The Week in Review

 

Spring has been late in coming as freezing temperatures sweep through Europe.

Other incidentals include France’s Le Pen dynasty going through a rebranding from their current name, National Front. Indeed, wherefore ’tis but the name that is ignoble – a “détail de l’histoire.” O, be some other name!

Trump has a momentary lapse into clarity with regard to sensible gun laws, but then is quickly coddled back into his old self after meeting with the NRA – an organization that has managed to mechanize its terror and bump-stocked it for faster delivery. A testament of American democracy in action, in case anyone was having any doubts.

General elections are to be held today in Italy. We will find out just how far mistrust and dissatisfaction can lead a people to disappointment.

And just to bring it back to the art world, in the grand French tradition, Paris is still debating whether to accept the Bouquet de Merde gift supposedly to memorialize the victims of the Paris attack propose by Koons [pronounced Con] who is not really an artist, the work, scarcely a memorial (many doubting whether it’s even art), and the gesture, far from being a gift.

Here now is the review for the week in the arts.

 

Dave McDermott

The Long Goodbye: Dave McDermott

Dave McDermott’s new works continue his distinctive approach to painting, consistently seeking to enlarge the medium’s inherent boundaries and resisting easy categorization. Through March 11, 2018 at Grimm Gallery, New York.

Paul Nash

Journeys with The Waste Land

Paul Graham

The Whiteness Of The Whale / Paul Graham

Referencing Melville’s Moby-Dick, the title alludes to the blindness of men in the obsessive search for something, and forms the basis of the metaphor Paul Graham uses for this exhibition. Through May 27, 2018 at Bombas Gens Centre d’Art.

 

Raoul Hausmann

Raoul Hausmann. Vision in Action
