Mostly Williamsburg Opener 2009

James Kalm braves intermittent drizzle on 9/11 to finish the last leg of New York’s 2009 season opener with a jog through Williamsburg. Beginning at Canada on Chrystie Street (the Lower East Side) “Spaced Out / On Time” is a brilliant premise for presenting a multi-generational grouping of work featuring Joan Brown, Chris Martin, Dona Nelson, Sadie Laska, Otis Houston Jr., Agatha Snow et. al. Crossing the East River we drop in for Jane Fine’s “Glad All Over” at Pierogi. Scurrying east we pop in for the three person show at Klaus Von Nichtssagend of David Gilbert, Ian Pedigo and Jessica Stockholder. We wrap-up this marathon with “Color, Time and Space” a show of abstract paintings curated by Joanne Freeman and Kim Uchiama at Janet Kurnatowski.
