Striking a Sexy Pose, Recalling Younger Days
by JOHN ROCKWELL for the New York Times

Tere O'Connor as curator paired Trajal Harrell with Karen Bernard. He explained himself by arguing that with both, the "singularity of their vision" allowed them "to create poetic connections between multiple layers of information." He somewhat undercut himself by identifying them as members of a group, but never mind.

Living by Fragments
An unlikely pair of artists share a program
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

Harrell's work was inspired by James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room. ... Harrell, who is black, has abstracted the concept of race in eerie, understated ways: Julie Alexander is wearing tan makeup, Anne Pinomaki-Ballantyne is in translucent whiteface (makeup and hair design by Carlos Villacres). But Harrell isn't concerned with narrative or in conveying that he, eyes closed, swaying to the tinny sound of violin music on a portable CD player, is remembering the tarted-up visions (costumes by Masala Browman) that periodically emerge from Erik Flatmo's gray fashion-show entrance and strut toward us, fixing us with that sullenly provocative stare.

Stalking down the postmodern runway
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice
published: January 30, 2007

Show girl, show man, fashion show, skin show, slideshow, showoff. Show, don't tell. The program for Trajal Harrell's Showpony lists these and more. But his version of puttin' on a show drapes a sardonic, quizzical cool over the exhibitionism of fashion runway struts, voguing in clubs, and stripteases.
