moma atlantic/pacific

For a new ad campaign the MoMA has installed replicas of its most famous works at Brooklyn's Atlantic Avenue/ Pacific Street subway station. Every ad space in the two connected stations are covered with pieces by Picasso, Matisse, Hopper, Sherman and Dumas. Interesting that they chose a location so close to the Brooklyn Museum.

cy twombly

Cy Twombly will be eighty-one in April, but he is still turning out impressive and intelligent work. His newest series, "The Rose," consists of five panels, each twenty-four feet long, on which are painted "three open roses in bleeding shades of red, orange, yellow, or purple, with a curtain of dripping paint that gives them a dewy, life-like quality." The piece will be on view at Gagosian in London through May 9th.

julianne swartz

Julianne Swartz's sound piece at Josee Bienvenu Gallery is very well done. Using over a hundred speakers that "emit hums and hushed whispers, the piece emanates sounds reminiscent of stormy weather, blowing leaves or a gentle wind. " It is both soft and strong.

piero manzoni

Gagosian Gallery will present the first U.S. retrospective of the Italian artist Piero Manzoni. An original enfant terrible of Italian art, Manzoni is perhaps best known for such provocative pieces as Artist's Shit (Merda d'artista), Living Sculpture and Socle du Monde (Base of the World), which consisted of "a large iron plinth that he dedicated to Galileo and placed upside-down in a field in Herning, Denmark, thus rendering the entire globe as a work of sculpture."
