When I approached this piece for AFC I decided in advance to photograph how booths were set up and to look at the environment as opposed to the art. When I arrived all that changed. I ended up photographing some art as well as people I bumped into, and had some really funny interactions. Best of all, I bought a piece of art.

Time for round two of massive openings. After over a year, CANADA Gallery finally reopens in its new Broome street space, right across from P!. On Thursday night, Chelsea opens. On Friday night, something’s going down at the Redhook galleries, but we’re not sure what. And tomorrow, we hope Cleopatra’s doubles its benefit goals for artist, curator, and Dependent Fair founder Rose Marcus, to help her pay for major surgery–and so do many talented artists who’ve contributed to her benefit auction. All that, and more, after the jump!

“This fair isn’t about making money” (e)merge art fair co-owner Helen Allen told me last night. According to Allen, it’s more about building community, a point evident in the attendees. Walking through the halls of the Capital Skyline Hotel in Washington took several hours last night, as everyone seemed to know everyone. (e)merge is the definition of a community-based fair.

In an effort to cover more art before shows close, AFC decided to visit a handful of galleries and report what we saw. More than usual, I wanted to stay longer. Here are my notes from five shows at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, Mixed Greens, Paula Cooper, and Tanya Bonakdar.

After the slideshows of NADA, SEVEN, and Art Basel, we offer Pulse as a palette-cleanser.  The fair, featuring 90-odd galleries in Miami’s Ice Palace, wasn’t the best we’ve seen. Normally a little better photography at the fair is on view, so it’s a shame Pulse’s strength wasn’t better exhibited. Better luck next time I guess.

In New York, everybody delivers: bodegas, McDonalds, and, of course, RISD, with MFAs still warm from their thesis show. Mixed Greens has brought us some highlights from Providence, and while the resulting show is essentially themeless, it nonetheless unearths some real talent.

Date: THURSDAY, MAY 5TH 2011 – SATURDAY, JUNE 11TH 2011 Venue: Mixed Greens, 531 West 26th Street AFC’s Rating: 5/10 (Will Brand) Sometimes works are better without justification. Sonya Blesofsky’s current show of meticulously-sculpted paper architecture, at Mixed Greens, is a great example of this. Visually, it’s impressive; paper sculpture is trendy at the moment, but works like Window Study: Stanton […]
