Patrick J. Reed

Watching João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva’s Cowfish (2001) is harrowing. The poor fool struggles on a plate and then pukes a little water before going still. Any viewer would assume the film’s subject—a cowfish—dies, but in the end its survival remains unclear. Death is withheld by a flicker and... continue reading

Eager to see the art in Laure Prouvost’s first solo exhibition at Lisson Gallery in New York, visitors might breeze through its central installation: Uncle’s Travel Agency Franchise, Deep Travel Ink. NYC (2016–18). Situated at the entrance to the gallery, it looks like an unkempt and outdated version of an... continue reading

Art Basel in Hong Kong 2018.
by

“Women Look at Women”

RICHARD SALTOUN GALLERY, London

View of "Women Look At Women," Richard Saltoun Gallery, London, 2018.
by

Lucy Reynolds

I almost walk past the entrance to “Women Look at Women,” the inaugural exhibition at Richard Saltoun’s new space on London’s New Bond Street, delayed and disorientated by the glossy rows of designer shops and galleries that surround it.
