Last Thursday, the Chelsea crowd converged at Gagosian for a double header:
a major new work by Takashi Murakami (a four-panel painting entitled
"Picture of Fate: I Am But a Fisherman Who Angles In the Darkness of His
Mind") and the first solo exhibition of Anselm Reyle, a Berlin artist fast
on the rise. Reyle's show, "Monochrome Age," consists of shiny, lacquered
monolithic sculptures that the fashionable guests enjoyed viewing (and
viewing themselves in).
