THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, THE NEW YORKER, NOVEMBER 24, 2014

THE LAST PICTURE SHOW: A sad occasion: one of Chelsea’s better small galleries is closing, further confirmation that the boom in contemporary art is not evenly distributed. This farewell show, resigned but not bitter, features some veteran artists, including a televisual collage by the Argentine Conceptualist Jaime Davidovich and some scribbles by the late Taylor Mead. But mostly it’s a valentine to the gallery’s thoughtful young artists, among them Nils Karsten, who makes surreal collages in the vein of Hannah Höch, and Nick Hornby (no relation to the author), a British sculptor who makes marble busts through digital means. On the back wall is a white-on-white picture by Daniel Levine, fading at the edges to reveal untreated canvas: the last painting.
