What Did I Miss-NEW YORK, Nov 7-10

Julia Sherman, THE DOCTOR AND THE SAILOR- part of the Recess performances @ Moma
Over the duration of the evening, the artist and one live model stage Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon


***********************
While Chelsea galleries are still fervently working on re-building, re-groupping and re-opening as soon as possible; the younger spaces at LES expressed their sympathy and showed a tiny little bit of a finger at the folks uptown by opening by the dozens this week. Despite the post storm- snow storm, New Yorkers found their way to the light of art and free drinks, after what seemed like a very dark and lonesome forever (10 days)

Pop Rally presents RECESS @Moma
"Eleven emerging artists "intervene" in MoMA's Painting and Sculpture Galleries with objects and performances created specifically for this night, engaging with the Museum's collection in new and unexpected ways" --- Now the m i n u t e you read that, you know it is not going to be new or unexpected. 


JOHN MISERENDINO - STALKING BALZACS
Miserendino has produced three roving remote-controlled copies of Auguste Rodin’s Monument to Balzac, the sculpture that has been an iconic presence in MoMA’s main lobby since its 2004 reopening.

 


A.K. BURNS and KATHERINE HUBBARD POETRY PARADE FOR A PERMANENT COLLECTION
In this “migratory feminist reading action,” 12 people read (more like stammer) specific texts in front of chosen works. 

Corin Hewitt and Molly Mc Fadden - The Artist Look Book Tour
VCUarts Art Education instructor, Molly McFadden and Sculpture professor Corin Hewitt lead a tour examining the personal style and wardrobe of a selection of artists in MoMA’s collection. Choosing to comment (predictably) the classics: Dali, Warhol, Beuys, Duchamp,  Bourgeois, but also more edgy choises like Cy Twombly, Hanne Darboven, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Vavara Stepanova and the pre-hipster look of David Hockney (Mc Fadden's favorite).  This quite well thought out and funny tour was the highlight of the evening, if not for everything else but for this picture of baby-grandpa Picasso in shorts and leather sandals. He rocks the look!
