“There’s no content being produced, because I’m in the first generation that grew up digital…. We are just transferring all the time: tape, CDs, and now the clouds.”[1] Something radical has been happening for a while in art that has been evading easy classification. The digital fold has facilitated a giant mash-up of layers upon layers of information composed from fragments of fragments. Sound bites, video[…..]

Doug Wheeler at David Zwirner Gallery

A viewer in Wheeler's "rotational horizon work"

Not long after disassembling Yayoi Kusama’s infinity rooms, which had New Yorkers queuing up in polar conditions from the beginning to the end of their six-week run, David Zwirner Gallery now offers another buzzworthy, limited-capacity affair: a “rotational horizon work” by light-and-space artist Doug Wheeler. The wise will consider making a reservation in advance this time. Housed in the commodious ground floor of the gallery’s 20th Street[…..]

Still working in feverish catharsis at the age of 82, Yayoi Kusama is Japan’s most famous living artist. Yet in the United States she has only recently received a slice of the recognition that her expansive body of work and visionary approach deserve. Following a critically acclaimed retrospective at the Whitney last year, Kusama was picked up by David Zwirner in early 2013. For her[…..]

Belgian artist Luc Tuymans is perhaps best known for challenging the post Abstract Expressionism debate about the relevancy of painting by taking on subjects as Belgian colonialism, the Holocaust and the War on Terror. In his tenth exhibition at David Zwirner in New York, The Summer is Over, Tuymans scrutinizes the relevance of capturing reality in painting. Alluding to ghosts of the present and future, the[…..]

Perfect Game: Raymond Pettibon, Hard in the Paint at David Zwirner

Rajon Flocka James in the house! The title of Raymond Pettibon’s current show at David Zwirner, Hard in the Paint, riffs on basketball, art making, the Southern hip-hopper Waka Flocka Flame and maybe even the YouTube parody Baraka Flocka Flame. By signing the gallery wall “Rajon Flocka James,” Pettibon, whose given name is Raymond Ginn and is no stranger to cultivating an artistic persona, is[…..]

Young Lady, This Will Go On Your Permanent Record: Sue Williams, Al-Qaeda is the CIA

Can’t we all just learn to trust Sue Williams? So what if, after all her stylistic shifts, she’s showing a new body of work devoted to 9/11 conspiracy theories? And big deal that these are the exact same theories espoused by President Ahmadinejad of Iran that were publicly denounced by President Obama. For all of the artists who give lip service to taking risks, Williams[…..]
