Good evening. For Expo Chicago, Gagosian Gallery has put together the darkest, most cohesive group show I’ve ever seen in an art fair booth. (I’m told it was assembled by Andy Avini, a Gagosian director who is also an artist, which makes sense—it seems the product of an artist’s eye.) One of two entrances takes you past a tough trio of works: Cady Noland’s Mirror Device (1987) comprises a mirror with a metal bar mounted in front of it, from which descend a pistol and handcuffs; the mirror reflects the adjacent silver John Chamberlain crushed car parts sculpture, Women’s Voices (2005). Kitty-corner is a black Andy Warhol Electric Chair.
