    Archeologists have found an area in Turkey which might have inspired the Garden of Eden story.  Gobekli Tepe is a region which once had overabundant vegetation and animal life, attracting numerous hunter-gathering bands which lived lives of extraordinary leisure and ease there. This was super-lush, fertile land that naturally provided an excess of food for everyone with minimal labor.  Yet, it…

    In this day and age it seems almost archaic to initially write this out by hand, but in recognition of Sam Trioli’s exhibition S., partially paying tribute to Harry S. Truman’s correspondence to his wife (circa 1945), it seems fitting to do so. I’ve got my pad of paper at my desk, sitting in my…

    Dread Scott’s Slave Rebellion ReenactmentA few days ago I went to see a slide presentation by performance and video artist Dread Scott; the event was part of a summer program curated by Olga Kopenkina at Station Independent Projects.

The uprising took place in Louisiana, on the…

    Inside and Out is a group show curated by Suechung Koh at Elga Wimmer Hyun Contemporary. The connecting thread through the show seems to involve the experience of new, immigrant, upwardly mobile New York City dwellers and how their new city provides novelty, excitement, and challenges for growth while also providing experiences of immense anxiety, concern and even defeat.

    For this show, Kyunghan…

    Imagine that as you are wandering around NY City you see two distinctive strangers bump into each other twice at two different locations.  You ask yourself – is this compresence or causality?  Perhaps this would call for an investigation.
