When ‘New Art’ Made New York the Culture Capital

The New York Times July 21, 2022

Artists in the early 1960s drew from a heady mix: Mad magazine and Marilyn; the civil rights movement and the death of a president; queer bodies and “Pieta.” It’s all at the Jewish Museum.

Saturated with objects but also different colors and emotions, the installations by American artist Portia Munson reflect her interest in systems and structured formations. For several decades already, she has been combining sculpture, installation, painting, and digital photography, to explore consumerism from the feminist and environmentalist lens.

It’s difficult to truly understand where ideas originate. Even well-documented moments in history like the invention of the telephone or the light bulb get rehashed and retold in new and different ways. We are often left wondering what spurred the ideas into reality and what helped to make the different mental connections.

Evergreen Review July 8, 2022

Throughout the trendy, catchword-ridden East Village scene of the 1980s, Martin Wong’s work defied categorization. While others painted anxious figures in broad strokes and strident colors, he rendered his meticulous urban landscapes in a muted palette dominated by umbers, blacks, and rusty reds.

Hunter Reynolds, Artist Who Dressed Up AIDS, Dies at 62
The New York Times July 3, 2022

One night in 1989, Hunter Reynolds, then a 30-year-old artist living in New York City, made himself up at home with the help of a friendly drag queen. He was intrigued with the results: his handsome face embellished and transformed, neither man nor woman, like an androgynous cabaret star in Berlin during the Weimar years. He tossed on a tweed coat and headed out to various art-world events. Friends didn’t recognize him, so he pretended to be a performance artist visiting from Los Angeles.

Inside the Benenson Center’s Newmark Gallery, a 15-foot-wide blue backyard swimming pool is filled, not with water, but with thousands of found plastic artifacts, organized by graduated shades of blue.

Today, Martin Wong (1946–1999) is undoubtedly best known as an unwavering chronicler of a bygone era in New York’s Loisaida neighborhood, his meticulous renderings of the material world’s seemingly inconsequential details, like brick walls or chain-wire fencing, and, of course, his adaptation of the fingerspelling gestures used in American Sign Language.

Upon seeing Dinh Q. Lê’s work, one’s instinctive reaction is often to move closer. Lê’s meticulous photo-weaving process, inspired by Vietnamese grass mat weaving, creates intricate collages of found images that tie identities, histories, and memories engrossed in conflict and displacement. 

It’s not new for an artwork to state its queer allusions so clearly. But as collectors of LGBTQIA+ art are becoming more numerous, and (in the West in particular) queer artists are becoming more visible in museum shows, galleries are an important part of the puzzle in supporting these artists. How are dealers working to represent the varied practices of LGBTQ artists today?

“52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone” revisits the practices and artists of the Ridgefield, Connecticut museum's seminal 1971 feminist art show, Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists," and brings new voices into the conversation.

Female deities, demons, and religious figures have been a source of artistic inspiration for centuries. Yet all too often, their image and stories have fallen victim to a prurient male gaze and patriarchal ideas of womanhood.

Guadalupe Maravilla’s Tierra Blanca Joven at the Brooklyn Museum consists of “Disease Throwers”—large sculptures that function as healing sound baths, a curation of Mayan artifacts from the museum’s collection, video performance, and a community healing room.

Four legs in a garden—Glaessner’s first exhibition in a French institutional context—is hung luxuriously under Le Consortium’s vast 12-meter ceiling in their monumental White Box gallery. The show’s general similarity benefits from this grandeur and includes three new works of paths and party scenes that were created specifically for the exhibition site. Though some of the canvases are small, they all uses the electric hues of a Fauvist palette.
