Loving Memory – Mike Kelley

For the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam to choose Mike Kelley for their reopening exhibition was, to say the least, symbolic. The Stedelijk opened its newly refurbished and expanded premises in September last year, after years (and years) of highly controversial, heavily debated and stupendously overpriced refurbishments. The enormous white bath tub that is now hovering in front of the institution’s old facade, (brainchild of Benthem[.....]

Through Windows, Through Walls: Driss Ouadahi at Hosfelt Gallery

Painting has long offered codes for interpreting landscape, and from it a perspective on our place in the world. Claude Monet’s series of haystacks, bridges and the Rouen cathedral give us landscape as a clock, an unfolding of the hours of the day and time spent looking, comparing, recording and looking again.

Jean-Pascal Flavien

Arguably, the most meaningful aspects of our lives are the relationships and exchanges that come from them. In casa para 2, Berlin-based artist Jean-Pascal Flavien has created an architectural space to induce an experimental dialogue between two people, Person A and Person B.

James Welling: Glass House

Philip Johnson’s Glass House has often served as the subject and inspiration for other artist’s work. Photographer, James Welling, has chosen to document the house for a new series of images, simply titled Glass House. The exhibition, which is currently on view at David Zwirner Gallery on West 19th St. in New York City, has developed over a three year period (2006-2009). Welling’s images capture[.....]
