Dual @ Pool Art Fair

March 5th, 2011 • Paul H-O
If Facebook is Any Indication... DUAL - curated by Savannah Spirit. Artists include BTA, Chambliss Giobi, Max Langhurst, Christopher Lee, Tara Meisenheimer, John D. Monteith, Judy Rifka, Sadie Weis, Agnis Zotis, Frantic F Emme (performance) In the battle of the art fairs this weekend I wouldn't even dare to put odds on anything other than to say the Gershwin Hotel has a head start on eccentric. It is a genuine oddity and a throwback to another decade from the last century. In the location (7 E 27th St. NYC) just look for the red building with huge white horn shaped things protruding from the facade. In that is it's strength. Savannah Spirit has some very strong artists in her suites and it's looking very good as a hometown team. The Duel rooms were mobbed in one, and quiet in the other for the press preview but I'm sure that is changed by now.  As for Pool, it is all over the map. It's actually in some cases, astoundingly a free-for-all for any artist or rep that can come up with the $1600 to get a room. It's the anti Armory Show. There are some true believers and it just pulls on your heart. You may not like some of these unrepresented artists work at Pool, but there are some like Judy Rifka, Chris Lee, and John D. Monteith to name three that know what they're doing, and it looks mighty good against the dozens of other artist suites at Pool.
