Review: Easel Painting

A phenomenon I like: shows in Chelsea that reportedly had ended March 27 that were still open yesterday for my visit, such as Ilya Kabakov’s early 70s paintings (Sean Kelly 29th), Ashley Bickerton (Sonnabend 22nd), Thordis Adalsteinsdottir & Iva Gueorguiva (Stux 25th).

A phenomenon I don’t like: people who, on their blogs, lavish effusive praise on ‘must-see’ shows that have ended or are in the process of ending.
