The Two Percent's recommendations: week of 7 Dec. 2014

Marina Abramovic @ Sean Kelly Gallery (475 10th Ave - at 36th St) thru 6 Dec 2014  Exhibition Website

Marina Abramovic's "blindfolded" show is closing this Saturday!  Love it or hate it, it's one of those "only in New York" experiences that you simply can not miss.  Here is my "how to" guide from a previous newsletter.
 

 

Kader Attia @ Lehman Maupin Gallery (201 Chrystie St), thru 12/14 Exhibition Website

In the Lower East Side, a forest of doors have been sawed in half and "sandwich-boarded", most holding silent megaphones (this is just the balcony view).
