Tilt-shift compassion

It’s hard to believe it’s been more than a decade since James Casebere’s photography was included in the Whitney Bienniel.

His work seems to have gotten more austere and cerebral and political […]

Spirituality at The Armory Show

On Saturday, I wandered lonely like a cloud through The Armory Show, at the edge of Hudson Yards. That domineering real estate venture is the child of our precarious finance-driven economy. It’s a forbidding, crystalline, Antarctic Fortress of Solitude rising up along the river, with Dubai-like heights so reflective its towers almost disappear against the […]

Beauty, and Dave Hickey, reconsidered

In The Invisible Dragon, Dave Hickey argues for the unruly vitality of the human imagination against forces of control—economic, political, and academic.
