REVIEW: "You Promised Me, and You Said a Lie to Me" @ Anna Schwartz Gallery

Nov 5, 2013 7:46AM

“You Promised Me, and You Said a Lie to Me,” at Sydney’s Anna Schwartz Gallery, is the latest exhibition coordinated by rising curator Alexie Glass-Kantor, who recently landed in Sydney from Melbourne as Artspace Visual Arts Centre’s new executive director. For this exhibition—which features works by Susan Jacobs, Heman Chong, Laurent Grasso, Jesse Jones, Jane and Louise Wilson, Ming Wong, and Haegue Yang—Glass-Kantor was inspired by a line from an eighteenth century Irish ballad whose provenance is said to reach back to the eight century and the result is a rather dense and obscure undertaking.
