Inside the Art Bars

Bars have been as essential to the New York art world as its galleries and museums. Eleven artists reflect on the downtown institutions where creative inspiration could flow as freely as the drinks.  

Heide Hatry

A rose is a rose is a rose, but not always. In this show of large color photographs by the German-born artist Heide Hatry, the trompe l'oeil floral constructions are composed of animal innards, genitals and other nasty bits-all artfully transformed in...

The Lookout: A Weekly Guide to Shows You Won't Want to Miss

Codes of Conduct

In 1968, Argentine artist Marta Minujín found her nose pressed against the window of the intimidating social web of New York City (and its even more Byzantine art world). But rather than become a mere spectator, Minujín used her outsider status to her...

Tania Bruguera

The cuban artist's topical performances and installations lost some specificity - but found broader resonance - in a recent retrospective that included daily live events. 

Richard Maxwell

The use of video in theater and dance performances has a storied history, from the early work of Robert Whitman, Trisha Brown, Deborah Hay, Carolee Schneemann and a host of others to the more technologically sophisticated later projects of Merce...

Ida Applebroog

Anyone who still thinks female sexuality is defined by lack, take note: three substantial exhibitions running concurrently in New York recently presented vaginas in rather stunning abundance. Two of the exhibitions were wonderfully various group...

Janine Antoni

Antoni talks about her current work, which includes a gargoyle adapted for "personal" use and a spiderweb recast as wearable dollhouse.
