Art in America: Judy Rifka At The Chocolate Factory

New York City, May 1, 2008

 

Lilly Wei reviews Judy Rifka's show "Nostos" at the Chocolate Factory in Long Island City:

 

"Judy Rifka's recent exhibition at the Chocolate Factory in Long Island City was her first solo show in the metropolitan area in over 6 years, and one wonders why this talented, volatile artist, associated with the artists' collective Colab and the freewheeling East Village/Lower East Side scene in the late '70s and 80's, has absented herself for so long. The show was titled "Nostos," which is apparently the ancient Greek root from which the word "nostalgia" is derived and means a return or homecoming as well as a species of fish - all of which is appropriate to Rifka's current project."
