Art In America

Old Black

at Team Gallery,

47 Wooster Street, New York, NY, 10013

Just in time for the hottest months of the year comes this group show, in which the perennially coolest color comes in for consideration by seven artists. Among the works is Harold Ancart's untitled intervention, for which he taped off a horizontal line high up along the length of one wall and threw charcoal powder at its lower edge; a chunky strip of the material remains at the top, and during the run of the show the powder gradually drifts down, darkening the wall as it goes. Also included are sculptures, prints and paintings by Edith Dekyndt, Robert Janitz, Donald Moffett, Jack Pierson, Mariah Robertson and Banks Violette.
