Generated summary (experimental)

The New York Academy of Art
Art Review Ai Weiwei "Laundromat" at Deitch Projects
The Ai Weiwei show ‘Laundromat’ is located just above Canal
on Grand Street, across the street from Soho Art Supply.
But this first impression is
shattered after noticing the revolutionary brand of Ai Weiwei above the
Upon entering the smell of fabric softener hits my sinuses,
my eyes go watery and I am immediately engulfed in a forest of clothing
The visitors to the
space were unknowingly replicating their normal phone worship, walking around
with their heads down and eyes plastered to the floor reading the tweets that
people blindly post on social media.
The most terrifying truth that I was faced with manifested
itself in the form of a projected video in the corner of the room.
It was like watching flies come and go
to a dead rotting corpse with functioning arms that slowly drag it along,
climbing over rocks and through jungle, leaking out behind it a trail of brown
liquid that only attract more flies to its location.
I left the show in the same way I came in, watery eyes and
bad taste in my mouth.
Art Review Marilyn Minter "Pretty/Dirty" at the Brooklyn Museum
by Stephanie Del Carpio MFA 2017
Marilyn Minter’s first
retrospective exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum is so much more than skin deep
The woman in the photos is smeared in layers of makeup
and with a vacant stare she reminds us that we may all be sharing those
feelings someday, as we gaze at our aging selves in the mirror.
Coral Ridge Towers (Mom in Negligee) , 1969 Coral Ridge Towers (Mom making up) , 1969The large scale paintings Little
Girls and Big Girls focus on the female body and the male gaze.
In Little Girls , Minter is showing us the symbolic
version of these ladies as children, in all their youth and innocence; unaware
of their future objectification.
Big Girls , enamel on canvas, 1986In later works, such as Clip and Dirty Heel , Minter confronts her audience with massive depictions of
beautification tools, magnified for greater effect.
Bisecting the galleries, there is
a narrow hallway with a large vitrine, showing old sketches, preliminary
studies, and collaged photo references for future works.
Vitrines with sketches and studiesIn the age before Photoshop, these give us a glimpse into the planning and production of her
large scale close-ups.
My gratitude towards Academy for offering me the privilege to undertake this endeavor in endless.
Thank you so much for being so loving and supportive!
