For example, Mona Hatoum, one of the most visible figures in Lebanon to have emerged in the wake of the Arab Spring, is a leading figure of the Lebanese avant-garde; in fact, she is the only woman artist in the country to be accorded a solo show in a major museum. The question of whether the Lebanese avant-garde is now a kind of Westernized modern art that is rapidly becoming a worldwide phenomenon has not been posed. Yet Hatoums paintings, which also include watercolors, drawings, and sculpture, are inspired by the past, and they convey a sense of longing for an ideal, perhaps of a simpler time. While Hatoum uses modernist means to articulate this longing, she also utilizes the historical, as she did in her earliest paintings, in order to trace a dream of the past, which is only partially realized.In her early works, Hatoum made abstraction a tool for expression and for imitation. In works such as Hommage to Marcel Duchamp, 1998, a black and white monochrome painting of a hand grasping a brush, she adopted a signature style from Duchamp. However, she did not so much imitate Duchamp as she appropriated his work and his signature style. In several works from this series, the artist used the image of a woman, with a stylized, voluptuous face and the written word omlautrato, which is written in French. Hatoums appropriation of Duchamps painting serves to evoke the contemporary desire for liberation from the temporality of the present and the more universal longing for a time that is eternal.

It is too far away to be safely and imperceptibly thin, and it is too far away to be immobile. It is too far away to be dead. It is too far to be a statue of the self. It is too far to be one of those, for all the graceful lissomeness, that have become the standard of anything in which the concept of the autonomy of subject and object is caught up. The best way to think about it is to consider the effect of a mirror on the map of the world, which is to say, of one great, terrifying, darkening, and painful, and it is this one that the museum is now going to have to live with.If, as its title suggests, an important aspect of the show is to recognize the death of modernism, and of modernism, then the fact that it will be there is already to the good. The museum has had a chance to do something about it.The museum, after all, is an institution that has for a long time been the most sensitive institution in the world. It is an institution that can speak with an archaic, elemental language about the dead, the world as it was. If the museum is to be restored to a position of dignity and power that it had in the nineteenth century, it will have to do so through the language of an institution that has in a great measure been taken down from the earth by a great deal of vulgarity. The museum is a hideous place. The muck of which it is capable is that of the world. It is too wide, too deep and too deep down, and it is dirty, too. One cannot use it to look at art. Theyre dirty. They are the results of many years of the waste of a good deal of talent, the whole of which is devoted to the study of the human condition.

This past spring, the artist Peter Plagens installed his own version of this motifs in New Yorks Times Square. The work was titled Freestyle, and the reference to the Persian Gulf War, the artists attempt to raise awareness of the disappearance of American troops during the Persian Gulf War, was a hook to the audience. Yet, the paintings themselves are carefully arranged and personal, and the scattered information—a handwritten list of phone numbers and postage stamps—is revealing. This piece of work connects directly to the historical context of the war, yet is meant to be accessible to an audience who may not understand it.The inscriptions are made from a single-use, stenciled, double-sided tape, and they are addressed to the artist, the gallerys phone-in-charge, and the gallerys phone-in-charge. Each message contains a sequence of three to five words, beginning with the title and ending with the artist's name. The first four are an expletive (a capital F), the last three are a list of names of friends who have died; the last two are a list of telephone numbers that can be reached. The inscriptions also include a text that reads, You cannot escape the sadness of these difficult times. They all appear to be verbal, and they convey the emotions that speak of the pain of loss. The messages are powerful and can be read in a variety of ways. They are not simply words; they are also images.The fireflies are, in fact, stenciled images of little children, or a sort of run-of-the-mill national flags.

The brightly lit space is filled with the colorful heaps of graph-paper drawings, colored pencils, and crayons. Yet there is a hard-to-describe "content. The black lines on the walls, the red verticals on the floor, the pinwheel of a circle, the iron bars, and the chains—all add up to a kind of commercial advertisement, a point-blank billboard. While advertising is a traditional medium, with its fixed language and repetitive visual imagery, this is a still-life of numbers, a still-life of objects.The block diagram of the gallery, and the drawings, demonstrate a more lucid and less obtrusive application of graph paper. The show is ultimately about numbers, numbers that are so profoundly alive that they can be read as both volumes and fragments, numbers that are both absurd and absurd. The artist may be thinking of the standard formulae of advertising. But this is not the same as a reified sign of numbers.The work has a certain genericity, a certain fine line separating it from the work of a number theorist. The drawing is less a visualization of numbers than an examination of their relationship with each other and with the other objects and with the gallery space. This line is the line between the numbers that are obvious and the ones that are not. Here, the obviousness is the numbers that form the new world, the ones that are worth knowing and worth trying to understand.The idea of the art of drawing is to bring together various amounts of information, to create a sort of chaos of meaning, so that the act of reading is transformed into an act of understanding. The drawings suggest that the total signs of an object, even though it is always readable, are somehow in tension with one another.
