Also, don’t forget that we have an opening at the White Rabbit (145 East Houston St.) this Friday from 7-10pm, showing the visual art of Erin Endicott and the videos of Daniel Bertol. Find more details here.

English artist, Gottfried Helnwein, is one of the more powerful artists painting today. His works, large and extremely realistic, are stunningly frightening and beautiful to behold.
Friedman Benda Gallery is located at 515 West 26th Street. This exhibit will be on view until October 23rd.

Don’t miss Laurie Anderson’s current performance going on throughout the weekend at BAM. I’ve got my tickets for the matinee on Sunday. Artkrush (Flavorwire) and Brooklyn Vegan both give this show excellent reviews and state that the show is highly personal:
“She gets personal — many of her musings on death stem from the memory of her own mother’s passing, which was complicated by Anderson’s realization that she didn’t love her parent. Childhood is an equally pervasive preoccupation, with fears for the future and memories of the past always threatening to devour the present.” ~by Judy Berman for Flavorwire
