Seen & Heard: Dinner at Gotan?

••• “I hear that Gotan is working on a plan to be open for dinner, hopefully sometime in April,” emailed J. “It is a boon for the hood. They’re trying to get a liquor license and should know all for sure in a couple of weeks.” Since it has yet to show up on a Community Board 1 agenda, I wouldn’t expect beer/wine/booze for at least a few months.

••• State senator Daniel Squadron has, per a rep, “formally requested that the Senate Corporations committee put the BPCA Board Community Majority legislation on its next agenda.” From the earlier announcement: “Squadron and Glick’s legislation would require that the BPCA Board have a local community member majority.

I’d bet money that this unit is also theirs, probably for guests or family or something and they’re unloading it as well.”

The exhibition offers conceptual investigations, studies of abstract line and form, and imagery as varied as invading soldiers and floral patterns. The works are the result of a range of activity from simply applying ink to paper, to three dimensional interventions, to unorthodox approaches to drawing.” The image below came with the release, but the work is uncredited.
