Stephen Truax: How Will I Know

Stephen Truax: How Will I Know

67 Ludlow Street - New York
Curated by Anne Luther
By Terence Trouillot
Stephen Truax’s “How Will I Know” is personal, hermetic, beautiful, erotic, touching and satisfyingly strange. The small exhibition, consisting simply of one recorded sound piece, two large photographs and six drawings, packs a dramatic punch and leaves the viewer in a constant state [...]

Michiko Itatani: Starry Night Encounter

Michiko Itatani: Starry Night Encounter

Linda Warren Projects - Chicago
By B. David Zarley

There is, above all else with Starry Night Encounter-with Michiko Itatani-a sense of continuity, an expansive, ever running and ever there cosmology, connected and demarcated with visible filaments born of a syringe and a steady but free hand, strung through by frozen ligaments, a complete concept [...]

Galería Cidreña - Cidra, Puerto Rico

By Abdías Méndez Robles

“Art is a reflection of the world. If the world is horrible, the reflection in the mirror is horrible.”
Paul Verhoeven (1938)

Jacob Hashimoto: The First Known Map of the Moon

Diogenes of Sinope (c. 412 - 323 B.C.) was fabled to have carried around a lantern in daylight. When questioned as to this practice, he replied he was looking for “an (honest) man.” Canadian born, American abstractionist, Agnes Martin (1992 [...]



Fritzia Irízar: Golden Green - Greening Gold

Fritzia Irízar: Golden Green - Greening Gold

Arredondo \ Arozarena - Mexico City
By Othiana Roffiel
In her solo exhibition at Arredondo \ Arozarena, Mexican artist Fritzia Irízar creates a transnational corporation amidst the gallery. The work, through engaging mischievousness, spotlights something of the ethical controversies that lurk beneath the art market. Under the name “Golden Green - Greening Gold,” this fictitious [...]



MouthWater

MouthWater

National YoungArts Foundation - Miami
Curated by Robert Chambers
By Heike Dempster
Envisioned as a “feast of aesthetics in the visual arts” by curator Robert Chambers, the exhibition “MouthWater” metaphorically stands for and conceptually examines works of art as an outcome of the hunger, drive and determination it takes to create new work as an artist. [...]

Kenor: Genesis/Techno

Valli Art Gallery - Miami
By Raisa Clavijo
Catalonian street artist Kenor recently exhibited “Genesis/Techno” in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. This is not South Florida’s first contact with his work, as he previously left his mark on walls around the city. Kenor’s work is the result of his visual interpretation of music; that is to [...]
