There’s no escaping New York. Ten minutes after arriving at Art Copenhagen on Sunday, we encountered our boss Paddy Johnson’s face in William Powhida’s “Cosmology” (2010), a zodiac chart dividing New York art world figures into destroyers, saints, and so forth, with captions describing their roles.
