Seen & Heard: Tribute in Light

••• Neat show at Art Projects International opening Sept. 20, if the above image is any indication: “The first U.S. solo exhibition of works by Seokmin Ko […] features select photographs from Ko’s three-year, ongoing project entitled ‘The Square’ [….] A mirror shown reflecting its surroundings is held in a field, or in the sea, or on a road. Two hands gripping the mirror’s edge are the only clue of the holder’s presence. Modernist architecture is featured in other images; here, the human hand, the slight presence of humanity, is seen amidst the reflective surfaces of glass and 
steel construction.”

••• Newly cobblestoned Beach Street has been reopened to traffic.

••• Downtown Dance Factory’s retail space, called Studio 4, is open; you read about it here. Looks nice!

••• The New York Academy of Art’s annual “Take Home a Nude”—or two!—benefit is October 18, but it’s way up at Sotheby’s.

••• The next Tribeca Meet & Greet, organized by the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, is Monday, Sept. 24 (6:30–9 p.m.), at Dance New Amsterdam. Everyone is welcome to hobnob.

••• Last night’s “Tribute in Light” was as spectacular as ever. I took the photo below from a friend’s terrace…. For a terrific behind-the-scenes look at the firing up of last year’s lights, check out Krystl Hall’s excellent photo essays: Prepare the Space Cannons! and Inside Tribute in Light.
