I was perusing the Armory show on 67th Street yesterday and while I was dashing through at lightspeed scanning the dearth of Victoriana, I had to stop to hear the rest of this conversation between two random show-goers:
She, admiring a piece of art: “the duality [of the piece]….it’s incredible”.
He: “Yes, it’s palpable”.
Me, thinking: “gag”.
I always thought that the art lovers in the world that spoke like that were only those mocked fictionally in TV and movies. Not so.
Anyway, if you stop by the other Armory show on 26th Street this weekend, be sure to say hi to Joan Bogart. I spent a couple hours with her yesterday and had a great time chatting. Her signed Meeks cabinet is to the right.
