“Fringe” in The New Yorker Year End Review

The pandemic is ongoing and confusion persists—and I’m not talking about the Omicron variant. You can’t discuss art in 2021 without mentioning N.F.T.s. Non-fungible tokens stormed the gates of the contemporary-art establishment in March, when Beeple, the nom de keyboard of the digital artist Mike Winkelmann, sold a crypto-art work at Christie’s for more than sixty-nine million dollars. As to the calibre of Beeple’s art, based on my admittedly cursory viewing, I’d say that it’s aptly described in his Instagram bio as…Read More

Sean Fader featured in The Brooklyn Rail: “Difference Machines: Technology and Identity in Contemporary Art”

Machines have a history of generating identity formations with significant social implications. Buffalo is known as the “City of Light” because the electricity produced at Niagara Falls at the end of the 19th century made it possible to introduce street lamps, which stimulated its industrial boom. The illuminated urban environment transformed social interactions. Everywhere, electricity produced new work forces and identity formations—including stereotypical assumptions about aptitude and engagement. Recognizing this is crucial to understanding the work presented in Difference Machines:…Read More

Fringe reviewed by TheGuide.Art

A double pun centers this show: “fringe” might describe an element of fashion ubiquitous to western attire, or else describe something that occurs at the periphery, the edge of a movement. The material itself is indeed found in this group show at Denny Dimin Gallery—along with quilts, crystals, ribbon, cut paper, and more. But the alternate definition applies as well. With a dozen artists on view, “Fringe” documents the contemporary resurgence of interest in the 1970s Pattern and Decoration art…Read More

Fringe reviewed in The New Yorker

In the early nineteen-seventies, a group of American artists who shared an unironic love of craft, vivid color, and kitsch—rebels against the ornamentation-averse restraint of the Minimalists—became known as the Pattern and Decoration movement (a.k.a. P&D). By the mid-eighties, the initial enthusiasm, mostly in Europe, for the group’s paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and textiles had waned. Individual artists succeeded, but P&D was written off as a footnote that was slightly embarrassing. (And also threatening: it’s no coincidence that the group’s focus…Read More
