Top 10 New England Art Exhibits of 2010

Art – and art spaces — of all sizes
By GREG COOK  |  December 28, 2010


Perhaps what you noticed first about Charles LeDray's 25-year survey "workworkworkworkwork" — which was organized by Randi Hopkins at the Institute of Contemporary Art — was that the New York artist had managed to fill half the museum's galleries with doll-sized clothes. But his marvelously hand-tailored Lilliputian ensembles asked big, soulful, heartbreaking questions about whether men can still be protectors, fixers, and providers in Great Recession America. The ICA followed this up with another hit: the Wexner Center for the Arts' 10-year survey of the giant, brooding, urban-archæology collages of Los Angeles artist and MacArthur "genius" grant winner Mark Bradford.
