    Hashimoto Contemporary: Jeremiah Jenkins - Everything Must Go

    Comment by AB: Awards for absurdities, capitalist lures, shattered ceramics, "Enough is Enough" bricks, and bronze free shoes on the street epitomize the topsy-turvy world of Jeremiah Jenkins. Seems like our day-to-day lives make sense, but Jenkins presents a compelling case to the contrary.

    Atelier Contakos and Gerald W. Cloud Rare Books: Didier Mutei - Acid = Life, Mapping Engraving in the USA.

    Comment by AB: Survey of work by Didier Mutei, aFrench artist, engraver, printer, publisher and book maker. For those of you keeping score at home, he runs the longest surviving printing atelier in France, founded in the 18th century. The star of the show is a work called The United States of Acid, envisioned by the artist as being run by history's greatest artists, thinkers, scholars and superheros. Uh... OK. Good art nevertheless.
