Went to the Whitney Biennial - this year, it seemed there were less pieces, which gave me a feeling of openness - I always feel claustrophobic at the Whitney. But this time I didn't.
Last day is May 27, 2012...
And also last week, I went to the Radiator Arts Gallery's opening in LIC "Don't Worry What Happens Happens Mostly Without You". Performance artist, Marni Kotak, who recently gave birth to Baby Ajax as a live performance piece at Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn, was at the end of the gallery sitting in a wheelchair stamped with digital codes that you could scan with your phone to link to a story. Great!
I have been at Essex with Aimee for the oysters ($1 each!). But, haven't tried
the ceviche yet -but here is Aimee's description:
The lemon - limey sourness is well balanced by the ripe, juicy manjo. The fish is
so tender and the cilantro gives the ceviche a vibrant and zesty kick that wakes up your
senses! It's served with hand made chips - warm and crispy.
A great deal for $8.00.... Next time Aimee - we're getting the oysters and the ceviche!
Went to Soho this past week and happened upon Ryan McGinley's two shows at Team Gallery. I knew I was in for a treat and was ready to be impressed. The first show, Animals (at 83 Grand Street) comprised of studio portraits of nude models with live animals, possessed a real sense of humor, as well as something I can only describe as uncomfortable. I loved it!
The second show - Grids (at 47 Wooster)
was a completely different experience.
