Whale, hello there.
The universe becomes a fist and then we die. Okay. Naked under Perseids, big deal, the rip. Nothing anyone says matters anyway so just fucking say it. Bats, ocean, cessation of time.
My review of this kickass book is up at COLDFRONT.
With ruin porn photographs and discussions of whether creativity can save Detroit persisting at every turn, it’s no surprise that art galleries have taken an interest in the city. The latest exhibition is a group show titled Another Look at Detroit: Parts 1 and 2 and split, accordingly, between two spaces in Chelsea, Marianne Boesky Gallery and Marlborough Chelsea (it’s unclear which part is 1 and which is 2, or if it matters).
Fixed Unknowns, the current exhibition on the upper level of Tribeca’s Taymour Grahne Gallery, breeds constant questioning of the image before the eyes. The group show featuring works by Hannah Whitaker, Shirana Shabazi, and Kamrooz Aram embraces the unstable, seeking to topple the stasis of the two-dimensional plane.
