Art In America

Rosemary Mayer

This exhibition of works that Rosemary Mayer made between 1969 and 1973—a period during which she and nineteen other women artists founded the cooperative A.I.R. Gallery, and a broadly fertile time for the New York art scene of which she was a...

Seed Money: Fran Ilich at Museo de Los Sures

A blend of utopian aspiration and excavated indigenous tradition animates Fran Ilich's timely project, Aridoamérica Winter Plan, an intriguing social experiment that takes the form of a free coffee shop.

Sascha Braunig

The wireframe bodies in Sascha Braunig’s latest paintings can be as sinuous as string figures or as rigid as metal grills. They inhabit illusionistic spaces defined by the deceptively simple gradients or environments warped by bold, Op-Art patterns....

Robert Frank

In 2009, Kazuhiko Motomura (a Japanese tax officer and longtime Robert Frank fan) published a portfolio of the complete contact sheets from Frank’s legendary photography book, The Americans, first published in France in 1958 and in the US a year...

Yuji Agematsu

For thirty years, Yuji Agematsu has been collecting garbage from the streets of New York and preserving his haul in museological displays. He bypasses the bulky stuff of Combines; each thing he takes could fit in a pocket. The subject matter could be...

Ways of Listening: Arthur Russell at BAM

While Arthur Russell managed to release only several proper albums before his death from AIDS-related complications in 1992 at age forty, an ongoing effort to collect and release material from his genre-spanning oeuvre has created a sense of sustained...

Diane Simpson

Though Diane Simpson (b. 1935) has been exhibiting steadily in and around her native Chicago since the late 1970s, until recently her work was largely unseen outside of the Midwest.

Duane Linklater

In this exhibition, which originated at Mercer Union in Toronto, Duane Linklater offered an assortment of artworks by himself and by family members that raised urgent questions about how institutions of power systematically grant—or deny—access to...

Sarah Charlesworth

Sarah Charlesworth (1947–2013) treated photography as a weird science, producing perfectly toned, spectral images. "Natural Magic" (1992–93) is a series of bright, crisply colored Cibachrome prints of isolated objects that appear on stark black fields...

Harvey Quaytman

Harvey Quaytman's paintings of the 1980s and '90s, a tight selection of which are on view here, bring the visual rhetoric associated with transcendent abstraction down to earth. Quaytman (1937–2002) is known for works from the 1960s and '70s that...

Alice Neel

Alice Neel, who died in 1984, is famed for her portraits, which have the pathos of El Greco and the intimacy of George Luks, with the quirk and ambition of Lucian Freud. Looking at her work, you can tell that Neel relished paint, as well as the time...

Get Free: Music and Gender at MoMA PS1

The three afternoons of performances for “Between 0 and 1” attempted to convey the energy and sound of those spaces, featuring appearances by icons like Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Terre Thaemlitz (DJ Sprinkles) and younger stars, like Elysia...

Benny Andrews

A man stands with his legs spread wide. We see him from above so that one of his legs, foreshortened and appearing to jut out from his crotch, looks as phallic as can be.

“The Artist’s Museum”

A curator curating artists who curate other artists. It doesn’t get any more meta than that. The artworks collected in “The Artist’s Museum,” a nesting box of an exhibition organized by Dan Byers, are, in essence, collections...

Michelle Grabner

The last time Michelle Grabner had an exhibition at James Cohan Gallery, shortly after she co-curated the 2014 Whitney Biennial, Ken Johnson panned it in the New York Times.

Sam Pulitzer and Peter Wächtler

Sam Pulitzer and Peter Wächtler’s recent exhibition at House of Gaga/Reena Spaulings Fine Art was a collaborative venture for both the artists, who are friends, and the galleries, which are based in Mexico City and New York, respectively, and have...

How She Survived: Jamie Crewe’s Playlist

Glasgow-based artist Jamie Crewe is the subject of the "First Look" column in our March issue. As Philomena Epps writes, Crewe's works "convey a fluid sense of cultural ancestry-one at odds with the established canon, which is heavily skewed toward...

Leonhard Hurzlmeier

The German painter Leonhard Hurzlmeier has spent most of his young career depicting women. “All New Women,” his current show at Rachel Uffner (his first in the States) follows “New Women” and “Latest Women,” both at Munich galleries. These colorful,...
