On the next SundayArts: Philippe de Montebello explores the Annenberg Impressionist Galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a look at the Museum of the American Indian's exhibition “Infinity of Nations,” the latest SundayArts News, and more.

The new play Red is to 20th Century Art what Colonial Williamsburg is to the Revolutionary War: a warm, fuzzy, simulacrum that makes a complex era accessible.  Instead of taking audiences inside an 18th Century Southern plantation, John Logan’s one-act play takes them inside the studio of Abstract Expressionist painter Mark Rothko.

My visit to the 2010 Whitney Biennial coincided with reading Don Delillo’s brief novel, Point Omega. Moving through the Biennial’s many galleries, I couldn’t stop thinking about the author’s descriptions of watching Douglas Gordon’s 24 Hour Psycho (the film Psycho slowed down to run over 24 hours) or the protagonist’s interactions with other gallery viewers, [...]

We should thank our lucky stars that Tim Burton (b. 1958) doesn’t seem to be a compulsive cleaner, otherwise we might not be able to see the wide range of his drawings and doodles—from recent to back when he was just a kid, predating the several years he spent at Disney—that are part of MOMA’s [...]

To be trapped in Soho in a hellish, multi-room environment that has been, or is, inhabited by mutants or delinquents—this might occur once in a blue moon, but twice in one week? Yup. (And I’m not talkin’ about Topshop.) Once at Here Arts Center, where Los Grumildos was on view last week, and again at [...]

One of the more fascinating developments in contemporary art over the past 10 or 15 has been rise of a new, far-flung class of artists from China, India, Latin America and the Middle East. Though obviously varied, these artists all use techniques borrowed from the Conceptual and Minimal Art which first emerged in the United [...]

If you think music—particularly pop and rock, but classical as well to a lesser extent—is just about sound and image doesn’t come into play, I have news for you. Everything involves image, and when performers try to look as plain as possible, well, that’s image too. I’m always amused by purists who claim that for [...]

I’ve always had a certain fondness for British conceptual artists Gilbert & George, now the objects of a show at the Brooklyn Museum; concurrently, Creative Time will screen two of their early films (1970′s A Portrait of the Artists As Young Men and 1972′s The Nature of Our Looking) on MTV’s huge HD screen in [...]

Martha Rosler’s concise show at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, Great Power, encapsulates the weird state of our country, facing extremes of peace and war, prosperity and poverty. The most powerful element confronts the visitor straight away: a Dance Dance Revolution machine sits across from the gallery’s entrance, which is accessed by a 25¢ turnstile. Take your [...]
