Blue Door Opens New Artistic Worlds

by Lucy Gellman | May 19, 2015 3:34 pm

Victor Agran Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s winding and cavernous Carceri, reimagined and rendered in bright watercolor for the year 2015. The late New Haven Coliseum, captured gracefully in stages of its demolition. Floating, torso-less anuses blooming into dahlias. A fantasy plane of strings and one blown-up, unattached molar, suspended in a universe that is not quite of this world or the next.

Welcome To The Roast, Population: Andy

by C.A. Nolte | May 4, 2015 8:00 am | Comments (1)

C.A. Nolte Photo Before he was roasted, Andy Sharpe stepped out of Joker’s Wild Comedy Club on Wooster Street for a cigarette. The interior of the club was dim, amber light filling the space everywhere except for the stage, where the spot light rested on an empty podium. Two rows of armless chairs lined the stage to the left, where the roasters would sit. A wicker chair with cushioned footstool, looking like a castoff from the set of Golden Girls, was positioned between the stage and the roasters’ bleachers. A few people milled about, ordering drinks.
