Art Review: Down the Rabbit Hole with Mehdi-Georges Lahlou

"Autoportrait à la pastèque" (2010)
NEW YORK---The Merton P. Simpson gallery opened its doors at 6:53pm for its 7pm show--- tireless preparation for what was to come. I followed fellow guests into a small space filled with treasures from all over Africa as well as modern interpretations of traditional art. It was with these aesthetics in mind that the gallery's curator, Alaina Simone, invited French-Moroccan Mehdi-Georges Lahlou to be a featured guest performer last Friday. Catch his solo exhibition "I Do Not Have To Cross The Sea" now through November 19th at the Merton P. Simpson gallery. [link]
