levin’s postcards


Everybody’s a critic, but not everybody is a professional critic, and very few are professional art critics. One of the best of the few is now the subject of an unusual and unusually interesting exhibition at Ronald Feldman Gallery in SoHo.

She is Kim Levin, who has been writing smart, clear, stylish, spiritually generous and politically urgent art criticism for The Village Voice and other publications for more than 25 years. Organized with the assistance of John Salvest, an artist interested in systems of accumulation, “Notes and Itineraries, 1976-2004” is a kind of career retrospective seen through the lens not of Ms. Levin’s published writings but of the tools of her trade: exhibition announcements, press releases and handwritten lists and notes that she has saved over the years.
