David Gaither: Axiom

David Gaither: Axiom

511 Gallery - New York
By Kim Power
Maximalism. A term often associated with overabundance and sensory saturation. David Gaither, collagist, painter and self-proclaimed maximalist, takes ownership of the term in his exhibit, “Axiom,” at 511 Gallery in Manhattan. Gaither’s enthusiasm and consistent work ethic have already landed him a solo show at the Tubman [...]

Aron Wiesenfeld: Unwind the Winding Path

Jonathan LeVine Gallery - New York
By Kim Power
Aron Wiesenfeld’s current exhibition, “Unwind the Winding Path” at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in the Chelsea district of Manhattan, invites us to travel into virgin woodlands, down rivers of unknown origin and to lie down in green pastures strewn with wildflowers. It is an imaginary and untamed [...]



Perpetual Revolution

Perpetual Revolution

International Center of Photography - New York
By Keren Moscovitch
According to Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser, “Ideology represents the imaginary relationship of individuals to their real conditions of existence.”1 The International Center of Photography’s prescient exhibition “Perpetual Revolution”2 reveals photography’s role in constructing, and deconstructing, these very ideologies. The medium’s historical relevance to social and [...]



Amy Schissel: #everythingthathappensatonce

Amy Schissel: #everythingthathappensatonce

Laura Mesaros Gallery, West Virginia University - Morgantown, W.V.
By Jason Hoelscher
Amy Schissel has a lot to say, show, reveal and connect in her recent exhibition, titled “#everythingthathappensatonce.” This name is apt in that, although the paintings lack the unity and right-here presentness of, for example, a monochrome, the sheer volume of visual incident [...]

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 [...]



Blind Vision

Blind Vision

Istituto Paolo Colosimo - Naples, Italy
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 [...]
