Last Thursday New York's Deitch Projects hosted a double-whammy of openings with the genius Kehinde Wiley presenting Black Light, an exhibition of photographs that plays with the black male image, and Tauba Auerbach's Here and Now/Nowhere, a multi-media effort composed of paintings, photographic works, sculpture and a custom musical instrument that are all structured around the threshold between order and randomness. We always admire Auerbach's work with it's rich abstract beauty and conceptual depth, and it was a very special treat to see Auerbach playing her Auerglass organ, a two-person wooden pump organ designed by the artist with her friend Cameron Mesirow of the band Glasser. If you are in the New York City area we suggest you visit Deitch Projects where the organ will be played daily at 5pm, Tues-Sat, September 3 to October 17, 2009.
