A classic Robert Morris felt work on view at the Tate Modern. In this series of works, Morris explores issues of order and disorder within Minimalist forms. The artist addresses the inherent qualities of materials versus the intent of the creator. Photo and text Juliana Balestin
"Cellblock is organized into parts I and II. The first section is a spare hanging of works, setting up a series of similarities and differences in relation to the cellblock theme, while the second fleshes out this theme by presenting a far greater range of cellblock types, illuminated with diagrams, with the full knowledge that any such showing can only be representative, never inclusive."
Cellblock I and II features work by artists such as Robert Motherwell, Robert Smithson, Kelley Wlaker, Peter Halley, Bruce Nauman, Vito Acconci, Jean Genet and Donald Judd. On view through February 2nd, 2013 at Andrea Rosen Gallery, 525 and 544 west 24th street, New York. Text by Robert Hobbs, the curator, photo Alexis Dahan
Following last Spring's Unpainted Paintings exhibition, curator Alison Gingeras organized the latest Luxembourg & Dayan exhibition in the gallery's Upper East Side townhouse. The multi-floor space includes works by John Currin, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Robert Morris, Agnes Martin, Mark Flood and Francesco Clemente among others. Grisaille celebrates gray scale as the underrated tool in significant formal advances in art work and recognizes its ability to provide a depth of emotion and psychology to works. Grisaille is on view through January 14th 2012 at Luxembourg & Dayan, 64 East 77th Street, New York. Photo and text Juliana Balestin
A beautiful work from the great Blind Time Drawings series by Robert Morris. To create these images, Morris blindfolds himself and attempts to follow his original guidelines and time limits for the image as a way to explore the tremendous variables between intent and result. On view through December 17th 2011 at The Sonnabend Gallery, 536 West 22nd Street, New York. Photo and text Juliana Balestin
