Detail of a canvas by Conor Harrington. (All photos by C-M.)
Last night was the preview extravaganza of London’s Lazarides Gallery street artsy show in downtown Manhattan. And everything was in (stereo)typical working order: Nice canvases hung in a “gritty” urban setting? Check. Line of attractive hipsters stretching around the corner? Check. DJ pumping beats? Check. Galleristas handing out price lists? Check. (And whoa, nelly what a price list! The Faile piece was going for $150K!! Which means I’ll be able to afford it sometime… never.) The naked commerce was good fun, but so was the art (there are interesting pieces by Conor Harrington, Bast, David Choe and Blu). So get over there (282 Bowery at Houston) before the encampment leaves town on Oct. 12th.
