Have you been over to both of Artists Space’s locations to see its beautiful current show, “Macho Man, Tell It to My Heart: Collected by Julie Ault” yet? If not, time runs low: it closes Sunday.
Regardless, if you’re looking to delve into the show a little bit more, tonight Artists Space is hosting a chat between Ms. Ault, the artist, curator and writer whose collection is on view, and Richard Birkett, the alternative space’s curator, over at its Walker Street outpost. The talk is titled “Ever Ephemeral: Remembering and Forgetting in the Archive.” Sounds like it will be a great one. It starts at 7 p.m., with a modest $5 donation. Artists Space has more information.
Just to repeat myself: definitely get over to Artists Space before Monday. It’s a moving show, filled with works by Ms. Ault’s friends and collaborators, like Martin Wong, Louise Lawler, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Carrie Mae Weems and more, which form intricate constellations of influence and support. My colleague Maika Pollack reviewed the show for this week’s paper. Her review is here.
