“Working excessively fancy parties as an event photographer for Vanity Fair and The New Yorker grants Jessica Craig-Martin unusual privilege to the über-privileged; apart from her commissioned work she makes photographs that are as brightly lit, colorful and crisp as the ones in the glossies but that zoom in on the details”, wrote Emma Drew

Artpace Spring Artist-in-Residence Exhibition: Glasstire reviews Nicholas Frank’s show.
“Frank is something of an intellectual mensch—the piece includes pamphlets (Artpace chronicles) of his political and philosophical musings framed through the relationships he developed throughout the residency (Frank is staunchly anti-social media and made a concerted effort to engage the local community directly)”.
Last fall Ohad Meromi finally unveiled his public sculpture “Sunbather” (2016) to the world. This ambiguous sunbathing humanoid is endowed with neither gender nor age. Its dimensions approximate the chassis of a Fresh Direct delivery truck. It’s made of about 400 pounds of bronze. It looks like something a pre-schooler might construct out of hot-pink pipe cleaners, magnified a millionfold.

Laurie Simmons delves into Carl D’Alvia’s sculpture, process, and the ideas behind his work in this interview for Bomb Magazine.
Stephen Maine writes, “This knockout, two-venue show — D’Alvia’s first solo outing in New York since 2013 — demonstrates the absurdist humor, masterful craftsmanship, and elliptical thinking of an artist for whom working at apparent cross-purposes is an end in itself: embracing irresolution, the banalities of existence combine to form imponderable conundrums.”
Jerry Saltz writes: “From some magical, mystical garden of unseen shapes all covered in surfaces that imitate tree trunks, animal fur, and feathers, sculptor-magician extraordinaire Carl D’Alvia’s double show is a tour de force, using simulated wood grain cast in resin, returning us to a golden age of heroic sculpture.”

Nathalie Karg Gallery is pleased to participate in the 1st edition of Untitled San Francisco, opening January 13th. In our booth C10, we will present new works by Nathlie Provosty, Dorian Gaudin and Amir Nikravan.
In addition, for Untitled Monuments, we will present a projection by Amba Sayal-Bennett titled Manta. Sayal-Bennett is interested in the process of translation— specifically, the effects and affects generated by the transposition of elements across different media. She created the projection piece site-specifically: layering the prints with other prints of drawings, obscuring sections of the projection bed using paper, objects and tape in order to alter the light fall of the projected image, and using tape, foam and other materials selected from the repertoire of objects and materials collected in her studio to work into the projected area of light. The artist thus explores how the drawings change through this transposition, and how structural dissonances created by this movement across sites (paper and room) affect how she works back into them.
Alexia Wulff writes: “Her work, deep and monumental, unveils a fantasy world of lush plant and floral life, soothing colors, and strangely polished faces, one most of us imagine only in our dreams. Whether it’s the eyes peering from behind delicately draped fabric, or the partially cropped images, her work suggests there’s something else to be seen.”

The installation also features a stainless steel outdoor shower for surfers to rinse off, on which Rirkrit Tiravanija will perform Tuesday, November 29th at 3PM, in the artist own words, the spirit of this collaboration is in the poetics of resistance, the poetics of rioting, referencing to the May 1968 events in Paris, “sous les pavés, la plage” (Under the paving stone, the beach).
