Paint Hotel @ Joe Sheftel Gallery

Man, if the power shift away from Chelsea hasn’t been clear yet, Joe Sheftel’s summer group show has Lewis Baltz and Sherrie Levine in it. Now, not the best Sherry Levine, a bunch of her reappropriations of paintings including Krazy Kat, and I am not entirely sure what is achieved by appropriating the authorship of someone that few actually know, the author of achieves, but whatcha gonna do? And I like Lewis Baltz, but who doesn’t see him as Robert Adams’s less interesting little brother? But still, some museum types appearing in a Lower East Side group show does seem to be part of a sea change.
