I am not an art critic. That’s why you don’t find negative reviews on this blog. You can decide for yourself what you hate. I want to tell you what I like and why.
Today I want to talk about a show you can’t go see. Seven of my fellow students and friends have just installed an exhibition in a private space in Chelsea. I watched them make this art in our joint studios and I wish it, and them, the best.
I also want to congratulate the company Tracx (which I think is a social networking data mining software company). http://www.tracx.com/news/exhibition-scientists-and-artists-unite. They have chosen to use their working offices as gallery space, and this show is the first of what they foresee to be three new installations a year. It’s good for their employees and clients to work with provocative art. It’s good for the artists to be seen by new eyes.
I wish other companies would do the same. Art in galleries is great, but there isn’t room in the galleries for everybody. There need to be other options.
Maybe if you call Tracx (646) 448-5310 they will invite you to come up and look at the art. I honestly don’t know. But this art is worth seeing. (104 W 27th).
