All in all, this release continues the Juxtaposition
series' strong lineup and is recommended for those interested in contemporary music.
series is dedicated to exploring contemporary music through the marriage of film and music.
Ando's stark monochrome spaces draw their disturbing power from their masterly juxtaposition
With dutiful nods to "brainy" stuff (is there another reason John Baldessari and neo-Conceptualist phony Lucy McKenzie are in the show?), Ferguson likes representational, somewhat dreamy, touchy-feely paintings, but fails a) to argue why these fey daubings and not others, and b) to make a coherent lineage out of his otherwise weakly formal juxtapositions
Some of the juxtapositions
were rather prosaic, for instance that of a life-size white fiberglass donkey, an ancient symbol of randiness, with the phallic plastic vegetables that adorn the large wheels suspending the neon lights in several of the niches.
It's in these juxtapositions
that the awkwardness of looking at the "Patti Smith" series in 2004 arises.
Instead, we found sometimes baffling juxtapositions
, like that of Beuys's Richtkrafte (Directional Forces), 1974-77, a blackboard installation, with paintings by Neo Rauch and Beat Streuli's blandly literal mural-size photo installation of people on the streets of Athens.
In a set of five collages entitled "Rrose Selavy, mesmo" (Rrose Selavy, Even), 1997-2000, Duchamp's portrait in drag is superimposed on pages from newspapers in various languages, creating accidental juxtapositions
of images and texts in which the French artist's photograph serves as a camouflage printed over political reports.
I had first seen Rosenquist's work at Leo Castelli's gallery in 1966 and thought that his huge works like F-III, with their unlikely juxtapositions
of images, took a very different approach to painting.
Here were many juxtapositions
of photos and texts, photos and photos, texts and texts, texts and heroin wrappers (the latter artfully arrayed 5 la Richard Tuttle), as well as related objects, e.g., Untitled (Severed head of 'Vincent' from Teenage Caveman), 2001.
In this realm of "pure" abstraction, the debt to Kelly's color/form juxtapositions
looms especially large.
