Saul Steinberg began making paper bag masks in 1959. In our recent e-catalogue for "Eyes Wide Open: Saul Steinberg and Philip Guston," art historian Antonia Pocock described the masks as “emblems of the artifice of identity.”

Bruce Conner & Ed Ruscha: Smoke and Mirrors

Our current exhibition “Bruce Conner & Ed Ruscha: Smoke and Mirrors” was recommended by Roberta Smith in today’s New York Times.

Smith says “the friendship between these two California artists is not well-known and their aesthetic common ground is largely unexplored. This exhibition takes up the task, with implication that further excavation would reward.”

Be sure to stop in and see the show, which is on view until November 25th.
