Clocks

We’re working around the clock, trying to beat it, racing against it. We’re never clocking out. It’s how the world works. Meanwhile, time-based works, as they’re termed these days, are increasingly appearing in galleries and museums. Time itself is appearing in many instances. An art-clock boom is on. Read More

Tomorrow, Sotheby’s private selling gallery S2 will open “Hue + Cry,” a show curated by man-about-the-art-world Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld. There’s a great deal of fun abstraction here, which has been a theme running through the other shows he’s curated. It’s definitely worth a look. See for yourself!

Look at This! ‘Robert Irwin: Dotting the i’s & Crossing the t’s: Part II’ at the Pace Gallery

6 Photos

Back in the early 1970s Robert Irwin built what he called “the third-largest optical instrument in the world,” a 33-foot-tall column of clear acrylic that was to be barely perceptible to the eye when it was properly installed and polished. Unfortunately, that never actually happened. The collector who commissioned it died before it was finished, and a subsequent installation—in a mall—was handled rather clumsily. It eventually went into storage. (The Los Angeles Times told that story back in 1993.) Read More

Look at This! ‘This Is Not a Fashion Show’ at Bortolami, by Tara Subkoff/Imitation of Christ

"This is Not a Fashion Show"

The artist, actress and designer Tara Subkoff, working with her collective Imitation of Christ, recently filled Bortolami gallery with a host of actresses and dancers for “This Is Not a Fashion Show,” a show that involved, at its essence, women putting on and taking off clothing for two hours. The show took place during Fashion Week last week and, as you can see from the video below, it went swimmingly. “I merely suggested that the women bring back the memories of the times they had to get dressed for an occasion that was a very happy time, or a very important time,” Ms. Subkoff said over the phone. “Just to think of getting dressed for a very happy time seemed to bring up a lot of emotion and panic for women.” Though they were photographed by nearly everyone who entered, the actresses, whose ages ranged from 8 to 70, were all very much in their own world. “I definitely wanted to make sure that everyone was having a private moment and that nobody paid attention to anyone who came in. It was also very much about complete narcissism and complete focus on the self,” she said. Read More
