So the Missus and I trundled down to the city yesterday (monumental traffic jam on the Cross Bronx Expressway) and here’s some of what we saw (sorry no visuals or links – we’re iPadlocked):
The Forum Gallery’s current exhibit, The Figure in Modern Sculpture, features works by Alexander Archipenko, Chaim Gross, Gaston Lachaise, Jacques Lipchitz, Elie Nadelman, and John Storrs. And it’s an absolute knockout. (Through June 23.)
CLAES OLDENBERG IS FOREVER YOUNG
Pace Gallery has a lively show of Claes Oldenberg’s works on paper. At 83, he’s still living and working in New York. And his work still works.
OTHER DESERT CITIES WAS A TASTY DESSERT
The Tonys will tell if it’s “the best play on Broadway (Ben Brantley, New York Times)” but it’ll do until something better comes along. Stockard Channing, Stacy Keach, Judith Light, Elizabeth Marvel, Thomas Sadoski – all marvelous.
See more tomorrow.
