SATURDAY | Screenings: Joseph Cornell at Anthology Film Archives


Lecture: Frances Stark on Robert Ryman at Dia:Chelsea
This is one intriguing pairing. Los Angeles’ great Frances Stark will discuss the work of Robert Ryman as part of Dia’s Artists on Artists lecture series. I would recommend buying your ticket ahead of time so you’re not waiting awkwardly in the standby line as your friends and enemies are lounging inside sipping beers from Brooklyn Brewery. It’s not a good feeling. —Andrew Russeth Read More

TUESDAY | Opening: Ruba Katrib vs. Elaine Lustig Cohen & Heman Chong: Correspondence(s) at P!


Opening: Ruba Katrib vs. “Elaine Lustig Cohen & Heman Chong: Correspondence(s)” at P!
Authorship takes the form of a chain letter, or perhaps a delicious, ever-expanding Mobius strip, in P!’s latest project. Let’s begin at the beginning: Heman Chong picked out sturdy, elegant abstract paintings by Elaine Lustig Cohen (whose 1967 Centered Rhyme is pictured), then Ms. Lustig Cohen commissioned Mr. Chong to create new paintings from his “Cover Versions” series. Their show together has been hanging at the gallery since early May, and it is stunning. (Meanwhile, P! brought Ms. Lustig Cohen’s work to NADA New York.) Now SculptureCenter’s curator, Ruba Katrib, will rehang the show, keeping the curatorial flow going. Does it have to end? —Andrew Russeth Read More

Book Launch: index A to Z at Karma
Choice selections from index magazine (1996–2006) have been compiled into what is no doubt a rich and handsome volume by Rizzoli. The tome includes “interviews with founders Peter Halley and Bob Nickas, a reminiscence by Bruce LaBruce, and a historical overview by Wendy Vogel.” Sounds like this will be one nice celebration. —Andrew Russeth Read More
