Hi everyone! 

I wrote a review of Scudorama, an early Paul Taylor dance, with sets and costumes by Alex Katz for Artforum!

 

I’m in a group show at Mu.Zee in Oostende, Belgium!

 

Friends in a Field: Conversations with Raoul De Keyser

17/12/2022 – 21/05/2023

Over the course of his nearly five-decade career, the Belgian artist Raoul De Keyser (1930–2012) created a group of artworks that bridged the concrete mysteries of the everyday and the intangible world of abstraction. Friends in a Field: Conversations with Raoul De Keyser takes the artist’s radical painterly practice as the beginning of a conversation with a diverse group of artists — both living and dead — whose works share a sensibility and attentiveness to the fragile intangibility of the world. In their paintings, sculptures, and works on paper, these artists join De Keyser in presenting the world back to us as a kind of abstract visual poetry.

Organized by Los Angeles-based guest curators Hanneke Skerath and Douglas Fogle in collaboration with Mu.ZEE curator Ilse Roosens, the exhibition includes works by:

Richard Aldrich, Forrest Bess, Matt Connors, René Daniëls, Raoul De Keyser, Vincent Fecteau, Maysha Mohamedi, Rebecca Morris, Betty Parsons, Amy Sillman, Ricky Swallow, Patricia Treib, Luc Tuymans, and Lesley Vance.

I wrote a review of Orwell’s Roses for Artforum–

Carolee Schneeman’s show Body Politics is now open at the Barbican in London. The beautiful book accompanying the show has a small essay by me about the artist as a painter. You can find the book here!

 

My book Faux Pas has been reissued by After 8 Books in an expanded edition! You can order directly from After 8 in Paris here. You can also pre-order for the 1/3/23 US release here.

 

 

 

American Academy of Arts and Letters new members show

10/28 to 12/4

I am included in a group show at the Hirshhorn in Washington DC! Put It This Way, curated by Associate Curator Anne Reeve. The show features mostly female-identified artists from the collection, and “a wide array of aesthetic, political, and historical concerns.” It runs from August 8, 2022 until the fall of 2023.

 

BTW the show is titled after a 1963 painting by American pop artist Rosalyn Drexler, whose work is featured in the exhibition.

I am happy to say that I am participating in the international exhibition of the 59th Venice Biennale curated by Cecilia Alemani this year!

 

The show, titled “The Milk of Dreams,” is a reference to the work and thinking of Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington. This main exhibition includes 213 artists from 58 countries and will be in the Central Pavilion (Giardini) and the Arsenale.

 

I was included in an exhibition at SFMoMA called Shifting the Silencerunning from April 9 through September 5, 2022.

 

“Named after artist Etel Adnan’s 2020 book about history and existence, Shifting the Silence embraces experimentation, impermanence, and subjectivity — bold yet poetic characteristics that mark the art of our time.”

 

I was in a group show this winter at David Zwirner!
