Chain Reaction

The concept behind "Two Friends and So On," a group exhibit at Andrew Kreps gallery, is intriguing. This is sort of a chain-letter art show. The curators contacted one artist who contributed an art work to the exhibit. That artist then asked another artist to add a piece. And then that artist asked still another one. Get it? Well, the end result is, how do we say.... Boring. These works were not created specifically for this show nor did the next artist necessarily try to riff off the previous artist's work. The most "fun" in the show are the little arrows that instruct viewers the chain of whom contacted whom. Here are some pix of the exhibit. You decide. (Images via Andrew Kreps gallery)
