The Loneliest Sport group exhibition at Spazio Amanita gallery in Soho has 23 works that exclusively concern the sport of boxing. The gallery opening had live sparing matches. I’m personally not into boxing, but I thought the whole set up was just great.
I was thrilled to see a work by Pierre Knop, an artist I’ve been keeping my eye on the past several months. No matter the subject matter, it’s easy to tell it is his work.
A hip looking guy walked into the gallery while I was there, and I could tell he was totally smitten with the boxing ring. He finally asked the friendlier than normal gallery worker if he could stand in it. It was fun to watch him pretend to be a boxer. Wish I could send him the photos I took unbeknownst to him.
