« “Ah! Only a madman would believe that I am not you!” wrote Victor Hugo in the preface to his Contemplations in 1856. A century and a half later, Markus Hansen's photographic series Other People's Feelings Are Also My Own invites us to consider this statement once again, and to give it our full attention. »

Reviews


Jennifer West at the Seattle Art Museum — Artforum

This review of Film Is Dead . . . by Jennifer West at the Seattle Art Museum was initially published on www.artforum.com

 

« One can circulate around Jennifer West’s latest installation, Film Is Dead . . ., 2016, but it is most potent when you are standing in front of it. A giant static curtain of 70-mm filmstrips comes down to the floor and spreads toward three seamlessly joined horizontal monitors positioned on the ground, creating a peculiar silent landscape. »

Noah Davis and Kahlil Joseph at the Frye Art Museum — Artforum

This review of Young Blood: Noah David, Kahlil Joseph, The Underground Museum the Frye Museum was initially published on Artforum.com ­ 05/06/2016

 

« Filiation and legacy both symbolic and tangible are pervasive in “Young Blood,” a title derived from a greeting Kahlil Joseph used for his younger brother, Noah Davis. The exhibition of the two siblings’ work is a rigorous yet tender examination of their individual practices. Not a retrospective, it is rather an intimate tribute, curated by their longtime friend and Seattle­based artist Maikoiyo Alley­Barnes, that reveals the interconnectivity and shared experiences of the two artists. »

Franz Erhard Walther at the Henry Art Gallery — Artforum

This review of Franz Erhard Walther: The Body Draws at the Henry Art Gallery was initially published on Artforum.com - 01/02/2016

 

« With its 300 works, “Franz Erhard Walther: The Body Draws”—the first American survey of the pioneering German artist—offers an interesting reassessment of his work. As the title suggests, the show is intended to consider the extent to which drawing—broadly speaking —has always been at the core of the artist’s practice. Focusing on works on paper, the extensive exhibition foregrounds the importance of the line, in a body of work at the crossroads of painting, sculpture, architecture, the conceptual, and the performative. »

Eugène Leroy’s Nudes at Michael Werner gallery — Huffington Post

This review of Eugène Leroy, Nudes at Michael Werner gallery in New York was initially published in the Huffington Post ­ 12/17/2012

 

« For now almost thirty years, Michael Werner has continuously shown the work of French painter Eugène Leroy. In a new exhibition in New York, the gallery delights us with an outstanding selection of the artist's luminous nudes, one of his favorite subjects. Most were executed in the late eighties and nineties, an important time for the artist: Michael Werner began representing him in 1983 and he met Marina Bourdoncle in 1986, the artist with whom he shared his life until his death, in 2000. »

Resembling by Touching: Daniel Turner's Beautiful Ring at The Journal Gallery — Huffington Post

This review of Daniel Turner, Mariana at The Journal gallery in Brooklyn was initially published in the Huffington Post ­ 11/29/2011

 

« Mariana is the name of the deepest trench of earth's oceans, and it is also the title of Daniel Turner's current exhibition at The Journal Gallery in Brooklyn. Although the artist doesn't necessarily claim an affiliation between the work and the trench, it is mentioned furtively. Patiently, the artist has stroked the gallery walls with steel wool, leaving subtle grey marks on them. »

« With only five strong and emblematic pieces ­­ completed within the past ten years ­­ shown in three different rooms, she manages to create an extremely contrasted sounding and pictorial environment, quite disturbing and unpleasant at first. »

Encounter at the Beginning of a World: Helen Beckman's Paintings — Huffington Post

This review of Helen Beckman, Tell it Slant at Newman Popiashvili gallery in New York was initially published in the Huffington Post ­ 06/22/2011

 

« In Helen Beckman's paintings, the subject catches you by surprise and never really leaves you: A bird, a horse, a woman... These fundamental themes, recurring in her work, are not always visible at the first look. You encounter them often swimming in light. But although they can be seen as each painting's cornerstone, you quickly realize that other battles are going on here : There is much more than the pastoral here. »

Street Art Revisited : Drawings in Motion in New York City — Huffington Post

This review of Drawings in Motion organized curated by Rachel Liebowitz and Joanna Kleinberg at The Drawing Center in New York was initially published in the Huffington Post ­ 05/25/2011

 

« Walking by 200 Lafayette Street (between Broome and Kenmare) in Soho, you come across a beautiful ­­ though partly hidden by a scaffolding ­­ projection of videos in the window of an abandoned store, a nice surprise of a different kind of street art in a neighborhood where art used to be so prominent. »

Worth Seeing Side Fair During Armory Week in New York: Salon Zürcher — Huffington Post

This review of Salon Zürcher at Zürcher Studio in New York was initially published in the Huffington Post ­ 03/01/2011

 

« Attending the opening of Salon Zürcher last night on Bleecker street was a great way to start a week that will be hopefully exciting and for sure insane. The ambiance was warm and low key in this little art fair initiated and hosted by Zurcher Studio in its own space: It is such a brilliant idea to gather seven galleries from the Lower East side and Brooklyn (Audio Visual Arts (AVA), Feature Inc., The Journal Gallery, The Proposition, Parker's Box, Stephan Stoyanov Gallery, Zürcher Studio) in one. »

« AC: his magazine feels like a very personal dream becoming true.

A A­C: It most definitely is. A dream I could never have articulated on my own. With the help of the editorial team, and the artists' works, the magazine has come to life in a way I could have never anticipated. In its original materialization, it was an 18 page 'zine... now at 200­plus pages, it is much bigger, more beautiful and inspiring than I could have ever dreamt. »
