Karen Rosenberg at The New York Times likes Dasha Shiskin’s exhibition at Zach Feuer but complains that her installation is too gimmicky. I had almost those exact thoughts when looking at the show — the work relies a bit too heavily on the simple horizontal lines of the wallpaper to draw the exhibition together — though this seems to be a hallmark of Feuer artists. Nathalie Djurberg, Anton Henning, Danica Phelps, Luis Gispert; they all treat the gallery wall as though it were an additional surface to their art. It works to varying degrees with each of these artists, but in this show reads as a device used to support a few of the weaker pieces. Albeit harshly, Rosenberg rightly points out that this distracts from the exhibition itself.
