I spent some time walking around Chelsea Saturday afternoon checking out a couple art exhibits. I only made it through a couple blocks (29th Street – 26th Street) before I had to call it a day. While not even going through probably half the openings I didn’t really come across a ton of art that was memorable. There was one exhibit that I did find sort of amusing in a self referential way. Andy Freeberg had a series titled Sentry. He’s taken photos of a number of gallery spaces where people work. Between the tops of people’s heads to the flowers on the tops of desks, seeing a series of these types of images shows the similarities and differences of a space most people ignore. You can view them yourself at Danziger Projects 521 West 26th Street (NY).
That night I went to the opening from Daniel Rozin’s Fabrication at bitforms. Combining a mirror like technology with metal and wood there’s a lot to admire – the experience of seeing yourself reflected in a non traditional material, looking behind to see all the wires connecting to circuit boards and listening to the gears make movement is quite compelling. Bitforms in NY is located at 529 west 20th street.
