ERIC FISCHL


ART:
Eric Fischl is showing glowingly intense paintings of bullfighters and bulls, death and dying, and older men and great clothes. There’s even a sexed-up subplot: As you progress through the show, blurred-out and missing genitals give way to guys with butts so cute your heart will go pitter-pat, regardless of what team you play for. It’s Fischl’s sexiest, saddest, and best show in years. NYMAG
Thru 12/19 at Mary Boone Gallery Chelsea 541 W.24 Th St. NYC

SPENCER FINCH


ART:
Ever since that imp Marcel Duchamp crawled into the unmapped space between a work of art and its title, artists have mined this rich artistic terrain. Spencer Finch does so as well as anyone, and his poetic show includes a large spiral jetty of colored candles that—as the title, 366 (Emily Dickinson’s Miraculous Year), lets on—deploys the colors mentioned in 366 Dickinson poems. Sweet. — Jerry Saltz NYMAG

CARROL DUNHAM


ART:
At Gladstone Gallery, Carroll Dunham’s outdone himself with the latest in his optically electric visions of prelapsarian bliss, postlapsarian sex, and some of the most vividly painted female genitalia in the history of art. It’s like cave painting starring Matisse’s bathers on ’shrooms, wearing Aztec headdresses as seen by professional pornographers—one of the best painting shows of the decade.

TIM BURTON


ART:
Tim Burton @ The Museum Of Modern Art of NYC Thru 26 April 2010
This major career retrospective on Tim Burton (American, b. 1958), consisting of a gallery exhibition and a film series, considers Burton's career as a director, producer, writer, and concept artist for live-action and animated films, along with his work as a fiction writer, photographer and illustrator. Following the current of his visual imagination from early childhood drawings through his mature work, the exhibition presents artwork generated during the conception and production of his films, and highlights a number of unrealized projects and never-before-seen pieces, as well as student art, his earliest non-professional films, and examples of his work as a storyteller and graphic artist for non-film projects. The opposing themes of adolescence and adulthood, and the elements of sentiment, cynicism, and humor inform his work in a variety of mediums—drawings, paintings, storyboards, digital and moving-image formats, puppets and maquettes, props, costumes, ephemera, sketchbooks, and cartoons. Taking inspiration from sources in pop culture, Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking as a spiritual experience, influencing a generation of young artists working in film, video, and graphics.

SEBASTIEN SCHULLER AT SYCAMORE RESIDENCY



MUSIC AND ART:
Sebastien Schuller’s four-week Sycamore residency begins this evening with Drawlings.
About Sebastien’s 2007 album, Happiness:
aps out of fear that run-of-the-mill electronic experimentation is starting to get old, many artists are giving up the ghost of empty beats in favor of talking about their feelings. There is no one more ready for the task than Paris native S├ębastien Schuller, who is poised to become the poster-boy for a new genre (emo-lectro?) with Happiness, a dream-like reflection on loss of innocence told through a vocal mixer.” – Nora Cronin for CM

DAVID SHRIGLEY


ART:
Cerealart is pleased to preview a new project by David Shrigley, "Brass Tooth"
David Shrigley is well known for his witty sculpture's, drawings and hand-written texts. His art frequently asks questions about the nature of contemporary art and its audience.
In his sculptural works, he makes physical some of his more curious and eccentric propositions by transforming found objects or by playing with their scale. Shrigley enlarges objects and imbues them with funny eccentric proportions as is the case of "Brass Tooth". He parodies the excessive and ridiculous aspects of the culture market and his rapidly executed art suggests desire to exploit and question the logic of contemporary art. Expressed in an extensive and expanding range of media, David Shrigley consistently seeks to widen his public. Shrigley is an artist who achieves the capacity to make his audience view the world in his terms entirely. Operating frequently outside the gallery sphere, the artist disseminates his ideas in his weekly contribution to The Guardian, prolific publishing projects, collaborations with musicians and an interactive website.
David Shrigley was born in 1968 and lives and works in Glasgow and has exhibited widely in the UK and around the world. He is represented in New York by the Anton Kern Gallery. He also exhibits with Yvon Lambert in Paris and Galleri Nicola Wallner in Copenhagen. He has also been included in exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Kansas City Art Institute, The MCA Chicago, and The Tate Modern in London. http://www.cerealart.com

MARY ELLEN MARK


ART:
MARY ELLEN MARK has achieved worldwide visibility through her numerous books, exhibitions and editorial magazine work. She has published photo-essays and portraits in such publications as LIFE, New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair. For over four decades, she has traveled extensively to make pictures that reflect a high degree of humanism. Today, she is recognized as one of our most respected and influential photographers. Her images of our world's diverse cultures have become landmarks in the field of documentary photography. Her portrayals of Mother Teresa, Indian circuses, and brothels in Bombay were the product of many years of work in India. A photo essay on runaway children in Seattle became the basis of the academy award nominated film STREETWISE, directed and photographed by her husband, Martin Bell.

ROBERT FRANK'S THE AMERICANS


ART:
This exhibition celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of The Americans, Robert Frank’s influential suite of black-and-white photographs made on a cross-country road trip in 1955–56. Although Frank’s depiction of American life was criticized when the book was released in the U.S. in 1959, it soon became recognized as a masterpiece of street photography. Born in Switzerland in 1924, Frank is considered one of the great living masters of photography. The exhibition features all 83 photographs published in The Americans and will be the first time that this body of work is presented to a New York audience. In addition, the exhibition includes contact sheets that Frank used to create the book; earlier photographs made in Europe, Peru, and New York; a short film by the artist on his life; and his later re-use of iconic images from the series.

Josh Gosfield : Gigi Gaston, The Black Flower
You all remember Gigi Gaston, don’t you? That Bulgarian-Gypsy pop star from the Johnny Hallyday era, beloved of teen magazines and scandalized in the mid-seventies after her marriage to an Italian movie actor went bad? Oh, wait: Gigi is the entirely fictional yet utterly plausible creation of artist Josh Gosfield. The story of her “life” is told via all those magazine covers and video clips, produced with incredible fidelity to their era’s graphic design, and on view at Steven Kasher Gallery. You’ll be half-tempted to go home and search for Gigi on eBay, just to make sure she’s a fake.NYMAG

ANSELM REYLE


ART:
Anselm Reyle’s super-snazzy, super-shiny sculptures and wall works provide a surprise visit to the olden aesthetic of 2006, when stuff like this ruled art fairs and auctions. Yes, it’s market-driven merch, but it also provides big optical hits of pizzazz and harnessed ambition, with substantial stretches of wow time. I can’t not enjoy it— and I also can’t stop imagining the art-storage facilities where a lot of art like this is headed. Don’t miss it before it all lands in someone’s basement. — Jerry Saltz NYMAG
