    • 2008 May 16, Roberta Smith, “When Artworks Collide”, New York Times:

      They are vulnerable to some pest control poisons — Mr. Rasberry uses products containing the chemicals fipronil and chlorfenapyr — but given the ants’ staggering proliferation and environmental restrictions on the products, not enough of the chemicals can be put down to make a difference, Mr. Meyers said.

    • 2008 May 16, Roberta Smith, “Rauschenberg Got a Lot From the City and Left a Lot Behind”, New York Times:

      add
  9. graffitists
    • 2008 May 16, Roberta Smith, “When Artworks Collide”, New York Times:
      In 2004 Mr. Shafrazi relocated to an austere second-floor gallery in Chelsea, putting up long-running shows and concentrating mostly on the resale market: not only the graffitists but also blue-chip works by Picasso, Picabia and Francis Bacon .

      Near the end of a decade crammed with junk-art collectibles geared to junk-bond budgets, we get bare walls, open space, light and color in this survey of work by an artist, born in Denmark in 1967, who is well known for creating immaterialist magic through bare-bones means: literally, in some cases, mist and mirrors.
      add
  11. lessness
    • 2008 May 16, The New York Times, “Museum and Gallery Listings”, New York Times:
      This year’s light-touch show takes lowered expectations — lessness, ephemerality and failure, to use the words of its young curators, Henriette Huldisch and Shamim M. Momin — as its theme, and makes at least an appearance of trying to circumvent an object-obsessed market.
      add

    • 2008 May 16, The New York Times, “Museum and Gallery Listings”, New York Times:

      Rachel’s decision is partly based on her fear of another attack on New York: they were trying to understand, Hans recalls, “whether we were in a preapocalyptic situation, like the European Jews in the ’30s or the last citizens of Pompeii, or whether our situation was merely near apocalyptic, like that of the cold war inhabitants of New York, London, Washington and, for that matter, Moscow.”
      add

      add
  17. slapdown
    • 2008 May 16, George Vecsey, “A Hearing No One Needs”, New York Times:
      Ongoing cheating or a quiet slapdown within the league would be far preferable to a bunch of legislators trying to put their erratic showboating instincts into some coherent form of questioning.
      add
  18. surreality
    • 2008 May 16, Manohla Dargis, “Shaking Up the Crowd at Cannes”, New York Times:

  20. unabetted
  21. uncanniness
    • 2008 May 16, The New York Times, “Museum and Gallery Listings”, New York Times:

      add
  22. unfixable
    • 2008 May 16, Susan Dominus, “A School Succeeds With Extra Study and Little Homework”, New York Times:
      It sometimes seems as if there is something mysteriously unfixable about New York City’s public schools, some intractable problem that has held them back even as parks have blossomed and markets have boomed and crime has faded. Mr. Leonard’s model obviously isn’t replicable everywhere, but it suggests that there is some formula that can take a school out of its history of academic failure: passionate leadership, parents who respect that, and long hours all around.
      add
  23. unimplicated
    • 2008 May 16, Roberta Smith, “When Artworks Collide”, New York Times:
      Nothing escapes unimplicated or unmanipulated, least of all the show’s announcement: a picture of Mr. Shafrazi being arrested at MoMA in 1974.
      add

Sequestered[edit]

  1. oeil *
    • 2008 May 16, Roberta Smith, “When Artworks Collide”, New York Times:
      The oeil is really tromped in a veritable echo chamber of stylistic and generational clashes: real artworks “deface” real-looking copies of other works, evoking Mr. Shafrazi’s transgression against “Guernica.”
