Dennis Oppenheim review

My review of the recent temporary public-art exhibition of new work by Dennis Oppenheim has been published by the Brooklyn Rail. The work was deinstalled yesterday. I hope you were able to see it. Ace Gallery staged a miniretrospective in 2000 in its massive Hudson Street Street space, which was a real eye opener for someone like me who, until then, was only familiar with the artists late 1960s work. A lot of the work he does really makes me scratch my head, but his commitment to not creating an instantly recognizable body of work, unlike many of his peers, truly impresses me.
