Art In America

Andrea Joyce Heimer

The title of one of Andrea Joyce Heimer’s paintings is so long that Hometown had to bunch some of the words together on the checklist, deleting the spaces between them.

Siebren Versteeg

What is an artist to do when more art is being produced than ever before, and billions of digital images are sent, consumed, and copied each day? Siebren Versteeg's response has been to partially automate his process. He develops software to create...

“Formal Complaint”

The works of the five artists included in “Formal Complaint” render simple forms—lines, circles, planes—in rugged construction materials. The slender steel rods of Christopher Hanrahan’s “Catalogue” series dangle mid-air, connected at acute angles by...

William Cordova

A maze-like construction of wooden two-by-fours fills the main gallery of “Smoke Signals: Sculpting in Time,” William Cordova’s third solo exhibition at Sikkema Jenkins.  Around the periphery of the structure, one encounters a multitude of artworks...

“The Stand”

Just in time for the inauguration of the forty-fifth president of the United States and the announcement from The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists that the Doomsday Clock had been moved forward from three minutes to midnight to two and a half, P!...

Amie Siegel

Marble is a metamorphic rock—limestone, originally, that has been compressed and refined by geologic forces and has undergone a change of state.

(Un)Controlled Violence: A Chris Burden Documentary

Chris Burden liked to walk around with the barrel of a loaded Uzi tucked between his butt cheeks. He proudly describes this habit in a 1981 performance clip included in Burden, a new biopic on the artist most famous for risky body performances that...

Ken Okiishi

Whether layering references to different eras within a single work or organizing pseudo-retrospective exhibitions, Ken Okiishi often folds the past into the present.

Katharina Grosse

Since the late 1990s, German painter Katharina Grosse has worked almost exclusively with industrial spray guns in lieu of brushes, applying vibrant fields of atomized acrylic to virtually any available surface.

Dawn Clements

Classic still-life offerings like oranges and cherries mingle with modern personal effects such as Carmex lip balm and cancer medications in the works on paper in Dawn Clements’s “Tables and pills and things.” Using Sumi ink, ballpoint pens,...

Sara Cwynar

Despite having been around for centuries, rose gold (the metal alloy) has enjoyed a boost in popularity in recent years. It was Pantone’s color of the year (well, one of two) in 2015, and was offered as an iPhone color option in 2016. The warm pink...

Keltie Ferris

The artist’s subjectivity is literally inseparable from the work in Keltie Ferris’s latest exhibition of body prints, “M\A\R\C\H.” She made the twenty-eight prints in the show by dousing her body, usually clothed but sometimes nude, in oil and...

Soshiro Matsubara

An atmosphere of decadence and sensuality can easily encourage ponderous meditations on death. With “Sleeves of Desire II,” his first solo show in New York, Soshiro Matsubara has gone with a light touch, cultivating an environment informed by...

Gladys Nilsson

Figures big and small inhabit the stunning watercolors Gladys Nilsson made in the late 1980s. It’s unusual to see the medium deployed with the forceful colors and monumental scale of these works, ten of which, all about forty by sixty inches, were on...

Anthony Caro

English artist Anthony Caro left an enormous legacy when he died in 2013 at age eighty-nine. He was celebrated for his sculpture in Britain by the late 1950s, and internationally beginning in the early ’60s.

James Coleman

James Coleman’s exhibition of several new digital videos, projections, and films from the 1970s offered a profound meditation on the act of seeing.

Jane Hammond

Jane Hammond’s “Dazzle Paintings,” on view in her exhibition “Search Light” at Lelong, seem to draw on the history of film and photography as much as they do the history of painting. The works shimmer and appear to move as light catches aspects of the...

“Outlaw Glass”

For a man of culture and taste, choosing a bong can be a tricky task. The range of options can feel limited: water pipes weighted down with tired psychedelia or sterile cylinders emblazoned with bro graphics. The premise of this exhibition of...
