It’d be unprofessional of me to not mention the bevy of biennials, triennials, fairs, and fests taking place in New York at the moment. Especially considering two of our own galleries are in the Big Apple right now making us look good – represent! Here are a few of the highlights of all the action in New York. Also, to get your mind off the hour we’re losing with daylight savings time I’ve included a GIF of a skeleton sauntering like he’s the cock of the walk.
- Jerry Saltz wrote an interesting review of the Whitney Biennial for the new issue of New York. Sounds like understated is the new overstated. Read it here.
- Our hometown galleries, C. Emerson Fine Arts and Mindy Solomon galleries manned booths at SCOPE this week. Hyperllergic gave the fair a good review here, in the mean time giving CEFA an “extremely honorable mention”.
- The Independent, styling itself as a “temporary exhibition forum”, is back in Chelsea for its third time. Don’t get this confused with the Independent in Seminole Heights that styles itself as a “place to get beer and play darts” (quotes mine). Here’s the New York Times’ review of the fair.
- Had enough reading? Lastly, a slide show of what this year’s Armory Show had to offer. Flip through it here at the Daily Beast.
