Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
The art world literally evaporates in August, with nary a gallery person or client to be found. After taking a little break from things myself, in September I returned to New York, where energy was coursing through the art world’s veins. There were a couple of standout exhibitions, including Janet Cardiff at The Cloisters, Balthus at the Met and Gagosian, and the first-time show of work by the French artist Serena Carone at oko in the East Village. I was happy to discover oko, which is a wonderful, intimate, jewel-box-like space on 10th Street, and a great counterbalance to the big-box spaces and mega-shows of Chelsea.
