Art In America

Rico Gatson

For almost two decades, Rico Gatson has been making strong work that stands at the intersection of formalist abstraction and social commentary. 

Walter Robinson

Throughout his storied career, Walter Robinson has been classified under different categories yet contained by none of them.

Norbert Prangenberg

With more than 30 exhibitions to his credit, including four museum retrospectives, Norbert Prangenberg, who died at age 62 in June 2012, was seldom exhibited outside of his native Germany and Europe

Feature Inc.’s Hudson, 1950-2014

Hudson, mentor to fellow gallerists and a beloved champion of the artists he showed, died suddenly on Feb. 9 of natural causes in his apartment, at age 63.

Nathaniel Robinson

In past years, Nathaniel Robinson created stand-alone sculptural objects such as an untitled polyurethane-resin version of a Styrofoam cup (2009) that was a dead ringer for the original, down to the teeth marks bitten into its rim.

Xylor Jane

Xylor Jane gets up absurdly early each morning to begin painting, all the better (she claims) to access the unconscious forces that tend to be accessible at that hour. (The title of her show—her third at Canada—was, in fact, "3:07 a.m.") That said,...

The Fine Print: Q+A With Martin Wilner

I first saw Martin Wilner's work in 2005 at Pierogi Gallery in Brooklyn. I was particularly struck by a notebook-sized drawing in which Wilner documented his impressions of a trip he and his Holocaust-survivor parents made to Poland, trying to find...

Elana Herzog

For the past 10 years, Elana Herzog has been creating impressive interventions out of ripped and otherwise deconstructed domestic fabrics that seem to grow seamlessly out of a room's corners, cling to a supporting column or hang (via thousands of...

Olivier Mosset

Most of the reviews you’re likely to read about Olivier Mosset, conceptual/minimalist/anti-art painter, begin with a history lesson—a well-padded rundown of this prolific 66-year-old artist’s career, including his early days working as an assistant...

Suzanne Caporael

Road trips are never really how you remember them. So many interstitial moments-of abject boredom, blurred roadbeds and pit stops-are lost to memory or replaced by the seemingly more important aggregate moments frozen in photographs. If what you're...

Don Dudley

This exhibition marked Don Dudley's first solo outing since 1985, and an impressive array of catalogues from the (now 80-year-old) artist's past exhibitions was fanned out on the gallery's desk. They largely documented group shows, from 1972 to...

Elad Lassry

If Israeli-born, L.A.-based photographer Elad Lassry hadn't come along at this particular moment in photography's history, theorists would probably have had to invent him. A self-conscious cross-trainer of no small talent, Lassry here showed 24...

Paul P

In Paul P.'s recent exhibition "Sherbert in Damascus," titled for a short story by Daniel Snow, the paintings seemed to have been not so much hung on the wall as purposefully enlisted in a subtly suggestive mise-en-scène. The 25 diminutive works...

Cecilia Dougherty

Can people ever truly distinguish what's going on in the real world from the narrative playing out in their heads? Can they ever say with certainty that the mundane isn't meaningful? Such questions, rich with poetic nuance and impossible to answer,...

Tunneling

The group show “Tunneling,” on view at this Bushwick venue, offered more groundbreaking media, mind-expanding imagery and diverse sensory experiences (performance included) than its claustrophobic-sounding title might imply.

Gerhard Richter

This massive five-room show by Gerhard Richter delivered all the gravitas of a museum survey, even as it afforded viewers intimate moments of pure visual delight—an opportunity, in effect, to see Richter’s abstractions afresh. Almost all of the 47...

Su-Mei Tse

Luxembourg-born artist Su-Mei Tse, a quiet but potent conceptualist, captured the art world’s attention when her pavilion won the Golden Lion at the 2003 Venice Biennale (she represented her native country); she has since mounted significant solo...

Rochelle Feinstein

Rochelle Feinstein isn't one to wait around for the academy to get a bead on her. With not a single major museum exhibition, nor anything resembling a substantive catalogue to document her prolific output and significant influence on young...
