Now that all the kids are back in school and the piles of homework promise to kill the joys of learning in every last one of them. Have mercy and let them out for air with a brisk walk down to the Marianne Boesky Gallery in Chelsea to see Mindy Shapero's show "Breaking open the Head."
No worries, there is not a spot of blood or brain matter to be found in place but rather wires and tribble-like (see early Star Trek episodes) objects that look like they are the strange things you hear rattling around in your head when helping with the new math homework. The sculptures are minimalist in style and each piece feels connected to the next. The clean lines of the wires are lines of an image without the a canvas. The tension of the pieces are in the spin-art looking colors that inhabit their centers or cling and drip off of them.
Perfect for all ages.
