We managed to put together our weekly event listing through our holiday hangover. It was no small feat, so we hope you enjoy!

Friday, January 4th

Opening: In The The Spring, KANSAS Gallery

On first glance, Strauss Bourque-LaFrance’s upcoming show at KANSAS looks just like most of what we’ve seen this year. Take B Wurtz-style assemblage, in high design aesthetic, silkscreen, and add someglassware, and immediately you’ve got some trendy formalism going on.

Fortunately, this one might match the esthete with content. “In The The Spring” takes its name from “Paris in The The Spring,” which the mind tends to filter as only having one “the.” The phrase sums up what work like this can do best, creating tenuous relationships between objects, getting at the space between language and reality. Plus, the gallery has a track record small shows that pack a punch.
6-8 PM, 59 Franklin Street, Manhattan
