Gallery Crawl Feb 13 - Recap

Our February 13th gallery crawl began at Howard Greenberg Gallery on 57th Street, in the magnificent Fuller Building, itself a fine example of Art Deco architecture. We passed beneath the limestone frieze by sculptor… Continue

Review: ADAA The Art Show at Park Ave Armory, Feb 19-23

On Thursday, I had a couple of hours to dash through The Art Show of ADAA member galleries at the Park Avenue Armory. Given the amount of work on view, you do have to keep up a fast pace to see it all in that amount of time.

The overall mood of the dealers was perceptibly and understandably somber, and the show had far less exciting work to offer than usual. Some galleries had a big sticker next to a piece stating "ADAA Dealer's Choice." At first, I didn't know what this meant, but… Continue

who's your artist?

Think Picasso rocks? Think he's the most overrated artist of all time? Join the Times of London's poll to pick the 200 most influential visual artists of the era (lumping together modern with contemporary). Sattchi Gallery Online and the Times put together the polling list from user votes, narrowed to 500 -- so you can't put yourself in -- but the list is pretty interesting, from my… Continue

Ouch! It feels like I stepped on the 3rd rail

Way off track!

Can you picture this? Arrested for taking photos of the NYC subway, even though it's legal. Don't these guys have anything better to do? The camera-wielding perp knew his rights and it didn't seem to matter. Still, you might want to know your rights:

“I said,…

what we've all wanted to say...

Holland Cotter, in his story The Boom Is Over. Long Live the Art! (New York Times, Feb 12) tells us what we've known all along: the art market has been one big, self-serving, economic frenzy. He thinks the coming crash is going to help art (the content). I'll drink to that.

What do casinos, golf courses, and museums have in common?

Well, according to the Senate, they should all be banned from receiving any funds from the the economic recovery bill. Casino = museum? This is ridiculous.

Breaking News

Americans for the Arts reports that yesterday the U.S. Senate, during their consideration of the economic recovery bill, approved an egregious amendment offered by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) that… Continue

Review: Notes from the playing field

I confess: I know less than nothing about sports. In fact, my closest connection to any football field came last Thursday at Marlborough Gallery in Chelsea, where I went to see Jane Dickson's show Night Driving, an exhibition of about twenty recent oil paintings on astroturf. Yes, that's right. Astroturf. Think pointillism meets the playing field.… Continue

After reading Damon Krukowski's review in Art Forum of Brian Eno's latest venture in atmospheric composition, I rushed right over to the iPhone Apps store and bought my very own copy of Bloom. Bloom is an interactive compositional piece by Eno and Peter Chilvers made exclusively for the iPhone and iPod touch.

I've spent hours over the last two days creating and enjoying the recurring and "evolving" loops that you create by tapping… Continue
