A few galleries
We had time to kill between shopping and a movie so we ambled up to Chelsea and stuck our head in a few galleries. This time of the year, in the heat of the summer, most galleries have group shows in July and close it down for August. So the shows were mixed.
We popped our head into Matthew Marks Gallery to see the Andreas Gursky exhibit. that was really great. Large scale photographs that he made over the past 3 years. Landscapes, interior pictures of offices, a car racing pit stop, cheerleaders and one of a crumbling wall. Each photo is intense not only from the size but the intricacy of each detail that the visual eye can see.
We also walked by Bellwether which had an exhibit of Brazilian artists. There was one piece which just made me laugh. A large white piece of paper above. As a whole, the galleries weren’t that interesting.
If you are thinking of making a trip to Chelsea, wait for fall.
