Gallery Kayafas - Boston, Mass.
By Gregory Eltringham
It was a short walk from Samson Gallery, where I attended Steve Locke’s opening reception for his solo show “School of Love,” to the Gallery Kayafas, some two doors down, where I viewed “Family Pictures,” his second and concurrent solo show. “Family Pictures” is a compelling show, [...]

COMING TO POWER: 25 Years Of Sexually X-Plicit Art By Women

Maccarone Gallery - New York
By Taliesin Thomas
The recent presidential election outcome has many women asking the same question: Did straight-up sexism undermine the balloting process? While the “real” ethos of the coming presidential term has yet to be fully revealed, one marked result of the election aftermath seems to be a reinvigorated discussion [...]

Curated by Raisa Clavijo
By Paul Laster
Presenting a visual display in an educational center for the blind and visually impaired seems like a bit of a paradox, but that’s exactly what Annalaura di Luggo chose to do when she staged her exhibition “Blind Vision” at the Instituto Statale D’Istruzione [...]

Laura Nillni: No sé cuántas estrellas

Lélia Mordoch Gallery - Miami

A circumference on a chalkboard, a right triangle, a rhomb, are forms which we can fully intuit; the same held true with Ireneo for the tempestuous mane of a stallion, a herd of cattle in a pass, the ever-changing flame or the innumerable ash, the many faces of a [...]

Stephen Truax: How Will I Know

67 Ludlow Street - New York
Curated by Anne Luther
By Terence Trouillot
