Lutz Bacher, Closed Circuit, (1997-2000). 40 minutes. Digital animation of video stills on LCD monitor, color, silent.
At the P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center in Queens this past fall, Lutz Bacher’s “MY SECRET LIFE” exhibition opened my eyes unexpectedly. This painting, photography, drawing and video exhibit presented a point about sexism and violence in our society. This exhibit has wall to wall pictures that represent many things about sexism toward women thought our history; some things go really far back.
As I walked through the exhibit I immediately was taken in to it, but probably not the way the artist wants its viewers to be. [click to continue….]
Coming to the MAD Museum helps a person explore art on a more creative level, and also helps when you want to find something good to review. If one of us Teen Reviewers and Critics was not interested in writing a review from an outing (cause it hadn’t moved us one way or the other), we could always write one for an exhibition at the MAD. It is our home on Columbus Circle every week! And in addition to exploring the main show “Slash: Paper Under the Knife,” we had time to see other two exhibitions: “Ghost Stories” and “Reveling the Collection.”
“Ghost Stories” caught my eye because the creativity of the design firm Nendo definitely shows. Everything looks so glamorous from afar, and when viewed up close, you see the flaws and even the process through which sculptures and furniture were made. [click to continue….]
