Swoon indoors and out

Street cred
Swoon is one of the most celebrated street artists in the US, so why does her wall of bugs and monsters inside the Institute of Contemporary Art feel so meh?

Autumn blossoms: Our 10 most anticipated art shows this fall

This season, the galleries are filled with light shows, monster rock and roll, and naked ladies
This fall is a season of celebrations and new beginnings as the Museum of Fine Arts opens its new contemporary art wing, the Institute of Contemporary Art turns 75, the Addison Gallery reopens after fixing its roof, and Brandeis's Rose Art Museum reopens after a mini renovation and settling a lawsuit by backing off from its threat to close for good.

Painting – and video – of the American landscape

Manifest destiny
"Painting the American Vision" — 45 rapturous paintings from the New York Historical Society — surveys the Hudson River School painters, dubbed for the upstate New York river where they spent their summers prospecting for sights to transform into ravishing canvases in their Manhattan studios each winter.

Alexander McQueen's 'Savage Beauty'

The late fashion designer's show at the Met defies demographics — and fashion itself
The two-hour wait is your first clue that "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (through August 7) is not your typical blockbuster exhibit.

Fair sculptures at Decordova

Eva Hesse at the ICA and Tory Fair at the deCordova

Women's work
Hesse's ability to imbue her art with body and blood and gravity anticipated the kinder, gentler minimalism of today's Anish Kapoor, Rachel Whiteread, and Roni Horn, as well as the fleshy fairy-tale figures of Kiki Smith. Boston sculptor Tory Fair has descended from Smith's family tree, with glossy resin or lumpy rubber casts of her own nude body uncannily sprouting vines and flowers.

mcc list

The MCC Awards at Tufts, 'Flourish' at MassArt, and 'The Cave Project'

Thinking locally
On the whole, I wish many of these 13 grant winners were more exciting. The art often feels conservative or academic. Even when the craft is impressive, the artists often seem to have little they care about and little to say.

Phoenix critic confesses all

Flushed
As the anniversary of the show approached, it seemed like the MFA might let this landmark in its history — and Boston art history — pass unnoted. So I stepped up as, let's say, a guest curator.
