Ben Meyer reviews the exhibition Considering the Provisional (through May 27, 2012) at FJORD, Philadelphia, featuring works by Amy Feldman, Annabelle Speer, Hannah Hall, Sarah Pater, Brendan Smith, Jenna Weiss, Hannah Tar, and Ryan McCartney.

Meyer writes: "Philadelphia co-curators Liam Holding and Sean Robert FitzGerald are taking a crack at identifying just what is provisional art, as it emerges organically and cohesively in the diverse work of several young artists… With this theoretical starting point one immediate question to the viewer of Considering the Provisional may be whether the artists at work really have enough depth to take on Rubinstein’s vision of 'the art of exhaustion.' However, the paintings in in the show are often energetic and exuberant. At a time when young artists often pursue expression in alternate visual media, those in this show are very committed to paint."
