ARTnews Review of Jane Benson’s “Song for Sebald” by John Chiaverina

LMAKgallery is very grateful for the recent review of Jane Benson‘s “Song for Sebald” written by John Chiaverina in ARTnews

“The visual side of “Song For Sebald” resembled a collage in reverse, highlighting the deconstructive nature of the process. The sliced-and-diced pages—one chapter per panel—were neatly clustered, with the occasional image making its way through the gutted text. It is a work defined by its modifications….Ultimately, the exhibition provided a few brief moments to disconnect from the confusing reality of New York City.” – Artnews, John Chiaverina, May 19, 2017
