this is the season of
"important" art auctions and
large scale shows.
through december 18, the two gagosian galleries
in chelsea exhibit massive shows:
robert rauschenberg on west 21st street
offers wonderful, varied work
while on west 24th street,
an extraordinary anselm kiefer
show - next year in jerusalem - is far too large
and potent to absorb in one visit.
i will be going back.
the show that stole my heart, though,
is brice marden at matthew marks.
these drawings and paintings,
make me swoon.
