Liz Markus, at Zieher Smith.
Painting above is a glam memorial of old art magazine advertisements + glitter. Ads for shows with galleries like Pat Hearn and American Fine Arts; old shows for Polly Apfelbaum, Jonathan Borofsky, John Dogg, Richmond Burton, Meyer Vaisman.
I'm a geek for these new paintings that are portraits? homages? of different artists.
Charlie is right I was reeling around in front of the Double Rotten...
and I liked her Summer 2007 show at the previous space too.
RELAX with Joshua and Tisch Abelow.

Fawn Krieger, Ruin Value, at Soloway.
Ruin Value. had never heard of that.
"Embedded in the notion of buildings with high Ruin Value, of course, is that the very prospect of realizing is accompanied by the anticipation it will one day collapse, or simply fail and remain. Failing as an intentional built-in to realization is compelling to me." - Fawn Krieger
the individual pieces are being sold at $40 per pound after the first week... cash and carry ok... wonder what it will look like at the end of the month.
(makes me think about Liz Glynn's Rome piece for the New Museum show)
