Regarding Regarding Clementine

Chelsea visitors currently have the opportunity to see the most self-referential--but also the most fun--gallery show to be mounted there since, well, since I'm not sure when.

Regarding Clementine--curated by current NY Times taste-maker, former gallerist, and Gawker editor emeritus Choire Sicha--turns Clementine's gallery into an interactive laboratory for the creation and display of work about the art industry's impact on artists, collectors, and neighborhoods.

Over the course of the show's run, participating artists will be performing, creating, or finishing their projects in the gallery space during open hours. As a result, the exhibition takes on an earnest, high energy, "Hey, let's put on a show!" vibe. (And I mean that in the best sense possible.)

On Saturday afternoon, for example, Eliot Shepard of Slower was completing his contribution. Before the show opened, Shepard photographed several exhibition artists holding signs predicting how much money they expected to make by selling their works in the show. This weekend Shepard photographed gallery visitors holding signs showing how much they spent on art in 2004. (My moment in front of the lens is captured for posterity at right.) He'll add these photos of gallery visitors to his shots of exhibition artists in time for the closing reception.

Regarding Clementine (at Clementine, 526 W. 26th, Suite 211) runs through February 5.
