Lower East Side Roundup: UNTITLED, 47 Canal, and Lisa Cooley

Not much connects the Lower East Side’s current crop of summer shows, except maybe for a shared inclination towards some (much-needed) weirdness. 47 Canal brings a seaweed-covered TV to DTR, while those looking for their fix of visual hallucinogenics should head to Lisa Cooley’s Eric’s Trip. UNTITLED’s The Husk, meanwhile, has the creepiest thing you’ll see all summer in the form of Josh Kline’s disembodied FedEx worker heads.

Here we go again: Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 just released the names of this year’s exhibitors. Though the list runs about as long as last year’s (258 in 2013, 257 in 2012), the fair has added Edition, a new section of 13 art publishers that includes New York’s Pace Prints and Two Palms. And though there are some Western European additions (mostly from Berlin), Art Basel’s press release notes that nearly half of this year’s exhibitors are from the Americas, making the Miami Beach show “the premier destination for galleries from the United States and Latin America.” That includes a couple more local Florida galleries and Chicago’s Corbett vs. Dempsey, which was added to the Nova section.

Art Basel Satiated, Returns to Lair: All Our News From The Fairs

Like most art fairs, Art Basel Miami Beach is conspicuously unaware of its past. The fair closed yesterday, and already its website header has begun hyping Miami Beach 2013. As an art fair, with its accompanying talks, lounges, and VIP access, it’s something between a market and a luxury brand, and neither markets nor luxury brands have much use for memory. In the business of selling “the very best,” you shouldn’t say whether it’s more or less “best” than last year; this is most true of “the very best price.”

So if you missed it, you missed it, and good luck piecing it back together. Thankfully, AFC is here to help, chiseling snide remarks into the bedrock of history. We went to the fairs and then wrote about what we saw at the fairs, which means this: If you say you saw the things we wrote about, some people will believe that you went to the fairs, yourself. Try it out; it’s fun. When art fairs give you false forgetting, give them false memories right back.

Time for our Lower East Side installment in our “We Went to…” series. And you know what that means: a lot of griping. We moan pompously about aggrandizing titles. We trash found object sculpture. We fart on long-winded press releases. We deconstruct tedious professionalism. And of course, we liked a few shows. Read on to see what we have to say about Andy Coolquitt, Henry Taylor, Jeff Gibson, E.V.Day, and Kembra Pfahler.
