Richard Kalina of The Brooklyn Rail reviews Mel Bochner’s exhibition “Strong Language,” on view at the Jewish Museum from 2 May 2014 until 21 September 2014.
Bochner’s work has always displayed admirable rigor and concision. He has never been afraid to tackle big issues, especially philosophical ones. He will do what it takes to get his ideas across, and has given himself the freedom to use whatever tools are at hand. –Richard Kalina
