American Dreamers @ Palazzo Strozzi
Sunday, May 27, 2012
Hi everyone, CS here. I visited the American Dreamers exhibition at Palazzo Strozzi the other day--so refreshing to see contemporary art in Florence! Great list of artists including more than a few familiar names (and some friends of Mixed Greens: Thomas Doyle's glass encased sculptures teeter off the edges of protruding shelves and Patrick Jacobs' curious landscapes are set behind tiny lenses in the wall.)
If you're in the neighborhood, come check it out! At the CCC Strozzina within Palazzo Strozzi, through July 15th.
ROB CARTER: FAITH IN A SEED
Wednesday, May 23, 2012If you guys haven't already been, head on over to ArtinGeneral for another extraordinarily green show by the work of Rob Carter! Titled Faith in A Seed, Rob Carter brings to us an exhibition that "lives between the gallery and the outside world, exposing the disproportionate relationship between food and shelter while highlighting man’s willingness to intervene in the natural order of the environment." - Art in General
CUCKOO FOR FATTA CUCKOO
Wednesday, May 23, 2012Check out New York Magazine this week and you'll find the LES restaurant Fatta Cuckoo (owned by our very own Leah Tinari) in the "where to drink now" article. Their Bacon And Eggs Cocktail received a beautiful full page picture titled "The Best Bet"! Way to go Leah!!!
Friday, May 18, 2012Thanks to Art 21's Nicole Caruth for writing such a fantastic review of Jenna Spevack's show at Mixed Greens AND Rob Carter's exhibition at Art in General. Both artists are making amazing work and we're thrilled to see them connected in print.

Best thing I've seen in a long time.

It's a meta kind of Thursday. You need to read this amazing Hyperallergic rundown of the fiasco between the Marc Jacobs SoHo store and a graffiti artist. Brilliant.
SHOUT OUT: Art/Work
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Artinfo did give a nice SHOUT OUT to Heather Bhandari & Jonathan Melber's Art/Work today in their list of "40 Books Every Artist Should Own, Part 1". So I was a little down on Artinfo.com earlier, but I'm back on board now.
Adding to the stereotype?

Artinfo has started presenting a feature that I find rather obnoxious. Every month or so, an artist is chosen to present a list of their "can't live withouts". Frankly, I feel alienated. And I'm left wondering if every other artist and artworld worker is too.
This month's feature focuses on the highly successful Mickalene Thomas. She lists her favorite book, a baby onesie (her partner's expecting), and her favorite smoked arugula and trout salad. So she reads, she's a soon-to-be mom, and she's a bit of a foodie. But it was her preference for "Rick Owens knits" and "Avantindietro Boots" that made me roll my eyes. Is this feature perpetuating the idea that artists, once they become successful, roll over to the dark side?? Micki Thomas is an artist I admire and, in fact, often refer to when talking about successful career paths in the contemporary art world. It saddens me to think that instead of reminiscing about her early days at the Studio Museum, this type of article makes me jealous of her shoes ("$1,700, at select retail outlets.")
For those of you who watch Girls out there, I have two words for you: Booth Jonathan.

Hi everyone, it's your resident blogger here. Just giving you a heads-up that I'll be on hiatus this summer. Where am I off to, exactly? See the above map. I'll be in the town of Amelia, a little town about an hour outside of Rome. And this is what I'll be up to. You can read more about it here.
Our summer interns will make sure the blog is lovingly maintained while I'm away. And perhaps from time to time I'll hop online and post a few pictures from my art-filled adventures!

Jenna Spevack's installation is underway. Furniture is placed, plants have arrived, and tiny tweaks are in-process.
Microgreens grow in bins situated within or underneath altered pieces of furniture.
Each setup is painstakingly positioned, some of the wood surfaces even have inlaid jewels--a reference to the fable of The Cock and the Jewel.
Join us tomorrow night for the opening of Jenna Spevack's Eight Extraordinary Greens at Mixed Greens!
