Jenny Holzer Shines New Light in Dark Places

‘As Holzer departs ever further from signatory writing and mark-making, her work remains unmistakable. That steadiness of purpose throws into relief the thoroughgoing transformation of her context.’

‘Time’s Passage, Indexed in Rubber’: On Eva Hesse’s ‘Five Sculptures’

‘[The exhibition's] thoughtful organization, built on intimate knowledge of the works’ histories of creation and display, emphasizes the way a shape, material or concept would often rematerialize in Hesse’s oeuvre in a slightly different form – refusing, in a sense, to end.’

Charles Gaines, By the Numbers

When I thought of taking on the process of using systems rather than my imagination in order to make work, that became the leitmotif of my entire life’s production. It’s not a freewheeling tabula rasa subjectivity where I can only work from my impulse and my intuition. It offers a much more rigid framework than that.

Rita Ackermann’s Elusive Quest for Truth (or At Least Cinema Vérité)

‘An artist makes a work, but then the making doesn’t stop when the artwork is finished by the artist. Once it’s exhibited, it’s really in the making still with the viewers’ vision, and what the viewers add to it. And that’s the real mystery about the greatness of art.’

Art galleries turn to fresh forms of collaboration as market splinters

'Hauser & Wirth’s management sees Collective Impact as 'an entrepreneurial way to support a smaller structure and put the artist in mind first,' says gallery president Marc Payot. The idea, he says, came up during the pandemic, 'when the gap between the larger galleries and the rest of the ecosystem got bigger.'
