Erin O’Keefe’s Things as They Are in The New Yorker

Read in The New Yorker. Printed in the October 5, 2015 Issue. ERIN O’KEEFE September 9, 2015 – October 10, 2015 Photographs of geometric arrangements of painted boards and tinted Plexiglas will inevitably draw comparisons to Barbara Kasten’s influential oeuvre. O’Keefe, a New York artist and architect, nods to Kasten (and to Eileen Quinlan and Sara VanDerBeek) but stakes her own claim to the territory—call it Bauhaus playhouse—in a series of seductively simple color images. Using reflected light and overlapping colors,…Read More

Erin O’Keefe named PDN’s Photo of the Day

Read on PDN Erin O’Keefe: Perspective, Light, Color September 9, 2015 Photographer Erin O’Keefe is fascinated by the way the camera “translates a three-dimensional subject into two-dimensional image.” A licensed architect who made sculptures before she devoted herself to photography about five years ago, O’Keefe composes the elements in her still lifes in a way that confuses perspective. Images in her newest series, “Things as They Are,” opening tonight at Denny Gallery in New York, are elegantly simple: They are…Read More

Metamodern reviewed in Hyperallergic

Read on Hyperallergic Going Meta: Art after the Death of Art by Thomas Micchelli, August 22, 2015 Terminology is slippery, and using it as the premise for an exhibition can be slipperier still (witness the Museum of Modern Art’s recent stumble with “atemporality” in The Forever Now: Contemporary Painting in an Atemporal World). But the concept underlying Metamodern, a group show at Denny Gallery on the Lower East Side, actually holds the potential to enrich an already strong array of works…Read More

Metamodern in on-verge.org

Read on on-verge.org METAMODERNISM by Kristi Arnold, August 19, 2015 Oscillating between modernism and postmodernism, the term metamodernism represents contemporary work concerned with modes of self-expression while reviving historical principals and techniques. And yet, metamodernism is not so simply defined. As noted by Timotheus Vermeulen and Robin van den Akker in the 2010 article, Notes on Metamodernism, the prefix “meta” in relation to metamodern stands for artwork that is “between,” “with” and “beyond“ modernism and postmodernism. Therefore, contemporary work of today is…Read More

Meet the Artist Drawing Without Fear: Lauren Seiden on Radically Reshaping the Work on Paper By Dylan Kerr, May 19, 2015 For the past several years, the born-and-bred New York artist Lauren Seiden has been quietly updating one of the most fundamental artistic mediums: graphite (i.e. pencil) on paper. More akin to wall-mounted sculptures than the term “works on paper” may initially suggest, Seiden’s pieces appear at first glance to be welded out of sheets of metal…Read More

Interview of Jordan Tate by Elizabeth Denny

Jordan Tate was born in 1981 in Kentucky and lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he is an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Cincinnati. His work is based in ongoing research concerning the visual and conceptual processes of image comprehension, and as such, has mostly been photographic. His work is deeply inquisitive about the ontology and transparency of the photograph in a post-digital, image-literate age. Tate has a Bachelor of Philosophy in Interdisciplinary Studies from Miami University and…Read More
