Junkies' Promises

From top clockwise: The entrance to the show; Deborah Kass's mindblowing neon "After Louise Bourgeois";  Dzine's Chandelier (and Dzine himself with Paul Kasmin on the back) and Alfredo Jaar neon

Ivan Navarro's works have made quite a few appearances in this blog lately.  He is a brilliant artist and an exceptional curator.  Yesterday, "Junkies Promises", curated by Ivan, opened at Paul Kasmin Gallery.  I chose my three favorite pieces and edited the rest, which was amazing too, but I needed to choose.  So if I could recommend any of the show's pieces to my clients or if I could have them myself, they would be: Deborah Kass's neon called "After Louise Bourgeois" which is large, colorful, extremely smart, well executed and impactful; Dzine's gigantic "glam" chandelier and Alfredo Jaar's neon "Teach Us to Outgrow Our Madness" whose message says enough about the life we live in our current times!
