My latest exhibition got mentioned in an article by Michael Wilson on artforum.com… and I got a personal shout out AND a photo!!
First up was NURTUREart (“our name is our mission”), which relocated from Williamsburg to its current home on Bogart Street a few months ago. Second was English Kills, which has occupied a Forrest Street basement since 2007. Friday, both were launching scrappily entertaining group shows and attracting a more characteristically local clientele. “Systemic Risk” at NURTUREart was the busier of the two, with Risa Puno’s maze-game installation Good Faith & Fair Dealing providing a playful, playable focus. The unveiling of “The Permanent Collection Volume 2: My Own Private Serpico” at English Kills was a quieter affair, but refreshingly so, with a friendly, familial vibe. Where the night’s main event was driven by hype and spectacle, these folk kept things cool.
