“The Decline and Fall of the Art World, Part I: The One-Percenters”

at Freight + Volume,
530 W. 24th Street, New York, NY 10011

In case you hadn't noticed, the art world is not perfect. This six-person show takes a lighthearted look at the baleful effects of big money on bohemian neighborhoods and the camaraderie they once fostered. Among the indictments are Loren Munk's bright, cartoony maps of the East Village, Williamsburg and other gentrified locales, Karen Finley's record-your-own complaints and confessions booth, and Alex Gingrow's gallery and auction-house wall labels falsely evoking a certain level of success.
