Openings & Parties: Focus Paintings and XSTRACTION at The Hole

Ah, Spring. It brings bursts of color to the go-to blackness of New York, and forms shapes from the bundled layers. I say this both about the work in XSTRACTION and the crowd that gathered at The Hole. Holton Rower’s new paintings are deceptively great as well, drawing the viewer’s focus to the out-of-focus. Christos Katsiaouni was on autofocus to photograph it all.

Openings & Parties: The Whitney Museum’s Annual Art Party

This was a good party with nice art, drinks and babes, and the Whitney raised over $450,000 towards their independent study program. Win-win.
