Nasreen Mohamedi, ca. 1970, silver gelatin print, in Waiting Is a Part of Intense Living at the Met Breuer
Of course I was in NYC to see the Nasreen Mohamedi show at the Met Breuer. I was so elated and will write more about this fabulous exhibit and catalogue later, but I had never seen her photographs in person. So this was great!
Robert Gober, Slides of a Changing Painting, 1982, at the Met Breuer in Unfinished. One of my favorite works of Gober’s – over a period of a year Gober painted the same 11″ x 14″ board and took slides of the ongoing painting.
Robert Smithson, mirrors and shelly sand, 1969-70, in Unfinished at the Met Breuer
Yayoi Kusama, 1962, love this painting in the Met Breuer show Unfinished! Even though I know she is crazy – she is still alive and living in a mental institution in Japan – what a remarkable artist!
Renzo Piano is still my favorite architect. The New Whitney Museum – I love it, a wonderful place to look at art and look at New York (and New Jersey) from the balconies!
Liliana Porter, The Line, 1973, Photoetching with graphite pencil, at the Whitney Portraits exhibit. I never knew about this artist born in Argentina lives in New York – this kind of reminds me of Helena Almeida…
Rosalyn Drexler, Marilyn Pursued by Death, 1963, acrylic and paper collage on canvas, at the Whitney Portraits exhibition. I never knew about Drexler either, very cool, writes as well as makes very cool art.
Glenn Ligon, Self-Portrait, 1996, silk-screen ink on canvas, at the Whitney Portraits exhibiton
Robert Ryman, painting ca. 1965, at DIA Chelsea, a beautiful exhibit – it is hard to photograph white paintings
Toyo Ito, Sendai Mediaheque, 1996 – 2001, exhibit at MOMA The Japananese Constellation, I loved this show at MOMA! Great Japanese architecture and all his cohohorts in this exhibition.
Gego, 1966 , lithograph, I love this Venezuelan artist’s work!, at MOMA in the 1960 – 1969 exhibit
David Hammons, Pray for America, 1969, pigment and screenprint on paper, at MOMA in the 1960 – 1969 exhibit. I love this print and this artist. 1969 Yeah! and we still gotta pray!
Okay at the Guggenheim the best exhibit other than Mohamedi’s. Certainly the funniest and the best installation. Fischli and Weiss: How to Work Better. Dynamite!
Fischli and Weiss at the Guggenheim, ca. 1980
Fischli and Weiss at the Guggenheim, so funny!

AND …. our son Joseph Logan designed a beautiful catalogue for this exhibit:
Wonderful to see so much art. More on Nasreen Mohamedi soon.
