“Carol Rama: Antibodies”

Remarkably, Rama, a self-taught Italian artist, lived to the ripe old age of 103, and the energy that sustained her for so long is evident in the aggressively erotic drawings drawings that were her métier. Much of her long career was spent in obscurity, though in the last decade of her life she received major recognition in the form of museum shows and the award of a Golden Lion for lifetime achievement at the 2003 Venice Biennale. This is her first major survey in the United States.

“Louise Lawler: WHY PICTURES NOW”

Associated with the Pictures Generation, Lawler was also one of the authors of Institutional Critique, a Conceptualist genre that made museums and other constituents of the art establishment the subject of a deconstructive inquiry. In Lawler’s case, that entailed photos of other artist’s works hanging in museums, storage rooms and the home of collectors. Elegant and cooly composed, Lawler’s images demystified the art object by showing how it lives as a commodity and piece of decor. MoMA surveys her career, which spans nearly 40 years.

Marlon Mullen

Exhibition announcements, art magazine covers and auction house catalogs and some of the source materials that Mullen, who is both autistic snd self-taught, draws upon to create his thickly painted canvases. They're charged with an ineffable, visual presence that gives the efforts of many so-called insider artists a run for their money.

This publication is totally missing out on  the best Artist in America, I saw this artist work at Wichita State University of last year, this artist took recyclables and woven them like Rumpelstiltskin did with straw, in other words taking trash, and turning it into works that stir up a persons desire on site, and demands your attention. If Time Out of New York ignore this guy, you're truly missing a rising Star.

Won't be looking to TimeOutNY's laughable, trend-following dilettantes for gallery recommendations anytime soon.
