Alex Gingrow / All the money IS in the label / Installation view / Mike Weiss Gallery
“…a show of primarily graphite and acrylic on paper works that satirize the art world using the visual language of gallery and museum wall labels. (Even her own gallerist doesn’t escape unscathed, though we’re not sure if that one is in the show.) It’s been a while since we’ve seen bitterness put to such productive, nicely-rendered use.” Read more.
Patrick Lundeen / Good For You Son / Installation view / Mike Weiss Gallery
“A mixture of idiosyncratic tackiness and low-brow PoMo folk art by Patrick Lundeen meets erudite references to popular music and childhood psychology in his exhibition ‘Good For You Son.’ Plus, the show will be paired with a performance by Lundeen’s slow synth blues band, ‘The Oblique Mystique.’” Read more.
Be sure to check out Patrick’s show which is listed in this month’s Art + Auction Magazine’s “Datebook” section!
Jan De Vliegher and Will Kurtz mentioned in ARTINFO article covering PULSE NY!
“Mike Weiss Gallery had to rehang its booth, replacing Jan De Vliegher Fragonard-esque “Happy Lovers” (which sold yesterday for $20,000) with a similar Rococo style piece by the artist. Gallerist Anna Ortt happily mentioned that the fair was raising excitement for de Vliegher’s gallery show, which opened Friday night. Meanwhile, at least three collectors are seriously considering buying Will Kurtz’s “Brighton Beach Bench” installation. “Everybody is mad for it!” Ortt said. Whoever buys is going to need a big living room”
