DAVID LANTOW

Full disclosure: I am a current grad student at Brooklyn College and David Lantow is an adjunct art instructor there. To the best of my knowledge, I’ve never run into him—myself being an art history major—yet there is something distinct about his work that reminds me of other artists associated with the school.

KEEGAN MCHARGUE

No doubt about it: young people love the word “meta.” Just like we Nineties folk used to apply the suffix “esque” to everything.

TOM BURCKHARDT

In honor of this week’s Art Book Fair at MOMA PS1, I thought I’d direct your attention to an artist who has done paintings on discarded book covers. A whole series, in fact. His name is Tom Burckhardt and my favorite of his is titled The Church at Home (see below). The painting transforms an old book...
