Artcritical

Artcritical artcritical, LLC, is publisher of artcritical.com, the online magazine of art and ideas, and organizer of The Review Panel, moderated by David Cohen at the National Academy Museum, NY and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia.

Publisher and Editor: David Cohen. Associate Editor: Nora Griffins. Editorial Assistant: Mary Negro artcritical.com launched as the personal website of writer and art historian David Cohen in 2001 and quickly evolved into his "blog" before that term enjoyed currency. Once blogs became ubiquitous, artcritical further evolved into a fully fledged online magazine with a roster of editors and contributors, and David's personal stuff was confined to the attic. That's the year we credit for our official launch, which makes us ten in 2013! In 2010 we underwent a major design overhaul to make powerful and effective use of our years of critical coverage, including several years' worth of David's writings as art critic of the New York Sun that sadly closed that year. The magazine also podcasts of The Review Panel and other lively public forum, lectures and debates.

Martha Armstrong at Bowery Gallery
In the jagged bright spaces of Armstrong’s paintings, traditional landscape turns into something fresh. Yes, It’s a welcoming, summery world. But it’s vertiginous rather than tranquil—every picture an endorphin rush. Branches and clouds fold into odd, exact origami shapes. Craft disappears into excitement. ALEXI WORTH

ART 3
109 Ingraham Street

Opening tonight at ART 3 in Bushwick is “Memories, Dreams, Reflections,” a show of paintings by Matthew Cole. Rendered in a loose yet graphical style, Cole’s paintings depict interior and exterior spaces populated by nondescript, anonymous figures. Pictured: Home Sweet Homer, 2014, acrylic on canvas, 72 x 80 inches. Image courtesy of the gallery.

Sarah Fuhrman: Complex Possessed
July 7 to July 30
Slag
56 Bogart Street Ground Floor

Opening tonight alongside several other shows at 56 Bogart is Sarah Fuhrman's debut solo exhibition at Slag. Despite some of them being tiny, her paintings embrace a maximalist aesthetic: She places unexpected, sometimes bizarre, imagery on top of map-like areas of poured paint and alongside rich textural passages, cramming everything onto surfaces as small as a few square inches.

Alan Vega: Keep IT Alive

JUNE 30 TO JULY 29
Invisible-Exports
89 Eldridge Street
(212) 226-5447

Nearly a year after his death at the age of 78, the work of punk rocker/artist Alan Vega is seeing a resurgence. His final paintings, a show of which opens tonight at Invisible-Exports, feature faceless ghostly figures, rendered in graphite and acrylic, emerging from thin, misty backgrounds. These haunting images serve as a prelude to another retrospective of Vega’s work, opening next month, organized by his long-time supporter Jeffery Deitch. ROMAN KALINOVSKI

Today's #MayDay. The art world, like all of capitalism, has a lot of hard working people who don't get recognized or compensated very well. Today is a day we celebrate working people and give them support, solidarity, and appreciation. Do you guys read @arthandlermag?

Thiago Rocha Pitta: The First Green
APRIL 01 TO APRIL 29

Marianne Boesky (Chelsea)
509 West 24th Street

Brazilian artist Thago Rocha Pitta renders landscapes in a variety of media in his exhibition, The First Green (thru April 29). A series of frescos on tile, “Seascape with Cyanobacteria”, depicts ancient single-celled organisms that produced most of the oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere billions of years ago. As the exact scale of these images is never made apparent, the viewer cannot distinguish individual cells from vast oceanic blooms. The timeframe is also ambiguous: is this a prehistoric past or a post-human future? Merging the microbiological with the geological, these frescos present a history of our planet in which humanity is but a momentary distraction from nature’s grand design. ROMAN KALINOVSKI

Peter Dreher: Behind The Mirror
APRIL 13 TO MAY 20

Koenig & Clinton
459 West 19th Street

Opening tonight at Koenig & Clinton, Peter Dreher’s latest exhibition presents a body of work focused on the human skull, a recurrent motif that goes back seven decades to his time as a student. Though best known for his long-term serial project “Tag und Tag Guter Tag” in which he paints the same glass of water every day, Dreher’s continuing return to the skull could be seen as a constant memento mori, a spectre of death that has haunted the artist his entire life. This exhibition also serves as a fitting finale for the gallery’s Chelsea space, being the last show prior to their move to Bushwick this summer. ROMAN KALINOVSKI
