  3. Travis Jeppesen on Joe Bradley

    "No one does shit like Bradley. Probably no one else is brave enough."

  4. William Cordova on Juana Valdes in “Relational Undercurrents” at MOLAA

    "Valdes's installation makes us inspect mass-produced objects as part of the neocolonial narrative."

  5. Stephanie Smith on Mark Dion

    "We need Mark's artful mix of science, nerdiness, creative obsession, wonder, and humor right now."

  6. Antonia Carver on Hassan Sharif

    "Attention from the market and institutions has created a somewhat mythic persona that appears contradictory for a practitioner who was resolutely collaborative, down-to-earth."

  7. Yuko Hasegawa on Taus Makhacheva

    "Taus Makhacheva has a very sophisticated, subtle way of opening up the history of everyday life."

  8. Jay Sanders on Allen Ruppersberg

    "He explores how you can use popular forms but have a set of avant-garde concerns operating in the work." 

  9. Nancy Princenthal on David Wojnarowicz

    "Wojnarowicz was so savagely honest about where he came from and making it part of his work, which is full of passion and rage but still has this amazingly lyrical touch."
