Anton Kern Gallery
Neither when David Noonan does it, nor when Hempel does it.
The blown-up/ cut–out/ mounted figure doesn’t stand up.
Words like *style* & *fashion* and phrases like *good shopping* (but no sentences).
Sterling Ruby & Lucio Fontana
Andrea Rosen Gallery
Value not in weight, but in soreness.
So much touching, they made them with their hands.
Inside the ashtray/firepit/voodoo pillow, shards of other sculpture
from Pompeii or yesterday, continue to smolder
(and some are editions, while others are not).
Just in time for Halloween!
An honest equation: art as guessing game, press release as answer sheet.
(But!) K8 Hardy already did the heavy lifting, wearing a t–shirt and jeans.
Paula Cooper Gallery
You must see this exhibition.
Extended through November 12th at 534 W. 21st St.
An object’s weight is its primary virtue?
The casting of one material into another?
What’s new is we’re supposed to forget Serra?
The frame is freedom, mascara to the blink.
Non–imperative, negative instruction, reverse psychology,
with walls to interrupt your walking and shelves to interrupt your collection.
In the upper left hand corner is a pile of gallery.

Freedom isn’t free.
Blood on the tracks.
Paint handled like lipstick on lips you want to kiss.
Ida is Ida is Ida (to quote Gertrude Stein.)
Paint the wings of a dodo bird– I’m pleased to stay grounded.
Concrete poems, make up mosaic, make up blanket, make up night.
