"Lots of Things" show worth catching
Dave Eggers ("What is the What" author and Salon.com writer) shows off his artistic side with "Lots of Things Like This," a show he curated for the apexart gallery.
The collection, comprised of more than 100 works by nearly as many artists, boasts three common elements: an image, some words and a sense of humor. Think Magritte's "Ceci n'est pas une pipe," but with more modern artists (Leonard Cohen, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Paul Hornschemeier among them). Some works are offensive and some look just like doodles on napkins but all are meant to have you chuckling. Lots to take in.
"Lots of Things Like This" runs through May 10. Check out Friday's amNewYork for Scott A. Rosenberg's extended review of the show.
