The Daily Shortlist June 5
Vito Schnabel is pleased to present Laurie Anderson: BOAT, the first exhibition of the artist’s paintings in New York. On display will be a new series of paintings that bring the scale of the theater onto the canvas. The show also includes a video installation, “From the Air”, in which Anderson has created a three dimensional holographic reality. A series of drawings titled “Lolabelle in the Bardo” depicts the forty-nine day transition described in “The Tibetan Book of the Dead” as the period between death and rebirth. For dinner, check out Tortilla Flats. The food is Mexican and delicious, but it’s the insanity within (bingo and hula-hoop nights) that is the real calling for this place. For drinks afterwards, hit the White Horse Tavern, a great bar and the old haunting grounds for Dylan Thomas. If you somehow have time before all of this, stop by Magnolia Bakery for some of the best tasting cupcakes in the city.
