Review of Geoffrey Farmer at Casey Kaplan, New York

My review of Geoffrey Farmer‘s first US solo show (no, seriously, it’s the first one) is now up on Canadian Art‘s website. It was a difficult show to summarize given the sheer number of materials being used and all of the incredible figures and objects at play (I think a characteristic common to many of Farmer’s works), but it is worth a look if you’re in New York over the next few days. It seems a promising start to Farmer’s US presence, especially given the glowing reviews he’s received from the locals. I do wish that he’d be given the flexibility to do a long-term project that changes over the course of the exhibition, which have been my favourite of his past projects (Catriona Jeffries Catriona, 2001, remains his all-time best, in my books), but that’s not always possible when you’re multi-tasking.
