November artwalk

November artwalk

Mural at Locust by Ed Young. (btw, I’m debating whether to do these this way, or in the slideshow. But for now, you can click them to see bigger.)

Inside, a rockin’ installation site-specific sculpture* by L/B.

Adorable mini-art-fair at Spinello. Just to the left of guy’s head is Jen Stark’s piece (because why miss an opportunity to mention Jen Stark?).

I’ll tell you what — word got out about the Diet Gallery. Or maybe it was the heavenly neon sign outside, but the place was packed. And the art, it was good. Welcome DG! Anyway, here’s Andrew Mowbray.

I was a little taken aback and forgot to get this artist’s name. Anyone?? Abby Manock, who’s website is worth a visit.

The consistently stunning María José Arjona. (Actually, a better picture here.)

A few stills from Carlos Rigau aka Kenneth Cohen’s new video, which distills down all the man’s-head-on-boy’s-body stuff into a mind-bending 5 minutes. Nice work, sir! This is at the lovely show Erika curated at Tachmes, which consisted almost entirely of video and sculpture based on television sets (up through Basel).

And during which was produced this guitar cake.

* I give up: is it an installation or a sculpture? Is it site-specific?

    The work in question is most definetly a sculpture, as it is a three dimensional object.

    If the artist made it specifically for the “site” and it could not funcion elsewhere or specifically relates to the site, it could be site specific and a sculpture.

    I believe an installation consumes, creates and transforms an entire environment.

    I say its a sculpture.

    HI- its not site specific as the piece has been shown before… installation. L/B were going to add a site specific wall piece once the Pocket Stadium was up- but once it was in place we thought any other element would intefere.
    Thanks for the great pics and coverage!!!! Claire
