Art In America

“The Crystal Palace”

at Rachel Uffner,
170 Suffolk Street

Drawing from a variety of archives and collections (including that of Richard L. Feigen & Co. and the Estate of Stan VanDerBeek), this group show is named for the London exhibition site of the first World's Fair. Highlights include Daniel Gordon's disorienting collage portraitures and the zany upstairs pairing of Peter Saul's hilarious and terrifying oil painting of a cartoon duck dressed as Rembrandt and an Oldenburg fire hydrant sculpture.
