Who says magazine journalism hasn’t elevated the discourse of the New York art scene? It was an article in Dazed and Confused (“Smile! It’s the Apocalypse,” published Winter 2008) focusing on the male, New York-based artists of her generation, that incited Agathe Snow to create an aggresive new body of work about the gendered meanings of order and disorder, and about sucking the life out of a community or a body of work by blowing too hard. Some of those works are on view currently in a show entitled “Terrestrial Forms,” at The Fireplace Project in East Hampton.
