Lust and Found
by James Westcott
"This Show Is Ribbed for Her Pleasure," July 14-Aug. 20, 2005, at Cynthia Broan Gallery, 546 West 29th
Street, New York, N.Y. 10001
Cynthia Broan met Andrew Clarkin and Simon Pittuck, the curators of the Keith Talent gallery (named after the heavy drinking darts player in the Martin Amis novel London Fields) at the Zoo art fair in London last year. Now, she’s invited 20 of the Talent stable of clever Brits across the pond for her summer group show. For those interested in new British art, the likeability and lightness of the work here paints a picture of a scene where no-strings-attached pleasure is the dish of the day.
