Frieze NY - 2016

Early May is such a mixed-up time here in New York . We’ve shed the worst of the terrible winter, have been rewarded with sweet bursting of cherry blossoms and other flowering trees that introduce some organic color back into the dull brown and greys that we have endured since fall, and are patientl...

Re: The Armory Show - 2016 - NYC

CAP - I think at least in part you are right about desire to delve into those new markets to support or hedge. In addition to a few African galleries, there were many non-African galleries (Berlin, Paris, London) present featuring works by African artists. The discussions I had, and the chatter arou...

The Armory Show - 2016 - NYC

This year I intended to go to the Armory Show with muted expectations of the works themselves, and with more of an interest in attempting to get a feel for the current art market, and see and hear about this year’s focus - African Perspectives. I was still delighted and excited by much of the fantas...

Re: Spring/Break Art Show - NYC 2016

Thanks CAP!! I do have loads of images, and agree about wishing there was an easier way to show as well as tell.
That Hyperallergic review is excellent - I wish I wrote it!

Armory review and hopefully Volta are forthcoming in the next day or two...

Spring/Break Art Show - NYC 2016

Each year, one reason I look forward to what’s now known as Armory Week in New York, is that it marks the approaching end of another bleak and shitty New York winter. And even though this winter was vastly improved over the last two prior editions, and the packed subways never quite felt like the gh...

2015 Armory Show - Contemporary: An Overview

Those of us who have been suffering through another winter in New York are done with the imprisoning grey skies. Yet, remarkably, the air still has been leaking spring everywhere. The unlocking has begun, where the air has some moisture, the temperatures start wildly fluctuating, and one feels like ...

2015 Armory Show - Initial Dispatch: Press Conference Review

On a wet, sloppy, yet not horribly frigid, grey end-of winter morning, I headed down the long walk from the subway at 50th St. to the stretch of shambling industrial steel structures on Piers 92 and 94 at the Hudson River for the 2015 Armory Show. The first day was the VIP and Press initial day of t...

Cafe Grumpy's Demise in Grand Central? Let's Hope Not...

Grumpy's coffee is one of the better espresso and coffee houses in New York City, and have been at the forefront of third wave espresso in NYC, long before Blue Bottle and Stumptown forged their pathways in a reverse pioneer expedition from the west coast. The original Grumpy's shop has existed on a...

Smoky Earl Grey - Fortnum & Mason

By simple virtue (or vice) of being a yank, my tea credentials are admittedly limited. That being said, I have enjoyed the beverage and the ritual surrounding since I was young - my world-traveling father would bring home teas from all over, and we kept a nice collection in the house. Then I was rot...

Re: The Trip to Italy

Mostly agree with your assessment. I liked the first better as well. There was more depth, even if that depth was a bit more sad. But Brydon was great at times, even if the focus on him got a bit tedious. Clearly he was going through restlessness that he might have thought left behind in his settlin...

Re: The Demise of The DUMBO Arts Festival

Detroit is where it's at right now. dirt cheap housing, incentives to go there, and a building community.

Low in NYC at the Concert Hall (at the SFEC) - 3/20/13

The primary challenge for any band that trafficks in slower and more delicate songs is how to engage and create depth instead of getting lost in their own limited-dimensional weavings. The veteran “slo-core”/minimalist (and whatever other inadequate descriptor) band Low has continually solved this d...

Jay DeFeo at The Whitney

On a cold, grey, dirty end of February night, the Whitney was buzzing with a moderate crowd for the opening of the excellently curated, well-rounded Jay DeFeo retrospective at the Whitney Museum. When I arrived, the crowd in the lower reception area was in full swing, chattering away, eyes darting o...

Primrose & WTF Coffee Lab - Two Cafe Visions in Brooklyn

Over the past few weeks, I stopped into two recent cafe additions to the still-shifting Brooklyn neighborhoods of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill - Primrose and WTF Coffee Lab. However, a number of differences in texture, attitude, and sadly, espresso quality, divides these two. But despite the quality...

Dog Days is an excellent, terse, tense, disturbing and new opera, composed by David T. Little with libretto by Royce Vavrek, based on a short story by Judy Budnitz. The work was created for the Peak Performances series at Montclair State University in New Jersey, about 15-20 miles outside Manhattan....

DUMBO Arts Festival 2012

For another year, the DUMBO Arts Festival has taken over the formerly industrial, once artist infiltrated, and now professional/family haven beneath and around the Manhattan Bridge on the East River. Such is the current mixed state of the hood that now reflects and defines the annual DUMBO Arts Fest...

Van Leeuwen - Boerum Hill Brooklyn - New Mexico Mocha

Van Leeuwen is best known throughout the city as the operation dispensing haute ice cream and (attempted) well-crafted espresso via bright yellow trucks. But they also maintain two brick-and-mortar stores in Brooklyn, one in the increasingly hip Polish enclave of Greenpoint and one on the edge of th...

One of the premier readings/panel events at the 2012 Brooklyn Book Festival, consisted of "American Masters" Bernice L. McFadden, Joyce Carol Oates and Colson Whitehead. As expected, the primary draw was the literary star Joyce Carol Oates. The event took place within the cavernous confine...
