The New Yorker features How to Download a Boyfriend

Andrea K. Scott at the New Yorker highlights Badlands's How to Download a Boyfriend. She writes, "As with any good group show, the title only loosely connects to the art that’s on view—art works are not illustrations of ideas, although they can be ideas themselves. But the commercialized myth of romantic love does emerge as a theme (others are post-human bodies and doubling/coupling). One winning example: Catala and Lee contribute a rebus, relayed via photographs, that can be translated here as: “Eye, 1, 2, Meat, Ewe.” Pictures of two champagne flutes and two long-stemmed red roses add to the love-connection schmalz."
