Barkley L. Hendricks, Heart Hands Eyes Mind @ Jack Shainman Gallery

So apparently Jack Shainman has a second Chelsea location. Hmm. I mean, Gagosian, David Zwirner, Matthew Marks okay, but Jack Shainman?  I didn’t really see Shainman in the same league, but apparently they’ve not only opened a second Chelsea location, which will be their “project space, where artist can try out new work,” but purchased a School House upstate near Bard to house their permanent collection and operate as summer gallery! With the state of things, maybe it’s just the time to get more real estate? Or they’re running a post-Katrina-like real-estate scam like on Treme? So as the weak are falling and the strong are feeding on their corpses, it should be fun to see who was smart and who over extended. Oh, and they had more work up from Hendricks.

Through Apr. 6th
