Contextual Healing

Finished the article I’d been working on for the last two or three weeks on the Marina Abramovic retrospective at the MoMA and David Salle/Richard Phillips’ amalgamation entitled Your History is Not Our History at Haunch of Venison. I couldn’t help but contribute an opinion on such reverberating shows.  I’ve had an interest in Abramovic since investigating her work in comparison to Ana Mendieta, the Cuban-American artist most known for her Earth Works and the controversy surrounding her death. I respect Abramovic’s dedication to concept, to making attempts to integrate Life into her works. The show at Haunch of Venison immediately sparked my interest in referring to the East Village (a prior place of residence and my initial dream neighborhood in New York City) and factoring in Phillips’ insight. The show was eye-opening, a reassessment in the best possible way. CHECK IT.
