Shows That Matter: "Another Look at Detroit" at Marlborough Chelsea and Marianne Boesky
18/07/2014
WHAT: “Another Look at Detroit: Parts 1 and 2”WHEN: Through August 8WHERE: Marianne Boesky Gallery and Marlborough Chelsea WHY THIS SHOW MATTERS: The city of Detroit has made headlines for unfortunate reasons and hopeful reasons this past year, its public image bouncing between a post-industrial ghost town and poster child for post-urban living. Todd Levin’s “Another Look at Detroit: Parts 1 and 2,” currently on view at Marianne Boesky Gallery and Marlborough Chelsea, doesn’t align itself with either — or any — preconceived notion of what Detroit was, is, or should be. In fact, Levin says, in a lengthy curatorial statement about the show, “This is not an exhibition about geopolitics or macroeconomics or global finance. This is not an exhibition glorifying the misguided aesthetics of destruction porn.” He adds, “It is neither a feel-good exhibition trying to accentuate the positive, nor an attempt at organizing a proper historical overview of how a city was birthed and decayed.” Levin, a Detroit native and the director of the Levin Art Group, has pulled together some of the biggest names in art, and some not so widely known, in a personal collage of the city’s artistic roots, burgeoning present, and unknown future. Featured artwork includes a painting by Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, a sculpture by Nick Cave, ephemeral artifacts such as a 1959 Plymouth automobile advertisement, decorative work like Michael McCoy’s “Door Chair Prototype,” as well as pieces by Destroy All Monsters, Charles and Ray Eames, Bill Rauhauser, Dana Schutz, and more. “This exhibition is a sprawling tone poem evoking the city where I was born and raised, a place I still feel deeply in my identity. A soliloquy by someone returning home, but not to the place they once knew,” explains Levin. Considering the fact that just yesterday, the Detroit Institute of Arts made headlines with news that some of the city’s biggest corporations will pledge $26.8 million to help save its historic collection, there couldn’t be a better time to pause and examine the city’s creative lineage.

5 Must-See Gallery Shows: "Displayed," "Purple States," and More
18/07/2014
“Displayed,” at Anton Kern Gallery through August 22 This exhibition spotlights work that incorporates “the languages of architecture, the museum, interior design, retail, and advertising.” It’s a productive conceit in the hands of curator Matthew Higgs, who includes photography that nods to commercial tableaux (Roe Etheridge’s absurdist image of fish with Chanel rings; Annette Kelm and Marina Pinsky’s brightly colored still life compositions) as well as sculpture and painting that relate to display: one of David Korty’s “shelf” paintings; a Nancy Shaver piece, “Bric a Brac,” that’s simply an orderly arrangement of vintage- and thrift-shop objects; and a Diane Simpson sculpture, “Window 2, Window dressing:Bib-dots,” an assemblage of gatorboard, Masonite, and other hardware-store materials that’s designed to sell nothing other than itself.      “Purple States,” at Andrew Edlin through August 16 A joyously crowded exhibition aiming to mingle contemporary artists with so-called “outsiders,” this show also includes pieces that aren’t strictly art at all — like a 19th-century Japanese futon cover hung next to (and partially under) a dyed-textile painting by Cheryl Donegan. Other highlights: One of Brian “Hey I'm In Every Group Show This Summer” Belott’s sock-and-glass works; a huge Chuck Webster painting; two of Gina Beavers’s sculptural canvases, paired next to mid-’50s photographs of female dolls by Morton Barlett; and a beautiful little Forrest Bess mountain landscape from 1968. Installation view of "Purple States" at Andrew Edlin “Chatbots, tongues, denial, & various other abstractions,” at Bortolami through August 22 The chatbots mentioned are three conversational drones programmed by Ian Cheng to talk amongst themselves, endlessly, for a multimedia piece in the back of the gallery. As for the tongues, those are included in Carissa Rodriguez’s large-scale lingual photographs — uncomfortable close-ups of the organ in question, covered in marker annotations pointing out imperfections and problem areas in each fleshy surface. Also included: A multi-channel video work by Melanie Gilligan, with accompanying lenticular prints, and four terrific sculptures by Anicka Yi, who takes common materials — glycerin soap, fish oil vitamins, dog food — and imbues them with a kind of slapstick Beuysian, shamanic quality. The quartet of works, brilliantly illuminated within individual light boxes and bearing titles like “The Easy Way To Quit New York” and “The Question Is Why Would You Recognize My Face Tomorrow,” are worth the trip alone. Anicka Yi's The Question Is Would You Recognize My Face Tomorrow (2013) Franklin Evans, “paintingassupermodel,” at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohi through August 1 Understated and subtle are two adjectives that will never be applied to Evans’s work. For his debut at this gallery, he cannibalizes the entire space — including the floors — creating a massively dense, referential installation that’s terrifically entertaining to get lost within. Paint-spattered tape, computer print-outs, enlarged-and-stretched digital photos, and architectural schematics cover the walls; Plexi vitrines hold photographs and tiny sculptural odds-and-ends. Installation view of "paintingassupermodel" at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohi  “That’s The Neighbor, Always Dressing These Boulders In The Yard,” at Suzanne Geiss Company through August 2 Curated by painter Torey Thornton — who has his own high-profile solo opening at L.A.’s OHWOW in September — this group exhibition includes omnipresent 2014 summer-show stars Ted Gahl and Brian Belott. The latter contributes a number of scrappy, colorful collage works; Gahl has a small painting of flowers and a larger canvas that incorporates an enlarged image of a house painter that the artist has scavenged from his own childhood drawings. Eric Mack’s “Partition” — a wall of messily painted pegboards — divides the gallery space in two, while his sculpture with moving blankets and other media, “Finding Comfort in Easy Distinction,” slumps against the far wall like a dejected drunk.     Installation view of "That’s The Neighbor, Always Dressing These Boulders In The Yard" To see highlights from these five must-see shows, click here. 5 Must-See Gallery Shows: "Displayed," "Purple States," and MoreSelect Photo Gallery: Slideshow: 5 Must-See Gallery Shows: "Displayed," "Purple States," and MorePublished: July 18, 2014 Read full article here
