1. JONATHAN MONK
Casey Kaplan
Through May 5
Jonathan Monk has established himself as the art-world equivalent of a tribute band—churning out catchy and, at times, transformative echoes of yesterday’s conceptual-art hits. To wit, he shows a mannequin of a bleeding, post-performance Chris Burden (who, for one 1971 video performance, had himself shot in the arm) and repurposes a Sol LeWitt open cube as a dressing room. The best piece, tucked away in the back room, turns Magritte’s iconic bowler hat into a laser pointer. But overall, this is the sort of work that looks great in group shows but doesn’t quite stand up as a solo effort.
