Emily Noelle Lambert Idée Fixe at Denny Gallery
No one pooh-poohs the line between painting and sculpture better than this young artist, who’s cracking open her first solo show with Eliz Denny, who has savvy eye for talent. Ms. Lambert clearly mines early 20th century modernisms of all sorts, and she isn’t afraid to set these old time aesthetics up on blind dates (“CoBra, meet Ms. Frankenthaler.”) The title of the exhibition, Idée Fixe, is a synonym for “fetish,” or in other words, a desire, obsession or fixation of the mind; It’s an apt description for how Ms. Lambert approaches these new works. If you’re still on the fence, other highlights include free beer, our idée fixe.
Denny Gallery, 261 Broome Street, New York, 6:00 8:00 p.m.
