Diana Thater: Between Science and Magic

Diana Thater: Between Science and Magic was a spring exhibition in Santa Monica and New York.

The catalog blurbĀ (Ram, Amazon; $30, cloth) invokes Levi-Strauss: “… art lies half-way between scientific knowledge and mythical or magical thought.” From the catalog, Helen Varola, “Pulling a Rabbit Out of a Hat,” [PDF] is online at the Santa Monica Museum.

A review by David Pagel prompted a response from Thater (and lengthy comment thread), followed by further comments from Regina Hackett. Jonathan T.D. Neil also reviewed. More information at the artist’s website, David Zwirner, Hauser & Wirth, and 1301PE.
