Artist in Wonderland: Carsten Höller at the New Museum

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

WNYC

Giant mushrooms in the lobby. Pills that pop from the ceiling. And a sensory deprivation pool where museum-goers can float weightlessly in a body-temperature solution of salty water. Oh, and did I mention the 100-foot slide that runs from the fourth floor to the second? Carsten Höller's new exhibit "Experience" opens Wednesday at the New Museum.

Renegade Artists Get Museum Retrospective

Friday, September 23, 2011

On a spring night in 1971, a group of young artists from East Los Angeles spray-painted their names on the front of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).  They managed to slip away without getting caught.  But this was no routine tagging, this was an art action.  At the time there were no Mexican-American artists ...

The Gallerina Guide to Fall Openings in Chelsea

Friday, September 16, 2011

It is a season of cataclysms. And it's time to add another to the list: New York City's countless art galleries are now out of summer hibernation for the fall openings. That means the city will see itself deluged by an end-of-days storm of architectural eyewear, deconstructed designer clothing and incredibly cheap chardonnay.

To help ease your way through this veritable tornado of air kissing, we've teamed up with WNYC's digital guru John Keefe to create an incredibly handy downloadable map and mobile phone guide to the Chelsea fall art openings.

Get ready for art OVERLOAD. This week, the sleeping monster that is the art industry wakes up and comes roaring back to life all over the city: uptown, downtown, in the museums and in just about every nook and cranny where you could possibly hang a piece of found-object assemblage (a.k.a. trash sculpture). So put on your comfortable walking shoes and pack a flask. If this week doesn’t make your brain melt, then I don’t know what will.

Gallerina's Summer Art Round-Up

Thursday, August 18, 2011

WNYC

It’s the middle of August -- and that means all things artsy fartsy have come to a veritable standstill or, in some cases, migrated to the Hamptons, where they've gotten lost in a frothing vortex of white parties and Cristal. That does not mean, however, that there isn’t some serious art greatness to check out in the city. In lieu of my regular Must-See Arts datebook, here’s a guide to my favorite summer shows:
