Fall Preview

Louise Nevelson's Sky Cathedral
A flurry of shows and exhibits will soon touch down for the fall, and some will stay through winter. Summer had a few gems (the Louise Nevelson show at the Jewish Museum was an unexpected delight), but also some duds (note to the Whitney: featuring a show called "Summer of Love" will succeed only if you pass out acid to go along with the psychedelic theme; if not—it is a no-go). So I’m looking forward to cutting my teeth on the up and comers. A few that should be worth a trip, and will hopefully stand up to any hype thrown their way: At the
Power Plant in Toronto, "Francesco Vezzoli: A True Hollywood Story!" uses the fictitious remake of a film about Marlene Dietrich as an opportunity to explore the artist’s career-long obsession with celebrity. "Global Feminism Remix" at the Brooklyn Museum is devoted to feminist contemporary art and is a solid riff on the previous exhibition of the same name. The art history student in me is thrilled with the Wadsworth Atheneum’s "Faith & Fortune" exhibition, because it means the return of so many sumptuous Old Masters’ paintings to the museum after years of being shown abroad.
