Alejandro Diaz’s show at the Happy Lion in Chinatown was disappointing.  There were many people at the opening who seemed to enjoy it, but I felt that this is something that has been done before, and if you are going to do something unoriginal, atleast do it better than before.  Here, Diaz fails. The World’s Largest Cardboard Sign, really? The only original pieces were two bird cages in the corner, each with their own cardboard sign about losing their leases.  Cardboard signs are most definitely somet... [more]

If August were a litmus test for an art gallery it would distinguish between three types: the weak, who close shop; the dull, who dust off their golden oldies, and the tireless, who emerge to test ideas too experimental for any other time of the year. Like a late night scene at a nightclub, the far end of the tireless section is typically crowded with young people.

In New York, location is everything. It’s a city where neighborhoods in which commercial art galleries flourish are quickly gentrified, and the relationship between center and margin behaves more like a lawless traffic intersection rather than a two-way street. The Queens Museum of Art, located pretty much at the end of the line on the 7 train, is both literally and figuratively on the periphery.
