The Jogging

The Jogging Work from “Soon” at Still House, New York. “For most, the trip to the Still House is a lengthy one, poetically punctuated at the end of Brooklyn’s Van Brunt Street by a view of the Statue of Liberty standing in the Hudson River. Upon congratulating yourself for completing an hour-long MTA commute, one […]

Adam McEwen

Adam McEwen Work from his oeuvre. “Adam McEwen wrote actual obituaries for The Daily Telegraph in London before he ever turned the genre into artwork, writing obituaries for still living and breathing celebrities like Kate Moss and Jeff Koons (he’s done nine in total and has three more on the way). Seeing news in an […]

Zak Kitnick

Zak Kitnick Work from his exhibition at Clifton Benevento, New York “Once he started using store-bought industrial shelving to create highly ordered Neo-Minimalist sculptures, Zak Kitnick came into his own as an artist. In his latest show, he takes these materials and his compulsion to organize to ingenious new levels, by basing his works on […]

A.K. Burns

A.K. Burns Work from “Touch Parade”. “Burns brings intelligence and humor to her subjects. In a 2011 interview with Rhizome director Lauren Cornell, she asks pithy questions like, “Why are things, shaped the way they are, continually inserted in to our vaginal consumerist reality?” and asserts that “the personal is not only political, but sexual.” […]

Nick van Woert

Nick van Woert Work from his oeuvre. “The post-apocalyptic terrain van Woert covers in “No Man’s Land” is expansive, and initially seems to lack a center. Each piece, however, addresses humans’ conflicting capacities for creation and destruction. The exhibition includes an 8-foot-tall set of silverware, with which van Woert intends visitors to “ingest” his works, […]

Lyndsy Welgos

Lyndsy Welgos Work from her oeuvre. “Rawson Projects: Firstly, I think you have always attempted to address the identity of photography as an art medium in your work. In your first exhibition with Rawson Projects, while still employing photographic processes, you stripped the works of specific references to time and place. Can you describe how […]

Amy Brener

Amy Brener Work from her oeuvre. “Amy Brener has developed a method of layering resin, glass and fresnel lens to create light sensitive sculptures. Her recent works resemble artifacts of an imagined future. Some surfaces suggest touch-screen platforms and energy cells. Others are left to chance: to crystallize, crack under pressure and weather with time. […]

Josh Kline

Josh Kline Work from his oeuvre. “Typically, when an art work is referred to as being ‘of the moment’, it’s meant derisively. Our romantic ideals require art to transcend culture and time, to live on eternally rather than in a fashionable present. ‘Dignity and Self Respect’, Josh Kline’s first solo exhibition in New York, unapologetically […]

Trudy Benson

Trudy Benson Work from her oeuvre. “When a viewer engages with one of Trudy Benson’s paintings, it is as if a stream of digital consciousness has purged itself onto the canvas. Every work contains waves of riotous strokes and spray marks emphasizing an influx of information as disjointed abstract thought. Benson explores the world of digital […]

Bernadette Corporation

Bernadette Corporation Work from 2000 Wasted Years at Artists Space, New York. “2000 Wasted Years is the first retrospective by Bernadette Corporation. The exhibition recasts the works authored by the group since their inception in the early ‘90s. The origins of Bernadette Corporation lie in the organization of parties in downtown New York, their mock incorporation […]
