Reflected by Roy Lichtenstein at Mitchell-Innes & Nash in NYC. Now through October 30, 2010

Mitchell-Innes & Nash has a great collection of rarely shown Roy Lichtenstein paintings and sketches in an exhibit entitled “Reflected.”  I’d never seen any of these works in person and I enjoyed this show a lot.

@Roylichtenstein. Love your tweets!

The gallery is located at 534 West 26th Street in New York.  Don’t miss it!

Rashid Johnson - Time Flies

Mitchell-Innes and Nash in New York has a hot new exhibit called “Item,” and though the connotation of the word might make you think of ordinary items, this exhibit is filled with items that are extraordinary.  As you can see above in Rashid Johnson’s mixed media piece “Time Flies,” he has recreated a part of a bathroom with some special items in it such as a plant and an Al Green record (most likely to get you in the mood).  The exhibit features work from Erica Baum, Mel Borchner, Carol Bove, Mathew Cerletty, Liz Deschenes, Wayne Gonzales, Rashid Johnson, Giorgio Morandi, Allen Ruppersberg, Stephen Shore, Michael Smith and Roger White.  There are a few more awesome images from “Item” after the jump.  “Item” runs through August 13, 2010 at Mitchell-Innes and Nash located at 534 West 26th Street in New York.

landscape + object + animal by William Pope.L

landscape + object + animal by William Pope.L now at Mitchell-Innes and Nash in New York through June 19, 2010

You never know what to expect when you see an exhibit by American artist William Pope.L, and I think that part of the charm is to see what he’ll come up with next.  In the past, Pope.L has chained himself to the door of a Chase Bank with an 8-foot sausage and wore a skirt made out of dollar bills and a retrospective catalogue of his works was called “William Pope.L – The Friendliest Black Artist In America.” His latest exhibit “landscape + object + animal,” at Mitchell-Innes and Nash is not a departure from Pope.L’s artistic commentary on an ever present backwards world.  This mixed-media exhibit features animals smeared with peanut butter, ideas inscribed in mayonnaise, “negro ideas,” and live performances (check Mitchell-Innes and Nash’s website for details on when they will take place).  The exhibit is definitely worth checking out and it just might make you broaden your perspectives on racial prejudice.  Mitchell-Innes and Nash is located at 534 West 26th Street and this exhibit runs through June 19, 2010.

You can be the president, I'd rather be the pope.L
