GARDENS of the ALHAMBRA
May 21 - August 21
of the Alhambra show at NYBG.
sometimes you can't win.
On the way home, I tried to think about where the show had gone wrong. I took a little time, but I figured it out. The show needed a conceptual artist. Someone who would have taken the elements of the Alhambra gardens and transformed the conservatory into a sound piece or some kind of sensory overload. What was missing was a powerful experience.
This show needed someone like Sol LeWit to bring the power of Alhambra gardens to NYBG.
