Art In America

Michael Wang

at Foxy Production,

623 W 27th St  New York, NY 10001

For his second show at Foxy Production, Michael Wang has distilled a sprawling intellectual adventure into a series of modest objects. Wang demands quite a lot from the works on display in the gallery: two series of small, seemingly abstract drawings and an elegant pink gown. The works' fragmented, incomplete appearance is deliberate: each piece is a point in a constellation of historical events that links Hermann Göring's Nazi-era bison-breeding program, Isamu Noguchi's failed monument for Hiroshima, and Jacqueline Kennedy's role in bringing the Mona Lisa to the United States.
