    As the Daft Punk’s catchy chorus on that song, “I’m up all night to get lucky!”  Well AF did start the night with a fortunate choice last October 24th at Margaret Thatcher Projects with the ninth solo show of William Steiger entitled what else? – LUCKY. Referencing New York with its slivers and shadows of crisp outlines of the water towers, tunnel views, and the iconic Silvercup Studios sign that Steiger optimized the flat treatment into a powerful pull at nostalgia. Other images such as a train car and farm structures can be outside of New York City limits but as instantly recognizable. Seeing such dynamic work, let’s just say we got “lucky” indeed. Oh yeah – it is great to score with ART!
