Kiki Smith & Giuseppe Penone

Doing my daily blogstroll, I stopped at Modern Art Notes where Tyler Green writes that unlike in the past, “this month’s ArtForum is pretty much a must-read”.

There, my eye was caught by Kiki Smith’s name and because I’d written about her printmaking work a while ago, I was intrigued to find a review of her show at MOMA by Carol Armstrong.

Armstrong also writes in the same article about Giuseppe Penone’s huge drawings at the Drawing Center. It’s a rather unusual and interestingly subjective account of her reactions to each artist’s works.

Giuseppe Penone is an Italian sculptor new to me; if you want to learn more about him, check out the Drawing Center’s press release, his catalogues and short reviews with an image here and here.
