An oasis of kicked-up color blooms in the Hill Country, focused in the Wild Beasts exhibition at Champion Contemporary. While New York City’s museums have, of late, treated “painterly” and “young” as extreme opposites — the recently closed video-imbued exhibitions by Cory Arcangel (Pro Tools at the Whitney) and Ryan Trecartin (Any Ever at PS1) come to mind — some of the city’s talent prove otherwise. After meeting Champion’s director Sonia Dutton this past March, Brooklyn-based painter Ryan Schneider (NAP #74) assembled a potent group of young artists reveling in color and canvas and undaunted by formalism. – Brian Fee, Austin Contributor
