Best From NYC Contemporary Art

Steinkamp_temp

My first visit to the New Museum on the Bowery was a real disappointment.  There seem to be some curatorial deficiencies of the highest order….On a brighter note, one of the best pieces of art I’ve seen in a while is a series of video installations by LA artist Jennifer Steinkamp at Lehmann Maupin Gallery on West 26th street.  She creates incredibly complex, fake “natural” computer animations of mutating elements.  They are very well installed and breathtakingly complex.  They are best in person, but you can see a youtube fragment here and something from her website here. Enjoy.
