At Art F City Whitney Kimball pans “Crossing Brooklyn,” the Brooklyn Museum’s survey of Brooklyn artists. “If you ran post-gentrification Brooklyn through an Auto Art Generator Machine, we now know the results would look like.

Karen Archey is covering Frieze London art fair via Instagram today.

And at Greg.org: “In honor of Frieze London, and all the awesome sales going down this week, I have created a special edition. Untitled (Tanya) is a black & white lasercopy printed on 11 x 8.5 in. paper. It is titled, dated, stamped, and numbered in an edition of 50. Untitled (Tanya) depicts at actual size Tanya, the photocopy work of Cady Noland, which is being sold at Christie’s contemporary day sale Thursday Friday morning. Purely for reference, the dimensions of that work (7 5/8 x 6 1/8 in.) are marked in pencil.” Only ten bucks! But sadly sold out. I hope he saved one for me.

Abstract Critical calls it quits. Long a critic of Provisional approaches to painting, the UK art blog announces that they are ceasing publication.

Everyone is gushing over Matisse’s cut outs at MoMA. Must see.
