Doubling Down: "Entanglement," at Regina Rex and ART BLOG ART BLOG


Detail view of Ryan Jones, Untitled, 2011. Contractors chalk on wall, dimensions variable, in "Entanglement," at Regina Rex, Ridgewood, Queens, New York, one half of a two-part show curated by Regina Rex, also on view at ART BLOG ART BLOG, New York, through July 9, 2011. Photos: 16 Miles [more]



Two galleries, one show: it's a rare spectacle and almost always a power play on the part of an artist, a dealer (or dealers), or both. Think of last year's Matthew Day Jackson double feature at Peter Blum's two New York branches or the recent transatlantic Gagosian doubleheader of John Chamberlain's mediocre, albeit awesome named, new sculptures. Often it signals hubris: Schnabel's 1981 outing at Castelli and Boone, for example, to say nothing of Salle's tripartite show, the following year, at Castelli and both Boone outlets. (A "three-gallery parlay," Peter Schjeldahl termed it at the time.) It is the territory of those whom Michael Lewis, in his Liar's Poker (1990), termed BSDs.

It's intriguing and refreshing, then, to see two of New York's youngest, scrappiest spaces mount just such a show. Through July, Chelsea's ART BLOG ART BLOG and Ridgewood's Regina Rex — both run out of artist studios — are presenting "Entanglement," a two-gallery group show that takes the notion of doubling literally, "exploring simultaneity, symmetry and seriality" at the same time that it doubles itself. (The 12-person group behind Regina Rex handled curatorial duties.) Each gallery contains almost identical pieces by the same ten artists. There's a radiant, bright blue chalk drawing by Ryan Jones on the walls of Regina Rex and another at ABAB. Slices of ledger paper with intricate pencil drawings of masks by Louise Despont hang in both locations, as do Anne-Lise Coste's monochromes, thickly slathered with black paint. And so on.

I went to the Regina Rex show on opening night, June 24, and visited ABAB the next day, which induced a gentle wave of déjà vu. "Haven't I been here before?" I thought. Yes and no. (But mostly no: ABAB's majestic views of the Manhattan skyline snap you into reality pretty quickly.) Describing such feelings in his 1919 essay "The Uncanny," Freud writes, "The 'double' has become a thing of terror." Thankfully, I felt little of that, beyond my normal background anxiety.

With perhaps the exception of Jones's lustrous circle — or, I should say, circles — none of the art quite withstands the exhibition's clever curatorial conceit. (That would take a lot.) But that's fine. In their short existences, both ABAB and Regina Rex have shown that they can exhibit new art at a relentless pace, hosting two- and three-week-long exhibitions that recall the schedules of a long-past New York art world. With "Entanglement," and its cannily repurposed blue-chip tactic, they're taking a surprising conceptual turn.
