New Museum

On a sunny November day, my cousin Nate and I emerge from a subway station in New York’s Lower East Side.  We walk the few blocks to the New Museum, an uneven stack of silver-white, aluminum boxes that veers six floors into the air.  Above the entrance an arc of rainbow letters declares:  “Hell, Yes!”

96 Hours in Brussels

I’ve been researching online and in the art press for perspectives on the work of my next guest, Nikhil Chopra.  I was excited to find a video in which he discusses a performance of the work I’m going to see in New York next weekend, Yog Raj Chitrakar: Memory Drawing IX.
