It’s been a while since I hit the galleries to see some shows…(winter and laziness), and  I had forgoten what an offering of great work is waiting for us on the west side. Most of the art I saw was seductive in one way or another – through use of materials, humour, scale and originality ( yes, that was a pianist
popping out of the “lid” and playing the piano backwards … Love it or hate it, that’s your call.  Here are a few shows that really excited the graphic designer in me and worth your time. Maybe you’ll shake off your overused “style” and start anew. 1. Gagosian – Manzoni (I recomend if you see this, you only see this..its quite a bit to take in and demands a well rested and a fully caffeinated observer) www.gagosian.com   2. Pace – Robert Irwin   (mesmerizing and serene) www.pacewildenstein.com    3. James Cohen – Simon Evans (fun, graphic and full on content, maybe you have to work a bit..but I left excited to make something) www.jamescohan.com    4. Matthew Marks – Ellsworth Kelly (classic) www.matthewmarks.com   5. Andrea Rosen – Andrea Zittel “show how problem solving and planning can result in a complex visual language.” www.andrearosengallery.com  

Great job! Now go trade in your culture for a cocktail
