The Fabio Viale "Stargate" exhibition at Sperone Westwater featured hyper-realistic, large scale common objects sculpted in fine marble. I like this work which showcases the mundane, and has a shifting dialogue between commonplace and sacred. The boat pictured here is functional and I loved the way it was set within this space. Russell was eager to see this newer gallery in the Bowery, which was designed by Norman Foster. I recommend stopping by and seeing this unique gallery next time you head over to the New Museum.
Revolutions by Michel de Broin struck me during our Montreal visit! It is a dynamic piece of public art, and “expresses a unique part of Montreal’s identity: the curved staircases of the Plateau and Mile End” claims Alexander Dunphy in his Public Art in Montreal article. I noticed a majority of the public artworks in Montreal were elevated on poles, probably due to the winter months full of snow, but with Revolutions it enhances perception of the piece appearing weightless.
