Top 10 of 2012 // Best Opening: Brant Foundation
Being whisked away for a Sunday afternoon to Greenwich, Connecticut to mingle with the art world elite under a billowing tent, housed on Brant’s own polo fields is a perfect recipe for an opening. The two solo shows this year, Karen Kilimnik and Nate Lowman, each offered a complete artist’s vision, and incorporated site-specific elements that extended the work beyond the exhibition space. Whether Lowman’s ‘readymade’ white Bronco that had belonged to O. J. Simpson or Kilimnik’s Fountain of Youth spilling forth to mirror the idyllic setting, the Brant Foundation remained a terrific destination for a grand fête.
