Rodrigo Valenzuela in The New Yorker 9.12.17

“Where Do We Stand? Two Years of Drawing with Open Sessions”

From afar, Rodrigo Valenzuela’s moody, architectural compositions could be mistaken for charcoal ... (read more)

Katie Herzog in Art and Cake 9.5.17

Human Resources  
By Lorraine Heitzman
Through September 10th
A cynic might say that galleries with cavernous exhibition spaces are compelled to fill their walls with over-sized works and that the quality of the art often does not justify their square footage. Sometimes these large artworks seem intended to pay the rent or fill ever-larger museum spaces.

Opening Saturday, May 13th, from 6PM - 10PM
The Dangerous Professors, a curatorial project exhibiting over one hundred and fifty artists–educators, acts as a counter-action to the pervasive rightwing impulse whose spirit jeopardizes civil, artistic and academic freedom by calling out, shaming, and harming those it opposes. The exhibition responds by first inviting artists who define themselves as educators to participate, the result of which creates a list of art-educators that can ... (read more)
