(Eataly carries quarts of Ronnybrook’s yogurt, for those of us who like our yogurt in bulk and with a bit of tang.)

••• The scaffolding is down at 372 Broadway, which is being known as 6 Cortlandt Alley now that the building is being converted and its entrance moved around back. Thanks to T. for the photo.

6-cortlandt-alley••• Press release: “OPENSPACE Nomadic Gallery is pleased to announce its inaugural show”—a solo exhibition by Pipi Deer called remnants—”at its new location in Tribeca [373 Broadway #C14]. The centerpiece of this exhibition is the installation remnants, 40 objects of significance, sealed in zip lock bags, affixed directly to a wall. The sealed bags preserve what is lost: memories, death, beauty; each tracing back to a time and place, mostly forgotten. Each object is heart-felt, with a deeply personal history. These relics have a definite aura, infused with life essence,refusing to be tossed away. Each separate bag and its object holds a life, slowly dying. Also part of the exhibition are two photographs and a piece of sculpture, further fragments of a fading past.
