Sat-ur-day


Juan Puntes, originally uploaded by valleygirl2005.

So now that the sublets have been squared, I can finally move on. During the week I met with my first ISCP guest critics Laura Hoptman, Senior Curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art and Gabrielle Giattino, Curator at the Swiss Institute. I’d now sighted most exhibitions, but was desperately trying to squeeze in a day for my last chance to see the Chelsea galleries before this bloody Christmas thing. Luckily about 50/50 were open, but at the second gallery – White Box, exhibiting Forecast by Mary Mattingly, I was virtually hijacked by Juan Puntes (who really just wanted a break). We spent the afternoon drinking and discussing various art topics before later being welcomed into a friend’s dinner with family. It was great fun. It seems much easier here, certainly in this instance, to meet and greet, exchange cards and establish some immediate rapport.
