Carl Ostendarp

Carl Ostendarp Work from “1989-2007″ at Elizabeth Dee, New York. “In subversive institutional interventions, Carl Ostendarp transforms two of the Johnson Museum’s galleries with offbeat art selections, intensely pigmented murals, and pulsing music. Following curatorial incursions like Andy Warhol’s “Raid the Icebox,” 1970, and Fred Wilson’s Mining the Museum, 1992, Ostendarp’s installations incorporate—and thereby recontextualize—works from […]

Justin Lieberman

Justin Lieberman Work from “Squeezed Reliefs” at Martos Gallery, New York “Here’s what the frenetic pace of a price-tagged art world has wrought: Justin Lieberman’s “Squeezed Reliefs” recycle unsold­ sculptures tacked onto canvases, topped off with paint that recounts the artist’s financial ruin. The artist makes clear in a statement that the black-and-white chicness of […]

Olve Sande

Olve Sande Work from Suites at Galerie Antoine Levi. “Suites, per definition, are to be considered as consequetive units or pieces following a specific order and harmony. Like multiple rooms opening up, following each other continuously, or windows allowing a view to emerge through a fixed space, suites both suggest and direct progression. Olve Sande’s […]

BIEN OU BIEN ?

BIEN OU BIEN ? at MonCHÉRI Featuring: Gabriele Beveridge, Aline Bouvy, Hamishi Farah, Mike Goldby, Manor Grunewald, Lucy Kim, Torben Ribe, Amanda Ross-Ho, Dominic Samsworth, and Michael Staniak. “Freedom – as defined by Max Stirner – to be truly such, cannot derive neither depend on a third-party concession. It should be solely the outcome of […]

Laura Owens

   Laura Owens Work from her oeuvre. “Laura Owens has worked in a dizzying array of styles—from crisp abstraction to moody landscape—delving enthusiastically into genre painting, vernacular pattern, and a kind of japonisme that is all the more potent in an age when decoration is often met with critical suspicion. Untitled shows Owens in full possession of […]

Jaya Howey

Jaya Howey Work from “Note to Self” at Bureau, New York. “Bureau is pleased to announce Note to Self, Jaya Howey’s first exhibition with the gallery. Howey’s exhibition includes three new bodies of work, two modes of painting: narratives and respites, and the ceramic frame works. Howey’snarratives establish an emotionally fraught thread through the use of a rudimentary pictographic code. The respitesfeature […]

Avery K. Singer

  Avery K. Singer Work from her oeuvre. “If one views the past, be it in glances through old magazines, in movies of lost eras, or in visions of what was to come, the stream of history is laid bare, flowing forward to the present day. If one stops at a certain point and ignores […]

Der Grund ist nicht Licht, sondern Nacht

Der Grund ist nicht Licht, sondern Nacht at Christian Ehretraut. “
Through their surfaces, structures and the ways in which they are assembled, the works in the exhibition move in direct relation to the surrounding exhibition space and installed artwork. In their use of optical irritations, often intense color and repetitive rhythm, they oscillate between playful […]

Emanuel Röhss

Emanuel Röhss Work from Knut Ljungfelt at Project Native Informant. “A mellow lit high end Swedish restaurant interior, February, lunchtime. Where the fuck is Beatrice?, Knut thought, starring at his Bovet Fleurier 46 watch through half closed eyes as he uncomfortably sat waiting at a corner table in restaurant KB downing a vodka tonic. Waiter, […]

Strauss Bourque-LaFrance

Strauss Bourque-LaFrance Work from his oeuvre. “Strauss Bourque-LaFrance’s work is often driven by formal decisions, though each gesture is latent with subversive qualities. This mechanism predates his 2010 MFA thesis show, “Rotten Sun,” but these moves can be seen here—perhaps most explicitly. Thesis exhibitions that year at Tower Projects, a factory warehouse-turned-gallery in the Northern […]
