Reviews In Brief, “And Yes, I Even Remember You”

Modern Painters, November, 2014

By David Morton

Human Resources director Eric Kim curates this show that investigates relations between history and memory. In works by Scott Benzel, Patricia Fernández, Hailey Loman, D’Ette Nogle, and Mungo Thompson, material culture acts as a conduit for collective memory. Thompson’s “Inclusion” series from 2014 – small sculptures comprising magazine pages suspended in Lucite – speaks to the way the past becomes inaccessible. Archaeological specimens, advertising logos, and editorial spreads become relics, making change perceivable but remaining impervious to it.
