Exhibition and art fair reviews

The boldest, most challenging, and most socially relevant works at the fair were all produced by women. It was refreshing to see that contemporary dealers are closing the gap of representation equality, and that talent is surpassing maleness as the definitive criteria for contemporary gallery rosters.

We all know the criticisms. Overly commercial. Too conservative. Unrepresentative of what’s important about art. Superficial and pretentious crowd. And beyond all that, in photography specifically, there appears to be a predictable roster of blue-chip artists whose work is prominently featured in one booth after the other creating a déjà vu effect throughout the fair.
