That was a fantastic Hantai show at Kasmin. I'm glad to be seeing the French post-war artists, greats like Hantai, and others associated with supports/surfaces a little bit more visible in NY lately. I appreciate Joe Fyfe's recent putting together of “Le Tableau” at Cheim & Read for the same reason. That stuff looks interesting and has an intellectual and imaginative spirit that's pertinent right now.

unfortunately i missed the big show at the main space... this photo was taken at a small group show at the smaller space around the corner.

yeah the fyfe tableau show was excellent.

I saw that little group show too, that was funny to stumble on. I remember they had a little Al Held piece in there as well, right?

Didn't get to see this show. But did get to see the other Hantai show at Paul Rodgers 9W gallery and it was amazing. I have been a fan of Hantai's painting since introduced to it at the Wexner Center exhibition As/Painting.
