Gavin Brown's Enterprise and Venus over Manhattan present Made in space.
New York, NY : Gavin Brown's Enterprise : Venus Over Manhattan 2013 - Notes: "July 11 - August 10, 2013." Exhibition held at Gavin Brown's Enterprise and Venus Over Manhattan galleries. Cover has 'New York Times' and 'Los Angeles Times' superimposed on each other. Description: 53 pages : chiefly illustrations ; 42 cm Contents: Made in space / by Peter Harkawik and Laura Owens -- L.A. demystified! /by Peter Schjeldahl -- [artists]. Other Titles: Made in space. Responsibility: curated by Peter Harkawik and Laura Owens. Summary: "Made in Space" is an expanded version of an exhibition the two organized at L.A.'s Night Gallery in March. In a poetic news release, the curators go after then-Village Voice art critic Peter Schjeldahl for his 1981 report from the city, which lamented L.A.'s lack of public spaces, and the consequent isolation of its artists from one another. He "missed the point," the curators write, implying that these are instead L.A.'s great strengths, in that every artist is left to range about more freely, to focus more intently on his or her own practice. Their show argues not for a rigorously shared L.A. aesthetic but for a series of loosely shared sensibilities. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
