Michael Auping is one of the most significant curators of our generation. Through his exhibitions and writings, he has chronicled many of the leading artists of the last decades—often producing definitive treatments on artists from Lucian Freud, Georg Baselitz, and Anselm Kiefer to Frank Stella, Susan Rothenberg, and Bruce Nauman. Auping’s “secret sauce” is his ability to enter the minds and lives of artists, thus grasping not only the artwork itself but its conception, process, and facture. Adam Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director, Whitney Museum of American Art

Is any art that depicts a vivid sense of doom and gloom immediately relevant in 2017? Yes, if Robyn O’Neil’s current solo exhibition The Good Herd is any indication. Previously, the Los Angeles-based artist’s dark surrealism felt like an anachronism. Her drawings in exhibitions like 2011’s Hell were, at once, a throwback to Odilon Redon’s trippy drawings and Edward Gorey’s Goth wit.  Emily Colucci, “You Want It Darker: Robyn O’Neil’s ‘The Good Herd’ at Susan Inglett Gallery,” Art F City, February 23, 2017

My interest in horror is in its evolution and how it served as a salve or catalyst for society to deal with the fear of others. I’m not really interested in slasher films. A lot of my focus is on individuals who in the end are human. Margaret Meehan, “Q+A with Margaret Meehan,” by Rebecca Marino, Conflict of Interest, February 14, 2017

"Exuberance is beauty," William Blake said, and Luca Dellaverson's show is nothing if not exuberant.

His paintings abound with references to literary, artistic, and pop culture figures ranging from Robert Graves, Cady Noland and David Hammons to Jurassic Park references. . . .

Kerr goes deep into the biological and scientific definitions of fear, rather than dismissing the experience solely as an emotion. . . . “Every organism, from the fruit fly to the human, has a defense or threat response,” she reminds.
