Deadness, Beauty, the Deep Past
The upcoming generation of art fans are skeptical of the art historical canon that is both exasperating and refreshing. More...


Julie Mehretu
Julie Mehretu's large scale abstractions at first read as gestural paintings, but are in face built-up layers of imagery drawn from widespread sources. More...


Maria Hupfield
Indigenous artist Maria Hupfield sees herself as a disruptor of stereotypes between craft and art, gender, and tropes of her own culture. More...


Shirin Neshat
The language of the Farsi poets of Shirin Neshat's native Iran is inscribed onto the people she photographs--and it is their lives that these images are about. More...

Isadora Stowe
Hundreds of everyday objects float in a colored haze that Isadora Stowe works like overlapping memories from various times and recollections. More...


David Kessler and Jim Waid
Jim Waid's paintings are layered with color, texture, and his own whimsical mark making. They exude a joy for the natural world free of polemics. David Kessler paints on aluminum panels with the feel of a noir film. More...
