Seen & Heard: Walking the Plank

••• Matt Lurrie spotted a makeshift bridge at Beach and Collister: “People were literally leaping at the end.”

••• The salon that David Adams and Frank Rizzieri are opening at 14 Jay has a name: Fourteenjay. They’re expecting to be open in a couple of weeks.

••• Opening Jan. 28 at Art Projects International: “In-Hyung Kim: The Paris Years […] The exhibition features selected works from the artist’s years in Paris and includes paintings and works on paper. In-Hyung Kim moved to Paris in 1978 at the age of 20. She graduated from L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts and lived and worked in Paris as an artist for nearly 30 years before returning to Seoul, where she now lives and works. The paintings in The Paris Years range from boldly and sensitively rendered, expressionistic, multi-media works on paper to more atmospheric works on canvas. The paintings on canvas read as nocturnes, with floral elements appearing out of darknesses red, black or green.” That sentence ends rather prettily, doesn’t it?

••• Num Pang opens an outpost at 200 Water (entrance on Pearl) today.

••• From the Schimmel Center at Pace University: “On Friday and Saturday, February 12-13 at 7:30pm, Schimmel Center at Pace University will present the internationally acclaimed quartet, The Flying Karamazov Brothers. Described as ‘multi-faceted new-vaudevillians at the apex of their ambidextrous and alliterative ability.’ The self-proclaimed eccentric lunatics spice things up with a zany showcase filled with laugh-out-loud comedy, wild theatrics, arcane errata, and astonishing juggling feats.” Here’s video from 1983:

  1. Saw the Karazamovs do The Comedy of Errors at Lincoln Center (late 80s?) and no production since has ever measured up. IIR they are neither Russion nor brothers.
