DAVID COHEN on A POINT IN SPACE IS A PLACE FOR AN ARGUMENT at David Zwirner 

The title of this sprawling 31 artist group show comes from Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosphicus, and is about as open to interpretation as that often cryptic thinker’s pronouncements. The very act of quoting Wittgenstein, in fact, identifies the unnamed curators of this show with a heady set of aspirations that characterized the artistic vanguard of the 1960s and ’70s.

STUDIO VISIT: LARA TAUBMAN visits Liz Cohen in Phoenix, Arizona

Yes, my relationship to the project has changed. In the beginning I think I fetishized the tools a lot more. I mean to me the tools are still beautiful, they are amazing objects. The photographs are a way to document the project, I see them as movie trailers that encapsulate every aspect of the project in one picture. So they also document where I am, where the car’s at and where it’s at in the shop.
