The big questions for me, looking at the recent show at Morgan Lehman Gallery, were: Is David Rathman making a social statement about the loss of working-class America and the effect this has had on America’s conception of masculinity, or is he making a more general statement about changing conceptions about ‘manhood’ in America […]
Stopping by the 529 W. 20th street building on a Saturday afternoon gallery-hopping spree (or whenever you drop into Chelsea) is de rigueur. Virtually every gallery there has art worth seeing on a monthly basis. This go-around Kathryn Markel is presenting a show that includes some engaging and provocative city-scape paintings by Lisa Breslow.
Interview with Peter Frank, an art critic for the Huffington Post and formerly for LA Weekly, Village Voice and SoHo Weekly News. Peter has organized exhibitions for Documenta in Kassel, the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, and New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Arte Povera (Poor Art) was a movement begun in Italy in the late 60s. It was partially meant to break down the classification barrier between art and life by using common, everyday items and materials, but there was also a deeper and more radical political edge to this movement. The material that was often used […]
Trekked out to Bushwick last week to view Hrönir: Un-Lost Things curated by Hazel Lee Santino for BFP Creative… BFP Creative housed the show in their temporary storage galleries at Brooklyn Fire Proof. I was lost and disoriented at first, entering through the Brooklyn Fire Proof bar. As I tried to find the gallery space, I thought […]
To celebrate the release of his new CD, IDENTITIES ARE CHANGEABLE, saxophonist and composer Miguel ZENÓN and his quartet have settled in for a week long run at the Village Vanguard (November 18-23).
One cannot imagine a more perfect blend of high energy personnel as this cohesive ensemble comprised of pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Hans […]
Everything is in a state of flux. Every day in our own fragile bodies we wage a battle between growth and disintegration, inevitable decay despite requisite maintenance. In the exhibition “Daily Rot” we witness the results of energy expended by artist Joseph Gerard Sabatino as he pursues his mission to temporarily arrest decay. Through his […]
Portraits have come a long way.
