My favorite exhibitions of 2012 is up at the L Magazine. No museum shows this year. Ghosts in the Machine was the only one that came close to making the list. Lots of under recognized talent this year, Viola Yesiltac, and Michael Barryhill amongst them.
4. Viola Yesiltac: Scharfstellen was Autofokus war, Balice Herling & Lewis
This was the most under-recognized show of the season in my opinion. It’s hard to say exactly what makes these photographs of paper so good, but part of it seems to be the transformation of recognizable objects into minimalist abstraction. It’s a simple but visually effective gesture.
