Oscar Murillo, A Mercantile Novel @ David Zwirner

Say what you want about Oscar Murillo’s meteoric rise from art school to big budget show at star-making David Zwirner. It’s easy to hate, but remember how many people the other star maker in Chelsea, Gagosian, has run through. Like anyone remembers that Tierney Gearon had a solo show there, huh? Bet you completely forgot that. And man, Murillo’s show comes with free chocolate marshmallow candies. Now, the exhibition is just a functioning candy factory that you can see only by peeking through the shelves or on three live streaming monitors. Like the show, the candies are only ok, but I am all for art that gives me candy.
