Printing Error: Paper Jam at Source

Wade Guyton OS at the Whitney was a huge disappointment, but not for the reasons you think.  I went to see the show today with a friend and former colleague whom I first met when I arrived on the shores of this intense city looking for a job in the art world, and my partner, […]

Soho Versus Harlem: Art or Real Life?

Finally an interesting installation in New York City. Phew! I was thinking that sculpture was dead. Where are the Ann Hamilton’s and Robert Gober’s of this decade?  Black Acid Co-op at Deitch Projects in New York is one of the best shows that I’ve seen in New York in a while. It is completely self […]
