Graduate-student types?

At the Voice, Leslie Camhi visits "This situation" and finds it to her liking.

(Hmmm, I do not dwell in the art world, but I am tempted if I find myself in the neighborhood to go and see Urs Fischer's hole in the ground!)


  1. For some truly unbelievable, alliteration-heavy writing inspired by this "situation" check out Jerry Saltz's column in New York magazine:

    Urs Fischer has reduced Gavin Brown's Enterprise to a hole in the ground, and it is one of the most splendid things to have happened in a New York gallery in a while. Experientially rich, buzzing with energy and entropy, crammed with chaos and contradiction, and topped off with the saga of subversion that is central both to the history of the empty-gallery-as-a-work-of-art but also to the Gavin Brown experience itself, this work is brimming with meaning and mojo.

  2. Reading the Camhi review I surmize that your yoga class may have stood you in good stead!
