The Sweet Science

A.J. Liebling's classic New Yorker pieces on the "sweet science of bruising" bring vividly to life the boxing world as it once was. It depicts the great events of boxing's American heyday: Sugar Ray Robinson's dramatic comeback, Rocky Marciano's rise to prominence, Joe Louis's unfortunate decline. Liebling never fails to find the human story behind the fight, and he evokes the atmosphere in the arena as distinctly as he does the goings-on in the ring--a combination that prompted Sports Illustrated to name The Sweet Science the best American sports book of all time.
 



















"Liebling was the most civilized man who ever put patent-leather pump to pavement and bloodied a friend's nose with tutorial intent. He was a boxing fan -- all humor and intelligent enthusiasm, with stabs of excruciating insight. He was a boxer of the white-collar fitness variety.  "The Sweet Science," he called it, or sometimes, "The Old Sweety." The reference is to the European tradition in which gentlemen were schooled in the "sciences" of sword, gun, and fistfighting. Fisticuffs, being the least lethal, was called "The Sweet Science." This volume consists of a series of essays that appeared in The New Yorker between June of 1951 and September of 1955."

Art ltd. magazine review

Amy Revier's "Wooly Head" video still

Review of my work and the exhibition "Death Of A Propane Salesman" in Art ltd. Magazine.
"Meehan's Benevolent Blackness is a giant black lace-covered piece of magma mounted atop a cleanly painted diamond of paint on the wall. Connected to it by strings is a bouquet of black butterfly-like flowers. Reminiscent of Lynda Benglis' Shape-Shifters, Meehan's Blackness makes that void palpable in ways at once playful and threatening. "

From here to Ear: Céleste Boursier-Mougenot and Ann Hamilton's Accountings.



Click here for Video 

"French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rhythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways.  For his installation in The Curve, Boursier-Mougenot created a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other musical instruments. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape."
