The third in a series of exhibitions on Latin American modernism and its legacies, this show examines the early work of trailblazing Argentine artist Marta Minujín (b. 1943), tracing her trajectory from informalist painting and sculpture to performance.

Phyllida Barlow

Vincent Fecteau

is known for making small, bracingly private constructions out of foamcore and collage elements. As much as his inventions, through maquette-like scale and goofily specific found photos (of towels, toilet-paper holders), investigate the sculptural possibilities and erotic atmospherics of decor, the glue that holds Fecteau’s artless-seeming oeuvre together is a quirky querying of what art is and what it does—of how and why and if art differs from craft. (Bruce Hainley at Artforum is referring above to his work at greengrassi; the artist makes his own statements as well in the article).
