Rigamarole

Adam McEwen from Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery


The Biennial opened yesterday. Quoting Jerry Saltz from Artnet:

"Day for Night" is filled with work I’m not interested in; it tries to do too much in too little space; it is often dry and confusing. Nevertheless, the show is a compelling attempt to examine conceptual practices and political agency, consider art that is not about beauty, reconsider reductivism, explore the possibility of an underground in plain sight, probe pre-modern and archaic approaches, posit destruction and chaos as creative forces, and revisit ideas about obfuscation and anonymity. This show is less market-driven than usual; in fact it attempts to cross swords with conventions that have brought us to the brink of madness. It’s also an anti-manifesto taking on romanticism, expressionism and decorative psychedelia.

I can't wait until next week!
More reports coming in from the Whitney (this will be updated)

Damn... I would expect Artnet to come up with better iamges than that. I mean all fuzzy and shit. Plus no technique attached to the image is completly useless.
