Brian Dario, Liza Lacroix, Vladislav Markov reviewed in the November 2018 issue of Artforum

///The palette of this three-person show was dominated by brown hues: in the crude-oil-like sheen of paintings by Liza Lacroix, the grimy residues of sweaty hands and raw materials in sculptures by Brian Dario, and the delicate gradations of burnt umber to dark tan in an installation by Vladislav Markov. Materially, each work was in some way stained. The protective panels of suede in Dario’s Foam, 2018—a foot-and-a-half-high stack of eighteen single, used work gloves—looked rough, teased into a texture resembling sandpaper. Markov’s long sheets of old toilet paper, xC, 2017, which had been soaked in tar and gasoline, hung like a row of worn coats along one wall of the gallery. Though durable enough to withstand the artist’s process, the tissue was torn and puckered. Within this context, Lacroix’s works—Untitled, 2017, and Untitled, 2018—also seemed to be less “paintings” in the traditional sense than modifications of canvas as a textile. On the larger piece from 2017, thin brushstrokes and fingerprints feathered a border around the central block of a uniform, leathery color, which could have been some other viscous material.

Mikkel Carl interview now live on Artland

/// The artist, writer, and freelance curator Mikkel Carl has become somewhat of a brand on the contemporary art scene. With a BA in continental philosophy, it wasn’t in the cards, but as one of his recent works Pick a Card Any Card, 2018 reveals (upon purchase buyers will draw a gold-plated playing card at random), it is not obvious how life turns out. This is the story of a Danish multitasker and the accumulation of activities that ended up constituting a brand: Mikkel Carl. \\\

Mikkel Carl Brooklyn Magazine interview

///With a background in philosophy and a proclivity for the readymade, Mikkel Carl’s work epitomizes a transgenerational approach to the media. Much like the the originators of this type of found object work in Dada- and surrounding isms, Carl’s work comes with a strong message and intention of provoking thought in his viewers. Often described as having a certain grammar or syntax to it, his work consistently has a message to share with his audience. Through his installations, Carl elicits strong responses from his audience with the found objects central to his style. He engages with and provokes consideration, offering up a playful yet poignant point of view on current events and social trends.\\\

We’re not about a checklist with prices.” Instead of offering traditional exhibitions, the one-room, 400-square-foot industrial space, which opened this month, will let a different artist take over every six weeks to create an installation of his or her own uncompromised vision."
