A lot’s changed in New York since we last heard from Dean Kissick in October. A president was elected and fresh plywood added to store façades, quickly blanketed in new graffiti hearts. Hope and the 5G conspiracy are pretty tricky things.
Spike Berlin has been host to a collaborative show between Ivan Gallery, Bucharest, and Temnikova & Kasela Gallery, Tallinn. Before the final days of the group show, we spoke to the gallerists about the situation in their home countries, and how the show “On Adornments” came together.
