Take our Word for It

Last night we saw an incredible, interesting, and at times, infuriating performance, K.85/K.62 by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Ari Benjamin Meyers, part of this year’s Performa series.

Our chat with Miles Marshall Lewis got us in a New York state of mind. So let’s visit one of our favorite NYC landmarks, the Broken Angel in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The site was built over 30 years by self-tought architect Arthur Wood, but it came to fame as the site of Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, a 2006 documentary film ... Read More »
