Twenty-five things to see, hear, watch, and read.
2. See Fire! Curated by de Pury de Pury
You can almost eat the dishes.
My old TV compadre, the inimitable Simon de Pury, and his brilliant wife, Michaela, have organized one of the hottest group shows around, at one of New York’s best galleries, Venus Over Manhattan—which is operated by my old nemesis Adam Lindemann.
This impeccable exhibition zeros in on ceramics, one of the fastest-growing media in contemporary art. We get the rough-sexy pots of Andrew Lord, soft-sexy ones by Young-Jae Lee, and the fabulous gigantic prehistoric ashtrays of Sterling Ruby. Please touch.
Venus Over Manhattan, through November 1.
