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

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 [...]

Patricia Bellan-Gillen. Willful Wondering: Drawings 2011-2016

Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University - Pittsburgh

By Kristina Olson
Roaming this large exhibition of recent drawings was akin to stepping into a life-sized children’s pop-up book. Patricia Bellan-Gillen’s prolific output over the last five years comes in three formats included here: smaller colored pencil and collaged works, painterly large-scale pencil and acrylic [...]



Andra Ursuta: Alps

Andra Ursuta: Alps

New Museum - New York
By Kim Power
The spring exhibit “Andra Ursuta: Alps” at the New Museum in New York City feels very much like an abandoned set design from the original Star Trek (1966) series, empty of actors to bring to life a room of props. The entrance to the installation is guarded [...]

Carlos Motta: Histories for the Future

At Pérez Art Museum, New York-based Carlos Motta (Bogota, 1978) presents an exhibition through which he explores extremely contradictory positions about sexuality and eroticism in indigenous and European cultures during the conquest and colonization of Latin America. His research addresses the way in [...]



Christopher Knowles: In a Word

Christopher Knowles: In a Word

Institute of Contemporary Art - Philadelphia
Curated by Anthony Elms and Hilton Als.
By Frederick Gross
The poet John Ashbery once called Christopher Knowles’ typed pictographic works “pure Conceptualism,” and this exhibition, co-curated by chief curator Anthony Elms and guest curator Hilton Als, certainly make a case for Knowles’ inclusion among notable artists of the 1970s [...]



Corinne Wasmuht

Corinne Wasmuht

SCAD Museum of Art - Savannah, GA
By Todd Schroeder
A technological dream space full of paradoxes: repetitions and multiple entrances, a space for narrative that leads nowhere in particular. Hers is a painting in which the flat pattern of pixelated camouflage and the deep depth of Renaissance perspective fight for space, in which the [...]
