The Comfort of Strangers curated by Cecilia Alemani at PS1

James Kalm peddles to Long Island City Queens on a warm summer weekend to view a curatorial project by Cecilia Alemani in the Rotating Gallery at the mega exhibition "Greater New York". Featuring works by Leslie Thornton, Judith Bernestein, Sylvia Sleigh and Jack Whitten "The Comfort of Strangers" presents pieces by mature artists who have worked consistently for decades despite escaping the recognition they deserve. Includes interviews with Leslie Thornton, and Judith Bernestein.

1969 at P.S. 1

James Kalm brings viewers along for a trip down memory lane. 1969 was a seminal year marking the end of the age of Aquarius and the depth of the quagmire in Vietnam. The art world was in revolt politically and aesthetically. Changes were coming fast and furiously. In hind sight many of these “radical” positions have become accepted and represent the current establishment. Still, this run-through allows us to appreciate the first dawnings of this new horizon of creative energy. Organized by Neville Wakefield, P.S. 1 Senior Curatorial Advisor; Michelle Elligott, MoMA Archivist; and Eva Respini, MoMA Associate Curator of Photography.
