Martin Beck Restructures the Sequence

Thoughtful and cerebral art can be made well and captivate its audience. AF came to the opening of Martin Beck for The thirty-six sets do not constitute a sequence last April 16th. The wall had photographs of a floral bouquet being constructed or emptied in no particular sequence. There was a mid wall with a video and the burnished floor metal plate provided a skewed reflective mirror of people walking around it.  A really strong outing from one of the more unique and art credentialed spaces on the Lower East Side / Chinatown area. Keep an open mind and you will be able to figure out the rationale of the obvious sequence or its unusual arrangement. Art does not have to be definitive all the time. Sheer brilliance happens when it is out of sequence.
