When you visit the Print Center don't refrain from using the restroom. In fact, make a point of going there! The toilet seat has been sandblasted by Eric Avery and is sure to leave a lasting impression on you. Eric will have instructive wallpaper on how to use the male and female condom and there will be a roll of printed toilet paper as well. Those of you that have been following this blog will probably be familiar with Dr. Avery's work, one that straddles medicine and art. He will be here for the opening, Sharpie marker in tow, signing "prints" and photographs might also be taken. Models wanted.
Maira Kalman and Rick Meyerowitz, Newyorkistan, cover of The New Yorker, December 10, 2001.
Last night I attended the opening and gallery walkthrough of illustrator Maira Kalman's exhibition at the ICA. She is the author of the famous Newyorkistan cover for the New Yorker. The show was curated by Ingrid Schaffner, chief curator at the ICA, who collaborated with Kalman to achieve a beautiful balance of drawings and objects.
