Steve Powers’ Love Letter, writ large
Studio Life—Diane Simpson
"Usually there’s something that hits me that I love about an image. And then I use the drawing process to change it into my own. The way I’m going to construct something really makes a difference in how the form changes. One of the things I struggle with is that I want the final product to be related to my initial source of inspiration in terms of retaining the excitement it gave me, but I don’t want the source to be conveyed literally."
From Studio Life by Sarah Trigg, available now.

In 2010, Adam Lerner, the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, did something unheard of in the museum world: he mounted a large exhibition of paintings without first knowing whether they were real or fake. Painted in the Suprematist and Constructivist styles of early twentieth-century Russian avant-garde masters, the 181 canvases had been acquired by amateur collectors Ron and Roger Pollard from a mysterious seller in Germany. The man, who they met on eBay, claimed that the paintings had been found in an abandoned shipping container held in German customs since the 1980s.
This event—which celebrates the publication of From Russia with Doubt, (Princeton Architectural Press)—Lerner’s book on the making of the exhibition and the stakes involved with showing unauthenticated artworks also marks the opening of an exhibition co-organized by MCA Denver and Cabinet featuring a selection of paintings from the Pollards’ collection. The evening will include a discussion with Lerner about the value of inauthenticity and the benefits of not knowing within the modern cultural institution.
Exhibition dates: November 18–29, 2013 (closed Thanksgiving)
Gallery hours: Monday to Saturday, 12–6 pm
Location: Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn (map and directions here)

In this rooftop garden on the Upper East Side is a protected pocket playground, where a green wall contains hanging ferns, mint, and blue fanflowers in a seasonal display above a sandbox. Since the green wall sits directly above the children’s sandbox, nontoxic plants were selected, in addition to edibles such as basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, and strawberries.
