Shockingly Orange, Invitingly Meandering, Immensely Imposing – Richard Serra at Gagosian

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 6 October 2011

Karen Rosenberg has written a passionate article entitled “Shockingly Orange, Invitingly Meandering, Immensely Imposing” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times reviewing the magnificent show of new sculpture by the immense sculptor Richard Serra.  The show, entitled “Junction/Cycle” (through 26 November 2011, at Gagosian Gallery, 555 West 24th Street, Chelsea; (212) 741-1111, gagosian.com), composed of two sculptures, one called “Junction”, the other “Cycle”, offers a spectacle of awe, immensity and space, and imposes the active, and reflective, participation of all who visit.  As Serra himself has said, “I consider space to be my primary material.”  One begins to understand.  Awesome.

 Apphia Michael has written a short, crisp article entitled, rather directly, “Art of Attraction photography exhibition, New York” in the always-coveted Wallpaper* Magazine looking at the current exhibition of photography at the recently opened Float Gallery in New York City (‘Art of Attraction’ is running at Float Gallery until 3 April 2011, F.L.O.A.T. Gallery, 300 West 22nd Street, NY, NY 10011).  As Michael writes, the exhibition includes  “a mix of photographs that capture the themes of sexual desire and attraction, as well as…other photographic works that look to document our global obsession with the unforgiving Western ideal of physical beauty.”  Hmmm.  Mirror, mirror on the wall…

Very interesting slideshow, here.

Roberta Smith has written an interesting review of three exhibitions by younger sculptors, entitled “Creative Debate Among Sculptors, Not Too Loud” in the Art Review section of the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the current shows by Johannes VanDerBeek (“Another Time Man”, through June 12 at Zach Feuer Gallery, 530 West 24th Street, Chelsea, zachfeuer.com), Josephine Meckseper (through June 26 at Elizabeth Dee, 545 West 20th Street, Chelsea, elizabethdeegallery.com), and Siobhan Liddell (“Ordinary Magic”, through Saturday at CRG Gallery, 535 West 22nd Street, Chelsea, crggallery.com).

As usual, Ms Smith’s articulate, sensitive and informed article is well worth reading, and the exhibitions, themselves, are well worth viewing. The article includes a slide show, here.

Ah, yes, dysfunction.
