The Players Club

A Review by Maria Kozak (MFA 2011)
A lot of heavy hitters this week so I'll keep it short and sweet.

Gagosian has a major Rauschenberg show and Anselm Keifer in Chelsea and a John Currin show uptown. The Rauschenberg show consists of a survey of his work from his early 'Combines' to the silk screen paintings of the 1960's. The Currin show consists of new paintings in his typical idealized, perverse fashion. Also uptown a show of Jenny Holzer's early work is at Skarstedt Gallery. The show consists of Holzer's signs spanning a decade from the late 1970's to the late 1980's.

Kent Dorn

In Chelsea Kent Dorn Remains is at Freight and Volume. Dorn's multi media, dreamy landscape paintings celebrate disenchanted suburban youth and their search for nature.

If you like Kent Dorn's work then you can also go see his counterpart Kim Dorland's New Material at Mike Weiss.



Also in Chelsea Luc Tuymans Corporate and Raymond Pettibon Hard in the Paint are open at the two David Zwirner locations. In this show Tuymans turns his attention to modern day corporate culture. Pettibon's work on the other hand embraces a wide spectrum of American 'high' and 'low' culture.


If you haven't gone yet, don't miss Wangechi Mutu's incredible painted collages in Hunt Bury Flee at Barbara Gladstone in Chelsea.
