Matias Faldbakken

  Matias Faldbakken Work from his oeuvre. “Faldbakken’s solo show at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen is an example of the paradoxical nature of his institutional criticism. The exhibition presents a selection of pieces from his ‘Container’ series, which range from empty gas cans to abandoned garbage bags.

Brian O’Doherty

Brian O’Doherty Work from P! at Simone Subal Gallery, New York. “Attempting to trace Brian O’Doherty’s artistic concerns through his seven decade career is akin to falling down a rabbit hole. This would undoubtedly please the artist, who delights in the type of misdirection that aims at inspiring deeper thought. His output includes mazelike grids (Vowel […]

Ingo Mittelstaedt

Ingo Mittelstaedt Work from DORT at Kunsthalle Rostock. “The exhibition deals with a double interplay: on the one hand, Mittelstaedt shows his own works from previous years – interrelating these to each other. On the other hand, he curated works from the collection of the Kunsthalle creating a conduit between him and artists like Kate […]

Steve Bishop

Steve Bishop Work from “It’s Easier To Love Your Song Than It Is To Love You“. “I opened my mouth to speak, but a much better point was made. This was as much to my surprise as to everyone else’s. Initially stunned, agreement followed. The first few exclaimed “That’s it!” and then soon others “Yes, […]

Johan Rosenmunthe

Johan Rosenmunthe Work from Enlargements. “Johan Rosenmunthe’s installation utilizes an image taken from the Empire State Building down on the roofs of Manhattan and shows printed crops and zooms into that single image.

Michael Krebber

Aaron Garber-Maikovska

  Aaron Garber-Maikovska Work from “Being One and Then Sum“. ““Chopin’s small forms (nocturne, impromptu, waltz, mazurka, scherzo, ballade, prelude) are rooms, single-occupancy, open to hauntings. Chopin assists my quest to imagine a vocation of pleasure, and to find value in the tiny, the out-of-date, and the wrong.” – Wayne Kostenbaum: Hotel Theory, Brooklyn, 2007 “Words […]

George Henry Longly

George Henry Longly Work from “Hair Care” at Jonathan Viner, London. “Whoever thought that Samson’s power would be in his hair? Not Delilah, or anyone else for that matter. A magnificent Biblical warrior, with superhuman powers, Samson tore a lion limb from limb with his bare hands with the help of his magical hair, but […]

Simon Denny

Simon Denny Work from “Disruptive Berlin”. “The title “Disruptive Berlin” uses a term that is commonly applied in this context to game-changing businesses. A great startup will always aim to “disrupt” an existing industry. An obvious example of this is how Apple “disrupted” the mobile phone industry with the iPhone in 2007. That product completely […]
