Art In America

“Displayed”

at Anton Kern Gallery,
532 W. 20th St.

Artists like Haim Steinbach, Rachel Harrison, Carol Bove and Isa Genzken have long been concerned with the ways that art is displayed, and have incorporated the mechanisms of display into their works, drawing on sources like store shelving units and tables. White Columns director Matthew Higgs has curated an engaging group show including Harrison along with B. Wurtz, Nancy Shaver, Chris Martin, Carissa Rodriguez and others who take up these issues. Martin's paintings hang on the gallery's facade, turning the building itself into a display case; Shaver's shelves contain bric-a-brac from her store upstate, in Hudson. You can buy antique bingo cards for a dollar.
