Virginia Poundstone has a great show at Harris Lieberman in New York right now. I reviewed her show, and she provided some picks for things to see and do over the next few months:
The title of Virginia Poundstone’s New York solo debut, “Illiquid,” refers to commodities not easily sold for cash. Petroleum is a classically liquid asset, while art is decidedly illiquid, worthless until a buyer decides to believe in it, a risky truth to relay to collectors in this post-boom time. From a formal viewpoint, her title is almost equally dubious, as four of the exhibition's five components seem nearly fluid, ready to melt away or evaporate.
