PREVIEW U.S. SHORTS.
That other other final frontier was once upon a time charted by the French artist, writer, and visionary Henri Michaux, whose mescaline-inspired indexical tracing of the mind's wanderings will surely find thoughtful presentation in New York at the Drawing Center (Oct. 28-Dec. 20). And in collaboration with the Musee Jean Cocteau in Paris, the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh has put together "The Arts of Jean Cocteau," a comprehensive look at the work and archives of the pop-mystic, latter-day Rosicrucian and fellow explorer (Nov. 5, 2000-Jan. 28, 2001).
A few roots of the brave new conjunction of art and design will be unearthed in two exhibitions this fall. "Dreams and Disillusion: Karel Teige and the Czech Avant-Garde" at the Wolfsonian, Miami Beach (Nov. 16, 2000-Apr. 1, 2001), will include a First International architectopia; and "Endless Space: Frederick J. Kiesler," at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles (Oct. 4-Dec. 3), will feature Kiesler's pre-Constant "Endless House" project. Glen Seator and Bruce Mau plan an updated approach to our built environment in "Corridor," an installation linking the two MAKS through their airports, LAX and Schwechat (Dec. 13, 2000-Feb. 11, 2001). And Jorge Pardo will transform the Dia Center's first floor into a restful oasis of ultrachic design (Sept. 13, 2000-June 2001).
And yet, for all the boundaries to cross and windmills to charge, fine art's greatest (and latest) metaphor, painting, remains fertile terrain. The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art will investigate current practice in "Glee: Painting Now," to include Linda Besemer, Ingrid Calame, Monique Prieto, Peter Halley, and Albert Oehlen (Sept. 24, 2000-Jan. 7, 2001). Seventeen of the late Moira Dryer's large-scale abstract works dating from '89 to '92 will begin a four-venue tour at the Forum for Contemporary Art, Saint Louis (Sept. 8-Nov. 4). Organized by the Art Gallery of York University, Toronto, and curated by Gregory Salzman, the exhibition boasts a catalogue with contributions by Robert Storr, David Moos, Ross Bleckner, and Elizabeth Murray. And Lisa "Rembrandt" Yuskavage will be awarded her first solo museum exhibition for her stylish exploits of painterly daring, at the ICA Philadelphia from December 2, 2000 to February 4, 2001.
Other artists receiving first laurels this fall: Jeremy Blake at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from September 9 to November 5; Christian Jankowski at the Wadsworth Atheneum in his US debut from September 23, 2000 to January 7, 2001; and Uri Tzaig at Artists Space, New York, from September 9 to November 4.
