After 20 hours of travelling (waiting everywhere: 4 hours in London Heathrow, 2 hours at NYC immigrations, for taxis, and another 2 hours in massive traffic jam's etc.) we arrived safely at Factory Fresh Gallery last night. A snowstorm is slowing down New York, and there seems to be no end to the snow pouring out of the grey sky.
The view from our apartment is breathtaking: the city lies under a thick white blanket, and our neighbourhood is so typical New York it almost hurts (no, it doesn't; for us, this is almost a romantic tourist experience you cannot plan for). The flat is basic, but very nice, and it has this gorgeous large living room with seven windows opening up to the street panorama.
We'll be out of our cozy home soon though to meet with Boris Hoppek and Alex Diamond, the protagonists of our show with Factory Fresh Gallery (opening next Friday, March 5th), and buy art supplies. Then it's off to Factory Fresh, to start setting up the exhibition.
If you feel like reading a longer feature about our travels to New York's art fairs since 2007, I just posted a new article over at small-things.eu. Click here to read it.
