by Charlie Finch

Is Mike Bidlo ready for his auction moment? One might think so now that Aby Rosen has installed a stack of Mike's Brillo Box knockoffs in the Lever House lobby under the direction of curator Richard Marshall. Since performance is part of everything these days, intentionally or (better) not, a group of anti-Zionist rabbis showed up at the opening to protest Aby Rosen's construction of a hotel in Israel, ostensibly on religious grounds, brandishing rather flattering posters of Aby on the picket line.
