What’s Love Got To Do With It?
by Charlie Finch

Curator Lisa Kirk kicked up her black Prada stilettos at the preview party for her show "Bonds of Love" at John Connelly Presents.

"Yesterday he bought me flowers, but that’s not enough -- we’re through," Lisa announced, breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, a New York City fireman.

This air of defiance permeates "Bonds of Love," a show whose bilge of poorly thought-out press statements and academic catalogue essays purports to be a feminist/anti-feminist critique of male-dominated group shows or conventional female groups shows, or whatever.
