New Season

The season starts with Hellen van Meene at Yancey Richardson.  Haunting, these small photographs are some of the best I’ve seen this month.

Maya Lin at Pacewildenstein: Given that her piece is in the same exact place and uses a similar concept (everyday components, in this case 2×4 wood cuttings–arranged to appear like a mountainous landscapes) the comparison to Tara Donovan’s amazing show a few years ago dwarfs any appreciation of this one.

Peter Hujar at Matthew Marks: Reminisent of Arbus’ photographs of retarded, these, which I’ve never seen before, are moving and disturbing–as you’d expect from Hujar.

Rebecca Warren at Matthew Marks, too:  I really like this show.  Why?  I’m not sure, but I’m going to figure it out.
